Supt. Bans Canoes, Boats Entry In Cape Mount    

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, August 19 (LINA) -The administration of Grand Cape Mount County has placed a temporary ban on all canoes and boats from Monrovia and other places entering the county.

County Superintendent Imam Mohammed A.Paasewe disclosed the ban in an interview with the Liberia News Agency (LINA) Monday in Sinje Town, Garwula District.

Paasewe said he has ordered the joint security in the county to arrest and prosecute canoe and boat owners who travel to Cape Mount in violation of the ban imposed by the administration. 

He said the action is advised by a recent media report that some unknown criminals broke into and looted the Ebola Holding Center established by the Ministry of Health for suspected Ebola patients in the Township of West Point in Montserrado County.

He said the reported escape of patients at the center to unknown destinations has created fear and serious concern among citizens of Cape Mount County.

Superintendent Paasewe explained that mutual understanding and cordial relationship has existed between Cape Mount and West Point over the years due to both communities' involvement in fishing.

Meanwhile, according to Superintendent Paasewe, the administration and the County Health Team (CHT) have put in place measures to contain the spread of the deadly Ebola virus, and that he does not want the process to be interrupted by anyone.

He appealed to citizens of the county to assist the joint security by reporting the movement of strange canoes and boats on the Atlantic Ocean and Lake Piso to avoid infiltration into the county.
