United States President Joe Biden

The United States Mission to Liberia has expressed serious concerns about the report in the February 2, 2023 edition of Frontpage Africa Newspaper regarding the misuse of funds provided by the United States Government to support health care for the people of Margibi County.

In a statement issued today by the United States Embassy accredited near Monrovia said, ‘We have a special responsibility to ensure that money provided by United States taxpayers for the benefit of the people of Liberia, including the people of Margibi, is used for its intended purpose’, the statement continued.

‘We commend the investigative journalism that brought this story to light and appreciate the swift action by the Ministry of Health to make immediate changes while investigating the matter.

The USAID Mission to Liberia will decide whether to retain Margibi as part of USAID’s government to-government agreement pending a transparent investigation and associated actions to hold accountable anyone involved in the misuse of any U.S. government funds.
