“What is the role of the EU in supporting developing countries”
The Minister of Tourism and Culture, Memunatu Pratt over the weekend took to her Twitter handle asking if the European Union Mission (EU) is a political party in Sierra Leone.
This comes after the EU gives regular updates on development projects they have funded in Sierra Leone. According to Pratt’s tweet, she asked why the EU is behaving as if they are in competition with the government and reiterates that the EU’s role is to support governments all across the world.
“What is the role of the EU in supporting developing countries. Is it about claiming credit for what they have pledged to do as development partners to compete with the government as if they are political rivals,” said Pratt.
This has brought mixed reactions across different social media platforms from Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad.
