President George Weah has assured citizens of Margibi County that reconstruction work on the damaged CH Rennie referral Hospital will begin this Tuesday.
Speaking Monday in Kakata City when he visited the scene of the damaged hospital, the Liberian leader said he was informed that the hospital was gutted by fire due to electrical problems.
President Weah lamented that it was observed that the hospital did not have a fire extinguisher, a situation that led to the fire completely burning down a large portion of the hospital.
The Liberian Leader also disclosed that going forward authorities must ensure that measures are put in place so that the incident cannot be repeated.
Meanwhile, Health Minister Dr. Willimina Jallah described the incident as a sad day for the people of Margibi County and the Ministry of Health to see the County’s only referral hospital damaged.
She said the Ministry and the Margibi County Health Team are carrying on assessments to ascertain the level of damage.
