Lawmakers Influence MNG Gold To Dismiss Over 30 Employees
Report reaching The Monrovia Times from Kokoyah Statutory District in Bong County says, Mining Company MNG Gold has dismissed more than thirty-two employees, most whom are securities.
According to the Report, the Company’s alleged decision to layoff the thirty-two employees was the result of a recommendation from electoral District #1 Representative Albert Haills and Senator Henry Willie Yallah.
The report says the two Lawmakers want the Company to employ members of their security firm instead of getting security from nearby communities in the area.
The dismissed employees are said to be planning a protest against the company in order to claim the attention of Bong County’s authorities.
Media investigation has established that the Community Liaison Officer of the Mining Company MNG Gold, Keith Gboe is currently dissatisfied over the action of the company to have dismissed the workers.
An official of the Company who spoke based on anonymity said it is important for the dismissed Employees’ to talk about their monthly salaries and benefits instead of asking the Company why they were dismissed.
