Some news reports in the international media are proving to be much more damaging to our country’s image than even certain aspects of the recent civil war. At least during the war years, there were genuine concerns for our citizenry as the nation declined into lawlessness and chaos. The wanton brutality including the amputation of limbs, rape, child soldiers and unnecessary loss of life that were consequences of a greedy battle for supremacy and control over the Country’s natural resources aroused international concern and sympathy.

PRESS RELEASE: A.P.C ASIA BRANCH 25TH OCTOBER, 2011
For a very long time, a large number of sierra Leonean citizens residing in Asia whose political ideologies are similar to those of the all peoples congress party have been unable to translate them into reality and as a result, the Asia continent has been lying politically dormant for the past decades without the existence of an APC branch capable of contributing to and supporting the political activities of the party back home. Consequently, a branch has been established and is sending this press release out. Read full Press Release…

DESTROYING THE CHANGING IMAGE OF OUR COUNTRY AT “LEH WE TALK”?
In July this year, I whisked through Facebook to explore the activities of newly established groups by Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad. However, before this move, I was on a peaceful Sunday while chatting to colleagues taken aback when I noticed a very disturbing conversation that bothers the temporal shut down of our Bumbuna Hydro dam due to certain debt owed by few government agencies. The thread was from a group called “LEH WE TALK” (LWT) and the main post was carried by a Sierra Leonean living here in Australia. What sincerely provoked my concern was the acrimonious dramatization of the issue, describing the whole hydro project as wishy-washy, jubilantly arguing that it is down for good. Others argue that people should start using “KAMBOS” (fire emission from a fuelled bottle with wick) while this Sierra Leonean living in Australia preached to those in the diaspora not to even think of returning home because all is dead.
The newly elected Western Area East District Chairman Comrade Amadu Bangura has said that the visit of the Libyan leader Colonel Moarmar Gadaffi is a blessing for the All Peoples Congress Government of President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma in its quest to explore for alternative areas of financial investment intervention that will provide employment and help the country become less dependent on foreign assistance.
