Grand Cape Mount County Representative, Matthew Darblo, has amicably resolved a tribal conflict involving the Mandingoes and Golas of the Lofa Bridge Community, Gola Konneh District, Grand Cape Mount County. According to our Cape Mount Correspondent, the conflict between the two groups was resolved on March 20, following the intervention of Representative Darblo, assisted by an 11-man Board of Elders comprising both tribes.
Representative Darblo admonished the two groups to refrain from acts of violence having the propensity to feud conflict. He made specific reference to the recent madness in Kornia and Voinjama, Lofa County in which four persons were killed and properties, including religious edifices destroyed.
Representatives of the two groups commended the lawmaker for his intervention and subsequent resolution of the conflict. They added Liberia is a country of law, and as such, promised to work for the attainment of peace and tranquility.
Meanwhile, a three–day mini football tournament under the sponsorship of Representative Darblo, aimed at promoting peace and reconciliation among the people Lofa Bridge Community ended last weekend in the district.
