Juba Barracks Get Facelift
One of the oldest military barracks of the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Force (RSLAF), the Juba barrack situated in the western part of Freetown recently got a facelift through the initiative of its Commanding Officer (CO) Capt. S.M. James who took over as commander after the Late Major M.B.Kamara.
The barrack is housing over two hundred soldiers from other ranks and ten officers.
It would be recalled that the barrack has been depreciated for many years waiting to be rehabilitated as confirmed by a private soldier who have been residing in the barrack for several years.
The private soldier noted that the arrival of the new military commander in the past few months has changed the looks of the barrack, as the entire administrative block is painted, proper sanitation installed and ensuring that the barracks is clean.
The Brigade Commander of the Third Infantry Brigade Colonel Bureh Sesay recently inspected the barrack as part of his responsibility as the Juba barrack falls under his purview and was impressed in the way and manner the barracks has improved in recent times and commended the OC, officers and other ranks for maintaining orderliness, discipline within their area of responsibility.
The CO Capt. James thanked his superior for the unannounced visit to the barrack and briefed him about their area of responsibility within the barracks and its immediate environs.
He said due to heavy traffic jams within the Juba and the Lumley area the soldiers assisted the police to ensure free flow of traffic.
He attributed the traffic jams due to the ongoing construction of the road by the Senegalese company who placed their machines along the road thereby making it difficult for vehicles to past though and secondly the way and manner the traffic police are handling the traffic is another problem affecting the frequent traffic jams .
