President Bio Joins Others to Mourn the Late Justice Aiah Konoyima

State House, Freetown, Friday 14 September 2018 – His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio has joined many others to mourn the death of the Late Justice Aiah Daniel Konoyima at the Civic Laying Out Ceremony and Signing of the Book of Condolence at Miatta Conference Hall, Brookfields, Freetown.

Delivering a tribute on behalf of the government, Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Madam Priscilla Schwartz, described the late man as an illustrious and resourceful man who lived his life serving his nation. She said he was an example worthy of emulation because of his kind heart to helping humanity.

“He was one of Sierra Leone’s brilliant legal minds who had played an important role in the legal and judicial service in this country. He was always ready to help others and was a man of repute who carried out his work independently. He is a big loss and will definitely be missed for his professionalism,” she ended.

The Late Justice Konoyima, who passed away on Monday 27 September, was a renowned statesman who served as a State Counsel for many years before he was appointed as Administrator and Registrar General at the Office of the Administrator and Registrar General. He also served as the first Secretary of the Political Parties Registration Commission before he was appointed Judge of the High Courts of Sierra Leone where he retired and returned to his native home district of Kono.

Before his death, Justice Konoyima had just been nominated by the Attorney General for Presidential approval to serve on the Commission of Inquiry being set up to look into findings contained in the Governance Transition Team Report and other possible infractions of the former government.

Also in attendance were Vice President Dr Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh, the Mayor or Freetown, Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr (OBE), Chief Justice Abdulai Hamid Cham, and several patrons and national executive officials of the Sierra Leone People’s Party.
