Latest SL news...

A quick update from Sierra Leone.

Over the weekend there have been a few scuffles in town. Nothing major. But we were required to stay on the compound between 7pm and 7am. I found the latest news on the BBC which states that "Sierra Leone's ruling party is seeking an injunction against the electoral commission to stop it from publishing further presidential election results." Click on this link for the article.

It is interesting because over 75% of the votes are counted, with APC in the lead (60% to 40%). We were expecting to hear the final results announced officially on Saturday or maybe Monday. Now it looks like it may take a little longer...
