Video Clubs, Bong Ebola Taskforce Sign Pact

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent
GBARNGA, September 16 (LINA) – Owners of Video Clubs in Bong County have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the County’s Ebola Task Force to resume operations.

At the signing ceremony in Gbarnga on Monday, the club owners agreed to reduce their usual capacity by half and to place sanitary or hand-washing buckets at the entrance of every club.

In the MOU, they also agreed to observe the national curfew and to set up their own monitoring team that will report to the task force daily, and called on the task force to seize the decoders and other important equipment of violators of any count of the MOU until Ebola is eradicated from the county.

The latest agreement has provided a means of revenue generation for owners of video clubs and has also provided lovers of the European games an opportunity to again watch their favorite clubs and players.

In a related development, the head of the County Task Force, Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy, recently relaxed restriction on the entry of vehicles into the county from 6:00 p.m. to the recently adjusted national curfew following the intervention of the Chairman of the Bong County Legislative Caucus, Senator Henry Yallah.

According to Senator Yallah, lifting the restriction was necessary because Bong County was the only county with such measures, noting, “The measures were a bit harsh, especially considering its geographical location.”

Monday’s signing brings to two the adjustments that have been made to three key regulations instituted by the Bong County Ebola Task Force, while motorcyclists continue to mount pressure for adjustment in their 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. operational schedule.

The Bong County Ebola Task Force, with advice from the county health team, had announced the temporary closure of all video clubs, reduction of motorcyclist’s daily operational period from 6:00 a.m. to 6>00 p.m., and the prohibition of the entry of vehicles into the county after 6:00 p.m..
