  1. Mouna Farhad is fool who knows nothing about Liberia because her father is a big criminal ANC can relate.

    1. Fighting a loosing battle. America knows diplomacy respects the rights of a sovereign country. America knows the government of Liberia was legitimately elected by overwhelming majority. If you are a diaspora Liberians that don’t have stake in country pay no taxes and want to interfere in the governance structure of the country, sit down and wait. What can you do for your country not what your country can do for you.

  2. The Culture of impunity is the major reason for which Liberia is divided. We need Justice cause without Justice the minds of our people will never grab the thought of Unity.
