Two civil society organizations in Bong have written to ask the government of Liberia to not honor any of the resolutions from November 12, 2018, Bong County Council Sitting.
Three suspected criminals have been killed in Bong as a result of mob violence in less than one month.
A road building equipment purchased using Bong’s County Development Funds has been damaged due to apparent mismanagement or poor maintenance schedule.
