Social media in Liberia is awash again with criticism of politicians after the most senior minister in the office of President George Weah buried his mother in an expensive mausoleum this week.
The structure, which resembles a house, was built by Presidential Affairs Minister Nathaniel McGill. It has a pyramid-style roof, columns and all the attributes of a modern royal home.
The specially designed tomb is placed in the middle.
Talk show host Henry Costa - a vocal critic of President Weah - shared a video of the mausoleum under construction on his Facebook page:
Many have taken to social media to condemn the move as wasteful spending in a poor country.
“The extravagance I saw today shocked me to my core,” said Benjamin Yeagar, a critic, writing on Facebook.
“This was a complete insensitive display of wealth.”
Another commenter Stanley Cooper added: “With all that opulence, did the madam wake up from the grave? Useless showmanship!”
But Abdul Kanneh, who supports Mr McGill, said that “only heartless individuals will bully someone who is grieving for the loss of his/her love one. This is no politics, it is called EVIL.”
Just last week, a junior minister working under Mr McGill came under spotlight when he was seen in a video splashing champagne on an expensive SUV he had bought for his wife as a birthday gift.
