By Alagie Manneh & Juldeh Njie The spokesperson of the government Halifa Sallah has revealed that preparations are at concluding stages for the appointment of qualified persons to fill three different ministries, basic education, information and works, leaving. He made this revelation yesterday at the Kairaba Beach Hotel during a press conference. Mr Sallah used the occasion to reveal that the President has expressed concern following the Kitty accident involving members of the Coalition Government supporters. “It [the accident] has potential for creating social strife. That is why he [President Barrow] mandated me to go to the hospital for a fact finding . Eventually we received reports from the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital on the 7 of February and the Police report on the 8.The persons involved are currently being treated or have been released from the hospital, but all in all they combined to be 30 people.” He said the government has committed to provide “D5, 000 to each of the victims so that it will meet their hospital expenses and other expenses as families move up and down to try and take care of their love ones. “Investigation is ongoing and the person who was involved, who actually was driving the vehicle is from Niumi and his family has contributed D11, 000 as to the treatment of the victims.” He said they have already sent representatives to Kitty village to speak to the family so they understand the cause of the accident and to avoid any misunderstanding that may bring about a “civil strife of any sort.” He also revealed plans for electoral reform before the National Assembly election, so that the Election Amendment Act of 2015 will be subjected to review.]]>
