George Weah To Cut Salary By 25% As Part Of Effort To Confront Liberia's Broken Economy

In one of his first acts as President of Liberia, George Weah has announced he will cut his salary by 25% as part of an effort to confront his country's "broken economy."

"In view of the very rapidly deteriorating situation of the economy, I am informing you today, with immediate effect, that I will reduce my salary and benefits by 25%," Weah said in his first State of the Republic address.

Weah, a former professional soccer star in Europe, was sworn in as President of the West African nation last week.
