Dr. Sawyer Responds to Accusations on Constitutional Matters

first_imgThe crafter of the 1986 Constitution of Liberia, Dr. Amos C. Sawyer, has clarified that after drafting the new Liberian Constitution and submitting it to President Samuel Kanyon Doe, the President adjusted some parts for reasons not disclosed.Dr. Sawyer has over time been accused by some Liberians for crafting a constitution that made Liberia a secular state and gave lengthy tenures to legislators and the president.Based on this concept, the Constitution Review Committee, now headed by Cllr. Gloria Musu Scott, has solicited the views of citizens on the tenures of the president, senators and representatives, which will form a part of the referendum expected to be held next year.Making clarifications in an exclusive interview with this newspaper last weekend at his Governance Commission office, Dr. Sawyer indicated that he and his 25-member National Constitutional Commission structured the tenures of president, senators and representative as six years for senators and four years each for the president and representatives.Contrary to this structure, said Dr. Sawyer, President Doe recommended 9 years for Senators and 6 for the President and Representatives.Dr. Sawyer also told this newspaper that the appointment of Superintendents was structured to be done by the President in consultation with local leaders who would recommend three persons from among whom the President would choose one for each county. He also said the drafted constitution demanded the setting up of a judicial service committee to evaluate the Chief Justice and other justices of the Supreme Court and the judges, but that was left out by President Doe when he reviewed it.On the issue of making Liberia a secular state as enshrined in the 1986 Constitution, Dr. Sawyer said that in order to not create the feeling of discrimination and exclusion by any group, they agreed to make Liberia a secular state with everyone practicing his/her religion without harm to the other.He also argued that the 1847 Constitution did not make Liberia a state of one religion, but clearly stipulated that Liberia is a country wherein everyone is free to practice his/her religion without harming or offending others.The Constitution of 1847 Article 1 Section 3 states: “All men have a natural and unalienable right to worship God, according to the dictates of their own consciences, without obstruction or molestation from others: all persons demeaning themselves peaceably, and not obstructing others in their religious worship, are entitled to the protection of law, in the free exercise of their own religion; and no sect of Christians shall have exclusive privileges or preference,over any other sect; but all shall be alike tolerated: and no religious test whatever shall be required as a qualification for civil office, or the exercise of any civil right.”Arguing on this provision and the need to enjoy peaceful coexistence in the country, Dr. Sawyer said he stands opposed to the call for making Liberia a“Christian state” and that it will not mean well for the country if such a decision is made.He said the National Constitution Commission that drafted the 1986 Constitution did better work and reached all Liberians with the message than the current Constitution Review Committee (CRC).

Lifting the Voices of Three Little Girls

first_imgIn late October 2014, as the Ebola outbreak raged on, three little girls, ages 5 to 10 lost their only parent. Little did anyone know that the 10 year-old was a recent victim of FGM (female genital mutilation) before she lost her mother.“They cut me and put a leaf there,” she stated in a previous article titled ‘They cut it and put a leaf there’ published on June 25, 2014.There’s hope after allBlessing has become everything for her two sisters. Though they stay home more often instead of walking around hoping for sympathetic gestures or handouts as before, they still yearn for something.“Right now we need to go to school and start doing what we used to do when mama was alive. It doesn’t feel right being on this earth without our mother, but people have been telling us that our lives have to go on,” said Blessing.Blessing’s 5-year-old niece, who was abandoned by her parents and raised by Blessing’s mother before her death, has a skin condition that needs serious medical attention.“I have itch all over my skin, and only my grandma knew the medicine to make it go away. I miss her,” the friendly child whispered.Blessing not only has to make sure that her sisters stay in line and follow the rules where they now find themselves living, but she also has to remind them constantly where their mother really is.“My sisters remember seeing our mother’s body lying on the ground right after she passed away, but they still like to ask me where she is. I tell them that she’s in heaven with God.  It’s easier to accept that mama is gone knowing that she’s with God,” added Blessing.Blessing, who says she learned a lot from the Sande bush when she was taken there, now depends on the skills she learned while in the hands of the Zoes.“They taught me how to be clean, cook and some other things that I am able to use to help my family. I’m still frightened of walking alone and being sent back to the Sande bush, but glad that I learned those things while in there,” she added.Meanwhile, now that school is said to be opening, Blessing and her two siblings have no plans of going. It is not because of lack of funds or sponsorship to go, but because they say they have never really been to school.“I went for a couple of years but stopped going in the past three years because of my mom. She didn’t make enough money from selling doughnuts and other things. So, school for me is not important now, unless maybe someone is willing to help us go,” Blessing said.Where there’s a will, there’s a wayMeanwhile, the three children have started taking life a little simpler. Instead of moping around about losing their mother, they visit other orphaned children in the communities to sympathize with them.“Ebola is still here and we keep ourselves safe, but sometimes I just like to see the faces of other children who went through what we have suffered. And I tell them my story and we shed tears together,” Blessing added,” I know that my mother misses us, and I miss her a lot too. I just want to let other children know that we have to be strong,” she added.Blessing has accepted that change will one day come, and though she has been asked to move to another location with her teenage sister, she says change has to come.“My sister says I need to move away from here so I won’t be reminded of my past. I was kidnapped here and also lost my mother here and she’s afraid other bad things could happen to me if I remain here,” she said.” I just worry for the two smaller ones, they’re gradually forgetting our mom, but through me they are reminded that something special brought us here,” she says.Blessing’s sister, Vivian, has already prepared to take her to another location in Liberia and has promised to wait for whatever assistance that could be rendered to the child before she goes.“Yes, I want to see help come for Blessing because I don’t have it. But the way I see things happening, Blessing needs to get away from this place so she can come to herself. She’s not okay,” added Vivian.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Stripped of sign, club takes city back to court

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! INDUSTRY – A strip club is getting a second hearing to appeal the city’s decision to force the club to turn off its animated display sign. Dale Manicom said the club did not get a fair appeal hearing. So the city has agreed to let the club speak at a City Council meeting scheduled for Thursday. The new hearing is in response to a lawsuit Manicom filed on behalf of the club. Manicom claimed club officials never got a chance to cross-examine city employees. He said they were allowed only three minutes to make their case and that city officials did not make clear how the club violated the city’s ordinance. He is seeking attorney’s fees and permission to reactivate the sign. City Attorney Michele Vadon said the city gave Deja Vu a fair hearing. Representatives from the club were welcome to talk to the city’s staff, she said, and advocates for the club could have taken all the time they needed. “I’m not sure their attorney had all the information he needed,” she said. “So we’re just going to do it again.” City officials forced Deja Vu`s owners to deactivate the sign in May after police officers noticed workers overhauling it without a permit, city officials said. According to city law, no new electronic signs are allowed in the city without a special permit. Signs already installed can be operated until Sept. 12, 2008, according to city law. City officials claim Deja Vu essentially made the sign new when they overhauled its electronic system. Manicom had little to say about the case, only that he wanted to save his arguments until the hearing. He did point out, however, that the city has an electronic display sign near City Hall.

Donegal has some of the largest families in Ireland!

first_imgLarge families have not completely disappeared in Ireland. There were 64,248 families with 4 or more children, 16,646 families with 5 or more children of which 4,845 families had 6 or more children. Donegal, Cavan and Monaghan had the largest families with 2.19 children per family on average.The average age of the Irish mammy is increasing – the average age of a first-time mum is now 32 1/2 – more than two years older than the age of 30 in 2000, and six years older than 26 in 1985. Aeidín (Cor) Sheppard, of the Central Statistics Office says; “People are waiting a little bit longer to have children, that’sfor first-time mothers and then overall the age is increasing as well.“We are having smaller families but the larger families haven’t died out completely, there were 64,248 families in the country with four or more children, that seems to be quite prevalent in Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan where we have the largest families, with an average there of 2.2 children per family.“That’s well above the national average, so we still have lots of large families in the country. We have 4,845 families that have six ormore children.”Ireland’s birth rate is the second highest in Europe at an average of 1.92 children per women, just behind France at 1.96. As mammies have their children at an older age, their children don’t leave the nest for longer. In 2011, 439,000 adult kids stayed at home with their parents; 180,700 were working, 138,000 were studying and 98,000 unemployed.“There’s lots of people still living at home and being looked after by mammies and daddies, maybe we make them too comfortable!“I know I have a 22-year-old at home, who’s not in too much of a rush to run out of the door at the moment anyway.”As women have their children at an older age, it’s also a sign of improving health on a national level. Krysia Lynch of AIMS Ireland says; “You’ll find that women who are having children later tend to have much better health themselves, they tend to have had some sort of a career and are in middle-income earning brackets so they look after themselves well.“Also research shows having children later, whilst your energy levels may be lower, your capacity to deal with the mental and emotionalrequirements of parenting tends to be more robust.” Out of the 66,000 women who gave birth in 2015, almost a quarter of them (14,500) were non-Irish according to the CSO.New mums were more likely to be bringing home a baby boy in the same year as there were 33,619 boys born compared to 32,290 girls.Donegal has some of the largest families in Ireland! was last modified: March 25th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:childrenCSOfamilyMother’s Daylast_img read more

Government continue providing humanitarian assistance following Inishowen flood

first_imgMore than sixty families have received Stage 2 humanitarian assistance payments from the Department of Employment and Social Protection following the catastrophic flooding that struck Donegal two and a half months ago.The Stage 2 payments are to assist families to replace items of furniture and electrical goods lost in the flooding which hit Inishowen on August 22 and 23 this year.Government Chief Whip Joe McHugh TD said more than 140 families were also given emergency payments in the initial Stage 1 phase to help with the purchase of food and clothing in the hours after the flooding. Stage 3 payments will cover more long-term repairs such as rewiring and re-plastering of affected homes.“All three stages of the scheme have been operating since August 23 with 61 families having already availed of Stage 2 payments,” said Minister McHugh.“A further 15 payments for Stage 2 are pending and to date more than €260,000 has been paid out to families. I’m grateful to Minister Regina Doherty and her Department staff who are continuing to work to deliver the humanitarian assistance programme.“The final stage of payments – to repair homes – has so far paid out to three families with another three payments pending. A number of other claims are expected as repair to homes continue.” Cllr Bernard McGuinness said: “I want to thank Social Protection staff in Carndonagh and Buncrana who have worked diligently for the past 10 weeks to help affected families to get back on their feet.“I would urge all families who have availed of Stage 1 and Stage 2 payments so far and who require assistance in home repairs to apply for Stage 3 help now.”The Government has not set a limit on the amount that can be paid to an individual household under this scheme.Levels of payment depend on the relative severity of damage experienced and the household’s ability to meet these costs ensuring that the funding is appropriately targeted.The scheme is demand led and there is a time-lag between the flooding event and actual claims for financial support. Total payments to date are some €263,000. It is unclear at this time the total level of funding that will be required to return homes to a habitable condition however it is expected that the value of payments under the scheme will increase as we continue to move into Stage 2 and Stage 3 supports.In relation to the flooding incident in Killybegs on the 4th of October, to date only one householder has submitted an application to the Department for assistance and an Officer of the Department has visited the person in question.Government continue providing humanitarian assistance following Inishowen flood was last modified: November 8th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Department of Social ProtectionFLOODINGInishowenjoe mc hughKillybegslast_img read more
