Over 10,000 inhabitants of Kizito Community in Paynesville City, Montserrado County are said to be without a public referral health facility. Addressing a cross section of inhabitants of the community recently, an aspirant for the community leadership, Mr. Samuel Freeman, said health care delivery for the residents is a serious problem for them.
He also disclosed the community had had series of consultations with the county Legislative Caucus and other officials of Montserrado County on the need to provide a clinic for the inhabitants; officials’ response has been negative.
He said due to the absence of health care delivery, most of the population is constrained to seek medication at privately-run health centers. Freeman vowed that when elected as chairman, he would prioritize reconciliation among the residents, stressing that without unity and understanding, no development can take place.
Currently the acting chair for the Kizito Community, he promised to lobby with partners of the community in ensuring that several developmental projects, including modern youth center, primary school are achieved as well as forging cooperation with the Liberia Marketing Association on waste management, youth participation in quizzing and intellectual discourse, among others.
Meanwhile, Mr. Freeman has expressed frustration over the alleged failure of the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) to erect light poles in the community after several frantic efforts made by the community.
