Kwame Clement Envisages Defense for Press Freedom

first_imgKwame Clement, a onetime well-admired Liberian Journalist, has turned to Law and is promising to defend Journalists in the practice of his Law career.Making the promise in an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer following a brief program marking the opening of his Law Firm, Mr. Clement said the Libel Law in the country was bad that it needs improvement.He said unlike his days in Liberia as a Journalist working with ELBC/ELTV when there were a few media institutions including ELWA and the Daily Observer, more institutions have emerged today and the medial environment has become viable.Nevertheless, Mr. Clement stressed, there is a need for improvement in the reporting and Journalists have to do more analysis rather than just reporting directly what they hear from newsmakers.While concentrating on Law for now, Mr. Clement said he would be diving into Journalism by writing some analysis for television stations that would need his service.According to him, he earned his Law degree in the United States and practiced there over the past years, and his intent for studying Law is also to make a positive impact on his country, Liberia.The Judicial system in Liberia has a number of challenges ranging from bribery to delay in adjudicating cases.Mr. Clement in his comment on the issue said as he begins practice in Liberia he will respect the Supreme Court’s decision; he will also recommend some ideas to help change what needs to be changed.He also noted, “By my practice of law I can bring some transformation to the legal system to address some of the challenges facing the judicial system.”“My practice of law will be above-board.  I will make sure to have a clean record in practicing law and at the end of the day outcomes of cases will reflect my legal argument in court and not the depth of the pocket,” he added.The brief program that marked the opening of The Clement Law Firm was attended by scores of Cement’s school mates and political associates of the Alternative National Congress (ANC).In separate views, friends of Mr. Kwame Clement lauded him for the venture and his achievement in law.One of Liberia’s Economists, Sam Jackson told Mr. Clement, “We are in the struggle as the problem continues to intensify.  We look forward to seeing you using your legal profession to make an impact for the sake of the struggle.”Former Press Union of Liberia President Peter Quaqua in a short, concise statement said, “Thanks very much and we hope you defend Journalists.”Kwame Clement was a popular journalist in the 80s and was particularly focused on casting news on ELTV Action News.Besides the tone that attract people to listen to him, Mr. Cement’s straight posture without looking at news script while broadcasting on television, drew comments that he was one the most professional TV Journalists in those days.Law has become a lucrative business in Liberia nowadays.  Because of the quick earning Law brings to lawyers, many Liberian students upon receiving their first degree from a university go to the Louis Arthur Grimes School of Law, at the University of Liberia.Against this backdrop, Mr. Clement noted that besides the responsibility he has to serve his country as promised. he also intends to practice Law as a way of earning his living.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

President pushes for improved community health care services

first_img…as inaugural Health Expo opensPresident David Granger is calling for a healthcare system that seeks to provide improved services at not only the tertiary level but at the community level as well through the establishment of health centres in every community.The Head of State made this remark on Wednesday as he declared the inaugural Health Expo opened at the Sophia Exhibition Centre. The exhibition is being hosted by the Public Health Ministry under the theme: “Reaching for a better life with good health”, and runs until June 2.The President maintained that the Health Ministry’s mandate included ensuing citizens’ mental, physical and social health by promoting health services when and wherever they are accessible, acceptable ,and affordable. To this end, he charged that health centres be established in every community throughout the country so that Guyanese benefit optimally from this basic public service.“We must create a system of neighbourhood health centres, which are the main and primary providers of public health services within communities, and thesePresident David Granger; Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence; Minister of State, Joseph Harmon along with other Government Ministers and officials from the Public Health Ministry observe as a student cuts the ceremonial ribbon to declare the exhibition openedneighbourhoods and the neighbourhood health centres are to be accessible to all citizens everywhere in the Cooperative Republic of Guyana. They must guarantee citizens access to public health care, especially the provision of primary health care (services),” he stated.According to President Granger, Government operates at three strata – the national level, the regional or administration level and at the municipal or neighbourhood level – and the healthcare system should also be moulded in this model. He noted that the overall objective of his Administration was to provide healthcare services – at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels – which are accessible, reliable, affordable and inclusive to the Guyanese citizenry.On this note, President Granger posited that Government’s plans to have a capital town in each of the administrative regions would seek to build on and enhance core public services such as health care at the community level.“At the neighbourhood level, no citizens of Guyana, in the fullness of time, should have to travel more than five kilometres in any direction to receive primary health care.Every neighbourhood must have a neighbourhood health centre, so that even the poorest citizens should be able to access health care within his or her neighbourhood,” the Head of State asserted.While the President spoke of improved public services to foster health care, he noted that the first step to health care is prevention, which he said starts at home.“Preventative care is central to universal public health coverage, to primary health care and the delivery of public health services. No public health system and no national health strategy would be complete or successful without emphasising the importance of preventative care,” he opined.According to the President, prevention is central to Guyana’s national health strategy and among other things, one of the principal means of improving citizens’President Granger visiting one of the exhibits on display at the inaugural Health Expo 2018physical, mental and social wellbeing.The inaugural expo is an inter-ministerial and multi-sectoral event, and will also focus on developing synergies between the Ministry and healthcare providers as well as the public. It seeks to sensitise the public on health-conscious practices that will prevent Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), while enlightening the public on the plethora of services that are available within the public healthcare system.Addressing the gathering at the opening ceremony, Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence said that Guyanese often turned to the healthcare system as a last resort only after the “home remedies” and pharmacy recommendations do not work, and this, she posited, was often detrimental to the patients.“Guyana can ill-afford an unhealthy nation… We must change the way in which we embrace and manage our health… [and] through this expo, we wish to bring you and your health into sharp focus. We want to move from the almost laissez-faire attitude to the point where it becomes our priority,” she posited.According to the Public Health Minister, such renewed attitude will play a pivotal role in curbing the high rate of NCDs in the country, which in turn will put Guyana on track to achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number three, that is, “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.”On this note, Minister Lawrence proudly noted that President Granger was the only Head of State in the Caribbean heading a Presidential Commission on NDCs. She also announced that in recognition of its commitment against tobacco use, Guyana has been conferred with the ‘World No Tobacco Day Award’ by the World Health Organisation Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) for countries in the region of Americas.

Briton arrested in killings of wife, daughter in U.S.

first_img “Rachel and Lilly loved Neil very much. Neil was a trusted husband and father and it is incomprehensible how that love and trust was betrayed in the ultimate act of violence,” said the statement, read by a family spokesman. Police were first called to the Hopkinton home Jan. 21 but didn’t see anything wrong, authorities said. Coakley said that friends of the couple had showed up for a dinner party but no one answered the door, and that Rachel Entwistle’s mother called police when she couldn’t reach her daughter. After a missing-person report was filed, police visited the home again, and during the second search, discovered the bodies amid piles of bedding. Rachel Entwistle was been shot in the head, and the baby in the abdomen, Coakley said. It wasn’t clear whether they were awake or sleeping when they were shot, she said. Neil Entwistle didn’t return for his wife and daughter’s funeral Feb. 1. At the time of the killings, Neil Entwistle was nearing financial ruin, but he apparently hid the problems from his wife and family, Coakley said. A first-degree murder conviction in Massachusetts carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BOSTON – British authorities arrested a man Thursday in the shooting deaths of his wife and baby daughter, and prosecutors say he may have backed out of a plan to commit suicide after killing them in their Massachusetts home. Neil Entwistle, who returned to his native England a day after the killings, is charged with two counts of murder and weapons-related charges, Middlesex District Attorney Martha Coakley said. Investigators believe he used his father-in-law’s handgun to shoot his wife, Rachel, and their daughter on the morning of Jan. 20, Coakley said. She said he may have intended to kill himself as well, possibly because of financial difficulties as his Internet business ventures failed, but he didn’t follow through. The next morning, Entwistle bought a one-way ticket and got on a flight to London.

Haitian gunmen hijack school bus

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Doussous said he spoke with the kidnappers of Schneider by phone and that they are demanding $300,000 for his release. The kidnappers even put Schneider, who works for a group called Glow Ministry, on the phone with the police commander. “I just talked to him on the phone. A bullet fractured his arm but he says he is fine,” said Doussous, who heads Haiti’s anti-kidnapping unit. Doussous said police believe the kidnappers brought Schneider to the Port-au-Prince slum of Cite Soleil, a base for armed gangs blamed for much of the recent violence in the capital. Details on Schneider’s group were not immediately available. Police said they did not know his hometown. Haiti, the Western Hemisphere’s poorest nation, has a long history of instability. Elections are slated for Jan. 8, to elect a president and parliament. A rebellion ousted President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in February 2004. The former president lives in exile in South Africa. PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Gunmen hijacked a school bus carrying 14 children Thursday, and a U.S. missionary was kidnapped while driving outside Haiti’s capital, police said. The bus was taking the children to school when several armed men stopped it, boarded it and drove off down a main road going to the west of Port-au-Prince, the capital, Police Commissioner Francois Henry Doussous told The Associated Press. He said they’re working to secure the release of the children, but did not provide a motive or any other details. Also Thursday, gunmen shot and kidnapped 44-year-old U.S. missionary Philip Schneider as he was driving on a road north of the capital, Doussous said. “We do not consider these kidnaps to be politically motivated,” said Doussous. “This is purely criminal activity, the gangs need money.” Police and the U.N. peacekeeping force in Haiti suspect gangs allegedly close to Aristide of preparing violence to disrupt the national elections. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
