Sierra Leone is tiny West Africa state with about five million inhabitants.
This country is staggering to stabilize from all fronts; social, economic and political as it has been ranked among the poorest or least developed countries on the face of the earth by the United Nations Human Development Index.
The irony is that Sierra Leone is one of the countries that have the highest deposit of natural resources in the world.
The backwardness of this tiny West African state has been characterised by bad governance, corruption, maladministration, nepotism and gross human right abuses which made way for the eleven years gruesome civil war that lasted from 1991-2002.
The war has now ended with Sierra Leone trying to crip from being the most under developed nation in the world.
This can only be done with the aid of strong civil society organisations working across the country as watch dogs.
