It has been another sad and disheartening day for Sierra Leoneans residing in New South Wales Australia. On behalf of all Sierra Leoneans in NSW, the Sierra Leone Community Council NSW wishes to extend their sincere condolences to the Bah family.


The Council wishes to inform members and other Sierra Leoneans that we have lost a father, brother, a patriotic and an active community member by the name of Mohamed L’maz Bah.


Mohamed commonly known as ‘Amaz’ was born on the 27th January 1963 in Sierra Leone and migrated to Australia in 1989 for work related matters.  Upon arrival, he worked for the NRMA as a sales representative for few years before switching companies. Later, he moved to AMP Insurance and also worked in a similar field as a sales representative establishing himself as one of the best sales person within the insurance industry. He acquired numerous prizes for his outstanding work at the various insurance companies he was employed. His last place of work was with the Combine Insurance company were he attained the position of regional manager. Mr. Bah served his company in New Zealand and later returned to Australia early this year and resided at Parramatta NSW.


Outside his work life, he dedicated his time to community work. He worked tirelessly in ensuring that the African community in Sydney was united. He served as the president for both the Sierra Leone Association and the African Community Australia.  As an active member within the Sierra Leone community, he contributed on several occasions either financially or morally in community events.


L’amahz is survived by three children – two girls and a boy.  Again, the Sierra Leone Community wishes to convey their deepest sympathies.


For Funeral arrangement, Sierra Leoneans in Sydney are advised to visit Mr. and Mrs. Kallay’s house at 15 Snowgum Street Acacia Gardens. They can be contacted on telephone number is (02) 96263494.


All Australians, New Zealanders, Sierra Leoneans as well as other nationalities, friends, co-worker and acquaintances who knew ‘Amaz’, Mr. Mohamed L’maz Bah will dearly miss him.

    We are deeply sorry to loose our Best friend. He was the true leader. Very hard to find right words to describe our grief and sorrow.
    Our sincere condolences to L’maz family.

    Once we have reached heaven, we will no longer be troubled or inhibited by physical or bodily limitations. The crippled, diseased, wasted bodies will be strong and beautiful and vigorous.
    The Scripture says there is a time to be born and a time to die. And when my time to die comes, an angel will be there to comfort L’MAZ . He will give L’MAZ peace and joy even at the most critical hour, and usher him into the presence of God, and L’MAZ will dwell with the Lord forever.

    Psalm 91:11 The Holy Bible, King James Version – For He shall give His angels charge over thee to, keep thee in all thy ways.

    We will miss you Brother have a safe Trip HOME.

    Amaz was a very strong moral supporter of the Sierra Leone Radio Sydney (SLRS). He always told me that one of the best assets of Sierra Leoneans and Africans in general was the Sierra Leone Radio. Each time he stayed out of the country and came back, he would ask how the radio was going. Therefore, on behalf of the entire crew of the Sierra Leone Radio Sydney (SLRS), I convey our deepest condolences to the family and relatives of Amaz and, indeed, to the entire Sierra Leone and other African communities in Sydney and beyond. Life on earth is fleeting but good works always remain. PEACE!
