Sierra Leone News: Kingtom Cemetery full

Officials of the Freetown City Council say the Kingtom Cemetery is now full to the brim and there is no more space for ebola burials.
According to the official, they had written to the National Ebola Response Committee (NERC) requesting for a meeting to find ways of solving the problem when there were only 400 graves left but unfortunately the meeting was not attended by any NERC representative.
According to the FCC official who refused to be named, the rate at which people were being buried had caused many graves to be dug and all of them had been utilised because of frequency of burials .
He disclosed that an alternative site was found at Allen Town but was found to be rocky and not easy to dig.
As a result, the cemetery was later moved from that site and when contacted the Chairman of the Western Rural District Alhaji Alhassan Cole promised to get another one at Waterloo.
