MCSS WORKERS UNION CALLS FOR REMOVAL OF ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT ROBERTSON OVER MISCONDUCT CLAIMS

Date:

MONROVIA, LIBERIA – The Workers Union of the Monrovia Consolidated School System (MCSS) has publicly demanded the removal of Assistant Superintendent Emmanuel Kayne Robertson, appointed by President Joseph Nyumah Boakai. The union has accused Robertson of misconduct and called for his immediate recall to restore professionalism and order within the MCSS.

Founded in 1964, the MCSS provides primary and secondary education in Monrovia, Liberia. Despite its critical role, the system faces disruption as the union alleges a series of grievances against Robertson since his appointment.

Key Allegations Against Robertson

Unprofessional Behavior: Robertson is accused of actions harmful to the professional environment at MCSS, leading to public ridicule and denigration of the institution.

Disrespect: Reports indicate Robertson frequently disrespects senior staff, including Superintendent James A.S. Momoh, during official meetings.

Unauthorized Policy Statements: He is accused of making policy statements on behalf of MCSS, a responsibility designated to the Superintendent.

Unilateral Decisions: Robertson allegedly appoints individuals to positions without consulting the Superintendent or Human Resource Director.

Lack of Experience: The union claims Robertson lacks the necessary understanding and experience for his role.

Opposition to Renovation: Robertson reportedly obstructs necessary renovations of the central office, worsening the already poor working conditions.

The union’s statement highlights that the position of Assistant Superintendent for Instructions is a civil servant role, not a presidential appointment, questioning the legitimacy of Robertson’s appointment. They call for the reinstatement of Samuel Johnson, who is still on the payroll, arguing he was the legitimately recruited Assistant Superintendent.

Immediate Actions Demanded

Recall of Robertson: The union demands President Boakai rescind Robertson’s appointment to restore calm and professionalism at MCSS.

Enforcement by Civil Service Agency: They urge the Civil Service Agency (CSA) and the MCSS Council to ensure Samuel Johnson resumes his duties without delay.

Renovation Compliance: The union insists that Roberts’ resistance to office renovations must end to improve working conditions.

Robertson, a member of the ruling Unity Party and former legislative candidate, has not commented on the allegations as attempts to reach him have been unsuccessful.

However, the union’s demand underscores significant unrest within the MCSS, emphasizing the need for decisive action to address these internal conflicts. The outcome of this dispute will likely impact the functioning and reputation of the Monrovia Consolidated School System, a vital institution for education in Liberia.
