Employees of the Mission expressed their sympathies while responding to an appeal from the Texas Community Activist , Mrs.Nannette Thomas , for financial contributions to help bury the late Comedian from Sierra Leone, “Lord Bongo Johnson ” . A purse was provided towards the funeral through personal contributions by employees of the Mission.
It must be recalled that the funeral of the comedian was in jeopardy due to lack of funds . Lord Bngo will now be buried on Saturday August 14 in Texas.
The Mission prayed for the repose of the souls of the two departed Sierra Leoneans and for their souls to rest in peace.
