Mr. Joe Gene Mulbah, President /CEO, Musons Group, Inc. To pave way for real estate homesMusons Group Incorporated, a Liberian-owned real estate development and construction company, has opened its first international branch in Newark, State of Delaware, United States of America. The president and chief executive officer (CEO) of the Musons Group, Joe Gene Mulbah, in an exclusive with the Daily Observer newspaper, said the need to set up an international branch with five staff, came through the intervention of the group that has been working with his company to attract financing for its multi-million dollar resort project in the county.Mr. Mulbah said the setting up of the international office will serve as a guarantor to those Liberians in the Diaspora, who are expected to engage Musons Group in the construction of private and real estate homes, trusting that their money will not be squandered as is currently the case with many Liberians who entrust construction of their homes with friends and family members.“For the past two years, Liberians coming home from the Diaspora to inspect construction projects have always come to our offices crying over failure of those projects; families squander their money and take pictures of other people’s homes and send same to them,” Joe said.To show seriousness and determination, Mr. Mulbah said his company carried out its own business case study for over two years, and that at present there are over 150 persons who are standing by to start their projects. He further disclosed that a website is going to be launched this weekend, “so that when you start your project we will give you coordinates of where your project is being carried out, and through our website you will see live what is happening in Liberia with your money; nobody will give you cellphone talks.While giving a breakdown of how his company will carry out projects, Mr. Mulbah said it will be based on what he described as ‘Triple Seven,’ “you will deposit the first amount, which has a baseline of US$7,000 upward, then every month you make US$700 payment in continuation of your project; and within seven years you should be able to pay for your home, and you will live in there while you continue to pay as is done like mortgage.”Continuing, Mulbah said that with the expected huge demand for housing and estate projects, Musons Group is currently training Liberians, while considerations will be given to people in the sub-region with the same basic training, who will work along with their Liberian counterparts.The Musons boss asserted that he is currently holding discussions with the company’s banks in Liberia aimed at partnering, “because all the payments that will be made in the United States by individuals for projects will be transferred to the bank that we will be dealing with in Liberia.“As well as that, Joe said, discussions are being held with financing companies in the United States that are in the mortgage business, some of which he said have bought the idea and expressed willingness to work with them, “and that maybe within the next 60 days we will have the first US$1.5 million that will go into that project account. Some will be transferred here and when those people begin to pay we will start the project with that; so the financing option has been worked out and the prospect is good.”With respect to the US$71.6 multi-million hotel investment agreement ratified by the Senate in 2017, Mulbah said that investors have already expressed interest and have held meetings with them in the U.S. on procedures of implementing the project, “and have given a letter through the agent representing them that they are prepared to finance the project and within 90 to 120 days, we should be getting initial funding to do the ground breaking this dry season.”With the expected continuing moral support from the government, Joe expressed optimism that in no time Musons Group, Incorporated will be one of the biggest Liberian-owned companies providing thousands of jobs. “All we need is moral support and from our interactions, we are already receiving that from government officials.” He said when the projects kick off, based on demand, the Musons Group, Inc. will definitely subcontract some of the projects.“This is not just about Musons, we alone will not be able to handle all demands that will be coming from the Diaspora so we will include other Liberian institutions and subcontract them to to do some of the units.”In a related development, Mr. Mulbah has paid special tribute to the staff of the Musons Group, especially his wife, Mrs. Tanneh P. Mulbah, vice president for Administration of Musons, who, he said, continues to stand by him and is dedicated to the institution, “because as the saying goes, behind every successful man is a successful woman.”Musons Group, Incorporated was founded on August 5, 1996, and in recent years, has gained recognition for marvelous engineering and architectural works, with the latest being the diagnostic health facility at the ELWA Junction in Paynesville.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
A conference is bringing together interested parties from across B.C’s north to talk about the difficulties associated with northern transportation.The two-day conference, taking place in Prince George, is focused around air, rail, ferry and road transportation in the north, says Fort St. John Mayor Bruce Lantz.- Advertisement -Lantz says he had chosen to organize the conference since a few years ago he heard Premier Gordon Campbell talk about how the north would be driving the provincial economy. However, Lantz says he realized that there are several challenges surrounding accessible transportation in the north. He says he feels the challenges impede business and is extremely costly.The conference includes mayors, regional district chairs and other stake holders from across northern B.C. who are discussing the problems surrounding different modes of transportation in the north. As well, Lantz says the group is trying to come up with practical solutions to the various transportation dilemmas.Lantz says one of his main concerns centres around transportation on the Alaska Highway. He says he would like to have at least part of the highway, between Dawson Creek and Fort St. John, expanded from two lanes to four throughout. He also says he would like to examine ways to make air travel more efficient. Instead of having most flights go through Vancouver before someone can fly to another northern city, he says he would like to have East-West connections.The ideas from this conference will be brought forward at the North Central Local Government Association.Advertisement
The Falcons (18-11), who have never won a section championship and are seeking their first title game appearance since 1996, will play Temescal Canyon of Lake Elsinore (22-6) at 7:30 p.m. at Lakeside High of Lake Elsinore. Palmdale is coming off a 52-45 upset of Vista Murrieta on Saturday, a No. 2 seed that it trailed 14-3 early in the game. Corisis stresses fundamentals in practices, even in late February, when most of his coaching counterparts allow their players to scrimmage. His teams are known for playing hard-nosed, in-your-face defense. Corisis said he has adjusted to today’s players, whom he finds less accepting of criticism, but is an admittedly demanding coach who pushes players and doesn’t always tell them what they want to hear. But these days, Corisis might have outdone himself. Palmdale has come through a series of obstacles to advance to tonight’s Southern Section Division II-A semifinals. PALMDALE – Nothing done by the Palmdale High girls’ basketbll team should come as a surprise, given its tradition of pulling off shocking upsets. Soon after coach George Corisis took over the unheralded program in the early 1980s, the team pulled off improbable playoff upsets over San Gabriel and Foothill of Santa Ana, considered among the state’s elite. “We live in an age of entitlement,” Corisis said. “Unfortunately, in our society, mediocrity is accepted now.” It has never been acceptable to Corisis, who recorded his 500th career victory Feb. 21 – 40-34 over St. Joseph’s of Santa Maria. His 502 career wins (all at Palmdale) lead in the Daily News coverage area and place him eighth in the state. This year, he’s pushed a team that many had written off before the season started. firstname.lastname@example.org (661) 267-7802 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

“Al-Qaida is not merely for the benefit of Muslims,” he said. “That’s why I want blacks in America, people of color, American Indians, Hispanics, and all the weak and oppressed in North and South America, in Africa and Asia, and all over the world.” Al-Zawahri claimed al-Qaida fighters in Iraq were “nearing closer to victory over their enemy, despite this sectarian fighting” that has convulsed the country. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Al-Zawahri, shown seated before a bookshelf in a white robe and turban, addresses legislation pushed by Democratic leaders, and vetoed by Bush, that would have required the first U.S. troops in Iraq to be withdrawn by Oct. 1 with a goal of a complete pullout six months later. “This bill will deprive us of the opportunity to destroy the American forces which we have caught in a historic trap,” al-Zawahri said, according to a transcript released by the monitoring group SITE. The bill is evidence of American “failure and frustration,” he added. “We ask Allah that they (U.S. troops) only get out of it after losing 200,000 to 300,000 killed, in order that we give the spillers of blood in Washington and Europe an unforgettable lesson,” he said. He made no mention of Bush vetoing the bill on Thursday – an indication the video may have been made beforehand. Al-Zawahri encouraged minorities around the world to join the holy war, or jihad. CAIRO, Egypt – A new video of al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader released on Saturday mocks President Bush and U.S. legislation requiring the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, saying the bill would rob the group’s fighters of the chance to kill more Americans. Osama bin Laden’s deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, derided the new U.S.-backed Baghdad security plan, recounting an April 12 suicide bombing in Baghdad’s heavily protected Green Zone when an attacker slipped through security and killed a Sunni legislator in the Iraqi parliament’s cafeteria. An al-Qaida-led amalgam of Sunni insurgents in Iraq claimed responsibility. “And lest Bush worry, I congratulate him on the success of his security plan, and I invite him on the occasion for a glass of juice, but in the cafeteria of the Iraqi parliament in the middle of the Green Zone,” al-Zawahri said. The video was obtained Saturday by U.S.-based monitoring groups who released a transcript to media.
