Bong Superintendent Criticizes China Union’s Services
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

BONG MINES, May 15 (LINA) - Bong County Superintendent Selena Polson-Mappy has criticized the management of China Union Investment for its slow services in the county, and called on it to improve their services.

Mappy said though China Union has done well in the asphalt pavement of the Kakata-Bong Mines road, the company still needs to improve its relations with the locals.

She named the effective delivery of health care to both citizens and employees, coupled with its employment policies, as major components of the company’s operations that need to be improved.


Speaking to the Liberia News Agency at the end of the regular quarterly meeting of concessions operating in the Bong County, Mappy said she also wants the company to reconsider plans to charge non-employees US$50 as transportation fees for referral cases facilitated by use of the company’s ambulance from Bong Mines to Monrovia.

She said the lack of drugs was evident after visiting the hospital's warehouse where few international and Chinese drugs were shelved for the entire hospital.

Supt. Mappy emphasized the need for other line ministries to help the county by ensuring that their component of the company’s operation is properly observed.

The Bong County Superintendent wondered whether the planned medical charges, patterns and conditions of employment, information and the iron ore extraction and shipment meet the approval of concerned line ministries.

The regular quarterly meeting of concessions is intended to acquaint county authorities with the operational standings, service deliveries of individual companies, achievements and constraints with the intent of helping to mitigate their processes.

The second quarterly meeting brought together all concessionaires, including Jonah Capital, BHP Billiton, ArcelorMittal, China Union and Lee Group
