Why Robert Sirleaf will lose senatorial election

Yes, it is a much ballyhooed election, especially since the emergence of Robert Sirleaf. Cherished by his mother, the president of Liberia, Robert Sirleaf remains among ordinary people in Liberia as a product of the nepotism and patronage system in Liberia and nothing more. One of Madam Sirleaf bigger problems with her people is over her son who spent most of his life outside Liberia. The President's decision at the time, to appoint him as official senior adviser and chairman of the board of the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL) which gave him responsibility for major projects, gave rise to suspicion that she plans to create a monarchy. His novelty has long died down and a new harsh and dismal political reality now confronts him, especially since one of his opponents is a former international football legend turned politician, who is leading a youth dominant opposition party, Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) and arguably the leading opposition leader in Liberia, today, George Manneh Weah.
...
Like Former Senegal President Abdoulaye Wade's Son, Karim Wade, who stood in the Dakar mayoral elections of 2009, hoping that a high-profile role in local government would be a springboard to higher office, Robert Sirleaf sees himself in that fashion.
...
A widely despised figure during his father's presidency (like Robert Sirleaf), Wade held powerful ministerial positions including being in charge of major infrastructure and energy projects.
...
According to the Liberia Institute for Public Integrity (LIPI), "records show that the only two infamous accomplishments of Robert Sirleaf, were his sole outsourcing of the most lucrative blocks 13 and 14 through controversial concession arrangements which the General Auditing Commission indicated were marred by irregularities and confirmed in the Moore Stephens draft audit report. The concessions for Block 13 and 14 were handled and concluded by President Sirleaf and her son, Mr. Robert Sirleaf. Robert Sirleaf is also accused of not giving a full accounting of the $10.5 million social contribution from Chevron for the people of Liberia.
...
In short, the ruling Unity Party official statement declared the "beloved son" of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Robert, as a character with moral deficiencies too "appalling" to contest the ensuing senatorial election as a candidate after UP senatorial candidate and little known Ali Sylla quiet Montserrado county senatorial race citing medical reasons for the pullout.
...
For these and other reasons, the 2014 senatorial election in Montserrado will be a difficult one for Robert Sirleaf.
...
It is unclear if Madam's Sirleaf administration is the most corrupt in Liberia's history, but never has corruption been this romanticized and institutionalized as evident in her administration.


Record shows that Robert ...

Record shows that Robert Sirleaf and his mother (the President of Liberia) are both inseparable and in the economic plunder and wanton looting of state resources in the last nine years. Mr. Sirleaf served in multiple lucrative positions including Senior Advisor to his Mother, and Chairman of the National Oil Company, the lucrative state owned enterprise that has become the center of corruption and financial mismanagement allegations. Recently, Mr. Sirleaf was appointed as Special Envoy to Qatar on Oil, and as Special Envoy to fundraise for Ebola.

Mr. Sirleaf is the most influential member of the President's administration, akin to the sons of infamous and dictatorial corrupt regimes: Sadam Hussein, Abdoulaye Wade, Mohamad Gadhafi and Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, etc. Liberians should take note that Mr. Sirleaf is a close friend and buddy of disgraced first son, Teodoro Obiang Nugema Mbasogo of Equator Guinea additionally.

Like the Liberian President's son (Mr. Robert Sirleaf), the sons of these infamous and corrupt presidents have used a variety of means to acquire and accumulate wealth overnight. These schemes include forming and financing football clubs, created multiplicity of not-for-profit foundations, taking ownership positions in lucrative concessions agreements, using influence peddling to acquire ownerships in major institutions in the state such as banking, oil & gas importation and telecommunication businesses.
In a February 2012 FrontpageAfrica interview, President Sirleaf argued that Mr. Sirleaf places projects in front of business people and these people have helped to finance his many projects in and around Monrovia. The President did not disclose the companies donating to Mr. Sirleaf's Football club (Barrack Youth Club), his Robert A. Sirleaf Foundation, the Liberian Education Trust of which he play the key role and the many projects including mini football stadiums he has constructed around Monrovia. Mr. Sirleaf did do anything of these things before his mother became President of Liberia. This fact is undisputed by even his diehard supporters.
In spite of the public outcry for full and transparent accounting of the social development fund from Chevron and the accusation that the money in the tune of $10 million went to Mr. Sirleaf's foundation, a full accounting has not been made by his mother, the President. A U.S. leaked cable showed that President Sirleaf told Chevron not to give a dime of that $10 million to the Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Finance she claimed she cannot trust the Ministry of Finance to manage those funds. Instead she instructed that the money is given to a foundation. Even Global Witness made all efforts to ascertain the whereabouts of the $10 million to no avail. The Legislature initiated an investigation into the same Chevron social contribution but it has been a year now and no publication of legislative founding.
The ruling Unity Party Secretary General, Wilmot Paye cautions citizens: "Make no mistake about this: the National Executive Committee of the Unity Party has taken (and will take) no decision to support Robert Sirleaf. We are convinced that while this Sirleaf may have become rich overnight, he lacks the moral credentials and credibility to earn our party's trust. This is a profound statement from the ruling party, of which the President is the standard bearer. The UP statement validates the growing anger and resentment in Liberia that the Sirleafs have used the state resources to amass ill-gotten wealth at the detriment of the poor and impoverished Liberians.
The Liberian Institute for Public Integrity (LIPI) is aware that the root of persistence crisis, poverty and underdevelopment can be attributed to the blatant disregards for integrity in public administration. Without remorse of the Country's recent past, this menace continues to be exacerbated by President Sirleaf, her family and cronies through organized corruption, a cabal, gross disrespect for public opinion and entrenched acts of economic crimes within family circles - leading to the acquisition of ill-gotten wealth and power.
Further, Mr. Robert Sirleaf and his mother have undermined the INTEGRITY of the Government of Liberia, making Liberia to make another sad history of being ranked by Transparency International's Corruption Barometer as the "MOST CORRUPT" in the world, a sordid distinction that no other Liberian President brought to Liberia.
...
LIPI wants each and every Liberian to stand for something in these elections and VOTE NO to corruption, impunity and nepotism by saying NO to Mr. Robert Sirleaf.
The rejection of corruption, nepotism and impunity MUST begin with sending a clear message to the President and her family that enough is enough and through a NO VOTE for Mr. Sirleaf. Through, with and the advice to his mother the President, the President, her son and her family have mortgaged the resources of Liberia in a manner that provides a near zero future benefit to the people of Liberia; asset stripped and sold the country on the cheap in questionable concession deals.
