It’s the images that have been going around social media in Sierra Leone and the diaspora. The itemized compensation demands of Sierra Leone’s parliament members. In addition to their salary demands, they are asking a vehicle allowance, rent allowance, and a wardrobe allowance. Given Sierra Leone’s economic situation it is no surprise that people are shocked and outraged at the figures in this proposal. While many have been appalled a few belief that such compensation demands are justified and appropriate for high ranking members of government. That if they are paid handsomely it will curb corruption and incentivize better performance while in office. With one of the least developed economies in the world one can’t help but think that perhaps these funds can be put to better use to develop various sectors. It will be very interesting to see how President Bio responds to this.
