In Sierra Leone, Senior Journalist Falls Ill

Freetown was awash with rumours yesterday Monday January 19th 2009 that a certain Sierra Leone journalist, with many years experience of the practice of ‘journalism’, had been stricken with a strange illness.

Depending on the source of the information, some allege that the journalist’s illness was mental and the journalist was currently admitted at a hospital, tightly bound up in chains to restrain this person whilst others allege that the journalist was not mentally ill but had been attacked with a cerebro-vascular stroke that has paralysed the limbs.

Still other sources allege that the journalist was "not at all seriously ill" but was merely suffering from a "simple attack of cerebral malaria". Cerebral malaria is known to sometimes cause symptoms that produce bizarre behaviour by the afflicted; similar to that of a mentally deranged wretch.

Until press time, the exact condition that the journalist had been stricken with (mental or physical) was not known but the condition was known to have lasted for at least five days now.

Awareness Times wishes the journalist a recovery from this ailment which should be followed by a long period of rest from labours.

"Such a period of rest should also serve as a time for deep reflection and a positive attitudinal change so this journalist can re-enter the practise a better person than before," opined a well respected Sierra Leonean upon hearing the news yesterday.
