The Governor of the Mende ethnic group in Liberia, Mr. James N. Moseray, is calling on his kinsmen to galvanize their resources morally, financially and spiritually to revamp their mother organization, the Vahun District Development Association (VDDA) following several years of dormancy.
Speaking to our reporter in an exclusive interview recently, Mr. Monseray said it is the responsibility of all Mendes throughout the country to once again come together in strong union to reorganize the VDDA as, according to him, the Association is the umbrella organization under which all Mendes are covered.
"The war that disrupted the smooth operation of the Association has ended several years ago, so we need to come together as one family to resuscitate our Association," Mr. Moseray said.
He used the occasion to call on all Mende Governors in Gbarpolu, Margibi, Bassa and other counties to adequately inform their members about the planned effort to revamp the Association. "VDDA is there to respond to the cries of all Mendes, irrespective of their political or religious affiliations," he stressed.
Meanwhile, the Mende Governor has announced about a major meeting to be held this Sunday, February 17, 2013 at the Mohammed Salim Bakhit Islamic School near Caldwell Junction at 2:00PM.
The meeting, according to Mr. Moseray, will discuss the Association's membership and the planned visit of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to Vahun District, among others.
