The Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) honorably retires 15 employees following long years of public service to the corporation, government and people of Liberia.
Those retired include Daniel D. Doe, Daniel Glay, Oretha Kollie, Joseph Kumbey, George Moore, Moses Sonkaley, Ms. Theresa F. Hills, Harris Gaye, Samuel Essie and Patrick Zeon, among others.The honorees received retirement packages in line with LWSC’s regulations and the Civil Service Agency (CSA) Pension Law.
Speaking during a brief ceremony at the Sewage Plant in Fiamah, LWSC Managing Director Duannah A. Kamara, lauds the retirees for their long and distinguished services.
He says when one enters an institution at an early age, serves well, honestly and diligently and at the end is retired honorably, and it must be considered a great day and a step in the right direction for others to emulate.
Director Kamara also hails the honorees for being a great help to the corporation and reminds them that from time to time they would be called upon for advice and guidance.
“Retirement does mean that it is the end of your life; you will continue to be an asset to the facility and the empowerment of youth with the knowledge you acquired at LWSC,” he continues.
Deputy Managing Director for Technical Services Dan Sayee, describes the day as interesting because it brought mixed emotions.“I have interacted with every one of you. The emotion that I won’t see you again as often as I saw you over the last few months is something to celebrate and reflect on”, he adds.
The LWSC deputy boss notes that life is such that often one has to shut one door in one’s life and open another. “Let me express my profound gratitude to you for the dedicated and persevering service you have rendered to this country. We still believe that there is still a lot more capabilities in you. I urge you to continue sharing your experience and wisdom that will move the corporation forward. You are still our valuable human resource,” Sayee assures.
He urges employees of the corporation to not look at personal gains, but the greater good of the entity and Liberia.Responding on behalf of his colleagues, Daniel Doe thanks the management and staff for the opportunity to serve the country and cautions young employees to emulate examples of the older ones in performing their duty with diligence.
