As captured on camera of the Heritage Newspaper recently during the closure of a week-long women conference, which was attended by several top local and international dignitaries, including Vice President Jewel Taylor, buckets, tops and even barrels were placed under the roof of main entrance hall and the most prestigious C. Cecil Dennis Conference Hall, where the main dialogue was took place.
As observed by our reporter, who had gone for a reportorial function, the floor of the Ministry, specifically the C. Cecil Dennis Conference Hall was badly leaking during a heavy down pour of rain on the after of Thursday, thus causing casual workers to line up buckets, tops and barrels in the conference hall and the hallway.
As gathered, it normally takes casual workers at the MFA considerable bit of time wiping the floor and lining up buckets and barrels whenever it rains.
This is said to have created serious level of embarrassment at the Ministry, which is one of the most visited places in the country – with different classes of visitors trooping to the on a daily basis either on diplomatic levels or on for meetings, passport transactions and so on.
Administered by Mr. Dee-Maxwell Saah Kemayah, Sr., the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is a cabinet ministry of Liberia responsible for directing Liberia's external relations and the management of its international diplomatic missions.
Originally called the "Department of State," the Ministry assumed its current name in 1972. The first director of the ministry was Hilary Teague, who also drafted the Liberian Declaration of Independence and served in the Liberian Senate.
