The United Nations Mission in Sierra Leone may be preparing for the final pullout of its peacekeeping force by the end of the year, but it seems, the mission wants to leave behind a clean record, in so far as sexual exploitation and abuse is concerned. "The mission has embarked on massive sensitisation of the peacekeepers in the area of sexual abuse," says Ansumana Konneh, an official of the United Nations Mission in Sierra Leone's (UNAMSIL's) civil affairs department.
