Mr. Jefferson Koijee 'We careless about the media criticisms of this government.'



On Tuesday, March 13, the City Mayor of Monrovia, Mr. Jefferson Koijee, warned that the CDC-led government, which he actively participated in helping to win state power, won’t be intimidated by media reportage. 
A LOCAL MEDIA HOUSE QUOTES him as saying: “We stand tall to work for our people and careless about the media criticisms of this government.”
HE WENT ON TO SAY THAT THEY waited for 12 years to ascend to their various positions of power and so whether they go wrong and are told about their ills, they are not going to be bothered by whatever the Liberian media says about their deportment.
A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE MAYOR made his trivial comment against the media, two important lieutenants, Deputy Information Minister Eugene Fahngon and Deputy Managing Director at the Freeport of Monrovia, Mrs. Celia Cuffy-Brown, had made very incinerating statements against the media.
SPECIFICALLY, EUGENE ACCUSED Liberian media practitioners as people who called the President “dull” and said all manner of ill things about him. He went on to say that the media would remain poor or broke for the next 12 years. Now this is only if they are going to win another six-year mandate from the Liberian people after they shall have completed the first mandate.
FOR CELIA, SHE DESCRIBED AS “nonsense” media reports of how she has handled things at the Freeport of Monrovia.

'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.

Wilmot Collins will be Helena’s new mayor, unseating incumbent Jim Smith in a close race Tuesday. 
Collins, 54, will be the city's first new mayor in 16 years after running a long campaign based in progressive principles.
“The people of Helena have spoken, and I am honored to be able to serve them,” Collins said as the night drew to a close. “I intend to work with commissioners, work for the people of Helena and find what is best for this city.”Collins also sought to praise Smith for his work over the past decade and a half.
“I commend Mayor Smith. He’s done a great job for the city, and I hope to work with him in the future," Collins said. 
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 …
