Cape Mount County — The newly elected Chair of Grand Cape Mount Marketing Association Madam Jebbeh Sungai Swaray is appealing to the Government of Liberia (GOL) to expand the county general market facility.
In an interview with this paper shortly upon her ascendancy to her new portfolio, Madam Swaray stated, "The Jene Wonde Market is too small and several of the marketers don't have enough space to sell their goods."
According to her, the Jene Wonde Market suffered a serious set back during Liberia's protracted civil war which resulted to the destruction of its entire facility.
She indicated that the expansion work or project of the market which will include the construction of Ware House and other components would require over US$ 10,000.00.
She assured her fellow marketers that her leadership will foster peace and unity, so as to enhance tangible development within the county.
She also promised to address the marketer's plight and the growing needs and demand of every body including the marketers.
Mrs. Swaray added that during her transition time as head of the market, she will mainly focus on how to improve the market table, stalls and other facilities that would make it more conducive for the marketers.
She averred that her administration would help to ensure the day to day affairs of the market by ensuring that accountability in collections of toll or stall fees be properly accounted for or be utilize for the much intended development by improving the market at Jene Wonde.
Mrs. Swaray maintained that in her leadership, accountability and transparency will be her paramount concern because past marketer leaders of the market who were entrusted with position to lead the market were not using the funding to improve the market properly but instead diverted only the money it in to their own personal use and forget about the improvement of the market.
