Liberia: Lawmaker Embarks On Dev. Initiatives

Nimba County District #4 Lawmaker Gunpue L. Kargon has embarked on several development initiatives in his district.

One of the initiatives over the weekend was the launch of a guesthouse project in Gbor Payee in Nimba County by a group under the banner (GCUP) "Gbor Citizens United For Progress."

The lawmaker appreciated Gbor citizens and all relevant citizens to include, lawmaker Jeremian K. Koung, Superintendent Dorr Cooper, Senator Thomas S. Grupee, among others, for making meaningful contributions.

Gunpue Kargon, affectionately called "Dubai King," also broke grounds for the construction of an eight bed room staff quarter in Wehplay, to help boost the human capacity for staff at a clinic under construction.

In recent times, the lawmaker initiated a swamp rice project in his district in Vanyenglay Town as a means of achieving the Pro-Poor Agenda.

The District #4 lawmaker also launched a community road brushing commencing from Payee Town to Zouplay, and Bayleglay to Rlekporlay Town and embarked on international scholarship for at least 10 persons from his district to travel for studies in the USA.

He appreciated the former Senator, Adolphus Dolo, for buttressing his efforts in reconditioning some roads in the district.

Meanwhile, the lawmaker on his way to Monrovia from Nimba to perform his official state duty was involved in an accident on the Kakata-Monrovia highway.

The accident occurred on Tuesday, March 19, 2019, resulting to the death to a motorcyclist identified as Elija Korkorlee.

In an interview with this paper, the lawmaker expressed condolence to the bereaved family and cautioned the police to immediately launch an investigation into the matter.

He promised to work along with the family members in making sure that the deceased obtains a befitting burial.
