However, taking into consideration other qualifying casualties like perennial participants and former tournament champions Nigeria, South Africa, Egypt and Cameroon; coupled with the fact that we topped Egypt and equalled on points with last year’s World Cup hosts and 1996 African Champions, South Africa in the  same group, Sierra Leoneans could now talk with authority that the country’s football is on the rise.

…Back To Kailahun and The Irony of The Legendary Court ‘Barray’

Sierra Leoneans would recall the electoral malpractice that was perpetrated by then ruling Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) in Kailahun Court ‘Barray’ during the 2007 Presidential run-off election which warranted the National Electoral Commission (NEC) to cancel the results in addition to other places where vote rigging was proved beyond all reasonable doubt.

It is the result of a willful effort by its membership to create a conducive environment so that their engagements at all levels combine to build that atmosphere of equality, openness and transparency. Such an open and fluid interaction amongst people of different backgrounds augurs well for the process of change and dynamism which makes for organically growing organizations.
