The Joint Civil Society Anti-Corruption Initiative is demanding the accountability of five high-ranking Liberian officials who have been implicated in corrupt activities while serving in public positions. In order to pursue justice, the group organized a peaceful demonstration on Wednesday, December 6, 2023, and submitted a petition to the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission, urging them to exercise their prosecutorial authority against these individuals.
The Joint CSO Anti-Corruption Initiative specifically identified several individuals who must answer for their alleged embezzlement of state funds. These individuals include Senators Varney Sherman of Grand Cape Mount, Prince Johnson of Nimba, as well as the recently elected Margibi Senator and former Minister of State, Nathaniel McGill.
Additionally, the Initiative highlighted the former Port Managing Director, who is now the Senator-elect for Rivercess County, Bill Twehway, and Cllr. Cyrenius Cephas, the former Solicitor General, as individuals who must be held accountable for their alleged misappropriation of national resources.
