It is also intended to make it easier for you to find essential information on our services, activities and programmes, as well as regular news updates; and because we welcome your comments, advice and suggestions.

I am honoured to be Freetown’s elected Mayor. I am thankful for the opportunity to lead us on this journey as together we transform Freetown and see it achieve its full potential.
