The people of Kabala Town in the Koinadugu District are grateful to Momoh Kemoh Konte for providing them with an ultra- modern clock tower, which has helped to beautify the town.

Momoh Konte said there is a positive competition amongst major stakeholders in Koinadugu District.
‘’We don’t fight one another but have embraced development for the good of our district,’’ he said, adding that dozens of solar lights will arrive in the country from Spain in January to beautify Kabala Town in order to make it look like New York City.
Mr. Konteh pledged his further support to develop the district.

His effort, he said, has facilitated GSM Companies to connect major towns in the district. He also commended the contractor for a job well done.
In his statement, President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma was happy to see that Koinadugu people have not only been focusing on fighting Ebola but also embarking on development projects.
He pointed out that the various projects he launched during his holiday visit to the district are single handedly undertaken by sons of the soil. He thanked Momoh Konte for the impressive work which has presented a landmark in Kabala Town.
The President called for structures around the clock tower to be modernized to befit its beauty. ‘’I am happy with the spirit of team work and collaboration among Koinadugu people,’’ he said, and added that people should learn to compete for development and not to undermine one another.
Momoh Konte’s name, President Koroma stated, will go down in the history of Kabala.
He called on the people to use the clock as a monument to tell the whole world that Kabala Town now has a clock tower.
