Political Interest Stalls Support to Writers

first_imgLiberian Historian and Political Science instructor, Dr. Joseph Saye Guannu says the lack of support to Liberian writers is attributed to the narrow interests of the nation’s   political leaders.In a recent interview with the Daily Observer, Dr. Guannu,  whose History texts are widely used in Liberian schools across the country, said leaders of different regimes in the country had always wanted writers, especially those writing history, to “Dance to the tune of their music.”According to him, as writers  seek support, the powers that be would be interested only in writers’ outlining the  achievements the leaders.  These leaders are not interested in objective and unbiased writings, but only in  those that sing the leaders’ praises.   The result is that writers get little or no support from the national government.He said this is evidenced by writings some do whereby they give false information about people who did nothing good in the interest of the state but are nonetheless made to look good in the public eye.“We writers are not supported because government wants us to praise them for what they do not do,” Dr. Guannu stressed.“These politicians want us to join their political parties before they can support writers, and we who want to be objective cannot have the support since we refuse to go by what they say,” he continued.He said he had been able to publish his books through assistance from friends and because of his own passion to write.Dr. Joseph Saye Guannu has published History books including A Short History of the Liberian Republic, Liberian History Up To 1847, Liberian Civics and Liberian History Since 1980.Other supplementary papers include Perilous Problems of Liberian History, Inaugural Speeches of Liberian Presidents and Liberia & U.S.:  A special Relation.Dr. Joseph Say Guannu was born in Sanniquellie, Nimba County.  He began his education in St. Mary’s Catholic School along with late personalities including Edward Beyan Kesselley and Emmanuel Gbalazeh.When he entered 7th grade, Dr. Guannu left for Monrovia and he enrolled at St. Patrick High School where he graduated and later entered the University of Liberia.He won a scholarship and travelled to the United States where he attended the College of Great Falls in the state of Montana.  There he completed his Bachelor’s studies and later enrolled at the Fordham University in New York, where he earned his Master’s then Doctorate degrees.Upon earning his PhD, Dr. Joseph Saye Guannu chose to teach in Glassborough University in New Jersey.In Liberia, Dr. Guannu has  worked at the Foreign Service Institute, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador to the United States, and Minister of State for Presidential Affairs.He currently teaches at the Cuttington University in Suakoko, Bong County and the University of Liberia Graduate School.  He is the director of Conflict Resolution & Peace at Cuttington.He has won awards including Who’s Who Award in the Education in America and Who’s Who Award in the World.Dr. Guannu’s success in his academic and professional sojourns has been driven by three factors including discipline, determination and sacrifice.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_img0Shares0000Dennis Gicheru leads celebrations afte scoring for KCB in their National Super League match against Talanta as they earned a return to the KPL on October 7, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobluNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 7 – Dennis Gicheru and Simon Abuko scored in the final 10 minutes as KCB FC beat a stubborn FC Talanta 2-0 at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on Sunday to earn promotion back to the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) after three years.Gicheru poked home at the back post from a Dennis Ng’ang’a freekick with nine minutes left before Simon Abuko slotted home from the penalty spot in added time to finally break a stubborn FC Talanta as they earned an unassailable lead in second position. The three points will ensure KCB’s final match against Nairobi Stima next weekend will be a mere formality.The bankers moved to 75 points in the National Super League (NSL) standings, eight ahead of third placed Nairobi Stima who will be playing Kenya Police in the other NSL match later Sunday.“I am really pleased to have scored today in such an important match to help the team get back to the league. It was a tough match but we knew when we get one goal, things will be easy. I can’t really explain how it feels because we have fought for this so much,” goal scorer Gicheru said.KCB FC defender Dennis Gicheru celebrates after scoring for KCB during their National Super League tie against FC Talanta at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on October 7, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluAmazingly, Gicheru scored one of the four goals for Wazito FC last year when they beat Kenya Police 4-1 in Narok to earn promotion to the KPL which now means he has scored in both crucial matches and earned promotion with two different teams in consecutive years.Head coach Elvis Ayany, a former player of the bankers was in cloud nine after sealing the slot.“It has been a tough season and every game has been like a final. Over the last three years we have come very close but lost it in the final four games. This time round, we were very serious in every game and we did not underrate anyone,” Ayany pointed out.After being frustrated by a high defending Talanta, coached by former KCB boss Abdallah Juma, the bankers upped the tempo in the second half.On the hour mark, they came inches close when Samuel Mwangi’s venomous strike from distance was finger tipped over the bar by Talanta keeper Joel Bataro.KCB FC midfielder Samuel Mwangi strides forward during his side’s National Super League tie against FC Talanta at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on October 7, 2018.
