A spokesman for members of the disbanded Armed Forces of Liberia has described the current Ebola outbreak in the country as unfortunate, saying it needs religious intervention. Former captain Jerry Kollie said, during his recent visit to the Forest Region of Guinea, the epicenter of the disease, he observed no single Ebola case reported in towns and villages he visited.
Former AFL Captain Kollie suggested there were some unknown health workers in Masantha, who had gone to spray some communities, but were driven away by members of the community, blaming them for ‘infesting people’ with the virus.
He said at present, there are no reported cases of Ebola in the places he visited while in Guinea. The one time Legislative Candidate for Montserrado County said he did not doubt the existence Ebola, but the situation needed to be critically examined.
He extended condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives as a result of the outbreak of the Ebola, especially nurses. Mr. Kollie said the epidemic needed a strong religious fight, if Liberians must overcome it, emphasizing that it would be easy if Liberians can build true faith that God is able to heal the land.
