Bong County Bar defense team understaffed
The Vice President of the Bong County Local Bar Association says the defense team of the County is understaffed most especially when crimes are being heinously committed.
Attorney Patrick Williams who is also one of Bong County Public Defenders said there is serious need that huge budgetary allocations be directed to the Country’s Justice System in order to execute its professional duties for the betterment of the Country.
Attorney Williams said Bong County is large and as such, the defense team should be adequately staffed in order to work alongside the County Attorney to ensure cases are adjudicated on time.
Ebola eradication campaign hits Bong
As part of efforts to eradicate the deadly Ebola Virus out of the Country, a month-long Ebola awareness campaign organized by the Keenan Institute in Bong County is underway in Suakoko and Jorquelleh Districts.
According to the Administrator of the School, Madam Reheltta Wreh, the process is an initiative of the Children’s Reading Center Incorporated along with the Liberia Reads Association of Literacy Educators in order to address the current health crisis in the County and beyond.
Madam Wreh in a chat with our Bong County correspondent said the initiative also intends to build the lives of school-going children, in order to spread preventive massages against the Ebola Virus Disease at community and District levels.
The Keenan Institute Coordinator of the Ebola Awareness Through Reading (EATR) is being funded by St. Christopher Episcopal Church in Chatham, the USA in partnership with Mr. & Mrs. Melosh of Liberia Reads to Learn and E. Christopher Cone of New Jersey the Americas.
She commended their partners through their supports in fighting the Virus in the Country narrating; their efforts would go a long way in the history of the nation and its people. She called on residents of the targeted communities to practice the the preventive measures announced by the health care workers if the Virus must be eradicated out of the Country.
Mrs. Wreh at the same time called on the Bong Ebola Taskforce to assist them with some anti-Ebola materials in order to smooth their awareness program across Jorquelleh and Suakoko Districts. She named gasoline to move around as one of the major constraints faced by the team though they were local in their intervention.
Also in need of Madam Wreh named chlorides, chlorine, buckets, soap and hand sanitizers as some other things lacking their operation noting, community members ask them for these materials during their sensitization process.
