A senior anti-corruption official in Liberia has quit, citing the government's failure to pay his salary and benefits. J Barnard Nagbe, who served in the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission, described the situation as ‘unbearable’. BBC News reports that President George Weah's Government has been hit by a series of high-profile resignations as the country grapples with difficult economic conditions and a cash-crunch.
