first_imgOne person was serious injured and the windshield of a vehicle was badly damaged last Friday during the execution of court order.One of the parties had gone to take possession of a building situated on Ashmun Street in Monrovia due to a court order.The structure is believed to be a portion of the Intestate Estate of the Late John W. Taylor that is being managed by one William A. Cisco, who is serving as its administrator.Magistrate Nelson Chineh, then Stipendiary Magistrate of the Monrovia City Court in 2009, heard the matter of the fake administrator title between William Cisco and one Koko Mayors, known as “Koko Cisco,’ where the magistrate established that the original administrator was William Cisco.His decision came after Koko was arrested and charged with theft of property and forgery by the Liberia National Police (LNP) in February 2010.It was however based on the 2009 decision of the court that the Cisco family last Friday decided to take possession of the building on Ashmun Street when the scuffle broke out.Speaking to the Daily Observer yesterday, Charles Cassell, one of the children, alleged that before he was attacked, he took two carpenters to the area to take off the roof of the building based on the court’s 2009 decision.According to Cassell, when they got to the location of the building, he met a group of men believed to have been hired by Koko Mayors, who reportedly prevented them from entering the compound.When he would not comply, Cassell said the other men allegedly jumped on him, started to beat him and broke the windshield of his father’s vehicle. Thereafter, he ran to safety at the Slipway Police Station.He further alleged that Koko’s men ran behind him until they all entered the station.“What shocked me was that the police detained me after Koko went to the station, ignoring my earlier complaint. I don’t know what is happening that if a man takes his complaint to police and without any investigation, the police detained him,” he said.He said it was based on his father’s lawyer’s intervention that he was released from detention.“We are afraid and we don’t know where to go for help, so we are calling on the government to intervene to allow us to get our legitimate properties,” he appealed. Prior to the incident, the Magistrate’s decision for Cassell to reclaim the property was made after the court withdrew the ‘power of attorney’ from Koko Cisco and he was charged by the LNP for theft of property and forgery.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgFrom the moment Jerome Suah’s first song, “Left Alone,” was recorded in 2007, it was received with positive feedback from family members and friends. His dream of becoming a reggae musician was just emerging; and since them, he has never backed down.“It was at that point that I decided to follow my musical career and chose the name ‘J. Younkonde’ as my stage name,” he said.At first J. Younkonde did not realize that being a musician was not going to be a walk in the park or in his case, becoming a star over night. But as time evolved, the young Liberian reggae star put in the hard work required for success.“With all this in mind,” he said, “I instantly got to work, with lots of sleepless nights, each time trying to perfect my musical talent.”After much hard work, one of his biggest breakthroughs came when J. Younkonde started performing for universities and other community events across America, including performances at UB University and the Chadron States College.Finally the biggest moment came when J. Younkonde was given the opportunity to do freestyle with Alicia Keys after getting her consensus to do so on the song “We Are Here.” Not just stopping at this point, the artist has started the year with a new single called “Struggle,” a song that speaks about the social issues in Africa and around the world. The song is making a wave on YouTube.“I feel that my dedication is paying off. As a reggae artist, I’m currently known as one of the best and stand out Liberian artists because of the style of reggae music I do and its powerful message,” he said.Liberia Music Award Foundation Country Representative, Joseph Junior Teah, spoke about him as the LMA 2015 nominee who rocked the stage at that event, and described him as one of the best raw and structured Liberian talents based in the United States, “and the energy he brings to the stage make him unique.”Teah added that the “artist represents change; from Don Bosco life to being a well-defined artist.”Like other Liberian children that experienced the devastating 14 years of civil war, J. Younkonde was separated from his parents at a very tender age. Because of this, he had to experience life in the streets of Monrovia, from one orphanage home to another.He said: “While I was at the St. John Don Bosco orphanage home, I was given the opportunity to attend Feama Community Elementary School and there I began my education sojourn. But not too long when another war broke out, I had to flee from Monrovia to go to my hometown in Grand Gedeh County, my parents’ birthplace.”Years later he was given the opportunity to migrate to New York; where in 2004, he purchased his first reggae album called “Reggae Power,” which was a defining moment on his journey to superstardom.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgA WELL-KNOWN Donegal company is supporting the call for funding to be restored to a programme which helps get unemployed people back into work.Hugh & Grace Ann Downey of Sharp Design are currently work-placing a group of 15 unemployed highly qualified design, multi media & marketing graduates who for most of them have spent the last 1-2 years trying to enter the work place.Said Grace Ann Downey: “The idea came about to approach ‘Begin Again’ after years of frustration on our behalf interviewing designers & web designers. “At interview stage we can immediately identify if they are work ready & unfortunately we have been very unfortunate in getting quality and creative work ready designers.“We identified that there was still a huge gap between graduating from university or college and entering the workplace.“We designed a smart working module that we thought would bridge this gap and we approached ICBE Begin Again, a labour market activation programme funded through the Department of Education & Skills.“Over the past six months the programme has registered over a thousand job-seekers and potential employers. A careful matching process has enabled over 300 work-placements to be established. “Together with intensive and relevant training & mentoring, this has facilitated the return to employment of a large proportion of participants. Of 77% of people who have completed the training and directed work placement to date, 60% have so far been returned to work, commenced self-employment or commenced a career change course of study.”A number of variations of the programme are taking place in the North West involving some 90 participants. But as we revealed on Tuesday, funding has been cut. Director John Buckley (pictured) said he was ‘gutted’.This includes general groups as well as specialised cohorts (GAA Youth Coaches, Forestry Trainees and a Creative Design, Web, Multi Media & E-Marketing Group of Internships).Hugh added: “The programme consists of 12 weeks work placement in a business environment. Their social welfare was not affected during these weeks. They attended positivity & self confidence building training days. They were coached on interview skills, portfolio presentation, communication & commercial sales training on being employed or being self employed.“At the end of our particular programme they received accredited certification in leadership (Fetac Level 5) a European Accredited Certification in Leadership, a complete new CV with work experience and last but not least the confidence to get up & go!” BEGIN AGAIN FUNDING OUTRAGE: DONEGAL COMPANY SAYS SCHEME IS ‘BEST EVER’ was last modified: February 17th, 2011 by gregShare 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)last_img read more
