Charles Dunbar Burgess King
PRESIDENT

Charles Dunbar Burgess King

(1875 - 1961)

Charles Dunbar Burgess King was a member of the True Whig Party and served as President from 1920 until 1930. King was the foreign minister of Liberia from 1912 until he was elected President in 1920. Though a moderate supporter of reform, he continued to support the patronage machine and dominance of the True Whig party. He was challenged in the presidential election of 1927 by Thomas J. Faulkner: the official vote count showed a majority of 600,000 votes, however at the time Liberia had only 15,000 registered voters. This won King the dubious achievement of being listed in the Guinness Book of Records for the most fraudulent election ever reported in history. After losing the election, Faulkner accused many members of the True Whig Party government of recruiting and selling contract labor as slaves. A report by the League of Nations by a commission under the leadership of British jurist Cuthbert Christy, supported many of Faulkner's allegations, and implicated many government officials, including vice-president Allen B. Yancey. Yancey and King resigned over the scandal in December 1930.

KRAHN PEOPLE Krahn is an ethnic group of Liberia; it is also the language traditionally spoken by these people. The Krahn are a native tribe of people, who were present in the area known as Liberia before the formation of the country. When Liberia was founded in 1847 the Americo-Liberians tended to live on the coast, with the native tribes (including the Krahn) residing inland. It is thought that the Krahn were traditionally farmers, growing food, and keeping a few animals. Hunting and fishing was also practised. In terms of religion, many Krahn believe that objects have spirits or souls (animism). There are two variations of the language, Eastern and Western Krahn. Western Krahn is spoken in parts of Côte d'Ivoire and Liberia. From 1991 and 1993 research, there were an estimated 47,800 speakers in Liberia and 12,200 in Côte d'Ivoire. Eastern Krahn tends to be spoken natively only in Liberia, with a 1991 estimate of the number of speakers at about 47,000. There are many dialects of both of these languages. Dialects in Côte d'Ivoire tend to have a French influence. When the Krahn leader Samuel Doe came to power in Liberia (through a military coup in 1980) many Krahn speakers moved from the inland areas to the capital Monrovia. It is thought though that many ethnic Krahn brought up in the city will have not used the language. Following the removal of the Samuel Doe regime in 1989, and the onset of civil war, refugees have fled from Liberia to Côte d'Ivoire some taking the Krahn language with them. Members of the Krahn tribe founded a rebel group, the Movement for Democracy in Liberia (MODEL).
