Those seeking to bury President Ernest Koroma’s achievements under the rubble of ungratefulness and politically-inspired propaganda will have an uphill task to diminish the immortal legacies the President is about to leave Sierra Leone when his term of office expires in 2018—One of them being the Mamamah International Airport , which has started becoming a reality as the Chinese construction begins work on the massive project.
The new international airport, which will further open up the nation to business, tourism and direct foreign investment and make Sierra Leone a regional aviation hub in West Africa , is the brain-child of the development-oriented President Ernest Koroma. The Government of Sierra Leone signed the contract for the construction of the international airport with the China Railway International in 2012. The airport will be an aviation city of modern international standards.

Mamamah International Airport Becomes a Reality!
The Chinese have begun the construction of the Mamamah International Airport situated along the Freetown-Masiaka highway which will in no small way ease the current nightmare that travellers go through in crossing the sea between Targrin and the Kissy Ferry Terminal.
The first picture is the dummy of the would-be international airport and the other photos show the Chinese engineers posing for the camera.
President Ernest Bai Koroma has invested in infrastructural development in the country more than any other Head of State since the country attained self determination from Britain in 1961.
