Bonthe Island, one of the biggest Islands in the country with unique tourist attractions and historical heritage, is to be revitalized by the Bonthe Family in a bid to promote socio-economic development in the country.

The Bonthe Family, an organization poised to revitalize the Bonthe District in collaboration with the Bonthe Councils and the 50th Independence Anniversary Committee has planned series of activities to celebrate the golden jubilee in Bonthe by undertaking developmental projects. 

According to the Deputy Head of the Bonthe Family Floyd Davis, several activities have been lined up for the celebrations of the golden jubilee in Bonthe Island so as to explore the eco-tourism potential of the Island.

He explained to our reporter that the objective of Bonthe Family is to facilitate and implement developmental projects that will transform the once cherished island for holidays to viable tourist hub in the country.

He implored descendants of Bonthe District at home and abroad to support the Bonthe family with moral, technical and financial assistance so as to undertake projects that will promote development within the district.

Floyd Davis said the recently organized fund raising gala and dinner at the Miatta Conference Centre on the 19th March 2011 was inspiring and successful to the satisfaction of the Bonthe family.

He said monies generated from the fund raising gala and dinner will be used to fund the widening of the Gbongboma Molakika Bridge and reconditioning of the road network from Bonthe Island to the rest of Sittia and Ndaema Chiefdoms to ease the transportation constraints within the Island for residents.

He additionally stated that the Bonthe Family has also identified another project within the Bonthe Township that will create impact on the lives and beauty of the historic island We are planning to rehabilitate the Bonthe Clock Tower (the symbol of hope) situated along Heddle Road and Medina Street in Bonthe.

Floyd Davis pointed out that the Bonthe Family will be organizing a reburial ceremony of the late Sengbeh Pieh who was reportedly buried at the Poro Secret Society Bush in Bonthe and a mausoleum will be erected in his honor for easy and convenient access of the public and visitors. He also reiterated that during the golden jubilee celebration in Bonthe, visitors will be opportune to visit York Island and the Amistad UMC church in a bid to reflect the historical significance of colonialism and its impact on present Sierra Leone.

Explaining further Floyd Davis said we want to explore the touristic potential of Bonthe for economic growth and sustainable development to increase revenue generation and improved standard of living of residents in Bonthe.

He went on to state that descendants of Bonthe District are encouraged to support the Bonthe Family to achieve their goals he also called on the government and relevant partners to support the development of Bonthe.
