Construction of Sierra Leone’s Mamamah Airport to start December

11 October 2016

The construction of a long awaited Leone’s Mamamah Airport is now set to kick off in December Chinese Ambassador Zhao Yanbo has said.

Speaking during his country‘s 67th Independence celebration at the Embassy last week Zhao said that the current good working relationship with the county will continue despite the fact that he is the outgoing ambassador.

He said his government will start construction in December and it will be operational in three years.

Ambassador Zhao said even though he will not be around when the project will be commissioned by President Koroma, he is very happy that before leaving he has done everything possible for it to come to fruition.

Mamamah Airport is being built inland and from the capital to the airport will be less than one hour drive which makes it very accessible to all and at all times.
