Contrary to recent media speculations that the Libyan Leader was displeased with Sierra Leone, it has emerged from our impeccable sources that First Lady Sia Koroma, the wife of President Koroma, yesterday Sunday June 21st 2009, left Sierra Leone for Libya on board a special flight sent for her by the Libyan Leader. Whilst in Libya, First Lady Sia Koroma is expected to further cement the growing relationship between her own Danke Koroma Foundation and the Al-Ghaddafi Project managed by the Libyan Leader's wife.

The Ghaddafis sent a special private plane to pick up the Sierra Leone First Lady as a mark of Colonel Ghaddafi's continued respect for President Koroma and his wife, the First Lady of Sierra Leone.

It will be recalled that on 3rd June 2009, the Libyans sent an Emissary of the Al-Ghaddafi Projects for Youths, Children and Women to the dynamic Sierra Leone First Lady to formally offer the people of Sierra Leone, through the Danke Koroma Foundation, a number of gifts including the building of a new school, a new hospital, as well as renovating existing hospitals at various sites across the country. The gifts represent the Libyan Leaders continued support to the development of Sierra Leone, after a decade of massive devastation occasioned by a bloody rebel war. It was disclosed to journalists that these latest set of gifts came about as a result of First Lady Sia Koroma's constructive discussions with Colonel Ghadafi and his wife Dr. Aisha Ghaddafi.

According to First Lady Sia Koroma, "The presentation of these gifts mark the start of a productive and fruitful relationship between the people of the Great Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and the People of Sierra Leone. This relationship must be seen as an extension of the very close and amicable relationship already existing between the Great Leader who is the Chairman of the African Union and President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma".

First Lady Sia Koroma is expected back home tomorrow Tuesday June 23rd 2009.
