Group photo with President Sirlaef, Commissioners of LACC and heads of the National LegislaturePresident Sirleaf Announces at Assets Declaration Training President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has called upon the Legislature and the Judiciary to respect the Code of Conduct by requiring all officials of their Branches to issue their Declaration of Assets, declaring, “This is the law”.“I call on all those concerned to declare their assets to ensure that they are in full compliance by the 28th of July 2017, the deadline established by the LACC,” the President announced.She was speaking last Friday during the Assets Declaration Training held in Monrovia under the sponsorship of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) and its partners, according to an Executive Mansion release.As we come together today, we reconfirm to our nation and to our development partners, our commitment to comply with this legal provision of the Code of Conduct in the interest of good governance and the fight against corruption,” added President Sirleaf. “Remove the Perception, Declare Your Assets”.She further called upon Presidential aspirants and Presidential appointees and other public officials, particularly those subject to false and nefarious accusations, to consider public disclosure of their Declaration of Assets and Liabilities.President Sirleaf said Liberia is not bereft of laws, policies and strategies that meet international standards, noting that the declaration of assets is just one of many. She said the problem is that we give little respect to the enforcement of these laws and the implementation of related policies and programs. “I trust that this sensitizing gathering will result in a change in attitude and action on the part of those responsible to comply with or to enforce Asset Declaration,” President Sirleaf admonished.She thanked the Commission for organizing the event aimed at bringing attention to a fundamental requirement of accountability in public service. President Sirleaf said although the Declaration of Assets and Liabilities is new to Liberia, she said she was proud that similar to many other financial management instruments, this has been introduced by her Government.President Sirleaf recalled that in 2012, the Executive Order on Asset Declaration was imposed as a requirement for all officials of the Executive Branch of Government. In June 2014 the Legislature extended this requirement for all three Branches of Government thereby demanding accountability from all those managing or benefiting from public resources.“It has been three years since members of the LACC were commissioned into office, five years since we issued the Executive Order on Asset Declaration, and three years since the Code of Conduct went into effect,” the President intoned.President Sirleaf challenged the LACC that more has been and is expected of the entity. “Investigation of Asset Declarations is called for in Section 10.2 of the Code. This could be done a on random basis, focusing particularly on those who have managed or benefited from significant public resource,” she noted.The President also expressed the need for more guidance on implementation of the Code with emphasis on: “Who are those to declare? To whom should the Declaration be made? Which entities are the rightful custodians of the Declaration? When is the deadline for Declaration? What are the penalties for failure to declare? The Code of Conduct does not respond to these issues so LACC should have assumed this responsibility”.She intimated that Liberians should be deeply saddened when we read what is said about the integrity of our country but she was quick to add that such statements and reports are based on perceptions fueled by local reporting. However, perceptions unchallenged or unchanged become reality over time, she warned.“This is why, although not required by the Code of Conduct and with prejudice to laws, which protect the confidentiality of personal financial information, I made the decision to release to the public my Declaration of Assets and Liabilities, adding to that, my Personal Income Tax Returns, a filing done more in respect of personal discipline than requirement by the LRA,” she said confidently.In separate remarks, House Speaker, J. Emmanuel Nuquay and Senate Pro-Tempore Armah Zulu Jallah pledged to encourage their colleagues in the Legislature as well as staffers to declare their assets to those being trained as workers of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission. They acknowledged that the issue of the assets declaration was not anything strange and added that the passage of the bill was in the best interest of the country and its people.In her remarks, United States Ambassador to Liberia, Christine Elder, said the US Government through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) remains committed to the training of participants in asset declaration. She commended President Sirleaf for leading the way in creating the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission as a means of leading by example in order to bring transparency and accountability into the governance processes of Liberia.The World Bank-Liberia Country Manager, Larisa Leshehenko said the World Bank welcomes the government’s renewed interest and commitment in pursuing the implementation of the Asset Declaration System training that will equip the relevant staff responsible for its administration.Earlier, Cllr. James N. Verdier, Chairman of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission welcomed stakeholders and participants to the one-day training session.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Crested Cranes players celebrate on of the goals against Swaziland on Wednesday (photo by FUFA media)COSAFA Women’s Championship 2018Swaziland 3-4 Uganda Port Elizabeth, South Africa Wednesday, 12-08-2018 The Uganda Crested Cranes got off to a winning start at the ongoing COSAFA Women’s Championships in South Africa.Faridah Bulega’s charges defeated Swaziland 3-4 in a game that had little to write home about in terms of defending.Hasifa Nassuuna struck a brace while Norah Alupo and Resty Nanziri scored a goal each to guide Uganda past Swaziland in the game played at the Isaac Wolfson Stadium in Port Elizabeth.Swaziland got all their goals in the second half, struck through Celiwe Thandazile Nkambule, Tenanile Sandiswa Mgcamphalala and Cebile Shongwe.Nassuuna who had fitness issues going into the game, opened the scoring after just two minutes, capitalizing on a mistake by Swaziland defender, Mwazi Dube to slot home and give Uganda a dream start.Uganda kept surging forward and on the half hour mark, Alupo doubled the guest’s lead tapping home from close range a Zainah Namuleme cut-back.With the game destined for the mandatory halftime break, Nanziri who had hit the woodwork earlier stretched Uganda’s lead scoring the third. It was her first goal in national team colors coming on her debut.In the second half, Swaziland scored two quick goals through Tenanile Ngcamphalala and Celiwe Nkambule to come within a goal of leveling matters.However with 10 minutes to play, 2016 Woman Elite league MVP-Nassuna had other ideas, slotting home her second of the day and Cranes fourth via a penalty kick after Tracy Jones Akiror was brought down in the area by Mwazi.Despite the two goal deficit, Swaziland never lost hope and found their third in the 89th minute with Cebile Shongwe easily finishing past Ruth Aturo off a counter attack to create a tense finish to the game.Bulega’s side manage to hold onto a famous victory that sees them go top of group C after one game.The other group C game will see Namibia and Zimbabwe square off on Thursday.The Crested Cranes next game will be against Namibia on Saturday afternoon.Comments Tags: 2018 COSAFA Women’s championshipcrested cranesfaridah bulegaHassifah Nassuna
Donegal T.D. Joe McHugh has secured €2.4million investment in former National Asset Management Agency (Nama) properties in Ramelton, Co Donegal under the Rebuilding Ireland programme.When complete, the scheme at Radharc an Chuain will include 20 new homes made up of 15 three bedroom houses and five four bedroom houses.Mr McHugh said: “The houses will become quality homes for families and other people in need in Co Donegal. “A €2.4million euro spend on social housing in the community of Ramelton is a significant investment but also excellent value for money when it can help to open the doors of 20 new homes.“This Government is acutely aware of the need to do more on the housing front but every small scale investment of this nature is making a crucial difference.“I’m in Ramelton regularly and I look forward to seeing these homes being lived in and to hearing about the new life that it will breathe into the local community.”The properties which will complete the Radharc an Chuain estate in Ramelton will be used by Donegal County Council for social housing. They were formerly part of loan books purchased by the National Asset Management Agency (Nama). The 20 houses were at various stages of development but have been weather proofed for several years.Substantial improvement works are now being planned and it is hoped the properties will be ready to accommodate families by early next year.Minister McHugh added: “I have spoken to Eoghan Murphy, Minister for Housing, Local Government and Planning about the project and I understand that Donegal County Council is being written to this week to confirm the arrangement.”The redevelopment will be carried out through the Local Authority Construction Programme under Rebuilding Ireland.
