Kerper A. Dwanyen President Elect
After weeks of mud slinging and allegations of gross human rights violations during the Liberian civil war against some of, or at least one of the candidate running for the presidency of the Organization of Liberians in Minnesota, Liberians in Minnesota elected Kerper Dwanyen as their new leader. Dwanyen who onced headed the Nimba Redemption Council, during Liberia’s civil war, was accused by some of his opponent as a rebel who was involved in atrocities against innocent civilians. But at approximately 2:15 a.m Monday, when the last ballot was counted, it was clear Dwanyen had been elected president with 793 votes. The incumbent, Martha Sinoe, came in a distant second with 436 votes, followed by Wynfred Russell (257) and Jackson George (229). Let us hope that now the new leadership of the organization will really get to the business of working for Liberians who called Minnesota home. The first thing the new leadership should address is the constant negative news about the Liberian community in Minnesota, at almost all Liberian gatherings, there are always reports of fights and drugs, this is really sad, and if something is not done about this problem, all of us stand to have our good names ruin by these thugs.
GOD, Country, Family, service before self.............

Liberia In the 60s
The Lone Star forever
The national song
When freedom raised her glowing form on Montserrado's verdant height, She set within the doom of night, 'midst low ring stars and thunderstorms the star of liberty - and seizing from the waking morn, its burnished shield of golden flame she lifted in her proud name and raise a people long forlorn to noble destiny The Lone Star forever! The Lone Star forever! O long may it float over land and over sea. Desert it, no never! Uphold it, forever! O shout for the Lone Star banner, All hail.
