Tourism and a visiting delegation from Hull, a twin city of Freetown were the main topics of discussion at the weekly Sierra Leone Government press briefing.

Chaired by Deputy Government Spokesman Ajibu Jalloh, only brief mention was made of William Wilberforce, a native of Hull whose endeavors as an abolitionist led to the founding of the Sierra Leone Colony for freed slaves late in the 18th century.

The Acting Minister of Tourism and Cultural Affairs Kadija Seisay's statement highlighted the progress her ministry is making in promoting tourism. She later answered questions regarding the controversial demolition of houses at Lumley Beach.

Government Spokesman Abdulai Baratay updated reporters on government activities during the past week.
