‘Liberia Won’t Be Used for Illegal Trafficking of Small Arms’

first_imgLINCSA chairman, Marvin Momboe Sarkor-Says National Commission on Small Arms ChairmanBy Charlotte Kruah, Student, UL Mass Communication Department The chairman of the Liberia National Commission on Small Arms (LINCSA), Marvin Momboe Sarkor, has assured Liberians that the country’s borders will not be used for illegal trafficking of illicit arms and light weapons.According to him, Liberians have no reason to fear as the Commission is working with international partners, including Great Britain, USA, ECOWAS and many others to ensure that they help formulate policies and appropriate programs aimed at combating the proliferation of small arms and light weapons across the country.Chairman Sarkor explained that the Commission has set up a national control system which is intended to ensure that weapons brought in Liberia are not diverted to other countries for the use of arms conflict.He said LiNCSA and partners are working to help make their respective countries and people live peacefully, void of armed conflict.Sarkor said small arms and light weapons have a negative impact on society, especially reflecting on Liberia’s dark past and, as such, he called on civilians who are in possession of illegal weapons to peacefully turn it over to the Liberia National Police.He said the constant wave of illegal small arms by unauthorized persons is embarrassing for the security of the state because they are putting in place practical measures to help combat the flow of illicit small arms and light weapons in Liberia.Under the laws of Liberia only security institutions and personnel to include the Liberia National Police (LNP) the Liberia Immigration Service (LIS), the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency (LDEA), the Executive Protective Service (EPS) and other personnel assigned with the President of Liberia, among others, are allowed to carry arms.However, civilians are to use single barrel guns and for exclusively hunting purposes, he indicated.Sarkor said Liberia is a signatory to the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), an international governing body charged with the responsibility of controlling arms, especially conventional arms.Sarkor represented Liberia a week ago in Equatorial Guinea on the ban of fossil materials to produce nuclear weapons and explosives, though Liberia does not have uranium.This article is published as an assignment from the UL Mass Communication Department.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

(FUFA Photos)Tokyo 2020 CAF Women’s Olympics qualifiers-Preliminary Round 2nd LegCrested Cranes 0-1 Ethiopia (2-4Agg)StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo Saturday, 06-06-2019LUGOGO – The first time is always not easy. The statement proved 100% true on Saturday as the Crested Cranes were dumped out of the 2020 CAF Women’s Olympics qualifiers.In their maiden appearance in the qualifiers, Faridah Bulega’s side went into the second leg trailing 3-2 but could not live up to the billing as they lost 1-0 to their Ethiopian counterparts at Lugogo.Loza Abera scored the all important goal on a hot afternoon at Lugogo, to see Ethiopia march onto the next round where they will face Cameroon, 4-2 on aggregate.The Crested Cranes had a promising start which saw Fazila Ikwaput and Hassifa Nasuna trouble the visitors.The early pressure also saw Bulega’s side hit the cross bar through Ikwaput after a mistake by the Ethiopia goalkeeper.Despite the home side asking most of the questions in the first half, they just couldn’t break down a resolute Ethiopian back-line hence going into the break locked at 0-0.Bulega who made four changes to the side that started in Ethiopia by starting with Hasifa Nasuna, Resty Nanziri, Fausiah Najjemba and Captain Tracy Jones Akiror, called for the first substitution with Lillian Mutuuzo coming on in place of Nanziri.Tracy Jones was handed a start on Saturday despite not starting in the first leg.Riticia Nabbosa and Sandra Nabweteme were also later brought on for Yudaya Nakayenze and Fauzia Najjemba respectively.Despite the subs and more relentless pressure, it was Ethiopia who scored on 68 minutes through Lazo Abera to leave the Crested Cranes with a mountain to climb.The mountain proved so high to overcome as the match ended 1-0 in Ethiopia’s favour, meaning that they had qualified for the next round of the qualifiers.Crested Cranes starting XI vs Ethiopia:Ruth Aturo (G.K), Viola Namuddu, Grace Aluka, Aisha Namukisa, Shadia Nankya, Yudaya Nakayenze (65’ Riticia Nabbosa), Resty Nanziri (46’ Lillian Mutuuzo), Tracy Jones Akiror, Fazila Ikwaput, Hassifah Nassuna, Fauzia Najjemba (70’ Sandra Nabweteme).The Crested Cranes XI that started in the 1-0 loss to Ethiopia on Saturday.Un used Subs:Daisy Nakaziro (G.K), Juliet Nalukenge, Phiona Nabbumba, Shamirah Nalugya, Marion Amangat.Comments Tags: crested cranesfaridah bulegaTokyo 2020 CAF Women’s Olympics qualifiertoplast_img read more
