Zota DC Concerned About Growing Cattle Theft
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

BELEFENAI, April 23 (LINA) - The Commissioner of Zota District in Bong County, Mr. Arthur K. Kpoleh, has raised alarm over the growing wave of cattle rustling in the district in recent times.

He told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) Tuesday that individuals using motorcycles connive with commercial vehicles to engage in cattle theft in isolated communities.

Commissioner Kpoleh said the situation is worrisome and needs the urgent intervention of county officials and the leadership of the Bong County branch of the Motorcycle Union of Liberia.

Meanwhile, Commissioner Kpoleh has said the lack of funds is hampering development programs of the district.

He said since taking over as commissioner in November 2012, the County administration has allotted only US$50,000 to the district from the County and Social Development Funds.

This amount, he noted, was used to rehabilitate the Commissioner Compound in Belefenai.

Mr. Kpoleh has, however, lauded the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) for rehabilitating the Jorwah road which links Liberia and neighboring Guinea through Bong County.

He said the existence of an improved road was enhancing commercial activities in the district.
