I was sworn in as Mayor of Freetown on 11/5/2018. Three years on, I am grateful for what we have achieved together, conscious of the challenges that we face and confident that collectively we can overcome these challenges in order to #TransformFreetownpiped.kavin.rock/H-6itkjPvTQ
Today visited 11th Sept disaster sites. With support of anonymous Sierra Leonean UK-based donor, we are supporting victims & survivors. We continue to advocate for #LandUsePlanning and an environmentally sensitive #BuildingPermitRegime to save lives &property. #ClimateAdaptation
I just registered! I waited for my nearest center to open in Phase II. My process was smooth & I thank the ECSL staff. However I am aware that first time registrants in Freetown are still facing challenges, being told that they must have birth certificates, contrary to the law.
I am calling on ECSL to accept all documents as per Sect24(1) 2022 Public Elections Act so that first time registrants are not disenfranchised! With all the challenges to date, also calling on ECSL to extend the registration period so all eligible citizens can register!
Short term GAIN
For long term PAIN
Why cut down trees TODAY
And suffer from flooding & landslides TOMORROW?
#EndDeforestationNow#ClimateChangeIsReal & will continue to affect lives & livelihoods if we fail to collectively act now.
We have #OnlyOneEarth and we must protect it.
@ArshtRock Is proud to co-host and be a part of this urgent conversation. 80% of the people displaced by climate change are women. 40% of the poorest households are headed by women. Focusing on #women & girls accelerates solutions for everyone. @yakisawyerr@KimberlyGire
We're in New York today to join a discussion on ‘Women In Cities On The Frontlines Of Climate Risk’.
We look forward to a thought-provoking roundtable on what more can be done to get timely, predictable & needs informed money to women at the frontline of climate risk.
Yesterday I attended #ClintonGlobalInitiative reception hosted by Former Pres Bill Clinton & Hillary Clinton. Was an honor to meet both along with Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera, AFDB President Akinwumi Adesina & New York Mayor Eric Adams. #TransformFreetown
