In Sierra Leone, David Tam Baryoh’s MONOLOGUE Scores Again

Sierra Leone’s leading good governance and social activism radio programme is the weekly MONOLOGUE programme hosted by seasoned journalist David Tam-Baryoh. The programme is famous for spurring various governments and officials into doing the right thing for citizens as it is known to have a huge listenership.


David Tam-Baryoh himself has a cult-like following all over Sierra Leone and it is not uncommon to see grown-ups running home on Saturday evenings so as not to miss the 9pm commencement of the programme. Similarly, many Ataya Bases (youth ghettos) and Neighbourhood Pubs will tune their music sets off and switch over to Monologue to entertain their guests and keep them buying rounds of drinks. Friends would arrange to meet and hang out to listen to particularly anticipated programmes.


As a result of this, issues taken up by MONOLOGUE are treated very seriously with Tam Baryoh scoring success after success on issues he takes up. His latest success has been with the Government’s reaction to the illegal adoption of Sierra Leone children some 15 years ago.


It was Tam Baryoh and his team who single-handedly fought vehemently over the radio air-waves and in the pages of their PUNCH newspaper to get the public attention drawn to what had seemed like a hopeless case that had not merited much media attention.

 

The Government White Paper released last Friday April 13th 2012, has endorsed most of the positions taken by Tam Baryoh during his ‘monologues’ on the issue. This is another notch on the success belt of the laudable team of Sierra Leonean journalists behind the name MONOLOGUE.
