Rebuttal to LIMAP Board's impeachment claim
By: Farok A.Konneh
15 February, 2012
Wow! What a laughable Resolution. Abu Sillah is completely unfamiliar with type of board Limap has. Is he thinking that this is a board that chooses its CEO or the president? He is dead wrong and out of touch with the reality in the state of Pennsylvania. The president of Limap is not chosen by the board of directors, but elected by the people of Pennsylvania. Your unconstitutional resolutions or self-entertained resolution is nothing but charade and is not welcome by the people of Pennsylvania who massively voted Mr. Lamine Kromah into Office. Read detail

By: PHAMOLIE MORRIS KROMAH
04 February, 2012
Revolution of any kind does not occur in a vacuum. There has to be a cause or multiple causes to start one. And once it begun, it becomes difficult to contain it without a robust and/or adequate redress. French and the Russians revolutions and most recently the so called “Arab Spring” are all categorized as instruments for change. When brutality and vandalism became the order of the day, it took certain brave men and women to defend the cause of freedom thereby emancipating themselves from the bondage of brutal rule and deprivation to that of self esteem.
