Bomi Chief, County Authority Trade Charges

TUBMANBURG, May 15 (LINA) - Clan Chief Jonathan Clarke of Lowerzo, Dewein District, Bomi County, has said the clan lacks social services due to neglect by authorities of the county.

He said the clan had no health center, school, safe drinking water and public latrines even while the county basks in County and Social Development Funds.

The county last year collected about US$1.3 million in the two funds.

The County Development Fund is provided by the national Budget, while the3 Social Development Fund comes from concessions operating in a county to help spur provi9sion of social services as part of their corporate social responsibility.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Clan Chief Clarke made the statement on Wednesday in Bonor Town, Lowerzo Clan in an interview with the agency.

He said the citizens of the clan have been abandoned by the County Authority in terms of development projects, noting that several meetings with the District Commissioner have been fruitless.

When contacted, Assistant Bomi County Superintendent for Development Ernest Gray Davis denied the allegations that the district has been abandoned by the county authorities.

Superintendent Davis said no area in the county has been abandoned, adding that the Clan Chief of Lowerzo may not be au courant with how the County Administration works.
