FCC Communications: Sierra Leone Telegraph: 10 March 2022:
Yesterday, Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr, councillors and staff of Freetown City Council joined a cultural parade led by the leaders of the 17 ethnic groups in Freetown, in celebration of 230 years (1792 – 2022), since the founding of Sierra Leone’s capital Freetown as the home of freed slaves – the Krios.
(Freetown At 230 Years Theme Song, featuring Blessing, Drizilik, Mello Seven and Raymond Allie)
The rich display of culture in the streets through music, outfits and dancing was a true testament of Freetown being the home of ethnic diversity.
We are proud that Freetown is home to all and we say a big thank you to all who made the parade a success as we continue to celebrate #FreetownAt230
