Liberia: Mont. Supt. Takes Issue With Caucus

Montserrado County Superintendent, Grace Kpaan says that she is forced to react to allegations made by the Monterrado Legislative Caucus concerning scholarships for students throughout the county as well as some other issues that she couldn't respond to while out of the country.

On allegations concerning scholarships that the Montserrado Caucus accused Superintendent Kpaan's official check of bouncing when monies were to be retrieved for scholarships at the Central Bank, the Montserrado Superintendent said that the checks never bounced but 'died a natural death'.

Superintendent Kpaan said that there were many irregularities in the listings that came to her office of students that were to qualify for the scholarships and that she would not sign any voucher that she does not read and understand. She continued that in the listing and submission of the listing of scholarship awardees the laws were not followed.

She stated further that maybe some lawmakers were looking for their Christmas and thought that they could do that at the expanse of the poor people in the county. She added that it seemed eccentric that one lawmaker sent over 200 students to another lawmaker's school.
