Just so you know...

Kenema is pronounced "Keh-neh-ma"

Kenema is a district in Sierra Leone, West Africa and was particularly ravaged by the war that took place in the 1990’s. Kenema is the diamond mining area of Sierra Leone so the reasons for trying to take over this area go without saying. Consequenlty there are a disproportionate number of people that are now amputees as a result of ‘rebels’ cutting off people’s limbs as punishment or warning.

Despite this life goes on, diamonds are still mined people still exist and live a little at times. The name Kenema was chosen as the area is rich with natural resources such as diamonds and iron, it was also chosen as there is a certain reslience amongst the people of Kenema which is rare, just like a diamond! Kenema & Co’s products are a reflection of the rich natural resources, quality and strength of Kenema district.
