Atty. Kofi Woods: Bryant’s Quest to Resist Gov’t

first_imgFormer Public Works Minister, Samuel Kofi Woods, has described late NTGL chairman Charles Gyude Bryant’s wish that government “must not participate in his funeral ceremony” as a “voice of protest from the grave.”Former NTGL chairman Bryant recently passed at the JFK Memorial Hospital in Monrovia as a result of heart failure, doctors confirmed.Before his death, Bryant drafted his ‘will,’ and in that document, family sources confirmed, “Bryant does not want the Liberian government’s involvement in his funeral”.Mixed reactions greeted the pronouncement when it was released by the family to the media. Many supported the deceased’s wish while others argued that the responsibility for Bryant’s funeral, as a former statesman, belongs to the government of Liberia; and as such, funeral arrangements should be the responsibility of government along with family members.Over the weekend, Atty. Woods joined the quest to resist the involvement and presence of government during the funeral.”If Chairman Bryant had a wish, I say that it should be carried out to the fullest,” Atty. Woods declared.He frowned on critics who argued against politicizing Bryant’s death, noting that former Chairman Bryant lived as a politician. He served as former party chairman and interim head of state of Liberia, another political office; he lived and died as a politician. As such, he said, his death has evoked mixed reactions from members of the public.“It is expected that events and developments surrounding his demise will be the subject of political debate,” he indicated.Woods went on to say, “It’s a reality that we need to confront. I say, if Chairman Bryant had a wish, we should respect it because his voice is a protest from the grave. He is raising our consciousness as a nation even in his death. He sends a clear message to this society and leadership about a new value system, about an order gone wrong and about a society on the sad path of reversal. This is a silent protest and former chairman Bryant is saying to you in his sample way, that his legitimacy must come from the Liberian people,” the human rights activist intoned.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Don’t fence me out

first_img“My customers can’t park along Hadley because it’s all a red zone. I’d like to know why they put it up,” he said. Assistant City Manager Nancy Mendez said city workers installed the fence last week to secure the property, the site of the former grocery store. The building is scheduled to be demolished this summer, Mendez said. The Whittier City Council originally planned to build a library on the property, which it purchased in the late 1980s. However, after two unsuccessful attempts to acquire state library bond money, the city is pursuing a mixed-use residential and commercial project for the site. WHITTIER – Ever since the city erected a fence around the former Alpha Beta supermarket property last week, business at the El Comedor Restaurant has dropped by half, the owner claims. Edwin Alfaro said the empty parking lot behind his restaurant facing Hadley Street had been the most convenient place for his customers to park. Now, patrons of his Salvadoran eatery are electing to stay away in droves rather than walk the extra distance from the street parking along Comstock Avenue, he said. “My income has dropped about 50percent since they put in that fence last Thursday,” said Alfaro, who bought the restaurant in November. Officials hope that revenue from that development will eventually subsidize a new library. At the City Council meeting Tuesday, officials narrowed a list of eight potential developers to three. They hope to have final plans presented to the council by June 19, according to city documents. “The fence is meant to prevent or reduce vandalism and to prepare for demolition,” Mendez said. “We’ve had a lot of graffiti issues and window etching there. It’s already bad enough to have an abandoned building, but to have etched windows on it is worse.” Additionally, vandals have repeatedly broken into the old grocery store to steal materials, said Jeff Collier, community development director. “We’ve had people breaking in and stripping the copper wiring out,” he said. “They’ve even broken pipes and flooded the place once. We finally decided to secure it.” Whittier police Officer Olivia Fisher was patrolling the area Wednesday. “We’ve had problems with skateboarders in that lot,” said Fisher. “The main problem with open lots is skateboarders, vandalism and graffiti.” pam.wight@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
