Le5,000,000 Target Exceeded in Sierra Leone: WE CAN DO IT AND WE DID IT!!!

The cash flowed in like manna from heaven. Marketwomen, schoolchildren, businessmen, UN employees, expatriates working in Sierra Leone, farmers, politicians, elder statesmen, prominent women and people from all walks of life ensured our call was answered. It was a steady stream that continued to walk into our offices and into the bank to make their donation towards the unprecedented fine levied on this newspaper. By the close of yesterday Thursday 13th November 2008, we had raised the sum of Le4,922,314 and by this morning of Friday 14th November 2008, it was clear we had exceeded the amount we sought. The amazing thing about the donations has been the fact that the vast majority of donors were ordinary, ordinary Sierra Leoneans from all over the country who sent in small amounts of cash. It has been an 'Obama-moment'. Indeed, WE DID IT!!! More details later in this interesting saga in Sierra Leone including a breakdown analysis of the number of times in past few months that all (repeat, ALL!!) the top newspapers in Sierra Leone left out their imprints (their office addresses) but for which no one blinked an eye.
