UN, Do not Turn Liberia into Rwanda…!
Solomon Myers (November 2003)
In the wake of the threat by the Mandingoes to renege on their agreement to disarm due to they cry for nomination to senior government positions, there is need to review the Mandingos proposed political structural plans in Liberia.
The Mandingoes have asked for key positions ranging from nominations as deputy head of central bank, chief of staff of the new national army and head of the government's customs and excise department.
These key political and/or governmental power positions being taken over by Mandingoes will lead to chaos, since they will serve as Guinea’s “remote control”.
I recall the late president of Sierra Leone, The Honorable Stevens, had inferred that Guinea posed a problem for the “blood” relationship that existed between Liberia and Sierra Leone. Charles Taylor has however, broken some of this relationship due to his nefarious role in Sierra Leone’s war.
It is a travesty that Guinean Muslims wish to take over the realm of power in Liberia.
Liberia should not be hijacked by foreign countries, and all Liberians must stand untied to put an end to this vicious cycle.
We do not want to end up like Rwanda did!
