34 Organisations Join MFWA to Demand Justice for Murdered Sierra Leonean Journalist

No image

Thirty-four prominent freedom of expression organisations around the world have joined the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) to demand justice for the murder of a Sierra Leonean journalist Ibrahim Foday.

Foday was murdered four years ago, on June 12, 2011, when he was covering a violent clash over a land dispute between Grafton Town and Kossoh Town for the privately-owned Exclusive Newspaper. In November 2012, a suspect, Tunde Williams, was arrested and charged with Foday’s murder; however, the trial has not progressed since then. Williams is currently out on bail, and the judiciary has yet to select a panel of jurors to hear the case.

Foday’s family has waited four long years for justice. His children Joyce Foday and Joseph Dianni Foday have lamented to the MFWA how difficult their lives have been following their father's murder. “We need help,” said Joseph. “I need justice to prevail for my late father and we are calling on the human rights and media rights groups to come to our aid.”




Sierra Leoneans, regardless of where you are in the world. Please if you really have real true and honest love for your motherland, be aware of religious fanatics and dogmatics’infiltrators in the country. We should put aside all our tribal sentiments, political, regional and religious differences and be watchdogs for the security of our country, especially for the precious lives of our poor, helpless and powerless masses in the country. Because theyalways stand to be the victims of circumstance whenever there is a problem of unrest in the country.

There are many diverse ways in which we can be watchdogs for our country,against religious extremists that are infiltrating our noble peaceful society, for instance by listening to their comments or statements, including their sermonsor teachings and their subversive movement in and out of the country.

Maada Bio: ‘Paopa Salone For Betteh’?

When Spartacus set out on his campaign against the Roman Empire, many thought his excursion won’t last for a fortnight because of the ruthless discipline that characterized Roman warfare.

  True, the Romans were the finest soldiers the world has ever seen, and their centuries of dominance is a testament to that fact. Spartacus too learned this hard fact when he finally hung on a cross on the Appian Highway after years of fighting against the mighty Roman war machine.

  Spartacus, a slave, made a dash for freedom, along with thousands of other slaves, but sadly fell short of his goal. No problem – it was left with history to proclaim him a villain or a hero for his infamous undertaking, and we never knew whether he regretted about his failed exploits as he hung dying on a Roman cross.
