The Minister of Internal affairs, Joseph Bandabla Dauda, has assured Sierra Leoneans in Yenga that the second step to take the border zone from the grip of neighboring Guinea is to engage the Guinean government for complete demarcation of the border. The Minister made this disclosure during a recent fact-finding tour in the Eastern Region of Sierra Leone.
JB. Dauda noted that the first successful step was the demilitarization of the border. He encouraged inhabitants to keep the peace as something will be done to put the issue to rest.
Kissi Teng Chiefdom Speaker, Chief Fallah Jusu explained to the fact-finding entourage that the Guineans do not allow them to farm or erect school in the area.

According to Officer in Charge of Kailahun Immigration Office, Abdul Raman Kamara, they have only one motor bike to operate in the entire area. He called on the minister to intervene and provide them with logistical support to operate smoothly.
