There were lots of joyful scenes last night at the 50th Independence Anniversary Banquet and Awards Super show. The sight of stalwarts of the ruling All People’s Congress North American Branch enjoying themselves at the Banquet was a spectacle not to be missed and it was a journalists’ delight that Cocorioko will bring you in this segment . A happy family was out having fun on the night and they added color and glamor to a memorable occasion.
It was a most thrilling Banquet with hot Sierra Leonean rhumba and merengue music by some new local artists rocking their nation keeping revellers on the floor all the time. Many of them danced the night away while others found time to get cozy with each other . APC men and women travelled far and wide to come and patronize the program organized by Ambassador Bockarie Stevens. Cocorioko was there and we bring you the highlights :
