The Vice- President of Sierra Leone and Leader-elect of the ruling SLPP, Solomon Ekuma Berewa will be the guest of honour at a reception to be organise by Friends of Berewa UK. The reception will take place on Friday 21st of October 2005 at the prestigious Royal National Hotel, Russel Square London.
The purpose of the reception is to welcome and congratulate the Vice-President on his historical victory and to thank him for his invaluable contribution towards peace, security, democracy and development in Sierra Leone. This event will provide an opportunity for His Excellency the Vice- President to meet and interact with a cross-section of the Sierra Leonean community in the UK.
Friends of Berewa UK, are a group of independent-minded, progressive and forward looking Sierra Leoneans who passionately believe that at this crucial moment, Sierra Leone deserves nothing other than responsible leadership that would rectify the failures of previous regimes ; that would build on the post-war political, economic and social gains achieved so far which will lead the country to future development and prosperity for all.
