Popular Lawyer and social activist Augustine Sorie-Sengbe Marrah expressed his frustration on social media regarding the lack of basic necessities in his community.

Marrah highlighted the absence of both electricity and piped water, stating that his community is not connected to the public utilities grid.

Expressing his dissatisfaction, Marrah tweeted   “This morning I woke up after 24 hrs (I know some have gone days) without a wink of electricity—of course no pipe-borne water because my community is not connected to the public utility— I began to ponder on what aspect of our basic necessities of life our post-war leaders have really solved—even if not completely. SADNESS DESCENDED ON ME,”

Marrah is a well-respected figure in Sierra Leone, known for his dedication to human rights, democracy, and the rule of law. He has faced intimidation, threats, and public shaming for his activism, but continues to advocate for his community.
