Freetown Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr will contest June 24th mayoral election

Sierra Leone Telegraph: 8 March 2023:

Freetown’s most popular and successful Mayor – Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr, has today confirmed that she will be running for re-election on June 24th, after completing her five-year term as the most hardworking mayor the city of Freetown has ever had, despite political witch-hunt by the ruing SLPP to remove her from office and prevent her from contesting the forthcoming election.

This morning she said: “On this International Women’s Day, I am pleased to announce that I am running for re-election as the Mayor of Freetown on 24th June 2023”.
