Kono is in the Eastern Area which is a District of Sierra Leone in its own right, which derived from the word (TAMAKONO), meaning wait for me there; with a broken city call Koidu Town and a prominent and developed town during SLST and NDMC Yengema.
Kono District produces more minerals and has the largest Diamonds in Sierra Leone, with a minute population fewer than five hundred thousand (500,000) assumption, i am using assumption because i do not know the number of descendants living abroad.
Kono is ethnically the most diverse District in Sierra Leone, with main towns like Koidu City, second City Yengema, Jaima Sewafe, Jaima Nimikoro, Masabendu and Junction (Condama), Sandor, Tombodu, Mambudu checkpoint, Motema, Njagbama Fearma, Seima, and kaikundu.
Kono District suffered the most during the War, in terms of destruction, killing and it was constantly in fighting because the Diamond rich reserved in Sierra Leone, the population was closed to one million (1,000,000), which include all tribes in Sierra Leone which makes Kono the most diverse District.
