Schools in Sierra Leone are to reopen in March. Education Minister Minkailu Bah said that school fees would be subsidised for secondary school students to help parents. The ministry would also provide teaching and learning materials as well as ensuring schools were safe and disinfected.
State House sources say that President Koroma is also expected to announce an easing of restrictions on trading hours in the Western Area. Trading hours on Saturday will now end at 6:00 PM. But reports still indicate that the restrictions of trading on Sunday will remain the same.
