The Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA) on Thursday, November 28, 2019 hosted its first Public lecture forum at the VIP Lounge of the Monrovia City Hall.
The forum named in honor of LIPA’S first Director General Dr. Augustus F. Caine was held under the Theme: Peace, Unity and Reconciliation: Removing the Impediments.
The event which is expected to be held on the last Friday of every month was graced by several dignitaries from both the Public and Private Sectors of Liberia.
The presenters at the forum included Liberia’s Peace Ambassador Dr. William R. Tolbert lll, Professor T. Debey Sayndee of the Kofi Annan Institute of Peace and Conflict Transformation of the University of Liberia.
Both speakers during their presentation lamented on Liberia’s past history and recommended ways by which the country wounds can be healed.
Dr. Tolbert speaking on the Sub Theme: Peace and Conflict Prevention explained how the late President William R. Tolbert and 13 officials of his government  were kill on firing squad, stating that ‘it was now time that the major actors in Liberia’s past history  come together to begin the process of reconciliation.’
For his part, Professor T. Debey Sayndee began his presentation by pointing out that Liberia as a Country was founded by all Liberians regardless of tribe, religion or cultural practice and criticized the political system in the country, adding that Liberia does not have a democracy because there are no political Institutions.
Serving as discussants at the forum were former Chief Justice of Liberia Cllr. Gloria Musu Scott, Cuttington University President Herman Browne, President of the Liberia Civil Society Organizations Francess Greaves, Political Affairs Officer of ECOWAS Commission, Nathaniel Walker and the Acting Chair of the Independent National Commission on Human Rights Atty. Bartholomew B. Colley.
Giving her perspective on the topic, the former Chief Justice Cllr. Gloria M. Scott agreed with the presenters calling for a more genuine peace and reconciliation process and proposed that apologies from perpetrators be made holistically.
She cited instances where the indigenous were ill-treated by the settlers by taking their lands in the name of exercising authority and expanding the Country.
Speaking earlier, LIPA’S Acting Director General Hon. Amara Kamara said, the holding of the DR. Augustus F. Caine Lecture Series is one of the Institute’s projects that would help shape public policies, attitudes and behaviors in various forms and areas.
“It will promote the open Government initiative and encourage transparency as well as increasing the Public understanding of how government functions. We expect that this forum will help reduce perceptions and misinformation as well as help to define the way to peace, unity and reconciliation,” the Acting Director General stated.
