Liberian President George Weah has come under fire a year ahead of the presidential election for his inadequate response to the indictment of three senior officials for alleged corruption and embezzlement by the country’s major US ally.


The US administration threw a spanner in the works of Liberian politics by announcing in August sanctions against the man who serves as President Weah’s chief of staff and two other men, whom it accuses of wrongdoing.


The charges highlight the endemic corruption that plagues the poor West African country, ranked 136th out of 180 by the anti-corruption NGO Transparency International in its 2021 report.
