Liberia: 'I Didn't Receive Money'

Contrary to reports by this paper that Internal Affairs Minister Blamo Nelson received U$50,000 for renovation for the ministry, the minister has clarified that he did not receive the amount.

Minister Nelson clarified that it was rather the superintendents who received U$50,000.00 each for county development projects.

The information comes at the time when members of the House of Representative are querying Montserrado County superintendent Grace Kpaan to account for U$ 50,000.00 she allegedly used.
