OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE OF CORRUPTION SURROUNDING SAMORA WOLOKOLLIE – JOHN MORLU

Date:

MONROVIA, LIBERIA – In a recent radio interview, the former Auditor General, John Morlu, voiced his concerns over the appointments made by President George Manneh Weah shortly before the end of his tenure. Morlu undeniably sees these appointments as a distraction tactic employed by President Weah to divert attention away from critical matters.

While addressing these appointments on Spoon FM Radio, Morlu specifically emphasized the questionable nature of the appointment of Samora P.Z. Wolokollie, citing overwhelming evidence of corruption surrounding Wolokollie.

According to Morlu, although the appointment of the Justice Minister at the Supreme Court is legal, the same legal provisions that allow President Weah to appoint also grant Vice President Boakai the power to dismiss appointees. This highlights the need for a focus on establishing a functioning government rather than allowing such distractions from President Weah.

Moreover, Morlu revealed that during his tenure as the head of the General Auditing Commission, he had the opportunity to hire Wolokollie but ultimately chose not to due to allegations of corruption. He claimed that even if Wolokollie had passed the necessary tests, he would not have been employed due to these corruption allegations. Morlu further alleged that Wolokollie had been involved in a theft case with Americans and had been unable to account for funds at USAID. As a result, Morlu advised Wolokollie to consider the potential consequences of accepting the appointment, warning that it may ultimately lead to his dismissal.
