Sengbe,

This was one of the reasons why THEMNES expelled your TRIBALISTIC leader Albert Margai and his S.L.P.P. party from power during the March 1967 elections.
Twice your Mende brother's tried to IMPEDE US, Brigadier David Lansana and Lt. Sam Hingha Norman by orchestrating the first coup d'etait in Sierra Leone; then Majors Blake and Jumu for the counter coup against the former when they installed the N.R.C. led by Juxon Smith.
Not to be denied, a Sergeants' Revolt led by a THEMNE Warrant Officer Class I Regimental Sergeant Major Alex Foday Conteh ENCOMPASSING Corporal Foday Saybana Sankoh overthrew the N.R.C.
But the saddest climax of this episode was that MY PEOPLE (THEMNE) were too IDIOTIC and NAIVE to bequeath power to Stevens who BUTCHERED our LEADERS every four years (Brigadier John Amadu Bangura,[Majors Farrah Jawara and S.E. Momoh, and Lieutenant Kolugbonda who were not THEMNES but their ETHOS WERE] in 1971; Dr. Mohammed Sorie Forna, Ibrahim Taqi, Lieutenant Habib Lansana Kamara, Abu Kanu and Bai MKari N'Silk in 1975 and Sam Bangura the Governor of the Bank of Sierra Leone in 1979.
IM SUCK MOO EE?
OR WAH!

After posting this, I will phone Mats Utas.

I asked one of the most murderous critics of the APC, one Sengbe Konouwah to comment, but he has – perhaps wisely abstained – or been restrained by some of his SLPP cohorts who know that moderation is the better part of discretion as Dr. Sengbe is known to be rather brash, known to employ unfair ( foul) means, not nuanced, extreme, pedantic, strident, hysterical, with a predilection for rather coarse language , lewd, super-hyperbolic and often excessive in exaggerating to the point of lying, and quite uncivilised when it comes to attacking the APC. He would perhaps boast that he holds no punches and neither does the more balanced Dr. Fanusie who does not hesitate to diagnose diarrhoea of the mouth (or the backside) once old Konouwah gets going……

“ …...there is a growing nostalgia for the APC years (1968–92) in power.” (Mats Utas)

Where did this Swede get that?

My “New Oxford Dictionary of English” Second edition, 2003, defines “Nostalgia” as
“A sentimental longing or wistful affection for a period in the past”.

The glorious days of the sometimes mythical past is the closest some can get to the Garden of Eden – or to Ithaca in the realms of the imagination. Nostalgia is an emotion that exiles for example experience and it’s an emotion that dominates much of their poetry written in exile - Aimé Césaire with his Cahier d'un retour au pays natal (Notebook of a Return to My Native Land, Léopold Sédar Senghor, out of Africa, refugees who have fled persecution or a war zone, the Galut and the most poignant determination sustained in Diasporas through millennia: the longing back to Zion.

Ah Nostalgia - the grass is always greener in the home turf – and in contemporary consciousness it can well be a mythical past - or one that has never been experienced - for example most of the younger Iranians were born after Imam Khomeini (r.a.) entered the hereafter and so too, many of those alive today in a Sierra Leone in which the average lifespan for men is 37 years and for women, is 39 years, may have heard of what by comparison with the glorious days of Sir Milton Margai ( 1961-1964) were the most terrible later days of the One –Party State with president, Judiciary and military fused into one APC presidential power government of the day which dripped blood with them/him hanging their own minister of information, minister of finance, hanging their army chief , many other hangings and other unspeakable violations of peoples Human Rights all committed in broad daylight.

There is a growing nostalgia for that?

Dr. Yaya Fanusie is one of the strongest advocates of the “New APC”. Obviously, there would be no need for any talk of a “NEW APC” if there was a growing nostalgia for the bad old days of the old APC. Dr. Fanusie who is in his sixties and as an old rearguard of the old APC has a perspective on the history of the APC, informs us about his stand against the Old APC with these words that he wrote on 31 July 2007:

“A few young Sierra Leonean men at the event were very hostile to me. But I am old and they said we oldies were responsible for all their suffering. One was getting very belligerent lucky for him he did not put his hand on me. He later told me he was the grandson of Thaimu Bangura. I informed the young man that I started opposing the Siaka Stevens APC REGIME IN 1970. Suddenly, HE CALMED DOWN. He then offered to buy me a drink; which I declined then he said he would like for me to record with him my views and he would put it to music.”

Here is a summary of the journey that we have all been through the past eleven years:

You start to understand Professor Sia Tiyaama's mental state when you read this.


http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/law/08/01/millionaire.shot.ap/index.html

CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts (AP) -- What the former MIT professor and wealthy businessman told police sounded like a scene from a bad spy novel: He was shot by two masked men with Russian accents, and saved only because two of the bullets bounced off his belt buckle.

Five months later came the indictment -- against him.
Prosecutors say John J. Donovan Sr. staged his own shooting to gain an advantage in a legal battle with his own children for control of trusts that he claims are worth at least $180 million. He's accused of trying to get back at his oldest son by falsely accusing him of hiring his would-be killers.
The accusations and the civil case -- and even a daughter's molestation allegation -- are overshadowing the career of a man once dubbed "the Johnny Carson of the training circuit."
Donovan, 65, a business professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1969 to 1997, made a name for himself as a technology guru. He commanded big fees as a sought-after speaker to Fortune 500 companies, started more than a dozen companies and published 11 books.
Donovan is charged with filing a false police report, a misdemeanor that carries a maximum one-year sentence. His trial is scheduled to begin Friday in Middlesex Superior Court.
"John Donovan repeatedly provided false information to police about a crime that did not occur in order to 'frame' his son for a crime his son did not commit and had no part in," prosecutors claim in court documents.
Donovan adamantly denies any role in his shooting and insists he was attacked by two strangers who approached him as he got into his car in the parking lot of his business, Cambridge Executive Enterprises, on the night of December 16, 2005.
During the 911 call Donovan made from his cell phone after the shooting, he told a state police dispatcher that his son James, now 40, "laundered $180 million" and had threatened to kill him.
Prosecutors say Donovan made up the story to exact revenge, but his lawyer Barry Klickstein calls Donovan "the innocent victim of a violent crime."
"Professor Donovan does not know who shot him. He certainly didn't shoot himself, and he didn't have himself shot," Klickstein said.
Prosecutors say their evidence includes a surveillance tape showing Donovan, before the shooting, reaching up and moving a security camera that had been trained on the parking lot. The tape allegedly shows Donovan moving the camera so that it captured the ceiling and wall, but not the parking lot where he later said the shooting took place.
In the pocket of a sports jacket worn by Donovan the night of the shooting, investigators said they found a cryptic "to-do list" written by Donovan on the menu of the Algonquin Club, an elite business club in Boston. The notations included words such as "gloves," "tool," "rifle," and "shells," according to court documents.
Prosecutors cite contradictions between Donovan's story to police and the injuries he received.

Teen says he 'just freaked out' and shot principal
Donovan told police he had been shot twice in a large belt buckle he was wearing. But the emergency room doctor who treated him said he did not see the type of injuries he would expect if the belt were on when the shots were fired.
Donovan received a gunshot wound to his left abdomen. In hospital medical records, it was noted that Donovan "survived relatively unscathed," according to court documents filed by prosecutors.
Klickstein would not discuss the surveillance tape or any other evidence before the trial, but said, "The physical evidence that the district attorney relies on will not support the charges."
In addition to his various businesses and teaching job at MIT, Donovan was a clinical professor of pediatrics at Tufts University for 10 years, where he did research using computer and statistical analysis to track birth defects.
Throughout his long, multi-faceted career, Donovan has made a lot of enemies. In 2005, he was involved in more than a dozen lawsuits with former business associates and relatives, including a bitter fight with his five children over trust assets.
Donovan's children were beneficiaries of just one trust that is worth far less than the amount claimed by their father, according to a spokeswoman for four of the five children. The two sides have a mediated settlement, but the case ended up back in court after a judge found that the elder Donovan did not comply with the terms of the agreement, according to court documents.
In 2002, one of Donovan's daughters told her siblings that Donovan had sexually abused her when she was a child. Donovan vehemently denies the allegation, and said through his attorneys that his children are using it to gain leverage in the dispute.
People who know Donovan say he is a complex man who inspires both fierce loyalty and animosity.
"He is a person who has more ideas per second than anybody else in the world, but not all the ideas are good necessarily," said Stuart Madnick, an MIT professor who started a computer training business with Donovan in the 1970s. Madnick later sued, saying Donovan failed to pay the $1.4 million he owed him for buying his share of the business. They ultimately settled the case.
"On one hand, he has fantastic charisma, and on the other hand, he does things that can infuriate people," Madnick said. E-mail to a friend

Even in the midst of war (1996) and 2002 when communications and other facilities were poor it didn't take a week for election results to be announced. Why would it take that long this time around when almost every village in the country has access to mobile phone facility.

Fake University Degrees & Blood Diamonds

THE REAL SAM-SUMANA WILL YOU PLEASE STAND UP?

The US-Based Professor Sia Tiyaama of the ruling SLPP Sends Hard Questions to the Running Mate of the Opposition APC.

Sierra Leone has been reminded ad nauseum about the importance of this election given the recent violent history of the country. This article will add to the nauseatingly repetitive reminder of the importance of this election. The difference with this reminder is that it will focus largely on the running mates of the SLPP and APC presidential candidates, Momodu Koroma (alias MK) and Samuel Sam-Sumana. It is important that we focus our search light on these two individuals for the simple fact that they would be a heartbeat away from the presidency. The following questions are in order for Sierra Leoneans when they cast their votes: who would you prefer to entrust the administration and management of the country to Momodu Koroma or Samuel Sam-Sumana; does Samuel Sam-Sumana have the requisite experience to run the country? How did Samuel Sam-Sumana end up as Ernest Koroma’s running mate? Is Samuel Sam-Sumana actually the person he claims to be? Momodu Koroma’s profile is out there for all to see and people can crosscheck the facts. Momodu Koroma is a proven administrator as head of Math and Physics department at Njala University, Minister of Presidential Affairs, and most important Foreign Minister. As foreign minister, Mr Momodu Koroma together with the finance ministry successfully negotiated debt forgiveness and other goodies Sierra Leoneans are now enjoying. Nevertheless, who in the world is Samuel Sam-Sumana?

DOES SAMUEL SAM-SUMANA HAVE THE UNIVERSITY DEGREE HE CLAIMS?

Preliminary investigations have revealed that Samuel L. Sam-Sumana may have to clear the air about his alleged graduation with a degree from Metropolitan State University. As a result, I am throwing this public question for Samuel Sam-Sumana-can you prove that you actually graduated or even attended the said university. If so, which year did you graduate Mr. Sam-Sumana? Can you provide original transcr1pts to show that you matriculated and/or graduated from said University? If indeed Mr. Sam-Sumana never even attended the university, why did he have to lie? If he lied, what else is he hiding from Sierra Leoneans? Other pertinent questions that Mr. Sam-Sumana may want to answer include, why he left Maryland so unceremoniously and in a hurry. Do you have a criminal record in the United States? Is it also true Mr. Sam-Sumana that you are not the Muslim you claimed to be and that Mr. Ernest Koroma is fully aware of that? Did you just adopt the religion to fool Muslims in Sierra Leone? Is it not true Mr. Sam-Sumana that you are a baptized Christian and remained so until you allegedly paid for the running mate position? Would you agree that it would be unconscionable to lie about your religion just for a position? Is it also true Mr. Sam-Sumana that you were involved in some shady diamond deals with a company in Minnesota called Lionsgate Diamond Jewelers? Did you sell uncut diamonds from Sierra Leone to this company at the time when diamond exports from Sierra Leone were banned? Are you aware of the fact that this very company has a bad record with the Better Business Bureau in the USA? Are you aware that such bad record means people should avoid doing business with such a company? If indeed you sold some uncut diamonds to this group, were they blood diamonds given the years you did business with the company? Further, Mr. Sumana, is it true that Lionsgate Jewelers or a company affiliated with them bankrolled you when you allegedly bribed Ernest Koroma and the APC Central Committee with the sum of $250,000 for the running mate position? Can you throw light on the allegation that this company bankrolled you with the understanding that they have sole rights to the Sandor Forests, both in timber and diamonds? I want Mr. Sam-Sumana to know that as a Sierra Leonean I have every right to ask these questions. It is your duty and obligation to answer them so that the people of Sierra Leone would know who you really are. Failure to address these questions may cast you in a worse light than you already are.

COMPARE WITH MOMODU KOROMA

Sierra Leoneans must look at the running mates carefully and discern the future of the country. Mr. Sam-Sumana with so many questions and alleged shady activities coming this close to the presidency makes me shudder. Now compare that with Momodu Koroma who does not only have a wealth of experience, he his intelligent enough to take the mantle of the presidency should the need arise. No one in his or her right mind would wish such bad omen on Sierra Leone when it comes to Sam-Sumana. Momodu Koroma comes across as a man with accurate vision, unblemished understanding of the issues, unsurpassed magnanimity when dealing with opposition and superb understanding of the concept of unity in diversity due to his upbringing. What more can Sierra Leoneans ask for in a running mate? Sierra Leone must take into consideration the complexity of post-war reconstruction when casting their votes. Would you entrust the reconstruction in the hands of the APC team led by someone whose experience is in selling insurance policies with a runner up who needs to answer tons of questions about blood diamonds? Would you as a Sierra Leonean prefer to elect someone who treats Sierra Leone as an insurance policy sales event? Recently Ernest Koroma and his shady running mate said they would run the country like a business. In fact, Ernest Koroma has already started doing business with the future of Sierra Leone. In the first instance, the APC symbols were allegedly sold to the highest bidders and the running mate position was given to someone Ernest Koroma hardly knows because the person allegedly doled out $250,000. Sierra Leoneans must tell Ernest Koroma to take his business and his running mate elsewhere. Governance is not business profit making. Governance is about social welfare and the creation of a conducive atmosphere for economic activity. In short, Momodu Koroma is a better individual when it comes to the future of Sierra Leone than Ernest Koroma and his shady running mate put together. Add VP Solomon Berewa, the Berewa/MK ticket would be in overkill mode as there would be no basis for comparison. As the Krio would say na die en sleep. Therefore, Sierra Leone, there you have it; these are the real choices in the forthcoming elections. What you do on 11 August goes a long way in determining whether you would continue enjoying the freedoms you have now. Say no to an APC party that has a shady running mate with all those questions hanging over his him. Say no to an APC party that thrives in violence.

These are mere questions, not facts. Why did the writer not contact the said university and find out for himself? Even a baby knows it's qiute easy to do that in america.

Secondly why did the writer not call the alleged diamond company and talk to them? Again that's very easy to do.

My conclusion: This is typical SLPP nonsense. Kindergarten.

I have done exactly that to find out whether Sam Sumana graduated from the said university. The facts are that he matriculated into the university (registered and began taking classes). He never graduated from the university. So for him to claim that he holds a degree from the university is incorrect. To do this yourself, you simply get hold of Sam Sumana's SS number and last address (which is easy when you pay $39.99 to get his last address, then pull up his credit report, and then use his SS# on his credit report to make the call to the university, posing as an employer).

Mr. Kamara,

If this so called Sia is a professor, then I must say he lacks substance and wonder what 'she' is teaching.

This empty professor stated by making mother-of-all-allegations without an iota of evidence and then went on to talk complete rubbish about Ernest being an insurance person and Momodu being an super intelligent person.

My conclusion is this: ignore 'her' rubbish and discuss issues of substance.

Mr. Spoker why is it only now that you are revealing all this? How many Sierra Leonean secretes have you been hiding that we need to know about before Election Day? If you were interested in Sierra Leone and not selfish interest why have you been silent about it all this time by not informing Sierra Leone and the U.S. government so that actions would have been taken to retrieve money from him or them? Monies which could have been returned to feed the dieing people or give medicine to our hospitals? Now that your interest is threatened, you are making-up stories because you think we Sierra Leoneans will feed on that old politics right? Wrong! Come again.
How can we trust you when in fact, you had valuable information all these years but could not speak-out until when your interest is at stake: election time? That shows more of your selfishness than anything. You are the type of politicians we must be concerned with and about because you do not work in the interest of the country but yourself. Do we need to wait to know criminals who run our country dry until election time before they are stopped? I am sorry but that is what I deduce from whatever you are trying to sell. Let us have a civil politics. This style is old and out of style in the civilized world.

Forumites, let me remind everyone that the elections will take place ten days from today. Please go out there and cast your vote for whatever party you support. Those of you who are not registered or out of the country, please encourage your folks to exercise their constitutional right and VOTE.

Disregard all disparaging nonesense posted on this website by the tribalistic sycophant, Maada Sia Tiyaama. People like him are good for nothing. Preaching tribalism, hate, and blind support for a candidate for one and only one reason, being a member of one's tribe is a disaster we must all avoid. Sia Tiyaama is a hopeless tribalist who is banking on the hope that when Berewa wins he will exploit his tribal connections to get a job with the administration and of course join in the on going corruption to enrich himself. To whom much is given, much is expected....Sia enjoyed an APC government scholarship whilst in college and after attaining his present educational level, he is expected to provide honest services to the nation. However, he hopelessly and lazily sit on his laurels waiting to be called for an underserving SLPP job. This is the reason why he is relentlessly going after the only formidable opposition to his mende clan inorder to brainwash people are misfocus their attention. Do not listen to him. All his stories are full of lies and fabrications and none of his written nonesense can be corroborated. Ignore him and VOTE for the candidate of your choice. Infact, use his nasty tactics to evaluate his party and hence VOTE against the SLPP.

Well meaning Sierra Leoneans must campaign for the party of choice and desist from bashing opponents. The only reason Sia writes negative articles against the APC ticket holders is because there is no positive record from this disfunctional outgoing administration to write about. I challenge Sia to catalog the reasons why people must VOTE for the SLPP for once instead write about why people must not vote for the APC. The future of Sierra Leone will continue to be bleak if the likes of Maada Sia are ever brought close to the corridors of State House.

VOTE some one else and dump Berewa and bury the hopes of Sia Tiyaama, the broke, learned brother whose only hopes for personal financial stability depends on the SLPP election victory.

If what Sia Tiyaama writes is incorrect, why don't the APC and PMDC bigwigs give us the correct version? In her latest piece, Sia Tiyaama asks, for instance, whether there is any record of Sam Sumana graduating from the University as claimed. A copy of his transcr1pt should be enough to prove Sia Tiyaama wrong. But as always, the APC is being deceptive about this and is just crying wolf. Sia Tiyaama also asks whether a company that is involved in alluvial diamond mining and using Sam Sumana to exploit his own people gave him the money which he used to bribe his way to the running mate position ahead of such APC Kono bigwigs like Mr. Yambasu who not only has a wealth of experience within our party (the APC) and who is well known in Kono, but who has also sacrificed to lead our party during the worst of times. Well, typical of the new Mafia at the top, there has been no comment.

I am frustrated with our party. We will lose the election because we are still practising the same old politics of deception and bribery.

IF I AM PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SIERRA LEONE
By Patrick S. Bockari, Mendekeima, Kailahun; Sacramento, California, USA.
8484 Florin Road, Suite 140, Sacramento, CA 95828
(916) 289-7662
Many people look at things the way they are and wonder, why? I dream of things that never were, and wonder, why not? [John F. Kennedy] I read this quote on the Salone Discussion Forum, and I love it! ♦The hallmark of a great national leader is to inspire and challenge your people by your dreams and visions, and to lead them to achieve greatness and glory in pursuit thereof. No Sierra Leone leader has ever hit this hallmark, but I will! [Predicted 2012 Sierra Leone Presidential Campaign speech.]

PREAMBLE:

As president of Sierra Leone:
My first action (within one week of taking office): I will invite and meet in an extraordinary closed door meeting with all executives of companies involved in Sierra Leone’s strategic natural resources (Rutile, Bauxite, Diamonds, gold, fishing, timber, harbor, hydroelectricity, air carriers, and construction). I will also meet with all major trading partners. The purpose will be to inform them of the seriousness of my administration to see a boldly developed Sierra Leone from revenue generated from the country’s natural resources. I will assure them of our hope to continue trading with them, but that NOTHING is off the table, including the option to terminate any agreement that is unfair and exploitative to our country. I will inform them that if I terminate an agreement, it will be done lawfully and that there will be a credible audit of all agreements to ensure that Sierra Leone is getting the maximum possible benefit from its natural wealth. I will ask for urgent voluntary sponsorship from each company executive to provide the cost of transportation (round trip airfare), lodging, and meals for about 100 of the best brains of Sierra Leoneans living overseas to attend a week long economic summit.
My second action (within 30 days of taking office): I will call an extraordinary emergency economic summit to be held in the last week of the second month (within 60 days of taking office). The summit will bring together about 100 of the smartest and most passionate citizens of Sierra Leone living abroad into a one week emergency economic summit with about an equal number of same calibers of citizens from within Sierra Leone. The summit will be hosted in a remote part of the country, far from Freetown and away from any city distractions. The purpose of the economic summit will be to allow a broad representation of Sierra Leoneans to provide input into, and critical review my “Sierra Leone Development Plan.” My administration will be responsible for all travel expenses of the selected participants (transportation, lodging, food, and limited incidental expenses). Participants will be mostly selected by their peers within designated regional blocks. Prior to attending, I will submit a detailed economic development plan that will show a $15 TO $20 billion spending in 10 years, and revenue of over $25 billion in the same period.
My third action will be to appoint the most dynamic cabinet ever (90 days) Yes, No cabinet ministers for 90 days, but there be contract administrators!: The process of selecting a will be by application, and open hearings will be conducted. The applicants who can demonstrate abilities to produce results to implement the Sierra Leone Development Plan will be appointed. The selected applicant will sign a contract with the people of Sierra Leone through the representatives at the economic conference that adopted the final Sierra Leone Development Plan. The contracts will contain deliverables with critical timelines and milestones to be achieved. Missing any milestone will require a public hearing and possible removal of minister. Plans will be fully funded.
My fourth action will be an internationally credible audit of Sierra Leone’s past agreements that involved $250,000 or more: I will oversee these audits myself. The audits will be looking for violations of agreements, financial mismanagement, violations of international laws and practices. Example: I want to know why it has taken over 30 year to construct the Bunbuna hydroelectric project, and what led to the cost escalations. Why did the financing institutions continue to grant or extend the loans when progress was not see on the project. What actions were taken? Did any of the funding agencies or institutions violate their own rules at the detriment of our country? Did their actions violate the rights of the people of Sierra Leone? I DON’T GIVE A DAMN IF THEY HAVE WRITTEN OF THE STUPID DEBTS. My administration will hold someone responsible other than just past governments of Sierra Leone. I may seek compensation in international courts and hold some of the “big banks” criminally responsible for the suffering in our country. We may be able, for example to show that we have been grossly cheated through misrepresentations in natural resource pricing. In those instances, we will seek price adjustments with interests and penalties that could bring in substantial amounts of money.
My fifth action (in 180 days) will be to end ALL “free for all” gold and diamond mining as we know it! Yes, those two minerals will only be mined by NO MORE THAN 15 industrial mining companies AND a few industrial mining cooperatives of some of the most successful CITIZEN miners who can demonstrate certain record of past successes. My administration will help finance a few mining cooperatives to make them productive for a significant share in mineral proceeds. Under my administration, Sierra Leone’s minerals will belong to the people of Sierra Leone. Industrial mining companies will be considered investors – NOT Owners They will receive returns on their investments and be guaranteed their initial investment. Sierra Leone’s current mining laws and policies are too outdated. They were founded and crafted in colonial era, designed fundamentally to exploit the resource nations, and accord maximum and grossly unfair benefits to the colonial investing agents. Rather, my administration will use decision mechanics that apply capital investment risk management equations to quantify outcomes and validate laws and policies through one rigorous criterion that affords Sierra Leone the maximum financial benefit from its God given mineral wealth. Consider the 2006 ending diamond report from Sierra Leone’s GGDO (Govt. Gold & Diamond Office). Nearly $150 million of diamonds were exported. The government got 3% of that which equals a miserable four and one-half million dollars. The government further ignores that even the $150 million only represents the small portion that was not smuggled. The government relies on the senseless Kimberly Certification as the control mechanism over our diamonds. Give anyone a large or small piece of diamond without the so-called certificate of origin and see if they won’t find a buyer! If industrialized and modern mining risk financing economics is properly used, Sierra Leone can easily earn upwards of $600 million annually from diamonds alone. Add the gold and improve the gravity gold mining into ionic gold and you could be looking at serious revenue from gold and diamonds. I will do it if I am president of Sierra Leone!
THE LIST GOES ON --- Fishing; the harbor and a transshipment center; hydroelectricity, Ocean tidal currents between Freetown and Conakry that could be harnessed for about 30 megawatts of hydro electricity; mechanized agricultural involving modern irrigation and effective food processing; iron ore; bauxite (aluminum ore); I will not get into the issue of Rutile. Rutile is the single most valuable natural wealth Sierra Leone has. Credible trade statistics will show that Sierra Leone is being cheated close to $5 billion dollars on Rutile alone. I will change that and bring most of that money and more to finance the Sierra Leone Development Plan.
The Sierra Leone Development Plan.
I have developed a credible economic development plan that will show how Sierra Leone can generate over $25 billion ($25,000,000,000) in 10 years. It requires bold, radical, and strategic reforms in the trading of our natural resources. It does not depend on donor nations. It will leverage some of our resources to develop others. Every infrastructure will be developed to support population growth and economic expansion for the next 50 to 75 years. The key areas of infrastructure development will be modern highways; renewable energy production and its application to productive uses; integrated modern sewage and storm drain systems throughout Sierra Leone; mandatory community and city planning to require minimum public infrastructures like integrated sewage, water, storm drain, erosion control, trash collection and managed sanitary landfills; a $1.5 billion reconstruction of Freetown into a modern city as the gateway to the country’s vibrant and rapidly growing economy; installation of the most modern telecommunication system available today to form the backbone of a fraud proof computerized identification system that will uniquely identify every citizen and resident from birth to death, a digitized land database that will uniquely identify every land plot and impose mandatory retrofitting to orientate every home or building to face a public street in a city or town block planning system; government partnership with land owners to develop the most efficient irrigation system on earth that will combine gravity flow canals with renewable energy operated well pumping and dams to support sustainable agriculture (Note: NOT food security); micro hydroelectric projects on the various rivers to give local control to legislated regional power companies; mandatory free primary and secondary education for every citizen regardless of age; and more. A total projected spending of $20 billion in 10 years with most of the spending in the first seven years to create over two million well paying jobs….. and more! Yes, Sierra Leone has the natural wealth to do it. Sierra Leone is currently being cheated to the tune of billions of dollars annually on Rutile alone!
The general elections of 2007 appears to be a lost cause, but 2012 will bring change to our country. Change that will be visible for all to see. As a candidate in 2012, I will have the organizational capacity to campaign freely and compel free and fair elections. And, by the way, the votes will be counted. And if the people vote for me, before I leave office, I would have helped develop our country so much so that there will be no need for me or any of my associates to hold elections in the middle of the rainy season, or to to falsify the results, or be so quiet about issues affecting our people. (Laugh).

When you talk of development in Sierra Leone, tell me who really brought development ? SLPP ruled Sierra Leone for 7 years after Independence and 10 years after 1996 , but can anyone count any development made by SLPP ? If you see any big building in Freetown, it was constructed by APC, like Youyi Building, Bank of Sierra Leone, NIC, Law Courts , Bethoven Women's hostel at FBC and so on .Show me any by SLPP. APC built all the superhighways,like Bo-Kenema, Lunsar-Maeni, Freetown-Waterloo, Makeni-Kono. etc.SLPP did not add to these.If they did, please name them . SLPP received all the economic assistance that APC never received. NASSIT, DEBT RELIEF, IMF, WORLD BANK.Where is the development for all this ? Nothing, just backwardness and suck-air . SLPP used the money to buy mansions for concubines and for themselves, set up four-figure bank accounts abroad . The International Community knows that SLPP has squandered all the foreign aid it gave to us. If SLPP wins, they are not going to help us any more. If SLPP wins, it will be suffering for Sierra Leone. I hope every body votes for APC next week. APC stands for development.SLPP stands for bacwardness and suffering.

You stated that APC stands for development:- What are you smoking? Where you in a comma during APC's 24 year rampage??
You further stated that APC built all the "super" highways: - Now whatever you are smoking is messing up your brain!!!
You went on to say that SLPP squandered all the foreign aid money:- How dishonest can you be?

SLPP has brought the country back from the brink of collapse-- A collapse that the APC caused.
SLPP has introduced the notions of Freedom of expression and association, something that the APC never allowed.
SLPP has re-energized the chieftiency institution, something the APC completely destroyed
SLPP has built more scholls and hospitals in Sa Lone, and has pledged to fully support the girl child and all students
SLPP has rehabilitated roads and government building, most of which were destroyed during the war....A war caused by APC's policies, ineptitude, tribalism and nepotism, EKUTAYISM, KDDA-BIASEDNESS, CORRUPTION, THUGGERY,......
SLPP is upholding democratic values in Sa Lone, something that the APC never did.
SLPP has conducted 2 national and 1 local election peacefully and fairly, something the APC never did
SLPP has put in place procedures and policies that will generate massive economic growth for a long time
SLPP is showing other parties that violence is not the answer, something that APC thugs still don't understand...
I could go on and on.....

Vote Berewa
Vote SLPP
One Country, One People!

The late Yahyah Kanu,had the opportunity at hand to head the state,after the commotion by disgruntled junior officers in Freetown.He refused to match in.Maintaining his loyality to the state and to the late Momoh government,and above all not power thirst.As a consequence,he lost his life.Dr Karefa Smart was invited by the corrupt clan-slpp to head the party which was obvious would have been the future President of our beloved land,but turned the proposition down,instead went further to form his party.Reasons well known to him.But one can speculate.Dr Karefa love the country than the party or was not ready to head a party surrounded by corrupt,greedy and selfish elements who care less about the affairs of the state.Then the clan decided to call in the opportunist,who by law was banned from taking any public office because of criminal records.No need to elaborate.The clan (slpp) by then needed any sub-bordinate to head the party,the person can even be a serial killer as long as he or she was ready to serve the clan and not the country.The Themnes among a few tribes in Sierra-Leone are not power thirst though they have had and still have the opportunities.They put the country,peace and stability ahead of power taking,unlike other tribes who are ready to slaughter even their own sons and daughters and put the entire country in shambolic state just to hang on power for the sake of power.The late Thaimu Bangura may his soul rest in peace,a true Hero,could have given Dr Karefa his votes in the second round 1996 elections but decided to promote peace and harmony,then decided to try the failed kabbah.Why Maada bio,did not threaten to overthrow the slpp clan?because they have failed the nation in all aspects,instead his rhetoric was directed to the Apc,although he has restrained it during a previous interview.

Very wrong!

Dr. John Karefa-Smart was indeed invited to the SLPP after his return from the US pending the 1996 elections, as a matter of courtesy. He told the SLPP that he was only willing to RE-JOIN the party (Remember he left the SLPP and joined hands with Siaka Stevens after losing leadership struggle to Sir Albert Margai) on the condition that he was made leader. It was too much for everybody at that time (they were still at the brainstorming stage, and not leadership selection stage), so they let him go. He went and found refuge with the UNPP. When I asked him personally about the issue, he told me several factors were in play and he couldn't enumerate.
It is nice to present history appropriately.

If my memory of the history of Sa Lon during the apc heydays serves me correctly, then I would state in no uncertain terms that under the dictatorship of Pa Shaki, the Lebanese, under the "chieftaincy" of one Jamil Sahid Mohamed, had full, and exclusive CONTROL over the diamond fields of Sa Lon. As you all very well know, diamonds are one of the most precious and profitable commodities we are endowed with as far as the natural resources we are endowed with in that country, and whosoever it is that "controlleth" it plays the tune.

And so it was under the apc leadership of Pa Shaki for seventeen years. Jamil and his cohorts controlled DIMINCO, after SLST had been made to collapse and depart the country through "nationalization" in the newly formed Republic of Sa Lon.

Pa Shaki ran the country like a business, allowing Jamil Sahid Mohamed to serve as his business partner, and chief operating officer. Jamil, my brothers and sisters, was the MAAAANNNNN in Sa Lon during that period, until Brig. Joseph Momoh was selected by the Pa (Shaki, that is) to succeed him in his bid to be protected from any commisions of inquiries, and / or any harm during his old age in his retirement.

Now, I told you all in a posting about a year ago or less, about how Jamil and Pa Momoh fell out. Essentially, Jamil felt that he had the same power as he had had under Pa Shaki. Pa Momoh, on the other hand, believed in Ekutay power. So he and Jamil fell out, and Jamil was coerced into leaving the country for his fatherland in Lebanon, where he was made a citizen by the Lebanese government under the auspices of one Nabi Berri, who was actually given birth to in Sa Lon. [I forget where in Sa Lon]. At any rate, Jamil was an afro-Lebanese of immense wealth, through his countrol of this natural resource the good Lord (and Geology) endowed our nation with. In cooperation with operatives in the Middle East, notably in Syria and Lebanon, they used this immense wealth, derived from our country, to finance the activities of their surrogates in the proxy wars fought against ISRAEL, and other "terrorist activities" in the region and globally.

Folks, the same thing is about to happen again should the APC win these forthcoming elections, if we allow them to do so. Y'all know that the history of a nation repeats itself in its entirety if the citizens sit silently down and do nothing from allowing the travesties imposed on them in the past to become repetitive. In other words, why would "y'alls" sit around and do nothing about the ills and evil acts that debased you as SaLonian citizens during that time period to repeat itself, when you now have the power and the wherewithal to prevent it from ever happening again? Why would you do so, my countrymen/women?

I ask you these questions for answers, and for you all to take preemptive action from allowing this misrule for personal aggandizement by the top members of the apc to repeat itself. For I see a pattern, and that pattern is quite disburbing, as it is bound to take us back into the BAD OLD DAYS of APC MISRULE. The pattern is as follows:

The apc is led by one Ernest Bai Koroma, a protege of Jamil Sahid Mohamed, attested to by the fact that the conspiracy theory that abounds in the clandestine, and crude takeover of the Jamil-family-owned RITICORP Insurance Company, once headed by, you guessed it, one Ernest Bai Koroma, until very recently - in 2002? 2006? Furthermore, it is on public record that the apc flagbearer has stated under no uncertain terms that if he is elected as President of Sa Lon, he would EMULATE the leadership STYLE and SKILLS of both Pa Shaki and Pa Momoh. Now we ALL AGREE and KNOW that these two presos were NO GOOD for Sa Lon and SaLonblia, so why would you entrust leadership to someone in their MOLD again for him to misrule you and your country by giving an inordinate amount of POWER to a group, or groups of folks who are foreigners, or foreign-born, and who are there only to CONTROL the ECONOMY of the nation in collusion with immoral characters in our polity?

These selfish sell-outs who once became filthy-rich under these tactics of the apc are lurking in the back rooms again trying their darnedest to regain their lost glory in the past. Are you gonna stand for this again, my peeps? Heck no!! I heard y'all say that, did you not?

Additionally, here comes the running-mate of the apc flagbearer, one Sam Sumana. I read somewhere today that this man lied about his schooling, his religion, and that he dealt in BLOOD DIAMONDS with a company that afforded him the ability to bribe the apc high command the sum of a quarter of a million dollars so that he would be selected as the running-mate of Ernest, the apc flagbearer. The money in turn was a bribe to him, and the apc for control over the Sandor forests in Kono District, I suppose. That is where he hails from. And if you know something about Sa Lon, you would know that this is a diamondiferous region, and there are 300-year-old mahogany trees located in this forest for timber. Can you imagine that if you cast your votes for the apc that they are gonna run our country as a business, NOT as in a mode wherein the social welfare of the citizens is gonna be taken care of, nor their ability to create wealth and sustainable living for themselves, but for foreigners who have the big mullah to offer them, and in turn, they, the foreigners would make very sizeable profits on the bribes to the APCerians as their investment in the latter "winning" the elections, thereby giving them the power to govern again in their diabolical manner.

Do you all see the pattern?

The least stated about their general secretary, the better, because in their diabolical scheme of things to come, "bad bush nor day for troway bad fambul". But let me re-state what Preso Kabba said about cousin Victor.

In his TRC statement, Pa Kabba unearthed a plan by cousin Victor, and his afrc/apc buddies to "borrow" one billion dollars from some source, or sources, using the natural resources of the nation as surety bond in repayment. A billion dollars, he said, if not more. Now where would most of that money go? You guessed it; into their pockets.

Do you all now see the pattern?

DON'T VOTE APC!!! They are NO GOOD for mother Sa Lon. They are a bunch of political MISCREANTS.

Please believe me!!!

VOTE SLPP ONLY!!! If Bra Solo B misbehaves in his ascendancy to power, I personally assure y'alls that I would come home to whup his black arse. Tell him Sengbe said so.

Love you all a lot.

It is I, Sengbe. Your I and I.

Hello again! decent folks on this forum. It is I, Sengbe, bringing you the sixth part of my musings:

1. If they can incite / instigate VIOLENCE, gross ROWDINESS, gross RUDENESS, and general LAWLESSNESS in their followers who wear RED, at their rallies, and in their desire to INTIMIDATE the followers of other political parties at election time, why can't they incite / instigate the POSITIVE attributes in CONSTRUCTIVE ENGAGEMENT in the society at all times during their existence? Positive attributes such as CLEANING the capital city of ROKIAMP, which they control politically, in order to rid the city of the gross filth in which they live unnecessarily; of the very large population of mosquitoes that infect them with diseases unnecessarily, to which they are probably immuned; investing in some educational programs for the MAINLY ILLITERATE thugs that support them; why can't they teach these thugs about what democracy is all about? Because that is NOT the akarta way.

2. So! you mean to tell us that Nyuma should not register to stay at an inn in Bo just because Koroma, the akarta leader, is supposed to register there at a later time? Who the bleep is Koroma? A charismatic nonentity with hardly any power over the general population, as is the case with Alhaji Pa Kabba, the president of Sa Lon? Who the bleep is he? Does this rationale not point in the direction of absolute DICTATORSHIP should the voters / people of Sa Lon be foolish enough to elect him? Astafullai sef!!!

3. Why did Idrissa Kamara, wearing his STINKING leather boots, and the other MAGGOTS, really MUG Lt. Col.(Rtd) Tom Nyuma at that inn in Bo the other day? To STEAL his money, laptop, and other personal belongings during that MUGGING. We all now know that the statement about an assasination attempt on Koroma was just a PLOY and a LIE to cast away the real intent of THEFT from public view. Assasinate Ernest Koroma??? For what? The boy is already a LOSER, so why should the atmosphere be created for public outrage, and sympathy by the supporters of the front-runner, SOLO B, when under the present circumstances the "leader" of the akartas is gonna lose bigtime on the 11th instant anyway?

4. Can "stinking leather boots" even read and write coherently? Hell NO! Can he even use a laptop computer effectively? Hell NO!! Well, why did he steal the man's laptop? So that he could sell it to earn some money at a pittance since his boss is nowhere capable of paying him and the other MAGGOTS for their "security" duties. Where is SMELLY LEATHER BOOTS at now in BO KOTAYA? In jail, where he will rot and die in about five years or less. Aren't the akartas trying to stage a demnstration in order to seek his release? They may try, but the loyal SLP, is going to uphold the law on behalf of the peoples of Sa Lon, and attempted MURDER is a felony, or capital offence under the SLPP. Upholding the rule of LAW is the modus operandi of the SLPP, as opposed to the folks in the akarta peoples congress. Bloody MAGGOTS, I would state.

4. Why are the AKARTAS such big fat LIARS? Because that is the only way they know how to survive in the polity of Sa Lon. How about through the perpetration of VIOLENT TACTICS? Well, the whole world knows that that is their prima facie modus operandi. Are we going to stand for that operating mode? Most likely not. The BROTHERS will see to that, if the SL Police, and/or the RSLAF are NOT up to the task.

5. What business does a Sa Lonian by birth, who has naturalized into a first world country, having vast commercial interests in his adopted country, bankrolls the akarta peoples congress, have to do with salaries paid to soldiers in his motherland, if he is NOT SUCKING-UP to these soldiers in reality? Oose wan na ihm yone pan hog money? Ee daddy norto butcher. U daddy na butcher, fodmans? Lef for suck up to the saro soja boys ehn gals. Dis na the new army, norto the akarta, or your afrc/ruf "peoples" army of the past. Dis army yah so professional enough. Na IMATT say so, norto Sengbe say so. So u go lef with brown-nose for nartin normor, backsye boy.

Let me stop so far for now.

Adieu!! mes peuples.

Was that Sengbe 1 musing?
You are certainly full of spleen.

About Tom Nyuma, as it turns out, let’s say that he was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
If you had checked into that hotel – with revolver in hand (with your laptop in your baggage, and sweet baby Sue in your hotel bed, I wonder what would have been your fate Lord Sengbe.
You’d probably be changing the bandage wrapped around your professorial forehead right now.
Your students and other fans would probably be sending you flowers and get well cards. I think that that would have been an extra feather in your cap and after that you could forever call upon others to take note that you too had suffered some grievous bodily damage and temporary loss of dignity ( when the APC bodyguards had been kicking you and stomping on your intellectual forehead , and ah, such pain, suffered on behalf of your SLPP – could come in handy when you are vying for party leadership in 2012.......and don’t forget that you would also have to admit, that but for the timely intervention of Hon. Ernest Bai Koroma, your life would have been translated into meeting your SLPP ancestors, Sir Milton, Sir Albert, Kandeh Bureh and others in the Elysian fields.....

So in the end you’d have to admit that Ernest Bai Koroma did an honourable thing acted according to PIKAUCH NEFESH and saved your life – as indeed he saved Tom’s life as a result of which instead of reading this: ( Check it out!) :

http://www.google.se/search?hl=en&rlz=1T4GZHY_enSE232SE232&q=Nyuma+blesses+Koroma

We would instead read, “Sengbe with white bandage wrapped around his head, blesses Ernest Bai Koroma from his hospital bed “

One thing worries me and it’s this that you wrote:

“ The BROTHERS will see to that, if the SL Police, and/or the RSLAF are NOT up to the task” - It’s the kind of confrontation as between ex RUF and ex-Kamajoria that could spiral out of control – although the Kamajors are known to keep well within the borders of their ethnic strongholds.

By the way, whilst still musing about what you call akartas, did you see this Noble man?

No friend of Akartas of any political persuasion, stripe, tribe or clan:

But Bra Cornie would you go to assasinate someone with your "sweet baby Sue in your hotel bed"?

You state, and I quote:

"...If you had checked into that hotel – with revolver in hand (with your laptop in your baggage, and sweet baby Sue in your hotel bed, I wonder what would have been your fate Lord Sengbe..."

Did Tom Nyuma have a "revolver in hand" at the time he was checking into that inn? Such gross lies are part of the akarta mode of operation, aren't they?

I have NEVER read an article anywhere that states that "fact". Have you?

Were you there when he was checking into that inn? Did you carry the "ammunition" in your pockets at Tom Nyuma's behest? Why do you state this "LIE" so matter-of-factly? Do you hate the SLPP so intensely, and love the akarta peoples congress so immensely?

How would you know, or not know, that, that "revolver" was NOT / was planted in his room after the mugging? Do you really have a way of knowing this on a firsthand basis? Based on their record, I believe that if a "revolver" [9 mm automatic pistol, really, as stated] and 50-rounds of ammunition were ever found in Tom's hotel room, it was planted there by Stinking Leather Boots and his maggotty friends. Tom did NOT carry a gun, while in Sa Lon during his short stay in Sa Lon from the USA. That gun belonged to the apc boys. At this time, that is their weapon of choice. Remember the case in which Koroma's other bodyguard was found with a similar weapon in the presence of VP Berewa in Bombali district? Well!!

Please put two and two together and get four. You are a smart man, you can do the math!!!

Koroma's "intervention" for which I, and many others, appreciate, is of political convenience. Could it have been stage-managed to make him look good in the eyes of the general public, after the plot / conspiracy to eliminate a political nemesis, such as Tom Nyumah, had been hatched? Enquring minds would like to know.

Bra Cornie, in my own eyes, you are an honourable man most of the time, please be careful when you make agreeable statements about people you do not truly know, afterall, you last visited the country of your birth in 1970.

Be careful!!!

Sengbe,

My intellectual interests- are quite different from yours, I’m sure.

Why are you so quarrelsome? You want to shine that your SLPP light, go and shine it up somewhere else- take exception with someone else, not me.

Ron Noble will be the first to assure you that your definition of “akarta” cannot be confined to any Sierra Leone political party.

Don’t ask me any of your usual barrage of asinine questions such as “Do you hate the SLPP so intensely, and love the akarta peoples congress so immensely?”
What reason do you have for saying so? I’ve made it clear from the beginning that I like Alhaji Momodou Koroma.

I have no reason whatsoever to hate the SLPP or anyone in the SLPP. If you want to blow your trumpet of love for the SLPP you don’t have to start an artificial fight or argument or disagreement with me.

I have also made it clear, that as far as I know them – on a personality basis – again through the printed word, of the presidential candidates I like Hon Ernest Bai Koroma the most.
Now don’t make the mistake of wanting to politicize the psychology there.
I have a fairly good profiling of you, thorough your ruminations and interactions with others, e.g. Hon. Alieu Iscandari on this forum.

You start with a misunderstanding: “But Bra Cornie would you go to assasinate someone with your "sweet baby Sue in your hotel bed"? Someone with MY sweet baby Sue in his hotel bed??? No I wouldn’t. Certainly not. Sweet baby Sue is only sweet baby Sue and Tom of course in such a case would only be Uncle Tom.
Understand me correctly: according to one newspaper report Mr. Nyuma was in bed, with someone. Perhaps you meant to ask ” But Bra Cornie would you go to assasinate someone who had his "sweet baby Sue in the hotel bed"?
You were not there and I was not there. Could have been like moments before the reported arrest of Jesus, “"Then all the disciples forsook Him and fled.” -Matthew 26:56


Did Tom Nyuma have a "revolver in hand"? Well I read in more than one place that he had “a pistol”. By the way, do you – has a pistol or a revolver Sengbe? When last did you use one?

Who do you think you are, Perry Mason? Stop being childish with me - such ridiculous questions. Is it an interrogation? Do you know the truth of what happened? Motivation? – It’s something that could be locked in someone’s heart and you have neither the key nor the extra sensory perception abilities of an advanced fakir……

I last visited Sierra Leone in early 1970. the week that Seigneur Rochereau and his African Fiesta Sukisa played…I don’t know when last you visited but it seems to me that no matter how long you live in the USA, you will always be the same Sengbe (unlike Sengbe Pieh who fought tooth and nail to go back) and you still wear your tribal stripes and you emotions on a sleeve.

As for me, Jackie Tombo is still my favourite fish (without meat).

Finally Sengbe, in this case it’s word against word and up till today some assassinations, such as that of our Prime Minister Olof Palme, has still not been cleared up. I was shoulder to shoulder with him in the Jazz section of Academi bookshop at Odenplan a few days before Merry Crismess of 1985 and in just over sixty days after that he was brutally gunned down in the centre of Stockholm city…….
Benny Goodman was his favourite Clarinettist and jazz artist…..

This is the most lively and certainly the most important of Sierra Leone's public forums.

The running mate issue.

In articles that is otherwise full of lashon hara, libel and slander that targets and attempts character assassination and credibility of APC running mate Samuel Sam-Sumana, Sia Tiyaama draws our attention to this very important dimension:

“It is important that we focus our search light on these two individuals for the simple fact that they would be a heartbeat away from the presidency.”

It is the duty of the APC to bring honesty and clarity in refuting or accepting the allegations. Keeping quite and refusing to answer these charges, more or less means that they are true or not even worth denying. Some say, “Silence means consent”. Come on APC, they can’t just run your man down like that without even some noise coming from you……

This is an issue that cannot be swept under the carpet:

Bra Cornie, what political party do you belong to in Sa Lon, or Sweden?

Have you ever voted in any elections anywhere in your life? In Sa Lon? In Sweden?

Are you an instigator on behalf of the akarta peoples congress?

Are you usually on the other side of the truth?

Is that the way of a practicing Yoruba Jew? No offense/insult intended or meant by asking that question. Just a simple question.

Please answer those questions in truthfulness, and ye shall be "free".

Are you inclined to do so.

From your own philosophical perspective you must be on one side of truth whilst I am – as you express it, perhaps reminiscent of your Lord’s answer to Pontius Pilate, I am “usually on the other side of the truth” (Your truth)
We have the Torah and that is enough for us.

You may be a Mende Christian or a Christianised Mende who graduated from the Porro bush but if you mean to be sarcastic by identifying me as a ”Yoruba Jew”, I’d politely and kindly ask you to desist – for your own sake.
As far as politics is concerned I’m closer to this than to any of your political parties or partisan truths.

This is the kind of leader that I appreciate as Torah values morality and leadership go hand in hand : Moshe Feiglin

Okay, Bra Cornie, I will cease to identify you as a "Yoruba Jew" if you are offended by that terminology.

I was merely stating the facts as I know them through your writings on this forum, I thought. Not thinking that you might be offended by that nomenclature.

Cocorioko is certainly the most lively and the most important of Sierra Leone's public forums.

The running mate issue.

In an article that is otherwise full of lashon hara, libel and slander that targets and attempts character assassination and credibility of APC running mate Samuel Sam-Sumana, Sia Tiyaama draws our attention to this very important dimension:

“It is important that we focus our search light on these two individuals for the simple fact that they would be a heartbeat away from the presidency.”

It is the duty of the APC to bring honesty and clarity in refuting or accepting the allegations. Keeping quite and refusing to answer these charges, more or less means that they are true or not even worth denying. Some say, “Silence means consent”. Come on APC, they can’t just run your man down like that without even some noise coming from you……

This is an issue that cannot be swept under the carpet:

Are you not as equally guilty of saying the APC is good when the whole world knows it is a rotten club of people who brought Sierra Leone to its knees through rape of the economy and many other sad attributes? Bo, go sidom saful wit you troubul.

Was Ernest Koroma not a very poor insurance superintendent at NIC before the lebanese, Jamil Sahid Mohamed, rescued him from disgrace? Were his days at NIC not numbered because of gross insubordination to his then boss, Sheku Kamara?

Did you know how much he had to crawl under Jamil's feet before he could give his nod for Ernest Koroma to be accepted at RITCORP?

At RITCORP, was it not the late AKT who helped him to climb the corporate ladder very rapidly by undoing the then indian boss, Thakuta? Did the same AKT not join the SLPP because he found Ernest Koroma to be too selfish and dishonest? Give us a break, man! What do you know about Ernest Koroma and the APC? If you do not know, let me tell you now that your so-called leader stole RITCORP from Jamil when the latter had been framed up by the Momoh APC regime and had to flee the country for fear of persecution.

Was Ernest Koroma not part of the intrigue to scare Jamil out of the country so that his property, RITCORP, could be stolen by Ernest Koroma and other APC stalwarts? Did AKT and Ernest not fall out over the sharing of the RITCORP loot? Wait a minute. By the way, who are you? Saidu what? That name rings a bell.

This is naïve, if the Jamil’s part of the baseless allegation is totally wrong, then which is correct. Presumably Earnest’s life, which to me reflects nothing less than a success story, we all have our small beginnings, you should advise this loathing accuser to read biographies of great men and women, those that have made mark in history, it will extremely disappoint him to know that they started from zilch. Our country has refused to move, not even an inch over the past decade, Sierra Leone is in a primitively dark age, it takes people with goals, morals not necessarily Earnest Koroma, but inclusively people who can transform their lives from nothing to a position of trust, a position of national leadership only such people can transform our impoverish land from a common enemy.

It is a shame for people to think of the odds and not the positives . It is interesting to know that people only know the bad parts of the next President of Sierra Leone (Ernest Koroma) and nothing of his good parts . When you don't like someone , there is no reason to say bad things about that person . That person might be your BOSS in the near future and some of us know you guys by face and by real name . Weather or not you guys like it , Ernest Koroma will be the next President of Sierra Leone . Some of you people have never stepped your feet in Sierra Leone since you left the country some twenty something years ago . You are the guys who always say "BOTHO BATHA" nonscense about anyone that is trying to help the country . You all have stinking attitudes because non you guys know Ernest personally . All the reports you are giving about this hard working man is ear-say or 4th class information . Of all the candidates of this year's presidential election , Earnest Koroma is the fittest of them all . I have you guys' phone numbers which I will use to call you and to inform you that Earnest Koroma has been named the next President of our beloved Sierra Leone . If you don't have anything good to say about this man , I will advice you guys to just stay put and keep your stinking mouths shut and wait for the results . I thank you all .

The SLPP and their puppet electoral commisioner have always appeared shrewd to me, but the latest thought just keeps doing my head in.
First, the SLPP...errr...the electoral commissioner set a date for a general election in the midst of heavy rains when our poor and improverished people would not afford to travel. No one, but a few of the opposition members had the guts to challenge it.
And now looking through my Premiership fixture, I realise that that most eagerly awaited league (not least amongst Sierra Leoneans, who can sacrifice a Leone Stars match for the most boring premiership match) starts on the very day slated for the elections. Hummmph...Just thinking aloud.
Knowing that most of the APC supporters duplicate East End Lions supporters (sorry The Killers; no disrespect) would they sacrifice their premiership opening for an election which most of them have no faith in? I have my reservations. And guess what is on the premiership menu that day: Aston Villa Vs Liverpool...eehey/ Sunderland Vs Tottenham...oor/ West Ham Vs Man City...hey etc....
Would this football mad electorates dash to the Video Halls rather than the Pooling Stations? Who amognst those impassive electotrates would not want to see their new signings in action? Thank God the bigger boys play the next day. But untill then, more works for the opposition...Ah....incumbency

Having read Rtd Captain Josiah's defence on Tom Nyumah's assasination plot on Ernest Koroma, (Cocorioko frontpage) this reminds me the adage "a fish seller will never say the fish she sells are rotten." What do you expect of a man like Captain Josiah to say when he had been the bunch of corrupt elemnts that contributed to the plight and misery of Sierra Leone through their endless coup d'etat in that country. One of the odd reasons he gave is that, if Tom Nyumah wanted to assassinate Ernest Koroma the chances of failure is 0.01% knowing the professionalism of Tom Nyuma." It is shame to say that NPRC had a profesional army who could not even stand the rag-tag rebels of Foday Sankoh. The professionalism I know of the NPRC was to kill innocnet civilians, loot state coffers and surreptitiously handed power to the SLPP where they are now flocking as thugs and soldiers of fortune. If you talk of professionalism it may probably now exist in the SLAF with 25% because Britain and other international organizations have helped the paramilitary forces in Sierra Leone Which still bears the stigma of ethnicity and loyalty to the status quo.

Captain defending Tom is like trying to make a case why NPRC should have stayed in power. You may have done a good Job putting your personal life together but thousands of sierra Leonean did not have the luxury to write a book and collect Sales and Royalty on BLOOD MONEY. Whilst lots of people are still hurting by actions of NPRC Soldier .I employ you to embark on the path of repentance .Try to save your soul before it is too late. Tom is possessed by his thirst for power and glory. He is a Demon with the personality to become human whenever its suits him. Take a lesson of Peaceful existence from Col. Idris and Major Taqi. They are not the best but they are non partisan and very supporting to the healing process of Sierra Leone. Your Book can be summarized in one Sentence which I prefer not to say at this point, since we are talking about the issue of Tom the Fox of the Foxes in Warfare.

I really blame the Americans for unlishing such a dangerous criminal back into our society. Do you know what Tom is pursuing right now? He has joined the gang of separatist to eliminate the out-going vice president because he is a different Mende.

He like Madaa and John Benjamin does not have confidence on the Mendes from you know where……..My point will be proven when they loose the elections on August 11th 2007. John Benjamin and the elite from ………. will dominate the SLPP and eliminate every last Party member that is not from that region. Like the APC we are the Peoples Party. This time, rest assured you will fly from NY to Freetown and get there in time for lunch. You will drive to Bo and back like going to DC and back. You will see life expectancy rise to that of the civilized world. You will see Good Sierra Leoneans take the lead to lift the country from bondage because of the quality of the leadership in Ernest Bia Koroma.Everything that is happening now is happening for a reason.Ernest Koroma commands so much respect entrusted by the people everywhere he went like wise Out going Vice president.

Lets continue to pray for guidiance and for the to protect him and all of us during this difficiult times in sierra leoneans history.

NPRC PAID SALARY ON TIME.
NPRC WAS AND WILL EVER BE COMMENDED BY THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY AND PEOPLE THAT MATTERS AND HAVE BRAIN, FOR WORK WELL DONE.
NPRC MADE THE AVAILABILITY OF RADIO STATIONS AND PIPE BORNE WATER IN PLACES LIKE BO TOWN AND OTHER PROVINCIAL HQ A REALITY.
NPRC WAS FIGHTING REBELS THAT HAD INTERNATIONAL BACKING FROM LIBERIA,BURKINA FASO,IVORY COAST,AND LYBIA.

You are a confused bloke who has no sense of direction most especially when it comes to issues relating to the well being of Sierra Leone. Also been a tribalist and a member of the SLPP which NPRC supported, you shy away from the waton destruction of lives these NPRC hooligans perpetrated to inocent peolpe in Sierra Leone. Why didn't you admirers of these blood thirsty junta allow them to stay in power as Ghana did when Rawlings overthrew a legitimate government, instead you hypocritical and savagely engineered the ousting of the same NPRC that you admired to allow the self-centered egoism of the SLPP to take power through quasi elections. All of you that responded to this posting need to be ashamed of yourselves because you have no sense of direction for your lives nor any love for Sierra Leone. That traitor- Maada Bio who came and acquired a green card in the U.S. after he betrayed Strasser, use the same tribal attitude by betraying his female body-guard by not applying for asylum for her because she is not a mende instead all his family benefitted from the asylum. It is shame for you to admire military dictatorship because its the making your of mende tribe.

Are you not as equally guilty of saying the APC is good when the whole world knows it is a rotten club of people who brought Sierra Leone to its knees through rape of the economy and many other sad attributes? Bo, go sidom saful wit you troubul.

Was Ernest Koroma not a very poor insurance superintendent at NIC before the lebanese, Jamil Sahid Mohamed, rescued him from disgrace? Were his days at NIC not numbered because of gross insubordination to his then boss, Sheku Kamara?

Did you know how much he had to crawl under Jamil's feet before he could give his nod for Ernest Koroma to be accepted at RITCORP?

At RITCORP, was it not the late AKT who helped him to climb the corporate ladder very rapidly by undoing the then indian boss, Thakuta? Did the same AKT not join the SLPP because he found Ernest Koroma to be too selfish and dishonest? Give us a break, man! What do you know about Ernest Koroma and the APC? If you do not know, let me tell you now that your so-called leader stole RITCORP from Jamil when the latter had been framed up by the Momoh APC regime and had to flee the country for fear of persecution.

Was Ernest Koroma not part of the intrigue to scare Jamil out of the country so that his property, RITCORP, could be stolen by Ernest Koroma and other APC stalwarts? Did AKT and Ernest not fall out over the sharing of the RITCORP loot? Wait a minute. By the way, who are you? Saidu what? That name rings a bell.

"DA VINCI CODE" WON'T TELL YOU(PART 2) (unu always go lek dis wan)

Posted by Dr. CHARLES CURTIS-THOMAS on September 29, 2006 at 17:38:52:

Since I wrote part one of this series, I have been wanting to write part two, but, as those who write will attest,writing is a jealous mistress that demand undivided attention. This is a dramatization of "the life and times of MARY MAGDALENE". As I ask the Holy Spirit to improve my writing so as to spread the WORD, I have use a new form of writing in order to bring the story of Mary alive; I am venturing into a new realm of marrying, as it were, biblical facts with plausible fiction. Personally, the story of Mary has special meaning for me as it shows that Christ is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo forgiving and loving who without condemning the past offers every soul a new future; also, it examplifies how the world is soooooooooooo quick to "cast the first stone" on us when we sin forgetting that all have sinned. Who was the real Mary Magdalene ? From the temple to the tomb, the enigmatic woman appears throughout the gospels, never very far from Chris's shadow. Speculations run rampant about her true identity. Was this mysterious disciple just a HARLOT, or as some suggest(including me long time age when I did not know any different), the secret wife of Jesus?.
So, then, sit back as I attempt to dramatize this story. "UNU ALWAYS FOR LEK DIS WAN".

"GRAB HER!" an angry voice shouted, shattering the early-morning silence. The heavy wooden door opened, slamming against the wall with a thud, making a deeper hole in the already-damaged plaster.

Startled by this sudden invasion, Mary's heart froze. It appeared the day she had feared most had come.

"ADULTERER! PROSTITUTE! GRONA GAL! RARAY GIRL! BOWARAH ! AHSHAWOO! RANCHER! LONG-STEP MATRASS! beeeeep, beeeeeep, beeep!" the invaders shouted. Contempt dripped from their leering faces, like saliva from the mouth of rabid dogs. The Temple Rabbis and Priests and Elders poured into her small, private place of business, intent on the kill.

Her customer slipped from beneath her sheets, cast her a sheepish shrug, and put on his pants and shirt, acting not at all surprised by the intrusion.

THIS IS A TRAP! she thought as she gaze at the men standing against the wall in the shadows, their embarrassed faces shrouded with the last remnants of night. Several of these men were her former customers, but she knew that to identify them now would only intensify her impending punishment.

From time to time, in order to maintain a semblance of piety and to appease the devout among the people, the scribes, priests, and Lawyers (no, Alieu Iscandri was not among them) would make an example of one of the out-of-town prostitutes by parading her through the streets for the gawking bystanders to curse and spit on. Then, in a mockery of pious zeal, they would violently expel their victim from the holy city through the Dung Gate, in a display of artificial indignation.

I SHOULD HAVE STAYED IN MAGDALA, Mary though as she clutched the flimsy bedsheet. Gathering the bedding about her to hide her nakedness (yes, she was caught in the very act), she struggled to her feet.

"SEIZE HER! DON'T LET HER GET AWAY," one of the priests snarled while another lunged for her. A third person, a Temple guard, grabbed her by her upper arm, his nails digging into her tender flesh. Mary tried to resist, but the man's grip was like a vice. The terrified woman began to tremble uncontrollably. She had been suspicious when this NEW CUSTOMER appeared at the door of her room so early in the morning, but she could not resist the money. THEY ARE REALLY GOING TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF ME,she thought.

"Get her some clothes." One of the Lawyers snatched her from the guard's clutches. "Humph! I say take her as she is, naked," a scribe defended. "It will be more convincing." "No, He is in the Temple, and we cannot take her to the Temple like that!" an older priest added with final authority as he ran his eyes lustfully over her quivering body.

One of the men leaning against the wall handed the priest a crumpled and dirty robe that had been draped over a small stool. "Put this on. Hide your shame if you still have one"! the priest snapped, tossing the soiled garnemt at the quaking woman. Grateful for even the crude covering, Mary snatched the robe from the man's outstretched hand and wrapped it about herself. Though a prostitute, she still had a sense of modesty. Under the gaze of the continued lusting eyes of her accusers she covered her naked body. Her fingers trembled as she tied the belt of the dirty, oversized robe about her waist.

Upon command of the older priest, the two Temple guards seized her arms and pulled her toward the door. The Rabbis stepped back, allowing the guards and the woman to pass. She exchanged a knowing glance with one of the Rabbi, who is a current customer. He lowered his eyes in shame. Revered leaders of his stature would never touch a woman with her reputation, in public that is.

The guards dragged her through the streets. Their muscular fingers bruised her olive skin. Her long, splendid hair, her pride and glory, fell tangled over her face. She struggled to maintain her footing over the rocks along the roadway. WHERE ARE THEY TAKING ME ? she wondered. Up ahead loomed the holy Temple. THE TEMPLE? Her panic grew. WHY THE TEMPLE?

She could hear the shouts and curses from spectators as they passed. Curious housewives and merchants began to fall in behind this strange procession.

OH GOD, Mary prayed desperately, PLEASE DON'T LET MARTHA AND LAZARUS SEE ME AS I REALLY AM. A sick, hopeless laugh burst through her sobs. HOW CAN I EXPECT THE PURE HOLY ONE OF ISREAL TO HEAR THE PRAYER OF SUCH FILTHY SINNER SUCH AS I ? I HAVE GONE SO FAR, TOO FAR FOR GOD TO EVER FORGIVE ME OR HEAR MY PRAYERS.

A movement off to the side of the narrow street caused Mary's breath to catch in her throat. Priests were PICKING UP SOME OF THE LARGE STONES that were intermittently scattered in front of the buildings, used to hold open shop doors. "They are going to stone me!" she gasped. A small pack of agitated dogs followed the procession up the street yapping at the unusual early-morning excitement. Mary wailed. "They are going to stone me to death, and then those scavenging dogs will eat me AS THEY DID JEZEBEL!"

She had heard the story of Jazebel many times, growing up in a faithful Jewish home. But she had never imagine her fate would be the same as that of AHAB'S wicked queen. On her left she saw a shopkeeper picked UP A ROCK. A FISH SALESMAN ON HER RIGHT DID THE SAME. "Why are they taking me to the Temple?" Mary asked the guard who held her right arm, her eyes filled with perplexity and pain. "Why don't they stone me outside the gate?" The guard said, "you may still have a chance. If they stone the Teacher, they may probably let you go. He is the one they want."

The procession finally reached the temple. The priests paused to shake the dust from the bottom of their robes and folded their hands together within the blue tasseled sleeves of their fine, white garments to assume a respectable religious demeanor. The procession moved further to where Jesus was standing. Surrounded by a wall of onlookers making an escape impossible, the guards released their grip on Mary, and she collapsed, trembling, at Jesus' feet. Above the dim of shouts and mocking, she heard her accusers presented before Jesus their lethal charge against her.

"Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses, in the law , commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do you say?" The terrifying array of emotions caused Mary to lose consciousness briefly. Crumpled on the cold marble pavement as she was, no one even knew she fainted--no one except Jesus who'd missed nothing about the young woman. Long before she'd enter the courtyard, long before she had taken the first stranger to her bed, long before she's taken the first step that would lead to her mortification, He had anticipated this moment in time.

Mary regained consciousness. The courtyard atmosphere had changed. It was strangely quietly. She peeked out from under her disheveled hair to see Jesus calmly tracing words in the dust of the Temple floor. At first she could not make out the words. She watched as He stood and said, "HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN AMONG YOU, LET HIM CAST A STONE AT HER FIRST".

Mary cringed, expecting a hail of stones to descend upon her. Instead she heard a thud and someone walking away. Opening her eyes, she watched as the Teacher stooped down once more and continue writing. What was He writing ? She listened to the whispers of the diminishing crowd. He was ENUMERATING the sins of the Temple officials, including those that had slept with Mary, for all to see.

After what seem like an eternity, the gentle hand of Jesus touched her shoulder. She brushed her hair from her face and raised her eyes. Mary saw Jesus looking back at her WITH INFINITE COMPASSION. On His face was a slight quizzical smile, as if He were wondering why she would be groveling in such an undignified manner in this holy place. Standing slowly, she gazed about and noticed that the Scribes and Pharisees were gone. THE HYPOCRITES WHO HAD ENTRAPPED HER HAD FLED THE TEMPLE. Then Jesus addressed her with a term of respect: "Madam, where are your accusers? Has no one condemned you?"

Mary looked around bewildered and said, "NO ONE, LORD". And Jesus said to her, "NEITHER DO I CONDEMN YOU; GO AND SIN NO MORE.

Mary thought this was too good to be true. "GO AND DON'T DO IT AGAIN"? I am an adulterer, a prostitute, an ahshawoo, a raray girl, a bowarah! AND HIS ONLY REBUKE IS "GO AND SIN NO MORE"?

Could it be true she was free to go ? She had been reprieved, rescued from her just punishment. Her initial instinct was to flee the place as quickly as possible, but she felt constrained by an overwhelming gratitude to thank the ADVOCATE. Willingly Mary threw herself at the Master's feet and poured her heartfelt appreciation mingled with tears. As she did, she looked at the ground and saw the words "ADULTERER, PROSTITUTE, RARAY GIRL, AHSHAWOO,AND BOWARAH" staring back at her.

Before she could seek answers in the face of the gentle Teacher, a strong morning BREEZE CAME THROUGH THE TEMPLE COURT, ERASING THE ENTIRE CATALOG OF HER SINS ETCHED IN THE DUST ! At that moment Mary felt an enormous burden of guilt lift from her soul.

"GO AND SIN NO MORE"! "HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN LET HIM CAST THE FIRST STONE"!

It is refreshing not belonging to any political party. It sets the tone, if you will, for objectivity. If and when I do vote, my vote will be based on national interest as opposed to selfish and/or party interest (can someone say "well said"?).

As we brace ourselves for the August '07 election, excitment is building and certainly tension is mounting. Some Parties, (and I am tempted to say everyone of them), will inevitably resort to some degree of "election rigging".

There has been talks of having "election observers" present during the election to prevent "youki-youki". But..."for real, for real" DOES HAVING ELECTION OBSERVERS PRESENT DURING AN ELECTION PREVENT ELECTION RIGGING? To help me answer this very important question, I had to "study" election patterns in Cameroon over the past two decades wherein "election Observers" were present. Lets take a look at my findings.

Cameroon has a population of more than sixteen million and about 279 languages are spoken there! Slightly more than half of Cameroonians are Christians, a quarter follow traditional belief systems, and about 22 percent are muslims. There are approximately 260 distinct ethnic groups. Since achieving independence in 1960, Cameroon has been ruled by one party (and you always thought that APC was the only party that wanted to stay in power for ever!) and only two Presidents (call this "pass-ah-die-ism"). Cameroon is Africa's largest producer of timber and is the world's fifth-largest producer of cocoa that goes into making chocolate. The nation has the reputation of being one of the most corrupt countries in the world and actually earned the "Transparency Internationl's" number one ranking as corruption champion two years in a row, in 1998 and 1999.

Cameroon has Paul Biya as president. Under pressure at home and abroad, Biya legaliized opposition parties in 1990. A presidential election was held in 1992. The U.S. based National Democratic Institute for International Affairs Arrived in Cameroon to help train election officials, but stayed to "observe the election" and to watch in dismay as the government ignored normal democratic procedures. "It would not be an exaggeration," the observers would later report, "to suggest that this election system was designed to fail." The government-controlled television gave Biya 142 minutes of time to present his case, while allowing the opposition parties a combined total of 12 minutes. Names of eligible voters were crossed off the registry and there were widespread reports of multiple voting and voting by underage residents. In some areas known to be anti-Biya, polling stations were moved without warning to reduce turnout. Needless to say Biya won the election.

In 2004, Biya faced a new presidential election and came up with a new and novel tactic in the world of "rigged elections". In previous elections he had perfected the arts of suppressing opposition campaigning and stacking the voter rolls. But he faced criticism from "international election-monitoring groups". In July 2004, He signed a $400,000 deal with the Washington, D.C., law and lobbying firm of Patton Boggs to improve Cameroonian ties with the U.S at a time when the State department had said that Biya's security forces had "committed numerous unlawful killings and were responsible for torture, beatings and other abuses," and that the government "continued to arrest and detain arbitrarily various opposition politicians." One of the Patton Boggs lobbyists, former U.S. representative Greg Laughlin, a Texas Democrat, put together a bipartisan "observer group" called the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress. With Biya's government covering the bill, the Association flew in six ex-congressmen, who "observed" the October 11 presidential election in which Biya claimed a 71 percent landslide, declared it a "free election", and flew home. One of the former congressmen, Ronnie Shows, a Democrat from Mississippi, enthused, "this is what democracy is about."
Another "observer group" from the Commonwealth Nations, led by former Canadian prime minister Joe Clark, saw the election process differently. They said that the registration process, which the U.S. group had arrived too late to observe, had "missed a considerable portion of the voting-age population of Cameroon". "We ran into swarms of people who had been declared ineligible to vote," said Clark. Needless to say that the Catholic Bishop's Conference of Cameroon also accused Biya's Government of vote-rigging.

So then, as we approach the August '07 election in Sierra Leone will the "election observer group(s)" be another pretext by the government to rigg the next election? If the SLPP wins the next election, will there be talks of "election rigging"?

ONLY TIME WILL TELL!

MOMODU KOROMA’S QUEST TO TAKE OVER MAKENI -
new Citizen Publications- 31 Jul 2007

Minister of Labour who doubles as the Assistant Secretary General of the SLPP, Alpha Timbo, said that if the people of Makeni wanted to benefit from the National Social Security and Insurance Trust (NASSIT) Social Safety Net, they should learn to cooperate with the government of the day.

He reminded the people about the recalcitrance of the residents of Kamaranka who thought they could take a different direction from that of the SLPP and how these people missed benefiting from the NASSIT Social Safety Net.

Proposed transport terminal, mall site handed over
________________________________________
The official handing over of the site for the construction of a transport terminal and shopping mall in Kenema city by NASSIT and Kenema City Council partnership has taken place at the bus park in Kenema.
The chairman of the occasion, Dr Sandi Bockarie who is the principal of the Eastern Polytechnic in Kenema, said the occasion was historic as the construction of such an edifice would not only transform Kenema city but would give pride to the Nongowa people. He disclosed that the construction would be completed in a year’s time.
The Resident Minister East, Sahr Randoff Fillie Faboe, catalogued some of the development structures that had given Kenema city a face lift in recent times.
In his long list of catalogue were the Sierra Leone Commercial Bank, the Magistrate and High Court building, the NASSIT Regional office and now the Transport Terminal and Shopping Mall.
He called on the people to take great care and protect these structures.
The chairman board of directors of Kambui Property Holdings Limited, Moluku Sulaiman Tarawally, gave a brief background on NASSIT and thanked President Tejan Kabbah for the establishment of NASSIT.
He disclosed that 4.5 billion Leones would be used to construct the terminal and that 80% of the fund would come from NASSIT while 20% from the Kenema City Council.

My final take on this:

RICHARD BONA? Richard could not say such things, Come again! YOU MEAN THAT ALL SOMEBODY HAS TO DO IS TO PROMISE/ PLEDGE TO VOTE FOR THE SLPP AND THEN STRETCH OUT HIS HAND TO RECEIVE 200,000 LEONES WHICH IS the equivalent of $ 186.?

With a total capital of 5.6 billion Leones, that’s enough money to systematically buy a total of 28,000 people. That’s a drop in the ocean for a nation of some 2, 600,000 registered voters…..

Sorry Bona,

That calculation was wrong , but feel free to corrector dajust this: If - as according to you, NASSIT has a total of 5.6 billion Leones bribe money, then at 200,000 a head, it would mean a total of approximately 10, 206 people, @ $186 a head.

Not that we - you, me the SLPP is advocating briibery and corruption.

Now if PMDC came up with $200 a head, instead?

Like “Moody’s Mood”, there you go, there you go, there you go again: “Le 5.7 billion leones has been spent so far on those who promise to vote for the SLPP”

How does a promise translate into a vote by secret ballot? Is that what you and Johnny E. Leigh mean by “CHAP YOU CHAP AND VOTE FOR YOU MAN/ take the money and vote for your conscience”?

This does not seem to be the purpose of NASSIT – which has been in existence for quite some time now.

“If the people of Makeni wanted to benefit from the National Social Security and Insurance Trust (NASSIT) Social Safety Net, they should learn to cooperate with the government of the day.
He reminded the people about the recalcitrance of the residents of Kamaranka who thought they could take a different direction from that of the SLPP and how these people missed benefiting from the NASSIT Social Safety Net.”

My understanding of the message is that the benefits to be obtained from the National Social Security and Insurance Trust (NASSIT) are available to ALL THE PEOPLE and that some of the people should not boycott these opportunities, on the grounds of party politics or on the grounds of that they don’t like the SLPP and then complain. The emphasis is that “they should learn to cooperate with the government of the day.” the emphasis is on the GOVERNMENT not the Party.
Seems to me that the emphasis is on co-operation with the government - to follow the procedures etc. How can those who do not want to follow the procedures benefit?
Does the government say that only those who have an SLPP membership card are entitled to benefit by this government programme?

Please answer the question.

Who is it that doesn't understand what I wrote, you or me?

So some of your people who you say, "are not impresed with the SLPP and therefore missed out of the payout”, missed out because they do not accept the government of the day and the government of the day is the SLPP government.

I think that when Winakabs in Europe said that he prefers the old thief to the new thief, he actually meant, that it’s preferable to have the one you know - that's much better than the one you don't (yet) know.

About comprehension, there are some people who are good at making sense out of nonsense. That’s more difficult than making nonsense out of sense.

Let’s see how that party debate goes on 5th August 2007.

Hon Ernest Bai will accuse, V-P Berewa will drum up achievements starting with the state’s resurrection from the ashes and the SLPP government’s dogged progress from the brink of the abyss to where we are now. I don’t know what Akpata’s prince Charles will say – but he should not aggrandise the PMDC ego which has still not been tried in what the Torah calls “the iron crucible” (that kind of aggrandisement is purely cultural and anti Jantelagen with which I was brought up, after my teens) and Mr. Berewa’s SLPP Manifesto which proclaims zero tolerance for corruption – how do you beat that?

I didn’t mention that our Ingmar Bergman is gone. Same birthday as Princess Victoria and me…….

NAR SENSE MAKE BOOK AND NOT THE OTHER WAY ROUND?

For your edification only (don’t be amused):

Sanda Magbonlonton: 2000 voters may be disenfranchised

An estimated 2000 voters in the Tainkotops-Makama in Safronko chiefdom may not vote come August 11 if immediate measures are not put in place to repair their roads.
According to our Port Loko correspondent, about ten towns and villages have already been cut off from the rest of the chiefdom due to the poor road network and that many more will be inaccessible with the continuing heavy down pour of rain.
He further states that the APC aspirant, Ibrahim Bundu, has made a special reference to the Maganthe Bridge whose reconstruction project is now standstilled and how it will be extremely difficult to convey electoral materials to these areas.
Meanwhile the incumbent parliamentarian for Port Loko District Constituency 52 was accorded a hero’s welcome at his native Gbinty.
People turned out in large numbers to receive their candidate who was accompanied by a motorcade by several of other symbol winners in the district as they proceeded to the local court barray for a general APC meeting.
Hon. Ibrahim Bundu, in his address, reminded his audience about the confidence the leadership of the party reposed in him and pleaded with all to ensure that the seat was triumphantly returned to the APC party.
A total of seven people within the APC opted for the party symbol which has been awarded to him and he is now contesting against Dr Abass Bundu of the SLPP.

I have been hoping that the three top tier parties namely APC,PMDC and SLPP will have a Presidential and Vice Presidential debates before the forthcoming general elections.I am perplexed by there failure to participate.
Are there reason(s) for not doing so?

Can some help me out here as it seems to me they cannot articulate their agenda/policies.
Maybe they are not "Presidential Material"/"Mumu leaders".

What a life in the political history of Sierra leone politics.

I have today decided to endorse Ernest Koroma as my candidate for the August 11th Presidential Elections.This has been one of the most difficult decision I have made in recent times.I believe that Ernest has the wherewithal to move Sierra Leone forward in terms of sustainable development.I have personally known this guy since I was a kid,I have witnessed his growth from an Insurance Officer at National Insurance Company to Managing Director of Reliance Trust Insurance and now to Presidential candidate.Reliance Insurance is a case in point of how this guy can transform an unknown entity to an Insurance powerhouse in the country.I believe that if given the opportunity he can do the same for Sierra Leone.He is cool and calculated under pressure and most importantly he is a good listener and a great communicator.

I am supporting Ernest Koroma because he is the new kid on the block who is untainted by corruption and this is what our country needs at this critical juncture-a breath of fresh air.We have seen our forty years of bad governance has ruined our country.We are still crying for electricity,clean water,good roads,jobs for youths,food,etc in a country awashed with mineral resources and fertile land.What a shame to those who destroyed our country and who are still clamouring for more.

I know the APC under Siaka Stevens set the basis for the socio-economic breakdown of Sierra Leone and a so called General Momoh exacerbated the problem,but let face it Kabbah and co has not fared any better.They claim to have ended the war.Okay,I am giving them that ,under their regime peace returned to Sierra leone due to the concerted effort of the International Community,after peace returned Kabbah threw his war time commander-Hinga Norman-under the bus;well,if the late Hinga Norman was guilty of war crimes then Kabbah should also be indicted because he took orders from him as his commander in chief.

I have always been a non partisan as far as Sierra Leone politics is concerned,but in 1996 I voted for Kabbah with the hope that,given his international experience he would turn the country around.Oh!I was wrong.Under his rule,corruption permeated all sectors of society,cronyism and nepotism gained new heights,perennial blackouts continued unabated,etc.

This man,Kabbah,had the best opportunity to turn Sierra Leone around and he failed miserably.Under his rule,Sierra Leone received more donor funds than at any other time in our history and he has very little to show for it.He promised food self sufficiency by distributing tractors to party operatives,he promised us infrastructural development in the form of building a link to the outside world,he promised railway,abundant electricity,etc,and most recently eventhough he would be leaving office in a matter of days,he again promised one hundred hospitals to be built.I believe that he has come to the conclusion that the vast majority of Sierra Leoneans are stupid and that they are so gullible that they would continue to buy his lies and deception.The lies and deception that caused him to impose Solomon Berewa as SLPP's flag bearer.When,I first heard that Solo Bee was the the presidential aspirant for the ruling party.The first thought that ran through my mind was that,these people are not serious-"Berewa ,one of the most corrupt Government official is aspiring to be president."Sierra Leone is doomed,if Berewa becomes President.This is the guy who as a private lawyer conspired with some Israeli businessmen to reap his motherland.This is the same Berewa whose foreign bank account was secretly disclosed to Kabbah by a top diplomat in Freetown and this is the same Berewa that was selected by Kabbah to continue the status quo.My fellow countrymen,Solo Bee is neck deep in corruption,just ask Val Collier,he has the MIK Bayoh files.I cry for Mother Sierra Leone if this guy wins the election.

Fellow Sierra Leoneans,I know that you are hungry because of the policies of Kabbah and Berewa and would accept gifts(food,rum,drugs) from the highest bidder.You can accept the food because you need it but please don't allow yourselves to be used by these politicians,you would eventually be dumped,Stop the violence and stop it now.On August 11,before casting your vote ask yourself if you are better off now than four years ago or if the country has improved in your estimation,if the answer is yes vote for the status quo,if no vote for an alternative candidate.
In my own case,I would be voting for Ernest Koroma because I believe that he constitutes the new breed and that he has the vision to lead Sierra Leone in the 21st century.

First round of results will show Berewah leading Ernest by a small margin with Margai a distant third. Berewah is the best of all these less convincing candidates. We are glad that we have Momodou Koroma as VP. This will prepare him to the coverted position as the first Temne president in the waiting.

Kelfalla in his response to Kabs, Morie and other's woefully failed to clean up his act. He claimed to be in N.J. when the Tom Nyuma saga broke but that he waited 4 days without seeing a condemnation from Cocorioko. That is a big fat lie. Cocorioko was lightening fast on that story and even published accounts from members of the Nyuma family. A lot of Cocorioko readers including myself got that news from the Rev.'s website. I donot think it was Cocorioko's business to rush into publicly admonishing and condeming someone else for Nyuma's stupidity. Beside's, the Freetown-based SLPP mouth piece, Sylvia, had already published a bogus account of what happened. That, incidentally, was Awareness Times' first publication after almost a one week news blackout (apparently for failing to pay their bills).

Kallon's analogy about President Kabba's breakfast is a disgrace. The analogy makes no sense, and people of Sierra Leone do not even know what a breakfast is. Most families in Sierra Leone operate on a 0-0-1 formular (allumni of FBC during the cafe' years know exactly what this formula denotes). Kallon's analogy is an insult, at the very least.

My advice to Prof. Kallon and Prof. Maada Sia Tiyaama, is to use their book book knowledge to directly communicate to the registered voters in Sierra Leone and convince them to vote for their tribal headman, Berewa on August 11. The two loud mouth (or maybe loud pen) professors must remember that Sierra Leoneans are no longer fools, so they must prepare to explain to the people cogent reasons why they think Berewa is the better candidate apart from the fact that he is Mende and heading the SLPP ticket.

Campaign for your party by highlighting the successes you achieved after 12 years (on a piece of index card) and elaborate on the old and newly manufactured promises you have compiled in a pamphlet as thick as Prof. Kallon's doctoral thesis. Do not just disrespect aspirants from other parties and cry over the errors of former governments as a means to brainwash the people, but rather remind the people about the good this goverment has done and then tell them about your plans for the next five years. Crying down the other parties won't cut it for you this time.

When other aspirants do not renounce thuggery but on the contrary attempt to reinforce it in our national politics by using the RUF as bodyguards to brutalize innocent people, then the Kelfala Kallons of the world have a right to denounce such barbaric behaviors of the party that you so much admire and want to vote for.

The West African nation of Sierra Leone is to hold elections on August 11 to replace President Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, who is credited with bringing the nation out of a decade-long civil war. Candidates are vying to replace Mr. Kabbah, who was first elected in 1996. Kari Barber reports from Freetown that discontent in the impoverished and war-torn nation means opposition candidates are finding a good deal of support.


Minority leader Ernest Koroma
Sierra Leone's recovery from the devastating civil war that ended in 2002 is a slow process. The economy is stagnant and infrastructure remains in disrepair. Thousands of former combatants and victims of brutal attacks by rebels struggle to reintegrate in a society with few opportunities.

Supporters of the opposition say the ruling SLPP has not done enough to improve the diamond-rich nation's desperate situation.

Many are backing parliament minority leader Ernest Koroma, who has promised to expand the availability of electricity -- a top concern of voters.


President Ahmad Tejan Kabbah
President Ahmad Tejan Kabbah bid farewell to parliament after serving the maximum two terms. He is supporting his vice president, Soloman Berewa, to succeed him and provide continuity. "Today, five years on, thanks to the visionary leadership of my government coupled with the resilience of our people, Sierra Leone is now a safe, secure and stable country."

However, some young voters say the government needs to do more than just stabilize the country, it needs to push forward to develop infrastructure to entice more foreign investment.


"We pray for good elections, violentless," prays an Imam.
They support candidate Charles Margai, nephew of the country's first prime minister. Theophilus Sbenda edits an opposition newspaper. "We are taking the lead now. We are forcing our way. Our elders, I am sorry to say, have failed us to an extent that we cannot leave the running of the country in their hands any longer."

Societal ills that led to civil war are still present, and analysts say they could once again threaten the nation. For many, this election will be viewed as an indicator of Sierra Leone's progress toward stability.

False Cabinet List Propaganda.... APC Hits Back at SLPP Publicity Secretary
Posted by on Jul 31, 2007, 14:37



Statement by the APC on the False cabinet list

(1) The undated statement regarding a Cabinet of 24 Portfolios printed under the letterhead of the All People’s Congress (APC), purporting to be written by the Party’s National Secretary General is absolutely untrue because only a President-elect enjoys the constitutional. Right and privilege to constitute Offices for Ministers of the Government of the Republic of Sierra Leone.

(2) The first mark of falsehood in the statement is its classification as an “Internal Memo,” for the consideration of a “committee on the Appointment of Minster, Ambassadors and Heads of Parastatal” No such committee presently exists in the APC and the Leader of the Party and Presidential Candidate is unaware of any organization within the party deliberating the constitution of offices for Ministers of Government;

(3) The second falsehood alleges that the Leader of the APC is waiting for suggestions to “finalize” the “List of Ambassador and Heads of Parastatals.” The Leader and Presidential Candidate is not waiting to finalize any list which he has not requested from any organization of the party or official.

(4) The third falsehood is that there are current negotiations between the PMDC and the APC to include Mr. Charles Margai and Chief Surrur in a putative APC administration pending a second ballot as a predicate for that proposition. While Mr. Margai and Chief Surrur are men of goodwill and of considerable abilities, the APC has not entered into any negotiations as the statement in the so called internal memorandum suggests.

(5) Mr. Victor Reider the SLPP’s Publicity Secretary claimed on the F.M. 103 Radio Programme, Straight talk that he has the original of the purported list of Cabinet Ministers. This confirms that the false document is a fabrication of the SLPP malicious propaganda machinery. No doubt, it is intended to introduce an undesirable chasm in the fabric of our national cohesion.

(6) Thus, any statement on forming a Cabinet is premature at this time because the APC Presidential Candidate and the probable President of the Republic of Sierra Leone is in the course of campaigning for the August 11, 2007 elections and has not contemplated forming a Cabinet at this inauspicious time. This will only happen after victory is declared by NEC and the new President sworn into office. Let us remind everybody that the exercise of appointing a Cabinet is the sole prerogative f the President.

Miss Southern Africa UK: The Ultimate Beauty Pageant
Source R. Anson Press


Like every success story, it starts with a humble beginning. And for
the Miss Southern Africa Pageant, it all started with a humble ambition
of helping the AIDS suffering children of the Southern African region.

In 2004, the London-based events company Msindo’s Entertainment decided
to create a brand new approach in promoting charity awareness, and
eventually came up with an effective channel - a beauty pageant.
Thereafter, Miss Southern Africa was born.

Initially, everyone thought it would just be another beauty
competition, but because of its charitable platform, Miss Southern Africa created
a noticeable mark in the UK and earned international respect. Thus, in
Miss Southern Africa, beauty is not the main factor, but a vehicle to
promote charitable awareness and human concern.

Since 2004, Miss Southern African pageant has grown, with growing
numbers of countries participating and more attention received. Miss
Southern Africa has been recognised by most community magazines as one of top
three grand slam pageants to promote togetherness in the communities
while helping suffering children who benefit from the show.

In 2005, EA Magazine declared Miss Southern Africa as the most
anticipated beauty event in the community for having the most competitive set
of candidates (compared to other African pageants in the UK)
elsewhere in the continent; the pageant’s popularity has continuously
increased. With more women wanting to become Miss Southern Africa, the
number of Miss Southern Africa pageant contestants has grown some coming
from as far as America, Africa and Australia. At present, Miss SA
holds the record of having the greatest number of international-level
contests, and continuously growing.

Miss SA nowadays is also considered as the “toughest” community beauty
contest. From the quality of candidates to the selection process, the
pageant organisers have the most scrupulous criteria. Seemingly
never-ending interviews with hard to answer questions are always on the way to
the crown.

The 3rd edition of Miss SA UK erased the records of its previous years.
Miss SA UK 2006 was more publicised and much more competitive girls
vied for the crown. It was a real success story despite the mishaps CM
Events Productions had when the supposedly host venue failed to meet the
requirements of the host committee.

This years Miss SA UK will be held at the prestigious venue Entyce in
Woolwich South East London on Bank Holiday 26th August 2007. This
year’s pageant is in aid of ‘thatu’ a UK supporting self help initiatives in
poorly resourced communities in Southern Africa. This years contest is
to be hosted by Makosi of Big Brother fame and Winston Kabia Esq judges will include Managing director of Mahogany Model Agency Sola Oyebade

GUDDA, India (CNN) -- In Gudda, a village with very little, residents are literally beaming. Just two years ago, villagers had never seen light after dark, unless it came from the moon. Then, solar light arrived and changed everything.


Children in Gudda stand on rooftops near a solar panel. Solar power first arrived two years ago.

1 of 3 "When the lanterns first arrived, the villagers asked, 'What is this?' " says Hanuman Ram, the local solar engineer. "I explained to them how it worked. Then slowly, as people saw it, they said, 'Wow, what a thing this is!' "

There are no real roads that lead to the tiny village in the state of Rajasthan in northwestern India, home to about 100 families. There are only thin strips of tar dotted with massive potholes that force vehicles into thick brush. Other times, cars have to maneuver over just dirt.

There is no electricity -- power lines don't extend out here. Water is scarce, too. At the village well, women balance jugs of water on their heads, deftly evading the livestock that saunters along. Visit the sites of Gudda with CNN's Arwa Damon »

It's a simple lifestyle of farming, tending to goats, caring for children and carrying out household chores -- a daily routine that hasn't changed much over the centuries.

That's why light transformed Gudda. Villagers could play music at night. Children could study well past sundown. Watch villagers smile as they light their solar lamps »

As Yamouna Groomis kneads dough for her family's evening meal, she blows through a pipe every once in a while to keep a flame burning in an outdoor clay pit. Her days used to end when the sun went down. She smiles as she proudly flicks on a solar lamp.

About Gudda
• locat1on: Gudda is about 300 miles southwest of Delhi
• Population: About 500 people live in the village
• Work: Most residents are farmers and sheep breeders
• Main crop: Millet
• Other facts: Water is scarce and there is no power except for solar electricity "When I saw this light coming on for the first time, I was very happy," she says.

The light is powered by a solar panel on her roof that charges a battery. Panels can be seen on almost every rooftop in Gudda. See where Gudda is located »

Ram, the man credited with the transformation, doesn't have a high school degree. But he did attend an institution about an hour away called Barefoot College, established 35 years ago with an emphasis on helping India's rural population find solutions for their problems among themselves.

The college, in part funded by the Indian government, trains villagers all over India who have little or no education, giving them a range of skills to change their lives. The entire campus, which has amenities such as a library, meeting halls, open-air theater and labs, uses solar power.

On a recent visit to the main college campus, a group of village women were hard at work making solar cookers, which can boil a liter of water in eight minutes. They are part of the "Women Barefoot Solar Cooker Engineers Society" -- six women who came together and started their own business.

Barefoot College serves an outlying community of 125,000 people. In a nearby village, women flock to a water desalinization and purification plant set up by the college and maintained by Barefoot graduates. The station, powered by solar panels, provides the area with a rare commodity: clean drinking water.

Barefoot College
At the local store in Gudda, owner Ram Swarup puts his solar panels to maximum use. He says the solar lights have allowed him to increase his business by a third. The panels also have powered up the only DVD player and television in the village.

Partly paralyzed by polio, Swarup never dreamed that he would have so much in life. He says it took courage -- and light. The villagers say that they now feel empowered -- less reliant on a far-off government.

Even the village's engineer is amazed. At Ram's house, the solar lamps flicker to life. He smiles as he says that before, he didn't even know what artificial light was, and now, he's a solar power expert.

"I never saw light before," he says. "How could I think that I could bring light here?"

Like most of the Barefoot graduates, he was selected to attend the college by his village elders. Now, every night when the lights flicker on, he says, he feels great.


With the extra earnings he's made as a solar engineer, he's made another of his childhood dreams come true. He purchased his favorite instrument, a harmonium, and now the family can gather around every night and listen to his music.

He says he hopes his daughter, now 14 years old, will follow in his footsteps and become a solar engineer. Ram's 80-year-old mother, meanwhile, beams with pride about her son's accomplishments: "I just wanted him to do something good for the village." E-mail to a friend

In the midst of the pre-elections kerfuffle on this forum, I beg to digress into a non-political issue. There was a time when it was stated that Krio has been banned on this forum. Has that law been repealed? The passage of that law must have occurred during moments of emotional lapses. Banning Krio on a Sierra Leonean forum is as foolhardy as telling Irishmen to forswear Irish in favour of English. While English remains an international medium of communication, it must not be forgotten that the Queen's language is a handover from colonial rule. The language of the oppressor may be useful for international communication, but no self-respecting people will rob themselves in order to enrich the oppressor's heritage. After all, Krio was contrived during moments of sweat, tears and the most insufferable agony of African history--slavery!
British colonial laws once banned African tongues in order to de-Africanize and, in the language of the day, civilize the natives. The brains behind COCORIOKO are so exceptional that the anti-Krio law must have been made during a moment of hilarity made possible by rounds of "Go-Go, Omolay, and Sassman, otherwise known as the "Tiller of the Land." I wonder what Joko-Smart and Eldred Jones will say when told not to speak Krio...? For Eldred Jones in particular, the dark vistas of history will surely make him more emotional than amused.

Fourah Bay College to suspend Grant-in -aid
Culled from Leonenet

According to media report the Fourah Bay college grant-in-aid would be suspended by the college authorities in collaboration with the Central government for several reasons including government’s inability to honour salary payments to staff of the college that have been accumulated over the years. The Standard newspaper writes: “The backlog has created serious burden for the government to carry thus putting the government in a state of predicament. Government, in addition, has to pay millions of Leones to Final year students of the college i n grant-in-aid.”

Finance Ministry To Pay Grant-In-Aid To Students
Posted by on Jul 31, 2007, 13:10



Government in its efforts to fulfill its commitment to students in the various Colleges and Universities would commence payment of student-grant-in-aid at anytime this week. This was disclosed by the government press officer Mr. King in a conversation with this press over the phone yesterday.

Mr. King explained that the Ministry of Finance has prepared the necessary vouchers for payment, and this time around, payment would not be done at the Treasury Department but through the Bank of Sierra Leone. “It is not only student grant-in-aid that will be paid, but other related payment that are due both the students and the college administration.

It would be recalled that in yesterday’s edition of the Standard Times, the paper published that the Central Government, due to several reasons could not pay accumulated student grant-in-aid and arrears due the staff. Among the reasons stated by the paper is the scarcity of funds, government has therefore thought it necessary to offset these arrears at anytime from now before it could be late. “We are going to pay every penny due these people” King concluded. It is however not known, when payment would commence this week.

I would like to apologise for a few things that I have said on this forum:

1. I wrote that if I had been one of Hon. Ernest Bai Koroma’s bodyguards and I had seen an unidentified human object (that later on turned out to be ex-Brigadier Tom Nyuma of the New SLPP) with a revolver in one had and surreptitiously trying to pick the lock of Hon. Ernest Bai Koroma’s hotel room with the other - in the dead of night - that I'd shoot him down. I want to clarify that by shooting down, I would not shoot to kill, and I should have said, that I’d stop him – by which I mean that I would not shot to kill then either. It so happens that there are some situations in which it is best to” Shoot first and ask questions later”. Tom Nyuma is after all one of my dear country men and why should I shoot to kill him or anyone else for that matter?

2. I also want to apologise and clarify what I said in reaction to what’s at the top of the APC manifesto – with these words attributed to president Kabbah: ” I prefer to die now, than to lose the elections to APC” Well, it’s a manner of speaking and what president Kabbah is expressing here, is the profound importance to him - of the SLPP winning the election- I should think because if Vice- President Solomon Berewa is running on the ticket of CONTINUITY, then the election is in effect a referendum or ratification on the achievements of Mr. Kabbah’s ten years in office , as president of Sierra Leone. He of course does not mean it literarily – I should think that he would still choose life over death even if Charles Margai or Ernest Bai Koroma wins the election. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the unlikely possibility of a Beoku-Betts type of Commission of Inquiry into the affairs/ misdeeds of high ranking members of government who are accused of such misdeeds - and the possibility of witch hunts by a democratically elected APC is a very remote on one condition: An independent Judiciary would guarantee that – just as an independent judiciary would ensure that those who are accused of corruption will be brought to Justice, through a fair trial.

http://apcparty.org/

Finally, I think I have been a little more personal than usual in reacting to Lans Gberie's take on Charles Margai and Ernest Bai Koroma’s parties, in that his article about Violence and the Sierra Leone elections. The article was published AFTER the unconfirmed assassination attempts on both Charles Margai and Hon. Ernest Bai Koroma, and he doesn’t even mention these two terrible incidents. First of all I didn’t much appreciate the way that he downgrades and ridicules his brother Hon. Charles Francis Margai. And the terrible onus he puts on Ernest Bai Koroma, - after misrepresenting him. (I have already explained that) The only criticism levied against the SLPP government is not even one of inertia but paralysis - in dealing with violence - and here he is talking about towards the opposition and not towards SLPP thugs and hoodlums He would like the world to believe that the SLPP is like Satyagraha’s Mahatma Gandhi and that the APC and the PMDC is violent. NOT true. As I have explained before. The article was too one-sided for even the SLPP partisan that he so strongly shows himself to be and he should also realise that some of the discontent – can and does translate into votes that some of the discontented people will cast in favour of the opposition.

I’m not apologising about the mood I am in – when I am sometimes almost overwhelmed with sadness, when I look at some of the trouble spots in our world.
We should all try to do something to make it (the world) a better place to live in – and we should renounce violence as a means of solving our political differences in Sierra Leone.

A free and fair election – and graceful losers, will guarantee peace and stability. Remember that president BUSH won his first election by a narrow margin of 537 votes, remember that Al Gore - lost his home state of Tennessee – which is not exactly his ethnic stronghold, so to speak and Al Gore accepted defeat gracefully, after the Supreme Court had settled the matter in one of the most important cases (about interpreting the Constitution etc) that the Supreme Court has faced, in our lifetime. I followed the proceedings and read all the transcr1pts.

N.B Al Gore who was vice president to Bill Clinton of the ousted Democratic Party did not call in the army etc.... (Smile)

Brother James,

Thanks for a compliment. I have strong trust in people like Alhaji Momodou Koroma, vice president Solomon Berewa’s running mate. He is moderate in tone and action and I should think that he is also deliberate in judgement. Mr. Berewa has obviously chosen him because of this and other outstanding qualities, and we had better leave politics to the politicians and art, and music to the artists and Allen polite told me that all Africans are poets.

I agree with him.

I feel that I’m addressing my erstwhile Sierra Leonean best friend James Braithwaite – also a good friend of the professor Cecil Blake group. James - a maths genius - and I were classmates for seven years.

Yes, James, we all have that innate quality – but lack of knowledge or insufficient soul searching can make us erroneously want to believe e that we can bypass apologising to other human beings made in God’s image that we have offend , and go straight to the Almighty Himself and ask for forgiveness. I know that in both Judaism and in Islam that is not he way. We must first apologise to those we have offended or (Lashon Hara) vilified unjustly, and then we ask the Almighty for forgiveness.

Jesus the Jew taught this to his followers who were all Jews – Cornelius (the Roman Centurion) being the first non- Jew to be admitted to his group that he taught this prayer that all Christians know so well:

” And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

For the trespasses against the Holy One blessed Is He, we approach Him directly and ask for forgiveness. Because , only He can forgive - and as I read in this past week’s Torah portion, ( Parashat Va’escahanan/ Deuteronomy3.23 to 4: 2) with reference to “ Your greatness and Your strong hand “ - my Stone Chumash Notes read:
“These are references to God’s boundless mercy and willingness to forgive sinners, to the “right hand” that is open to those who repent and is so strong that it suppresses the attribute of Judgement ( Rashi; Mirzrachi)

Among Roman Catholics, through a priest at the Confessional – the formalisation of the process, through an intermediary - and in Islam there is also something called Tawassul.

Politics – and the polarisation caused by politics complicates things to an extraordinary degree.

Here is an example of someone - also in a manner of speaking - being politically polemic for effect and saying that someone else doesn’t worship the Almighty – (in his own way) but worships the bomb:

I don’t know any Iranian who worships a bomb

You are also a good James but you are certainly not that James. I'm fully aware of that and I would not mistake him for you or anyone else. – I told you that James and I were classmates and James was also a guitarist in our band the Cacademics at FBC along with Seray-Wurie, Gipu Felix-George, David Allen, Claudius (Dayo) Thomas. His brother Julian was lead guitarist in the Golden Strings – in which Cecil Blake was vocalist….

I'll tell you a little more about him: the last time I met James was in the air – accidentally we were travelling in the same plane. He was travelling back from Durham ( North England) where he had been studying maths – I was on my way to Accra, incidentally, there were three maths geniuses in my class - James Braithwaite, Sylvester Young and Neville Jarrett - Neville of course was a genius in everything, not just maths) well the sad story - and I cannot go into all he details that he told me - and that’s how it was in those days – his government scholarship had been terminated at the behest of someone close in his own family - you can imagine the rest........

The only criticism levied against the SLPP government is not even one of inertia but paralysis - in dealing with violence - and here he is talking about towards the opposition and not towards SLPP thugs and hoodlums He would like the world to believe that the SLPP is like Satyagraha’s Mahatma Ghandi and that the APC and the PMDC is violent. NOT true. As I have explained before. The article was too one-sided for even the SLPP partisan that he strongly shows himself to be and he should also realises that some of the discontent – can and does translate into votes that some of the discontented people will cast in favour of the opposition.

I’m not apologising about the mood I am in – when I am sometimes almost overwhelmed with sadness, when I look at some of the trouble spots in our world.
We should all try to do something to make it abetter place to live in – and we should renounce violence as a means of solving our political differences in Sierra Leone.
A free and fair election – and graceful losers, will guarantee peace and stability. Remember that president Clinton won his first election by a narrow margin of 15, 000 votes, remember that Al Gore - lost his home state of Tennessee – which is not exactly his ethnic stronghold, so to speak and Al Gore accepted defeat gracefully, after the Supreme Court had settled the matter in one of the most important cases that the Supreme Court has faced, in our lifetime. I followed the proceedings and read all the transcr1pts.

N.B Al Gore who was vice president to Bill Clinton of the ousted Democratic Party did not call in the army etc.... (Smile)

Rumors are now flying around that Sylvia Blyden has been tapped by Berewa to be the next Minister Of Information and Broadcasting.

If this is true it's no wonder she has been constantly on the backs of the current Ministr of Information and Broadcasting Prof. Septimus Kaikai, calling him all kinds of names including Mumu Minister.

Also, in her article on her website, she levied all kinds of attacks on the SLPP supporters for not speaking out enough. The things that people do to be Minsters in SLPP government!

Can someone please check into this rumor?

Salone launches stock exchange

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the launching of the Sierra Leone Stock Exchange, done by President Tejan Kabbah last Friday, Sierra Leone is now assured of “completeness of the financial system.”
President Kabbah, launching the stock exchange said, “it will enhance a greater measure of conclusiveness by enabling those currently outside the formal financial sector to take advantage of investment opportunities, thereby engendering a wider distribution of national wealth”
The president said the reasons why he attached such importance to the establishment of a stock exchange was that when it would have achieved greater stature over time the country would come to realize its potentials for a transformation of financial infrastructure in the years to come.
President Kabbah urged all Sierra Leoneans to give the maximum support to the new stock exchange.
The minister of finance, John Benjamin, said a robust capital market would not only attract foreign investment, but it would also reduce national reliance on external finance thereby impacting positively on the country’s foreign debts profile and balance of payments in general.
Mr Benjamin pointed out that the stock exchange would provide for low-cost financial intermediation, and would also provide incentives for private sector investments and attraction of funds from nationals living in the Diaspora.
He pledged that his ministry would continue to work with the Bank of Sierra Leone to ensure synchronization of monetary and fiscal policies geared towards the maintenance of stable financial system in support of sustainable growth and development.
The Bank Governor, Dr James D. Rogers, credited President Kabbah for establishing the stock exchange.
He intimated that the bank had structured an environment conducive for the running of a capital market as they had revised the Companies Act, the Securities Bill, the Bankruptcy Bill and the Collective Investment Schemes Bill.
Mr Mohamed Fofanah, the deputy Bank Governor who was also the chairman of the launching, described the stock exchange as “pregnant with possibilities,” and said the Bank would only perform a monitoring function in the stock exchange.
The stock exchange will be housed at the Bank of Sierra Leone.

This is a step in the right direction and one that would benefit the nation in the years ahead just like the establishment of NASSIT,NRA etc.
I think the SLPP should be given a chance and voted in for a historic third term despite some of their failings.The Public Relations office is not doing enough to highlight the sucesses and should do more.

The APC and their leader as the main opposition had the opportunity but failed to hold the Government to account seriously in areas they were not performing but instead were pre-occupied with petty rifts and squabbles.They would be judged in my opinion for treating issues of national interest with levity rather than their past. An opposition party that aims to form the next Government should be focused and not distracted.

The PMDC is a young but vibrant party that has grown rapidly.Hopefully with some seats in parliament they can be judged on their effectiveness as an opposition.

Point of correction sir i am not the trade minister and you dont need to be one to discuss these issues.
Those safeguards have been be taken care of by the new Companies Act as CAP249 was outdated.Whether they would be effective is not a question for me which what you seem to be asking.

We cannot expect this proceess to be 100% perfect because issues like insider dealings,and crashes occur even in the most advanced countries.The Sierra Leone stock exchange like any other would have its listing rules. Those companies who have their shares listed on the stock exchange should be made accountable by the strengthening of Corporate Governance(a system by which companies are directed and controlled) and legislation because it is mainly their activities that will affect their share prices and as a result investors.Enron crashed not as a result of the stock exchange but by reckless Accounting procedures.The 'SOX' act in the USA though controversial was introduced to prevent these lapses in future and i think Sierra Leone would also learn as we progress through this historic Financial success.

Sierra Leone: Solo B Vows to Restructure SLFA

Concord Times (Freetown)

26 July 2007
Posted to the web 26 July 2007

Sahr Morris Jr.
Freetown

If he wins the upcoming election, Presidential hopeful Solomon Berewa says he will restructure and discipline the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA).

The current Vice President said he will accomplish this goal with a bit of funding, adding that he will make sure the national team, Leone Stars become the Stars of West African and even the entire African continent.


"I will ensure Leone stars will become the stars of West Africa, even the whole of Africa," he said, adding that he will not favour the issue of players and sports men who normally escape when they go out to represent the country in international competition.

He said, "This is a problem we will not encourage in our sports because we lose young and talented youth whenever they go out and represent the country in international matches," and added that the country lost players in Finland and athletes in Melbourne, Australia over the years.

Vice president Berewa, however, maintained that his government will encourage competition in Africa, and ensure that he will appoint a sports expert to become a minister in his government, that will identify and solve the problems the country sporting discipline is facing.

He said, "I will appoint someone who is an expert in sports that will be able to seek and identify the problems of sports in the country." However, football stakeholder said this time round if any political party wins this election they will want to see a minister that has passion, love and an interest for the game, which will help take it to greater height.

Quite recently I have been hearing SLPP loyalists talking about Koroma planning to rule like Momoh and Sheka Steven.
There is no dispute that these former presidents should have done better than they did in their respective terms of office. However, Is the government of Kabbah/Berewa better than the previous governments? I need honest answers based on the following factors

1. Government Revenues including international donations, loans and domestic revenues.

2. The building of social and economic infrastructures like education, roads, other public amenities. I dont know much about the early period of the Steven's regime but I am aware of the Momoh and Kabbah government. I can categorically say that the Kabbah's government has received more donations and loans from international donors than the entire period of Sheka/Momoh combine.

3. Now the most important consideration is how these funds were/are spent to benefit the general populace and not just the few.

Only blind supporters of Berewa/Kabba/SLPP will even take time to ponder on your questions...too obvious

1. Government revenue during the Shaki/Momoh years were not large but were largely dependent upon absolute national productivity supported by home-based resources which generated jobs and, hence, supported a relatively higher standard of living. The Kabba/Berewa government has largely thrived on International DONOR monies which will surely dry up soon and then WHAT?
2. Yuwi Building, Siaka Steven Stadium, the Dodo Hydro Project now supplying electricity to Bo and Kenema, paved roads in the provincial capitals, flowing pipe-borne water supply systems, electrical supply in Freetown and provincial cities and the beginning of the Bumbuna Project...These are some of the services that were prevailent in the Siaka/Momoh years.

With all the billions of Dollars/Pounds/Euros that has flown into the country I have yet to know any major landmark development project or artifact attributed to Kabba's SLPP.

3. Can't you guess? They are in private pockets or private banks around the world. Don't hope on any benefit for the populace. It has only been a benefit for a few individuals such as the Principals of schools who were lucky to buy Mercedes Benz cars and marry 2 wives...the legacy of the Kabba government.

The GNI of the average Sierra Leonean has never been any higher than $220 a year- that $0,60 American cents a day or LE 660,000 a year.

You are asking a question that is really interesting. The problem is that it is UNFAIR to compare the performance of Shaki/Momoh under a peaceful reign and the post war governance of Kabba/Berewa. There is going to be differences.
However I would challenge you to one debate that Momoh's government was the worse. On record, inflation increased by 125% the most in Sierra Leone's history. By 1996 when the NPRC handed over to Kabba it had been reveresed to 61%
Why did you exclude the NPRC and the AFRC from your comparison. What government would you use as a benchmark or baseline for measuring best performance.

Sir, I excluded them because it was a military government. At least no public mandate in a form of democracy was done to bring them to power and secondly, I have yet to hear much talk about the NPRC in this election. So I concentrate on the hot topics.

Also, I dont know whether you made a proper research on your statistics, but I do believe there are some descrepancies in it. I cannot delve deep because I am busy right now but I will torch on those descrepancies later. I know one of your arguement may be "the SLPP ended the war". Politically it is correct because if we give blame to the government of the day for anything bad that happens, we should as well give them praise for the good that happens too. However, we we go too deep to Excavate the real deal here which I once talked in this forum, you will start to ask questions whether the SLPP wanted the war to end in good faith or they were forced to accept reality and work with the international community to end the war. That is another whole debate. In any way I appreciate your input because it's too civilized and sensible.

Intestingly I do not and will not ascribe the closure to the conflict as a political victory to the SLPP. The conflict ended whilst the Kabbah was in office. There is a marked difference between the two. The SLPP fanned the dying embers of a war that could have ended at the time they took the reigns of government from the NPRC. On the contrary I hold the SLPP exclusively responsible for the escalation of the war.
Kabbah was supposed to continue talks and concentrate on governance. Instead he outsourced national security to kamajohs and disbanded his army.
The point I am emphasizing is that you cannot compare apples and oranges. Shaki was in power for 12 peaceful years, Momoh was for 5 peaceful years and a year of instability. Kabbah on the other hand was in power for 10 years on instability(which he created by the way-no defense for him.)
Economic activity in those periods under which we might want to make the comparison will not be FAIR. But then if we are to ignore the instability we should bring in the NPRC and AFRC. After all the NPRC was in power for 5 years. As much as they were an unconstitutional regime they recorded accomplishments, and so was the AFRC.
I am not sure why you think I did not research my facts. I have the figures and sources. What is difficult to lay hands on is economic data on the AFRC and the current SLPP.

HELP ME; I AM TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE POINT MED IS TRYING TO PUT ACROSS BUT IT REMAINS INCOMPREHENSIBLE. CAN YOU HELP?

I think you guys are talking almost the same thing here. It is just a matter of semantics. I believe MED is trying to say that it is unfair to compare a democratically elected government and undeomocractic one. If the comparison is valid, which I believe is, then the Democratically elected government loose because they are given the mandate by the people and expected to perform more than it is. The APC was semi unconstitutional and was not expected to do much from them, but looking back after ten years of democractic rule by the SLPP, one may have a valid point to make comparison, especially when the SLPP is trying to compare their rule with the APC's. I believe you are also trying to say the samething in different ways.

keke blahima; its not only UNFAIR, but an absolutely humiliating disappointment that the performances of a democratically elected government can be compared with unconstitutionally, undemocratic regimes over 17 years ago, you are right. The second point, please don’t ever try to interpreter a phrase out of a statement,it dose not help your readers, its absolutely unprofessional, this again openly expresses the loyalty of the media houses that propagates such expressions out of context, making it an issue. The seating VP has often said that his administration would be a continuation of Kabba’s, an administration that media reports have characterized by corruption, misuse of government properties, misappropriation of donor funding, muzzling ACC and the press, intimidation, arrests and undue police and judiciary influences, be a man enough to prove these allegations wrong, on the other hand how would you then interpreter such statement.

Therefore, Earnest’s phrase in succeeding the leaderships of Shaki and Momoh, dose not suffice to say that he would do what these guys did, as a matter of fact the prevailing circumstances differ greatly, we are talking about a constitutionally democratic governance, above all this is 2007, wakeup.

The position of SLPP in present Salone politics is pathetically weak, they have lost grip of the leadership hold, they had an opportunity, they had the international support, they had the national support, which cuts across regions and ethnicities. It was obvious that certain regions in SL were a no go area for other parties rather than SLPP supporters, a reasonable mind would ask, why the sudden dissuasion, the simple answer would be ‘they lost grip of their hold’, feel free to interpreter.

Finally, the fact that one is obliged to compare a constitutionally democratic government with former regimes seemingly characterized by undemocratic principles and unconstitutional governance raises a serious, serious concern, simply because such evaluations automatically brings the competing parties on the same footing, it’s pathetically UNFAIR that such comparisons could be made, any reasonable mind would logically assume that SLPP administration largely reflects the tenets of these unconstitutional regimes, it would be worth noting that such comparison incalculably disadvantages the SLPP administration, taking into account the prevailing circumstances then and now, it is obvious that the only democratically elated government amongst the lot, which is the Kabba SLPP administration should be the worst government ever, an evaluation that includes the weak performances of the parliamentary representatives of all parties, these views stand to be challenged.

I DID NOT UNDERSTAND YOUR POINT HERE. I a not defending the SLPP either, I am simply trying to solidify the ungoing debate on a good footing. You veered off the subject matter and lost me. the issue was " Shaki/Momoh versus Kabbah/Berewa.
To all intent and purpose my contention has been grounded in comparing apples to apples not apples to oranges. I think it would be fair to compare Milton Margai and Shaki.

Keke Blahima believes you are trying to make a strong point but it is not quite clear to me. Unlike yours readers can understand my position very clearly. I am looking at the relevance of the subject and arguing on the strength of numbers.
My point again is that it is unfair to compare a government recovering from a post war economy to a governement that reigned under peaceful times. Yet if anarguement is to be made, it shuold be based on numbers not long essays. Numbers speak volumes. I WOULD URGE MED TO BE MORE CLEAR.

I am not Sinai the poet. I also think you failed to comprehend my point. My point remains clear. The best way to solicit a balanced assessment of Shaki/Momoh and Kabbah/Berewa is to include NPRC and AFRC. Shaki/Momoh governance is going to be worse when you factor in the civil war that crippled the nation owing to APC mismanagement. To prove me right start by comparing Shaki and Momoh. It was a down hill run.

Privatization of public services has led to increased poverty in many developing countries. With increasing evidence of the damage caused by such privatizations, developing country governments continue to come under INTENSE pressure to commit their public services to privatization , THIS IS OFTEN A CONDITION OF RECEIVING DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE, LOANS OR DEBT RELIEF FROM INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS AND DONOR GOVERNMENTS !

There is no doubt that public services in developing countries are in need of reforms. While the public sector often manages to supply quality services to millions of people under the most difficult circumstances, all too often the most powerful sections of society have captured the services for their own benefit. Poorer communities are thus excluded and forced to seek services from private providers at cost that often far exceed those charged by the public sector. Theories which suggested that increased private provision of public services will solve these problems have been exposed as fallacious.Evidence from developing countries countries shows that privatization of public services exercerbates the problems faced by THE POOR AND THREATENS TO DRIVE THEM DEEPER INTO POVERTY, IN OTHER WORDS, PRIVATIZATION HAS FAILED THE POOR.
THE SIMPLE EXPLAINATION FOR THIS PHENOMENON IS THAT PRIVATE COMPANIES ARE CALLED UPON TO RESPOND FIRST AND FOREMOST TO CONSIDERATIONS OF PROFIT MAXIMIZATION, AND THIS INEVITABLY CONFLICTS WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF PUBLIC SERVICES.

I beg to differ on your position regarding Ernest Koroma's leadership. Except if leadership has been redefined Koroma is not the kind of leader to count on. Here is why.
Sometimes you build respect on a blind faith. I has such respect for Koroma until he recently claimed that he was going to govern in the spirit of his predecessors; Siaka Stevens and Momoh.
I wish there was room for this economic analysis but Momoh's economic model is by far the worse yet. Siaka Stevens handed over a devastating economy to a soldier who had no economic or academic bearing.
It would surpise you to note that if we were to interprete and analyze the economic perfoamance of all the governments since independence Momoh's was the worst followed by that of post OAU of Siaka Stevens. Infact Sierra Leone's economy was destroyed by the expenses incurred for the OAU conference in 1980.
The last time Consumer Product Index (CPI) stabilized was under the NPRC. If you were to conduct a fair comparative analysis, the economic performance of a governement under war cannot be measured to a government operating under a stable conditions. NPRC, Kabbah AFRC are excusable, BUT you will be suprised at the results. Wanna try it...remember Bill Clinton...it the economy

And I want to tell KABS KANU that I did not intend to do harm to this forum at all because it's a good forum for all Sierra Leoneans, but I just trying to tell Alieu Sesay that he may not know what he is talking about or may too over boasteous in his claim that KABS KANU cannot block his IP. In doing that I need deconstruct forbidden keywords like $HA$CK$ERS. When you remove the $ you will get the real word. This word has now been a blocked in this forum and I appreciate KABS KANU's effort to prevent bad/jealous guys from making trouble in the forum that will affect everyone.
NOW TO MY POINTS.

Alieu, It all serves the same purpose. When you broke into someone's computer, network or website illegally, that is <$!ha$ck$ing$>. Their are two or more ways to do so especially in respect to website. "String Attacks" or retrieving someone's password illegally either by guessing or other means. So I dont know what is your arguement and besides even though this forum many not have the security to absolutely prevent $ha!ck$ers from intrusion, it's not an easy process like the way you are talking. For someone who does not know much, you may want him to believe that it is a cake work.

SIERRA LEONE SLPP LEGACY. HAND OUTS AND POVERTY
Ladies and Gentlemen, lets cuts the Blaming .Nobody was banned because they are SLPP.If you continue to post, postings that are indecent or contrary to the rules of the forum, we have no choice but to Ban that individual to protect the integrity of the Forum. If you feel this was done unjustifiably, please forward those postings to me personally. I will see to it that the rules are followed. In the absence of substantiating these allegations, you do not have the right to insinuating bunch of horse shit like this. As the Board Chairman, I DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO VIOLATE THE RULES OF THE FORUM. Many times I have been subjective to these same rules between us as Board Members. You are also reminded that it our obligation to protect you right as a lawful participant.

We need everyone participation and input to move Sierra Leone Forward. Therefore, it is not in our interest to encourage such practices. Also, we do give equal amount of courage to all front running political organizations. It is rather unfortunate that everyone is ganging on the the SLPP. It is my opinion that, they need to defend their record why they be given a single day to run the affairs of Sierra Leone after August 11th 2007.This a reasonable request.

Moreover, where are the infrastructural Achievements of SLPP the last 10 years? Ending the war is not one of them because it was a necessity for SLPP operatives.

The Powers to be, inflicted and achieved maximum damage and control of Sierra Leone .At that point, the International community stepped in to install safety valves to ensure they stay in compliance before any additional handouts are completed. We are fully aware of all the tricks purpetrated by the Jona/Kabba Advisory Council under NPRC and look what we got after 10 long years.150,000 people dead ,the largest amputee in the world, the darkest city in the world ,soon ans so forth.

Consider the life of Sierra Leone as a beggar leaving in the street of New York and Big cities Worldwide. That is not a very good picture to paint. You have no future or no planning because you are not in control of your life. This IS what the SLPP has reduced Sierra Leone to become.

Don’t tell me the APC started this or cannot show any developments because this SLPP Government got enormous boost and debt relief’s to Jumpstart the economy to move the country from handouts to self-sufficiency. What did they do? Built Mansions with SLPP insignia on the zincs, Buy luxurious homes for their concubines worldwide. You know who we are talking about .May the almighty have mercy on us for deceiving the poor people of Sierra Leone. Sierra Leoneans don't need educated elites like John Leigh, James Jona, Tejan Kabba and outgoing vice president Berewa. As a matter of fact ,we do not need these elites from either sides of the political aisle. They have eroded our cridibility as Educated Custodian of sierra leone especially the recycled politicians and polical appointees who have failed us.Jona Under Secretary of the UN and Special envoy to Liberia and Kabba almost became a UN secretary General.

We need a Patriotic Leader who can devote himself or herself selflessly to achieve maximum Footings for very strong foundations in the years to come. I am not talking of building MAKE-belief Market place, schools and temporary developments. How about raising the minimum wage to above poverty level. Every working sierra Leone deserve to buy a bag of rice, pay his or rent, and take care of his or her adult responsibilities without jumping through hoops. These are basic necessities. How about a government that will present opportunities for anyone to work his way up the ladder like that of Ernest Bai Koroma.

The S.L.P.P has demonstrated that they can only serve the elites and rest of us can suck it up day in and day out. The message is loud and clear .Though we were not were not born with silver spoons in our mouth but definitely have the stamina to Continue advocating for a leader that belief that in 36 months Sierra Leone will turn most of its negatives around.

To conclude, his Honorable Front Runner (Ernest Bai Koroma) has pledged his support that there will not be any Sacred Lamb after August 11th 2007. If you think you are a sacred Lamb /Cow stay in the wilderness but certainly not in sierra leone. The rule of Law will be the cornerstone for a prosperous and self sufficient Sierra Leone.

Allah wak- Barr .God Bless Sierra Leone and all who seek fairness and justice for a better sierra leone.

Sierra Leone Postal Services Workers Go Eight Months Without Salaries
Posted by Santigie Kamara on Jul 28, 2007, 01:36



Workers of the Sierra Leone Postal Services are currently enduring serious financial difficulties to perform their official duties effectively.

According to reports, the workers have gone for eight months now without receiving their salaries. “How can we work when we are not paid for eight months now” questioned one staff who pointed out that the government is not serious about their plights.

Another report also states that work at the parastatal has been in a snail pace as most of the workers have down tools for work until management addresses their situation.

According to the head of the National Commission for Privatization (NCP), Mr. A.R. Turay has maintained that the money generated by the Sierra Leone Postal Services is being used to pay the NCP workers and to run the institution.

However, most of the Salpost workers have expressed dissatisfaction over the way and manner their human rights to work have been violated by the management and the NCP. They have called on the management to intervene.

That is why the populace now have the chance to vote them out...Wutehteh

We applied and were accepted to participate.
We were ushered into a room, where the supervisor greeted us and told us, “it’s gonna be sweaty. You are welcome to do it however you like but as you know, most people like to take their clothes off. You are welcome to take off your clothes if that is the way you like to do it.
At exact nine she told us to start. We started licking. The lady who was doing it with me was about five foot-nine to six feet, 135lbs, long curly hair with nice boobs. We were licking it. It got hot and sweaty, she took off her clothes, threw them on the chair beside the table. I took mine off and threw them off as well. It got sweatier, we were just licking it, just licking it!
The supervisor returned to the room and asked are you having fun, the place was quiet. We were just licking it. She said to us, ladies and gentlemen, I am sorry we have to end it now. I have been told that we are out of envelops.
Brother Chez, I am at school now but will respond to you before the day is over. That is if the forum is still usable.

With our meagre resources we have been trying to set up projects that can bring income to the areas we operate in. has Ernest been engaged in such activities to improve the local economies of areas more depraved? if so, can you guys name me the projects Ernest or margai have created and in operation?

In Reply to: Re: SLPP-Handle ANSWER THE QUESTION posted by alieu sesay on July 29, 2007 at 21:34:03:

"According to you, "Brakes" used by FACTS in his context was different from "STOP" that i used in my reply to him."

Your problem remains the same: You never understand anything you read. Because of that, you assume blissfully and densely that what you are saying makes sense. It does not.

Here is the latest proof:

You wrote: "So what is STOP to you. What does it mean in your Dictionary? EHN?"

Once you understand (if that is possible) that putting the brakes on does not NECESSARILY mean putting a stop, you may understand the nonsense underlying your typically dense statement: 'According to you, "Brakes" used by FACTS in his context was different from "STOP" that i used in my reply to him.'

You see, DUMB man, if braking means stopping -- as you claim with the confidence that comes only from abysmal ignorance -- why then would there be the common expression: Braking to a stop?

Had you been capable of understanding English, you would deduce from that expression the very obvious fact (except to you, of course), that you can apply brakes without NECESSARILY stopping. Just ask anyone who drives a car (I am assuming, of course, that you know what a car is).

It is long past the time for you to finally take the advice that many people have given you on this forum: Go back to Form One and try to work your way up to taking your GCE O Level English exam again.

Unless and until you do that, you would continue to prove, every time you write, why you need to try to finally pass GCE O Level English.

SLPP is hiding his ignorance under a dead weed- means i see it/him from afar.
He needs more than a day's research to clear his name on this issue.
Your initial response to me was: That FACTS did not say STOP but BRAKES and that BRAKES is different from STOP in the context that it was used.
You went as far as saying that he/you mearnt DISAVOW.

My question to you was and still is: What is the difference between STOP and BRAKES?

Until you can clearly tell me the difference, you have lost the little respect i had for you had on this forum.

You can go on and use different MONIKERS to adress issues i will not backdown.
