Sierra Leone: News Analysis of State of Fight against Ebola
A very important Sierra Leone citizen was this week quoted as saying “We have to ensure that within the next couple of weeks or so, we will put the whole issue of Ebola behind us”. Clearly, this very important citizen is under a huge illusion based on gross misinformation he might have been given by those in whom he has placed trust. This very important citizen has shown, with those words, that he really has no idea of the extent of gravity of what is now unfolding inside Sierra Leone with respect to Ebola.

Focus on Parliament : The Ebola Conundrum
I remember some years ago, in the heat of the rebel war (1991-2002) when this nation was besieged largely by itself and almost imploding in a manner that threatened her very existence. Every now and again some rebel trickery, abduction or dastardly attack got reported, with the sickening news of the occasional desertion to the rebel side! We in the electronic media then, needed to respond with whatever tools we had. After some thought we created a new information platform for a weekly simulcast which we called "Challenges." Aptly so!
