MONROVIA, LIBERIA - Education Minister, Dr. Ansu Sonii, says Tuesday’s protest by Monrovia Consolidated School System (MCSS) Students has the propensity to undermine donors support to Liberia’s Education Sector.

Minister Soni said:”There was a meeting held with the MCSS Teachers recently but I cannot understand why the students still chose to protest”.

According to him, “the pay of MCSS Teachers was in process last week and that September’s salary pay will begin Wednesday, October 16, while some of the teachers who have both US and LD accounts have gotten their Liberian Dollar pay with the US Dollar component outstanding”.

Education Minister Soni, made the reaction at a Joint-Press Conference Tuesday, October15, 2019 in Monrovia, also disclosed that during the protest, two students who are not MCSS Students were arrested by police for inciting violence.

The Education and Information Ministries are expected to meet with the MCSS Teachers Wednesday, October 16, 2019 to find resolution to the delayed salary problem.
