MIA Dismisses Bong County Culture Director

MONROVIA, September 7 (LINA) -The Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) has announced the dismissal of Mr. Joko Kuyon, Director of Culture for Bong County.

According to a dismissal letter dated September 6 under the signature of Deputy Internal Affairs Minister for Administration Varney A. Sirleaf, Director Kuyon was dismissed for acts incompatible with his post.

The letter stated that the action by the Ministry followed findings of an investigation commissioned by Internal Affairs Minister Dr. Henrique F. Tokpa, which found Mr. Kuyon liable for acts which run counter to local cultural practices.

According to a MIA press release, the Ministry has also suspended Jorquelleh District Paramount Chief Mary Larteh, pending full conclusion of an ongoing investigation.

The Internal Affairs Ministry said its action against the two local government officers should send a clear message of its zero tolerance against violators of the law, the release concluded.
