Liberia: Clara Town Residents Welcome Road Construction, But...

Residents of Fanina presently known as Clara Town say they welcome the proposed road construction in their community by the Ministry of Public Works but want a specific timeframe when the construction will commence.

In a communication to Public Works Minister, Samuel Kofi Woods, the residents through the Vai Governor, Varfee W. Sirleaf said the exercise that the Public Works Ministry is undertaking at Clara Town is a meaningful one and acceptable in the interest and cause of development.

According to Governor Sirleaf who walked into the offices of The INQUIRER yesterday, the various houses have been earmarked for demolition and that the citizens are very much eager to know the scope of the construction plan by Public Works.

In the communication, Governor Sirleaf noted, "Mr. Minister, if it pleases you and not against your wishes, I shall be highly appreciative were you to notify me as to when this project is going to start so that the citizens may not be taken by surprise."

He added that the citizens are breaking down part of their houses so as to accommodate the would-be project which is almost at the detriment of residents of Clara Town since the area has become vulnerable due to the infiltration of rogues and other criminals.

"These are all my fears for rogues not to disturb our citizens," he further averred.
