CSO Official Cheers Curfew In Bomi

By: David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, August 27 (LINA) - The Coordinator of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Bomi County, Boima Sando, has lauded government’s decision to impose a curfew in the country.

Coordinator Sando said residents of Bomi County are observing the curfew because they know that it is in their interest.

He said the CSOs have realized that the curfew is intended to curtail huge gatherings as part of measures to eradicate the Ebola virus that has claimed he lives of many Liberians.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency on Tuesday in Tubmanburg, Sando said the only thing government needs to do is to put in place measures to ensure the availability of basic food items at affordable prices.

He noted that the issue of obtaining food and other essential goods is the problem the people are facing, especially in towns and villages.

Mr. Sando said ordinary people cannot afford to purchase a half bag of rice, which is currently being sold for L$1,500 or more.

He stressed the need for government to ensure that basic food items are sold at affordable and stipulated prices to enable low income people to purchase them.

He said it will not be in the interest of the government for people to die of hunger while efforts are being exerted to contain the Ebola virus.

 

Coordinator Sando also disclosed that the CSOs commenced the dissemination of preventive messages two weeks ago in the four districts of Klay, Suehn Mecca, Dewein and Senjeh.

He said CSO teams are engaging people on a one-on-one basis, noting that this method of disseminating Ebola preventive messages is more effective because the people have the opportunity to ask questions instead of just providing buckets, Clorox and other items to them.

Coordinator Sando noted that what the people, especially uneducated people, need is to talk to them one-on-one.
