JOHN MORLU: THE CYCLE OF CORRUPTION IN LIBERIA MUST END WITH THE WEAH ADMINISTRATION

Date:

MONROVIA – Former Auditor General John Morlu says the cycle of corruption in Liberia must end with the Weah administration.

He pointed out that Liberians and international partners demand full accountability, and that President-elect Joseph Boakai is expected to deliver.

Morlu comment is in response to outgoing President Weah’s comments warning Boakai not to use audit as a tool to witch-hunt his officials. Weah said this could undermine the peace of the country.

But Morlu says Weah’s actions may sow disunity and chaos, and noted the pursuit of recovered stolen funds remains a priority for the people.

Mr. Morlu disclosed that the Unity Party government requested Weah to conduct an audit, a promise he made but failed to fulfill.

The former AG added that despite arresting Charles Sirleaf over a currency scandal, Weah’s neglect to audit the prior government is not a valid excuse for avoiding investigation.

Advocating for peace and reconciliation while retaining ill-gotten gains is an old trick in Liberia; pointing out that true harmony requires justice and accountability.

He called on Weah to focus on facts and evidence to avoid any semblance of witch-hunting.

He pointed out that honest scrutiny withstands legal challenges in the courts.

Weah’s responsibility was to audit the Sirleaf government, just as Boakai is accountable for auditing Weah’s administration, according to Morlu.

Morlu states that atempts to involve the Sirleaf government in moral relativism are distracting; adding that Weah had ample time to audit but chose not to, allowing corruption to persist.

  1. Do Mr. Weah and his gang of thieving officials think they can use their privileged public positions to steal all the resources of the country and go scott free just like that? Their six years in office represents the most corrupt period in the history of the country. The Boakai regime must recoup all stolen monies stashed both in and out of the country, and all ill-gotten properties in and out of the country. Any attempt by the JNB government to give these wicked, conscienceless and selfish CDC rogues a pass without thorough audit will invite the wrath of the Liberian people. The incoming government has been warned!
