Sierra Leone celebrates 50th Anniversary

By Caroline Vuillemin | Chief Operations Officer

Thousands of Sierra Leoneans on April 27th graced the main activities marking the country’s Fiftieth Independence Anniversary celebrations at the National Stadium in Freetown.

Heads of States of Guinea, Mali, Equatorial Guinea, Senegal, Liberia, and Vice Presidents of Ghana and The Gambia, and delegations form Ecowas, African Union, and European Union among others took part in the ceremony.

Delivering his speech at the national stadium, the president said fifty years after independence, they were celebrating a new Sierra Leone. CTN covered the events.

The Peace Torch which has been touring the various regions was handed over to President Koroma by the Mayor of Freetown, Herbert George-Williams.

On the 27th April, 1961, Sierra Leone became the latest West African State to gain independence, after more than one hundred and fifty years of British colonial rule.
