The Team met with City Mayor of Bensonville, Martha Woheel, Cecelia Haillie mayor of Foya, Mayor Clinton Brown from Totota, and Mayor.

Amos Suah from Gompa city, others were the Mayor Garmai Gbelee of Zorzor, Mayor Maima Kamara of Sanniquillie, Mayor Samuel M. Berrian of Unification Town and Mayor Korto Harris of Voinjama.

The inclusion of both past and present mayors is to collaborate on incoming development projects.

For their Part, the mayors expressed thanks and gratitude to the Delegation and promised continuous cooperation to improve their cities.

On behalf of their colleagues, acting Chairperson Madam Martha Woheel and acting Secretary Korto Harris expressed optimism about the initiative.
