Sierra Leoneans are not taking Covid-19 seriously

Chadia Awada Talib

After being holed up for nearly 2 months at home , I finally decided to go out for a spin this evening to see what my people out there are up to . To say the truth , I miss my city … the ambience in the streets and just that feeling of being alive .

I don’t know if Bo City really believes COVID-19 is real .
Everything was flowing like it used to … I did not notice any form of social distancing nor did I see the stream of people criss-crossing having masks on 😩😩.
99% were without masks .
99% of the 1% with masks had their masks below their chins .
So …. that brings me to these questions :
Are we just disobeying laws ?
Are we ignorant to the fact that COVID-19 is real ?
Do we even believe it’s real ?
Are we too desperate making ends meet to care ?!
Is hunger MASKING our sense of reason ?
Or are we just waiting to see The prediction of Mr and Mrs Bill Gates happen for us to take precautions ?
I was shocked to say the truth .
Everyone was busy doing their thing WITHOUT any precautions .
Schools are out … the flow of teenage traders was serious !
And I ask again : are those kids safer out there peddling wares in the streets than in schools ?!
I don’t know about other cities but my city needs to step up before “ dawn breaks “ .

Maada Bio used his selective State Of Emergency to intimidate, imprisoned, tortured and even kill opposition party members but repeated allowed SLPP supporters to break his imposed emergency laws.

For example, the SLPP transported people from Bo, all the way to Makeni to demonstrate for a Minister who preached genocide and opposition lynching.
Because Bio want’s to reinstate Abu Abu, his Resident Minister North, but don’t not want the suspecting eyes of the international community to see his game plan. He is trying to paint a picture that narrates a positive picture of a very ruthless SLPP minister.

God help Sierra Leone
