On a rainy day in this year’s feast of Eid al-Adha, it could be recalled that two female residents of Tar Road Community were flowed in the heavy downpour along the waterway that connects the hillside communities of Ward 406 and 407 in Wellington.

This tragic occurrence which led to the death of two inseparable sisters, ages 17 and 20 aroused the sympathetic feelings of Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr of Freetown City Council to sympathize with the family of the deceased and subsequently made a stroll at the spot where similar fatalities had occurred over the past years; in a bid to assess and find ways of preventing future unfortunate happenings.

On Wednesday, 20th July 2022, the residents of the “Big Water Well Community” the point where this mournful incident occurred, a few metres from the Evangelical Model High School were amused to see the inception of a footpath bridge from a team of engineers headed by Councillor Agnes Marrah of Ward 407, Congo Water.

In a joyous mood, a Ward Development Committee Member Alpha Bedor Mansaray in few words described Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr as a true icon of development whose legacies remain conspicuous across the length and breadth of Freetown City.

Alpha Bedor concluded by extending his unrestrained thanks and appreciation to Councillor Agnes Marrah for her persistent strides in promoting developments in Congo Water.
