Guaranty Bank on Sunday, December 4, 2011 retained the championship of the Liberia Bankers Association (LBA) Annual Sports Tournament by beating Eco-Bank Liberia 5-3 on post match penalty. Regular time plus stoppage time ended scoreless. Also in the kickball version of the tournament, Eco-Bank Liberia walked away with the trophy after Global Bank failed to show up for the encounter. The LBA’s Annual Sports Tournament was held at the Practice Pitch of the Samuel Kanyan Doe (SKD) Sports Complex in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.

The tournament, according to the Chairperson of the organizing committee, H. Lorpu Smith, was aimed at bringing together employees of the various banks as a mean of affiliation.

She said the tournament was also part of activities marking the observance of this year Liberia Bankers’ Week.

According to her, the tournament brought together nine banking institutions across the country.

She said the banks include: the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) and eight commercial banks.

She named the participating commercial banks as: Access Bank, ECO Bank, First International Bank (FIB) International Bank (IB) and Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB).

Others are: United Bank for Africa, Global Bank and the Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI).

“This tournament is geared towards bringing us together because we all have common goal that we must work towards achieving,” she said she added.

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.
