My own admittedly relatively limited experience with networking in Africa has always been that people truly, honestly want to help make things better whenever it's reasonably possible (e.g. you obviously can't break local laws, or ignore a regulator). The attitude is generally very very good, compared to what we've seen in some other regions of the world. That being said, I have no experience with Sierra Leone in particular so can't help out in this case..

Best regards,

I am sure it could resolve the discussion and the topic easier and more helpful, if you can line out what exactly is the issue and where help is needed, and not comparing and generalizing the order of a circuit for a whole continent to walking or passing by the idea of a hell. That is pretty unfair.

We don’t have any business in Africa, but I’d like to listen and understand.

This is what I'm also trying to get to, albeit the long-way around.

That said, the OP did speak of Freetown, so.

If I can get more detail, I can reach out to some folk that run network in those parts and see if they can help.

My/our expertise is more eastern and southern Africa.
