Peter Jallah

Peter Jallah
Despite the fact that no one in Liberia has ever heard his comic routine, Peter Jallah IV may very well be the most popular Liberian comic in the world. While growing up in Liberia he was expected to follow in the footsteps of his father Peter Jallah Jr., a prominent lawyer and former Attorney General of Liberia, but by the time he reached high school, it was clear his talents lay elsewhere. He played pranks on a daily basis, and it wasn't long before his classmates gave him the nick-name, "fun box." In 1990, a Civil War engulfed Liberia, forcing Peter to flee to neighboring Sierra Leone, along with his mother and two sisters. After staying a year in Sierra Leone, he migrated to the U.S. to continue his education.

Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf

PRESIDENT
(November 2005 - )

First female president of Africa and of Liberia.

Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf (born October 29, 1938) is the President of Liberia. Her victory was formally announced by the Liberian electoral commission on 23rd November 2005 following the 2005 election. She is the first elected female President of an African country. Ms. Johnson-Sirleaf is the mother of four sons and has six grandchildren. Recipient of the 1988 Franklin Delano Roosevelt Freedom of Speech Award - Ralph Bunche International Leadership Award Grand Commander Star of Africa Redemption of Liberia - Commandeur de l'Ordre du Togo (Commander of the Order of Togo).

Having served as Finance Minister in William Tolbert’s True Whig government in the 1970s, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, also known as the ‘Iron Lady’, announced her intention to stand as senatorial candidate in the 1985 elections during the military rule of Samuel Doe. For a brave speech heavily critical of Doe, she was sentenced to ten years imprisonment, of which she served two short periods of detention, one before and one after the 1985 election, before fleeing the country. The years in exile until returning for the presidential race as standard-bearer of the Unity Party in 1997, gave her considerable international experience at the Citibank in Nairobi, the UNDP and the World Bank. She held the post of Director of the Regional Bureau for Africa at the UNDP, formulating development strategies for African economies, and was Senior Loans Officer at the World Bank. Although initially giving support to Charles Taylor’s 1989 invasion to oust Samuel Doe, Johnson-Sirleaf has been an implacable opponent ever since. Her non-involvement in the war and her financial expertise were a mainstay of her campaign message and she endeavoured to put across the image of an untainted, maternal figure. Charged with treason by the Taylor regime, she was quickly forced into another period of political exile, but promised to contest the 2005 elections and gloriously won from George Opong Weah in the second round on 8 November 2005.
