Senator Kaipay Recommends WASH Commission
Grand Bassa County Senator Jonathan L. Kaipay has underscored the need for the establishment of a water, sanitation and health (WASH) commission in the country.
According to him, there is a need for the government of Liberia headed by President George Manneh Weah to see reason in establishing the WASH Commission in the country.
The Grand Bassa County lawmaker made the assertion on Monday, February 26, 2018 at his Capitol Building office when he was honored and certificated by former and current WASH campaigners.
Senator Kaipay furthered that if such commission comes into being, it would help Liberians in every part of the country to have access to safe drinking water.
The Grand Bassa County lawmaker lauded lawmakers of the 53rd Legislature who played vital role for the vibrancy of the WASH sector over the years.
Senator Kaipay added that the establishment of the commission and members of WASH engagement indicate that water is life.
He emphasized that the citizens of Liberia have the right to benefit from safe drinking water throughout the country.
Senator Kaipay disclosed that in recent times, he has dispatched some teams to LAC in Grand Bassa County to see how best his people can have access to safe drinking water within that part of the county.
The Grand Bassa County lawmaker then hailed members of WASH for the honor, noting that such honor is for the citizens of the county he represents.
Also making remarks at the occasion, Prince D. Kreplah, former WASH executive, proposed for the standing committee at the House of Senate to discuss WASH issues as it has been done over the years by founding an advocating team.
He added that if such committee comes into being, it would help bring great improvement to the country’s WASH sector.
According to him, over the years, the Grand Bassa County lawmaker has contributed to the water and sanitation team.
He added that Senator Kaipay has played a vital role in the sector for which he deserves such big honor.
