Gbarnga, Bong County – The Acting Chairman of the Council of Patriots and a Senatorial hopeful of Bong County, Menipakei Dumoe has accused the 54th National Legislature Deputy Speaker, Prince K. Moye of eating US$508,000 from the account of the Cuttington University.
Recently, some aggrieved workers of Cuttington University under the banner “Concerned Workers” staged a day-long go-slow in demand of salary arrears owed by the institution, and threatened to continue if the administration refuses to adhere to the request. Cuttington University, a private University located in Suakoko, Bong County, founded 1889 as Cuttington College by the Episcopal Church of the United States (ECUSA) and it is the oldest private, co-educational, four-year, degree-granting institution in sub-Saharan Africa.
According to the aggrieved workers, the University Administration has not paid them since February of this year, with the workers vowing if the administration doesn’t pay their salaries there will be no lesson, and they will continue the protest until their salaries are given. Speaking in an interview with media gurus in Gbarnga, Bong County on September 26, 2020, Dumoe said the administration of Cuttington University is now facing serious financial problems because Deputy Speaker Moye and Senator Dr. Henrique Flomo Tokpa administration mismanaged funding that was given to the University by the government.
“Prince Moye cannot account for $508,000 that he oversaw while in top financial management at CU. These men are the reason ‘bitter balls seller’s children cannot attend Cuttington University,” Mr. Dumoe stressed. According to Dumoe, he has an audit document from the General Auditing Commission that outlined the Cuttington University corruption saga connecting Moye to mismanaging the said amount given by the government.
The Bong County Independent Senatorial 2020 candidate further alleged that Moye, while the head of Ways Means and Finance at the House of Representatives he stole millions of Dollars, more and no amount of endorsement will cover the crime that he (Moye) has committed in the Country.
“I have an audit Documents in my possession on Moye from Cuttington and National Legislature where he served a top position and there was mismanagement of funding. But we will release these documents during the heat of the 2020 Senatorial election campaign in Bong County, where our people will be aware of Moye and his father Sen. Tokpa evil because they will be brought to light. Our people need to know these things,” Mr. Dumoe said. Meanwhile, Dumoe has called on citizens of the County to reject Moye at the 2020 senatorial ballot box, adding we cannot give Bong to Father and Son as senators.
He said Moye is serving a top position but being silent and his Senatorial quest has undermined the interest of the people and the Development of Bong County.
