‘No Plans to Stop Commercial Logging in Liberia’

The Managing Director of the Forestry Development Authority (FDA) Harrison S. Karnwea Sr. has clarified that the partnership agreement signed by the Government of Liberia and the Kingdom of Norway in September 2014 is in no way intended to stop commercial logging.

He was however quick to point out that as part of the agreement and consistent with the law, concession contracts awarded by the Government through the FDA would be reviewed to ensure that they are in compliance with the law.

Gov’t Seeks Funding for Lofa Road Maintenance

Deputy Public Works Minister Claude Langley has disclosed that government is scouting for money for the maintenance of the Gbarnga to Voinjama road in Lofa County.

Mr. Langley told a recent news conference that the road, which is currently in good shape  despite the rainy season, needs to be maintained.

The road was rehabilitated by Westwood Corporation, a Liberian firm.

The Gbarnga to Voinjama Highway, according to several officials who recently traveled to Lofa with President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, is so far the best in rural Liberia.

The Gradian Health Systems has donated an anesthesia machine to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Medical Center to equip the institution during testing and surgical operations.
Anesthesia refers to the practice of administering medications either by injection or by inhalation (breathing in) that block the feeling of pain and other sensations, or that produces a deep state of unconsciousness and eliminates all sensations. This allows medical and surgical procedures to be done without causing undue distress or discomfort.
