“Our nation is at war with a vicious enemy.” (E.B. Koroma, President of Sierra Leone, December 12, 2014).
Except for going to church services the population of Sierra Leone was instructed to stay home during the Christmas and New Year holidays. We are currently in a semi-lockdown mode for the Festive Season and beyond; no restaurants, no sporting events, no public celebrations, no wedding receptions and no street celebrations. All shops must close on weekdays by 6.00 PM, by noon on Saturdays and no trading is allowed on Sundays. Church services are restricted - they may be held during the day and only up to 5.00 PM. New Year Church services were forbidden. The army and patrol volunteers are still out in force to ensure that these decrees are followed. Violators face the full weight of the law. Add to this list of prohibitions attendance at any form of school – primary, secondary or university.
