President George Weah of Liberia has sacked Mososka Fallah, the director-general of the Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL), over his handling of coronavirus testing.
Fallah was withdrawn from his post for “breaches in the health and administrative protocols that guide the issuance of Covid-19 test results,” Weah’s office said in a statement.
The decision was made on the recommendation of a committee set up to investigate the matter.
The exact nature of allegations against Fallah was not revealed, but Weah promised to publish the committee report at a later date.
Fallah’s sack comes just two weeks after the special Investigative committee submitted it report.
Meanwhile, Dr. Patrick N. Kpanyen, Deputy Director-General for Administration at NPHIL, will continue to act as Director-General pending further action.
