Employees claim reprisal at Commission on Disabilities

Two senior staff of the National Commission on Disabilities (NCD) in Oldest Congo Town claim they have been targeted since the return of three key administrators of the Commission.

Ms. Josephine Williams Geegbae, Head of Sign Language, and Mr. Michael Nagbe, Administrative Assistant, alleged that when they were serving as acting caretakers for the entity upon mandate from President George Manneh Weah, all of their bosses, including Executive Director Rev. Fallah Boima, Deputy Director for Technical Services, Joshua Bull and Operations Administrator (not named) reported to work many days at the NCD in violation of the President’s directive.

They further claim that their bosses subsequently removed from them their respective positions upon their return without receiving official communications transferring them to other departments in keeping with guidelines of the Civil Service Agency.

“We are just floating around here without anything to do and our colleagues are making fun of us simply because we did the right thing while serving as acting heads of the institution”.

The affected employees crave President George Manneh Weah’s intervention in ensuring that they are reinstated because, according to them, they did nothing wrong that would necessitate the action allegedly taken against them by their bosses.

They indicated that also affected was the entity’s Procurement Officer Moses Tarnue. But Mr. Tarnue declines to comment on the matter. On April 9, 2018 Executive Director Rev. Fallah Boima took Human Resource Personnel Ms. Hannah J. Watson to the police for being possession of an alleged secret recording in which it is said that Rev. Boima had allegedly threatened to get at certain staff of the entity.

Police investigation into the complaint continues while Rev. Fallah Boima said that he could not comment on the matter because it was being investigated by the Police.

When this paper contacted Mr. Joshua C. Bull in Oldest Congo Town he was out of office, but a close associate to his office denied the information, terming same as baseless.
