Sierra Leone President Ernest Bai Koroma won re-election in November 17 polls with 58.7 percent of the vote, ahead of his top rival Julius Maada Bio on 37.4 percent, the West African state's electoral body announced on Friday.

Koroma has overseen an investment boom in the country's resources sector that could make it one of the world's fastest growing economies this year.
