According to a report from the Ministry of Information and Communications, Sewah gave an explanation of the intricacies of the job and showed the Ministers and entourage the engineering matrix of the Jui ADM site.

The delegation then drove and converged on the ADM site at Mile 38. In a similar exercise the Ministers and entourage were taken on a conducted tour of the fibre optic ADM site. The various machines were put on display for them to view the engineering work that was done.

The Ministers also inspected the fibre optic ADM sites at Rogbere, Lungi, Lunsar, Makeni and Masingbe.

At Lungi, the Project Supervisor James Cobba told the delegation that the fibre optic ADM co-exisst with Sierratel in the same building and feeds on Sierratel energy and air conditioning.


Senior officials in the Ministry however suggested that the ADM be provided with its own air conditioning and power source.

At Lunsar, Mr Cobba led the delegation to what he referred to as the outdoor site. A thorough inspection was done by the visiting team. Suggestions were made for a back-up generator and adequate security to man the site.

Moving towards Lunsar, it was realised that the fibre cables were overhead instead of underground. The delegation expressed fear of bush fires as proximity of the cable to the ground was limited.

In Makeni the ADM site is also housed in the Sierratel structure sharing the facilities of Sierratel.

At Masingbe, the visitors inspected the ADM site. They observed that there were some leakages from the fuel tanks and a suggestion was also made for a back-up generator.


At the end of the tour on Sunday, the Minister Mohamed Bangura expressed satisfaction over the work done so far. He however advised that a small technical team be put together to highlight the minimal lapses for amendment. The Chinese team consented to correct their mistakes on the project.
