All Hail Rob a The Omnipotent Envoya Sirleaf, Liberiaa s New a Foreign Ministera

The phrase "Chicken Comes Home to Roost" uttered by the U.S. black advocate, the late Malcolm X, in referring to the mafia-type assignation in Dallas of U.S. sitting president, Texas, the late John F. Kennedy, has caught up with the first female President of Africa. Malcolm X was saying that the U.S. government's use of violence to silence anyone who dare to question anti-people's policy created an environment for someone to kill the president of the U. S. Similarly, the late Malcolm X would have reminded President Sirleaf that the consequences of her bad economic policy have paralyzed the government and confused the citizens; hence, the Ebola crisis has reached 'catastrophic' levels, according to Doctors Without Borders.
