The Member of Parliament for constituency 25, in Kono District, Hon. Tom Issac Tucker has donated over 60 Million Leones in check to his constituency for the rehabilitation of schools, construction of school toilets and scholarships for the teachers in the constituency enrolled at the various teacher training colleges in the district.
The money is from the Constituency Development Fund allocated to MPs to undertake tangible developments in their constituencies. This is the first time an MP of Kono District is undertaking such a venture.
Constituency 25 comprises two chiefdoms: Nimiyama and Gorama Kono chiefdoms.
MP Tucker is yet to complete a year in Parliament, since he defeated his challenger, Francis Gbondo in a very tensed by-election in the constituency By Sahrlate last year.
