Pres. Weah Stresses Competition in Electricity Sector, As He Mandates LEC to Expedite Service to Citizens

MONROVIA, LIBERIA:  President George Manneh Weah has mandated the management of the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) to improve the speed and quality of its services to the people of Liberia. He said the LEC is doing little to meet growing demands of the populace thus triggering disenchantment and upheavals amongst the people.

The President said with the apparent lack of adequate capacity on the part of the LEC to improve its services, a viable alternative would be to open up the electricity sector by sourcing out distribution and other services to competent private companies.

“In these modern times, electricity is a basic need for all and my government will not allow anyone play with such a need,” the President said in a meeting with the management of the LEC Thursday, December 13, 2018 at the company’s Waterside headquarters. Read more...

Cllr. Gongloe Stands Against Justice Korkpor

The president-elect of the Liberia National Bar Association (LNBA), Cllr. Tiawan Gongloe, says that if Chief Justice Francis Korkpor were to agree and preside over the impeachment trial of Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh, he would be seen as one conspiring with majority members of the House of Representatives, who have shown disrespect to the Supreme Court and the Constitution of Liberia.

Justice Korkpor is expected shortly to preside over the impeachment trial of Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh by the Senate after a 3-2 vote to deny Ja’neh’s request to prevent the House of Representatives from impeaching him. Read more...

South Sudan, a nation embracing its identity through its skin

In the world's youngest country, skin whitening and the issue of colourism is linked to a complex history.

Juba, South Sudan - A swell of laughs and chatter fills the air as Jemma* greets familiar faces inside Juba's cultural centre, one of the few spaces in South Sudan's capital to offer young people some entertainment.

But the voices get quieter as soon as the conversation turns to a topic that's hard to avoid in this river port city of roughly 500,000 people.

"From the moment we're born, we open our eyes and we know that everything black is bad," Jemma told Al Jazeera, explaining why she is bleaching her skin. Read more...

Uganda party cruise tragedy: ‘Whiskey was flowing freely before boat sank’

Six survivors of a day of fun and revelry that turned into a tragedy after a Ugandan party boat capsized on Lake Victoria tell the BBC's Catherine Byaruhanga what happened.

"The DJ kept irritating us, telling us to balance the boat," says Tashobya Nsubuga.

"A good song would start playing and then you would hear, 'Balance the boat'. That was a red flag already," she says about the moment she knew something was not right on the boat, which capsized 200m (656ft) from the shore a fortnight ago.

The mother of three was lucky to make it out of Lake Victoria alive together with her younger sister.

But many families have been left broken with more than 30 people confirmed dead following the boat disaster. Read more...

Liberia electricity crisis: 'About 60% of power stolen'

People are stealing about 60% of the electricity generated in Liberia annually by making illegal connections to their homes and businesses, the state-owned power utility has said.

The theft caused annual losses of about $35m (£27m), Liberia Electricity Corporation officials told state radio.

This was robbing the utility of cash for extending power supply, they said.

Liberia is trying to rebuild its power sector, destroyed during a civil war which lasted from 1989 to 2003.

The US is giving financial and technical aid to the West African state to increase connectivity, as part of the Power Africa initiative launched by former US President Barack Obama to bring electricity to 50 million people in sub-Saharan Africa by 2020.

But up till now only 12% of Liberians - and less than 20% of residents in the capital, Monrovia - have electricity, one of the lowest access rates in the world. Read more...

The history of families in Liberia

In the years during and after the American civil war, immigration to Liberia slacked off dramatically. The need for new immigrants to augment the population led the government of President Daniel B. Warner to put out a call to the African people of the British West Indies.

In 1864 a delegation was dispatched to the Caribbean islands, headed by Edward Wilmot Blyden, Liberian intellectual, scholar, secretary of state and college professor, who was himself born on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. They carried an official proclamation by President Warner inviting West Indians of African descent to come to Liberia and "create a home and a nationality in the land of their fathers." Read more...
