Chief Karwor Re-Visits Memorial For Ebola Victims Issue

By Catherine B. Nyenkan

MONROVIA, April 9 (LINA) - The head of the National Traditional Council of Chiefs and Elders, Zanzan Karwor, is calling on government to build a national memorial site for those who lost their lives to the Ebola Virus Disease.

Speaking on the UNMIL Radio recently, Karwor said he wants those who lost their lives to the Ebola virus to be given decent burial so that their families can have a grave to go to.

“It is against our culture to burn a dead body but we can’t blame anybody because it was done due to the Ebola crisis,” Karwor said, adding “I am calling on the Government and NGOs to help us give these people a decent burial”

Karwor revealed that more than 40 drums of human ashes were turned over to the Traditional Council by Global Community, and are now being kept at Disco Hill on the Robertsfield highway, adding that he fears what will happen if these drums get rusty and burst.

The issue of the memorial site continues to be raised, even by the government, but action is yet to be taken.
