Nanette Thomas, the Chief Cemetery Keeper, Mr. Abdul Karim Kamara informed the Minister and her team that his men are busy clearing the logs from the site as the Freetown City Council has promised to provide a vehicle to transport the logs from the cemetery and promised the visiting team that the Mayor has promised to repair the damaged graves once the logs are been cleared.
