Day Four: Tuesday February 19, 2019 Comprehensive Survey of Tourism and Cultural Resources in Sierra Leone
The Team took an inventory of the railway bridge relic in Magbankoh village, Tonkolili District, arts and crafts workstations and others.
The bridge connects Bombali and Tonkolili through the Rokel River. All across Sierra Leone, relics of the Rails are scattered in different shapes and sizes.
At Mamunta, relics of the Train Station signpost remain intact.
The Team held Focussed Group Discussions with few Paramount Chiefs in the Tonkolili District. They lamented that the cultural resource base of Sierra Leone was dwindling due to varied factors and expressed optimism that much could be done to reclaim the nation’s heritage.
The Team surveyed the arts and crafts work facilities in Magburaka.
