This is now implemented by inserting a Read more... tag (the button is located below the editor area) a dotted line appears in the edited text showing the split location for the Read more.... A new Plugin takes care of the rest.

It is worth mentioning that this does not have a negative effect on migrated data from older sites. The new implementation is fully backward compatible.

Parliament versus Free Speech

Yesterday Parliament summoned key ministries, departments, and agencies, in relation to their role ina state of emergency, following unhealthy reporting in the media about certain individuals and institutions in the fight against Ebola.

Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Hon Chernor Bah, saidit is difficult to manage issues of human rights, which includes free speech, in a state of emergency, where these rights have been suspended.

  He reaffirmed Parliament’s position that after the Ebola war is over, everyone including MPs is going to give a full account about how each cent was spent – as this happens to be the thorny issue presently across the country.



United APC; Divided SLPP!

Whether close-up or at a distance, even a teenager would tell you the truth about Sierra Leone’s two oldest parties – that one is united and the other is divided.

There isn’t a week that we don’t witness a tradeoff between them – we mean the Opposition Sierra Leone People Party. Their preoccupation seems to be shouting and accusing each other most of the time.

  We know from day one it’s a party that’s riddled with cabals; cabals that are greedy and treacherous, whether they are in London, New York, or Freetown.


View Point

Government Neglect Salpost

Generations ago, the Sierra Leone Postal Service was of relevance, an integral part of our lives, and all of us still remembers ‘the quickening of the heart’ when the mail man comes to our door with a letter. Today, however, Salpost is a neglected entity – all its offices across the country are safe havens for goats and sheep and the like.

   Worse, the National Commission for Privatization has recommended for Salpost to be privatized, discounting the pivotal role the post holds in any nation. NCP is of the view that Salpost is a liability on the neck of the government – as it stands, it can only get worse because no one has come forward with initiatives to keep it relevant, not even the Ministry of Information and Communication that oversees it.
