Gov’t Compensates 627 Property Owners

By Richard Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, March 25 (LINA) - Government has completed compensatory payment of over US$1.2 million to owners of 627 structures demolished along the Konola and Todee Highways in Margibi and Montserrado Counties, for the construction of a new highway.

The payments, which started a little over a week ago, were completed on March 14, and made through the Ministry of Public Works under the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP).

A report from the Internal Monitoring Committee of the Superintendent of Margibi County addressed to the Chairperson of the Economic Pillar, under the Agenda for Transformation of Margibi County, Madam Frances Sammy, gave a breakdown of the payments made.

According to the report, a copy of which is in the possession of the Liberia News Agency, US$216,756.61 was paid in full to owners of 45 revalued structures, US$470, 633.00 to owners of 280 unadjusted valued buildings, while owners of 302 unadjusted structures received a total of US$545, 084.00.00.

According to the report, the owners of these structures received their respective amounts in Central Bank checks.

The World Bank is currently sponsoring the reconstruction of the Red Light to Gbarnga-Ganta highway, and as part of its quota, the Liberian government had to pay for affected structures that fall within the right of way.

The road construction projects are being done by a Chinese construction company, CICO, at a total cost of US$166 million, financed by the World Bank.
