Citizens of over eight towns and villages in Jorquelleh District# 2 in Bong County –Liberia are calling on reinstated Superintendent Esther Nyamah Walker to refund over sixty seven thousand (67) Liberian Dollars allegedly collected from them by her in 2014.
According to the aggrieved Citizens, in collaboration with the current Liberia’s Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor, Walker collected about six hundred LD from underprivileged women in the name of giving them loans.
Lately in 2017, others women groups also accused the reinstated Superintendent Walker for the huge collection of finances from struggling farmers in Bong Mines and several parts of the County.
“We were told by Madam Walker and VP Taylor that former Central Bank Governor Dr. Joseph Mills Jones was going to give us loan to sell in order to pay our children school fees, but we have realized that it was strategy to collect our money and our votes, the citizens added.”
The some of the aggrieved citizens explained that the superintendent took over sixty seven thousand Liberian Dollars to establish a loan program to empower the less-fortunate women in the district.
Mary Alfred, James Gbai and Lorpu Gbai maintained that Madam Walker took over six hundred fifty Liberian dollars each from over forty seven persons in district #2 including themselves.
They said, efforts have been made to retrieve their cash, but to no avail as she keeps switching off her phone and turning down series of planned meetings and engagements.
“We are going to sue this reinstated Superintendent, if she and her political mother Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor refuse to give our money back, they noted.”
They citizens wondered why Madam Walker will treat them in such a manner describing the behavior as ugly.
