Sierra Leone Enjoys Real Democracy Under Ernest Bai Koroma
Sierra Leone today enjoys very good democratic credentials but this is not by accident. It is as a result of deliberate actions undertaken by the current President; actions that are unprecedented in our nation.

Sierra Leone Peace & Democracy just keep on Consolidating! RUF Party is now in Spokesman Seat for all Political Parties
The 1999 Lome Peace Accord was crafted with intention to let belligerent Sierra Leone citizens participate in beauty of constitutional multiparty democracy. Revolutionary United Front (RUF) rebels were Sierra Leoneans who very viciously rebelled against dictators and military junta; They senselessly in their wrath, slaughtered innocent civilians.

Logus Koroma has yesterday July 22nd 2015, convincingly presented Solid Case against what are now confirmed to be Kamarainba’s lies & discrepancies but MPs have raised concerns over seeming Breach of Section 118 of Constitution for which Finance Ministry is to be summoned... See all the reports in this edition including the actual number of seater-buses as against the numbers released by Kamarainba. Logus has shown that what was ordered were 20, 47 and 30 seaters and not 28, 44 and 31 seaters as asserted by Kamarainba.

Ebola Beyond Sierra Leone: A Nightmare might be unfolding in Mano River Basin
If anyone thinks the Ebola Outbreak in Mano River basin is something that is a trifle, please let me confidently state to them that the ongoing disaster is far from being something to put on back-burner. This is a time for all residents therein to unite and step-up our guard! The World Health Organisation (WHO) Spokesperson Tarik Jasarevic has now officially informed journalists on what many had suspected was the fearful realisation that the new outbreak of Ebola in Liberia with an index case of a 17 years old schoolboy, was not really ‘new’ after all. The outbreak never really ended in Liberia

Sierra Leone: Ernest Koroma Will Leave a Strong IMC
USA’s first black President has stated that: “Africa doesn’t need strongmen, it needs strong institutions”. Barack Obama meant that if modern Institutions are working well in an African country, that country does not need a Dictator to ensure law and order prevails.

Sierra Leone: Halloway Saga - Can Anti Corruption Commission help Bar Association?
Initially, I had assumed that the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) could help Sierra Leone Bar Association in the latter’s quest to blatantly whitewash an infamous member of Judiciary, Allan B. Halloway.

Sierra Leone: Reputation Ball is in Koroma’s Court!
Recently to mark the anniversary of the first case of Ebola confirmed in Sierra Leone, two researchers from reputable international think tanks spent a considerable amount of their writings quoting copiously from an October 2014 New York Times article which had incorrectly damned President Koroma and this government.

Sierra Leone First Lady’s Sensible Decision
We ran a series of articles last week on the scandal that erupted in Nigeria over the decision of outgoing Nigerian First Lady to hold a so-called Emergency Meeting of a peace mission of African First Ladies (AFLPM). The mission itself is not like the African Union where all African Nations are represented. On the contrary, this peace mission is recognised by only about half of the 54 Nations of Africa. It is also virtually funded by only Nigeria which hosts the Secretariat.

Our IMC Can Really Save Sierra Leone Afterall!
The Independent Media Commission (IMC) under chairmanship of Allieu I. Kanu Esq. has in less than one year, brought a huge amount of sanity into the Sierra Leone media. It is almost like a dream come true for many citizens to see how speedily and satisfactorily IMC has been handling complaints lodged against errant media houses.

Sierra Leone Judiciary to Consider Publishing Electronic Copies of Judgments
Sierra Leone Judiciary should consider publishing some of its key rulings and judgments on the Internet so as to make them more accessible to readers nationally and internationally.I say so because, firstly, the world is now an inter-connected global village and secondly, nature abhors a vacuum.

Ebola in Sierra Leone started with 1 Case - We must not forget
It is important for Sierra Leoneans not to let their guard down or become complacent in the ongoing fight against evil Ebola virus. We should never forget that this ongoing Ebola crisis, which has killed thousands of compatriots, actually started with just ONE case. Just 1 case!

Sierra Leone: That Police Public Notice!
Inside today’s edition, we are running a Public Notice issued by the Inspector General of Police. Whilst we wish to commend the Police for a proactive step taken, we also, as a newspaper want to come out to strongly condemn Police for turning a blind eye when citizens last week came out in T-shirts to gather on the streets waving placards.

Ernest Koroma is Constantly Inspiring; The Ebola Audit is Latest Example
One aspect of the tenure of Sierra Leone’s President Ernest Bai Koroma’s leadership has been his unique ability to inspire the world to have unprecedented perspectives; This has been to extent of Koroma charting paths that other leaders subsequently identify as worth emulating.

Ngozi Couldn’t Have Done it Better for Us
A little under three years ago, when Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, lost her bid to be the next World Bank President, many West Africans were peeved that a financial guru like Ngozi could be jumped over by President Obama and Co. for a ‘mere’ medical doctor like Dr. Jim Yong Kim. This especially as Dr. Kim by then, was unknown in World financial circles but more known for his expertise in infectious diseases. How could a medical doctor be chosen to lead the World Bank? We shook our heads in protest and dismay.

As White House extends Condolences on death of Dr. Martin Salia: From 500 to 5,000
The day Sierra Leone recorded 500 laboratory confirmed cases of Ebola was the day Dr. Shiekh Umarr Khan died from Ebola. It was July 29, 2014 and it marked a turning point in the way the country perceived the Ebola crisis. The death of Dr. Khan and the 500 cases finally convinced all of us; from President Koroma downwards, that a catastrophe was unfolding on the land. By midnight of the next day, it was a different Sierra Leone with a State of Emergency proclaimed.

Sierra Leone Politics: Joining APC Mouthpiece to Advise President Koroma : Brian Gilpin & Attacks by News Time Africa
In the latest edition of the ruling APC mouthpiece, WE YONE, a front page editorial was very supportive of the recently resigned Special Executive Assistant (SEA) to the President, Dr. Sylvia Blyden. Indeed, Blyden resigned with dignity and did not create any room for detractors to use to attack the President or the APC. Many APC supporters have pondered deeply over why a highly paid and influential position will be abandoned by Dr. Blyden. Meanwhile, Blyden has strongly maintained her loyalty to the APC which she joined after the 2012 elections.

Can We Postpone the 3-Days?
Listening yesterday to television and radio reports of the level of unpreparedness for an exercise that is supposed to commence tomorrow, one has to wonder if it will not be such a bad idea afterall to postpone the slated Ose-to-Ose social mobilization ‘lock down’. It appears there is a lot of chaotic arrangements and ill-prepared status.
