Cabinet Adopts Austerity Measures; Reduces Ministers, Heads of Autonomous Agencies’ Salaries

Monrovia, Liberia: The Cabinet, in its second crucial sitting has adopted several measures intended to enhance the government’s Pro-Poor Agenda.

The measures include the reduction or standardization of salaries for ministers of government and heads of autonomous agencies.

The decision was reached on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 during the Cabinet Second Session at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and chaired by President George Manneh Weah.

Cabinet also took a number austerity measures aimed at the standardization of salaries across government, especially within the Executive Branch of Government.

The Cabinet endorsed that: “No longer will any official of government including heads of autonomous agencies make $10,000.00USD or $15,000.00USD respectively.

Cabinet resolved that heads of public corporations or autonomous agencies will make not more than $7,800USD as salary. Cabinet also took a decision for a 10% salary reduction across the board for cabinet ministers - mainly those at the highest level of the executive. 

This resolved that this reduction across the board will only affect approximately 4,140 employees; including civil servants that make above 1,000 USD. The decision by Cabinet will take effect in the pending 2018/2019 fiscal budget.

Meanwhile, Cabinet has exhaustively discussed the 2018/19 fiscal budget with a view of identifying means to support national development that will impact the lives of the poor people and to ensure that money is not wasted.

President Weah to Re-Roof All Homes in Gibraltar Community

Monrovia, Liberia: President George Manneh Weah has announced plans to transform Gibraltar, in Clara Town on Bushrod Island; commencing with the re-roofing of all the homes in order to spare inhabitants of impending embarrassment in the wake of the fast approaching rainy season.
Most of the homes in the community have been in the state of dilapidation as a result of being built over the past three or four decades.

Speaking Monday, April 23, 2018 during a visit to the Gibraltar Community, President Weah disclosed that he would embark on the re-roofing all the homes in the area. The Liberian Leader told residents of the community that he still has special love in his heart for them and the community. This is incensed by the fact that he has been working with them long before his election as President of Liberia.

Though the President said he has been harboring plans to give the community a facelift, the raining season has reinforced the decision to undertake the project. He added that residents will be relocated for five months to allow reconditioning of their homes. Read more...

In Africa, presidential term limits are working

This month, Julius Maada Bio was sworn in as president of Sierra Leone, replacing the incumbent Ernest Bai Koroma, who had abided by the country’s two-term limit. In January, the incumbent president of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, became the first president in her country’s history to adhere to term limits, also stepping aside after finishing her second term.

Are these part of a broader trend? World news regularly features headlines about African power grabs and “constitutional coups.” But according to new research, most African leaders abide by their constitutional term limits. Read more...

THE SECRET HAND BEHIND WEST AFRICA’S REGIME CHANGES

Armed with AK-47s, the rebels sneaked into Liberia on Christmas Eve in 1989 to overthrow the country’s President Samuel Doe. As the ensuing civil war escalated, ultimately killing 400,000 people, the world’s attention turned to rebel leader Charles Taylor, and Libya, which had trained his men. But the man whom diplomats and experts hold responsible for the invasion was watching calmly from Yamoussoukro. At 84, Ivory Coast President Félix Houphouët-Boigny’s appetite for regime change hadn’t waned.

West Africa’s longest-serving leader, Houphouët-Boigny led Ivory Coast from its independence in 1960 till his death in 1993, turning the former French colony into a rare pillar of economic success and stability. An ally of the West during the Cold War, Houphouët-Boigny had a Peace Prize instituted in his name by UNESCO in 1990. But there was a more manipulative side to the man popularly known as Papa Houphouët or Le Vieux (The Old One), say experts and diplomats who worked with him. Read more...
