The Pujehun District Entertainment Association, (PuDEA) has awarded Hon. Mariama Munia Zombo as ‘Most Influential and Developmental Persons in the district.

The woman honourable received the well-deserved recognition as one of the most powerful, influential, and developmental personalities in Pujehun district.

PuDEA said Honourable Zombo’s exceptional charisma, dedication to quality representation and advocacy for the overall development of Pujehun district are truly commendable.

Receiving the awards, Hon. Mariama Munia Zombo said: “When young people recognise our efforts in development, we are inspired to give them more support and hope. Thanks to the Pujehun District Entertainment Association for recognising me as one of the Most Influential and Developmental Persons in the district. You are the leaders of today”.

Recently, Hon. Zombo generously donated ten integrated solar streetlights to various communities within Peje, Soro Gbeima, and Makpele chiefdoms.

The communities of Fanima in Soro Gbeima chiefdom, Pejewa in Pejeh chiefdom, and Dumagbay in Makpele chiefdom have been selected as beneficiaries of this significant contribution.

Before this intervention, residents heavily relied on kerosene lamps or torches for illumination, a practice fraught with safety risks and limiting outdoor activities during the night.

Expressing profound gratitude, community members welcomed the integrated solar lights with open arms. The positive impact of this donation on their daily lives was echoed by the town chief of Pejewa village, who remarked, “These solar lights will make a big difference in our lives. We will no longer have to worry about security and the risks of total darkness in the community. Our children will also be able to study and do their homework in the evenings.”

Hon. Zombo shared her motivation for the donation, citing numerous consultations with constituents where lighting challenges were consistently raised. “I am committed to improving the lives of my people,” she affirmed. “Access to reliable and affordable lighting is essential for security, social life, education, healthcare, and economic development. I am hopeful that these solar lights will make a positive impact on the communities that have received them.”

This initiative aligns with Hon. Zombo’s broader development agenda to illuminate her constituency using simple low-tech solar power, in accordance with the government’s commitment to the Tech and Infrastructure pillar among the big five game changers.

Since being elected to Parliament, Hon. Zombo has implemented various projects spanning education, healthcare, and agriculture, exemplifying her dedication to community advancement.
