Election eve in Sierra Leone...

It’s the eve before the elections. 
What a gorgeous sunset. 
There’s so much excitement in the air today. 
Everyone is talking about the elections. 
People are so keen to vote tomorrow.
Some people are still traveling to whichever town or city they are registered to vote.
A lot of people are scurrying about running errands.
I went to the supermarket after work today.
I’ve never seen it busier.
Many people are stocking up, just in case. 
Hopefully it’s not even necessary.
But maybe it’s better to be safe. 
It’s hard to judge what the risk is anyway. 
Some organisations made staff stay indoors today.
I’ve been going to work and other places using public transport. 
There’s no right approach except to be alert, listen for legitimate updates (there’s a lot of fake news) and be flexible. 
Right now, there’s a good vibe in the air. 
So far so good. 
I hope and pray it stays that way.
Let’s pray that tomorrow’s elections are free and fair. 
And that everyone who registered to vote can get to their polling station despite vehicle bans. 
Soon we will know who the people of Sierra Leone voted for.
The next week will be a week full of anticipation. 
Let’s pray that tomorrow, and the days following the elections are full of peace and unity.
Vote wisely Sierra Leone. 
Make your vote count.
