And So They Came

first_imgPresident Samuel K. Doe sat in his office with three of his aides, called to a gathering which the president had warned was to be held in the strictest secrecy. The lives of his security operatives, as well as those of the cabinet officials and relations who had taken refuge with him in the Executive Mansion, he said, were at stake. Their only choice now was to pack their satokas – abandon the Mansion and seek refuge, probably leave the country even, onboard one of the ECOMOG military ships at the Freeport of Monrovia, where he had been told the newly arrived peacekeeping force to Liberia had set up their quarters. This option the president had, of course, pondered for four days. Actually he hated the idea of going to meet the peacekeeping force. It could put him, President of Liberia though he was, in the position of a beggar, subjecting him to a lack of respect from whoever the force commander was. And his pride would not have him humbled. At least not by some obscure West African soldier who, because of the Liberian Civil War, finds himself suddenly a celebrity. Yet those four days he had waited in vain. Nobody would come to him. He would have to go himself — that is to say, if he did not want the rebels to capture and kill him.And although he had sent three soldiers to get in touch with the peacekeeping force, one of these had been shot and killed, the other had fled, and the third soldier had returned with the news that he and the others had gotten only as far as Clara Town when they were shot at by a group of INPFL rebels. The president could well have sent a few more of his men. But the failure of the initial undertaking, especially when it was found that one of the soldiers was known to have deserted, had cast a pall over any further venture of this kind. And as much as he would have liked to begin by telephone a communiqué with the ECOMOG force, he had no knowledge of their code. Besides the telephone lines across the country were broken, and he had heard that ELBC had been ransacked and riddled with bullets.How easy it had been in the days following his successful coup d’état and subsequent overthrow of the Tolbert government! At that time the radio and television companies, both privately-owned and funded by the government, were in full vigor and all too ready and willing to hear him out when he took to the airwaves. Even the BBC had not been an exception. He could recall that he had spoken with a group of international correspondents as the cameras flashed and the foreign journalists recorded his thoughts and opinions, his gestures even. But now things were completely different. The war had seen to that much. And in a way he could never have dreamed of almost a decade earlier. But revolving in his mind the circumstances which had brought him to this stage of the conflict, Samuel K. Doe could feel nothing but regrets. He could remember that at the height of the war ECOWAS had tried to persuade him to resign and go into exile. Even his close friend and confidante, President Ibrahim Babangida, had himself added his voice to the chorus. But besieged at the Executive Mansion, with more than half of the country having fallen to the rebels, he refused. His decision had, like that of President Tubman before him, as well as a number of African heads of states like Gamal Abdel Nasser, Robert Mugabe, Yayah Jammeh, Gnassinbé Eyadéma, etc., some of whom would be either dead or still in office long after he was gone, been due in part to his own greed for power; and in part to the counsel of his advisors, many of whom had got it into his head that the impending civil war would turn out no better than Quiwonkpa’s coup. But most of these so-called advisors, made up of equally greedy and spineless politicians, businessmen, intellectuals, cabinet officials and relations, had since fled to the United States, leaving him with no more than a handful of loyalists, many of them Krahn. But the arms and ammunition at their disposal, including food, was not likely to last more than a fortnight. Their only choice now was to beat it. Their journey towards the Freeport would most likely be fraught with danger; a confrontation with INPFL rebels at most, but was better than starving to death in the Executive Mansion. Besides most of his men had been trained by the Israelis and had proved, more than on one occasion, that they were more than a match for the rebels. Obviously, they ought to try their luck.“We can’t send any more of our men to meet the ECOMOG force,” the president was saying. “The first effort was a failure, and the rebels would be waiting.”The three men sitting with the president, including the redoubtable Captain Tailey, nodded their heads. Tailey spoke up, “This ECOMOG force commander is he a Ghanaian or a Nigerian?”“He’s a Ghanaian,” said President Doe. “But I had hoped it was a Nigerian. Given my relationship with Babangida, the Nigerians are more likely to give me the best protection. Well, what you think of this Ghanaian force commander?”“I’ve not met the man myself,” said Captain Tailey, shrugging his shoulders. “But it seems strange that the Nigerians have allowed a Ghanaian to be in charge of this peacekeeping force. But then, I’ve heard that this peacekeeping operation by ECOWAS is influenced so much by politics that you can expect anything to happen. But since the Nigerians are there, we can only hope for the best,” added the former elephant hunter. He was broad and stocky and spoke with a powerful contralto.The President nodded. “We should go to the Freeport with about thirty of our men, I think.”“Yes, of course,” said a middle-aged, fair-complexioned man in a red beret. His voice, like those of the others, had the distinctive twang of The Krahn. He was tall and slim. “The corporal who came back told me that he counted about a dozen INPF rebels on the road to Clara Town. He believes that they’ve concentrated their forces towards Somalia Drive, from where they assume the NPFL will attack. With about thirty of our men we could reach and enter the Freeport, even if we were confronted by the rebels. And once we’re there, I doubt the rebels would try to attack the ECOMOG force.”“They wouldn’t dare,” said the third soldier, a woman somewhere in her early thirties. There were deep scars on her face, so that it looked as if she were engaged more frequently in hand to hand fighting than shooting from rifles. “Besides,” she added, “we’ve signed with the rebels a ceasefire agreement with the help of ECOWAS. Although the NPLF is more likely to break the ceasefire, we have little or nothing to fear from the INPFL. They aren’t as well-armed and many as the NPFL. They might also need some arms and ammunition from the peacekeepers and aren’t likely to attack their headquarters.” “What’s the state of our arms and ammunition?” the President asked.“Our machine guns have all run out of ammo and the rebels nearly shot our only tank to pieces,” said Captain Tailey. “But we’ve a number of hand grenades and ammunition for our rifles, which could last for about a week only.”The president heaved a heavy sigh; the room fell quiet.Then the storm burst. They all rose and ran to the window. A barrage of automatic fire, followed by heavy explosions, had started in the distance towards the Freeport of Monrovia. The NPFL had just attacked the ECOMOG headquarters.Copyright © Saah Millimono 2016About the author: Saah Millimono is the author of Broken Dreams, which was awarded the Short Fiction Prize of the Sea Breeze Journal of Contemporary Liberian Writings.

Classic Transfer: Chelsea complete deal for South American Serie A star

first_img1 In August 2003 there was a Russian revolution happening in west London.Roman Abramovich took his billions to Chelsea in July and after buying the club for a reported £140million he ushered in a new era at Stamford Bridge.Cash was quickly splashed on numerous players including talented West Ham duo Glen Johnson and Joe Cole, Irish wing wonder Damien Duff and Man United midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron, as the new owners attempted to turn the Blues into serious title contenders.Buoyed by his substantial transfer kitty, manager Claudio Ranieri looked to add another striker to his ranks to link up with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Eidur Gudjohnsen and the newly acquired Adrian Mutu.Hernan Crespo was that man.After a season-long spell with Inter Milan, which had been interrupted by injury, the Argentine star moved to Chelsea for £16.8million.Crespo had been prolific in Serie A having netted 108 league goals across seven campaigns with Parma, Lazio and Inter and the Nerazzurri’s decision to sell their striker certainly irked his strike partner Christian Vieri.The Italian striker said: “What are we doing? Instead of reinforcing we are weakening. Inter sold Ronaldo and in his place bought Crespo and now they are selling him. It is better to sell me, really, once and for all. Certain [Inter] directors need to stay far away from me because if I lost it for five minutes I’d have them all nailed to a wall.”It took the Argentine until his third appearance for the Blues to open his goal scoring account, when he came off the bench and hit a brace against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League.And the goals continued to flow as he hit the back of the net five games in a row for club and country across October and November, but a drought soon followed with strikes against Bolton, Fulham and Portsmouth his only goals until April.Crespo’s drop in form saw questions raised over his future and when ‘Tinkerman’ Ranieri became Abramovich’s first managerial casualty, his successor, a bright upstart by the name of Jose Mourinho, decided to sign Didier Drogba from Marseille and loan the Argentine to AC Milan.Back at the San Siro, he flourished again and it looked like he was about to become a Champions League winner after scoring twice to put Milan 3-0 ahead at half time in the 2005 final against Liverpool. But instead their opponents produced one of the greatest comebacks in history to lift the trophy in Istanbul on penalties.Mourinho did welcome Crespo back to Chelsea for the 2005/06 season and he repaid the Portuguese boss’ faith with 13 goals across all competitions, which helped the Blues win their second consecutive title.But Crespo’s time in west London was cut short when the striker, who had trouble settling in the English capital, agreed a two-year loan with former side Inter Milan.On his return to Italy he won consecutive titles under Roberto Mancini and, as a result, finally ended his Chelsea career by joining Internazionale on a free transfer in 2008.

Sam Allardyce interview: ‘My life was in turmoil… Crystal Palace saved me’

first_imgAllardyce was secretly filmed meeting reporters posing as businessmen and was claimed to have offered advice on how to “get around” rules on third-party ownership of players.He has always denied any wrongdoing and, speaking to Jim White on Thursday, insisted he had been vindicated by this week’s ruling by the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO).While IPSO ruled the Telegraph’s investigation was justified in the public interest and was “generally accurate”, the press regulator found that they had breached the Editors’ Code on three specific points, including the allegations about third-party ownership (TPO) that the FA stated were the reasons for Allardyce’s departure.“We have won on the three biggest counts,” said Big Sam, in response to IPSO dismissing the other 22 complaints he made about the investigation.“Inaccuracy is an understatement, it was done on purpose. They had to maximise the sensationalism of the story.“The point (on TPO) was the biggest one of all and that was the reason I lost the England job.” Crystal Palace put a smile back on Sam Allardyce’s face 3 Getty Images Sam Allardyce has given an emotional interview to talkSPORT about the ‘turmoil’ he went through after losing the England job.The 63-year-old was forced to depart his dream role as manager of the national team after just 67 days in September 2016 following an undercover investigation by the Daily Telegraph aimed at exposing corruption in football. Sam Allardyce’s England dream turned into a nightmare “Crystal Palace saved me, they got me out of the depression I was suffering,” he said.“My life was in turmoil.“I was living in a cloud I couldn’t get myself out of at that time.“What followed for many, many weeks (after losing the England job) was so upsetting and disturbing.“I have gone through the mill and come out the other side.”Listen to the full emotional interview with Sam Allardyce on talkSPORT above Allardyce’s lawyer, Mark Bateman, joined him on the Jim White show and added: “IPSO is a press regulator that the press have put in, rather than government.“They are not entirely independent, whatever they want to call themselves, and the bottom line is after two years even they have had to come out and say ‘no, Telegraph, you got this significant element of the story wrong’ and for this to happen is remarkable.”On the Football Association’s decision to dispense with his services, Allardyce claimed the governing body had failed to follow employment law when sacking him.“I didn’t expect the reaction (from the FA),” he said.“I’d got called down to Wembley and I’d actually been at a golf tournament when it broke. I had to get home and see what the situation was. I didn’t really know how to react or what to do.“To cut a long story short it was about ‘let’s wait and see what happens’. And clearly by the time I got down there it wasn’t about that, it was all done and dusted in a few hours, which was a huge shock.“I had no choice in leaving, and none of the employment laws that you would expect were followed. I can’t really say any more than that.”Allardyce was back in football within two months of his exit from England, taking charge of Crystal Palace.He spent just five months at Selhurst Park but says the time there helped him get his life back on track. 3 Getty Images 3 Getty Images Sam Allardyce says he was in a bad place after losing the England job last_img read more
