President Weah cuts operational cost of public agencies to £3,000
Just days into his presidency, former footballer George Weah has begun making changes to the way Liberia’s government is run.
Mr Weah has ordered all “autonomous agencies and public corporations of the government” to keep their operational expenses below $3,000 (£2,100).
Any which wish to exceed the budget, “must seek approval from the Office of the President”, a statement on the Executive Mansion’s website declared.
It also allowed the relevant people in the agencies and corporations to sign off all “legitimate salaries and other benefits”.
Mr Weah took office on Monday with a vow to crack down on corruption.
