About the author: 
Born in Omaha Nebraska and raised in Sierra Leone, Batilloi Isaac Warritay is a Communication for Development specialist with an extensive background in theatre as an actor and director. A graduate from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, he worked for several years as a radio and television broadcaster. As Chief of Communication for UNICEF in the 90’s, he worked in Angola and Nigeria and eventually served as UNICEF Deputy Representative, in Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and Sao Tome & Principe. Now retired, he lives in Sierra Leone, West Africa. He is married with two adult children.
As the years passed after his parents died, Batilloi Warritay realized that he was beginning to forget their life stories and that many in the family did not know the history of their name or the origin of their Mandingo clan. He has therefore written this well-documented biography of his father, who was born into a leading Mandingo, Muslim family that had migrated from Mali to Sierra Leone. Although raised to become an Islamic teacher, Sylmadie Warritay left home as a teenager and entered the famous Albert Academy in Freetown. It was in this school for boys, where, to his family’s distress, he eventually converted to Christianity, and began a peripatetic life as a leading Protestant teacher, pastor, editor, and publisher.
