CORRUPT SIERRA LEONEANS ARE ENEMIES OF PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT
Written by Tony Bee, Sydney, Australia   
Monday, 02 March 2015 18:29

Truly speaking, it is an open secret that Sierra Leoneans, especially the so-called politicians and senior civil servants  who see corruption as a way of life therefore, they should take it as a profession  at the expense of the nation, are complete enemies of peace, unity, progress and development in the country. As result, such people are not fit to be amongst honest and decent patriotic fellow Sierra Leoneans in the country. Therefore, they should be treated like beasts in the bush because they are depriving the poor masses basic right to live a happy life and also the country’s progress and development.

Cloud computing offers the opportunity to make use of processing power, storage space or software over the internet as and when required, reducing IT costs in the process.  In spite of these advantages, many companies, especially in Germany, remain skeptical about outsourcing their data to external servers.  Their fear is, that unauthorized individual could gain access to sensitive company information.  Now, what solutions will make computing in the cloud a more secure affair?

Cloud computing is a practical concept that allows companies to rent storage space, processing power or software programs over the Internet as part of a flexible service.  This lets companies respond quickly to changes in customer requirements or developments in the marketplace.  The information technology can be adapted simply and cheaply to meet their current need.  More and more companies are seeking the merits of this sort of system.

 
TEACHERS DEMAND RISK ALLOWANCE

As government insists on the reopening of schools by the end of this month teachers and parents are equally reluctant to send their kids to school out of fear of Ebola. As for the teachers they are willing, but with a condition of receiving risk allowance like the nurses and doctors do.

When this reporter asked one school headmaster in the western area urban last week end he confirmed that his school will only reopen if government gives them risk allowance in addition to the huge salaries they receive on monthly basis. “School children are going to be coming from deferent locations they have been for the past nine months or so. There are children who go to school in Bo, Makeni and Kenema for example who go to school in other parts of the country as soon as schools reopen you see them ZIG ZAGING all over the place; and that is risky for us the teachers, the children themselves and who so ever interacts with them”, the anonymous head teacher said.

 
OPEN LETTER TO THE MINISTER OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS, HON. ALPHA B. S. KANU
Written by press release

TO: The Minister of Information and Communications

Youyi Building

Freetown, Sierra Leone, West Africa

February 23, 2015

Ref: PRESS CONFERENCE ABOUT EBOLA FUNDS -2/21/2015

Dear Hon. Minister,

This letter is in reference to your February 21, 2015 Press Conference at the Youyi Building in Freetown, Sierra Leone about the Auditor General’s report on the alleged mismanagement of  Ebola Funds. Your surprising and unexpected comments on the audit of the Ebola Funds in which you stated that it  “was baseless, fallacious and a distraction to government’s effort in defeating Ebola” was rather unfortunate, misleading, and politically disingenuous. It comes at a time when our nation needs a strategic and visionary thinking in planning for a post Ebola recovery phase especially when the infection rate, though fluctuating, is significantly reducing.

Good Job, NATCOM & GSM Operators

  Some people think good things never come from certain entities except frustration and cheating others out of their monies, especially with mobile companies.

  The tide or trend seems to change all of a sudden, isn’t it, with the coming of Momoh Konte into the chairmanship of the national telecommunications commission.

  We are happy about and for this, really, and we are encouraging them for the camaraderie to continue, so long as the interest of consumers takes first place – yes first place.

    But there’s no need to worry because the Chairman Momoh Konte over the weekend engaged the management of the two leading mobile phone companies in the country, Airtel and Africell, at Radisson Blu Hotel, Freetown.
