King Gray Residents Demand the Implementation of a Newly Constructed School

King Gray residents in Paynesville created a human barricade and protested, in hopes of creating awareness that their children have not been to school since 2018.

According to the aggrieved residents, the Nathaniel McGill Responce Team, spearheaded by its Executive Director, Arthur Gortolo, made a pledge to rebuild the King Gray public school, which is in a deplorable state.

But to the community’s dismay, the project has not begun, which has led them to take to the streets in protest.

Residents accused the response team of tricking them.

Arthur Gortolo, who is also a political aspirant for the 6th District of Upper Montserrado, assured the King Gray residents that they will intervene.

Arthur clarified that the Responce Team had done its part by supplying 200 bags of cement and building material that he claimed, was stolen by the residents.

The real challenge, Arthur explained, was caused by the delay in getting a full fledged contractor to construct the school.

‘’We made the pledge to build the school and we will. This time around I will be here until the contractor arrives,” he said as he waited for the arrival of one.

He also apologised for the delay, while advising the community leaders not to let the residents steal their supplies again.

King Gray has also been seen as a community that is infested with drugs. This has been an issue which has caused many organizations to not get fully engaged with the community.

Minister Nathaniel McGill has supported District #6 since last year with abundant relief. He presented L$5M to the market women as a start-up loan to enhance their livelihoods. A modern market building was constructed to hold the businesses for the women.
