President's inauguration planned for tomorrow...

Driving home from work today we noticed a number of people hard at work; young men painting the street curbs. Red and White. Colors of the All Peoples Congress party. Even the palm tree was decorated with red & white paint; marked with the letters APC. Tomorrow is a big day for the people of Sierra Leone.

Sierra Leone's recently elected president, Ernest Koroma, will be formally inaugurated tomorrow. News is that 8 West African heads of state will be in attendance as Sierra Leone's former president, Ahmed Tejan Kabbah hands over the presidential staff to new president, Ernest Koroma, in a ceremony marking the democratic transfer of power. It is the first transfer of power since Sierra Leone's civil war ended in 2002. President Ernest Koroma was actually sworn into office in September but the official festivities were postponed because of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

More news tomorrow...
