Sierra Leone is preparing for its national elections. It’s the country's fourth elections since the end of its 11-year civil war but only the second elections that’s being held without UN oversight. We know that violence has been a staple in recent elections, but that got us thinking about other aspects of life in the country. So what is life really like in Sierra Leone? » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: http://go.nowth.is/2t73cS8 We also have to mention that Sierra Leone has been marred by conflict, violence, and disease over the last two decades—because their impacts can still be felt today. The country spiraled into civil war from 1991-2002. Tens of thousands of civilians died as a result. Hundreds were subjected to brutal li...

Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world. It already had one of the highest infant mortality rates. Then came an outbreak of the Ebola disease in 2014 that killed almost 4000 people – many of them children. The health system could not cope. On top of that, a slump in commodity prices crippled the economy. It is obvious the new president faces big challenges. He’ll take over from President Ernest Bai Koroma who’s stepping down after two five-year terms. There were complaints after the first electoral poll earlier last month of ballot tampering. And the presidential run-off last week was delayed because of the fraud allegations. But it eventually went ahead on Saturday between a former coup leader, Julius Maada Bio, and the president’s hand-picked successor, Samura Kamara...
We had a fantastic time in #SierraLeone. We had to take a car to the plane then a bus from the plane to a boat dock, then a boat over to Freetown! All-in-all, our 35-minute flight turned into 6hrs of travel. It was well worth it and we are happy we made this trip while we are still in #WestAfrica as #American #Expats. We enjoyed the museum, seeing chimpanzees, relaxing, and enjoying the local #culture. It seemed like a mix between #Senegal and the #Caribbean...definitely similar to #Haiti. Here are a few clips of our time in #Freetown. Please thumbs-up, like, and subscribe if you enjoy our content.

This documentary marks a pivotal moment in the life of a small West African country; Sierra Leone, and also in my own life. In 2002, as the decade long civil war (famous for its diamonds and victims of amputation) slowly came to an end, I visited and documented the aftermath of war in interviews with people at all levels of society. This film demonstrates the willingness of a small country and its gallant people to recognise the divisive issues of the past and to begin the long path of reconciliation and renewal. I teamed up with long time indigenous friend, Andrew Lavali of Freetown, to ask the questions that needed answers. Listen to the voices of Sierra Leone and feel the anxieties and optimism present in those first days of peace. I intend to return shortly and produce a second, follo...
