Ms. Matilda Wokie Parker, ex-Liberia’s National Port Authority managing director

West Africa — The former managing director of the Liberia’s National Port Authority (NPA), Ms. Matilda Wokie Parker, has denied Globe Afrique’s investigative report that she owes any property or bought any property in the US state of Florida since becoming managing director.

On August 28, 2017, Globe Afrique’s research and analysis unit published a sales document and a story, captioned: “African Officials accused of corruption buying properties in the US.”  In the story, it was reported that Ms. Parker, who is under investigation for corruption charges in Liberia owed assets in the United States, including a house in Florida and a plot of land recently purchased in Leon County, Florida.

Ms. Parker, in a communication sent on her behalf by one Mr. George Kennedy, maintains that a home in Florida and a plot of land which documentation was published by Globe Afrique’s research and analysis has no connection to her, adding, “The property belongs to another lady named Matilda Parker.”
