Sierra Leone: Le200 Million Project to Modernize China House

The sum of two hundred million Leones (Le200m) has been set aside to transform the popular China House entertainment complex at Brookfields into a standard entertainment center of international class.

In an interview with the man in charge of the complex, former Minister of Lands in the erstwhile Sierra Leone People's Party government, Dr. Alfred BobsonSesay, he said they have raised over Le200m to modernize the facility to international standard.

He said they will add one more storey to the building with 12 bedrooms to be used as a guest house, while the entertainment center willcontinue to feature its usual traditional and live band performances.

Giving a thorough facelift to the center, he said, will see it attain international standard and services on offer would be made affordable so that all and sundry will have the opportunity of using the facility. He added that the complex will be well secured with modern security facilities installed to monitor the day-to-day business activities at the center.

Dr. Sesayfurther disclosed to Concord Times that they are undertaking the project on their own with no support from China or any other agency.

He said despite his affiliation with the main opposition party, the SLPP, he would do his best to promote the government's 'Agenda for Prosperity' for the development of Sierra Leone. He said they had already informed the car-wash boys to quit the land they are currently occupying as it is part of China House's property.
