COME, I’LL SHOW YOU

HOW EBOLA QUICKENED CORRUPTION

Foday’s son has broken his leg. Treatment is expensive — more than Foday can afford with his current job. He works as a police officer, manning a road block that was set up due to the Ebola epidemic. Foday decides to take advantage of the situation and begins only allowing people who offer him a bribe through. When he’s caught by a journalist, she appeals to his conscience, and Foday realises that corruption isn’t the right way. But how else is he going to find the money for his son’s treatment?

COME, I’LL SHOW YOU THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN

SIERRA LEONE

Sierra Leone (officially the Republic of Sierra Leone) borders Guinea in the north and Liberia in the southeast. Freetown is the country’s capital and economic centre. English is the official language of this former British colony, but most people speak Krio.
>/br>
Over a thousand schools were destroyed during the civil war that lasted from 1991 to 2002. Following the Ebola epidemic (2014-2016), the country is now working to rebuild state and social infrastructure. Both Sierra Leone’s constitution and the 2004 Education Act mandate nine years of compulsory basic education, but full compliance is not possible due to a lack of schools and teachers. The literacy rate of the adult population in 2015 was 48.1% (women: 37.7%, men: 58.7%).
>/br>
Sierra Leone has a great variety of media. After a long debate, 2013 saw the passing of a freedom of information law. Sierra Leone ranked 85th out of 180 countries on the 2020 World Press Freedom Index, published by Reporters without Borders.
