A few times in life, someone walks into your life, and you realize that you have been touched by a miracle.”My dear dear Vicky, my African Queen!”, the way I greeted her was one such person in my life. Up until her last breath, she not only proved to be a friend, but a real sister in all sense of the word, except by birth. Vicky was always bubbling. Just about two years ago, she went from a bad and persistent cough, to being diagnosed with lung cancer, to which she finally succumbed on August 1, 2014, and was laid to rest after a befitting funeral service at the United Brethren Church, Regent Road, Freetown.

Freetown Records 20 Ebola Cases in 2 days
In the last 48 hours, the Western Area of Sierra Leone housing the capital city of Freetown, has recorded 20 new laboratory confirmed Ebola patients. In an urban setting within an overcrowded capital, this number in just 2 days, is frightening. To make matters worse, the number does not include corpses around Freetown which have also been tested for Ebola. An exasperated Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Sarian Kamara was shown on television this week appealing for people to “stop throwing dead bodies on the streets”. She begged Freetown residents to “leave your dead bodies in your houses” until the Ministry arrived to collect dead bodies from the houses. She lamented that “Everyday, we are being called about dead bodies in the streets”.
