Some aggrieved employees of the General Services Agency (GSA) yesterday held their Director General Pearine Davis-Parkinson hostage in the Agency's compound demanding her to resign her post.
The spokesman of GSA Workers Association, Aaron Kollie alleged that Madam Davis- Parkinson has created a bad labor practice scheme at the GSA and is always usurping her power to the extent that in various departments employees are unable to perform their duties with ease.
According to Kollie, since Madam Davis-Parkinson took over as Director General, corruption has been the order of the day because all government properties in the Agency are being controlled by her narrowing it down to her spending some of US$7,600 for her vehicle which is in the garage and used US$200 for food daily, while some of the employees are starving.
According to an insider, the confusion is mainly based on a contract intended for residents of Bomi County which some of the employees have requested the DG to give them. The Association's spokesperson in his narrative buttressed the information by admitting that Madam Davis-Parkinson indeed refused to give a contract designed for residents of Bomi County to the employees of the Agency putting it to her having, "Selfish and political interest in the country."
"We will continue to demonstrate in the main compound of the GSA until Madam Davis- Parkinson resigns because we are tired with her administration," the aggrieved employees said.
Meanwhile, Madam Davis-Parkinson denied all allegations levied against her and told journalists that at no time will she encourage corruption in the Agency. Clarifying the project in Bomi County, the GSA Director General said it is meant to help the unskilled laborers to benefit from the project and not for the employees of the Agency.
