Mohamed Teslimi Bangura, aka Medoski, President of the Sierra Leone Central Union in Holland described the day as â€œwonderfulâ€. He confessed that for the past 15 years heâ€™s been in Europe, he has never witnessed such a gathering organised by the Sierra Leone embassy to commemorate the countryâ€™s independence. He called on his counterparts residing in Holland, Belgium, France and Luxembourg to come together for what he described as a â€œgrand style 50th Anniversary celebration next yearâ€.
He praised the Ambassador for his innovation since he assumed office in 2008 and his participation to their programmes. â€œThis Ambassador is always prepared to honour every invitation we extended to him. Now we feel that we have a father at the embassy and our association is very much determined to work with him for the progress of our countryâ€, Bangura said.Chernor Ojuku Sesay, Information AttachÃ©, Sierra Leone Embassy, Brussels/EU
