“Strange Happenings” At Capitol Building

E-mail Print PDF

The Director of Press at the House of Representatives, Mr. Isaac Redd, has made a startling revelation, asserting that some staff of the House of Representatives are engaged in “bad work habits” during official working hours. Mr. Redd, who made the revelation recently when he appeared on the Truth FM Breakfast Show, named some of the “bad work habits” as some employees playing cards game and accessing face book during official working hours.

But the House director of press did not disclose the names of the staff of the House of Representatives, who according to him, are involved in such “bad work habits”.  

However, he warned that such approach towards work at the House of Representatives “will have to stop.”

He disclosed that there are plans being put in place for staff   assigned at the House of Representatives to be motivated so as to discourage them from further engaging in “bad work habits.”

In order for the staff  at the House of Representatives to be effective and efficient, Mr. Redd further disclosed, the House of Representatives will shortly address issues regarding their staff  benefits to commensurate with what is expected of them.

At the same time, the House spokesman has said the leadership and management of the House of Representatives will shortly retire some staffers of that august body who he said have “worked and passed the years of working.”

He added that the management and leadership of the House was looking in the direction of ensuring that those who have reached the retirement mark “will be retired with due and appropriate benefits.”

Meanwhile, some legislative observers have described the “bad work habits” of some staff of the House of Representatives as “strange happenings” at the Lower House.  

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the legislative observers warned that the “bad work habits”, if not stopped, could bring the Legislature, particularly the House of Representatives into public disrepute.

Against this backdrop, they recommended that the plenary of the House of Representatives, which is the highest decision making body of the Lower House, to leave no stone unturned in urgently putting a complete stop to the “bad work habit” so as to maintain what they called the integrity of the House of Representatives, yea the entire Legislature- First Branch of government.

Where We Live: By Janez Potočnik

Prosperity for Many or Misery for All? I

In just over a week, world leaders will gather in Brazil for the Rio +20 Summit to decide what kind of future we want. Twenty years after the original earth summit, the theme is the green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication.

Why is the conference important and why the aspirations for a 'green economy'? A green economy is one that results in improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. Growth in a green economy is driven by investments that reduce pressures on the environment and the services it provides us, while enhancing energy and resource efficiency.

Tom Kamara’s Demise Great Loss to Journa

On the morning of Friday, June 8, Liberians woke up to news that one of the country’s best   journalists, Tom Kamara had passed away in Brussels, Holland following a brief illness. The death of Mr. Kamara, Publisher of the New Democrat Newspaper came as a shock to all because no one heard about his illness. I am saddened by Mr. Kamara’s demise because it leaves many questions unanswered. Tom’s demise is a great loss to the journalism profession because he brought honor and dignity to the profession in Liberia. He was uncompromising and never bent the rules to accommodate or appease anybody. His critical but well-researched publications endeared him to critical thinkers and people who respect objectivism. While his critical articles and commentaries endeared him to many, Tom also made a lot of enemies among people who considered his publications as an affront to them.

Poetry Factory : With O. T. Zeongar


Violence, violence, oh violence-you are an undesirable menace;
Those who cleave onto violence always set despicable precedence,
They count on violence to attain corruptible prominence,
So they most times exhibit irresponsible arrogance.

Unification Day; a day for the demonstration of brotherliness, oneness and unity
A day to cherish and pay to Liberia, this ‘sweet Land of Liberty,’ all the solidarity
A day to be proud of and hold fast onto our singular identity of similarity
A day to trash out our differences in spite of whatever disparity
Yes Unification Day.
