Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Liberia, Development, Governance, Politics

Dr. Sipho Moyo visits Liberia, [1] a country of many firsts in Africa: “Liberia was Africa’s first republic, colonized in 1822 and declared independent in 1847. It is also home to Africa’s first female president: President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. I met with her last week at the Executive Mansion in Monrovia during a ONE listening and learning trip.”
