LWSC Denies Cinta Misapplication Claims

By Richard Baysah

KAKATA, Jan 18 (LINA) - Citizens of Cinta Township in Gibi District, upper Margibi County, are accusing the management of the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) of misapplying money intended to construct a water system in their township.

The citizens told the Liberia News Agency during the week that since the approval of US$170,000 for the water project, nothing has been done by the LWSC management to begin work.

They said all efforts to make the LWSC management release the money for the project have also proved futile.

The Commissioner of Cinta Township, William Julye, said funding for the township water project was allocated in the 2012- 2013 County Development Fund drawn from the National Budget.

Commissioner Julye said the LWSC Management met with him in July 2013 and confirmed receipt of the amount, which was followed by an assessment visit to the township, but that since then nothing has been done.

When contacted by the Liberia News Agency on Friday, LWSC Managing Director Charles Allen denied the allegation that the money had been misappropriated.

He said the US$170,000 allocated for the project is still in the Corporation’s coffers and has not been used as claimed by Commissioner of Julye.

Mr. Allen said it is the Public Procurement and Concession Commission (PPCC) that is the hold- up to the commencement of the water project.

He indicated that every document pertaining to the water project is in the possession of the PPCC and that the Commission is yet to make them available to LWSC for implementation of the water project.
