Two To Testify In Gbarpolu Projects Case

By Emmanuel Mondaye, LINA Gbarpolu County Correspondent

BOPOLU CITY, March 27 (LINA) - EcoBank Vai Town Branch Manager, Robert Kerto, and County Resident Engineer, Aaron Joboe, will Friday, March 28, testify in the US$284,000 abandoned county projects case currently underway at the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit Court in Gbarpolu County.

Last Tuesday, March 25, Presiding Judge George Wiles ordered that the two additional witnesses testify in the case involving Gbarpolu County Authorities and the Universal Construction Company (UCS).

The appearance of Mr. Kerto comes in the wake of an earlier testimony made in court by the UCS Operations Manager, Mr. Jallah Mends-Cole that he took a loan of US$30,000.00 from Eco-Bank Liberia Limited which he infused into the county’s projects.

Mr. Kerto is expected to give a breakdown of what he knows about the financial transaction entered into between the UCS Operations Manager and EcoBank Liberia limited, according to the Liberia News Agency.

For his part, Mr. Aaron Joboe, Gbarpolu County Resident Engineer, is to testify about what he knows about the abandoned county projects as he was the government representative monitoring the work at both the Bopolu and Gbarma project sites before it came to a standstill.

The UCS was to build to completion the Bopolu Presidential Guest House, Palaver Hut, Generator House, Water Tower and Water Well and the Gbarma Administration Building, which it began, but did not complete as per the agreement entered into with the government.
