Liberia: U.S.One Million Streets Project Launched in Kakata

Formal ground breaking and official launch of major roads rehabilitation in Kakata city was over the weekend held, bringing together local officials, civil society movements as well as the county's legislative caucus.

Giving an overview of the project, Margibi Superintendent John Z. Boway put the cost of the road rehabilitation project at over US1M and added that the project was being funded from the county development funds (CDF).

The project which is expected to be completed in the space of eight months was also being implemented by a Liberian- owned firm Modern Development and Management Corporation (MDMC), headed by Mr. John Youboty.

At the same time, Supt. Boway said that there would be no compensation for squatters along the city limit of the streets or the zooning limit, adding "exiting structure will be demolished."

For his part, Representative Stephen Kafi of District # 3 Margibi County hailed the project and called on all well-meaning Margibians to take the project as their own by cooperating with the process.
