President, Dr. Julius Maada Bio, and the First Lady, Dr. Fatima Maada Bio on the 31st August 2022 sympathized with citizens affected by the August 28 2022 mudslide at the Looking Town and Culvert Communities in the East End of Freetown.

They reached out to the victims of the disastrous mudslide and flooding giving them courage further telling them that they should know that the Government is there to help them but said the process should begin with registration so that they will help them with basic supplies.

Addressing the affected persons at the Culvert Community, President Bio sympathized with them and told them how thankful he is to God for His mercy upon their lives.

“I thank God that you all survived the floods, I am happy you all are alive and no deaths were recorded here as in the Looking Town Community where we lost six people. May their Souls Rest in Peace,” the President consoled.

He encouraged and advised them to take good care of the environment in order to prevent the reoccurrence of such a disaster.

The President ended by letting the victims know that the National Disaster Management Agency (NDMA)  is currently registering all affected persons so that the Government will help them with some supplies.

In her words of consolation, the First Lady disclosed that she fully understands the pain associated with losing loved ones especially under such an unfortunate circumstance.

She consoled the families and encouraged them to accept the unfortunate event as the will of Allah.

The First Lady also used the forum as an opportunity to recount the unfortunate attack on the nation on August 10, noting that it was sad that we lost security personnel in such cowardice spearheaded by desperate citizens.

She called on the citizens to stop putting their lives on the line for politicians who will never encourage or use their kids or family members in acts of political violence.

Madam Fatima Bio advised Sierra Leoneans to invest their energies on productive activities that will help develop the country and desist from acts of destruction.

She called on the women to make good use of the support and love being showed to them by President Bio whom, she said, has prioritized education and women’s empowerment.

According to her, President Bio operates an inclusive Government that appoints people from all tribes and regions to top positions.
