Migration and the Role of Governance and Internet Actors

Most Liberians know of folks who have migrated, especially as a result of the 14-year Civil War. Others migrated in search of better opportunities, loved ones, or simply because they felt the desire to.

An Open Letter to Africa Voters

Dear Fellow Africans, It is my prayer that this letter meets you in peace. Lately, our beautiful continent has been the embodiment of the “Hyena and Hen” theory- a theory for the situation in which power and authority are given to the wrong people with the expectancy of positive results.
