The deceased fled the war in her country into exile in Ghana and did not abandon her pursuit of education; she graduated from a Ghanaian teachers college and was employed with the Ghana education system, a milestone unprecedented of a foreign national living in Ghana.
Prior to going into exile in Ghana, the deceased attended the St. Teresa Convent High School, a Catholic High School in Liberia, one of the country’s respectable high schools.
The brutal murder of Rebecca in cold blood and the stone-cold silence of the Liberian government has sparked outrage from Liberians, questioning the purpose of their country having embassies around the world and expanding public resources when those embassies and the government itself don’t represent the interest of its citizens when they would not would conform to their legal responsibility of protecting its citizens at home and issue abroad.
One media executive described the lackadaisical behavior of Liberian embassies around the world and their government as “leaving you on your own when something wrong happens to you” …….. but if” Becke” were the daughter of the powerful and well-off in Liberia, I bet you, hell would break loose by now”. She is not an elite and so the government doesn’t care, another Liberian frustrated with the government’s response said.
Do you think if Rebecca was the daughter or grand-daughter of President of President Sirleaf she won’t had gotten involve personally? Yes, she would, a Liberian in the United States said…… the President attends her grand children high school and college graduations here in the United States, what you would do if it were one of them that was brutally murdered, a Liberian commented on the Liberian government inaction on the deceased killing.
The Liberian government is yet to issue her official position on the killing of one of its nationals within the territorial borders of the Ghana Republic by one its citizens. The Liberian embassy too in Ghana has yet to respond to the death of the deceased and a no legal representation made in the trial of the alleged shooter under way in Ghana.
