Fornah stated that the late woman’s life was a model, adding that it was a life well spent.He further revealed that the late Madam Alice Koroma modelled her life according to the teachings of the scripture. He said she was very religious to an extent she formed a prayer group that met and prayed for Sierra Leone every day.


He prayed that the soul of the departed, rest in perfect peace.


The late Mrs. Alice Rosaline Koroma was born on 27th July 1932 in Kamabai, Biriwa Chiefdom to Pa Ernest and Mammy May Sesay.
