Get them off the air!

Reign of terror

It is estimated that as many as half of the 15,000 former rebel fighters in Sierra Leone are children.
During the mid-1990s, this child army killed, abducted, raped and maimed thousands of their fellow countrymen, famously imposing their reign of terror by hacking off the limbs of victims with machetes.

"These people are not looked upon in a positive light," said Mr George, who runs an internet consultancy called Kizuki based in Norway. "But at the end of the day, these are Sierra Leoneans. We cannot just dig a hole and cover it up. We have to deal with them." .
"If you have a population that is information literate, things like diseases and other problems are going to be able to be tackled in a more serious way than if you have a population that is information illiterate," he said.
Damaged economy
Developing Sierra Leone as a regional centre for information technology may prove an uphill struggle.
Although rich in diamonds, the country's development has been blighted by acute political instability since independence in 1961.
The long-running civil war displaced nearly half the country's 4.5 million population and left the economy in ruins.
