Rep. Mulbah Pledges Legislature Support To Security Sector
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, October 12 (LINA) - The Chairman of the House Standing Committee on National Defense, George Mulbah, has said the Legislature remains committed to supporting the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) and other national security institutions in the country.

He said this commitment is even profound owing to the drawdown of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).

Representative Mulbah noted that to ensure the protection of the territorial boundaries and sustenance of peace in Liberia, the AFL and other security agencies must be given the needed financial, moral and logistical support.

He said in the face of the drawdown of UNMIL, the security sector is prepared to closely work with all citizens to protect the country, and as such, the House Committee on National Defense will work with other members of the Legislature to provide the necessary budgetary support to further strengthen the sector.

The Bong County lawmaker made the statement over the weekend when he addressed a cross-section of residents of the Brooklyn Community in Gbarnga, Bong County on issues confronting the nation.

Mulbah, who provided US$500 to the Brooklyn Community to purchase a parcel of land to construct a community center, reiterated his commitment to work with residents of Electoral District#3 in Bong County to develop the district.

He also pledged five bundles of zinc for the project and encouraged the community to take full ownership of the project when completed.

Also speaking at the occasion, Brooklyn Community chairperson Maybel Malayea commended Representative Mulbah for his support and work in the district, and pledged her community's commitment to work with him in ensuring the successful completion of the project.

Malayea admonished members of Brooklyn Community to unite and work together for the growth and development of the area.
