British Royal Pays Courtesy Call on VP Jalloh

Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex, Sophie Rhy-Jones during her visit to Sierra Leone on Wednesday 22nd January 2020 paid a courtesy call on Vice President Dr Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh at his Tower Hill office, Freetown.

Her talk with the Vice President centred on women’s education, health and meaningful participation in politics, security and justice.

She spoke about the need to support survivors of sexual violence and to call for an end to sexual and gender-based violence whilst reaffirming the strong bilateral relationship UK and Sierra Leone share.

VP Juldeh Jalloh welcomed Countess Sophie Rhy Jones and informs her about the trying times the government is going through, coming from civil war. He notifies the royal that a lot has been done by the government during the post-conflict reconstruction period, with massive support from the development partners to change the narrative of women in the country; through setting up of institutions such as the Human Rights Commission, National Commission for Democracy, and viable civil society organisations such as 50-50, Women’s Forum to advocate for women’s rights.
