The Senegalese construction company, Compagnie Sahelienne d’Entreprise (CSE), has threatened to pull out of Sierra Leone over unpaid monies for construction work done for the by government, sources said last Friday.


CSE is a road construction company with about half a dozen contracts currently in progress. The company has however been blamed for delay in delivering, although it has itself severally blamed the situation on the government’s failure to pay its money as agreed.

Media reports on Friday cited anonymous sources claiming that the Country Director of CSE had ordered all its workers, both Senegalese and Sierra Leoneans to shutdown operations.

Several of CSE employees, mainly unskilled workers, risk losing their jobs if the threats materialise.
