Mohamed Teslimi Bangura, aka Medoski, President of the Sierra Leone Central Union in Holland described the day as “wonderful”. He confessed that for the past 15 years he’s been in Europe, he has never witnessed such a gathering organised by the Sierra Leone embassy to commemorate the country’s independence. He called on his counterparts residing in Holland, Belgium, France and Luxembourg to come together for what he described as a “grand style 50th Anniversary celebration next year”.
