Senior Finance Officials Under 21-Day Surveillance

Minister Konneh gave staff traumatized by the events of the last few days permission to take time off

The Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) has now officially “joined” the fight against the deadly Ebola virus, which last week snatched away one of their senior colleagues, Mr. Patrick Sawyer.

Mr. Sawyer, who met his untimely death in Lagos, Nigeria, after he had gone there to attend an Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) conference, was the Coordinator of the ECOWAS National Unit at the MFDP.
