Every year during and between the rainy season ( June - Oct) Sierra Leone experiences heavy flooding. The hardest hit/most affected, tend to be the poorest communities, with floods ravaging homes and often taking lives.
Whilst the recent devastating floods may be the worst experienced by Sierra Leone in years, little has been done year -on - year to mitigate or guard against these annual floods. In fact, despite warnings against the continued levels of deforestation, poor sanitation, ineffective town and country planning, it's fair to say that very little change has taken place with regards to preparing for the ( expected) heavy rainfall.
Critics argue that current ministers are simply just too busy building mansions, buying homes abroad, educating their children abroad, and re allocating government funds to personal accounts .. to use the money to develop communities, take the precautions necessary, or simply put...care
That's what critics say.

With millions of pounds now pledged by various governments including China and the UK, the concern of many ( despite their grief) is... what will happen to that money?
With the millions pledged to fight Ebola unaccounted for, do the critics have a point?
Was this disaster avoidable?
Sorry, not this time Mr President
What do Grace Mugabe and Naomi Campbell have in common?
Well...a fiery temper it would seem
The government of Zimbabwe requested diplomatic immunity for Grace, whilst the South African government put airports on red alert [click]
Where is she now?
Gotta love her
Did you know Nigerian state officials ( senators) are some of the the highest paid in the world? [click]
