Without CSA Standing: Several Workers Risk Dismissal

by News Manager

MONROVIA: The Minister of Internal Affairs, Francis Sakila Nyumalin, has vowed to remove employees of the Internal Affairs Ministry who were employed without going through the Civil Service Agency (CSA) regulations.

The CSA, established in 1973 by an Act of the National Legislature to increase efficiency is also responsible for improving the human resources, service delivery, effectiveness, and efficiency in government.

It is an obligation that anyone before being employed in government ministry, agency or commission, to sit the CSA test and must pass before being eligible for employment.

The CSA is also independent from all other Ministries and Agencies of Government and serves as the central government agency responsible for managing the Civil Service which entails planning human capacity needs, recruitment and selection, training and development, performance management, and career development of civil servants.

Speaking on Monday March 11, 2024, when he officially took over the affairs of the Ministry as the Internal Affairs Minister, Mr. Nyumalin warned that his move is in good faith and should not be misinterpreted as a ‘witch-hurt.’

He stressed that more people were illegally placed on the MIA payroll in violation of the Civil Service Agency (CSA) Standing Order and Procedures.

At the same time, he warned chiefs to stop fighting a proxy war for politicians rather they should emulate the fine example of the Chief Tamba Taylor who was highly respected throughout his days as chief that even led him to be member of the erstwhile transitional government, styled then: five-man council of Liberia.

According to him, many chiefs in the country are supposed to be leading a solution effort for the peace and reconciliation in the country but, because they themselves are divided.

He, however, promised to lead an effort to unite all the chiefs in country. He used the occasion to inform the gathering that, he will recommend to the Liberian leader, Joseph Boakai, for Liberia to have a chieftaincy election in three years.

He also appealed to all Liberians to embrace and support government’s effort to establish the war and economic crime court and Asset Recovery program.

He said that these programs will bring to an end the culture of impunity in the country and also serve as deterrence to anyone.
