The women of the Jlazon Light Community within the Mambahn Administrative District have honored Margibi-Electoral District #1 Lawmaker, Representative Tibelrosa Summoh Tarponweh for his dedicated and outstanding contributions towards developing District #1, Margibi County.
The women group ceremonially presented to Representative Tarponweh a nanny goat as a sign of appreciation.
Speaking Friday, January 1, 2021 at the Lawmaker’s honoring program held by the women group in the Jlazon Light Community, the women Chairlady-Nounou Sharty described the Lawmaker as a “true developmental person”.
Madam Sharty highlighted Representative Tarponweh’s advocacy role played in making sure that the Israel Community and other surrounding communities are electrified.
She recounted the construction and rehabilitation of several feeder roads within the Mambahn Administrative District by the Margibi County Lawmaker, including the ongoing construction of the thirteen kilometer feeder road.
“We‘ve called you here today to honor you and present to you a nanny goat. Traditionally, it indicates that you are very productive and developmental. Our women group have been following your workings. Your Office rehabilitated many feeder roads, including the Goshen community road, the road linking Kaifa Town through Civil Compound to Goahr Town and the road corridor from FDA Junction through the Samuel Kanyon Doe Estate to the end of the New Life Community”, Madam Sharty explained.
Praising Representative Tarponweh for his supports towards women and youths empowerment, she added: “We’ve followed how you assisted in the establishment of the First Choice Women Vocational Training School within the EBK Barracks in Schiefflin Township.
