With only about two months left in the dry season, River Cess citizens are calling on their leaders to rehabilitate a 17-mile stretch of road leading from Palm Bush Junction to Cestos, the county capital.
Churchemah Wesseh and other fisherwomen of Wesseh Town have seen their livelihood threatened since miners began arriving here on the Cestos River with huge dredges five years ago. This fisherwomen’s town is gradually being drowned into poverty. The same struggle ripples across other towns on the banks of the river in the Central River Cess district.
Officials in River Cess recently violated the amended budget law by signing the county’s resolution in the absence of delegates, on a separate date after the council sitting had ended.
