Considers staying and investing more

Tamba Boimah Hali, a Liberian-born professional athlete who has plied his trade in the National Football League (NFL) of the United States of America (USA),has returned home after over 25 years to help stimulate the economy of the country and create jobs.

Hali, 35, has been playing American football for the past 15 years. He played for Penn State where he earned all-American honors (2002 – 2005) and was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs as a linebacker in 2006 and was released in March 2018.

In an interview with journalists in Monrovia, on Saturday, November 24, Montserrado County District #1 Lawrence Morris who is also, a managing partner, formally announced Hali as a managing partner and the financier for the modern Automated Poultry farm.

Rep. Morris said Hali has already bought 72 acres for the erection of the poultry farm which is located in his district – on the outskirts of Montserrado and bordering Margibi County.

“On Saturday, Hali thanked the people for clearing the lands with a cow, though they did not do it free-of-charge, it was his means of saying thank you as the first step,” Rep. Morris said.

The Montserrado County lawmaker divulged that the Liberian millionaire has taken interest in the poultry farm when he realized the “hunger, bad economy and the issues of job creation in the country.”

“The poultry farm will be expected to produce eggs and meat and of course generate revenue from these products,” Rep. Morris said. “About 150 persons will be employed. In about six months, operations of the poultry are expected to start because the pre-fabricated structure will be imported and erected.”

The former American footballer said his return to his native land is in fulfillment of his dream of coming home to contribute his quota, including helping stimulate the economy.

“We want to stimulate our economy and provide some jobs for our people,” Hali said. “There are lots of ideas of stimulating the economy but l do not want to fabricate now. In my mind, l have retired but because of some business purpose, l have not formally retired.”

Meanwhile, Hali, who is also a pianist, songwriter, producer and a singer has sung over three songs in his album, Tamba Juice, which was produced by Masterkraft — a Nigerian record producer, disc jockey, band director, pianist, and songwriter.

Some of the songs included Samba, the One for Me and Oh my Gawd. Hali’s music videos were directed by Patrick Elis and Susan.

Hali further told journalists that he is doing music with different Liberian local artists to improve the Liberian music industry and to share Liberian culture.

    • There’s an African saying “your mother may be ugly but she is still your mother”. It is an irrefutable fact that there’s corruption in Liberia but we can not shy away from our duty as children of Liberia to fight the good fight. Corruption is not just a Liberian problem rather it is a world wide conundrum. What’s often missing from the table of discussion is post traumatic slave and colonialism syndromes which corruption rightfully falls under. What do you get when you involuntarily learn all of your ways from a corrupt people who believes in the exploitation and dehumanization of others? The offspring of such intercourse has produced the present condition you now see not just in Liberia but on the whole continent of Africa and wherever we’re present on the globe. But irrespective of the innumerable circumstances, we must continue the fight to bring stability to our home land. I am a product of Liberia and will always be. It hurts to see what’s happening in my country but it hurts even more if I abandon my own people and land. Haven’t you heard – “there’s no place like home”?

      I commend the brother for his effort and pray that it will not go in vein. If the good LORD will grant me the time and health, myself may be investment in Science Technology and mathematics in Liberia. I believe in my people even if all odds are against us. But as long there’s live, we’ll continue to work and speak into the minds of our leaders. And one fine day by the grace of God, we’ll find a leader who will listen and join in the good fight to bring stability to not only Liberia but to Africa. It may not happen in my life time but I’m grateful if I can help lay a foundation that others can build on.
