State of the Nation Speech
I can't find a transcript online, but here's VOA's take. It was a reeeeeeeeealy long speech outlining the government's progress over the last year. President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf sounded confident, and the applause from lawmakers was plentiful. This morning most papers were devoted to the controversy about the divided house, and the protocol stuff about where she delivered the speech, who attended and who didn't, etc. But I guess that's a juicier story than the complicated issues of national development she spoke about.
