PHILADELPHIA – Madam Sara Beysolow Nyanti, a seasoned diplomat with an impressive 18-year tenure at the United Nations, has emerged victorious against the storm of social media propaganda orchestrated by Martin Kollie. Not only has she weathered the onslaught, but she has also ascended to the prestigious position of Minister of Foreign Affairs, appointed by the President of Liberia, Joseph N. Boakai.
The tale unfolds as Martin Kollie, a fervent supporter of the ruling Unity Party, self-styled as ‘Rescue Rambo’ during elections, launched an aggressive campaign on Facebook. However, his efforts to tarnish Madam Nyanti’s reputation crumbled in the face of truth and merit. President Boakai, recognizing her unwavering dedication and credentials, has entrusted her with the crucial role of leading Liberia’s foreign affairs.
Delving deeper into the shadows, it has come to light that Martin Kollie was not acting alone in his campaign against Nyanti. Astoundingly, he has been revealed to be a hired gun, employed by individuals with vested interests in assuming the position of Foreign Minister. Their nefarious scheme aimed to damage Nyanti’s stellar reputation and make way for their own ambitions.
This revelation adds a sinister layer to Kollie’s actions, as it appears he has a history of attacking individuals of high moral character as a means of blackmail. It is alleged that he seeks financial gain either directly from his targets or from those who employ him for such character-assassination endeavors.
In the face of adversity, Sara Beysolow Nyanti stands not only as a diplomat of great repute but also as a resilient figure who has risen above orchestrated attacks. Her appointment as Minister of Foreign Affairs is a testament to her capabilities and integrity, while the shadowy dealings behind Kollie’s campaign cast a spotlight on the murky world of political machinations in Liberia. The triumph of truth over propaganda marks a significant chapter in the unfolding narrative of Liberia’s political landscape.
Over the course of her professional journey, Sara Beysolow Nyanti ascended the professional ladder, occupying esteemed roles such as the UN Resident Coordinator in Nepal in 2021, UNICEF Representative in Yemen from 2019 to 2020, and in the Gambia from 2015 to 2017. Prior to her high-profile representational positions, Nyanti made substantial technical contributions within UNICEF and UNDP, focusing on establishing systems for large-scale grant management, Ebola response, social protection/cash transfers, HIV/AIDS, health, and education.
A few years ago, Sara Beysolow Nyanti achieved one of the pinnacles in the UN hierarchy when Secretary-General António Guterres appointed her as Deputy Special Representative to the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), UN Resident Coordinator in South Sudan, and Humanitarian Coordinator in the East African nation. This appointment elevated her to the rank of UN Assistant Secretary General.
Beysolow-Nyanti holds a master’s degree in public administration from the New Charter University, USA, and completed a second master’s in management and leadership from Western Governors University, USA. She is also an accredited Broker with the United Kingdom-based international Partnership Broker Association, managing and developing collaboration processes. Currently, she is pursuing a doctoral degree in Transformational Leadership.
