Welcome Message from the President of the Republic of Sierra Leone and Commander-In-Chief of the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces (RSLAF),
His Excellency, Brigadier General (Rtd) Julius Maada Bio.
As Commander-in-Chief, it is with great pleasure that I warmly welcome you to the website of the Ministry of Defense.
This website offers a welcoming window into the exciting and exotic world of the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces.
It also offers a unique opportunity to showcase the Ministry and the Military to the general Sierra Leone public and the
wider world in a dynamic democratic scenery with the motive of enhancing and enriching cordial civil/military cohabitation.
This site further provides a clear and concise corridor into the administration and operations of the Ministry and its professional arm,
the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces. You can follow up the latest news, views, overviews, policies, projects and programs of this
Ministry get to know the administrative and professional staff; keep updated with the latest developments and activities in the world of the military; and many more.
As Sierra Leone delves deeper into the digital domain, it is but equally essential for the Military to be increasingly integrated into the ICT innovation.
The introduction and incorporation of ICT will equip and fortify our forces with current, comprehensive and sophisticated data and software programs critical
to support informed decision making; enable rapid and synchronized action; and provide rapid response to critical situations. It will serve our forces well
especially in our quest to bring peace to other parts of the world through our peacekeeping efforts. On this note, I thank the hard working staffs of the Ministry of
Defense who on a daily basis endeavor to maintain the standards and capabilities of well trained, disciplined, and modern military.
I wish you a pleasant experience as you explore this website and hope you will find it very informative and useful.
