EJS Returns More Travel Money
(SomaliNet) Liberia’s President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, has surprised many when she returned a balance of $19,000 to Liberia’s treasury. This was part of her travel allowance on trips outside Liberia.
According to Cyrus Badio, Liberia’s Presidential Press Secretary, this is one of the ways that Sirleaf is using to enhance transparency and accountability.
Sirleaf also provided receipts to explain how she spent the money. She then asked other leaders to emulate her example.
