LWSC Deputy MD denies corruption claims
Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) Deputy Managing Director Moseray Momoh is denying media report that he was dismissed from the corporation due to alleged corruption while working at LWSC.
He told a press conference on Thursday that a local daily here is alleging that he was dismissed in 2015 from the corporation due to allegation of corruption. According to Mr. Momoh, he served as procurement expert/ Urban Water Supply and Sanitation, but he allegedly resigned from the LWSC as procurement and contract management expert in July 2015 for the African Development Bank project under title ‘Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Project (UWSP).
He claims that his resignation was due to his new job at the United Development Program (UNDP) which he said was unarguably higher than his previous job at LWSC.
The Deputy MD argues that he was neither a party nor an owner of any company that participated in any bidding process as insinuated by the local daily.
He says in accordance with the rule and guideline of the African Development Bank (AfDB) and in line with Public Procurement Concession Commission (PPCC), he provided an expert advice to the technical team but the technical team didn’t following both AfDB guideline and the PPCC Act.
Mr. Momoh concludes that as a result of the technical team’s alleged failure to heed to his advice, the contract was reportedly awarded to an unqualified contractor which was later terminated.
