    The Africoin Report #2: My Trip to Kenema City

    August 14th, 2015 by cherotech
    I was born in Kenema in 1992, during the rebel war. Kenema was among the towns that the rebels captured from early 1997 to 2000. They killed thousands and destroyed properties, which led to the backwardness of the people there and the country as a whole. ... My trip to Kenema was another dream come true. I was eager to return back to my childhood town that I left in 2009 when I was 17. I was welcomed there like a prince, due to my hard work. People promoted my visit via social media, and I felt at home again. I brought them news of a great technology that will change the mindsets of many in the future.… The good news was bitcoin.
