Sierra Leoneans see a drop in their economic and living conditions, and disapprove of their government performance in running the country

Governance

A large majority of Sierra Leoneans believe their present economic and living conditions have worsened over the past year, findings from the latest Afrobarometer survey shows.

Most Sierra Leoneans perceive their government has performed ‘very badly’ in narrowing income gaps between the rich and the poor. However, a small percentage of Sierra Leoneans are optimistic the government’s economic measures will improve their living conditions in the next 12 months.

This is expected to have serious implications for a country that has been described as having one of the fastest growing economies in Africa.
