Recent Sierra Leone
In 1979 a one-party
government was established. By 1984-85 protests by students & public employees led to the
restoration of multiparty elections. In 1992 a coup led to the rule of Capt. Valentine
Strasser. Strasser was
both corrupt & unable to manage the country. His rule threatened the
stable economy of Sierra Leone until he
was overthrown by army officers in 1996. Multiparty
elections were held & a new prime minister elected. Civil unrest
remains in northern Sierra
