Sierra Leone Parliament will today Thursday 8th April 2021 hold a State Funeral and official laying-in ceremony for late Former Vice President Dr. Albert Joe Demby at the Forecourt, Parliament Building, Tower Hill in Freetown at 10:00am.

The Office of the Clerk of Parliament has invited Members of Parliament, government ministers and interested members of the general public to attend the event.

Before his death on 20th March 2021, the late Dr Albert Joe Demby served in the second most high position in the country.

While in retirement he has had some controversial political hiccups, like leaving the SLPP and declaring for the NGC party.

Dr Demby served this country when rebels evicted the democratically elected government from the seat of power and sent them into exile.
