Assembly Member for Kulmasa Community in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District of Savannah Region, Mr. Mwinlanaa Abudu has expressed worry over the lack of Jobs in the community which has affected the livelihood of the people.
Explaining the issue to Upperwestmedia Team in Kulmasa, he stated that most of the youth have gone into cashew faming due to partnership with OLAM, a cashew company which supports them.
“All youths have independent targets in Business but it’s Difficult to find jobs, we are currently into cashew business through the support of OLAM whilst others are into retail of goods and services”.
An Elder within the community by name Mwini Mamuda also stated that the absence of jobs have affected them severely, blaming the nature of their roads for the development.
“Our women have no jobs, the roads are bad, a place that is about 6km becomes impossible to access, one has to use different roots and in the rlend we end up travelling more than the required kilometers, There are lots of Communities around Kulmasa but due to the nature of the roads Motoking can’t even go there to bring farm products for us to sell, the roads are our problem.”.
