Sierra Leone Navy Commended
During the war years, there was an overt acrimony between soldiers and the civil populace; our soldiers were regarded as enemies of the people.
Nowadays, the situation seems to have taken a reverse as there now exists a very cordial relationship between soldiers and civilians. The cordial relationship is being fostered by the professionalism and diligence exhibited by soldiers deployed in especially the provincial towns.
Officers of the Sierra Leone Navy deployed at Gbangbatoke and commanded by Lieutenant Brima Kamara are reported to be doing a marvelous job in that area.
Residents of Gbangbatoke and other areas of Sierra Rutile have commended the soldiers for providing water-tight security through their constant patrols.
“We can now sleep soundly at night as the regular patrolling of the officers has helped tremendously to keep criminals away,” they said.
The Vimetco Bauxite Mining Company and the Sierra Rutile have extended gratitude to the soldiers for protecting their properties from thieves.
Residents of the mining areas are therefore calling on government to provide more logistical support for the soldiers to help them become more effective.
