Sierra Leone: Voters head to polls to elect new president

Voters in Sierra Leone head to the polls later on Wednesday to choose a new president.

The leaders of 16 political parties are vying to succeed current leader Ernest Bai Koroma.

But many voters doubt the candidates are up to the job of reviving the country’s ailing economy.
