Bong PMC Provides Update On Development Funds
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, February 1 (LINA) - The Bong County Project Management Committee (PMC) has named several development projects in the county as “visible” impacts of the County and Social Development Funds.

At a public forum at the Malian Intellectual Hataye Center in Gbarnga Sunday, Bong County Project Specialist Thomas Cisco named the rehabilitation of roads in Bong Mines, Gbarnga, Yellequlleh, Kokoyah, Jorquelleh Districts One and Two, as well as Zota, as some of the projects that have been implemented with funding from the CDF and the SDF.

He also attributed the construction of town halls, schools, youth centers, commissioners' residences in several districts and the construction of the David Kuyon Sports Stadium to the CDF and the SDF.

He disclosed that the county administration used portion of the funds to purchase motorbikes for commissioners to enhance mobility as well as to fund the Madam Suakoko Scholarship Program and provide financial support to C.B Dunbar and Phebe hospitals.

Cisco, however, cited bureaucracy at the Public Procurement and Concessions Commission (PPCC), delay in the timely remittance of development funds by national government as well as misperceptions surrounding the expenditure of the funds in the county, as some of the challenges facing the implementation of projects.

Speaking earlier, the Regional Coordinator of the Malian Intellectual Hataye Center, Moses Bailey, said the public forum was part of activities of the “Fostering Concession Communities Development’ through local engagement projects.

Bailey said the project sponsored by Trust Africa seeks to help citizens understand issues surrounding concessions and empower them to constructively engage their leaders so that they can benefit from the extraction of their resources.
