As such, residents in all quarters of the country should help bring the suspect to police for investigation.The late Joyce Otu-Jawheh celebrated her 53rd natal day on Friday, March 23, 2018 (photo courtesy: Bethel World Outreach Church, Robbinsdale, Minnesota).According to information, police received a tip-off reportedly from the mother of suspect Browne, Tellewo Jallah, from her Kakata residence. The mother allegedly told police that two days after the crime was committed, her son (Browne) sent her a phone call in which he said, “Mama, I killed one woman in Monrovia (ELWA) Community, but am running away to avoid police arrest, because I am still in Monrovia.”  This information is yet to be verified.Madam Jaywheh was gruesomely murdered in the early evening of Saturday, March 23, in her three-bedroom fenced house in the Zoewloh neighborhood of ELWA in Paynesville. She had celebrated her 53rd birthday anniversary the previous day.While neighbors could not give any account of circumstances leading to the death of Madam Jaywheh, some of the community residents attributed her death to the number of ghettos in the neighborhood, from which residents have been reportedly terrorized by marauding armed robbers and suspected criminals, with the thieves sometimes making away with valuable items.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more


Bush veto of water bill soaked

WASHINGTON – The House approved what could become the first override of a President Bush veto Tuesday, with Republicans joining Democrats in challenging the president over a $23.2 billion water resources bill that addresses pressing infrastructure needs while offering hundreds of home district projects. “I must respectfully disagree with President Bush’s veto of this important and long overdue water resources development act,” said Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., the top Republican on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, in explaining the rare rebellion of the GOP faithful toward the president. The vote was 361-54, well over the two-thirds majority needed to negate a presidential veto. The Senate, which approved the bill 81-12 in September, could cast its override vote as early as today. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said Bush’s argument that the bill is fiscally irresponsible rings hollow when the White House is asking for an additional $200 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Fiscally responsible people maintain their infrastructure,” he said. “Fiscally responsible people know that clean water and safe harbors aid our commerce and the health of our people.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Bush did not veto a single bill during the first five years of his presidency.last_img read more
