Tubmanburg Mayor Admits City Unsanitary

By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, Feb 2 (LINA) - The Mayor of Tubmanburg City, the provincial capital of Bomi County, Rebecca Benson, has admitted  to the unsanitary condition of the city, blaming it on the lack of allotment in the National Budget for the City Corporation.

She observed that it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to keep a big city like Tubmanburg clean without the needed logistics and budgetary support.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Mayor Benson made the statement during a one-day Consultative Meeting on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) conducted by civil society organizations (CSOs) at the weekend in Tubmanburg.

The Consultative Meeting was held under the theme: “KEEP THE PROMISE TO END WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE CRISIS IN LIBERIA.”

Mayor Benson also attributed the unsanitary condition of the city to the refusal of community residents to clean their environment.

She disclosed that the wells at the C. H. Dewey Central High School have no water, adding that there are also no good latrine facilities for students and community residents as a whole.

The City Mayor said in her plan for 2014, the issue of sanitation of the city will be taken into consideration, provided the county authorities make available the required funding to the management of the city.

Mayor Benson urged the community leaders to prevail on residents to clean their areas and to protect drinking wells.

The Mayor then pledged her administration’s support to the work of CSOs in the communities.
