Liberia today: The complex picture of a country in transition

Lydia Sackie still remembers the day she saw her parents being dragged away by Samuel Doe’s soldiers during Liberia’s first civil war, in the 1990s. It was the last time she saw them.

Winner Williams saw her parents die in the Ebola epidemic that killed nearly 5,000 people between 2014 and 2015. She was 10 then.

Today, Sackie, 26, and Williams, 14, live at an orphanage in Chicken Soup Factory, a small town outside of Liberia’s capital, Monrovia. Both are survivors of the trauma that has wounded this small West African country in recent decades. Read more...

Garbage Overflow In The Streets Of Monrovia: The Impact On Human Health And The Environment.

The world has a garbage crisis. All nations generate an estimated 1.3 billion tons of garbage annually, and that number is expected to grow in the coming years. The United States, China, Brazil, Japan, and Germany account for the largest proportion of garbage generated, according to an LA Times story written by Ann Simmons. Overpopulation, urbanization, industrialization, the lack of regular trash collection and disposal are key drivers for the surging garbage crisis.

Middle to high-income countries like China, Brazil, Japan, Germany, and the United States can manage their garbage through an efficient collection and disposal system, coupled with bioconversion technologies that produce fuel for electricity generation. These countries are also able to collect and dispose of 90% of their waste. Unlike low-income countries, many of which are in sub-Saharan Africa, less than 30% of their waste is collected and disposed of. More than 2/3 of their waste is openly dumped. Read more...

The long, sordid history behind Trump’s ‘go back’ to your country comments

When President Trump tweeted on Sunday that four congresswomen should “go back” to the countries they came from, he was writing the latest entry in a centuries-old story equating whiteness with American citizenship.

His attacks on the women, three of whom were born in the United States and one of whom is a naturalized citizen, echoed an idea that cropped up in the early days of the republic, informed the abolition movement and the Civil War, justified strict immigration quotas in the early 20th century, and forced Barack Obama, the first black president of the United States, to produce his birth certificate for public inspection.

ICE has begun raids to round up undocumented immigrants, official says

Washington (CNN)Immigration authorities have begun conducting raids, a senior administration official said Sunday, in an operation expected to target about 2,000 undocumented immigrants ordered by courts to be removed from the country.

The raids, which will focus on recent arrivals to the country, are slated for Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco, a senior immigration official said. New Orleans is also on the list, but the city tweeted last week that US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it would suspend operations through the weekend in areas hit by Tropical Storm Barry.

It's time for the African Union to put a stop to 'third-termism'

The AU needs to take action against the Guinean president's attempt to change the constitution and extend his rule.

Two issues have dominated the attention of the African Union (AU) in the last weeks: the upheaval in Sudan and the launch of the African Continental Free Trade Area. In the midst of these, a brewing crisis in Guinea seems to have skipped attention.

Guinean President Alpha Conde, the West African country's first democratically elected leader, who is currently serving his second five-year term, is supposed to leave office in 2020 under the rules of the 2010 Constitution. However, the 81-year-old is thought to be seeking ways to orchestrate a constitutional change that would allow him to run for a third and even a fourth time.  Read more...

EU, World Bank Donate Waste Management Vehicles to Monrovia and Paynesville

MONROVIA, Montserrado- The city governments of both Monrovia and Paynesville have received huge boosts to tackle issues of waste management that have gradually overwhelmed their capacities.

Major streets and market facilities are characterized by the huge stockpiles of garbage in Monrovia and Paynesville. Residents and commuters complained of the bad odor and threats it poses to their health. Read more...

Ghana's president wants Africa-Europe relationship to change

Nana Akufo-Addo says the continent must 'take our destiny in our own hands' and transform dynamic with Europe.

Africa must change its relationship with Europe if it wants to become self-reliant and exploit rich resources that could transform the continent, Ghana's president has said.

"Africa and Europe are natural partners ... but [it's] a relationship that has to be different from what we've had up to now," Nana Akufo-Addo said on Thursday following talks with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron. Read more...

Odyssey to Europe

Liberian and other African migrants narrate their ordeal through North Africa in search of Greener Pastures

Migrants from West Africa taking up the journey through the Sahara Desert set off convinced that it’s a smooth ride, once they make it Libya or Algeria. The notion is that when they pass through Morocco, they can easily sway their way into Europe, but many of them now regret those thoughts.

The perilous and torturous journey leaves the migrants with two possibilities – survive or die. It is a survival of the fittest challenge as the desperate migrants risk their lives through the diverse illegal routes with the help of their ‘transporters’ (smugglers) cutting through vast lands belonging to no man, no government.
