Lukambeh Citizens Decry Delay In Naming District Officials

By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, August 20 (LINA) -The Chairman of the Lukambeh Community Association (LCA) in Monrovia, Boakai Kromah, has said citizens of the district are concerned about the delay in appointing officials for the newly-created Lukambeh Administrative District in Lofa County.

The Act creating the Lukambeh Administrative District, formerly a part of Kolahun District, was signed into law by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and subsequently printed into Handbill on June 9, 2014.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency recently, Kromah indicated that the Act was never presented to the citizens by their Representative until March 2016 in Passolahun Town, the seat of new district.

He said since the submission of three names for selection of one to be appointed to the position of District Commissioner, and one as Paramount Chief, there has been no appointment in the new district.

Kromah said other appointments yet to be made include City Mayor and other local authorities.

He said the appointments are cardinal in steering the affairs of the newly-created district.

The district came into being as a result of the combination of two clans (Lukasu and Hembah) in Kolahun District to enable citizens in that part of the country benefit from development programs and an opportunity to participate in the governance of their country.
