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

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
