Former Liberia’s Forestry Development Authority or FDA Managing Director Mr. Harrison Kanwea who recently resigned from the ruling Unity Party to join opposition Liberty Party has presented equipment to Radio Bong in Bong County, after the local station was hit by heavy storm.
Horrific storm recently swept through Gbarnga, Bong County, completely blowing away the roof of the building that hosts Radio Bong and further destroying several working tools, including computers and television, among others.
Making the presentation on behalf of the Liberty Party over the weekend, Mr. Kanwea expressed regret over the situation and promised to return with additional assistance. Materials donated include five bundles of zinc and ceilings.
Mr. Karnwea said he was informed of the destruction when a staff of the institution sent him a text message following the incident. On behalf of LP Standard Bearer Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine, he extended sympathy to the station for the lost. Mr. Kanwea said under a LP-led government, disaster issues will be taken very seriously.
Receiving the materials on behalf of the station, Radio Gbarnga Editor – In- Chief Clarence Jackson commended the LP and called on others to follow such example.
