Water shortage at Rokupa Hospital

Patients at the Rokupa Government Hospital have gone weeks without water and electricity supply. Reports say patients and visitors had to buy water from the street to consume their medicines and for washing and laundering purposes. Reports say the hospital’s management has made several reports to authorities concerned but that nothing was yet to be done.

 

WASHNet calls for rural access to water

The civil society Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Network (WASHNet) Sierra Leone has called one of the country’s water companies, SALWACO to provide clean drinking water for rural communities in much the same way councils are mandated by Local Government Act of 2004. Ansumana Soko, a member of WASHNet told a press conference in Freetown that local councils and the water company should stop the blame game and partner to provide the “badly-needed” resource for the rural people.

 

NaCSA, Immigration plot against irregular migration

The National Commission for Social Action (NaCSA) and the Sierra Leone Immigrations Department have joined together to curb irregular migration. NaCSA has presented electronic equipment worth millions of leones to the Immigrations Department to help the institution fight against irregular migration.

 

26 cartoons of free healthcare drugs stolen

26 cartoons of free healthcare drugs at the Port Loko Government Medical Store have been discovered missing. Six people have so far been arrested and placed in police custody as police continue the investigation. The stolen drugs and medical supplies discovered missing include Oral Rehydration Salts, Panadol, Gauze and other assorted drugs.

 

Ferry workers complaint over poor pay

Workers at M.V. Mahera and the Great Scarcies ferries are complaining over what they described as poor conditions of service. The workers accused the management of the ferries of not working in their interest. Some workers said they earn little over Le300,000 per month, which is not commensurate to the kind of work they do on a daily basis.
