President Ernest Bai Koroma, was Kwaku’s guest on KWAKU one-on-one on Sunday, 1st February, 2009

Sierra Leone is like many countries in Africa: It’s a study in contrast. It has vast natural resources – from cobbalt & Iron, to diamonds & gold. Even oil is spoken of. With its turqouise seas, white beach sands & golden & kind sunshine, Sierra Leone is Paradise. But it is paradise with wounds – wounds from 12 years of war & cruelty. In comes Ernest Bai Koroma, elected as President, he took office in November 2007,promising to heal the wounds, fix the economy & put Sierra Leonians back to work. You see, President Koroma was an insurance executive for 14years prior to entering politics. You would expect him tokeep a promise. But can he, will he redeem his pledge & the premium his people paid when they put their faith in him at the polls?
