-Ellen Rubbishes Media Report
By Reuben Sei Waylaun
Former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has rubbished recent media report that ‘she’s 80 years and so, she doesn’t remember anything’.
Recently the Hot Pepper newspaper reported that the former Liberian leader told agents investigating the alleged missing LRD16billion Liberian banknotes that she was 80 years and as such, she doesn’t remember anything.
But speaking with the BBC Correspondent in Liberia, Jonathan Payelay-Leh, the former Liberian chief executive said “anybody who said this needs to go and look at themselves. Do I look like somebody to say I am eighty years old and I cannot remember? You have a foolish paper here that always doing sensational things and those sensational things are not true and we are so accustomed to that. Absolutely, there is no fact to that, I am very strong, my mind is functioning well and that’s straightly propaganda and nobody should listen to that.”
Regarding the investigations surrounding the mysterious disappearance of the LRD16 billion Liberian banknotes, madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf confirmed that some investigators met her and she told them everything she did during her regime.
“Some investigators came to see me and I told them everything that I do, every decision I have made and every action I have taken isn’t by word of mouth, is by paper, is by document. Anybody who wants to know anything that I have done please go to the records at the Ministry of State, it’s written there and they will get full clarification on anything.
“Because I don’t just talk, I write anything I do. So, if somebody say I don’t have to talk, because it is written, go and read the records and if you need clarification of the record, then you can come back to me,” she said.
