Local News

The President of the New Kru Town Associations in the Americas (NEKTAA), Mr. Thomas T. Wulah has lauded President Dr. George Manneh Weah for saving the residents of the Borough of New Kru Town from further Sea erosion.

A Press Release from the Association revealed that Mr. Wulah made the statement recently at a General Meeting of the Association via teleconference.

According to him, the prevention of the advancing sea erosion came at a time when residents are making frantic efforts to meet daily needs demand while thinking about sea erosion back to back.

“President Weah has done a great and plausible deal for the people of the Borough of New Kru Town with sea erosion by stabilizing the dune with rocks and sandbags. By using rocks and sandbags along the shoreline, it helps to prevent the erosion” said NEKTAA’s Wulah in the release.

He expressed that for so long sea erosions have caused destructions of the Borough of New Kru Town’s shoreline, thereby leaving hundreds of residents displaced and properties damaged, including the only public high school, D. Tweh that almost faced erosion.

“But thank God that the farsighted and swift emergency approach of President Dr. George Manneh Weah restored dignity to the residents by providing a quick fix to the ever advancing erosion. I lived along the beach side of the Borough and witnessed the high rise of sea waves running on the shorelines of sand beaches destroying properties and at times people died from these erosions,” Mr. Wulah said.

He continued, “At least, D. Tweh is saved and residents living along the shorelines are now worry-free because of the farsightedness of President Weah.

In a related development, Mr. Wulah has hailed the membership of NEKTAA, residents of the Borough and partners for the Association’s Library project in the Borough.

President Wulah said by placing more interest in the second public Library in the Republic of Liberia, studying and research activities in the Library will reduce long travels by students in Central Monrovia to carry on research.

It can be recalled that on May 25, 2018, President Weah cut ribbons to the Borough’s Library marking its official opening. During the ceremony, President Weah defined education attributing to his struggle for better education by way of research through the availability of Libraries.

“If you want for education to be taken seriously, then you can say education is George Weah”, said President Dr. George Manneh Weah.

Mr. Thomas Wulah thanked the President for gracing the occasion, in the wake of his busy schedules, and called on partners for full support to the Library.

“My Administration and the entire membership of NEKTAA will work with partners to make sure the Library provides a conducive environment for students.”

Meanwhile, Mr. Wulah has announced that installation of Internet service in the Library has begun. He made the disclosure on Monday, February 4, 2019 when he received a text message from Library Administrator, Mrs. Lucinda Worquea. Mr. Wulah thanked President George Manneh Weah for living up to his promise by technically localizing the Library with Internet service.

The New Kru Town Association in the Americas (NEKTAA) was founded in March 2006 in New Castle, Delaware to encourage and develop cooperation amongst the current and between the former residents of the Borough of Kru Town residing in the Americas.
