Tension Rises in Sierra Leone Ahead of the Second Round of Presidential Elections

In Sierra Leone, the situation is tense between supporters of the two candidates qualified for the second round. Violence has erupted in the country since last week.
The country that still has the aftermath of a civil war faces violence between the two rounds of elections. Several incidents have been reported in several towns across the country. Port Loko (in the north), Kono and Kailahun (in the east), and Bo (in the South).

A member of the Electoral Commission was even injured and hospitalized. This situation worries observers who called for calm and tolerance. Diplomatic authorities are not on the margins of these calls for appeasement. The embassies of Britain, Germany and the United States, as well as the European Union, appealed for calm to all supporters.


Samura Kamara came out ahead of the first round. He will face Julius Maada Bio on March 27 at the polls.
