The recent arson attack on the Tarjuwon High School in Sinoe County continues to receive public condemnation from several quarters with the latest coming from President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. The Liberia leader has strongly condemned the recent arson attack on the Tarjuwon Junior High School in Tarjuwon District, Sinoe. President Sirleaf described the act as a wanton act of violence that deliberately denies fellow Liberians the opportunity to prepare themselves for a better future.
President Sirleaf issued the condemnation when her attention was drawn to media report that the Tarjuwon Junior High School in Sinoe County was set ablaze by some unidentified person/s.
She said as the country gradually makes recovery amid the challenges being grappled with, it was untenable that tendencies that portray uncivilized roots continue to permeate our society to the disadvantage of deserving Liberians.
The Liberian leader added that it was unfair that in this day and age, elements of lawlessness in the district would find it fit to target the only junior high school established intended to serve as light in darkness and to mold the minds of young Liberians in that part of the country.
She stated further that it was incumbent on the leadership of the country to rise to the challenge in light of such bedeviling circumstances and seek a more patriotic way of coming around the situation in the interest of their people.
Recently, a former Legislative candidate and prominent son of Sinoe County categorically condemned the recent arson attack on the Tarjuwon Junior High School in Tarjuwon District and called for a speedy probe into the unpatriotic act.In an exclusive interview, Mr. B. Geeplaye Nyenswah strongly condemned the burning of the only junior high school in the Tarjuwon community and called on the Ministries of Internal Affairs and Justice to expeditiously probe the situation.
