John Baimba Sesay Collectively as a nation, a lot of gains we have made. I have written extensively on how the present administration has worked assiduously in turning things round in a country that had witnessed a brutal war which left behind a fractured infrastructure with apparently broken hopes.
I don’t know why, but I have a sickening feeling that we are heading for a political crisis in Sierra Leone ahead of next year’s elections. I pray it is not so.

Since the British people voted just over a year ago to leave the European Union (EU), I have been regularly asked what this will mean for the UK’s relationship with Sierra Leone – and especially our trade links – once Brexit happens.
