‘No tolerance for misconduct’ – Pres. Ali says in response to allegations against gov’t official
Following a slew of allegations of sexual exploitation against a sitting government official, President Dr Irfaan Ali reiterated his zero tolerance for anyone accused of or displaying such behaviour.
Over the past few days, a Facebook post detailing the allegations against the official has been making the rounds on social media and when contacted by the News Room on Friday, the Head of State said he has not received a formal or official complaint but noted that he saw the social media post.
However, he emphasised that once a report is made “it will be thoroughly investigated by the relevant authorities.”
President Ali also reiterated that he has “no tolerance for such behaviour and anyone found guilty of such allegations will be held accountable.”
“As a government, we are committed to having any facts fully investigated as we hold dearly our girls and women in every community. And we will continue to do everything to ensure their safety and well-being,” President Ali told the News Room.
