Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) has joined the national campaign against the “deadly Ebola virus” with a planned match insight, the party announced Thursday, July 17, in Monrovia.
In conversation with the Daily Observer at the party’s headquarters CDC vice chairman for Operations, Mulbah Morlu, announced that due to the sensitivity and spread of the Ebola virus, “CDC will on Monday, July 21, stage a big anti-Ebola match to create awareness on the virus.”
According to Morlu, the intent is to sensitize citizens about the danger the virus poses to the livelihood of the people, and as such, “more preventive measure should be taken in order to curb the spread.”
Morlu disclosed that the match will begin at Point Four Junction and ends at the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare offices in Congo Town. CDC political leader and Peace Ambassador George M. Weah and other government officials including members of the Legislature are expected to join the walk against Ebola, CDC said.
Explaining further, Morlu encouraged all Liberians regardless of political or religious affiliation to join the fight, adding; “This is about saving lives and there’s no need to play politics with this event.”
CDC attaches serious importance to this situation, Morlu maintained. He called on Liberians to follow the preventive measures announced by the Health Ministry in an effort to avoid spreading the “deadly virus.”
