Weah to Turn over in Bong County on First County Tour Despite US$1.8M Development FundKokoyah District, Bong County – Not a single project will be dedicated during president George Mannah Weah’s three-day tour of Bong county despite his government dishing out a whopping US$ 1.8 million in Social Development Funds to fund projects from January 2018 to January 2021. This is happening amid lingering claims of mismanagement of county’s funds by the chairman of Bong county Project Management Committee Steven Mulbah and Bong’s Fiscal Superintendent, Paul Sulunteh. Ansu Sesay, manager of the Sesay Brothers Construction Firm, has been at the center of controversy for receiving funds from the county without undertaking a project. In March 2019, Sesay received US$ 9,000 for the construction of a clinic in Baryarta Town, Jorquelleh District Two and hasn’t constructed the clinic. Sesay’s failure to construct the clinic and the bridge projects in Baryarta has provoked uproar from residents of the town.
