However, some youth have been able to weather the storm by moving abroad and making positive change by giving back to society what they have achieved in years.
One such person is Steven Murray Jr. a young Sierra Leonean who has opened the kotintri lounge at the Lumley community. The kotintri lounge according to him is a dream come true as he had always thought of giving back to his society when he is in the position to do so.
He called on young people to be positive minded and ensure they work hard in achieving their dreams which according to him will help change not only their lives but the society they find themselves.
Hon Shekuba ‘Armani’ Sannoh is the Member of parliament for constituency 112 which covers the Lumley community. He commended the proprietor and team for the initiative citing that as a community, they will no longer go and to other constituencies leaving what they consider to be theirs.
Cultural and traditional performances and prayers ,climaxed the opening ceremony of the kotintri lounge which can be used for seminars, community meetings, symposiums among others.
