The maiden edition of Sierra Eye Magazine entered circulation in 2006 and has never looked back. Founded by Basita Michael, a lawyer by profession, the quarterly magazine has established itself as a top tier publication. Sierra Eye strives to provide a well-rounded reading experience by providing apolitical, unbiased, non-discriminatory and high level critical analysis and commentary on hot button issues affecting the nation.
In an environment rife with political, social and economic problems, Sierra Eye shines the spotlight on worrying trends while identifying silver linings wherever they may exist. By highlighting these issues Sierra Eye aims to provoke national debate that will further raise awareness on national issues.
Each edition of Sierra Eye has a circulation of 2,500 in Freetown, Lungi, Bo, Kenema and Makeni. From politics, sports and the economy to arts, entertainment and culture, we cover it all to bring you a rich, informative and exciting experience.
