Pres. Sirleaf Emphasizes Reconciliation For Peace
By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, September 22 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says Liberians must see the need to reconcile to ensure peace and security in the country as a major condition for sustained development.

“While we have to and must do more for reconciliation by ensuring equity, equal opportunity and justice for all, reconciliation must go beyond this as well as the processes of contrition and forgiveness through the Palava Hut,” the Liberian leader emphasized.

President Sirleaf’s statement was contained in a “Comprehensive Progress Report on the Implementation of the Recommendations of the June 30, 2009 Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) she submitted to the National Legislature on September 15, 2015.

It was read in Session on Tuesday, September 22.

President Sirleaf also maintained that the Government is implementing a “Strategic Roadmap” for National Healing, Peace-building and Reconciliation, making reference to the commencement of the of the National Palava Hut Talks she launched in October 2014 in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County.

She, however, explained that the Palava Hut program was stalled as a result of the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak in the country.

The Liberian Chief Executive informed the Legislature that the Palava Hut program is rescheduled to continue in 2015 in four pilot areas, adding, “A detailed report will be submitted to you subsequently.”
