He said it is because of this long-standing cordiality that journalists have always been there for security people — taking interest in highlighting their plight when working conditions appear unfavorable for them. Mr. Paye-Layleh, one of those on the frontline in the media battle against attempts at muzzling the press in Liberia, was speaking when he interacted with a group of checkpoint security personnel in Monrovia after the Press Union of Liberia’s meeting on May 8. He told them to respect the authorities of government but they should also remember that discretional and rational decision-making is key to all security operations globally. The journalist further reminded checkpoint security that only media people will always be available and accessible to listen to their concerns when, for ethical reasons, they are unable to make their own case publicly.

Some of us watched in horror in 2007 when the Gambian dictator Yahya Jammeh claimed to the world that he had found the cure for HIV/AIDS. How did President Jammeh come across a cure when the international community of scientists had been working feverishly for decades and could not find a cure? Raejolina’s claims about the potency of Covid-Organics is an entrepreneurial move by an entrepreneur who wants to profit off of the global panic buying of anything that resembles a cure for Covid-19.
