Ban Ki Moon arrives today at the start of a two day visit to Sierra Leone.
This visit is largely to celebrate 15 years of UN peace keeping and peace building operations in Sierra Leone, which comes to an end on the 31st March 2014.

For the UN there is something to celebrate, and for Sierra Leone we believe there is something to be grateful for. The fact that they (UN) came, they gavetheir all; some died, to give us a new lease of life is something we should be grateful for.
