Over 10,000 Nimbaians sleep in bushes

By Thomas Domah, Nimba County

Over ten thousand Nimbaians are homeless, living in bushes across all nine administrative districts in the county, as a result of rain storms.

Since March 2022 up to present, government is yet to help storm victims rebuild their lives. This follows heavy downpours that affected towns and villages in the districts.

Recently, over two hundred people were left homeless in Gbor Diavoryee Town in electoral district#4, Nimba. They are yet to receive help from government thus, joining hundreds of others that are sleeping in bushes.

Speaking to reporters, county inspector and head of the Nimba branch of the disaster management agency Mack Gbilwom expressed disappointment and frustration in the Weah-led government for ignoring the plight of the storm victims.

He said only few members of the county administration have provided private support, including food and medication to the victims.

Some of the storm victims praised former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and some local authorities for going to their rescue.

They also lauded Representative Larry Younquoi of electoral district#8 and Representation Samuel Kogar of District #5, among others. Editing by Jonathan Browne
