Cape Mount Supt. Orders Audit Of Ebola Funds

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent 

ROBERTSPORT, September 26 (LINA) - Grand Cape Mount County Superintendent, Imam Mohammed A. Paasewe, has constituted a four-man team to conduct an audit of funds received for the fight against the Ebola virus.

He said in August, the County Health Team (CHT) received over L$9 million from the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare to enhance its capacity to contain the spread of Ebola.

Superintendent Paasewe made the disclosure at a press conference he hosted on Thursday in Garwula District.

He said of the amount over L$4million has already been spent, and that there was need to conduct an audit to know how the first portion of the fund was expended.

Paasewe, who is also Chairman of the County Ebola Task Force, said he decided to constitute the audit team due to an outcry from the civil society, health workers, student groups and other citizens calling for his dismissal as chairman of the Task Force and the head of the county health team, Dr. Julius Garbo.

Chairman Paasewe said his administration will not condone any form of corruption that has the propensity to hamper the fight against the Ebola virus in the county.

He has mandated the audit team to submit its finding to the Task Force on Wednesday, October 1, 2014, according to the Liberia News Agency correspondent in the county.

On the allegation of his involvement in misapplying Ebola funds, Chairman Paaswe said the Ministry of Internal Affairs has distributed US$2,395 to the 14 members of the county task force as operational fund for the purchase of scratch cards and transportation.

He also explained that in September, he received US$5,000 from an American businessman as contribution towards the fight against the spread of the virus in the county.

According to Chairman Paasewe, half of this amount has been distributed among the task forces of Commonwealth, Garwula, Porkpa, Gola Konneh and Tewor Districts.
