Twenty Stranded Liberians Return Home
By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, September 27 (LINA) -Twenty Liberians stranded in the Republic of Sierra Leone due to the closure of the Liberia-Sierra Leone border have returned home.

The Liberian businessmen and women went to Sierra Leone in July 2014 to purchase some commodities to sell in Liberia when they were barred from returning home due to the closure of the border by the Liberian government.

The Superintendent of Grand Cape Mount County, Imam Mohamed Paasewe made the disclosure during the recent County Ebola Task Force Coordination Meeting in Garwula District.

He said the Liberians returned home on Tuesday, September 22, via Bo Waterside in Tewor District in good health.

Meanwhile, he has commended the government of Liberia for its diplomatic intervention with the Sierra Leonean government that led to the safe return of the people.
