It can be recalled that also recently, the government and Sherbro Alliance Partners – a development company owned by film actor Idris Elba and Sierra Leonean entrepreneur – Siaka Stevens, announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in New York, to establish a strategic public-private partnership aimed at developing Sherbro Island as a city and an economic powerhouse.
