Authorities at the Liberian House of Representatives allegedly order bathrooms closed due to lack of toiletries and other supplies including water. Many staffers and regular visitors of the Capitol Building met a great embarrassment on Thursday when maintenance officers who take care of the restrooms were not seen anywhere around. It is reported that the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) usually brings water to the Capitol Building in tanks rather than underground pipes. According to our source, LWSC had not brought water to the Capitol Building since Monday, August 27, 2018.
Our reporter confirmed that the bathrooms where Thursday locked thus preventing lawmakers, staffers including the public from easing themselves in the event of nature.
A maintenance officer who begged for anonymity revealed the lack of supply including toiletries for at least seven months.
The unnamed maintenance officer added that the bathrooms only receive water while logistics are not forthcoming.
Investigative sources have hinted this station that the shutting down of the bathrooms is reportedly on the orders of the House’s Rules, Orders and Administration Committee.
However, the committee Heads and Members are yet to comment on this latest allegation as Deputy House Speaker Prince Moye restored calm with the bathrooms situated along the chambers opened.
