    6 years ago Comments: I don"t think that the Government of Liberia has the exclusive right to to encroach upon the rights of the indigenous people by tampering with the culture of the society and selling Kendeja. The entire area including MAMBA Point is an originally property of the MAMBA Bassa people. Previous governments of the settler class encroached upon land of these tribesmen with impunity. Tubman managed to calm the tension with his unification policy and Kendaja became a melting pot where various ethnic groups in Liberia can come together and display their values. My advice to Mr. Johnson is to leave Kendaya and build elsewhere I known that he has good intent to do something on the motherland. Not that Mrs Sirleaf does not know, but she does not care much about Liberia's cultural heritage since her father is a German. Maybe this is why she fought every true sons of the soil either to death, to jail or exile. I want to express my total opposition to the sale or relocation of Kendeja ( our cultural heritage), by signing this petition.

I agree that it needs to be preserved along with such other centers and locations. It is an important of who we are as a people--we should never loose sight of who we are! Let's save it please, I have children who have yet to visit Liberia.
