Chief Desires Development In Lowerzoo Clan

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, June 10 (LINA) - Clan Chief Jonathan Clarke of Lowerzoo Clan in Dewein District, Bomi County has said the clan feels abandoned by authorities of the district in terms of development.

Chief Clarke said Lowerzoo Clan has not benefitted from the County and Social Development Funds since their institution by the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Government.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in the Clan at the weekend, Chief Clarke said there are no schools, health facilities, safe drinking water and latrine facilities in the clan.

He said on many occasions the Commissioner of the District, Foley Siryon, was approached on the situation, but that his response has not been encouraging.

When contacted, Commissioner Siryon said the Clan has not been abandoned by his administration, as claimed by the Chief.

He said presently, there is an elementary school in Weamah Town, Lowerzoo Clan, and that there are plans to construct a clinic in the clan with funding from the 2014 -2015 National Budget.

Commissioner Siryon told the Liberia News Agency that since Mr. Clarke was appointed acting Paramount Chief on May 21, he has not attended meetings nor submitted programs for the clan.
