You might not be aware of some of Pujehun District's unique characteristics. Pujehun District is without a doubt one of Sierra Leone's most beautiful districts.

Pujehun is a rural town that serves as the district's commercial and administrative hub. The Mende ethnic group makes up the majority of Pujehun's population.

Pujehun was named after Nyagua, a powerful Mende warrior who lived in the nearby village of Panguma. When Nyagua and his men went to battle, they rested at the site of the current village. There was a lot of pepper growing in town at the time, which the Mende called "pujei." When they arrived in that area, they referred to it as Pujehun.

According to a post on Sidie Sheriff's Facebook page, a reputable Social Scientist with very accurate knowledge for analyzing contemporary social and economic issues with historical perspectives on social media.

Unique Qualities About Pujehun District
QUALITY NUMBER ONE: Pujehun District is perhaps Sierra Leone’s most ethnically diverse district.
Also, the Tiwai Island in Barrie Chiefdom together with Lake Mape and Mabesi are among Africa’s top tourist potentials if developed.
The District has 12 Chiefdoms made up of:

• 4 Krim Chiefdoms (Kpanga Kabondeh, Kpanga Krim, Yakemo Kpukumu Krim and Mano Sakrim)
• 3 Vai Chiefdoms (Soro Gbeima, Gallinas Perri, and Kpaka Chiefdoms)
• 1 Gola Chiefdom (Makpele),
• 1 Sherbro/Bullom Chiefdom (Malen), and
• 3 Mende Chiefdoms (Barrie, Futa Kpeje, Sowa)
However, all five major ethnicities mentioned above, fused with others such as Fula and Madingo, have been melted into one linguistic pot – that is the Mende Language. So everyone in this District is now Mende speaking.

QUALITY NUMBER TWO: Pujehun District is perhaps Sierra Leone’s most prosperous district in natural resource endowment and diversity.
This District has:
• Oil/Petroleum – the country’s largest oil pit is around the Sulima Waters
• Diamonds – only in Pujehun is the Gold Color Diamond Found

***The Gola Forest which Pujehun shares with Liberia is one of Africa’s top 5 biologically diverse forests regarding medicinal plant varieties and wildlife.

Also, the Tiwai Island in Barrie Chiefdom together with Lake Mape and Mabesi are among Africa’s top tourist potentials if developed.

The District also has high river navigation potentials – with the Wanjei, Moa, and Mano Rivers linked to the Atlantic Ocean on one end and to several tributaries that are navigable to several villages and tourism destinations in Sierra Leone and Liberia.

Dr. John Idriss Lahai, the whistle-blower for fake degrees is "Social Medially dead". If you recall, in the year 2022, Dr. John Idriss Lahai, a whistle-blower who exposed a phony degree, attracted the attention of every patriotic Sierra Leonean. His activity came to light after it was found that numerous Sierra Leoneans had received honorary PhDs from a Waterloo, Western Rural District postsecondary institution that was not accredited. Even well-known Sierra Leoneans, including the previous Inspector General of Police, were given honorary PhDs by the university known as Dominion University. When it was determined that the aforementioned university lacks the integrity to grant such a credential, the IG subsequently declined the offer. Dominion University PHD award ceremony From this point on, Dr. John Idriss Lahai began to expose Sierra Leoneans who, in his opinion, had earned questionable academic credentials.

A scammer from Sierra Leone has been captured by Guinean police.

  The person in the picture is actually Abdulai Jalloh, despite the fact that he is identified as a lecturer from Njala University under the name of Dr. Kanu. In early January of this year, he posted in a WhatsApp group in Kambia that he had scholarship chances and could help people acquire government pin codes, among other things, but that the offer was only valid for those from the South and east.   Someone sent him NLe1,500 for overseas study without realizing he was a scammer.  The scammer claimed that the entire application process for the scholarship cost 3,000 New Leone.  Later, the contacted person realized that he was not who he had been representing himself to be, and he immediately blocked the victim of his syndicate.  He once more perpetrated the same crime against Molai, another individual, and someone else.  In the pretense of an international scholarship, he demanded 3000 New Leones from each person. He accepted the cash and fled without telling them where he was.  The m
