The height of great men is not achieved by sudden flight, but by their hard work and dedication to duty.
Over the years, the Executive Director of SLRSA (Sierra Leone Road Safety Authority), Dr. Sarah Finda Bendu has shown great devotion to duty with her unending initiatives and innovation.
With an equally hard working Management and Staff and a supportive Board, SLRSA has gone through a transformation unparalleled to any parastatal in recent times.
No wonder therefore that in recent months, Dr. Bendu has received so many meritorious awards and accolades presented to her by various organizations and other institutions nationally and internationally.
At a recent award ceremony, speaker after speaker heaped praises and also commended Dr. Sarah Finda Bendu and the entire Management, Board of Directors and stakeholders of SLRSA for leading a change at the parastatal.

Dr. Sarah Bendu explained that in developing the Road Safety Network Programme, she worked collectively with the management in going around the four corners of Sierra Leone.

Dr. Sarah Bendu told the Global Times in an interview that. “With God All Things Are Possible. That is why when you put your trust and hope in the Almighty God, you must be determined to work harder”, she said.
She added that whenever she was told that she has won an award (and she has won so many meritorious awards and accolades in recent times), she would always thank God Almighty for given her the foresight and strength to do her job.
She noted however that even in her moment of joy, the dedication of the SLRSA’s management and staff as well as the input of the Chairman, Board of Directors and stakeholders always comes to mind instantly.
For her, it’s a collective responsibility and a collective praise. That, she said, has made SLRSA great over the years.
