Minister Kwame believes Timothy Weah's decision should not be politically twisted.






Liberia Deputy Sports Minister, Andy Kwame does not think Timothy Weah’s decision to play for Liberia is an indictment on his father, President George Weah.
The younger Weah is said to be preparing to make his debut for the USA despite his dad being the leader of Liberia on March 27.


According to the 18-year old it is an honor to get his debut call-up from the USA national team for the friendly against Paraguay .Though Timothy Weah is following his father’s footsteps by playing for French club PSG took an unpopular decision by ditching the Liberian national team.
However, Minister Kwame believes Timothy’s decision should not be politically twisted.
 

“I don’t want this to be taken as a political issue because he has the right to take any decision because he is 18years old. He has the option to play for three countries Liberia, Jamaica and USA so it no indictment at all.
“President Weah played for Liberia, captained and sponsored the team and so we rewarded him with the Presidency,” he told Starr Sports.
The younger Weah only recently turned 18, but can already boast two first-team appearances for French giants PSG on his CV.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
The feeling was festive as Collins received a call from U.S. Sen. Jon Tester congratulating Collins on his victory. Victory cigars were passed around the room at the …
