1999-2009 - Sierra Leone - Evaluation of Policy Based Operations in the AfDB
Sierra Leone has over the period covered by this evaluation seen the end of an extremely destructive civil war that began in 1991 and finally ended at the start of 2002. Since then,, Sierra Leone has successfully conducted two general and presidential elections and two local elections. The 2002 election which saw President Kabbah re-elected in a landslide victory was judged free and fair by election observers as were the first local elections in 35 years that were held in 2004. The 2007 elections marked an important milestone in the consolidation of peace in Sierra Leone with a peaceful transfer of power to the All People’s Congress (APC) under President Koroma.
