Stage Play Adaptation of Anti-Corruption Children’s Book, Gbagba, Released in Video Form on World…

first_imgCover art of the book, Gbagba, by Robtel Neajai PaileyIn a recently released video of ‘Gbagba: The Stage Play,’ a diminutive, 8 year-old Liberian child actor proclaims, “In gbagba or corruption, there are never any real winners, only loser.”  On November 20, World Children’s Day, this pithy phrase is particularly relevant because it sums up how corruption—a mainstay in nations both rich and poor—stifles human progress.The play debuted at Monrovia City Hall in Liberia on September 28, 2017 comprising an all-child Liberian ensemble cast trained over a period of five months by premier theater company, Flomo Theater.In the book and its stage adaptation, children navigate the confusing ethical codes of the adults in their lives, in places as diverse as traffic jams, schools, churches and marketplaces. The children express clearly and honestly the concrete ways in which gbagba, loosely translated in the Bassa language as ‘corruption,’ hurts rather than heals society.‘Gbagba: The Stage Play’ was adapted from the anti-corruption children’s book, ‘Gbagba,’ written by Robtel Neajai Pailey, illustrated by Chase Walker and published to critical acclaim by One Moore Book in 2013.The stage play and accompanying highlights video, join a growing collection of multi-media tools adapted from the book to facilitate conversations between children and adults in Africa and across the globe about how to be accountable to self, community, nation and world.In the video and other media outlets, Gbagba author Pailey says that “children are the moral compass of Liberia; they are the moral compass of the world. When they start publicly exposing corruption for what it truly is, my hope is that adults will be shamed into living more honestly, with integrity.”‘Gbagba: The Stage Play’ was made possible through a generous grant from the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA). Massa Crayton, Liberia country representative, who was present at the stage play, had this to say about Pailey’s use of the arts to tackle corruption: “The Gbagba story is a classic example of the saying that children live what they see. Gbagba or corruption is one of the major societal vices they grow up with in the home, community and larger society.“Development of the Gbagba story into a stage play for children, who are the future leaders of Liberia, places premium on a much needed national conversation about the effects of corruption and the more than urgent need to curb it. Special thanks to the children who performed brilliantly on stage. We hope they carry the anti-gbagba message as wide as possible.”Since its publication in 2013, ‘Gbagba’ has been piloted in schools across Liberia as well as placed on the supplemental list of readers for 3rd to 5th graders by the Liberian Ministry of Education and for Primary 3 by the Ghana Education Service.The subject of anti-corruption workshops for children in Liberia, Mozambique, Jamaica, and the UK, ‘Gbagba’ has also been adapted into a song, video and radio drama. A sequel is forthcoming in 2018.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Too Soon to Expect Too Much,’ Liberians Urged

first_imgJohn MannahFormer Liberian media practitioner cautions compatriotsA former Liberian media practitioner has lauded his compatriots for overwhelmingly electing former world soccer icon George Manneh Weah as President, but appealed to them to minimize their expectations by not asking too much too soon.Mr. John Mannah, a former Liberian journalist from the 1980s, instead wants his compatriots to come to their country’s aid in its hour of need.In an interview recently, Mr. Mannah who now resides in the United States, said as a concerned and caring Liberian, “it is my appeal to all my fellow citizens to remain peaceful and respectful to our new government while it tackles the many economic and social challenges it has inherited; it is expedient to understand that it is too soon to expect too much.”Mannah, however, asserted that understandingly the citizens are right in their high expectations of the new government to deliver on its campaign promises for which he said President Weah received over 60% of their vote; “but we are aware of the fact that the last months of the immediate past government going through a fractured economy.”“In light of these hurdles, President Weah cut short his honeymoon and hit the ground running, and accompanied by a high power team paid his first official visit to friendly governments in Africa and Europe, and major world financial institutions for assistance to help implement his campaign promises of a government with a pro-poor policy,” Mannah.On President Weah’s ongoing call for a referendum on granting citizenship to non-negroes and dual citizenship, Mannah was non-committal, but urged the government to concentrate for now on the more immediate pressing areas such as jobs, business opportunities, remedy the menacing underprivileged youth, especially the “zogos,” quality education, and health care for the masses who decided he was the best preference among 20 other aspirants in the last Presidential elections.“We must never forget that despite our political differences, building Liberia will rest solely on the shoulders of all Liberians; only Liberians through a united resolve will take this country to be among other developing African countries,” Mannah challenged.Mannah who briefly worked with this newspaper in the 1980s recalled that former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf came to power in 2006, and was faced with a similar situation now facing President Weah;”a broken economy and a broke government with near empty coffers.”For the sake of emphasis, “I am challenging President Weah to pay keen attention to the social welfare sector of the country, which is presently in a non-functional  state  and plan better programs for the amelioration of the lives of our people.”Concluding, Mannah admonished Liberians not to lose sight of the fact that Liberia will rise again and even be better under the Presidency of George Weah; “but first let us put our high hopes and expectations aside for now and give the new leader the chance to deliver on his promises.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Wasteful Sharks pay the penalty to Simba

first_imgThe game was forced into penalties after a barren draw in regulation time in a match that didn’t provide much of attacking spectacle from either side.On spot kicks, despite carrying with him a knee injury picked up late on in the match, keeper Manula saved two spot kicks as the Tanzanians kept on course their former coach Dylan Kerr’s dream final against his current employers Gor Mahia.Pascal Ogweno saw his spot kick rise over the bar before defender Geoffrey Shiveka saw his poorly taken kick saved by Manula. Haruna Niyonzima scored the first for Simba with skipper Husssein ‘Tshabalala’ Mohammed skying his.Eric Kipkurui scored Sharks’ third before Erasto Nyoni kept Simba in the lead. Harrison Mwenda stepped up and scored and Sharks thought they had gotten back to the game when Paul Bukaba’s shot came off the underside of the bar.However, skipper Juma made a mess of his kick giving Manula an easy save and Mkude made the most of it, scoring the decider.Simba SC keeper Aishi Manula clashes with Kariobangi Sharks forward Eric Kapaito as he came out to clear a cross during their SportPesa Super Cup clash at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on June 4, 2018.

However, he was slow to pull the trigger with only keeper Aishi Manula to beat allowing Jonas Mkude to race back, apply some bit of pressure on him and his eventual shot was weak.20 minutes later, he had an equally glorious opportunity to score, but once again his finishing was non-existent.Sven Yidah won the ball in midfield, toe poked to Duke Abuya on the right who raced into it and slit in a low cross with pace but Kapaito who was running into the six yard box unmarked failed to give the ball the slightest of touches to direct it into the net.Apart from those two chances, Sharks had not threatened much with Simba keeping the ball, passing it across the park with ease but did not create danger upfront.Simba SC defender Hussein Mohammed turns away from with Kariobangi Sharks forward Duke Abuya during their SportPesa Super Cup clash at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on June 4, 2018.

In the 21st minute, Francis Manoah also had a chance off an Abuya cross, but he directed it wide.Simba made an early change six minutes to the break Juma Rashid coming on for Ally Shomari.There wasn’t much of goal scoring chances in the second half with the closest being a tap from Abuya off a Sidney Lokale cross in the 75th minute.Lokale had been brought on for the wasteful Kapaito but he too could not make an impact and was hauled off for Erick Juma late on. 0Shares0000Kariobangi Sharks forward Harrison Mwenda vies for the ball with Simba SC’s Erasto Nyoni during their SportPesa Super Cup match at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on June 4, 2018.

Treasurer discloses 7 years of returns

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant “The treasurer said all along he was planning on releasing his tax returns, and that’s what he’s done here today,” said Angelides campaign spokesman Brian Brokaw. “He’s running for governor now. That’s why he’s released his returns.” But the Westly campaign faulted Angelides for not releasing more returns, saying the public should know more about his private-sector activities before he took office. “He failed to provide information on his business dealings as a Sacramento land developer,” said Westly campaign spokesman Nick Velasquez. “That begs the question: What is he trying to hide?” Angelides was a real-estate developer and consultant in the Sacramento region before running for treasurer in 1998. He sold his business when he took office, but continued to earn millions of dollars in deferred payments from past services while treasurer, as well as substantial income from dividends, interest and capital gains. If elected governor, Angelides said Thursday, he will put his family assets into a blind trust, just as Schwarzenegger has done. Angelides’ returns indicate he gave about $210,000 to charity. As treasurer he earns around $138,000 a year, though his campaign said he took a voluntary 5 percent pay cut in 2003. SACRAMENTO – Under pressure from challenger Steve Westly, state Treasurer Phil Angelides revealed seven years of tax returns Thursday, saying he earned more than $11 million from investments and business interests and paid more than $3 million in taxes from 1998-2004. Angelides, who is battling state Controller Westly for the Democratic nomination for governor, released seven years of state and federal returns nearly six months after Westly released 10 years of returns. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger released his returns during the 2003 recall campaign, but has yet to do so as governor, though his campaign has said he will. Westly has been issuing frequent challenges to the treasurer to release his returns, but the Angelides campaign said Thursday’s release had nothing do with prodding from his rival. Reporters were allowed to view Angelides’ returns for 1998-2004 in his attorney’s office, but were not allowed to make copies. His campaign said the 2005 returns will be released when available. The release of the returns highlights the fact that all three major candidates for governor are multimillionaires – Angelides from real estate; Westly as a former executive of eBay who earned $225 million over the 10 years, mostly from stock sales; and Schwarzenegger is estimated to have made hundreds of millions of dollars from his movies, as well as business and real-estate interests. Political analysts noted when wealthy candidates release their returns, it benefits the public, but also reinforces the idea that they are in a far different socioeconomic class than average voters. “The fact that all of them have gazillions of dollars makes the average voter feel like they’re a separate class,” Barbara O’Connor, director of the Institute for the Study of Politics and the Media at California State University, Sacramento. “But they already think that. It just reinforces their feeling.” Harrison Sheppard, (916) 446-6723 harrison.sheppard@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Glenea started well and pressed hard for the opening goal and were denied twice in quick succession on 20 minutes when both Ciaran Mc Geady and Darren Mc Geever saw efforts come back off the cross bar. As the half progressed Milford came more into the game and on 35 minutes went close when Paddy Peoples headed over from a corner. In the 2nd half the home side started well again but were unable to create a clear cut chance and were made to pay on 60 minutes when Gary Merritt drilled home a free-kick form the edge of the box, to put Milford ahead. Glenea continues to press and were awarded a penalty for handball on 70 minutes which Darren Mc Geever converted. Both sides tried hard to find a winning goal but were unable to really trouble either goalkeeper until on 89 minutes when, after good work by Christopher Cannon down the right wing, his cross found Eamonn McHugh at the back post and he buried the ball into the net. However the drama was only starting as Milford found an equaliser deep into injury time when Gary Merritt’s attempted effort form outside the box was deflected home into the net by Mark Flood. Milford then almost took the lead when PJ Hagan’s drive across the six yard line just failed to be turned into the home team’s net. Just as it seemed a draw would result the ball broke to Kevin Mulhern 25 yards out and his effort could only be parried by the visiting keeper and Darren Mc Geever reacted quickest to slide the ball home. Best for Glenea were Dean Gallagher, Kevin Mulhern and Lee O’Brien, while Joey Cullen and Gary Merritt were best for Milford. Referee: Ed Moore.Drumoghill F.C. 0 St. Catherines 1St. Catherine’s are back in the title chase after this vital victory over league leaders Drumoghill F.C. at The Moss. Brendan Maguire’s strike on 70 minutes was the difference on the day and this result will give hope to the chasing pack. Drumoghill did have chances but St. Catherine’s edged the contest over the course of the 90 minutes and will feel they deserved their victory. Paddy Rafferty could have put the home side in the lead on 12 minutes before St. Catherine’s had chances in a first half that was shaded by the visitors. Maguire’s strike on 70 minutes gave Paul McCauley no chance with the ball taking a slight deflection of the unfortunate David O’Carroll.Temple Domestic Appliances Division OneLagan Harps 3 Kerrykeel ’71 F.C. 1Lagan kept their promotion hopes alive with this win over a dogged Kerrykeel side. Kerrykeel had the first real chance when Sean Patton broke through on five minutes but shot over. Lagan began to dominate possession and Gerard Hilley and Philip Doran went close. Lagan took the lead on twenty minutes when Chris Toner was pushed in the box and Glen Gallagher converted the penalty. Lagan continued to press and Marty Brogan had a shot from the edge of the area well saved by Shane Sandilands. Lagan almost increased their lead on fifty minutes when a long ball from Travis Crawford bounced awkwardly forcing Shane Sandilands to push over. Lagan made it 2-0 on fifty six minutes when Gerard Hilley pulled the ball back for Mark Hunter to score. Kerrykeel pulled a goal back on eighty two minutes when Andrew Friel seized on a poor kick out. Although Jason Quinn pushed his shot on to the bar Barney Mc Bride tapped in. Shane Sandilands then pulled off a great save from Mark Hunter. Mark Hunter tied up the points when he smashed home from twenty five yards when Chris Toner set him up. Best for Lagan were Chris Toner, Marty Brogan and Glen Gallagher. For Kerrykeel Shane Sandilands pulled off some fine saves and centre backs Conor Mc Fadden and Michael Mc Devitt were excellent. Referee: Maurice Laverty.Lifford Celtic 0 Raphoe Town 3This was a scrappy game played in very heavy conditions in the Greenbrae. Both teams cancelled each other out in the first half until Raphoe caught Lifford out with a quick corner routine and right back Christy Bogle struck a sweet shot into the top corner from an acute angle. Roulston came close for Lifford with a great left footed strike which looked like it was going in but hit both posts and incredibly stayed out. Raphoe took control early in the 2nd half after a cross from Jamie Gallagher was turned into the net by Seamus Bogle. Raphoe got the 3rd soon after when Gallagher got on the end of a free from the right. Lifford created a few half chances after this but in fairness Raphoe were comfortable by this stage. Team performance from Lifford, Gallagher and Mc Brearty were best for Raphoe.Donegal Town 5 Cranford United 3Played in beautiful conditions in the Hospital Field, league contenders Donegal Town looked the stronger of the sides from the start. However, contrary to flow of the game, it was Cranford who took the lead 20 minutes into the first half, a wonder strike from Andrew Kelly sailing past the Donegal keeper and into the top right-hand corner. Donegal failed to settle following the goal and Cranford capitalised, Caolan McGee finding the back of the net with another terrific strike. In the dying minutes of the first half Donegal’s tenacity was rewarded when Daniel McHugh managed to squeeze the ball past the keeper and centre-half from a tight angle. Donegal were on the offensive! Within 2 minutes Donegal were rewarded, Ray Mc Groary made the most of a free header and Adrian Ward made no mistake in converting from close range. 2 – 2 at half time. The second half began in much the same style as the first half had ended. Donegal Town dominated play all over the field. Ciaran O’Reilly bossing the high ball in the middle of the field while Brighton and Joe Mc Intyre on the right and left wings continued the onslaught in attack. The pace of David Graham proved a problem for Cranford’s back line, and Donegal reaped the benefits when five minutes into the second half Graham’s cross found Adrian Ward on the back post, 3 – 2 to Donegal. Mc Intyre’s relentless efforts were also rewarded when he too found the back of the net with a long-range effort, 4 – 2 to Donegal and the game looked over. Cranford didn’t give up. Andrew Kelly once again scoring before the 90 minutes was up. The game was wrapped up by David Graham for Donegal, an outstanding first touch and a tidy chip to finish beating the Cranford number 1. The game ended 5 – 3 to Donegal.Keadue Rovers 1 Gweedore United 1(No Report Submitted)CT Ball Division TwoDeele Harps 3 Curragh Athletic 0Deele welcomed Curragh to The Athletic Grounds on a great day for football. The home side were slow to settle and careless in possession but still created a couple of clear openings but their finishing was poor. The deadlock was broken on 32 minutes when following a succession of corners, a cross from open play from Kevy Mc Brearty was flicked on by Darren Gillespie and centre half Thomas Mullan fired home from 12 yards. Deele huffed and puffed in the second half and spurned a few good opportunities. The Deele rearguard was well marshalled by Thomas Mullan and the brilliant Gary Crawford meaning Chris Roulstone saw little action in the Deele goal. Deele increased their lead on 58 minutes when Kevy Mc Brearty’s pinpoint corner was met with a bullet like header from Thomas Mullan. Deele had their tails up now and put the game to bed three minutes later following good approach play involving Paul Lynch and a Shane Gallagher one two with Kevy Mc Brearty saw the Deele Player/Manager firing home the decisive third goal. Deele had a number of great performances on the day but Gary Crawford was the pick of the bunch with another solid display at the back.Copany Rovers 3 Letterbarrow Celtic 4Copany hosted their local rivals in a keenly contested game. Letterbarrow started the brighter and hit Copany with two quick goals. Copany then came to life and scored two goals through Thomas Given to draw level . Copany had their tails up at this stage and took the lead through Lee Doherty to go into at halftime 3-2 to the good. The second half was a much tighter affair and on 60 minutes Letterbarrow equalised. And it was the away side who snatched the victory on the 92nd minute from a corner. Team performance from the visitors, Thomas Given best for Copany . Eany Celtic 2 Dunkineely Celtic 2(No Report Submitted)Knockalla CupCappry Rovers 0 Cockhill Celtic 1Ulster league champions Cockhill Celtic advanced to the next round of the Knockalla Caravans Cup when they defeated Cappry Rovers in Cappry Park by one goal to nil in an entertaining game. Both teams created numerous chances in the opening minutes with both defences and keepers busy. Cockhill came more into the game as it went on but couldn’t find a way through the home defence. Cappry’s Aaron Kelly had a great chance in the thirty seventh minute when he broke with only the keeper to beat but he was taken down by the keeper outside the area. Cockhill got the breakthrough in the forty seventh minute following a free kick when Malachy Mc Dermott scored at the back post with a header. Following this Cockhill put the pressure on in search of the second goal but Cappry held firm and were unlucky not to score themselves. This was a spirited performance from a Cappry team that are struggling in the Premier Division but with more performances like this one they could pull themselves to safety from the bottom of the table. Darren O’ Leary, Darren Mc Gowan and Rory Dunleavy were best for Cappry. Best for Cockhill were Malachy Mc Dermott and Jason Breslin. Referee: Joe Mc Hugh.Old Orchard Saturday DivisionOrchard F.C. 2 Glencar Celtic 1On a fine day in Rathmullan Glencar Celtic hosted Orchard United. Orchard started brightest and were a goal up inside 5 minutes when Gibby nipped in to slot home. Sean Sweeney then made it 2-0 from the penalty spot. The second half was a tough battle with the Orchard defence standing tall with Rory O’ Gorman, Orchard’s best player on the day, in no mood to concede. Mark Graham did however score to bring Glencar back into the match when he headed home Garvin Grieve’s cross. Orchard held out for the win. Player/Manager Junior Russell rolled back the years with a cameo-roll at the end. best for orchard Rory Gorman and the evergreen Paddy O’ Kane was best for Glencar. Referee: Peter Fox.Drumbar F.C. 2 Strand Rovers 2The away side started the better without causing too much trouble for the back four of the home side. They went ahead however from a free kick after twenty minutes. It wasn’t long before they doubled their advantage. This wakened the hosts who went on to dominate the remaining seventy minutes of play. Enda Brogan got one back when he latched on to Gavin Bennett’s corner to score. Daniel Bennett equalised for Drumbar when he converted from the penalty spot after Ray Balogun had been fouled. Drumbar passed up two great chances to take all three points but will be happy with this great fightback against Strand who were always dangerous on the counter attack.Glencar Inn Saturday Reserve DivisionGlenree United Reserves 4 St. Catherines Reserves 1The home side went behind early in the first half when they conceded from a corner. Glenree responded quickly through Dylan Mc Bride when his lobbed shot went over the keeper. Patrick Mc Geever put the home side ahead with a close range finish after good work down the left by Glenree. The lead was extended to 3-1 on the hour mark when Micky Buchanan found Denis Doherty in space on the edge of the box and he rifled home giving the keeper no chance. St. Catherines pushed forward and had some opportunities to pull a goal back but the scoring was rounded off when Doherty delivered a dangerous corner that ended up in the net to make it 4-1. Great team performance from Glenree especially Denis Doherty. Referee: Ed MooreDonegal Town Reserves 2 Milford United Reserves 3Donegal Town took the lead 10 minutes into the first half. Ben Sweeney slipped the ball through the Milford defence to David “Ted’ Bustard. Bustard then brilliantly chipped the keeper from a narrow angle. It wasn’t long until Milford were back on level terms. Nathan Hegarty’s free kick was tipped past the Donegal keeper by Milford’s Adam Bolton. Hegarty had a chance to put Milford a goal ahead but his second free kick went narrowly over the bar. The sides were level at the half time break. Donegal came out with intent in the second half and Joe Lafferty put his side back on top. Lafferty jumped highest and headed Gary Ward’s corner into the Milford net. It wasn’t long until Milford levelled the scores for a second time. Milford were awarded a free kick on the edge of the Donegal box. This time Hegarty hammered the ball onto the underside of the Donegal crossbar. Milford now with the initiative took the lead soon after this. Some tidy passing opened up the Donegal defence to leave Scot Mc Bride one on one with the Donegal keeper. McBride fired the ball low into the corner to seal all three points for Milford.Curragh Athletic Reserves 0 Keadue Rovers Reserves 1Keadue came close in the opening minutes before the Curragh fought back, and this is how most of the game played out with the Curragh progressing well down the wings, and Keadue strong through the middle. Anto Mc Hugh in the Curragh net did well from Keadue’s long range shots, and the Keadue keeper saved well, in particular from a one on one with Gary Heaney. On 65minutes the Curragh were reduced to ten men. Ryan Green beat the Curragh defence and McHugh dived at his feet and brought him down. A quick substitution to replace the keeper, but Green’s firm strike nestled in the corner with Woods diving the other way. Keadue were subsequently reduced to ten men when, having used all their subs, one of the players was forced to leave the action through injury. James Sweeney then saw red for a second bookable offence and the sides were once more reduced to favour the West Donegal side. Best for Curragh was Stephen Sweeney. Referee: Brian O’ Kane.Cappry Rovers Reserves 0 Glenea United Reserves 2This game was played in excellent conditions in Cappry. The away team pressed for a goal in the first half but were unable to break through the home team’s defence. Cappry were dangerous on the break and also had chances to open the scoring. Cappry had the first chance in the 2nd half when Conor Laverty brought a good save from the Glenea keeper. The game’s opening goal came in the 57th minute when Glenea were awarded a penalty which was well finished. The game was a close affair and both teams had chances to score but the score remained 1-0 until the 70th minute when Glenea doubled their lead. Glenea controlled the last 20 minutes and closed out the game to win 2-0. Referee: Barry HunterCastlefin Celtic Reserves 3 Drumoghill F.C. Reserves 0Castlefin registered another home win to maintain their slim title chances against a stubborn Drumoghill side. The hosts started the brighter and Matthew O’ Rourke fashioned the first chance but his shot flashed wide. The hosts took the lead in a flowing move when James Mc Menamin played through Brian Dooher who slotted home after 15 minutes. The visitor’s came into the game and created a few chances through Ethan Mc Cready and Caolan Mc Monagle but Simon Mc Menamin stood firm in the home goals. The second half began with the home side on the front foot and they had numerous chances to increase their lead through PJ Mc Menamin and O’ Rourke but they came to no avail. The second goal finally arrived in the 70 minute when O’ Rourke received a short corner from the right and he rifled a shot into the top corner. Best for Castlefin: Brian and Paddy Dooher. Best for Drumoghill: Ethan Mc Cready DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEFIXTURESSaturday 19th March 2016 K.O. 2 p.m. (Unless Stated)Old Orchard Saturday DivisionArranmore United v Orchard F.C.Fintown Harps AFC v Drumbar F.C.Glencar Celtic v Mulroy CelticGlencar Inn Saturday Reserve DivisionMilford United Reserves v Erne Wanderers ReservesCurragh Athletic Reserves v St. CatherinesKeadue Rovers Reserves v Drumoghill F.C.
