Thomas Kaydor’s ‘Liberian Democracy: A Critique of Checks and Balances’ is an outstanding account of the governance problem in Liberia. The Legislature and the Judiciary are indeed weak, ineffective, greedy and corrupt. Many of the law makers are inept, semi illiterate and self-interested thereby denying the citizens the fair share of their resources. This makes the Executive more powerful. Qualified Liberians must therefore integrate forces to place experienced, competent and development oriented people in the Legislature. The first branch of government is the seat of political power, change and transformation in Liberia.
