The Executive Director of Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE), Quiwu Pepci Yekeh, has disclosed that the government is poised to build 1,500 Pro-Poor Housing Units in the 15 counties to help underprivileged citizens.

According to Yekeh, said the government has completed a total of 500 Pro-Poor housing units including in Sasstown in Grand Kru, Popo Beach in Montserrado, and Kpelleh Village in Grand Gedeh counties and other places, and it’s expected to build a total of 1,500 across the country.

He added about 240 housing units have been completed in Grand Kru County including Grandcess, Sasstown, Barclayville, and neighboring villages and towns.

“The structure you saw in Grand Gedeh is just the first phase, so Grand Gedeh has completed the first phase. We have about 50 housing units now. We have to go back to Grand Gedeh County to do the second phase,” Mr. Yekeh said.

Mr. Yekeh said “If you have come to Sasstown and see the living poor condition of our people, it was very sad for you. Like before, there were lots of deplorable kind of structures and today, the beneficiaries are excited that they can no longer go in the bush to defecate.”

“We started the Pro Poor housing unit construction here in Sasstown, and we moved to Popo Beach in Monrovia. We were able to construct housing units in Grand Gedeh County and then in Bong and to Nimba Counties,” Mr. Yekeh said.

He said while the President has promised to build 200 housing Units in Kanweaken, River Gee County, additional housing units are expected to be built Gbi and Dorus which is located in Nimba County.

Mr. Yekeh said there are plans to continue building of housing units in Bomi and Grand Cape Mount counties.

Beneficiaries in Grand Kru are delighted over the President’s decision to build modern houses for them.


  1. What is the philosophical orientation of the CDC Party of Liberia? Is it a socialist or communist or capitalist or social democratic party?

    Let me give some elementary definition of the different political and economic systems in the world:
    – SOCIALISM: You have two (2) cows, and you give one (1) to your neighbor;

    – COMMUNISM: You have two cows, the government takes the 2 and give you milk in return;

    – FASCISM: You have two cows, the government takes the two and sell you milk;

    – NAZISM: You have two cows, the governments takes the two and kill you;

    – TRADITIONAL OR ANCIENT CAPITALISM: You have two cows, you sell one and you buy a male. You multiply your cows and there is economic growth. You sell them, you retire, and you live on the profits;

    – MODERN CAPITALISM: You have two cows, you sell one and buy a male. You multiply your cows and buy those of your neighbors. The latter (neighbors) become your shepherds, you pay them in monkey coins and they die poor;

    – AMERICAN SOCIETY: You have two cows, you sell one and you force the other to produce milk like 4 cows. By dint of producing beyond her capacity, she dies. You take a consultant to do an autopsy to better understand the reasons for this death;

    – FRENCH SOCIETY: You have two cows, you go on strike because you want a third;

    – GERMAN SOCIETY: You have two cows, you modify them so that they live 100 years, eat once a month and milk themselves;

    – CHINESE SOCIETY: You have two cows, you sell the milk to your compatriots and you produce plastic milk to export to the rest of the world;

    – BLACK SOCIETY: You have two cows, you slaughter them on the same day and you dream that donors or the international community will give you others. You go to a church or a mosque to pray to Jesus or Allah for HIM to give you more. You go 40 days and 40 nights without eating or drinking so that the cows can fall from Heaven. You recite the “Hail Mary” a million times without success. You look for passages that speak of cows in the Bible or the Koran and you read for long nights with a pastor or an Iman hoping to see the cows appear. At the end and by dint of reading the Bible or the Koran, you become a prophet of the good news of the cows that will come soon. You die poor in extreme misery;

    – HAITIAN SOCIETY: You have two cows, your neighbor poisons them so that you have the same level of despair. He will go and drink his clairin and rejoice at your loss. Both of you languish in misery and each day you play lottery in the hope of getting out of this misery.

    What system do we have in Liberia, my people?
    – LIBERIANISM: You have two cows, you sell one to buy a male. You multiply your cows and sell them and move to the USA with the profits. You live flashy life, the money gets finished and retire on welfare and become ashamed to come back to Liberia. Your children learn in poorly run public schools, come back to Liberia with no professionalism to create problems for the country;

    – CDCIANISM: You inherited two cows, you kill the two and feast on them for one year. You look around and see the neighbor’s male cow, you seize it, knowing you have no cows to mate with. Arbiters tried to talk you out of your mischief, you grab them and kill them.

    May God watch over the poor children of Liberia and redeem them from evil women and men!
