@ pohboy: “What business do we have discussing strengthen Rule of Law with the British? Sone of the things we do are nauseating.  What is the meaning of 27 April 1961? Or are we still a British colony?”

@ SNghoni: “When did our government  start to have joint consultation on how our justice department works? Where is our country heading into. The British embassy has no reason to interferes into our justice department, it’s becoming too much.”

@SBabie2022: “Is Lisa the only diplomat in Sierra Leone? Is she the monitor. What is this hyper meddling? AG please show her the exist door if she comes hopping around your office. She wants to tamper with the court processes and the investigations. Drive her away fast!”

@ SNghoni: “If you guys are not ready to do your job, resign and let the British ambassador apply for the position. You better wake up from your colonial enslavement mentality.”
