‘Nonsense!’, Deputy Speaker Replies Finance Ministry

first_imgDeputy House Speaker Hans Barchue has described as “nonsense” the Finance Ministry’s counter argument relative to US$5 million allotted for district development.The money was placed in the National Budget for direct district development projects affecting the entire country.Deputy Speaker Barchue had earlier on accused the Ministry of Finance of playing politics with the money, thereby denying rural dwellers the right to delivery of basic social services.He blamed the Finance Ministry for creating unnecessary delay in the implementation of the identified projects.However, reacting to Deputy Speaker Barchue’s claims, the Deputy Finance Minister for Budget, Sebastian Muah, confirmed that the money was on “ice” because of the present budget shortfall that the nation is experiencing.Muah: “Due to the budget Shortfall, the money had to be diverted to other meaningful undertakings of the government. He said the money had nothing to do with the lawmakers because the Constitution does not give them expending power. For the last two years, said Deputy Minister Muah, the Liberian Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE), which Mr. Bachue said was responsible for implementing development projects,  “had not shown a single project that it has completely done with thousands of dollars that it had received from the Ministry of Finance.  “Should we just be spending money when we can’t see any meaningful thing that has been done with the money?” Min. Muah asked.In response, Rep. Barchue described Muah’s assertions as “nonsense and a joke.”In serious laughter, he told reporters yesterday at his Capitol Building office that the Finance Ministry team did not know the real issues.Accompanied by House Speaker J. Alex Tyler, the Grand Bassa County lawmaker declared, “When we get ready for them to account for that money we will call them here.”Asked as to when the public expects to witness the appearance of the Finance Ministry team and what is next for the money, Deputy Speaker Barchue stressed that both houses of the legislature attached serious concern to district development and such allotment remains vital to the process.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Tuskegee Airmen get nation’s salute

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) – President Bush and Congress awarded the Tuskegee Airmen one of the nation’s highest honors Thursday for fighting to defend their country even as they faced bigotry at home. “For all the unreturned salutes and unforgivable indignities … I salute you for your service to the United States of America,” Bush told the legendary black aviators, standing in salute as some 300 of them stood to return the gesture. At a ceremony in the sun-filled Capitol Rotunda, Bush then joined congressional leaders and other dignitaries in awarding the veterans _ most of them in their 80s _ the Congressional Gold Medal. “We are so overjoyed,” said Ret. Capt. Roscoe Brown Jr., after he and five other airmen accepted the medal on behalf of the group. “We are so proud today, and I think America is proud today.” Nearly 1,000 fighter pilots trained as a segregated Army Air Corps unit at the Tuskegee, Ala., air base. President Franklin D. Roosevelt had overruled his top generals and ordered that such a program be created. Even after the black airmen were admitted, many commanders continued to believe they didn’t have the intelligence, courage and patriotism to do what was being asked of them. Not allowed to practice or fight with their white counterparts, the Tuskegee Airmen distinguished themselves by painting the tails of their airplanes red, which led to them becoming known as the “Red Tails.” Hundreds saw combat throughout Europe, the Mediterranean and North Africa, escorting bomber aircraft on missions and protecting them from the enemy. Dozens died in the fighting; others were held prisoners of war. “You caused America to look in the mirror of its soul and you showed America that there was nothing a black person couldn’t do,” said Colin Powell, a retired Army general and Bush’s former secretary of state. Powell, who is black, thanked the airmen for paving the way for his career. Charles “A-Train” Dryden, 86, a retired lieutenant colonel from Atlanta, expressed mixed feelings that the honor came so long after the war and that many of his colleagues had died without knowing that Americans appreciated their service. Just a couple of days ago, he said, a fellow pilot was hospitalized in Atlanta and couldn’t attend the ceremony. “So many of the guys have passed on,” he said. Dryden recalled his pride in returning from Africa and Europe after serving in Tuskegee’s original 99th Fighter Squadron, only to be stationed in Walterboro, S.C., where he saw German prisoners of war get privileges in theaters and cafeterias that were denied to black soldiers. “That was the low point of my career,” said Dryden, who uses a wheelchair. Thursday’s medal has helped convince him that the country recognizes the airmen’s contributions. “It’s really something,” he said at a breakfast before the ceremony. Congress has awarded gold medals to more than 300 individuals and groups since giving the first one to George Washington in 1776. Originally, they went only to military leaders, but Congress broadened the scope to include authors, entertainers, notables in science and medicine, athletes, humanitarians, public servants and foreign officials. The medal for the airmen, made possible through legislation by Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., and Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and signed last year by Bush, will go to the Smithsonian Institution for display. Individual airmen will receive bronze replicas. “It means a lot to a lot of people,” said Ret. Maj. George M. Boyd, 80, of Wichita, Kan., a Tuskegee pilot and adjutant who served 28 years in the military, including in World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam. “There was so much resting on our success or failure.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Duke Abuya came close in the 42nd minute when he dribbled away from three markers inside the box but his final shot went against the side netting.At the stroke of half time, Eric Kapaito’s shot came off the upright when he took a shot on the half turn, the ball bouncing back into Arakaza’s face after being beaten by the initial shot.In the second half though, Sharks came back with utmost determination to pick up at least a point off the tie and nine minutes into the restart, Kamau thundered an equalizer with a well taken goal.The wingback drifted into the edge of the box unchallenged from the right before releasing a well taken shot that beat Arakaza.Sharks kept the possession trying to open up the Homeboyz backline, bat the defense marshaled by Smith Ouko were astute in their defending.As the game wore on, Homeboyz slowly crept back and 12 minutes to time substitute Kikoyo released a belter from the edge of the box catching keeper Oyemba off guard.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
