Citizens Commit To Repair Bridges In Yarmein District
By Wellington G Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

YARMEIN, September 9 (LINA) - The citizens of Yarmein Administrative District in Nimba County have agreed to reconstruct the Kan River and Yekepa Bridges to make accessible over 10 towns, including Bololewee, along the Guinea-Liberia border.

The citizens took the decision at an emergency forum Tuesday after days of constraints in travelling from the district to other areas due to the dilapidated condition of the two bridges that got damaged as a result of flooding.

Heavy downpour of rain which started on Friday night, September 4, and ended on Sunday, September 6, overflowed the river banks and destroyed the two
bridges and seven rice farms.

At the end of the meeting, the Secretary General of Yarmein Development Council (YDC), Saye Gba, told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) that the citizens have decided to temporarily construct the two bridges under a ‘community self-help initiative', while awaiting the intervention of government and partners.

Following the floods, Nimba County Assistant Superintendent for Development Dorr Cooper told a press conference that engineers were assessing the possibility of repairing or reconstructing the damaged bridges.
