In an article on BBC NEWS titled Is Ex-warlord Charles Taylor pulling Liberia’s election strings from prison? Reporter Charlotte Attwood explores the unlikely coalition between former footballer George Weah, a candidate in Liberia’s presidential election, and former warlord Charles Taylor’s ex-wife Jewel Howard Taylor, who is running as the vice-presidential candidate.
Sources within the Trump administration stated, it’s troubling how quickly Liberians have forgotten their terrifying civil war including the rape of women and young girls along with the events that led to, at least, 250,000 Liberians dying in a senseless civil war – now, they are allowing convicted warlord Charles Taylor and his aides to influence the upcoming presidential elections. It appears history is about to repeat itself in Liberia with the name Taylor being the underlying manipulator.
