Sierra Leone is the only country in Africa offering people from the diaspora an incentive to come back to the land of their ancestors . Through African Ancestry DNA testing a person from the diaspora can attain Sierra Leonean citizenship if their DNA is a match with one of the 16 tribes within the borders of Sierra Leone. My name is Rakin Khaliq aka Ndapie Kailie and through African Ancestry DNA testing , I discovered that I’m 99.7% Mende and I received my Sierra Leonean citizenship back in January 2021 , and since then I have decided to be an ambassador for The Republic of Sierra Leone. Please don’t hesitate to contact me so I can help you navigate the homecoming Pilgrimage and citizenship process. Hope to see you in the motherland family!
