Collective Responsibility is a Cabinet Convention dating back to the 19th century. The Constitution of Sierra Leone refers to it thus:
“The Cabinet shall be collectively responsible to Parliament for any advice given to the President by or under the general authority of the Cabinet and for all things done by or under the authority of any Minister in the execution of his office, Section 60. (1). ”
What is more, the Sierra Leone Government Notes on Cabinet Procedure, include the Doctrine of Collective Responsibility that is in conformity with that found across the Commonwealth nations in letter and spirit as undertaken in the discussion below, but contrary to the views already expressed by some compatriots when referring to Dr. Kadi Sesay’s stewardship.

With the number of youths in Africa set to double by 2045, countries across the continent should boost job creation and help young people acquire new skills, according to the African Economic Outlook 2012. “Creating productive employment for Africa’s rapidly growing young population is an immense challenge but also the key to future prosperity”, say the authors in the foreword.
Co-written by the African Development Bank, the OECD Development Centre, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and the UN Development Program (UNDP), the report says youth are an opportunity for future economic growth.
Between 2000 and 2008, despite world-topping economic growth rates, and a better educated youth, Africa created only 16 million jobs for young people aged between 15 and 24.

Alusine Kamara is one of the prominent leaders in Sierra Leonean Muslim circles here in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The tall stately looking man has presided over several funerals, weddings and other occasions. He is a well respected man by many and his simple charm and charisma has earned him that respect. It was therefore with much shock that many found out last week that Kamara has been arrested by Fairfax, Virginia police. What is more shocking is the indictment that followed the arrest.
According to reports, Mr. Kamara was arrested in Alexandria, Virginia after a scuffle with two women who accused him of taking thousands of dollars from them with a promise to help them with immigration papers. A search in his car reportedly found enough evidence to back up the women’s claims. He was charged with six felony counts of obtaining money by false pretenses, two counts of forgery, and identity theft. He was transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
Alusine Kanu was convicted of killing 23-year-old Olusen Fashina of Lanham.
Fashina, who was studying criminal justice, was killed by Kanu on April 17 outside a house party. Authorities say the slaying stems from a fight over spilled drinks.
Kanu is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 23.
