Good Job, NATCOM & GSM Operators

  Some people think good things never come from certain entities except frustration and cheating others out of their monies, especially with mobile companies.

  The tide or trend seems to change all of a sudden, isn’t it, with the coming of Momoh Konte into the chairmanship of the national telecommunications commission.

  We are happy about and for this, really, and we are encouraging them for the camaraderie to continue, so long as the interest of consumers takes first place – yes first place.

    But there’s no need to worry because the Chairman Momoh Konte over the weekend engaged the management of the two leading mobile phone companies in the country, Airtel and Africell, at Radisson Blu Hotel, Freetown.

VP Sumana, & So What?

Our vice president, Samuel Sam Sumana, is under self-quarantine following the death of one of his security guards to Ebola – it’s something really admirable.

  Sierra Leonean politics, if you must know, is one of surprises – including the players and the issues – and is a source of unending interesting debates.

TRIBUTE : MY ENCOUNTER WITH TAMBA SAM @ THE SLPP OFFICE

With tears running down my cheeks, I was shocked and became mute after hearing the shocking news about the death of the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) National Publicity Secretary, Hon.
