Sierra Leone .SL Websites Go Offline

All the websites with the .sl extension in Sierra Leone, have been down now for the last five days following some internal problems at Afcom(SL) Ltd., which is the company managing the DNS and domain names for the country’s .sl extension. The website of the Office of the President at www.statehouse.sl is down as are many others including the one for the Ministry of Health (www.health.sl), the World Bank’s IRCBP Project (www.ircbp.sl) and this newspaper (awarenesstimes.com). This newspaper’s website can be accessed by our other address: www.awarenesstimes.com

When we contacted Mr. Adel Suleiman, the Managing Director of AfCom, he stated that his senior technician, Mr. Siraju was working on the problem. When we contacted the said Mr. Siraju, he stated that he could not resolve the problem and blamed Sierratel for the disgraceful situation.

However, credible sources indicate that one Alvin Emmerson Thomas who recently resigned from AfCom is the only one who has the technical know-how to resolve the DNS problem.

When Mr. Emmerson Thomas was contacted, he responded that he was fully capable of resolving the problem but only if Mr. Adel Suleiman politely requested it of him.

Meanwhile, Sierra Leoneans including the Office of the President are all suffering as the Afcom saga continues.

All efforts to contact Alhaji Kanji Daramy, the Chairman of the National Telecommunications Commission proved futile.
