By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent
ROBERTSPORT, October 19 (LINA) - Grand Cape Mount County Assistant Superintendent for Development, Tenneh Simpson Kpedebah, has said the county administration will implement planned development projects despite the Ebola outbreak.
Assistant Superintendent Kpedebah gave the assurance in an interview with the Liberia News Agency recently at a traditional ritual for the construction of the Keilia Creek Bridge in Keilia Town, Porkpa District.
Madame Kpedebah indicated that building a bridge over the Keilia Creek will enhance access to Porkpa and Gola Konneh districts and other parts of the county, as residents of these areas are finding it difficult to transport their produce to nearby markets.
She disclosed that all projects that were underway prior to the outbreak of the virus are at a standstill, but that plans have been finalized to resume those projects.
The official told LINA that projects earmarked for resumption include the Jajay, Damballa, Sewu, Butter Hill, Gondor’s Town, and Vankaway clinics.
