Dear Editor,On April 5, it was reported in the State media that Junior Public Infrastructure Minister Annette Ferguson, who was accompanied by Regional Councillor Juilian Cummings, visited the Pomeroon riverine communities of Friendship and Martindale to address concerns affecting the livelihood and wellbeing of residents, particularly the clogged canals which were adversely affecting ingress and egress to their homesteads.Over the years, these neglected communities have suffered from the lack of basic infrastructure, such as roads, electricity, potable water and sewage disposal. Therefore, the people should not delude themselves into thinking that, from Minister Ferguson’s visit, anything substantial will be done anytime soon to improve their lot, since the Govt. has no development plan for this considered backwater area.However, it’s worth a try for them to seek assistance from the State, as they do not have the financial/technical resources to do much of the “heavy lifting” required to improve their communities, nor the political clout to effect the necessary changes.Firstly, the Government should be requested, through the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority, to provide a dragline/excavator to clear the clogged canals of silt and vegetation. This would enable residents to get their produce to market, their children to school, and their sick to the hospital in a timely manner.Secondly, the cultivated areas should be empoldered to prevent flooding from excessive rainfall, runoff from adjoining lands, and overtopping from the Pomeroon River.Next, the Government should provide low-interest loans for residents to buy solar-generated electricity for their homes, which is cost-effective vis-a-vis diesel-generated electricity. Loans should also be provided to assist the residents to purchase 400/500- gallon PVC tanks to store rainwater for their domestic use. A pit latrine designed with the help of the local sanitary inspector could take care of waste disposal. If adequate financial resources later become available, the pit latrine could be upgraded to a septic tank installation.Water transportation would be the modus operandi for these communities for the foreseeable future. Therefore, the Govt. should make available duty-free 25-HP Yamaha outboard motors for the people to buy, as well as provide them with technical assistance to help them design and build efficient and cost-effective boats to meet their needs.Minister Ferguson had informed residents of the Pomeroon region that drainage and maintenance of canals within their communities were not areas for which regional Governments receive funding to manage on behalf of the Central Government. Further, she claimed that the complaint she was requested to look into did not fall under the responsibility of the Ministry of Public Infrastructure (MPI), but she would nevertheless engage further with executives of the RDC and other ministers of the Govt when she returned to office.It is inconceivable that Minister Ferguson was oblivious to the fact that the Central Government has been, and is, spending millions of taxpayers’ dollars to provide drainage for Georgetown, East Coast villages, and other coastland areas. Further, the Honourable Minister must have been aware that the MPI has been dabbling with the drainage of Georgetown, East Bank of Demerara villages, and elsewhere since 2015.The rainy season is expected to commence in a few weeks’ time. It is therefore important for the Govt. to start addressing the needs of a desperate people, thereby alleviating them out of their misery.Yours faithfully,Charles Sohan

Despite constitutional provisions that mandate educational opportunities for all—regardless of tribal or religious backgrounds, many Liberian children, for a number of social reasons, are still denied those opportunities.Article 6, under the General Principles of National Policy, provides that, because of the vital role assigned individual citizen under the Constitution for social, economic, and for the political well-being of Liberia, all Liberians shall have equal access to educational opportunities and facilities to the extent of available resources; emphasis shall be placed on the mass-education of the Liberian people, and the elimination of illiteracy.Though excited about the prospect of going to school, many children, nowadays, lack the opportunity. For some, there is no money. Others are used as breadwinners for single mothers, or are simply kept at home—as domestic servants.Views solicited from some children selling in Central Monrovia suggest that they are faced with a number of challenges beyond their parents’ or guardians’ control; and so, they are compelled to sell along the streets and forgo school.Children in Monrovia and other parts of the country are faced with different challenges, thus making them breadwinners at an early stage.Some parents rely on the daily income of their children before the family finally gets a meal for the day.The Act creating the right of the child was created to protect the interest of young children and create an atmosphere that will provide them the opportunity to be brought up in a save society.These young children—that you meet on the streets—have the potential to transform the society and make major contributions to the betterment of Liberia. Roaming the streets as they do—with cold water bowls, candy buckets, biscuit trays and baskets full of peppers and other items—I don’t see them realizing their full potential or even have the opportunity to live like normal children, slowly getting prepared for the future.In a chat with little Alvin Thomson, 13, a resident of central Monrovia, he was excited about having the chance to visit a school campus, sit in class and at the end of a semester, receive a grade sheet.13-year-old Alvin sells bananas and ground-peas around the city. He reveled that his mother also sells bananas along the Waterside Market. His father is dead.The child told this paper that he has never had the opportunity to sit in a class room.“I have not been to school before; but I would love to go to school. I like school because when I see my friends wearing uniform every day, I am not satisfied at all that I am not a part of them. But I also have to help my mother because there is nobody around us.She is getting old now; unfortunately, I don’t know her age. She always tells me that when I sell and we save more money, I will go to school. I want to become a doctor when I grow so that I can save lives,” he said.Like Alvin, every child has a dream and potential. But how many of them are in the position to increase their interest in education, and their passion for learning, to realize that dream?If we must have qualified and competent youths tomorrow, they must be given the necessary support and the atmosphere that offers such opportunity to succeed.Michael, Sayeh, 15, who sells cold water on the Capital By-Pass, is a 5th grade student and lives on Camp Johnson Road.He is not satisfied roaming the streets in the evenings to sell his wares.“I have to sell when I return from school and by the time I am done selling, I go straight to bed. My parents are not able to send me to school alone so I have to help them in the process; that is why I sell every day.“My mum is not working, and my father is only a security guard. His salary is not enough. When I grow up, I want to work in a company to help other children too whose parents cannot afford as much as mine.“I do not have time to study my lessons, but I know I will become who I want to be in the future.“I am used to selling every day. I make sure to report plenty money to my mother so she can be happy with me,” he said.Like Alvin and Michael, there are many other children out there that we could not talk to or talk about; but they all share similar stories and experiences.As young as they all are, they are becoming responsible men and women. What if they are given the chance to learn well? They will become responsible citizens, knowing that their country, society, and family, depend on them for a safe, healthy, and happy Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Dr. Zobong B. Norman, President of the Bomi County Community College (BCCC), envisions the college as an institution of academic excellence during his administration if the right support is received from the government and the county Legislative Caucus.Dr. Norman told journalists at Fatoma Compound, the college campus in Tubmanburg, that six months after it is in full operation, the college would be on its way to reclaiming its rightful place in the education of youths as the first community college in the country.“My priority is to strengthen the college in courses such as business, health sciences, agriculture, and the technical and education sectors,” Dr. Norman said.His present priority is the resumption of the health science department that was suspended due to some major deficiencies. Consequently, the administration is working to ensure that the college meets the requirements of the Liberia Nursing & Midwifery Board.Dr. Norman commended the Bomi Legislative Caucus and expressed appreciation for their support to redirect the focus of the college to benefit Liberians, particularly students from Grand Cape Mount, Gbarpolu and host, Bomi County.“In this respect my administration is waiting for the reconstitution of its Board of Directors and to be fully empowered to get major issues of interest worked out for the direction the college is taking,” he said.He spoke of the need for reading and other instructional materials for both students and teachers, including his administration’s determination to get a large percentage of fulltime instructors to meet the student demand.“I realize that instructors at the college are all hired on a part time basis and I think it is important that we find the means to get fulltime instructors to meet the needs of the students,” said Dr. Norman. He further recommended an increased budgetary allotment from the government to meet the needs of the college.He said his administration has submitted a budget to the Bomi Legislative Caucus and after it is considered, he could get the nursing program restarted and provide what was lacking before the program was suspended.“I’m hoping that by early May we can get the nursing program going full blast,” Dr. Norman said. He added that the college has submitted a proposal to US Peace Corps Volunteers, requesting for instructors to help out in the sciences, including biology, chemistry and mathematics.He explained that instructors, including the hoped-for Peace Corps, would need residential quarters to make their work comfortable; therefore his administration wants the government and Bomi citizens to make their contributions to make his plans workable.Dr. Norman said his administration will set up a review committee, which will include students, to evaluate the performance of teachers in their respective subjects and provide support to those instructors who will need additional help to enhance competence in their core subjects.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) on Wednesday launched the Savannah Drive expedition which is scheduled for Friday, February 23. Once again, the Morakobai Village will be part of this event so as to develop their tourism sector.This is the second of 13 planned events which have been organised by the GTA, for individuals who enjoy the adventures and adrenaline rush.Present at the launch was the Toshao of Morakobai, Colin Adrian, who explained that Moraikobai, being the only Indigenous community in Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice), is hoping to use these expeditions as a method of introducing tourism in the region. He stated that there is a lot to experience and witness on the wildlife aspects of the region.Coordinators of the event and the Toshao of Morakobai, Colin Adrian (second from right) at the launchThe expedition will feature approximately 30 bikers and is set as a team challenge. Each team is comprised of three bikers and the objective is to complete a series of obstacles while incorporating teamwork among their fellow teammates.The drive will cover approximately 40 miles commencing from the Linden Highway. However, those who wish to stay in the village can do so where there are other outdoor activities such as fishing, bird-watching and camping with the villagers.The main purpose of this event is not only to promote tourism, but to gain international recognition, and give those who love motorsports an opportunity to experience the different terrains in Guyana.For those who wish to participate, there is an entry fee of $25,000 per team and registration closes today (February 22). However, there is a late registration fee of $35,000. Participants are asked to wear protective gears and practice safety at all times. There will be several medical personnel and first aiders to assist in any emergencies.This will be the second event that Morakobai will be featuring for this year. The first is a safari expedition by the Pakaraima Mountain Safari Club, which is set for February 23-25. Morakobai is the only Arawak village in Region Five. Since the village’s main economic activity, logging, has not been displaying significant progress, they have decided to shift towards the tourism sector. There are plans to further develop this initiative by constructing an eco-lodge in 2019.

Are you related to the late Rose Ann “Rosie” Campbell we think from Meenboy, Kilcar?It is believed Rosie left Meenboy on her own when she was just 18 many, many years ago and went to America. Maybe you were related to the late Ina Campbell RIP.Do you have a relation from this area who became a Bishop in Florida? Why you ask? Last year Donegal Action for Cancer Care were surprised & delighted to be recognised for our voluntary work by a lady Nancy Martens in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.This was to celebrate the 40 year friendship that she had with Jeannie Coverdale RIP & Jeannie’s connection with Donegal. It’s an amazing story of love & friendship. Jeannie made quilts & died of Breast Cancer in 2011.Jeanne was born Jeanne Marie McDonald in Council Bluffs, Iowa to Joseph and Pauline McDonald. Joe’s family is from Northern Ireland & we know that her mother Pauline’s family came from Kilcar.Jeannie’s husband Mike Coverdale told to us with the following “Her grandmother came over the pond and was Rose Ann “Rosie” Campbell. I visited with some of her kin at Meenboy years ago with Jeanne. “Jeannie travelled from our small town in Iowa across the pond five times to walk in her beloved Donegal. My memories of doing that with her on two of her trips “home” are precious, as are you all to me with your service.“I don’t know much but I do know Jeanne LOVED Donegal and that she was a gift. Thank you for helping keep her spirit around us.”In the spring of 2010, just before she got sick, Jeanne organized a tour for some cousins to Ireland. We are trying to follow them up but it is proving difficult. DACC are now asking for your help please in trying to locate who Jeannie’s relations are in Donegal. We would love to make contact with themIn recognition of this beautiful 40 year friendship, the quilt we received in her memory and indeed the fact that DACC have been sent it, we would when we locate Jeannie’s relations hopefully get a group of women & men to come together and make a Donegal quilt which will include Jeannie’s relations names & great places in Donegal. This quilt would then be sent back to Nancy in Canada.We would so like to do this & feel that this great story of what cancer can do which includes the poem “ What Cancer Cannot Do” deserves the effort. If so can you please contact me Betty Holmes Donegal Action for Cancer Care.

Steven Sserwadda celebrates after scoring one of his two goals against Djibouti on Monday. (PHOTOS/FUFA)CECAFA U17 Championships Djibouti 1-5 UgandaPece Stadium, GuluMonday, 23-09-2019KCCA FC youngster Steven Sserwadda showcased what a talent he is as the Uganda Hippos registered their first victory at the on-going CECAFA U17 Championships.The midfield magician struck twice in the 5-1 victory over Djibouti at the Pece Stadium in Gulu on MondayThe 18 year old first calmly finished off a rebound after Djibouti goalkeeper Mohamed Mahamoud failed to hold on to a Kenneth Ssemakula weak shot.He then lashed in the Hippos’ third of the afternoon 8 minutes into the second half.Sserwadde who was one of two changes made to the team that started in the 1-1 draw with Eritrea on opening day, could have added a third but Nabil Ahmed reacted quickly as the forward lined up a ferocious shot.As Sserwadda was grabbing the headlines, Ivan Bogere, substitute Isma Mugulusi and Justine Opiro also got in on the act with a goal each.Bogere who had a 13th minute effort ruled out for offside, registered his name on the score sheet three minutes to the break as he chest-controlled Aziz Kayondo’s cross before slotting into the back of the net.For Mugulusi who replaced Di Maria Asaba, he scored the Hippos 4th on 82 minutes, four minutes before Opiro compounded Djibouti’s misery with a 4th.The Hippos who were criticized for wasting several opportunities on Saturday, could have scored more but were let down by either the referee’s call or poor finishing.Like Bogere earlier in the game, Najib Yiga also pit the ball in the back of the nest but it was ruled out for offside.Opiro saw a venomous strike pushed out for a corner by Muhamoud.Bogere who also scored the Hippos only goal on Saturday, shot wide from inside the area. Moments after missing the target, Bogere then shot straight at Muhamoud.Towards the end of the first half, Yiga had a shot cleared off the line by defender Mohamed Idriss.Despite the convincing victory, Hippos head coach Morley Byekwaso must be levied by some of the team’s defending.They conceded a penalty at the start of the second half and were only saved by goalkeeper Denis Otim who pushed out Idriss Omar’s kick.However Otim was denied a clean-sheet on 54 minutes as he could not save Khalid Osman’s effort which found the back of the net.After drawing in their first game, the Hippos now have four points from two games in group A.The other game played on Monday saw Burundi run out 2-1 winners against Somalia.The Hippos team that featured against DjiboutiStarting teamDenis Otim (1), Justine Opiro (17), Kayondo Aziz Abdul(3), Derrick Kigundu (13), Gavin Kizito (5), Kenneth Semakula (4), Hassan Senyonjo (12), Najib Yiga (7), Ivan Asaba (11), Ivan Bogere (9), Steven Sserwadda (8)The Hippos team that started against Djibouti on Monday.SubstitutesJack Komakech (18), Patrick Mubiru (19), Kevin Ssekimbegge (2), Robert Kitabalwa (16), Isma Mugulusi (15), Sadat Anaku Happy (10), Joseph Kafumbe (14)Sadam Masereka (20), Bright Anukani (6)Comments Tags: Isma MugulusiIvan Bogeremorley byekwasoSteven SserwaddatopUganda Hippos
