Traditional Council Holds Ebola Town Hall Meeting

By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, January 23 (LINA) - A four-member team of the National Traditional Council in collaboration with a team from the Ministry of Health has begun a week-long Ebola Palava Hut meeting with stakeholders in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County.

The meeting, which is being sponsored by Global Communities, a local non-governmental organization, is expected to take place in two other southeastern counties -- River Gee and Maryland counties.

The team, headed by Chief John S. Korsor, a member of the National Traditional Council of Liberia, arrived in the county on Thursday, January 22, on the first leg of the three-county visit.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency upon their arrival in Zwedru on Friday, the team’s spokesman Thomas West said the meetings will be an interactive forum with a cross-section of chiefs, traditional leaders, commissioners and youth and women groups.

According to him, the meeting seeks to get views on the impact of the Ebola virus on their respective communities, status on the preventive measures and the way forward to ensure that the virus is completely eradicated from the country.

The team is one of six set up by the Chairman of the National Traditional Council, Chief Zanzan Karwah, at the recent council meeting in Lofa County.

All six teams are presently deployed across the country and will submit their findings to the council by February 15.
