LIBERIAN JOURNALIST JAMES SEITUA IS DEAD

Date:

The Association Of Liberian Journalists In The Americas (ALJA) is deeply saddened by the death, in his 67th year, of Mr. James Seitua, former editor of the Daily Observer Newspaper.

Mr. Seitua died on October 13, 2022, at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton, Massachusetts following a period of an on-and-off ailment.

Mr. Seitua joined the Daily Observer in 1986 as a Senior Reporter, under the tutelage of Mr. Kenneth Yarkparo Best as Managing Director and the late Stanton B. Peabody as Editor-in-Chief. Due to his prolific writing skills, Mr. Seitua eventually rose through the ranks, becoming Deputy News Editor in the late 1980s, until the eruption of the civil war.

Born on December 5, 1954, in Bendaja, Porkpa District, Cape Mount County, Mr. Seitua was a product of the Lott Carey Mission High School in Brewerville on the outskirts of Monrovia after which attended the University of Liberia for two years. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Olivia Seitua, three adult children—Marcia Seitua, James S. Seitua, Jr. Jimmlyn Seitua–and one grandchild.

The late Seitua was reportedly a founding member of the Association of Liberian Journalists in the Americas (ALJA). On behalf of the Board of Directors, the National Executive Committee, and the entire membership of ALJA, I extend sincere condolences to the bereaved family for this irreparable loss. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
