President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, as Chief Patron of the Liberian National Red Cross Society (LNRCS), has dissolved the Board of Directors of the organization with immediate effect.
The President has also halted the activities and operations of the current management team of the entity.
According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf took the decisions on Tuesday, March 8 “following a careful review of events unfolding at the LNRCS.”
President Sirleaf has further cited all members of the dissolved Board of Directors as well as members of the management team today to a meeting in order to look deeper into the current situation at the entity.
The LNRCS has reportedly been embroiled in a financial crisis resulting from an audit that held the secretary-general, Fayiah Tamba, for misappropriating US$1 million.
