MONROVIA, LIBERIA – A storm is brewing at the Ministry of Commerce, over the alleged mishandling of funds aimed at uplifting the poor within the country. The CDC government, led by President Weah, had implemented a loan program with the noble intention of helping Liberians escape the clutches of poverty.
However, it is alleged that certain officials within the Ministry had misused these funds, causing an outcry among the public.
At the heart of this controversy stands Mawine Diggs, one of President George Weah’s trusted cabinet members.
Madam Diggs became the focal point of scrutiny and suspicion surrounding the misappropriation of funds.
To address the matter and bring justice to the situation, the incoming ruling Unity party appointed former Auditor General, John Morlu, who has been tasked with retrieving the stolen public funds in the country has put the issue on too of his list for action.
Morlu wasted no time and promptly named Minister Diggs as one of the public officials who must be held accountable for their actions.
Inside sources from the ministry reveal that there is now a frantic race against time to gather and organize the necessary documents for the impending report.
Due to the improper handling of the funds, officials are struggling to put the paperwork in order as required. This adds an additional layer of difficulty to the process of investigating and resolving the pro-poor loan mishap at the Ministry of Commerce, our sources alleged.
