Date Uploaded: Dec 02, 2013

MONROVIA, Nov 16 (LINA) - A former Clan Chief of Klay District in Bomi County,                 Gbelly Sando, has said that the absence of improved social services is affecting the quality of life in the district.

He cited deplorable roads, health centers and lack of safe drinking water as key among social services that the district needs to be improved. 

 He said major roads connecting Gibi in Klay District to Suehn-Mecca District are totally cut off, while inaccessible farm-to-market roads has left farmers and marketers unable to trade.

Elder Sando told the Liberia News Agency in Monrovia on Saturday that Klay, the administrative headquarters of the district with a large population, lacks a public health center, exposing 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.

Elder Sando is calling on the county and national authorities to act fast in addressing the plight of the people of Klay District..
