MICAT Official Says Community Radios Cardinal In Ebola Fight

KAKATA, October 21 (LINA) -Assistant Information Minister for Administration, Patrick Worzie, has observed that community radio stations are cardinal in the dissemination of information on the Ebola disease and government must identify with them.

He stressed that without the total involvement of community radio stations in the Ebola fight, it would be difficult to disseminate information about the disease to rural Liberia and contain the Ebola spread.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Assistant Minister Worzie made the observation over the weekend in Kakata, Margibi County, when he donated hand-washing materials and flyers on the Ebola disease to community radio stations in Margibi County.

Community radio stations that benefited from the donation are Radio Kakata, Peace FM in Harbel, Salala Agricultural Workers Union FM (SAWU- FM), Radio Gbaisue, as well as the Liberia News Agency local office in Margibi County.

He explained that community radio stations in Bong, Lofa and Margibi counties will initially benefit from the ministry’s gesture and that the exercise will continue in other parts of the country.

Receiving the items, LINA Margibi County Correspondent, Richard Baysah, thanked Assistant Minister Worzie for the donation and assured that the community radio station will fully utilize the items.
