Demolition Exercise Continues in Tubmanburg

Demolition of makeshift structures in the streets of Tubmanburg, Bomi County, is continuing following a recent peaceful protest by residents. The demolition of makeshift homes and business centers commenced last Wednesday after residents of Tubmanburg staged a peaceful demonstration, calling on the authorities to rehabilitate various streets in the town.

They noted that after the local authorities demolished their houses and business centers about a month ago, there has been no sign of starting a construction work in any of the streets in Tubmanburg.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency at the demolition sites, Tubmanburg Acting Mayor Edwin Folley McGill said the exercise would continue for 10 days. Mayor McGill said all makeshift houses and business centers would be demolished to give the city a face-lift.

He said the residents of Tubmanburg were happy as they saw the commencement of the process to improve the condition of the city. Mayor McGill has meanwhile commended the residents for their cooperation, adding that Tubmanburg must look like a city that is close to the national capital of a country.
