English/Nat Platoons of tense government soldiers are now patrolling the near-empty streets of Sierra Leone's capital, Freetown. Government-allied jet fighters fired over rebel-controlled parts of the capital on Saturday in an attempt to overcome the rebels who stormed into the capital on Wednesday. Since then, terrified residents have left the city in droves, escaping the dwindling food and water supplies, power cuts and destruction of their homes, schools and hospitals. The rebels are calling for the release of their jailed leader and the ousting of the country's President Ahmed Tejan Kabbah. Government-allied jet fighters screamed over Sierra Leone's embattled capital on Saturday, firing a string of rockets into rebel held territory. Plumes of black and grey smoke curled into the...

Abass Kamara came a long way from Makeni, Sierra Leone to Berlin. Now he sits in the Bundestag, the German Parliament, waiting for answers. Germany was one of the financiers who patronised Addax-Project, a development project in Sierra Leone, Westafrica. The project was filled with promises. On a 10,000 hectares estate the local farmers should grow sugarcane, planted in circular fields watered by pivot irrigation. “It will produce 85,000m3 ethanol per annum and approximately 100,000 MWh of renewable power per annum. At March 2015, the project employed 3,600 people”. None of these promises were fulfilled. The fabric is closed. The situation for the people now is even worse. They lost their land. They fight to survive. Every day. Panorama – die Reporter tells a story of a failed developmen...
After a 6 hour flight from Brussels, Belgium (EBBR), we arrived in Freetown, Sierra Leone (GFLL).

English/Nat Britons who fled the Sierra Leone coup arrived back in Britain early today (Friday) after escaping atrocities during the last few days in the capital Freetown. A Foreign Office-chartered jumbo jet carrying up to 400 people from the strife-torn West African country landed at Stansted airport in Essex. The passengers said many foreign women had been raped by rebel soldiers, while others witnessed massacres and looting as Freetown descended into chaos. Many of the evacuees had tales of unbelievable horror and wept with relief when they were reunited with waiting relatives. Some were also unhappy with the lack of support they felt they had received from the British Foreign Office. Almost all were grateful to the Americans for launching what was described as a fantas...
(I was spendin' too much time alExplainone)
Spendin' too much time alone...
(And I just ran outta Trojans)
Horses gallop to her throne
(We were behaving like teenagers)
We're behaving like teenagers
(Makin' less than minimum wage)
Still inside our parents' homes
(No I don't live in Denver)
No I don't live in Denver
(I grew up in Sierra Leone)
And her pink skies will keep me warm
Tid bits of intuition that I be gettin' abandon admission (Sierra Leone)
Abandon mission, you must be kiddin', this shit feelin' different
Shit feelin' too good to me
Glistening, shimmerin' underneath the sunlight, the sunlight (Sierra Leone)
And a new day will bring about the dawn
And a new day will bring another cryin' babe into the world (girl now)
Our daughter's reachin' for the nipple cause it's time for her to eat
Tonight I'll lay her in the cradle if it's time for go to sleep
I sing a Lennon lullaby, she can have a pretty dream
Baby girl if you knew what I know, knew what I know
Na, na na, na na, na...
