Date Uploaded: Nov 24, 2013

MONROVIA, Nov 16 (LINA) - A former Clan Chief of Klay District in Bomi County, Mr. Gbelly Sando, has disclosed that poor social services in the district is negatively impacting the quality of life there.

He cited deplorable roads, lack of health centers, and lack of safe drinking water as some of the poor social services in the district that need to be improved. 

 Elder Sando told the Liberia News Agency Saturday that major roads connecting Gibi in Klay District to Suehn-Mecca District are totally cut off while farm-to-market roads are impassable, restricting the movement of goods and services in the district.

He said Klay, the headquarters of the district, which has a large population, lacks a public health center, a situation that continues to expose the residents to health risks.

He said residents usually travel long distances with patients in hammocks to seek medical attention while critical cases are sent to Tubmanburg, the capital of Bomi County.

Meanwhile, elder Sando is calling on Bomi County authorities and central government to attend to the problems of the district and, thereby, help improve living conditions in Klay District.
