Kosonike: A Portrait of a Visionary

By Dr Michael Nicholas Wundah

This biography skillfully captures the life and times of one of the illustrious Sierra Leoneans, emeritus professor Kosonike Koso-Thomas.*

Kosonike is a visionary, a philanthropist, and one of the most successful civil engineers in the West African subregion.

Koso-Thomas is also a prolific writer. Among his fortes are autobiographies, biographies, and sentimental and aesthetic free-verse poetry.

He has successful painting exhibitions to his credit in the United Kingdom and Sierra Leone. The book delves bravely into uncharted waters and reveals some contentious issues raised by conspirators during his tenure of office as the principal of Fourah Bay College and vice chancellor of the University of Sierra Leone.
