More rains more disasters in Freetown during the August rain. We must find a solution to prevent future disasters – a serious plan in which the people take the lead in assessing the problems with support from the government.

By the way i am tempted to ask: where is the president in all this? Still just going about normal business in State House receiving important guests and marking important speeches eh?
