Liberia: Four Lebanese Businessmen Fined for 'Dirty Bathrooms'

The Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) has fined four Lebanese businessmen for unsanitary condition of their toilets. The MCC through the Acting City Mayor of Monrovia, Madam Mary Broh yesterday fined four Lebanese Businessmen US$1,000 each for keeping their toilets dirty.

The Lebanese businessmen are doing their businesses at the Caldwell Junction on the Bushrod Island. Prior to her action against the businessmen, Madam Broh said she fined the Lebanese businessmen because their bathrooms are not in good use at their business sites.

The Acting City Mayor stressed the cleanliness of the city adding that the city needs to be clean at all times and that cleaning Monrovia and its environs is the business of everyone who lives in the country.

At the same time, the owner of Shop N Save Hardware Store at the Caldwell Junction, Mr. Ravi Mkuney has taken serious exception to the fine imposed on his Management.

He said the fine imposed in the tone of US$1,000 was imposed without any justifiable or concrete reason. According to him, Madam Broh fined his management because of toilet facility but intimated that his bathroom is effective and clean.

"My commode is always clean but Broh contended that my commode is not clean and so she decided to fine the Management US$1,000, and I want to say that the manner in which Broh demanded the money is not fair," Mr. Mkuney said.
