Tony Blair writes about Sierra Leone in The Sun

16 July 2010

This week, read Tony Blair piece in The Sun reflecting on Gleneagles five years on and his African Governance Initiative charity’s work in Sierra Leone.

As Prime Minister, my first major interaction with Sierra Leone was when it was going through a tragic civil war.

Britain stepped in and helped the government there to end it. We can all feel immense pride for the action of our brave Armed Forces.

Today, with the country’s President Koroma now in charge, Sierra Leone is looking toward a brighter and more prosperous future, and I am proud to be working with him and playing my part.

Alongside the advice I give, I have a team of expert advisers who work at the very centre of government – it’s called the Africa Governance Initiative, a charity that works with some of Africa’s most talented and visionary leaders to make government better.
