After being threatened by Ebola suspects, Margibi County Superintendent, John Zubah Buway, has reopened his offices in the county. Superintendent Buway was constrained to close his offices on September 24, 2014 after he and his officials, including county inspector, assistant superintendent for development and other staffers were threatened with Ebola infection by Ebola suspects in Kakata, leading to the escape of the county inspector.
Recently, some Ebola suspects barricaded the offices of Superintendent Buway, demanding to be taken to holding centers in the county and better support for their lives. The suspects said their relatives died showing symptoms of the virus, admitting that they came in contact with them.
The Ebola suspects said they were tired of calling on the Margibi County Health Team to go to their aid in taking them to the treatment center for care. The suspects threatened that any time they were denied access to Superintendent Buway’s offices without being attended to, they (suspects) would rush in and touch anyone found in the premises. The situation had scared the superintendent and his co-workers to abandon office for fear of contracting the disease.
