CONTEH -TURAY FAMILIES OF EAST TONKOLILI
Over the past few years, a number of Sierra Leoneans have written books
either to reflect on their political stewardship and that of the governments
in which they served, or on the recent tragic history of the country. I
am thinking here in particular of The Agony of a Nation (1996), a book
by the former Sierra Leone Government minister, Abdul Karim Koroma, and
Democracy by Force: A Study of International Military Intervention in the
Civil War in Sierra Leone 1999-2001 (2001), co-authored by Dr. Abass Bundu
and Dr. John Karefa-Smart, both also former ministers. The present book,
by me, belongs to a different genre. It is not political history
neither is it the boring and sometimes unconvincing attempt at self-justification
by a former government official. It is, more absorbingly, a piece
of genealogical history; the history, as its title indicates, of my family
Conteh-Turay families of the Tonkolili East Region of Sierra Leone
In this book the patriarch of my clan, my grandfather Alhaji Alimamy
Sorie, was Paramount Chief of Kunike Barina Chiefdom. He died in 1967 while
I was a student in St. Francis Secondary School in Makeni and only came
home during holidays to spend time with him acting as his private secretary.
What grandpa told me has now been woven into a beautiful whole in this
book. Not the least of the work s attractions is the multiple perspectives
from which the various relatives and figures in my life is depicted: that
of the child, the young adult, and the reflective diplomat. I spent some
time making a thorough research for this book which has over one hundred
photographs with 350 pages. I have written this book to educate my children
and numerous younger relations, (cousins, nephews, and nieces), many of
whom were born and live in the United States and Great Britain on our roots.
By describing at length the lives and careers of some members of my family
that became leading actors in the politics of Sierra Leone, I hope I am
making a small and modest contribution to the history of our country, Sierra
Leone. I hope this book will interest you and your family. Limited copies
are on sale for only Twenty-five dollars per copy and thirty United States
dollars by mail.
