The Management of the Liberia Broadcasting System has with immediate effect suspended three of its personnel for acts incompatible with their status as employees of the system. The three suspended employees are Newscaster and Reporter Alfred Rogers; Legislative Reporter Titus Tokpa and Sports Reporter Richard Manuba. The three LBS Employees will serve a two-month suspension each.
A release said in separate letters of suspension to the three media personnel of the system, the LBS Management said its actions stem from the three personnel “continuous disrespect and gross insubordination to the senior Management of LBS; the continuous disregard for administrative channels and procedures for addressing grievances in contravention of Part IV section 2002 of the labor laws of Liberia as well as Part IV Section 1 of the personnel manual of LBS; and the unauthorized holding of a press conference on the premises of the system, as well as the continuous discourteous treatment of other employees of the system.”
Meanwhile, LBS Management wishes to inform the public that it remains focused in its efforts, with full endorsement from the Board of Directors to create an enviable National Media Outfit which provides quality public service broadcast and media services for the people of Liberia.
