LMA Election Rigging Case Ruling Tuesday

first_imgA rift between members of the Liberia Marketing Association (LMA) resulting from allegations of election rigging intensified yesterday at Civil Law Court ‘A,’ with members exchanging harsh words outside the courtroom.The election, held on February 18 of this year in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, included 556 delegates from the 15 counties, where Madam Alice Yeegahn secured 70 percent of votes among 10 presidential candidates.Members of LMA leave the Civil Law Court exchanging harsh wordsThe court issued a “Stay Order” on the induction of Madam Yeegahn and other elected officials due to a statement by petitioner Elizabeth Sambullah’s legal team, accusing outgoing president Madam Lusu Sloan of being behind the rigging of the elections in favor of Madam Yeegahn.Judge Yusif Kaba, hearing the case, decided to reserve his ruling on whether or not the court should nullify the result of the February 2017 election as requested by the defeated candidates, including Madam Elizabeth Sambullah.Kaba’s decision came after entertaining final legal arguments by lawyers representing both parties (Sloan and Sambullah).Madam Sambullah’s lawyer alleged that outgoing president Sloan was seen canvassing and recruiting voters for Yeegahn.Atty. David Woah claimed that the Elections Commission knew very well that the outgoing president was supporting Yeegahn but permitted her to select the 53 voters from their Central Office in Monrovia, and distributed voters allotted to each market in Montserrado County.Woah further argued that the commission chose to conduct the process during the night without any voter education, and permitted two of the LMA’s security officers, one of which, he claimed, was Abraham Ballot, a supporter of Sloan and Yeegahn.He also alleged that the pair allowed Ballot to be assigned to the controversial Polling Center #3, “where Ballot was seen holding hands of some of the illiterate voters and placing them on spaces provided against the name of Yeegahn.”In counterargument, Sloan’s lawyer, Cllr. Sunifu S. Sheriff, said the allegation of denying people from participating in the process was misleading and erroneous.He argued that the allegation was far from the truth, because the LMA constitution does not give the president the right to select a delegation for any election. “It is the Superintendent of the County that is responsible to select voters to vote in an election, contrary to the claim,” he added.Cllr. Sheriff also argued that those selected to vote from their respective counties were given the opportunity to vote, “and they voted.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Outgoing President Lusu Sloan LMA leaves the Civil Law Court yesterdaylast_img read more

Baucham, West complete sweep

first_imgFor Brian Baucham, it was just another day at the office. West Torrance’s multi-talented running back put up the eye-popping numbers to lead West Torrance to a 42-7 victory Friday night over visiting North Torrance. “It’s the same thing for us every week,” Baucham said. “When the offensive line is opening holes like they did, it’s hard not to put up numbers.” Baucham posted the gaudy numbers after rebounding from early-game mishaps that saw him lose two fumbles in the first half. “We were a little slow to start, but it didn’t take us long to get going,” Baucham said. NONLEAGUE: Running back runs wild as Warriors go to 5-0, including wins over all three Torrance schools. By Matt Lopez STAFF WRITER Five touchdowns, 206 rushing yards and 337 total yards. They would be impressive single-game stats for just about any team. North attempted to limit Baucham’s effectiveness by punting away from him, but the plan backfired as Baucham proved he can make just as much of an impact without the ball in his hands. North punted seven times with five of them sailing out of bounds to keep the ball away from Baucham, giving West starting field position deep in North territory. “They wanted to limit his touches, but by doing that, they gave us great field position to work with,” West coach Greg Holt said. The field position was key in Baucham’s five touchdowns, three of which came on runs and one receiving. But Baucham’s first, longest and possibly most dazzling score of the game was a 98-yard kickoff return following Kyle Cryer’s 21-yard touchdown run on North’s second series of the game. “The blockers looked at me and told me to take it to the house,” Baucham said. “I found a few holes and just ran.” The win completed West’s sweep of its three city rivals (Torrance, South and North) and gave West its third consecutive victory over the Saxons. “We talk about it, but ultimately it’s a mythical achievement,” Holt said. “Our focus is to play well and get ready for league play.” Cryer was one of North Torrance’s lone bright spots in the game, carrying 11 times for 71 yards and the game’s opening touchdown. The night, however, belonged to Baucham. His final touchdown came on a 33-yard pass from quarterback Ronnie Clark near the end of the third quarter. “Brian is amazing, we know that we can give him the ball and great things will happen,” Clark said. Marc Oslund started the game at quarterback for West, ending any thoughts of a possible quarterback controversy. But Clark took over following West’s second series after Oslund re-injured the knee that kept him out of last week’s game against South Torrance. “He may have come back too soon,” Holt said. “He was feeling good before the game, a little sore but he looked ready to go.” Oslund’s status for next week’s Bay League opener at Mira Costa is unknown. What is known is that it won’t make much of a difference who lines up under center for West as long as Baucham is lining up behind him. “I don’t know what I can say that I haven’t already said,” Holt said. “He’s such an impact player and we love getting the ball in his hands.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BABY STEPS WITH ÁINE: SIMPLE WAYS TO MAKE THIS FATHERS DAY A SPECIAL ONE

first_imgBABY STEPS WITH ÁINE: Hi everyone. As father’s day is nearly upon us, I’ll be sharing some simple ideas to help make it a special one.I’m sure a lot of you mums will agree that far too often we take fathers for granted; we’re too quick to huff or point out something they haven’t done or something you’ve done “wrong.” In the hectic world of parenting, we often forget to slow down to recognise and acknowledge all the things dads do right and well.Being a dad is no easy task. As a new mum, I now have a better understanding and appreciation of fathers. They do so much for us from the minute we are born and most of it, we’ll never even know.So, father’s day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate and thank dads for everything they have done.I’m sure you’ll agree when I say dads are probably the hardest people to buy gifts for. But don’t worry, showing your love and appreciation doesn’t always have to come in the form of a gift. Here are some simple thing I’m sure dads will appreciate.Breakfast in Bed When you think of breakfast in bed, Mother’s day is a natural association. But what about dad, doesn’t he deserve it too? I don’t think there are many dad’s out there that would say no to this one. It doesn’t have to be perfect. They’ll be so surprised they’ll probably be happy with a cup of tea and bacon butty. If you’re feeling a bit more generous why not go for a fry or something sweet. With the Sunday papers and some peace and quiet, it will go down a treat.Quality timeTime is one of the most precious things that can be given. It is the quality of that time rather than the quantity that will matter the most. We often find it difficult nowadays to give people our full attention. We are too easily side tracked by the world of social media rather than enjoying the moment. We’re all guilty of it. Father’s day only happens once a year so abandon your phone for a few hours. Take this day to focus on spending time together as a family. Celebrate your dad.  Go for a walk, have a picnic, share stories and just have a laugh. If you’re away from your dad this father’s day, why not plan a day another day for some quality time. A quick phone call or meaningful text will also brighten up his day.A day off When asking Will what he’d like for father’s day, he did not hesitate in telling me he’d love a day off. I’m sure this is the answer most dads will give….if they’re brave enough. Although it’s always a great idea to have that quality time I spoke about , you can also show them you care by allowing some time for him to relax on his own. Maybe all he’d like is to snooze, go for a cycle or enjoy some tv. Let’s be honest though, it will more than likely involve some beer and the Euros. They’ll appreciate the short break. They deserve it after all.Tell him you love himThis is probably one of the simplest but most important ways of showing your appreciation. As a child I remember telling my dad I loved him every night. As we get older, we fail to use these words as often. We should be proud to love our fathers. When said with sincerity, these three words are the most powerful words in existence. So if you love him, tell him.For all you fathers who are reading this, you guys are great and we’d be lost without you! Have a lovely Father’s Day!Thanks for reading,Áine  xBABY STEPS WITH ÁINE: SIMPLE WAYS TO MAKE THIS FATHERS DAY A SPECIAL ONE was last modified: June 17th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Baby BlogBaby Steps with AinecolumnDaddyFather’s DayFeatureslovenewslast_img read more

Mayo GAA’s Stephen Rochford congratulated Dublin on their win, and said “it just wasn’t meant to be.”Dublin fans are ecstatic with their hat trick, and Mayo fans are understandably devastated. It’s all over and the curse continues.
