Is Corruption Winning in Liberia?
When President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf became president, she declared corruption “public enemy number one” and promised to run corruption out of the Liberian society. Five (5) years on, corruption appears more powerful than before. For example, every audit report released by the General Auditing Commission will always point out some level of misappropriation. Recently, the Ministries of Education, Finance, and Health are in the local media for the same misappropriation. Is President Sirleaf failing in her fight against corruption or are her soldiers (the ministers) stabbing her in the back. Is corruption winning the war in Liberia?
