When people were talking about this from the beginning of the 2011 general and presidential elections,some people also who were sentimental about Robert Sirleaf said that, he brought his money from abroad.Now the economic situation in the country is increasing on a daily basis. If we all were singing this song from the beginning, things wouldn't have gone this far. But one thing i am very sure about is that, God has a special place for everyone.

If he has the 2.5 billion asset in position, why should he still occupying important position within the government. At least such person should be in jail til he proofs not guilty. But not hanging around.

Nepotism is favoritism shown to relatives or close friends by those with power or influence in the political or business world. This is dangerous than HIV/AIDS because there is no antivirus intervention to this epidemic. Liberia is going through this; the Liberians are in for another economic and social war. Fathers only get job when they take down their pants for Robert Sirleaf. Help is needed here than ever before. I am just as disappointed as you are.

Liberia shall rise again no matter what and who does what. The fact is that Liberia belongs to every Liberia and each has the right to all God's given resources. Whoever misuse the confidence imposed in you by the people and think they are stupid will be judge by God. Only time is the difference....

Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.

I am calling on world leaders to intervene into Liberia’s ongoing social and economic war. As a member of world citizenship and a peace loving nation, Liberians are in need of dignity and respect. Liberians have gone through terrible experience for the past two decades. Charles Taylor and his fighters misused Liberia with the support of others warlords including Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is engage in the same act as Charles Taylor in a different approach but with the same result. I am calling on world leaders not to wait until another civil war start before they can address this ongoing issue. The corruption is rampant, most especially among Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s family and associates. It is time for the United Nations and world leaders to intervene not until when the Liberian people cannot take it any longer. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is not building Liberian’s institutions but destroying what they had. In addition, aids and funds that were donated to Liberia through Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as the result of the civil war for reconstruction had become her family’s personal wealth. After fifteen years of civil unrest Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s family are taken advantage of the Liberian people and their wealth; we are talking about $8.5 billion plus us dollars. Don’t you have value for funds and aids that were donated to Liberia for development and reconstruction? Why are you not addressing these issues at this moment? Are you waiting for another civil war or are you not embarrass enough considering the profile of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf? As for me, I never want to hear nor see another Liberian civil war. Liberians are peace loving people and they deserve better. Liberia needs your support to avoid another civil unrest as a result of Ellen Johnson Selief’s nepotism and corruption. I thank you for your time and import on these issues because a Liberian problem share is a Liberian problem resolve.

where did Robert Sirleaf got that money(2.5 bln us) from?
I think he should be in jail while investigation is going on,because even the country does not have that amount of money.
The Sirleaf family is a shame and disgrace to this county.
