Quotes

At the workshop, Fabian Nkomo, IndustriALL’s Sub Saharan African regional secretary, said, "Uwul has the potential to build itself and it can raise resources from within to fund the organising initiative without needing outside support.”"
..."They have blocked the entire road, no way to go into town," said an eyewitness. "The police not allowing people to cross because the water too deep there; so you'll just turn around because no road down there."
"I would like to restate my position that this year's independence celebration whose venue has been changed be celebrated as a national fast and prayer day to pray for our country. In the midst of all these trying sign of our times, we must turn to God. Now that the venue has been changed and all national issues festering, it is prudent to do this. This year's budget must be used to support victims of the increasing flood and victims of Ebola"
"This is not a Nimba issue, Rep. Tokpah is a member of the 53rd National legislature and as such by the content of our constitution, he deserved protection under our law."
