Sierra Leone’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) and the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces (RSLAF) have issued a statement debunking a circulating publication on the proposed RSLAF 2023/2024 Recruitment application forms via social media.

The MoD and RSLAF clarifies that no official announcement or application form for recruitment into the RSLAF has been released. Documents circulating on social media claiming to be such are deemed fake and misleading. The Ministry emphasizes that this misinformation is a deliberate attempt to tarnish the esteemed image and credibility of the RSLAF, dismissing it as mere propaganda.

The public is urged to remain vigilant and refrain from engaging with any unauthorized recruitment materials. The Ministry assures that the general public will be duly informed of any legitimate recruitment activities when the need arises for interested Sierra Leoneans.

This announcement serves as a cautionary measure to thwart potential misinformation and maintain the transparency of the recruitment process. The MoD/RSLAF reaffirms its commitment to keeping the public well-informed and assures that any authentic recruitment initiatives will be communicated through official channels at the appropriate time.
