• Sierre Leone cleans up by Masada Waste Management | The Waste Transformers

Recently a food scandal broke out in the capital of Freetown, that was both heartbreaking and scandalous. Contaminated chicken was imported into Sierre Leone by a trader. The countries health services rendered the chicken unfit for human consumption and under the orders of government, the carcasses where buried on a landfill site. Thousands of people stormed the dump site and poor people dug the chicken up that had been buried in human, garbage and industrial waste. Together...

After 7 years of incompetence, waste and the development of a political mafia hell bent on turning our fragile democracy into a certifiable failed state: Do you feel better? Has your life improved? Do you have confidence that we are moving in the right direction? Ebola and its bloody aftermath has laid bare just how incompetent our Blood Red APC government is. They said: “De Pa Di Wok” Really? They said they had an Agenda For Prosperity Really? They said we would embark on an Attitudinal Change It is no longer funny when the joke is at our expense in the needless loss of life due to the incompetence and neglect of our Blood Red APC Mafia Government. Enough is enough! Let us heed the wise words: “We must never reward failure” “No Government should ever receive a blank cheque” “Elections have Consequences” It is our patriotic duty to ensure that our country never again endures a blood red tragedy like EBOLA. We must demand more from those given the privilege of serving us. We, the people are the masters and not our elected officials. They serve at our pleasure. WE ARE NOT THEIR SLAVES! President Ernest Koroma swore a solemn oath to protect ALL the citizens of Sierra Leone. He has failed in his sacred duty and there must be consequences for him and the APC Political Mafia that surrounds him. We must send a clear message to them: WE DO NOT WANT THE BLOOD RED MISERY YOU HAVE INFLICTED UPON OUR COUNTRY We deserve better than your record of miserable failure and empty rhetoric…………….
