The Director of the Sierra Leone Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC) has said that Sierra Leoneans celebrate politicians who always pull them apart rather than celebrate writers who bring them together.   Elvis Gbanabom Hallowell, spoke at the launch of a book titled ‘Gomna’s children’ at the British Council Hall in Freetown.   He said if Sierra Leoneans should have the culture of writing books and reading, a publishing house should be provided in the country.   He said there were many Sierra Leonean writers making a mark in the world but they were not known in Sierra Leone.   Mr Hallowell said up till now there was no way Sierra Leonean writers could publish or showcase their work in the country.   Dr. Siaka Kroma the author of the book said he wanted to tell the Sierra Leonean history from colonial Era to present day from the eyes of a Sierra Leonean. He said ‘Gomna’s Children’ was the first of three titles he would publish in the near future.    He said as the country celebrates its fiftieth independence anniversary, it was also a time for reflection for people to remember what he described as ‘the good old days’.
