Residents of the Frog Island Community in Gbarnga have found the dead body of little girl identified as Princess Kandaka after eight days of intensive search. A Little Princess Kandaka’s body was found in the Jor River in Gbarnga, approximately 300 meters from the deceased residence with all parts intact.

Princess, age 4, was reported to have gone to use her ‘chemo’ or toilet bucket when she mistakenly slipped and fell into a stream that leads to the Jor River. The stream, at a high level due to continuous and heavy rainfall, took little Princess to the main river.

After careful examination of the body, an established 15-man jury reported no foul-play in the death of 4 Princesses. However, family members of the deceased have accused police authorities of doing nothing in the search of their relative.

They expressed the belief that the alleged careless attitude exhibited by the police resulted in the death of little Princess. Little Princess Kandaka got missing since July 27, 2014 and her body was discovered early August 4 in the Jor river.

Gbarnga City Corp Receives Tractors

In an effort against the Ebola outbreak in the Country, the Gbarnga City Corporation has embarked on an awareness Campaign across the city. Speaking to our Bong County correspondent at her Gbarnga office, City Mayor Esther Worbey said the GCC has printed several banners, Fliers and posters containing messages on how to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus in the Country.

According to the Mayor, it was the GCC’s own way of buttressing government’s efforts in controlling the spread of the disease that has killed 129 individuals in Liberia. Mayor Worbey has joined others to call on Liberians to immediately stop the eating and selling of bush meat and follow the preventive measures being provided by health workers.

In a related development, the Gbarnga City Corporation has received two tractors to be used by the GCC. The Ministry of Youth and Sports presented the two tractors to the Gbarnga City Corporation to strengthen its capacity to clean the City.

Being closely monitored by the Gbarnga City Corporation, the Ministry of Youth and Sports is currently running its Youth Empowerment Program in Gbarnga with young people  seen every morning side-brushing streets and highways and disposing other waste materials in the city.
