Buy Country Review

Why are some countries able, despite their very real and serious problems, to press ahead along the road to reconciliation, recovery, and redevelopment while others cannot? These are critical questions for Africa, and their answers are complex and not always clear. Leadership is crucial, of course. Kagame was a strong leader–decisive, focused, disciplined, and honest–and he remains so today. I believe that sometimes people's characters are molded by their environment. Angola, like Liberia, like Sierra Leone, is resource-rich, a natural blessing that sometimes has the sad effect of diminishing the human drive for self-sufficiency, the ability and determination to maximize that which one has.

Profile: Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone had its third post-war elected government in November 2012. Not surprisingly, incumbent President Ernest Bai Koroma was re-elected for a second term with 58.7 per cent of votes cast and his party, All People’s Congress (APC), also won, with an increase of 8 seats to 67 of the 112 elected seats in Parliament. Carter Center Observers report that the election process was fair and transparent with a strong security presence along with the political party agents, international observers, and citizen observers from the National Election Watch (NEW) who visited all the polling centres. NEW reported these were calm and well organised and their personnel, including managers, data entry clerks, and observer facilitators, fulfilled their responsibilities with professionalism; they were receptive to observers' inquiries about the vote tabulation. A few demonstrations took place during the post-election period but were calmed down quickly.
