Bong County, Liberia, April 3, 2024 –The general overseer of the New Water in the Desert Apostolic Pentecostal Church here, Bishop Dr. Kortu Brown, says if Liberia is to move forward, reconciliation and the rule of law must prevail.

He said without application of rule by law that will require those who committed atrocities against Liberians during the country’s fourteen years bloody civil crisis to apologize to their victims, there will never be reconciliation.

He noted there is too much cry amongst the citizenry due to lack of application of the rule of law.

Speaking with reporters over the weekend in Gbatala, Bong County,

Bishop Brown said that applying the rule of law should not be selective if total political reconciliation is to be returned to the country. 

He appealed to the country’s Unity Party-led government and politicians to improve on gains made by previous governments to move Liberia forward.

According to him, every government, in one way or another, made some gains in the country despite the challenges confronting citizens, so they deserve commendation from the citizenry.

At the same time, he criticized politicians who served their respective constituents and counties for twelve to eighteen years and above without any impact on the people they served, something he described as shameful and embarrassing. 

Bishop Kortu Brown challenged every Liberian, including politicians to focus on initiative that will help move the country forward, instead of engaging projects only during the electioneering period. 

He stressed that projects should not be politically driven but bent on helping ordinary citizens.

He noted that citizens are confronted with numerous challenges across the country, so national leaders should double their efforts to address some of those challenges to ease the people’s suffering.

Meanwhile, the New Water in the Desert Apostolic Pentecostal Church has intensified its Hearing Healthcare campaign in Gbatala, Bong County, ahead of the church’s annual conference next month in Monrovia.

The initiative, implemented by its relief arm, Church Aid Incorporated, screened and tested several people in Gbatala who have suffered from hearing impairments over the years. About twenty people were screened and treated during the exercise. Ten needed to obtain Hearing aids to restore normal hearing once again, while one was restored immediately.

Bishop Brown revealed that his team will go to Bomi County this week to screen and test people with hearing problems.

Meanwhile, Miss Zouwroh Partuah, a beneficiary whose hearing was restored, lauded the church for the exercise.

She narrated that since she became aware of herself, she had never used her left ear to hear, but the Church restored her hearing through the help of God.

Miss Partuah, a Plebe, Bong County resident, extended thanks and appreciation to Bishop Dr. Kortu Brown for thinking of people who have suffered from hearing impairment across the country. Editing by Jonathan Browne
