In Kono, Kamara Chiefdom Paramount Chief Warns

Representing the Paramount Chief of Kamara Chiefdom, Tombodu, Kono District, the Town Chief Saffia Ndomahina, in charge of Maima II has commended the developmental efforts of Pluto Mining in Kono District. He warned those elements among them who misinterpret and misunderstand the good works that are taking place in Maima in particular to desist from such negative propaganda.

Speaking on the damaged bridge leading from Maima to Sandor, Town Chief Saffia Ndomahina maintained that they are exceedingly happy that at last this bridge would be rebuilt and transformed into a two-way road with footpath for pedestrians. He recalled that the damaged bridge is forty years old but because Kamara Chiefdom does not have money to rebuild it, and because it is not a priority to the government like the one along the Ro-Cheko Old Road, it had not been repaired.

 He added that the bridge was built by the former National Diamond Mining Company (NDMC) to transport their gravel but that when they shut down operations they dismantled the bridge. However, due to the importance of the bridge in the area, the people of Kono repaired it by placing metal rods on the bridge until “we had it rebuilt as a legacy to our grandmother,” the Town Chief highlighted.

According to him, the bridge located at Maima had suffered from mining which was taking place very close to its foundations which is very dangerous. He added that this time round they are not going to allow anyone to mine along the foundations of the bridge. He added that for those of them living in Kamara Chiefdom, Tombodu in Kono, are aware of the issues and are happy but that there are some elements among them who misinterpret and misunderstand the good works that are taking place in Maima in particular.

He stated that Pluto Mining stands with the people in their development efforts and will assist in the construction of a school with a science laboratory, considering that there is no school with a well-equipped lab in Kono. This will go a long way to rebrand education in Kono. He also reported that Pluto Mining has promised to build an orphanage.

Town Chief Saffia Ndomahina used the opportunity to warn all those speaking evil of people helping Kono to grow mentally and to stop forthwith. He urged the public and right-thinking people not to listen to such detractors because they have a selfish hidden desire to destroy the development efforts of Kono District.
