It is so disappointing that one of the acclaimed best ministerial appointments cannot even recite the National Pledge properly.

Reacting to the audio, one of Sierra Leone’s finest rappers, LAJ wrote: “R yeri Sylvia blaiden dae read salone pledge hmmm smh..biyo na so so big woman talk na e pack pa ram twww shameful ..den e na minister back lol.”

Listen to the the audio below and See the correct version of the National Pledge below as you listen.

I pledge my love and loyalty to my country Sierra Leone;
I vow to serve her faithfully at all times;
I promise to defend her honour and good name;
Always work for her unity peace, freedom and prosperity;
And put her interest above all else.
So help me God.



Do you think the minister is competent enough to perform her duties?
