Sierra Leone’s former High Commissioner to The Gambia and former Senior Presidential Adviser in the SLPP administration of Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, Ambassador Alhaji Morikeh Fofana passed away in Freetown yesterday after a protracted illness.
Ambassador Morikeh Fofana served as Dean of the Diplomatic Corps in The Gambia before he was recalled.
After the SLPP lost the 2007 general elections, Ambassador Morikeh Fofana resorted to his leisure time profession of writing.
He wrote and published several articles in the Global Times under his popular and well read column, “Ambassador-At-Large”.
Family sources say he will be buried on Sunday.
