Sierra Leone News: Fire engine wahala

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

The issue, which led to the cancellation of British Airways and Kenya Airways flights to Sierra Leone over the weekend, sends out a really bad signal for our airport authorities. It shows that the issue of security is not being given the importance it deserves. We believe that the paramount issue for any airport in[…]

Sierra Leone News: Awoko TokTok: We demand an apology

Monday, March 10th, 2014

The news about what happened between the Football Association President and Sierra Leone’s most successful footballer is nothing but disgraceful and absolutely disgraceful. Since the days of football being played at the old Kingtom grounds and then the Recreation grounds (Recree), which now houses the National Stadium, we have never ever heard of the FA[…]

Sierra Leone News: The Mosquito invasion

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

We would want to commend Masada for their efforts at cleaning the City of Freetown. They are not there yet but if they do not get frustrated and continue with the steady zeal they are displaying now, they just might overcome and win the battle against the filth in the City. However as the filth[…]

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

The traffic in the Western area of Freetown has worsened over the past days mainly due to the road constructions, and the closure of main thoroughfares.

Colleague journalist Hassan Arouni is nursing his broken bones in a UK hospital after being robbed and mercilessly dragged along the street by a thieving taxi driver and his colleagues.

Sierra Leone News: Happy Birthday  Pa Kabbah

Pa Kabbah turned 82 past Sunday. We in Awoko would like to wish him a belated happy birthday, good health and peace as he looks forward to the day he will return to his maker. We cannot wish him many more years, because that would be making a joke of the old man as he[…]

Congratulations: President Koroma and Mr Maada Bio

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

The pictures in the press of President Koroma and Mr Maada Bio embracing each other was to be quite frank, a beautiful sight. At the end of the day the meeting and the embrace was a triumph for Sierra Leone and demonstrates that our dear nation has truly come of age. It’s a validation that[…]
