As we draw the curtains on a week of reflection on 22 years (10th August 1998 – 10th August 2020) of providing news ethically and professionally, we want to thank all those who have stood by us on this long journey.
It has not been easy, from a one-room office at Cotton tree, surviving the war years, Ebola and now Corona. From the treason trials to executions, from Special Court to elections, from disasters to celebrations, you have been there with us.
The future cannot be predicted, with new media threatening our industry, and corona re-writing the new normal. We are however determined that we will continue to innovate, re-create and passionately stay the course.
We remember those who fell by the wayside. Saoman Conteh, Mr Yannie, Emmanuel Awotelli Cole (Stone), Emanuella Kallon, and Samuel John. May mother earth continue to rest gently on your wonderful souls.
Buying the newspaper, advertising and subscribing have kept us going as a business. Your advice and words of encouragement have helped to refine us. We thank and appreciate you for standing by us all these 22 years. May the good Lord continue to bless and keep you.
We are Awoko, Truly Sierra Leonean, Your preferred option.
