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 LeoneSierra 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 ...
URGENT CAMPAIGN: Olivette BUCK is the fourth Sierra Leonean doctor- the first female - to test positive for Ebola. The three before her all died of the disease. She MUST NOT! This dedicated and determined physician had worked for over 20 years as a teacher before entering medical school and graduated in 2002. She is soon to be a member of the West African College of Physicians, I understand, one of the few to recently challenge this position. This mother of three and a committed and dedicated professional MUST BE SAVED. The Government of Sierra Leone, the WHO and all who can MUST HELP fly her abroad for treatment. Join the campaign to save Dr Olivette Buck's life! Share this, "Like" it, or do anything with it to send the message far and wide. Thanks
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), “If we did close (the borders), what we have only done is to alienate the people to go underground… And if they go underground, it means that people are not on our radar… And if they are not on our radar, we are not screening them. ...
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 ...

This prayer is from a Sierra Leonean who got the inspiration to pray for salone over this deadly ebola disease. Forward to all your contacts fast to pray this prayer. This prayer targets 100 people to stand on the gap for salone. When you pray,pray like you mean it: Our Father God in Heaven,we thank you for salone as a nation. We pray for mercy over every Sierra Leonean and the nation Sierra Leone. Lord we depend on you as a nation. We know our Leaders and Forerunners placed their confidence and assurances in evil powers and themselves. Human sacrifices,power struggles in governance and office places,sins of our Ancestors,immoralities,hatred and deceit have made you turn your face against us. But we cry unto you for mercy. 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 “national hero” for treating more than one hundred Ebola patients, died today… [ 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. May Allah answer the prayers of all those that were able to fast this year and to enable others to do it next year. InshAllah Sister Bintu Ibrahim, who lost her mom in fr ...

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 ...

The Way Winner of Opun Yu Yi Human Rights Film Festival award, 2013. Made by street Youth in Freetown, Sierra Leone, The Way is a short drama based on their lives. 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 Fatima’s 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 £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 £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 “After U Nar U …” 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 couldn’t 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

“Let’s Make It an APC-Only Affair” 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 God’s 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.

Sierra Leoneans we must help eachorder to build a better Mama Salone.Cause our politicians are working only to enrich themselves.They are not developmentally oriented.
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. One of the greatest Africa and American,called (Martin Luther king Jr ) once said ,"A riot is the language of the unheard,"my Citizens Brothers and Sisters,let's behave like better HEADED people of this country. 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.
To walk on some Nigerian orr Sierra Leonean soil! Jez!
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
Beautiful Sierra Leonean Musical Star Takes Nigeria By Storm My Life Just Started Di’ja Mavin Records, arguably Africa’s most prominent label, recently unveiled three young artistes; Reekado Banks, Di’Ja and Korede Bello, with the CEO, Don Jazzy declaring that their entrance into the industry will bring about an upgrade of the entire system. Our correspondent, FRANCIS OGBONNA with this piece, starts a series on the trio, beginning with Hadiza Blell a.k.a. Di’Ja, who in this interview speaks on her record deal, life, family, relationship with label mates and other issues. Excerpts… 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 Di’Ja is that every performer has another side to them, so using Di’Ja keeps me close to my name, while it allows me in explore someone else on stage Di’Ja 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 Deen’s 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 Leonean 850 troops want out of Somalia. Salary not paid and long service stay longer than promised:
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 can’t 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: • Part I: In 1998, Americans Adopted 29 Children From a Town in Sierra Leone. Their Birth Families Say They Were Stolen • Part II: That Was the Last Time We Ever Saw These Children • Part III: How Flawed is the International Adoption Process? Led by Abu Bakar Kargbo, ...

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 ...

The Highest and Most educated Sierra Leonean YET ! of our motherland . Davidson Nicol ! ~ Davidson Nicol, in full Davidson Sylvester Hector Willoughby Nicol, also called Abioseh Nicol (born Sept. 14, 1924, Freetown, Sierra Leone—died Sept. 20, 1994, Cambridge, Eng.), Sierra Leonean diplomat, physician, medical researcher, and writer whose short stories and poems are among the best to have come out of West Africa. Nicol was educated in medicine and natural sciences in Sierra Leone, Nigeria, and England, and he subsequently served in various medical posts in those countries.

Attila The Squealer! By Sorie Fofana The deputy Minister of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s 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!
If Obama was a Sierra Leonean… By Umaru Fofana “No part of the education of a politician is more indispensable than the fighting of elections.” – Sir Winston Churchill. While you mull over that I wonder whether you have ever wondered what would have happened to Barack Obama had he been a Sierra Leonean and wanted to run for the highest office in the land? Well, I have. He would have been frustrated and left to writhe and die. Reason: our country’s politics is broken and it kills those who are not favoured by those who have established a fortress for themselves and turned into fiefdoms our tribal groupings called political parties. Fiefdoms that will not hesitate to carry out a pogrom if only to keep their hands on raw political power or get them to it. I repeat, Sierra Leone’s politics is broken perhaps into smithereens. The personal aggrandising politicians seem more plentiful than the people they claim to want to lead. So also are the rogue elements in power and those around them who are mor ...
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 😢 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.

Gorgeous Sierra Leonean that u can't compare to no Liberian
I am 99.8 % Sierra Leonean and 0.2% Liberian. Mathematically, I consider myself 100% Sierra Leonean by rounding up 99.8% to the nearest whole number, 100%. We pride ourselves in RESILIENCE, COURAGEOUS, PATIENT and FRIENDLINESS. As we celebrate today, I urge and dare every Sierra Leonean to reflect on ways we can BETTER OUR COUNTRY AND OURSELVES. One of the greatest statement by Pres. JFK Jr says that we must not ask questions about what our country has done for us but rather what have we, as people, done for our country. Let's help each other rise up from DARK DAYS and teach ourselves ways of growing rather than tearing ourselves down. We need to teach ourselves on how we can start electing our politicians by their CREDENTIALS, QUALITIES, QUALIFICATIONS, ASPIRATIONS and POLICIES rather than TRIBE, AFFILIATION, RELATIONS.We need to learn how to identify POLITICAL LEADERS rather than POLITICAL SABOTEURS. We can do GREAT THINGS as a COUNTRY when we work COLLECTIVELY by putting aside our POLITICAL SIDES but . ...

Happy independent to all my Sierra Leonean brother and sister . Respect u culture!!!
Every year at this time, I reflect on the sacrifice and relentless struggle our founding fathers and mothers stood for to gain independence. Least we forget the blood shed of those that wanted the United States of Africa and end up paying the ultimost price. I also reflect on where we are and where we should have been. You see my fellow Sierra Leonean, the love of once country is deeply rooted in the heart and like a heart its bleeds when u know things are not going the right way. I will reserve my personal opinions but instead focus on civic engagement, rights and responsibilities which I will elaborate on in-depth in the next write up. To summarize it all, we need to love our beloved country. It starts from there. Happy Independence Day to you all. Abu Samu Dzcus

Happy 53rd independent anniversary to my Sierra Leonean people.bless up
While few are questioning what we are celebrating, the happiness that is going on in many Sierra Leonean communities is unimaginable. The peace that was initiated by our late President, Dr. Ahmad Tijan Kabba, nurtured by our current President, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, and the collaboration of our people to make this happened is something to celebrate about. No doubt about it we regressed during the past decades, but due to the lessons we have learned that when peace and stability become the foundation of a nation, prospect would emerged. On this foundation that our current President is developing the country. However, as we continue to celebrate this wonderful day, let us take into consideration the men and women in the military, civilians, and the journalists who gave their lives to give us the peace that we are enjoying today.

FLASHBACK PROFILE INTERVIEW OF JULIUS MAADA BIO By Lans Gberie (First Published 7th January 2011) PART ONE: MAADA BIO’S UPBRINGING, VALUES, EDUCATION AND BEING A SCHOOL TEACHER Julius Maada Bio and I had agreed a day before to meet at the lounge at Mamba Point Hotel in Wilberforce, part of the west-end of the Sierra Leonean capital, Freetown, at 11:00 am on a Wednesday. I was running slightly late for the meeting: I had underestimated the traffic at Lumley (where there was a massive road construction work going on) going up to Wilberforce through Spur Road. Bio is famous for his punctuality, so I sent him a text from my mobile phone stating that I would be a little late. He didn’t respond. In the event, I got to the hotel about five minutes late. Bio wasn’t there. I telephoned him. He told me that he had been there on time but was now about five minutes away. I didn’t believe him; I felt that he had simply changed his mind. I ordered coffee and waited. Thirty minutes later Bio (photo) appeared, br ...
Why should we go silent? Meet Matilda. Like most young girls in Sierra Leone, 15-year-old Matilda Yusuf is responsible for collecting water for her household, her parents and three sisters. Before Free The Children built a well in the Kono District, fetching water was a difficult, even dangerous task for Matilda. Sierra Leone’s national water and sanitation system was completely destroyed during the country’s decade-long civil war, causing widespread risk of water-borne disease. Although the war officially ended in 2002, contaminated water is still a very real problem in Kono. Stagnant water in the old wells is also an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes carrying malaria, a disease responsible for 40% of deaths in Sierra Leonean children under the age of five. Clean water isn’t a luxury—it’s a basic human right. More than 780 million people around the world do not have access to safe drinking water, a basic human right. We Are Silent.
A HIGH Powered Delegation of Economic & Financial Experts Attend IMF/World Bank Spring Meeting A fifteen Man High powered Sierra Leonean delegation consisting financial and Economic experts from the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development, led by its Hon. Minister Dr. Kaifala Marah have made known their presence at this year’s World Bank /IMF Spring meeting in Washington DC USA through their active participations and respective meaningful contributions in not only defending the West African Country’s fiscal policy, but also showcasing some of the factors that are responsible for Sierra Leone’s economy to be described as one of the fastest growing in the world. This came few days after the World Bank forecasted 5.2 percent Economic rise in 2014, from 4.7 % in 2013 in Sub Saharan Africa including Sierra Leone, and further credited “rising investment in natural resources and infrastructure coupled with Strong household spending. The first day of the Spring meeting saw members of the delegation . ...

The Mellennial challenge!! As mellennenials let us acknowledge social ills such as tribalism, corruption, and that are often at the roots of the malfunction of our society then propose realistic projects to curb them. If your actions inspire others to dream more, do more and become more, then you are a leader. Whether one has a college degree or none, whether one comes from a low-income family or a wealthy one, whether we are born with disabilities or not, whether we live in Sierra Leone or not, every Sierra Leonean millennial has the power to make a positive difference in Sierra Leone at the local, regional, national or international level. The key is to put our country first.We can create the positive changes we want to see in our respective communities. In the U.S. or elsewhere, other millennials may be looking for trustworthy Salone millennials with whom they can develop and establish their successful projects or businesses. Will you be up to the challenge? It is very rewarding to be recognized, foll ...
If you have heard the track Confidential that features Shadow, Idris Elba and D'Banj, please note that the version you are listening to and sharing was leaked and is incomplete. It was stolen from the original Sierra Leonean producer and manipulated by someone who claims they only did a fan edit. This Nigerian fan/producer has flooded the Nigerian blogosphere claiming credit for the record. Oh the sufferings of a creative. Nothing like intellectual property rights / laws in Africa it seems. SMH. I urge you to please stop sharing and wait for the final version. Its the least we as consumers can do. Thanks.
Is Ban Ki-moon Speaking In Tongues? By Mohamed Sankoh (One Drop) Sierra Leone has had many “firsts” on the international stage. She has made many accomplishments. And she is still accomplishing great feats to the astonishment of those who had once written her off as a never-will-do-g ooder country. Yet, like the mythical phoenix, it has been repeatedly and indefatigably reinventing herself. Every time the doomsayers start preaching apocalypse for her; she will dodge the sword of Damocles in the manner a professional boxer dodges a foreseen uppercut. That’s the magical and realistic-mythical thing about Sierra Leone. Despite the perceived tribal and regional chasms, religious tolerance and inter-marriages have been the centerpieces that have held; been holding, and would hold the nation-state called Sierra Leonean together. No matter the threats by and from the supremacists from the other side of the political divide (about another Ndorgboryosoi from the south or another rebel war from the eastern pa ...
Is The Mo Ibrahim Foundation Preaching Koromaism? By Mohamed Sankoh (One Drop) I have read media history, intensively and extensively, of developed democracies. I have also done comparative newspapers’ reportage of major African countries and even tiny The Gambia. Yet, I am still finding a country where most of its so-called patriotic journalists take pride in writing bad and negative things about their own country. For most Sierra Leonean journalists, the only good journalism is that which revolves around the “when a dog bites a man, that’s no news; but when a man bites a dog, that’s news”. In disrobed language (that is, without any figurative trapping), for many journalists in Sierra Leone anything that borders on the sensational and misinformation; anything that happens that will embarrass the current government and throw the country’s image into disrepute, and anything that will dampened the resolve of hardworking Sierra Leoneans is “fit to print” ( please pardon my journalese here). T ...
COMMENTARY Salone Pepul, Talk... People; Events; Ideas. By Oswald Hanciles God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion ...over all the earth.” - Genesis 1:27 - Your Lord said to the angels, "I am going to create a human being out of clay. When I have formed him and breathed My Spirit into him - (Qur'an, 38:71-72) Please, reader, hold on to the ‘2nd Biggest Idea’ (the first could be what came BEFORE the ‘Big Bang’) in the introduction of this piece – as has been written in the Bible and the Quran. About 15 years ago, the parlors of most houses in Freetown would have a plaque on walls with these words: ‘Petty minds talk about people. Average minds talk about events. Great minds talk about Ideas’. Even among the Sierra Leonean elite, when I do catch whiffs of conversation as I move along the streets, in offices, 90% of conversations would be on people – mostly the salacious or malicious type of gossip; 9% of conversation in bars among males woul ...
FASHOLA RECEIVES SILVERBIRD MAN OF THE YEAR 2013 AWARD, DEDICATES IT TO LAGOS PUBLIC SERVANTS, TAXPAYERS As Governor tasks Built Industry professionals to consider physically challenged persons in constructions.

The lawlessness of the average Sierra Leonean Just yesterday on 26th February I went down to the New Fat Kaj internet café at 5 Ross Road in Freetown to check my emails and to print out a few documents. As I settled down to read through my emails I noticed a gentleman sitting next to me watching on my screen and basically reading my stuff. I politely asked the man to stop looking at my screen as the stuff I was reading was private. The man responded: Ar go look, yai get boundary? If you nor want leh den watch watin you dae read go buy laptop en fen modem. I again said to the guy he is not supposed to watch on my screen and he said – internet café nar lek poda poda ar kin sidom any sai way ar want. If e hart you go police. I really did not need to go to the police because there was a female police officer there at the time whose presence did not make any difference at all. Talking about lawlessness and abuse of power way too many people were left stranded on either side of the Kissy and Tagrin terminal ...

I MAY NOT BE A Sierra LeoneAN, BUT I SPENT A TOTAL OF 17 years of my life growing up in Sierra Leone attending the UMC Primary School, then after sitting Selective Exams, I did CKC, and UCC, and Lower Six @ Bo School.

Drama featuring a popular Sierra Leonean rap star, LAJ and Big Fish, has now entered into the court. Only yesterday, he and a co-accused were granted bail in a case whose rap sheet resembles an American rapper gangsta trial: one minute they are out of court, the next one in. LAJ, whose real name is Alhaji Amadou Bah, spent ten days in police custody before he was charged on Monday over his alleged involvement in the death of three people, following a night club brawl. The incident that happened on January 14, sent shockwaves across the country's music industry. Breaking out in a night club in Freetown's jolly western end, it involved the popular rapper LAJ, who heads the so-called Red Flag Movement or RFM, and a rival group headed by another gangsta named simply as Big Fish. The conflict started when the two groups quarrelled in the club over a girl, allegedly provoking LAJ to fire several shots in the air in self defence as he boarded his car outside the club. An attempt by the rapper to drive away opene ...

Just thinking about some groups presently in Freetown dishing out money for there HOMOSEXUAL Campaign. I do believe as a Sierra Leonean despite we are poor we cannot join in such an act condemned by our two (2) Holy Books By Allah's grace.
It always irritate me when Sierra Leonean hate their fellow citizens and show much love and concern to foreigners. We should be our brothers keeper and not the other way round.

Liberia: Fast-Tracking Investigation in Western Liberia 26 February 2014 The Liberia News Agency or LINA recently reported illegal logging activities in the northwestern region of Liberia by some Sierra Leonean nationals. LINA pointed accusing fingers at a number of local government officials for abetting the illegal logging activities in Kongba District, Gbarpolu County, even though it did not name those involved. It quoted a town chief of Jawajeh Chiefdom in the district as communicating with the Gbarpolu County Administration on the involvement of the local government officials in illegal log smuggling across the Liberian-Sierra Leonean border by Sierra Leoneans. As the result of the illegal action of the local government officials, which began since January of 2013, a regular patrol of the border line in the district was imitated among youths and elders to ensure that Liberians logs were prevented from smuggling by undesirable actors- an action on the part of the town chief that paid-off well. Such ef ...
