Sierra Leone Telegraph: 19 October 2015
Sierra Leone’s Presidential Flag-bearer aspirant for the opposition Sierra Leone’s Peoples Party (SLPP), Dr. Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella, has been awarded the 2015 Development Champion Award in absentia in Brussels, Belgium, in recognition of his outstanding commitment and contributions to African development.
Kandeh was noticeably absent at the ceremony in Brussels, because he was in Houston, Texas, attending his party’s convention in the USA, where he is reported to have wowed party stalwarts with his speech and developmental plans for his native, Sierra Leone.
In 2014, former AfDB President, Dr. Donald Kaberuka, was the recipient of the 2014 Development Award.
We will bring you more news on this, when Dr. Yumkella picks up the award in Brussels.
