Ebola is apparently taking its exit thanks to the resilience of President Koroma (who would not agree with the fact that he has been ably leading the fight), the Local Government Minister and indeed every Sierra Leonean. Even those Sierra Leoneans who have innately exhibited traits of stubbornness and unbelievable denials actually want the scourge to end. They were simply caught between the dictates of their natural instincts and their genuine sensitivity to the setbacks caused by Ebola. Unfortunately the former was able to go to town with its awful manifestations while the latter took the back seat. The Decentralisation Secretariat, Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, presumably like all other MDAs, is determined to engage top gear in terms of the implementation of service delivery activities to people in all 19 Local Councils as soon as Ebola takes its exit. This determination was articulated by the Director of the Secretariat, Alhassan kanu, at the first meeting held with his staff afte ...
Dear Friends, If you need to grow your business, brand, or project please do the basics for publicity and marketing. Do your press release, develop your media kit, pay for photography, develop a neat and modern website, contact news outlets to publish your release, have an advertising budget, pay for ads, and pay for professional work. We see many Sierra Leonean start ups struggling to grow, we all are. However if each of us wants to grow by expecting others to use their small businesses to give us free services how can any of us grow? Respect others and pay for professional services and our small start ups will turn into local industries. Until then everyone will continue to make only marginal gains as we sidestep paying for services.
New Years's Day Broadcast by His Excellency President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma Fellow Sierra Leoneans The New Year is a moment for resolutions, and today I call on all Sierra Leoneans to strengthen our individual and collective resolve to defeat Ebola. I firmly believe a resolution by each and every Sierra Leonean to act to end Ebola will see this virus defeated very soon in our beloved nation. The resolution must be action oriented and geared towards positive change. I am very sure that all Sierra Leoneans want this scourge to end; and it is therefore time for all Sierra Leoneans to follow up their aspirations with their actions. And these actions that are required have been stated over and over again. Do not touch the sick; do not touch corpses; call health workers to handle the sick; do not seek to disobey quarantine orders. As we make our New Year resolutions, these are the actions that we must commit ourselves to doing. As a nation, and with support from our international partners, we have increased our ...
Paying the Price for Years of Idleness and Corruption - Part 2 By Atomic Pen If Dr. Komba Mondeh had accepted to defend President Kabbah's imaginary five-year Food Security plan, he would have exposed himself to great ridicule. Dr. Mondeh could not invent a theory that was meant to be a lip service. The question is how could he have spoken about the key factors like land, labour and capital that would have favoured agricultural productivity when even the abstract theory was not on paper? In effect, Sierra Leonean politicians take the people for granted. I am not aware of anything promises made by any leader that have come to pass. President Kabbah had earlier spoken about the reintroduction of the railway and the construction of the proverbial Lungi Bridge which all turned out to be part of the country's long political history of making promises to build bridges where there are no rivers! Local artists ridiculed the SLPP for its fake promises and this was how the party dug its own grave. When President Er ...

Fellow Sierra Leoneans deep in my heart we shall overcome this Ebola Virus. For most of us this is the worst Christmas of the century in Sierra Leone. As a true Sierra Leonean this is no time for celebration while my country is struggling with the Ebola Virus. There is no time for me to join our Christian brothers and sisters to celebrate the birth of Christ while my brothers and sisters in Sierra Leone are on lock down. We all know the true meaning of Christmas. There is no Christmas where there is no true meaning of Christmas. The true meaning of Christmas for every faithful Christian is LOVE.

It was on a Wednesday morning - yes - on April 29, 1992 when residents in the capital Freetown were treated to, for the first time, a sample of the sounds from the war front in the east of the country where soldiers were battling forces of the Revolutionary United Front led by one former army corporal - Foday Sankoh. Before then, all that residents of the capital knew about the war that was raging in the country claiming lives, livelihoods and security of the Sierra Leonean were despatches heard on international radio and other media outlets about advances and/or reverses made by government soldiers sent to the front by their APC overlords. The overlords in the meantime refused to pay heed to the injustices meted out to a cowed population. They continued giving deaf ears to the loud and silent cries of the population as the looting of state and other resources went on an even higher level. Democratic means to have a change of government, the main item on the menu of frustrated and angry Sierra Leoneans fe ...
Rapid response team has arrived and the chaos is easing, but medics in a remote Sierra Leonean district are struggling to control a local Ebola outbreak.
Private Danielle Pattinson, of 35 Squadron 5 Armoured Medical Regiment, has recently returned from Sierra Leone where she has been training Sierra Leonean healthcare workers and volunteer hygienists in the fight against Ebola. The Army medic from Barrow-in-Furness was one of more than 40 personnel who successfully completed their task at the Ebola Training Academy, which they established at the National Stadium in Freetown. Their task was to train people in the use of protective personal equipment (PPE), which would protect them from coming into bodily contact with Ebola sufferers, allowing them to administer care to the sick and dying with minimal risk to themselves. Danielle said: āIām so glad to be home for Christmas. We werenāt sure how long we were going to be out there for until the last minute. They did say we could be anything between two and six months, so a lot of us had prepared to be out there for Christmas, so it was a nice surprise to be told that we were coming back.ā The training r ...
Good Governance is universal: From DipNote Blog- According to the African Union, Africa loses more than $148 billion to corruption every year. These costs are not only measured in terms of squandered or stolen government resources, but in the lack of public funding for critical needs. Appropriately enough, the conversation I recently had with an intrepid African good governance activist underscored the meaning of International Anti-Corruption Day by reminding me of the extent to which corruption can destroy the trust that people should have in their government and shake a society to its core. She also reminded me how critical it is for the United States to continue building genuinely collaborative partnerships and innovative programs for both preventing and fighting corruption in Africa. The 12-year veteran activist, Marcela Samba-Sesay, is the outspoken program director of a Sierra Leonean non-governmental organization (NGO) called Campaign for Good Governance (CGG).

Minimum wage raised in Sierra Leone The Government of Sierra Leone has raised the monthly minimum wage for workers to SLL 500, 000 (roughly $115). This is a 2280% increase from what it used to be. The Minister of Labour and Social Security, Mathew Timbo said that the new minimum wage for all employees will go into effect on January 1 2015. Before this change the minimum wage was 21, 000 ($5.75) per month. This rate was set 15 years ago when The Minimum Wage Act was gazetted in parliament in March 1997 under the Presidency of the late Ahmed Tejan Kabbah. This should increase the per day earnings for the employed Sierra Leonean from less than a dollar a day to about $3.3 a much needed improvement if government can enforce violators. Sierra Leone and Nigeria will have same minimum wage per month once this goes into effect while Ghana lags behind. The Minimum Wage in Nigeria is 18,000 Naira ($115) Ghana GHS 6.00 per day x 30 days is GHC 180 ($56). Guineaās set minimum wage of 440,000 GNF ($63.36) only appl ...

PRESS RELEASE The junior Doctors Association of Sierra Leone ( JUDASIL) wishes to bring to the notice of the general public that the number of health care workers getting infected and dying of Ebola Virus infection has become very alarming. To date a total of nine(9) Sierra Leonean doctors have been infected with the Ebola Virus (EV), seven(7) of whom have died without receiving prompt, concise and optimum care. While they render their services to the public, health care workers are uncertain of adequate care if peradventure they get infected. If this situation is not urgently addressed, more doctors will die and the hospitals will go vacant with no doctors to treat both Ebola and non ebola patients. We hereby appeal to the authourities and stakeholders concerned ( GOSL, MOHS, international community) to expedite the processes involved in developing a rapid response and to ensure that all possible means to increase the rate of survival of infected doctors are exhausted. LONG LIVE THE MEDICAL PROFESSIO ...

WILL ALL Sierra Leoneans PLEASE STAND UP! One of our greatest abilities as Sierra Leoneans is our knack to lament and vent our frustrations about our social issues to each other. Unfortunately, lamenting to each other will not change things for our people and our country; it only serves to give us superficial comfort. At this point in time, life cannot go on as usual for any Sierra Leonean, regardless of where we live, until our people and country are safe from Ebola. We are not going to make changes for the better in this crisis by lamenting to one another; we have to take some very serious actions and make concerted efforts collectively and individually to voice our concerns to the powers that be. There are many players who are making critical decisions that are impacting our people and country, we need to reach out to them in droves and let them hear our voices and concerns. Sierra Leoneans who are in the Diaspora, especially in Europe and America, can see how citizens of these nations use every opport ...

We wish them well in their endeavour.
An Ebola treatment center, built by the British army and Sierra Leonean construction workers, opened outside the capital Freetown this week. The center in Kerry Town includes an 80-bed facility to be managed by Save the Children and a 12-bed unit for infected health care workers to be staffed by British army medics. The construction of the treatment facility was funded by the British Department for International Development (DFID) and designed and overseen by British Army Royal Engineers. The site also hosts an Ebola testing laboratory run by British scientists to diagnose the disease which began operating last week and has doubled the country's diagnostic capacity. It's the first of six centers to be built by Britain in a bid to contain, control and defeat Ebola in Sierra Leone.
The shame of rumors and conspiracy theories as we fight Ebola in Sierra Leone Whats on my mind? I am just baffled, shocked beyond belief, and totally amazed by the rumors circulating in some circles in Sierra Leone that āI, Austin Demby brought Ebola to Sierra Leoneā and that I set up an Ebola lab in Kenema in 2008 that has resulted in the outbreak. If the Ebola outbreak hadnāt involved one of the biggest calamities that have befallen our beloved nation, I would have laughed this off as another Sierra Leonean silliness of conspiracy theorists but this is a serious matter. Professionally, I have spent my whole life fighting diseases all over the world. It is a very cruel thought for anyone to insinuate that I could even remotely be involved with anything as sinister as bringing Ebola to my home country. I have tried to avoid reacting to this as I felt it just fed the conspiracy theorists. People are very eager to explain things that they do not understand therefore it is important that we are all min ...

Olympic gold medalist Jeneba Tarmoh speaks out against 'ignorance' over Ebola. "I Am a Sierra Leonean, not a Virus". The headlines and photos are enough to scare anyone. "The number of people infected with Ebola in western Sierra Leone is increasing to more than 20 deaths daily," one newspaper reported on Tuesday. "Forty-nine new cases were confirmed on Monday." Here in America, the fear has spread from the disease itself to the nations plagued by the disease. A Texas college rejected two student applicants because they were from Nigeria even though that nation has successfully contained the disease. For people who have roots in affected African countries, it's beyond hurtful. It's personal. Olympic gold medalist Jeneba Tarmoh is one of those people. Tarmoh became famous in 2012 when she tied Allyson Felix in the 100 meters at U.S. Olympic qualifying but opted not to compete in the runoff. She is known for that split-second and that decision, but her own identity is so tied to the nation of Sierra Leone t ...

As at yesterday there were 114 patients. The donation of the items was made possible by the voluntary contributions of members of the group. About Le 15 million was collected from the 51 member group. It is expected that similar donations will be made next week at Jui and in Port Loko.

DO IT FOR Sierra Leone, NOT FOR THE GOVERNMENT By: Milton Margai Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad have been proactive in the fight against Ebola. Individuals and groups have been involved in volunteering; fundraising, donations, shipping much needed medical products etc. Nevertheless, the culture of mistrust that permeates the Sierra Leonean society has prevented a lot more people coming on board. CULTURE OF MISTRUST The reason most people give for not contributing to funds is because they are not sure whether their hard earned cash that they donate will be utilised for the right purpose. Fair enough. Some have got their own experiences; however, there are still honest people out there with their integrities intact. Fundraising is not my forte. However, when I was approached by Khadi Mansaray to help her and the team to raise funds for the Sierra Leone Emergency Ebola Fund (SLEEF), I obliged. I was reluctant at first because I am aware of the perception in the Sierra Leonean community when it comes to r ...

The indispensable role of IRN has once again been manifested, this time, in the war against a seemingly invincible yet invisible enemy-Ebola. An enemy that could only be defeated by an uncompromising resolve to use all our might to eliminate it. Let me hasten to observe that no better collaboration could have been done than the one with the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ). Although we were locked-down for 3 days, call it Os-to-Os Campaign if you like; the IRN opened up the space whilst simultaneously connecting us with the rest of the nation. I am convinced that the Network of Independent Radio Stations did a robust job by vora ...
BOMBSHELL What does the Sierra Leonean goverrnment knows about the EBOLA EPIDEMIC and why are they trying to conceal the facts, well its no secret now because the fact have started coming out. Sometime ago I did mentioned that the governments of all the affected countries are responsible for this outbreak and that monkies and bats are not the carriers as people have been eating them from God only knows when and it is because of the toxic waste that they allowed the industrial nation to be dumping in their water and been fed on by the sea lives that are in turn gracing the tables of their populace, I wasn't far from the fact but little did I know that it was from a laboratory in Kenema where a biological weapon was been developed and patients were been used as guinea pigs but things got out of control and the government hastily closed it down, it is not surprising that anyone who became affected is shipped out to Kenema as it is where it all started. Indeed the Pa don wok.
Open letter to President Ernest Koroma: The Ebola response in Sierra Leone By: SEM Contributor on September 5, 2014. National response and control of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) 2014 From: Mohamed C. Bah Date: 8/30/2014 Dear Mr. President, This letter is in reference to the mid May, 2014 Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone. As you are aware, I have, including, millions of citizens around the world solemnly pledged our unconditional support to your governmentās effort in fighting this deadly Ebola Virus. Many citizens have offered prayers, while others have contributed financially, donated resources and worked tirelessly to mitigate the intolerable loss of lives of more than 422 victims as of August 30, 2014 ā to this nefarious disease. We are, nonetheless, grateful to you and everyone in your administration who is relentlessly āsolderingā on to such unprecedented challenges our nation has ever seen. As reported by the World Health Organization (WHO) recently, the aggregate case load of the Ebola Viru ...

Sierra Leone Government Says: WHO Too Slow to Help Doc With Ebola By CLARENCE ROY-MACAULAY Associated Press Sep 15, 2014, 6:04 PM The Associated Press FREETOWN, Sierra Leone ā Sierra Leone accused the World Health Organization on Monday of being "sluggish" in facilitating an evacuation of a doctor who died from Ebola before she could be sent out of the country for medical care. Dr. Olivet Buck died Saturday, hours after the U.N. health agency said it could not help evacuate her to Germany. Buck is the fourth Sierra Leonean doctor to die in an outbreak that has also touched Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Senegal. The West African outbreak has been blamed for more than 2,400 deaths, and experts say it is out of control. The U.S. has called an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council for this week to discuss the crisis. At a heated news conference Monday, a Sierra Leonean government official read a statement saying that the Buck is the second doctor from that country to die because negotiations on evac ...
The World Health Organization (WHO) has classified Kenya as a "high-risk" country for the spread of the deadly Ebola Virus. Kenya was vulnerable because it was a major transport hub, with many flights from West Africa, a WHO official said. This is the most serious warning to date by the WHO that Ebola could spread to East Africa. The number of people killed by Ebola in West Africa has risen to 1,069, the WHO said in its latest update . Fifty-six deaths and 128 new cases were reported in the region in the two days to 11 August, it added. Canada said it would donate up to 1,000 doses of an experimental Ebola vaccine to help fight the outbreak.

USELESS LEADERS! Watching the news clip of the Minister of Health, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu speaking at an interactive meeting between the Nigerian government and diplomats on measures to contain the outbreak of one of the world's most lethal infectious diseases, I was frustrated and incensed. As the Minister spoke of the processes that the government had adopted in order to contain Ebola; including, intense training and public awareness of the disease and screening of outbound passengers at the ports, he also announced that the Nigerian government had no intention of closing its borders. The Minister stated that there was no plan for the government to, at this time, take such a measure but would not hesitate to do so when and if the need arose. In his words (I quote), āIf we did close (the borders), what we have only done is to alienate the people to go undergroundā¦ And if they go underground, it means that people are not on our radarā¦ And if they are not on our radar, we are not screening them.ā ...
Fellow Sierra Leonean, Ebola is real. Its rippling effect is looming all over looking out for victims it would send to their early graves. Be warned!!
WHY ARE THE United States VICTIMS OF EBOLA STILL ALIVE BUT NOT THE AFRICAN VICTIMS Why are the United States victims of Ebola still alive but not the African victims?I have a few concerns about this Ebola epidemic that has put West Africa under the spotlight for the wrong reason. The first case in this barrage of Ebola attacks was reported to have occurred in Guinea and quickly spread to neighbouring countries (Sierra Leone and Liberia). Like a wild brushfire, Ebola reportedly spread to other areas like Nigeria where the victim died and caused a scare in the country and the world because of Nigeria population Since then, Ebola as a health disaster has become synonymous with West Africa, ringing alarm bells in far-away countries such as the United Kingdom and the United States. The health authorities in the UK are confident that their system can counteract Ebola. So does the United States too, even when a suspected case was reported from the Sinai hospital in New York only to be quickly declared as managea ...

Lord we ask this moment that you wipe of this deadly disease in our Land and give us the victory in Christ Jesus. Amen. Please forward to all. It targets 100 and more Sierra Leoneans to pray. U are blessed as you help save salone.
MAADA BIO EXPRESSES SADNESS OVER DEATHS OF DR. KHAN AND OTHER HEALTH WORKERS; PLANS TO RETURN HOME IN THE NEXT COMING DAYS TO HELP IN THE FIGHT AGAINST EBOLA PRESS RELEASE London: 31st July 2014 On the 29th July 2014, like many Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad, I was deeply saddened by the news of the death of Dr. Sheikh Umarr Khan following his brief illness from the Ebola Virus Disease. As the leading Sierra Leonean virologist in the campaign against the dreadful disease, his sudden demise is not only a great loss to the nation, replacing him is going to be the most formidable national challenge; indeed how many of his ilk are willing to demonstrate the professionalism and muster the courage, compassion, dedication and sacrifice that so many had come to respect and associate with Dr. Khan in the face of the deadly epidemic? Despite all the attendant risks involved, Dr. Sheikh Umarr Khan never once wavered. He was a truly remarkable man and a great patriot. As we mourn and remember the great service he ...

The late 39-year old doctor Khan had expressed fears for his life despite wearing protective gear when treating patients. Sheik Umar Khan, the Sierra Leonean doctor hailed as a ānational heroā for treating more than one hundred Ebola patients, died todayā¦ [ 357 more words. ]
Sheik Umar Khan,the Sierra Leonean doctor leading the fight against the Ebola outbreak has died from the virus.
Sierra Leone mourns, friends. Our General in the battle against the hemorrhagic fever called Ebola is down by a sting of the same. Dr. Umaru Khan gave his all in this battle. He was in the fore front; and even when struck down by Ebola's bullet he refuse to retreat but fought till the second of his transition to the great beyond-- Dr. Khan was a patriotic and rare breed of the Sierra Leonean species. He is our hero. He lives! No compensation, no tribute, no accolade and indeed no word of those of of us who are still in the battle field can replace this man of valour, neither are we competent enough to comfort the families of Dr Khan and all our fallen nurses . . . compatriots, their actions speak volume! We salute you, Dr. Khan. And all our nurses and other Sierra Leoneans who have fallen to the hemorrhagic fever; your selflessness and sacrifice will no be in vain. Long live Dr. Khan Long live Mama Salone. Dr. Khan
Greetings Friends and Family, please support our initiative to contribute to the efforts at stopping the spread of the deadly Ebola Virus in Sierra Leone. As of July 24th 2014, there have been 219 reported deaths and 454 known cases (WHO). There is no known cure for the virus but through education and donations we can help stop its spread. I have posted a fact sheet below to help inform you about the virus. Where your help becomes vital is in the spread of this information (1) to help dispel misinformation that is costing lives back home and (2) to beat the virus at its game--by "liking" and sharing this page, you can take the facts about how to protect against Ebola viral, increasing access to life saving information to those who normally wouldn't be able to access it. Also see the link about donating towards this cause through Doctors Without Borders--A fellow Sierra Leonean (full disclosure, she's also my sister) Dr. Mafudia Suaray has started a campaign through Doctors Without Borders to raise $10,000 ...
Today, July 27th, 2014, we are just coming from visiting a bereaved Sierra Leonean family in our community, my dear wife Bondu Sidibay, myself, and our daughter Mariama for the 7 day prayer services of the deceased, may her soul rest in perfect peace.Today also happens to be the last day of Ramadan, to be able to have a community gathering of such in this holy month of Ramadan it's a blessing, even though it is a tragedy of a family in the community we never wished for, yet we are all able to meet and share cordialities, we thank God for that. We started the event an hour or two before Iftar wherein many people in the community recited verses from the holy Quran and did Mahgreeb and Iftar afterwards. The Imams in our community said the new crescent had been sighted and authorized the end of Ramadan. Thank God we did it all in good faith.

VISION-SALONE : rebuilding mindsets . . . B.O.O-SL and its VS presence have been backstage in passionate and rather mind-boggling observance of the Ebola pandemic in Kailahun District, Eastern Sierra Leone. And two nights ago, our President H.E Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma declared a war on Ebola; and it time to bodaciously take a cue from the First Gentleman of Sierra Leone. Ebola is real! and it's a challenge we as a people are currently faced with and we must take on this challenge seriously. I know the stuff the average Sierra Leonean is made of. It's one of courage, perseverance, solidarity in struggle, unity and bold compassion for compatriot and country. We were besoughted with a Civil Struggle for more than a decade, and we triumphed. Cholera showed its ugly face in the land that we love, and together we kicked it out and relieved our territorial integrity. And now Ebola? Well I know this epidemic is real and I know several of my Compatriots have fallen from its sting; I mourn and extend my condolences t ...

Working with street youth is never easy- imprisonment, beatings and lost clothes played havoc with continuity but the film got made and established Sierra Leonean actor-Desmond Finney- made a guest appearance. Since the film was made the group has formed the Way Street film group and has an ever growing membership. Directed by Alimamy Kamara, camera Sinneh Sesay and starring Tone Die, Bullet and J.J.

So the question which everyone keeps asking is: who is Fatima Jabbe-Bio? Fatima Jabbe was born to a Sierra Leonean mother, Tidankay Jabbie who hails from Kono district and a Gambian father, Umar Jabbe who lived in Kono for many years as a business man and in those days owned properties in Kono. Fatima Jabbe-Bio then grew up in Kono where she attended the Ansarul Islamic School and later attended the St Joseph Convent Secondary School in Freetown. As a matter of fact through her maternal lineage, her late grandfather Alhaji Marabou Jabbie hailed from Kono whilst her late grandmother, Isata Nabay hailed from Segbwema. But it is not all about her deep rooted connection in Sierra Leone, as a little girl growing up, born to a Sierra Leonean mother and a Gambian father who both lived as an admirable family in Kono is as much revealing as Fatimaās academic and professional career life. As a very promising and determined young woman, Fatima Jabbe-Bio holds a Bachelor of Arts with Honours degree in Performing Ar ...

In attendance yesterday 31st May 2014 at the Harford Secondary School Ex Girls Association Dinner at St Marys Hall in Camberwell South London was the Sierra Leonean High Commissioner to the UK Mr Edward Turay. When asked to speak HC Turay explained his links to the Harford Girls School and donated one of his books to the school library so that it will be read by the students. Then HC Turay brought up the issue of the former High Commission building at Portland Place and the efforts that are already underway to try and recover that building on behalf of the Sierra Leonean government and people. The building according to HC Turay was sold for a paltry Ā£80,000. And it is a known fact that one of the operatives working at the High Commission in the 1990s sold this building. Now very serious efforts are ongoing to get back this building and a ruling has been made in favour of the Sierra Leonean government. There is only one catch- the building is now worth a staggering Ā£48 million pounds- and that is 600 tim ...
Fighting EVD in Sierra Leone; Is SEA The Ebola Virus? It is very obvious that the issue of the Ebola Virus has been a constant topic of discussion since the outbreak started in neighbouring Guinea. The Ebola Virus by all indications is a dreadful disease that has the propensity of claiming several lives within the shortest possible time and the dreadful aftermath of any contact of this disease to a significant extent is not an envisaged reality of any well meaning Sierra Leonean. Quite recently, it has now been confirmed that this contagious disease is now within the precinct of the Eastern Provincial district of Kailahun. However, what is appalling is the fact that discussions on this deadly outbreak especially on social media have been trivialized and politicized by some rabble-rousing unpatriotic Sierra Leoneans of which I have the firm belief that is a smear crackdown on the national efforts in salvaging the outbreak. It is crystal clear that this is a national concern and as a nation we should all cl ...

Sierra Leone News: Presidential term debate: I woke up the other day to several Sierra Leonean newspapers headlining the presidential term debate. None, however, piqued my immediate attention as the May 5, 2014 Awareness Times piece headlined āAfter U Nar U ā¦ā To paraphrase the report, President Ernest Bai Koroma on May 1, 2014 was quite equivocal while addressing calls by some supporters of his All Peoples Congress (APC) that he consider another bid for the presidency at the expiration of his final second term in 2017. In a nutshell, the report revealed that the President was less than committal about seeking a third term or not, and that he would make a decision at the appropriate time. After reading the passionate viewpoints by proponents and opponents in the debate in other news outlets, I couldnāt help but feel upbeat about the rooting of free speech in the countryin spite of the isolated report of one government official threatening arrest for anyone with contrary view to extending the presi ...
I think I should be awarded an honorary degree by Havard, Stanford, Yale or somebody for real. The number of Unions that have been formed & the number of international babies born through my events over the past 25yrs could prob be half the size of Texas or Lagos.

( 20yrs+ is not 2yrs people) I have seen a Nigerian marry Jamaica, Sudanese marry Cameroonian, Sierra Leonean, marry Nigerian, Ghanaian marry Nigerian, Trinidadian marry South African, Malian marry Kenyan, American marry Liberian, Congolese marry a Guinean, Caribbean marry African, Black marry White etc.all through these international events I have done around the world, thus making international babies & bringing the world together. That's a lot of contribution to society) Now don't ask me how old I am. Happy Sunday people.lol

āLetās Make It an APC-Only Affairā Written by Kelfala M. Kallon The scriptures of the Judeo-Christian religions (Christianity, Islam, and Judaism) teach us that God created and placed our forebears (Adam and Eve) in a paradise called Eden, where they were destined to experience no hardship if they obeyed His only commandment to not eat the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge. We are also taught that Godās disgraced former head angel, Lucifer, angry that God had placed mankind above him, transformed himself into a slithery, silver-tongued snake and deceitfully persuaded Adam and Eve into disobeying God. Consequently, they were tossed out of Eden and we (their progeny) were punished to a life of hardship on earth. Similarly, in the 1960s, a political movement known as the APC emerged in Sierra Leone under the leadership of a silver tongue known as Siaka Stevens. Lucifer-like, Stevens proceeded to convince Sierra Leoneans that their life under the SLPP government of Albert Margai was significantly infer ...
Oh yes, we are back in the dirty gutters of divisive politics so we will be robbed of an opportunity to see real issues-based electioneering process. It is becoming clearer by every passing day that the 2017 polls will be based on knowing the genealogical background of candidates and squaring up between diasporan Liberians and those based at home. Folks will want us to know if a candidate originates from Senegal, Guinea, Ghana, America, Sudan, Cote d'Ivoire,etc as well as determining the loyalty of said candidates to the country based on where he or she resides. Are we prepared to go back and annul the tenure of JJ Roberts and all those who had genealogical backgrounds in the West or do the same with Charles DB King and E J Roye who were Nigerians or Sawyer who had Sierra Leonean background or most recent President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf who has a german background Hm.Liberia is far from serious politics and so we will remain backward for a very , very long time
Don't ever get in conflict with any one or with the law, even if you are right. Because their is no Justice in Sierra Leone, and that is a plain fact. Am loosing my patience with my beloved Sierra Leone. Ssssmh the system is rotten from the top... God save Sierra Leone, nothing sims to be working well. No Light, no water which are the basic utilities for life. And can you imagine for over 2 months now, their are no figure head at the National Power Authority or to say a Minister for energy and power. Are their no competent Sierra Leonean to fill in those position?

MY Sierra LeoneAN PEOPLE, LET'S NOT FIGHT OVER SLANGS LANGUAGE. The slang language"AFTER YOU NA YOU"is causing much problem in all levels of Citizens lives in Sierra Leone.

We are pleading to all citizens of our beloved country Sierra Leone to focus on national issues .Election are over and let wait for 2018.The races is not for the week but for those who can endure it.

How "mas mas bizznes" ruined Sierra Leone A Sierra Leonean professional worker who got an employment in Freetown recently turned it down and returned to the US because the pay and the condition was way below the standards of what she used to get. She was encouraged to take the job not because of the pay and condition but for the "mas mas". She would have non of it as this was not what she was used to. For those that are employed in Sierra Leone and living way above their monthly salary it is the "mas mas" that keeps them on top of their game. For many of us who may have worked for over a decade where this practice is taboo how can we ever consider working home when the concept of "mas mas" has become a strange thing. How can we fully define "mas mas"?
"They (Sierra Leonean troops) were not expecting this level of resistance and many of them have apparently come to see that

Our correspondent, FRANCIS OGBONNA with this piece, starts a series on the trio, beginning with Hadiza Blell a.k.a. DiāJa, who in this interview speaks on her record deal, life, family, relationship with label mates and other issues. Excerptsā¦ Can you tell us a little but about yourself? My name is Hadiza Blell, my middle name is Salma. DiJa is the short form for Hadija, which most people say is the Arabic version of Hadiza. One of the reasons I picked DiāJa is that every performer has another side to them, so using DiāJa keeps me close to my name, while it allows me in explore someone else on stage DiāJa for me is just like a risk-taker, while Hadiza ...
Shooting Stars conceded a goal in each half to suffer a 2-0 defeat at home to Black Satellites of Ghana to the disappointment of thousands of fans at the entertaining match at the newly construction stadium in Bo on Saturday. The match was among 2015 CAF U-20 African Youth Championship second round first leg qualifying games slated for the weekend, and it was the first ever between the two teams. Shooting Stars now have a huge mountain to climb to overturn the result in the second leg encounter in Ghana which is unlikely to happen. Man of the match Prosper Kassim set up midfielder Dennis Tetteh to score the first goal in the 38th minute before he sealed the victory for the visitors eight minutes to full time. Shooting Stars started well as they controlled the first quarter of the game with beautiful passing football on a solid pitch, but it was Black Satellites who created clear open chances and should have won by a wider margin. The Sierra Leonean team even threatened to score before the Ghanaians took t ...

Sierra Leonean defender hope for Leone stars return By Prince Scott After a highly promising start to 2013/14, league season Ahmed Deenās season succumbed to injury, with the richly talented defender once more enduring the frustration of a long spell on the sidelines he has been out of action with a broken foot and Achilles which kept him out of action for four months two weeks. He returned to action in April, impressing in three FA Cup with his club, now Ahmed is fully fit and is ready for a new challenge with his club and the Sierra Leonean national team. Over the weekend he spoke to SALONE FUTBOL about his injury and his games in an exclusive interview. SF- How HAS LIFE BEEN WITH YOU SINCE YOU WERE ON THE SIDELINE? AD- Hmm life has been very tough with me because been a regular player in your team and you have an injury that kept you out of actions for about five months is not a good thing to recall. Also I was not normal with the situation because i always wanted to play and improve on my games. SF- ...
My million dollar question is; when will Sierra Leone have constant electricity, good water supply , proper housing , good sanitation and good health care for its population? Good education and jobs for its population? The progress is sluggish! In my mind their is a super young star called MKM for short; Mohamed k Mansaray who is aspiring for the position of the president come 2018 under ADM; Alliance Democratic Movement ! I think it's about time for Sierra Leoneans to wake up and join forces to put this dynamic young star in to power to rule Sierra Leone as president for a good prosperity for the people. Thank you !
NIGERIAN PROFESSORS SAY PRESIDENT ERNEST KOROMA IS DOING A REMARKABLE JOB IN Sierra Leone. VERY PROUD OF WHAT I HEARD ABOUT MY BOSS Ladies and Gentlemen, last Saturday, I dragged myself out of the house because my wife was invited to deliver the keynote address at a Mothers' Day ceremony--The 80th Birthday of the mother of a leading Nigerian woman here , timed to coincide with Mothers Day , thus making the huge occasion a celebration of Mothers' Day, Nigerian-style ! ! ! It was difficult for me. My feet are still swollen and burning . They hate to be worn in shoes . Walking was painful, but I had to be there to give support to my wife and secondly she was addressing a basically non-Sierra Leonean audience . You have to keep praying for me for these feet because they do not want to cooperate at all . I cannot conceal this information from you . As I told you last, the neuropathy doctor said I suffered nerve damage on my feet due to Diabetes. PLEASE PRAY FOR ME. Thankfully, I was highly honored at the occas ...

Sierra Leoneans i am under serious attacked, i try to post it for friends to see it, but most said i should delete it, my name was published in three papers the same day, and now repeated threatening messages to me daily and one funny thing i do not know these people in person but they are from the Pa o Pas family, the Maada Bio Squad, is true they wil not make as long as i am their main block aid to their irregularities. They have a plan just like they did to Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden using witch horn and they are hunting for me daily. Take note.
This latest video is so disheartening but the callous indifference and hair-splitting by a certain "tendency"on social media is even more infuriating. Are these girls not Nigerians deserving of protection by all organs of the Nigerian state assuming for one crazy moment that this was planned by enemies of the President? It seems we were more united in defence of Liberians and Sierra Leoneans in the past! Beware of what you ask for-a rump breakaway Nigerian state beset by hostile neighbours on all sides?

Saleh Alzahrani - a true friend of Sierra Leone He has visited Sierra Leone twice. He describes his visits as very successful. Saleh Alzahrani (in warm hand shake with Ambassador M.S Kargbo in photo one) is the General Manager of Manaber Investment Company with offices in Makkah and Jeddah in the Western region of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. You canāt talk about Real Estate business without mentioning his name. He has other lucrative businesses in and out of the Kingdom. The annual Muslim pilgrimage has become a lucrative business in recent years, proving a great financial asset to the economy of the oil-rich Gulf nation of Saudi Arabia. The highest rents in Saudi are found in the holy city of Makkah. Owners of hotels close to the Grand Mosque of Makkah ask for over $ 600 a night. Super-tall buildings are filling the Makkah skyline at an unstoppable pace. The ancient city's centuries-old sites are giving way to glitzy luxury hotels, which are not affordable for many pilgrims. Fortunately for Sierra Leo ...

On this day gone by: A senior fellow at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism at Brandeis University, E.J. Graff, publishes findings on the twenty-nine adoptions in 1998, from Sierra Leone to the United States. That was 2 years ago today May 11, 2012. A Commission set up by the Government of Sierra Leone concluded the adoptions were fraudulent. However, no criminal charges have been pronounced. The adoptions were carried out by an NGO, Help A Needy Child International. (HANCI). According to the Associated Press, Sierra Leonean-American ballerina, Michaela DePrince, is one of the HANCI adoptions. A contributing editor at American Prospect, Graff has written thoroughly on this subject in the following and other publications: ā¢ Part I: In 1998, Americans Adopted 29 Children From a Town in Sierra Leone.

Well meaning Sierra Leoneans should not be banboosing themselves with the issue of third cleptocracy!!. No room for that in Sierra Leone ! the former MP that brought out that debate mr Robin Farlay now his name had been mentioned in Kenema when the H E president went to pay his last respect to the late resident menister Hon WJ Smith.His name among many names has been voiced for the replacement of the of the late man . I pray that HE would consider him so that he can sealed out his baseless debate back to his table. That is the game! always try to butter your bread. HE himself has coppied examples from other ex president in africa, for their democratic tenure in office. Among many like JJ Rowlins John Kufour of Ghana, Late president Kabba of Sierra Leone , Alpha Umaru Kunare of mali , Abdulai Wade of senegal even though he made the attemt but failed and the great Obassanjo of nigeria all these eminent politicians are now playing vital roles in the peace building across the continent and the wor ...

Attila The Squealer! By Sorie Fofana The deputy Minister of Social Welfare, Gender and Childrenās Affairs, Mustapha Bai Attila is at the centre of controversy, once again. Last week, he threatened to order the arrest of any Sierra Leonean who publicly opposes a third term or term extension for President Ernest Bai Koroma. Unfortunately, for Bai Attila, President Koroma was at the APC headquarters last week, publicly encouraging citizens to speak out freely on issues bordering on national interest. The shameless scumbag quickly put his tail between his legs and disappeared from the public gallery. Since his appointment as deputy Minister, Bai Attila has been engaged in all sorts of espionage activities to undermine his boss in the Ministry, Alhaji Moijueh Kaikai. Bai Attila is desperately looking out for promotion in the Cabinet, so he can do anything to undo anybody. Cabinet Ministers should beware of this dangerous reptile!
It's nice day outside on Friday evening with warm weather and nice sunshine!!

Is this really Sierra Leonean culture? I think the time has finally come for this country to confront the question of whether mask devil parades are truly cultural events or political jamborees that have been hijacked by hardcore criminal elements whose activities have forced people like me to stop by and think about the foreboding with which people greeAt mask devil parades these days in Freetown particularly as to those days. Is there no other way to observe holidays than to pack central Freetown with mask devils and all kinds of criminals? TO BE CONTINUED IN PART 2.

Im like the only Sierra Leonean whose never seen Blood Diamonds š¢ and I'm just now hearring about it
I'm probably the most patriotic American born Sierra Leonean you'd ever meet and the reason for that is not the country it's the people. When people speak about the country they talk about poverty despite rich natural resources, they talk about small population, they talk about war but despite ALL our bad circumstances I can turn on TedX talks and see a Sierra Leonean giving remarks, I can turn on Oprah and see a Sierra Leonean actor being interviewed, I can open Vogue magazine and see a Sierra Leonean's designs, I can randomly watch an MTV movie and a Sierra Leonean song is playing the background and the list goes on. So on this 53rd anniversary of our Independence I thank God for blessing the people of Sierra Leone to do above and beyond our limitations. I thank God for giving Sierra Leoneans the strength to overcome difficulties and always be a source of pride to their countrymen. May we continue to progress, may we continue to lift each other up. Forward ever Sweet Salone!
I want to wish all my Sierra Leonean friends happy independent as the country celebrate its 53rd independence.Happy birthday mama salone.
