Improving Housing in Liberia: Pillar to Transformation

first_imgAbout two years ago President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf remarked that her officials were good at developing proposals and strategies about how to address the nation’s many challenges.  The problem, she lamented, was “implementation.”It would be a good thing for the President to appoint a task force to find out which of her government’s policies, strategies and  pronouncements over the past eight years have been implemented, and which have not.  Admittedly, that would  and should be the task of the media itself. One of the many areas upon which public policy pronouncements have been made is on the issue of  housing.  Modern and well   organized housing, even for civil servants, paramilitary personnel, low income dwellers, and the public in general is yet a distant dream in a country still riddled with dirty, diseased-infested slums,  even in the capital city, and everywhere else; and backward and poorly ventilated thatch huts littered throughout the country.This ancient, mean, despicable state in which our people have lived for centuries is in place against the backdrop of significant and impressive housing developments taking place in neighboring countries, including La Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Sierra Leone.  In La Côte d’Ivoire, a US1.1 billion housing expansion project is said to be underway for the building of 5,000 units for soldiers, police, immigration, coast guard, forestry and drug enforcement personnel.  Informed sources say American, Chinese and Moroccan investors are involved in this project.Our sources further indicate that 9,100 lower income homes are scheduled to be erected in Ghana; and similar undertakings are in the works in Sierra Leone.But in Liberia, housing does not seem to be a priority, despite the government’s aim to transform the nation into a “middle-income” nation by 2030.  Right now, according to official sources, the government is focusing on three urgent priorities—power (the Mount Coffee Hydro and mini hydros), ports (Free Port of Monrovia, Port of Buchanan, etc.) and roads (Monrovia to Ganta, Nimba County to Grand Gedeh County to Fishtown. River Gee County and on to Harper, Maryland County.But where will all these wonderful roads lead? To slum dwellings and thatched huts littering the highways, villages, towns and chiefdoms throughout Liberia?  Where will the energy, port and road engineers and other personnel reside; and into what kind of homes and buildings will power transmission lines be installed—in thatched, mat, cardboard and zinc shacks?The Liberian government’s policymakers need to understand that investment in housing throughout the world has a multiplier effect: it impacts everything, including economic growth and employment for large numbers of people.  Better housing inspires many other positive developments, including better schools, shopping centers, recreational facilities and the general wellbeing of neighborhoods and the populace at large.   Without proper housing, yea modern homes even for our lower income population all over the country, Liberia can never hope to become a middle income country by 2030.  For middle income does not only mean sufficient jobs, enhancing the entrepreneurial capacity of the people, good energy availability, better seaports and better roads.  It also means lifting the masses of the Liberian people, at long last, out their thatched hut dwellings and zinc shacks and into concrete homes mixed even with clay, of which we have no shortage in Liberia. In recent years several Heads of the National Housing Authority (NHA ) have announced plans for the building of housing complexes.  Former Director General Charles Harris told Daily Observer that the NHA had begun construction of hundreds of houses in the Juarzon area off the Robertsfield Highway.  What has become of these?     The National Housing Authority has been seriously handicapped by poor funding.  Even the National Legislature, the representatives of the people, cut the current NHA budget from little over US$3 million to US$700,000.  Part of this money was to develop sites in Brewerville and Kakata.  The NHA has managed to partially complete a meager 58 low income housing units in Brewerville, but lacks funding to build the necessary access roads and septic tanks.The government must think again and in the coming year convince itself and our development partners that GOL takes Housing seriously as one of the pillars in the drive toward Liberia’s economic and social transformation.     Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Court Awards US$76K against Chinese Company

first_imgThe commercial court at the Temple of Justice has ruled against Lichi Incorporated, a Chinese sand mining company, ordering it to pay US$76,892 plus six percent interest to several of its workers.The court took the decision last Tuesday in the absence of the company’s representatives.Although throughout the trial the company’s lawyers questioned the credibility some of the witnesses who testified during the case, Judge Richard Klah said: “Having examined the evidence and documents, I found Lichi guilty and they must therefore pay the workers U$76,892 plus statutory interest of six percent.’’ Before Judge Klah’s decision, he asked the court to enter a default judgement against the company since none of its representatives were present in court.In their suit, the workers alleged that from October 2012 to June 2013, they entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) under which they supplied a total of 4,586 loads of river sand to the company, and that under the agreement the company was to pay US$22 for each of the load of sand totalling U$76,892. The company, however, refused to pay despite several negotiations, which led to the suit and the subsequent judgment for the plaintiffs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Diaspora policy languishing before cabinet — Greenidge

first_img– says ‘absentmindedness’ of cabinet partly to blameA policy to have overseas-based Guyanese contribute to their homeland has been languishing before cabinet. According to Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge, this is due to priorities and a bit of ‘absentmindedness’.The policy in question is the Diaspora Engagement Strategy, especially important considering the current development of the oil and gas sector. But according to Greenidge during a press conference on Monday, cabinet is yet to have a look at the strategy.“That paper has been before cabinet for the longest while, and cabinet has not been able to look at it for reasons that have to do with priority, and perhaps a little bit of absent-mindedness; because it’s been done a long time ago,” Greenidge hadPresident David Granger with cabinet after being elected in 2015explained.Government had caught flak, and the average age of the cabinet had come under the microscope after former Chairman of the Police Complaints Authority (PCA), Justice (retd) Cecil Kennard, was asked by Government to step down from his post, reportedly because of his age. President David Granger had reportedly asked Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan to write Kennard, asking him to resign.Political commentator Dr David Hinds had said that if Government has a policy on age, then it needs to make it known while explaining the reasoning behind Kennard’s displacement.“I know of many people in Government service who are nearing 80 and doing good work. There are also some Ministers who are not too far away from 80 years old; should they be removed from Cabinet because of their age? I think not,” he had pointed out.MeetingsMeanwhile, Greenidge explained that successful visits and meetings have been held in Georgia and New York, United States of America and Toronto, Canada. There, the Guyanese delegation met with professional bodies and international companies such as NCR Automation. He was also questioned about exactly what the diaspora meetings would accomplish, and whether they were related to the oil and gas sector.“The discussions with the diaspora do not focus on local content for the oil and petroleum sector. There are discussions, for example in Toronto and Florida in general. In Toronto, a number of agencies and diaspora groups which perhaps specialise in assisting members of the diaspora getting access in business and utilising their technical skills, we met with those, and they indicated in what capacity they can help.“And that information has been passed both to the University, the GTI, the Ministries of Business and Agriculture, to follow up with these persons and groups so they can collaborate and make use of the information being provided. We also met with a couple of firms who are interested in collaborating but in their case, they offered training in a variety of areas.”Last year, it was announced that consultation would be carried out with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM). These discussions were all with the view of creating the strategy.last_img read more

Jurgen Klopp feeling positive as Emre Can’s Liverpool contract talks rumble on

first_img Emre Can (centre) celebrates his Watford wonder goal 1 Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is feeling “quite positive” with regard to Emre Can’s contract despite talks still rumbling on.The Germany international’s current deal runs out in 2018 and he insisted in March the impasse was not about money.However, having seen the likes of Dejan Lovren, Philippe Coutinho, Joe Gomez and Adam Lallana all sign new contracts since the turn of the year, there was a growing sense of discomfort among supporters that Can’s situation could turn into a saga.However, Klopp appears to have no doubts about the future of the 23-year-old, whose brilliant overhead kick beat Watford on Monday night.“He’s watched it on the iPad about 250 times,” joked Klopp when asked about the midfielder’s improvement.“The goal was so important and so deserved. He is a hard-working boy, it was never any different. He always had a fantastic attitude which is what I liked most.“After his bicycle kick probably everyone wants him to stay.“I think it is no secret how much I like Emre. He likes the club and that is a completely normal situation.“We are in talks and there is absolutely no pressure, it is all good.“It is two partners with big respect for each other. If we can keep good players that makes sense for development and he is one of these good players.“I am quite positive.”Despite Can’s goal of the season contender, Klopp admits there are areas the player needs to work on.“The plan is to make a more simple goal in the next game. If you can do this it would make sense,” he added.“Against Crystal Palace he had a chance with one of the best offensive moves we had and he hit the ball with his heel – that’s football.“We have spoken about his calf issues and they are hopefully finally sorted so that helps him.”Klopp also received some good news on Thursday when playmaker Coutinho returned to light training after being forced off with a dead leg at Vicarage Road.The Brazil international is being carefully managed to give him every chance of being fit for Sunday’s visit of Southampton, and Klopp is optimistic about his chances.“Yesterday was the first time for Phil running – he ran a bit like (Liverpool’s goalkeeping coach) John Achterberg!” said the Reds boss.“Good news. We cannot be 100 per cent sure but at this moment it looks rather positive.”Their bid to secure a top-four place was boosted by results elsewhere last weekend and with two of the chasing teams, Arsenal and Manchester United, facing each other on Sunday, which kicks off after the Anfield encounter against Saints, there is the potential for Liverpool’s position to be strengthened.Fifth-placed United are four points behind with a match in hand and Arsenal, in sixth, are nine behind with two additional games to play.Klopp admits he will keep an eye on other results but stressed his side have to take care of their own business.“It cannot be our job to count points, our job is to get them,” he said.“There is absolutely no club in the top spots who can waste points in the next match day: not Chelsea, not Tottenham, not Liverpool, City, United or Arsenal.“No club has the opportunity to rest. We all have to fight with all we have and that makes this league so exciting.“We hear the results or see the other games if we can but it is like (being) a neutral football supporter.“You take the result and work on your own positive result.“We focus on our ways but it is difficult enough without thinking about the other games.“I think we have pressure but I cannot imagine how big the pressure is on them (United and Arsenal).“I like this kind of pressure. It is the best pressure you can have fighting for something but that doesn’t mean it always feels good.“We are in it – that’s positive – but to stay in it we have to win.”last_img read more

Doherty calls for more funding for ‘Scéim na gCúntoirí Teanga’

first_imgSinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Deputy Pearse Doherty is demanding that the Government make additional resources available to the organisations which administer the Irish language schools scheme ‘Scéim na gCúntoirí Teanga’.Deputy Doherty said; “Scéim na gCúintoirí Teanga is hugely beneficial. The main aim of the scheme is to strengthen Irish – our native and first language of the state – as a spoken language amongst the young people of the Gaeltacht.“The scheme is administered by two organisations on behalf of the Department, ‘Muintearas Teo.’ and ‘Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne Teo.’ in the south region. I am confident that everyone will agree that both organisations do sterling work as part of their role to ensure the delivery of the scheme. “There is no denying the support which this initiative provides to pupils from the Gaeltacht with regards to language acquisition and Irish language promotion, and we must also recognise the employment opportunities which are created as a result for those living in the Gaeltacht, particularly for young and newly qualified graduates.“And despite these benefits, the scheme has yet to commence for the current school year, even though September is coming to a close and it is clear that the scheme’s organisers are facing many problems.“I myself have spoken with those responsible for overseeing the scheme, and it’s claimed that the programme is under tremendous pressure and there are stark problems to overcome.“It has been said that there are thirteen additional schools taking part in the scheme this year and, even though there are therefore more participants involved for the academic year 2016/17, assistants have yet to be appointed to them because of Government cutbacks as well as cuts which were made in previous years. “This essentially means that the appropriate language supports are not in place in these school – this is completely scandalous.“I will be raising this matter with the Minister in the Dáil in the coming days where I will be demanding that increased resources are made available to schools as part of this scheme, as it’s only fair that we show our gratitude to Language assistants for the work they carry out and for sharing the language with pupils each year.”As Gaeilge:Tá Urlabhraí Airgeadais Shinn Féin, Teachta Pearse Doherty, ag éileamh go gcuirfeadh an railtas níos mó acmhainní ar fáil do na heagraíochtaí atá freagrach as riar Scéim na gCúntoirí Teanga.Deir Teachta Doherty: “Is scéim iontach tabhachtach é Scéim na gCúntoirí Teanga. Is é príomhchuspóir an scéime ná an Ghaeilge – ár dteanga dhúchais agus céad teanga an Stáit – a neartú mar theanga labhartha i measc aos óg na Gaeltachta.“Tá an scéim riartha ag dá eagras thar ceann na Roinne, Is iad ‘Muintearas Teo’ agus ‘Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne Teo’ ó dheas. Táim cinnte go n-aontóidh achan duine liom nuair a deir mé go ndéanann an bheirt acu obair ar leith mar chuid dá ról chun an scéim seo a sheachadadh.“Níl aon dul as againn ach an cuidiú a thugann an tionscnamh do daltaí ón Ghaeltacht a aithint, ó thaobh sealbhú teanga agus cothú na Gaeilge, agus ba chóir dúinn trácht a dhéanamh ar na deiseanna fostaíochta atá á gcruthú do muintir na Gaeltachta, go háirithe do daoine óga nuacháilithe, ag an scéim fosta.“In ainneoin na buntáistí seo afách, tá an scéim don scoilbhiain seo fós le tosú, cé go bhfuil mí Meán Fómhair ag teacht chun deiridh agus tá sé soiléir go bhfuil roinnte fadhbanna os comhair lucht riaracháin na scéime. “Bhí mé féin ag caint le daoine agus iad freagrach as seachadadh na scéime, agus maítear go bhfuil an scéim faoi bhrú agus go bhfuil neart dúsláin le sárú.“Deirtear go bhfuil trí scoil déag breise ag glacadh páirt sa scéim i mbliana agus, cé go bhfuil níos mó rannpháirtithe san áireamh don scoilbhliain 2016/17, tá Cúntóirí fós le ceapadh dóibh de dheasca na gciorraithe atá á ndéanamh ag an railtas agus a bhí déanta le dornán beag blianta anuas.“Ciallaíonn sé seo nach bhfuil na tacaíochtaí teanga cuí i bhfeidhm sna scoileanna seo – sin scannalach ar fad.“Mar sin, cuirfidh mé Ceist Dála ar an Aire go luath agus beidh mise ag éileamh go gcuirfí níos mó acmhainní ar fáil do scoileanna mar chuid den scéim seo, mar ba cheart go mbeadh muidne fá chomaoin ag Cúntóirí as a shaibhreas teangan a roinneann siad le daltaí achan bhliain gan teip.”Doherty calls for more funding for ‘Scéim na gCúntoirí Teanga’ was last modified: October 2nd, 2016 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)last_img read more
