A Journalist, Sheku Tonga, has been discharged by the Kenema Magistrate Court. He was dragged to court on six count charges of libel and other criminal acts. The particulars of offence state that the discharged journalist reported sometime last year that the Kenema City Council was constructed in a substandard manner which had resulted in leakages in the building whenever it rains. In his ruling, presiding Magistrate said the journalist has no case to answer because what he reported was the fact. The journalist was awarded cost in the sum of Le1,500,000 (One Million Five Hundred Thousand Leones).

Reports have it that a Sierra Leonean born engineer, Joseph A. T. During, who studied in London, has started designing and constructing traffic lights with locally produced materials. According to reports, the traffic lights can operate with a 10 second signal at interval for red, yellow and green lights. Mr. During is asking for more help to support his project.
