Day Five and Six: Comprehensive National Survey of Tourism Sites and Facilities in Sierra Leone
*A visit to Foday Saybana Sankoh’s Grave*
We left Magburaka in the early hours of Thursday February 21. Using the route that connects Magburaka and Mile 91 we enjoyed the every moment of the journey.
Our first assignment was to locate Masang village, Mamuntha Mayossoh Chiefdom, Tonkolili District, the birthplace of Revolutionary United Front warload, Foday Saybana Sankoh.
Led by the Headman of Masang, we visited Foday Sankoh’s grave at the back of his now fallen home. There lies his grave with the inscription.
“In loving memory of Foday Saybana Sankoh, former leader of Sierra Leone rebel group, Revolutionary United Front (RUF) died July 29, 2003, aged 65 years. Your presence we miss, your memory we treasure, loving you always, forgetting you never.”
