MATTHEW NYANPLU EVALUATES FORMER CDC’S GOVERNANCE UNDER PRESIDENT WEAH

Date:

MONROVIA – Matthew Nyanplu, a political commentator and Assistant Minister for Information Services at the Ministry of Information, has voiced substantial concerns regarding the governance of the previous ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) under President George Manneh Weah’s administration.

On Friday, April 19, in a Facebook post, Nyanplu expressed skepticism about the CDC’s ability to maintain ethical leadership in Liberia, citing the worsening condition of government offices and operations.

Recent reports suggest that government offices are experiencing shortages of essential stationery, office supplies, computers, desks, and chairs. Some offices have been described as having “rotten bathrooms,” underscoring a troubling level of neglect and decay. Despite these critical challenges, CDC party officials, including former Chairman Mulbah Morlu and acting National Chairman Janga Kowo, continue to issue statements.

Nyanplu remarked, “I hope they will be ashamed of the disgrace and damage they’ve inflicted on this country and refrain from speaking. Mulbah Morlu served as the chairman of CDC, and Janga Kowo was Comptroller General when the Finance Minister touted budget surpluses. Yet, government offices are deteriorating, and only they know where the money is going. We are tired of the constant noise.”

The deteriorating situation has left many feeling disillusioned, with Nyanplu sharing his own despondency just two weeks into the government’s term. He described personal challenges faced in his office, such as having to fund document printing and photocopying out of his pocket due to resource shortages.

Nyanplu added, “Like many today, MICAT was without power. The building was unbearably hot, halting work. While advocacy demands active involvement, CDC officials should refrain from adding to the noise.”

Nyanplu’s concerns reflect wider frustrations with the CDC government’s management and governance of public resources. As Liberia grapples with these challenges, there is a growing demand for transparency, accountability, and improved governance to address the pressing issues facing the nation.
