The minister is in London to attend the ICT Ministerial Forum at the Commonwealth but seized the opportunity to breeze into the BBC office in Portland Place, Central London.

In his meeting with BBC’s Edwards, Minister Bangura said: “I am personally extending an invitation to you guys to see for yourselves what our government has been doing over the years.”

Desperate to showcase the beauties of Sierra Leone and his government especially the major infrastructural development taking place in the country that has been deliberately swept under the carper, Minister Bangura has instructed his Permanent Secretary to prepare an invitation on behalf of his government to the BBC team to come to Sierra Leone.

The minister also engaged with some of the BBCs presenters and producers on individual basis including Sierra Leonean born Josephine Hazeley, David Amanor and Veronic Edwards who shared a memorable experience on Sierra Leone particularly her meeting with Sierra Leone’s First Lady, Mrs. Sia Nyama Koroma.

The BBC team was so delighted that the minister made himself available for interview – something quite unfamiliar with African politicians.


Minister Bangura’s interview on the BBC was aired live on the BBC Focus on Africa yesterday Monday 13th June 2016.
