The long-awaited cabinet reshuffle will soon take place with credible and impeccable sources within the Executive Mansion confirming an imminent shakeup soon.
The sources who prefer strict anonymity for fear of losing their job on the basis of a “breach of confidentiality,” said the reshuffle could affect major Ministries and agencies across the government.
According to them, some top and junior officials within the CDC led administration will be replaced with new faces who will work with President George M. Weah until 2023.
The source said agencies and Ministries like the Ministry of Transport, NaSSCORP, NPA, Ministry of Youths and Sports, Ministry of Gender, National Investment Commission, Ministry of Information, LPRC, RIA, Ministry of Public Works, and the Ministry of Internal Affairs could be among areas that will be greatly affected by the shakeup.
One of the sources hinted that President Weah may replace Mr. Dewitt vonBallmoos, the current Boss at NASSCORP with Bill Tweahway, Managing Director at the NPA.
The source also indicated that Foreign Missions including the Liberian embassy assigned in Germany and Eqypt will also be affected by the reshuffle.
“After reviewing the performance reports from some of his officials, President Weah has realized that majority of them didn’t perform to his expectations and thus causing serious embarrassment for his government.
“He wants to see results. He wants the Liberian people to feel the impact of the change that they voted for. President Weah wants to hire a new team of individuals who can help him deliver all of his promises to the Liberian people,” he said.
The source did not however state the specific date that the reshuffle will take place.
On January 25, 2020, President Weah challenged his officials to pay more attention to their work. He threatened to dismiss any minister or official of government who fails to perform.
Addressing the cabinet during their first sitting on Thursday, President Weah reminded members of his cabinet that the year 2021 is a year of “performance, commitment, and diligence,” urging all cabinet members to strictly execute his agenda.
Addressing his ministers at the meeting on Thursday, Dr. Weah warned that there will be “zero tolerance for non-performing” cabinet members and other government officials.
“This year and onwards, you must implement my agenda to stay on,” President Weah warns.
