The death of Makalay Koroma, whose camaraderie cut across party lines and across all shades of opinions has seen both the main SLPP opposition party and the ruling APC party members join in mourning her sudden death.

Until late yesterday night, mourners from all walks of life were continuing to throng into her residence in a state of shock and dismay.

Makalay Koroma will continue to be warmly remembered by this press for mobilising scores of APC Women to storm Law Courts in protest against the continued prosecution of this writer for Criminal Libel over the article about a fake First Lady appearing in Kailahun.
