  1. Kenema is in Sierra Leone. After lived in Sierra Leone for 6 years, I wish this news will not have been posted. This isolated incident does not refelect the values and the noble character of people of Sierra Leone.

    Long Live Sierra Leone

    • Well, it is ‘local News’, but we are grateful for your comments to ‘balance things out a bit’. I also know the people of West Africa only as very tolerant. Long Live Africa! (I lived only in Ghana and Nigeria) (with short visits to Senegal and Kenya).
