Former Sierra Leone footballer, Leslie Allen has emerged as a local champion of community cleaning in Fourah Bay and it’s environs.
Allen has mobilized scores of youths to join the ongoing Operation Clean Freetown campaign in Wards 369 and 371 all within the densely populated communities of Fourah Bay, Guard Street and Mabela in the East end of Freetown.
