Sei Rubel Gehyeka (BBA, MSA) considers that many readers are knowledgeable about the 14 years of civil war in Liberia, but majority seem to lack knowledge about the military regime that laid the groundwork. With this, he brings forth “Inside the People’s Redemption Council Government of Liberia: The Untold Story” (published by LifeRich Publishing), a book that offers an explanation on what really paved the way to the “senseless” war and how Liberia almost came to an abrupt end.

Gehyeka states that after 133 years (1847–1980) of relative peace and stability in Liberia, the unthinkable happened. A group of enlisted noncommissioned officers of the military seized control of the government. For five years, they monopolized power, and the key leadership was only removed by a civil war. Gehyeka believes that the war was caused by the birth and death of the People’s Redemption Council (PRC) government. In the book, he presents what he thinks has been left out of many conversations about his motherland and may possibly be left out of its history.

“The PRC government was unplanned and shocked everyone. Nobody knew its plan of action. It put Liberia in the hands of unprepared and undisciplined people,” Gehyeka expresses. Exposing some of the inner working of the PRC government that ruined the Liberian society, Gehyeka hopes that the book may serve as a revelation to readers and make them understand that such act should never be repeated in the future.
