Ricks Toweh, Chairman of the Standing Committee on Peace and Reconciliation of the House of Representatives; Dr. Joseph Saye Guanue, a renowned author and professor of history and political Science are expected to make thematic presentations at the occasion which will also be graced by a number of local and international peace advocacy organizations including the youth and student community in the country.BFF president Rev. Augustine Arkoi, giving a historical overview of the National Unification Day celebration disclosed that it draws attention to one of the most pressing issues that faces the country throughout its history. He made reference to the then animosity between the Americo-Liberians and the indigenous population. Rev. Arkoi historicized that under the leadership of President William V. S. Tubman, who led the country from 1944 to 1971, the divide between these two groups was minimized, if not totally eradicated.“In his inaugural address, Tubman introduced his National Unification Policy, which featured among other things an extension of voting right to women and to the country’s indigenous people,” the BFF President pointed out.He maintains that the day reminds Liberians of what they hold in common as opposed to their divergence.According to organizers of the Unification Day peace symposium, Liberia’s distinguished educator and rights activist, Madam Mary N. Brownell will serve as Presiding Resource person during the daylong deliberations.Madam Brownell according to the BFF communication is meanwhile calling on all Liberians at home and in the Diaspora to forgive, love and unite as a prerequisite for a peaceful, secured, and prosperous Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

But we must be more organized if we are to get the desired result while not scrapping our philosophy.KCCA FC lost 4-0 to Club African last season in the CAF Confederations Cup group stages.Mutebi also added that KCCA FC has now earned the respect from other sides on the continent.“The teams we play now respect us as we have provoked the attention with time.KCCA are seated third on the Group A standings with three points from two games, level (points) with Township Rollers but with an inferior goal difference.The Kasasiro Boys lost their first game 1-0 to Township Rollers before defeating Al Ahly 2-0 at Namboole thanks to Ibrahim Saddam Juma’s long range strike and Captain Timothy Awanyi’s penalty in the last 10 minutes.After the trip to Tunisia, they will host Esperance on the 27th of July before welcoming Township Rollers to Namboole mid August.Group A standings after two games:Esperance de Tunis  4ptsTownship Rollers      3ptsKCCA FC                     3ptsAl Ahly                         1ptComments last_img read more
