Some interesting facts about Bo City.

Bo, also known as Bo City, is Sierra Leone's second largest city by landscape/geographical location (after Freetown) and the largest city in the Southern Province. Bo is the district's capital and administrative center.
Bo is one of Sierra Leone's most ethnically diverse cities. Many of Sierra Leone's ethnic groups have a significant presence in the city, with the Mende ethnic group forming the majority, followed by Temne, Mandingo, Fula, and others. Bo is the primary residence of the Mende people, who make up the majority of the city's population.
The city's population is religiously diverse, with Muslims and Christians predominating.
Bo's modern development began in 1889, with the arrival of the Sierra Leone Government Railway, and it became an educational center in 1906, with the establishment of the Bo Government Secondary School.

It served as the capital of the Sierra Leone Protectorate from 1930 until independence in 1961. The city serves as the administrative hub for the Southern Province. After Freetown, Bo is Sierra Leone's most important transportation, commercial, and educational center.
The people of Bo are known for their tenacity, resistance, and hospitality. The town was named after the generosity of its residents. An elephant was killed near what is now known as the Bo Parking Lot. People came from the surrounding villages to claim their share. Because the amount of meat was so large, the hunter spent days distributing it, and the words "Bo-lor" (which in Mende language means "this is yours," in reference to the meat) were uttered so frequently that the elders and visitors decided to name the place Bo. "Bo-lor" also means "this is Bo" in Mende.

Dr John Lahai drops a real clanger...lecturers react

Evidence has surfaced that contradicts one of John Idriss Lahai's claims. And, as I've already stated, it's a clear sign that not everything he writes is true. He is doing the right thing, but depending entirely on rumor may jeopardize his kindness to Sierra Leone. Brima Ronnie Kargbo, a youthful and charismatic Sierra Leonean who works for NATCOM as the Director of Administration and Human Resource Management Director, was featured in a publication by John Idriss Lahai. In an exact paraphrase of his "nemakui" English writing skills, Lahai claimed: "Brima Ronnie Kargbo indeed started his Bachelor's degree studies at Njala University. It is also true that he abandoned the course halfway and moved to the UK (this was during the latter part of the civil war: 1996/1997-ish). As such, what is not true, and for which Njala University should investigate (to verify my claim) and, thereafter, sue Brima Ronnie Kargbo for forgery of their certificate (a
