The 10th death anniversary of the late Alhaji Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, former President of Sierra Leone, will be commemorated on May 19, 2024. The event is scheduled to take place at the Bintumani Conference Center, starting at 12 noon. Attendees are requested to adhere to a dress code of white, symbolizing peace and remembrance.

Alhaji Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, who passed away in 2014, served as the President of Sierra Leone from 1996 to 1997 and then again from 1998 to 2007. His leadership is notably remembered for his efforts in ending the brutal civil war that plagued the country throughout the 1990s. Kabbah played a pivotal role in negotiating peace agreements and implementing post-war reconstruction and development programs, which were crucial in stabilizing Sierra Leone during a tumultuous period in its history.

The commemoration will bring together government officials, diplomats, dignitaries, and citizens who wish to honor the legacy of President Kabbah. The program is expected to feature speeches from prominent figures, reflections on Kabbahโ€™s contributions to national peace and unity, and cultural performances celebrating Sierra Leonean heritage.

The event will not only pay tribute to his memory but also serve as a reminder of the enduring importance of peace and unity in Sierra Leone.
