RIVERCESS COUNTY – Citizens of Central River Cess District have decried serious setback in the development agenda of the district and county since the “unceremonious” closure of major logger EJ and J Logging Company. However, the company “unceremonious” deserted the forest on grounds that some “illegal” pit sawyers were intruding into its concession area. Basically there are CFDCs in River Cess County with FMC-B being the biggest with total size of 57,262 hectares and 11 affected communities with headquarters is in Nezuin, Central River Cess District. They wanted to come to River Cess and they are looking for place and I engaged them since their intention is to train young people. The people put me in mess,” Madam Kranyahn, who is also the Treasurer of the Liberia Timber Association (LTA) added.
