The Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Julia Duncan Cassell, has observed that the issue of rape remains a major challenge to the government as children are being the direct victims on a daily bases.Minister Cassell made the observation at the official launch of ActionAid’s Safe Cities for women and girls campaign held in Paynesville Town Hall recently. She disclosed that the ages of rape victims show that over 90 percent of rape cases are children. She urged Liberian women to stand firm to win the fight against rape and all forms of crimes against children and women.The government, she said, is working to ensure that Sexual Gender Base Violence (SGBV) against women and girls comes to an end.She added that despite all efforts exerted by government, children are still victims of rape and women also continue suffering from SGBV.“With all the efforts, SGBV is still on the increase in the country at an unacceptable rate where 1,175 cases were recorded in 2013 and more than 1,500 cases in 2014 with a total of 14 deaths that resulted from rape in the last two years, Minister Cassell indicated.She called on all Liberians to work together to ensure that women and girls are free from being attacked and that sexual harassments against them are stopped.She mentioned that many women and girls who are victims of rape and harassments do not have the means to take perpetrators to justice so they are left with no alternative but to live with pain in their hearts.“Enough is enough, and therefore we will stand up to defend our children and women so that they can live a better life by ensuring that we have safe cities for them,” she declared.At the same time, ActionAid Country Director, Korto Williams, said the issue of violence against women and girls is critical to the extent that women around the world have organized themselves to track violence in urban and public spaces.Madam Korto pledged her organization’s support to ensure that massive awareness is taken to the campuses of universities, urban areas and public spaces to create safe cities for women.“Women around the world have recognized that people’s rights are violated everyday either based on the lack of social services, the lack of gender social services or the culture of abuse where people believe that women are objects that can be raped, beaten upon or sexually harassed,” she said.For this too, she said ActionAid has taken up the challenge to stop the issue of “sex for grades at various campuses, mainly on the campuses of the universities where the girls on the other hand want to obtain a degree.” She said ActionAid-Liberia about two years ago did a research which revealed that transactional sex was a serious problem at various university campuses around the country.Madam Williams noted that ActionAid and women around the world set May 20 as International Safe Cities Day to highlight issues based on the context of each country.For Liberia, she said the Safe Cities program is highlighting the areas of the lack of gender responsive social services, public services as well as how do these services interrupt them in exercising their rights as women.According to her, she and her team have been working on the program for the last seven years leading up to May 20 which starts the real implementation of a three-year campaign.“This is very historic when it comes to working in the interest of women and girls.”The three year project seeks to work with women and adolescents from the universities and community dwellers that know the realities of what was happening at the schools and in the communities.“It is very important to have Safe Cities because if the cities are dark, it becomes insecure for the women and girls as well as the men and boys.”She said if safe cities are not created, people cannot live comfortably therefore Madam Korto has stressed the need for every human to live in safe cities with electricity to enable them to go about their regular activities.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
President George M. WeahIn his inaugural speech yesterday, President George Manneh Weah assured Liberians that the mandate given him is to end corruption in public service.President Weah, whose Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) obtained 61.5 percent of votes during the December 26 runoff election, said his overwhelming mandate received from the Liberian people clearly demonstrates that they want his government to end corruption in public service.“I promise to deliver on this mandate,” Weah emphasized to rapturous applause.Weah admonished those who will be appointed public officials to put the interest of the people above their personal interests.“As official of government, it is time to put the interest of our people above our own selfish interests. It is time to be honest with our people,” President Weah noted.Admittedly, Weah said though corruption is a habit among the people, “We must end it. We must pay civil servants a living wage so that corruption is not an excuse for taking what is not theirs.”He added: “Those who do not refrain from enriching themselves at the expense of the people, the law will take its course. I say today that you will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”President Weah maintained he believes that the most effective way to directly impact the poor and to narrow the gap between rich and poor is to ensure that public resources do not end up in the pockets of government officials.Reacting to President Weah’s remarks, a Liberian legal practitioner, Cllr. Jonathan Massaquoi, maintained that for the people to take Weah serious, stolen money must be recovered and the public official(s) investigated and prosecuted.To also achieve that, Massaquoi suggested that the Solicitor General’s (S/G) office should be made independent from that of the Ministry of Justice (MOJ).“The S/G office should be independent so that there will be no interference with his/her prosecutorial power; then, I believe his government will succeed in its fight against corruption,” Massaquoi noted.Another important issue, the Supreme Court lawyer said, is to ensure the establishment of a Corruption Court that would speedily hear and adjudicate cases of corruption.“This will make Liberians believe that President Weah is serious about fighting corruption,” Massaquoi emphasized.“Weah’s government also needs to ensure that integrity institutions are well funded and free from interference in their operation.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

ANAHEIM – Campbell Hall of North Hollywood’s Jrue Holiday took his time walking off the court at halftime of Saturday’s Southern Section boys’ basketball championship game and peered up at the scoreboard, seemingly in disbelief after realizing his team was trailing LaCanada by five points. There was no hiding the look of disappointment on his face. He joined his teammates in the locker room minutes later, but not before passing by Vikings coach Terry Kelly and the rest of his staff, who were standing in the corridor of the Honda Center attempting to figure out how nationally ranked Campbell Hall of North Hollywood was losing. “Coach, I’m not going to let us lose,” Holiday said before the second half started. The 6-foot-4 junior made good on his word, scoring eight of his 38points in a four-minute overtime to guide the Vikings to a 61-57 victory in the Div. III-AA title game over the Spartans, who nearly pulled off an improbable victory against a team ranked No.2 in the state by Cal-Hi Sports and No. 19 in the country by USA Today. “I’m not certain if Jrue knows how to lose, whether it be checkers or basketball, the kid just battles,” Kelly said. Adam Malik did his best to upstage top-seeded Campbell Hall (28-1) and Holiday, scoring 20 of his 31 points in the first half. The 6-7 senior missed an 8-foot jumper with four seconds remaining in the fourth quarter for the fourth-seeded Spartans (27-3), and the game went into overtime tied at 51-51 after the Vikings’ Dallas Rutherford missed a pair of freethrows with two seconds left. “Adam turned in one of the greatest performances in school history,” La Canada coach Tom Hofman said. It was good, but not good enough, particularly when Holiday, who also had nine rebounds and seven steals, is at his best. Rutherford opened up overtime with a layup, and Holiday followed with a steal and two-handed dunk to give Campbell Hall a 55-51 lead with 2:53 left. Seconds later, Holiday stepped in the passing lane and went the length of the court for a left-handed dunk. He added a short jumper to give the Vikings a 59-57 lead with 55 seconds left and sealed the victory with a pair of free throws with 3.3 seconds remaining. “This is the finals, we knew this game wasn’t going to be easy,” Holiday said. La Canada maintained the lead for a majority of the third quarter behind timely baskets from Malik, Tucker Heaton and William Baldwin. And surprisingly enough, it had a two-point advantage heading into the fourth quarter. “We were hyped for this game,” La Canada senior Darren Ho said. “We gave 110 percent. He went all out.” Holiday’s steal and layup at the 7:26 mark of the fourth quarter gave Campbell Hall a 45-43 lead, its first since there was 2:12 left in the first quarter. Holiday’s brother, Justin Holiday, added a basket to extend the lead to four points with 5:01 left in the final quarter. La Canada, however, was resilient. Malik kept the Spartans scoring six points over a two-minute stretch, and a pair of Ross Grandolph free throws tied the score at 51-51 with 22 seconds left. “We knew Malik was talented, but his inside and outside game is great,” Kelly said. “He carried them.” Justin Holiday finished with 10points. Keegan Hornbuckle added seven points and six rebounds for the Vikings. For the Spartans, Baldwin finished with eight points, Ho had seven and Christian Nitu had five. “I don’t know what the betting line for this game was, but I’m sure no one thought we would be going into overtime with them,” Hofman said. “I’ve never been more proud of a team than I am with this group.” firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3607

Leading Lady tells of a teacher and struggling actress who enlists the help of a South African sheep farmer to help her in preparing for the film role of a lifetime.

SIFF opened on 15 May, and runs until 8 June. Leading Lady will be screened on 7 June at 7pm, and again at 1.30pm the next day at the Harvard Exit.The film, by director Henk Pretorius, stars some of South Africa’s finest actors, including the singer Bok van Blerk, whose latest album, Steek die Vure Aan, has outperformed all expectations, and Brümilda van Rensburg, who has returned to South African TV screens in Binnelanders as Jana du Preez. Other cast members are Canadian Gil Bellows (Ally McBeal, Shawshank Redemption), who has added to his 80-plus television and film credits by sharing the silver screen with Susan Sarandon and Donald Sutherland; and Irish actress Katie McGrath, who has recently been cast in Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic World. Katie McGrath, best known for her lead role in the BBC’s global hit show Merlin – Official and recently included in the cast for Steven Spielberg’s feature Jurassic World, seen here with award-winning SA actress and well-known TV personality Brumilda van Rensburg. Pretorius’s previous film, Fanie Fourie’s Lobola, won the SIFF 2013 Golden Space Needle Award for Best Film. He returns this year with an inspiring tale of an aspiring English actress, Jodi Rutherford, played by McGrath (Dracula, Merlin), who persuades a South African farmer from Brandfort, Kobus Willemse, played by Van Blerk, to prepare her for a role in a major Hollywood film as an Afrikaner war heroine. The legendary Van Rensburg also gives a quirky performance as Magdaleen Willemse.A self-proclaimed “passionate observer of humanity”, Pretorius made Bakgat in 2006, which went on to become South Africa’s first film trilogy and one of the most popular Afrikaans films ever made. Mole is a South African multi-instrumentalist who blends Mumford-style folk with electronic layered tones. He has gone from winning songwriting contests to making chart history.Listen to Matthew Mole hereThe storyLeading Lady tells of a teacher and struggling actress who enlists the help of a South African sheep farmer to help her in preparing for the film role of a lifetime.The SIFF programme explains: “Famous film director Daniel Taylor (Bellows) is planning a film about a historical Boer woman. His British actress girlfriend, Jodie, covets the role but realises she must travel to South Africa to fully embrace the character. On arrival she meets ruggedly handsome Kobus, a young farmer who shares the same last name as the historical character, and eventually convinces him to let her stay at the farm. In payment, Jodie will act and direct the annual summer play with a ragtag group of misfits, including a scene-stealing supporting role Eduan van Jaarsveldt, who played Fanie in last year’s award winner, as Kobus’s much-looser brother.”As is to be expected, it says, the blossoming relationship between Jodie and Kobus becomes much more complicated when Daniel arrives for location scouting. “Combining outstanding performances and a deep love of Afrikaans Boer culture with delightful deviations from the romantic comedy formula, writer-director Henk Pretorius confirms the promise of Fanie Fourie’s Lobola with another meaningful, laugh-out-loud comedy about following your dreams and finding your place.”Watch the Leading Lady movie trailer hereLeading Lady is produced by Dark Matter Studios’ Llewelynn Greeff and Pretorius. The film is distributed in South Africa by Ster Kinekor Entertainment and will open in South Africa on 28 November.
