Lack of funding stalls D-Tweh Erosion Project

An Official says the D. Tweh Memorial High School ‘stop erosion project’ is at a standstill due to the lack of money.

James Tuma, Chairman of the Steering Committee on Sea Erosion in New Kru Town, quoted by the Liberia News Agency, said the initial U.S. 100 thousand the Government provided for the project is already depleted.

Mr. Tuma, according to LINA, said the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning is yet to transfer to the Borough Erosion Committee an additional 500 thousand approved by the Government.

Tuma is meanwhile asking President Sirleaf to prevail on the Finance and Land, Mines, and Energy Ministries to make the money available for the completion of the project.

Fear and disappointment is growing as the only major public high school in the Borough of New Kru Town continues to be threatened by sea erosion.

Students and administrators are expressing frustration over what they termed as inaction on the part of government to avert the looming disaster which has already wiped away the wall of the fence around the school complex and threatening the main building.
