US Embassy Expresses Concern Over Reported Misuse of U.S. Government Funding

MONROVIA-The United States Mission to Liberia has expressed serious concerns about the report in the February 2, 2023 edition of the FrontPage Africa Newspaper report regarding the misuse of funds provided by the United States Government to support health care for the people of Margibi County.

A release from the US Embassy said, “We have a special responsibility to ensure that money provided by United States taxpayers for the benefit of the people of Liberia, including the people of Margibi, is used for its intended purpose.”

The US Embassy commended the investigative journalism that brought the story of the misuse of the money to light.

They want swift action by the Ministry of Health to make immediate changes while investigating the matter.

“The USAID Mission to Liberia will decide whether to retain Margibi as part of USAID’s government-to-government agreement pending a transparent investigation and associated actions to hold accountable anyone involved in the misuse of any U.S. government funds,” the statement said.
