Montserrado County Superintendent Grace Tee Kpaan has reportedly resigned her post amidst her indefinite suspension by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.
The Minister of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism, Lewis G. Brown made the disclosure on Thursday in a weekly press briefing, adding that Superintendent Kpaan had tendered in her resignation to the President.
Madam Kpaan was held in contempt by the House of Representatives recently and sentenced for 72 hours at the Monrovia Central Prison, but she was prevented from serving her term by former Monrovia Acting Mayor Mary T. Broh.
Members of the House had invited Madam Kpaan to provide clarity on the usage of the Montseraado's development fund. Her summon by the House followed accusations and counter-accusations between her Montserrado County District 16 Representative Edward Forh in the application of the development fund.
But the former Superintendent claimed Representative Forh attempted coercing her to misapply the fund, producing a secret recording of the lawmaker's voice on tape saying "...you eat, I eat, and the Minister of Internal Affairs eat." Forh has admitted that the voice on the tape is his, but he described it as mere "stupid joke."
