Deep sorrow overtook residents of Kakata, Margibi County political capital on Friday, March 22, 2019, when news broke that the county Assistant Superintendent for Development David F. Suahkollie had died.
He was 58.
Mr. Suahkollie and other local officials were appointed by President George Weah early March of 2018 to steer the affairs of the county.
Suahkollie, according to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) Margibi Correspondent, died on Friday afternoon at the SOS Clinic in Congo Town, Monrovia.
Koboi Weedor, the county Administrative Assistant to Superintendent Jerry Varnie, said Suahkollie has reported to work on Tuesday, March 19, but had complained of being down with fever.
“For that, he asked for excuse to seek medical attention in Monrovia,” Weedor said.
He added, “Suahkollie even called me on Thursday afternoon, but to hear today (Friday) that he has expired took me and other residents, including local officials by surprise,” Mr. Weedor lamented.
The news of Mr. Suahkollie’s death shocked the residents, many of them wailing and asking God as to why David died so young. Two of his family members, who nearly fainted as they were wailing uncontrollably, complained that they were not previously informed about their brother’s illness, only news of his death.
