Big Shakeup/Surprises, President Sirleaf’s 2nd Term Cabinet Brings New Faces to Government

MONROVIA-  Like the pattern of all governments which usually phase out most of the cabinet members from the first term administration after an election for second term, President

Pres. Sirleaf

Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, a Harvard trained economist who is in the fight of  her political career as she faces stiff challenge in the October 11th election from the opposition party, Congress for Democratic Change, CDC, in her  bid for a second term; shakes up her cabinet and brings in new faces into her  government for the second term of her administration.

Samuel Koffi Woods, now minister of Justice, Biyan Kesseley, Bureau of Maritime Affairs, and minister of FinanceA copy of the composition of the new cabinet of the second term administration of President Sirleaf  made available to this outlet if the President wins, will bring in newcomers into government and some strange bedfellows as well. Three of the President’s cabinet ministers, namely, one time human rights advocate and former head of the head of the Catholic Justice and the Peace Commission,  Samuel Koffi Woods and  minister of Finance,  Augustine Ngafuan, all of whom serve as the face of the young generation in the Sirleaf administration will not serve in the second term. On the flipside, the second term administration of the President is bringing in controversial former officials who served earlier but were forced to let go because of impropriety, notable among some of such controversial former government officials who will be re-entering government are Harry Greaves former head of the country’s petroleum corporation, former Finance minister,  Emmanuel Shaw ,etc and  the President’s son Robert Sirleaf, who is going to head the Finance Ministry.
