In an exclusive interview with the Chief Administration Human Resource Officer of Africell Sierra Leone, Andrew S. Fatorma said that most of their staff are challenged with housing problems which has been a perennial constraint for most staff members.

According to Mr Fatorma, Africell as a company that seeks the welfare of its staff, wants their long serving staff to own their own houses.  Adding that their first target is to secure the land which will eventually be improved as long as the company stays in business.

“It’s a loyalty program and employees that have been providing dedicative service to the company for couples of years will be the beneficiaries”, he affirmed.

He continued that during the launched of the project they were able to identified fifty-one (51) staff that were qualified in terms of years of service.

He disclosed that the land for the Afri-city is located at the York village in Freetown Peninsula, furthering that the land has been acquired by the company and very soon the staff will be assigned their plots of land, adding that they will meet all necessary conditions the government and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) require.

“We’re basically looking at large plots by dividing it into various portions and so far we have about seventy four and staff will benefit from these portions”’ he Lamented.

He reiterated that they will reserve some plots for basic amenities such as a playground, sports club, kids playing ground etc.

He pointed out that it’s too early to name a price tag, adding that the initiative has just started and it’s an ongoing expense with a huge capital that will be beneficial to their employees.

He concluded that the staff of Africell Sierra Leone will be the beneficiaries, adding that it will only be a brand for the company where the employees are the owner of

this Afri-city.

He noted that the engagement process with the beneficiaries is quite clear as to how they will be maintaining the Afri-city which will be communicated to them as time goes on, stating that as a company one of their goals is striving to meet their Corporate Social Responsibility.
