The workaholic President

One can only imagine what it takes to be a President of Liberia these days, at age 65 the Liberian president shows no sign of slowing down, last week she was in the united states where she was hugely successful in having about 700 million dollars of Liberia 's debt forgiven, the president than went home, where she received a massive welcome all the way from the airport to central Monrovia by a grateful nation, for her leadership in helping to restore hope and respect to a nation that has known nothing but war and anarchy for years.

The next day she was off to Guinea, along with president Kabbah of Sierra Leone to see how they can be of help in stopping the political crisis in that country. and finally she is in Rwanda this week on a five days official visit as guest of President Paul Kagame.

One thing is for sure, the president hard work is starting to pay off, investment into the country is starting to pour in, government revenues increased about 20% as compare to the year before, and there is finally a sense that things are beginning to change for the better.
