Message to the Gambian People from Kenneth Y. Best, Founder and Former Publisher of the Gambian Daily Observer

My dear People of The Gambia:

I greet you in the Mighty Name of Almighty God, whom most of you call Allah, and hasten to extend to you all my heartfelt congratulations and felicitations on your successful Elections of the past two days, through which you ousted from power President Yahya Jammeh, and freed your country and yourselves for his tyrannical rule.

Stop Double-dealing with One-China Policy

As indicated in the InProfile Daily Newspaper Vol. 9, No. 010, Thursday, November 24, 2016 edition, the Liberian Association of Chinese Trained Scholars (LACTS) takes serious exception to the communications written by former speaker George Dweh to the authorities of Taiwan requesting to establish official trade links with Liberia in total disregard of the One-China policy resolution signed into law by the National Transitional Legislative Assembly, which Mr. Dweh served as speaker.

Homosexuality is not a Crime: Let He Who is without Sin Cast the First Stone

During the recent visit of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Liberia, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf responded to a question posed by a Canadian journalist about what her government was doing to protect members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community (LGBT). She rightly responded and I couldn’t agree with her more ‘that it was not illegal to be a homosexual in Liberia. She went on to say that “Liberia has no law that restricts the rights of individuals to their own choices. Only when it is a threat to national security do we have a law that has restrictions.

Why Castro's Honor is Undeserved

I have followed keenly many of the praises showered on the dead Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro. I find these praises undeserved. Some of my respected friends, frontline advocates in pro-democracy movements, have come public with military gear and military style salute to honor a man whose life has not just ruined his own country but has caused deaths and destructions way beyond his borders. He is hailed for supporting the struggles for self-determination in most African nations. But what has become oblivious to many of my friends is simply that this man had no resources of his own.
