C.H. Rennie Hospital In Fuel Squeeze

By Richard Baysah, Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, Jan 23 (LINA) – Margibi County Superintendent, John Z. Buway, says the C.H. Rennie Hospital in Kakata, the provincial capital, is on the verge of closure due to lack of fuel to power its generators.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Kakata Thursday, following a meeting with health authorities in the county, Superintendent Buway said due to inadequate supply of fuel, doctors may not be able to carry out any surgical procedures at the hospital.

He quoted the health authorities as announcing at the meeting that they need 3,000 gallons of fuel to run the two generators in the interim, while awaiting a three-month supply from the Ministry of Health.

The C.H. Rennie Hospital is the only government referral hospital in Margibi County.

Meanwhile, Superintendent Buway says the county administration has donated 500 gallons of fuel as initial contribution to enable the hospital to continue functioning
