Credible reports on the desk of New Age have exposed the multi-million dollar timber trade in Sierra Leone which has been ongoing at the detriment of the country’s environment.

To his credit, when Julius Maada Bio was elected on April 4 2018, he banned the timber trade on April 9, only for him to lift the ban on June 28 and handed it over to one of his political stooges and strong supporters, Babadie Kamra, who is allegedly using the trade to make serious money for which government is reportedly getting pittance.

On the other hand, Barbadie Kamara has indeed confirmed to New Age that he is a business man and will take whatever money he wants from business men for the timber export on the pretext of operational costs.

Details on this in subsequent editions.
