When Ebun Jusu left home she never expected her country’s president to call her back.
Jusu left her native Sierra Leone to study law in the United States. She stayed on and gained a wealth of experience in banking and law and a reputation as a top barrister and solicitor. So well-respected was she that President Ernest Bai Koroma contacted her directly and asked to return to Sierra Leone as Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
Today, when she’s able to take a little time out from her ministerial duties, Jusu serves on a variety of associations and foundations including the Sierra Leone Bar Association and the Freetown Street Kids Foundation, an organization she personally founded.
