SIERRA LEONE: University runs out of paper for exams

Students at Sierra Leone's respected Fourah Bay College were unable to take their final exams because of a lack of paper, reports the BBC.

The Principal, Professor Thomas Yormah, told the more than 4,000 angry students on campus that the exams had been postponed until new stationary arrived next week. "This is a shame to our society," one student told the BBC.

In February, the college's first semester exams were delayed by two weeks as it lacked classroom furniture. Yormah told the BBC there had been "some hitch" in preparing the examination booklets, but promised a commission of enquiry would get to the bottom of the matter.
