first_imgMr. Karnue accompanied by a crowd of well-wishers. First Liberian Baha’i promises to serve with humilityFor the first time in Liberia Sam Karnue, a Baha’i, has been inducted into office as Commissioner of Yarpea Mah Administrative District in Nimba County.Members of the Baha’i faith do not campaign for any position neither do they lobby or impress an appointment power, to allow them serve in government, but accept appointments void of political influence and class system.Commissioner Karnue receives the gable of authority from Inspector Reginald MehnMr. Karnue, whose appointment came as a surprise to many of his acquaintances, accepted President George Weah’s call to serve his people, who have longed over the years for a leadership that will unite them.In his acceptance remark on Saturday, June 9, in Duo Tiayee, where he was inducted, Karnue promised to serve his people with humility, passion, love and work, to unite not only the people of Yarpea Mah, but the entire county.“It is my prayer that unity abides with us as a people while we work together in the best interest of our district Nimba, which is a political subdivision of our country Liberia. It is even my best wish that what we do here to live in perfect peace and harmony impacts the lives of others in counties near and far,” he said, assuring the residents that his leadership will be a sound and harmonious one free from prejudice of all forms and sectionalism.“As I consider this a call for service, it is also of my numerous expectations that we consider respecting each other, regardless of origin or position, as a means of collectively achieving our developmental goals,” Karnue told the locals.He outlined truthfulness, humility, trustworthiness, patience and punctuality as pathways to success and improvement in one’s life.Quoting from the Baha’i text which says “the well-being of humanity, its peace and security are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established,” Karnue, a Baha’i by faith, called on his predecessor Fred N. Gaye to offer his expertise in helping the new leadership succeed.He said his appointment came not by means of lobby, neither any political engagement, “because I did not wish neither pray for this. I did not rob anybody of anything to get this appointment. In fact, I was in Sierra Leone on Baha’i duty when I received a call that I had been preferred to serve as district commissioner for Yarpea Mah,” Karnue said.Nimba County Inspector Reginald Mehn advised Mr. Karnue to be a leader with new eyes, ears and nose and whose job will always be above sentiments and personal feelings.Mehn, who performed the task on behalf of the county’s superintendent David Dorr Cooper, called on Mr. Karnue not to give credence to gossips, because doing so destroys any leadership.“You have come to serve people of diverse backgrounds. There are people here who still practice the Poro and the Sande societies, while others do not. Please respect the cultural practices of your people and be a leader for all, regardless of place of origin and class system,” Mehn said.Former Commissioner Fred N. Gaye considers Karnue as his friend and brother, whose developmental agenda he is set to assist in order for it to succeed. He referred to Yarpea Mah District as the only common denominator they all have to protect from acts of division.He expressed his gratitude to former President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf for allowing him to serve his people over the years.The induction ceremony was characterized by presentation of gifts giving and traditional dances.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img

first_img0Shares0000The fan zone is being built in the park below the main building of Moscow State University — one of the city’s seven Stalinist skyscrapers — which overlooks the Luzhniki stadium where the opening match will be played on June 14 © AFP / Andrei BORODULINMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Jun 8 – Construction of the World Cup fan zone outside Moscow’s top university is fuelling a rare protest in Russia as students worry thousands of partying football fans will destroy one of the capital’s few green spaces.The row pits students at Moscow State University against a recently re-elected President Vladimir Putin whose administration does not easily brook dissent and has gone all out to ensure the month-long football extravaganza goes off without a hitch. The area will have concerts and entertainment for up to 25,000 fans as well a giant interactive screen for those without tickets to watch matches.It is being built in the park below the main building of Moscow State University — one of the city’s seven Stalinist skyscrapers — which overlooks the Luzhniki stadium where the opening match will be played on June 14 as well as the final on July 15.Many of the university’s over 6,000 students and employees are not thrilled about their campus hosting the fan zone because of the disruption and damage it will cause.“We started the protest when they told us last year our semester would be cut short because of the fan zone,” said Maria Shekoshkhina, a 26 year-old PhD student.Security services, she said, maintain that the university labs have to close for the World Cup period because of their work with radioactive materials.“There was also a risk that students will be moved out of their dorms to make way for the National Guard, like in other World Cup cities,” she added.– Cleaning up dissent –The protesting students won what appeared to be a partial victory earlier this year when Moscow authorities assured them this will not happen and moved the fan zone 300 metres (1,000 feet) further from the university.But Shekoshkhina said the university and city authorities have not fulfilled their promises and gone to “absurd” lengths to stop the student protests.When over 200 students protested on May 22, the university “spontaneously deployed” dozens of cleaners to disrupt the event.“There were also lots of FSB (the successor agency of the KGB) there,” Shekoshkhina added. “We’ve started to recognise them,” she laughed.Two students were arrested that day, though they were released shortly afterwards.When a sign directing visitors was recently defaced with a graffiti tag reading “No Fan Zone”, the police opened a criminal investigation instead of a usual administrative case.They said the damage came to over 65,000 rubles ($1,050, 900 euros).Three students were arrested, with social media saying one was taken by officers during an exam, but they were subsequently released.The university has taken to social media urging students not to take part in protests.– A protected area –Students are also worried that the fan zone will damage the university’s protected historic park in an area known as Vorobyovy Gory, or Sparrow Hills.“We’re not saying all football fans are wild animals, we just think putting 25,000 people in an area with protected nature is not a good idea,” said Ekaterina Palmina, a 19 year-old student wearing a “Stop the Fan Zone” badge.She pointed to areas where trees have been cut down and historic granite-lined walkways destroyed.Local green activists and ordinary Muscovites have supported the protest, with a petition addressed to Putin requesting the fan zone be moved reaching 14,000 signatures.The university’s biology department has been organising walks for Muscovites to see the damage already inflicted on the park.“Vorobyovy Gory to Muscovites is like the Bois de Boulogne for Parisians,” said Moscow urban activist Pavel Gnilorybov.“The work on the fan zone was rushed, even though Moscow has several other places that are better suited for this,” he added.– ‘Illegal’ construction –A month ahead of the opening of the games, two of Moscow’s local municipal councils called for the urgent relocation of the fan zone.Yelena Rusakova, an opposition deputy, said the fan zone is “completely illegal” as it lies within two protected areas: the university park and a city forest.“Authorities are ignoring its protected status,” Rusakova said.“FIFA says the World Cup should not damage the nature of the country that is hosting it,” she said.“That is exactly what is happening here.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img
