Sierra Leone: President Koroma Tours Bumbuna Project Following Shutdown for Repairs

[Sierra Leone Government]

Energy has been identified by the government of President Ernest Bai Koroma as a panacea for sustainable socio-economic development of Sierra Leone. When he assumed office in 2007, he promised to restore electricity to Freetown, once shamefully dubbed the darkest Capital City in the world throughout the SLPP's eleven years in power. As is usually the case, President Koroma promised to deliver electricity in Freetown in 100 days and he did in record time.
