Koinadugu Hails Momoh Konte
The people of Koinadugu and Falaba districts in the North of Sierra Leone have commended the Chief Executive Officer of Transtech International, Momoh Kemoh Konte, for what they described as his humanitarian support to the needy and his contributions to the development of the two districts.
As part of his effort to address the acute water crisis facing the people, Mr. Konte has embarked on providing quality water for the people of Kabala town by drilling boreholes in remote areas in the township. The first phase will target five water wells. Hundreds of people thronged at Mr. Konte’s residence in Kabala town last weekend to thank him for coming to their aid.
Paramount Chief Gbawuru Mansaray 111 of Wara Wara Yagala Chiefdom said the construction of the wells will in no small way address the water crisis they were facing, especially during the dry season.
He disclosed that Momoh Konte has been providing and still providing scholarships to deserving students from the two districts at various secondary and tertiary institutions in the country. Chief Gbawuru said Mr. Konte has contributed immensely in the education sector by constructing schools in Farandaia, Heremakonor and additional block at the Kabala Secondary School in 2014 in addition to providing furniture, teaching and learning materials to the said schools. He disclosed that in 2013, Mr. Konte provided thirty million leones worth of scholarship including tuition, books, uniforms to vulnerable students of the Kabala Secondary School. That fund, he said was managed by the Catholic Mission in Kabala to make sure that the targeted beneficiaries got the money.
Paramount Chief Member of Parliament for Koinadugu district Hon. Alie Marrah said the Transtech boss has also constructed court barrays in several chiefdoms including Mongo, Heremakonor to help in the dispensation of justice at the local level.
“Mr. Konte has paid medical bills for several people to undergo surgeries in and out of the country because of his love for mankind. The recent one is the ten years old Foday Mansaray who was seriously sick and had to be flown to Ghana for medical attention. Today we thank God his operation was successful through Konte’s intervention. We will ever remain grateful to Momoh Konte,” Hon. Marah said.
Members of the Bike Riders Union, Youth and Women groups and religious leaders also expressed gratitude for the support Mr. Konte has been providing them.
