  • Can this Importer Bazzy be thoroughly investigated this time. We are tired of these unscrupulus bussinessmen poisoning and killing our fellow Sierra Leonean with stale contaminated imported food and at the same time using our state as a dumping ground. (Why Orogo Bridge?) Any guilty culprit must be dealt with seriously. Set the pace this time. You could be be their victim one day. lonta
