SAMUEL RAYMOND DIVINE
Running candidate for the 2005 Presidential Elections, mr. Divine said - "Given the small size of our country, the low level of population and inter marriages among all ethnic groups there should be no reason for disunity. We need UNITY in Liberia more than anything else. In order to achieve the unity to carry our peace process to its true purpose of EUALITY, Liberians must learn to love and appreciate the unique differences and commonalities of each group".
Samuel Kanyon Doe
(May 6, 1950 - September 9, 1990)

Samuel Kanyon Doe
"In 1980, Samuel Doe, a 28-year-old indigenous Krahn, Master Sergeant (Staff Sergeant) in the Liberian army, seized power and killed William Tolbert, the last Americo-Liberian president. Doe was a dictator of Liberia from 1980 to late 1989. When Doe took over, he knew nothing about how to run a government. He was illiterate, and he had little education. He learned quickly how to make himself rich and how to shore up political support. He demolished the True Whig party that had controlled Liberia's politics for more than a hundred years, but he did not replace it with any other coherent form of government. He was good at developing allies. He learned English, Liberia's official language, by studying videotapes of Ronald Reagan who invited him to the White House and called him "Chairman Moe". During the culmination of the cold war in the 1980s, Doe courted the Reagan-era American Republicans and received millions of dollars of American aid. The American aid established Voice of America transmitters and maintained the Robertsfield airport which the U.S. used to transport weapons to Angola.". There was popular support for Doe and his People's Redemption Council (PRC) from the majority population of native Liberians since this was the first time a native led the country since independence in 1847. But Doe's popularity disappeared rapidly as his rule began to resemble that of his predecessors. Like them, Doe created a governmental system that benefited one ethnic group, in this case the Krahns, who made up only 4 per cent of the population. The ethnic groups in Liberia are Bassa, Belle, Dei, Gbandi, Gio, Gola, Grebo, Kpelle, Kissi, Krahns, Kru, Loma, Mandingos, Mano Mende, Sapo, and Vai. Doe was captured in Monrovia by Prince Johnson on September 9, 1990 and was killed shortly thereafter.

One of the most consoling and encouraging aspects of our work in Liberia is to see the very significant numbers of God lay helpers who work alongside our Salesians. The two gatherings to celebrate the feast of Don Bosco included so many who are sharing in our spirit and mission.
