Gongloe Vows to Audit Weah’s Government

Presidential hopeful Cllr. Tiawon Gongloe, has vowed to audit and prosecute George Weah’s government for corruption when elected president.

Speaking in a telephone interview with Radio Gbarnga from the USA on Monday, Cllr. Gongloe said there is endemic corruption in the three branches of the Liberian Government under the regime of the former soccer Legend.

He said the treasury of Liberia is going into the pockets of government officials, who he described as a greedy minority.

“They are focused on taking more home for themselves and leaving the masses in abject poverty. Corruption has taken over the Nation and the hope of the Liberian people has been dashed” he said.

“My Presidency will ensure justice for the Country and its people. I will bring all of them to justice, they will pay for every damage caused”

He expressed concerns over the erection of condominiums by President George Weah and his cabinet ministers just one year after his election; while questioning the sources of the money they are using to build the mansions.

Asked about how his government will tackle corruption when elected, the former Liberia National Bar Association President said he and his cabinet ministers’ access declarations, salaries, and benefits will be made public and published on the internet.

He said his government will prosecute and dismiss any government official that will be found guilty of corruption; thus promising to resign, if caught in the web of corruption.

Cllr. Gongloe assured that 50 percent of his cabinet ministers will be women; while describing Liberian women as honest.
