The Catholic Church has refused to respond to the release of a new explosive book detailing top level religious sex abuse in the Liberian Church. Decades of allegations of homosexual assaults on junior priest by superiors, the sexual abuse of minors and gross misuse of power that hung over the church are fully explained in the book titled ‘Vigilant Catholic’.

For two weeks Frontpage Africa has tried to contact the President of the Catholic Bishop Conference of Liberia, Bishop Anthony Borwah. He replied to the first email but failed to reply to a follow-up or answered his phone afterward. Bishop Borwah wrote,

“Dear Tecee,

I am traveling at the moment and will be back in Liberia in three weeks.

By next Friday, August 23rd, you will get the Church’s position from me or a representative of the Church.


Bishop Tony Borwah”

The Secretary of the Catholic Bishop Conference Father Dennis Nimene also failed to respond after a visit to his office did not yield fruit. When contacted by phone, Father Nimene responded, “How can I respond to allegations in a book that I have not read?”
