Another International Media Conspiracy... Dr. Kadie Sesay Exposes SLPP’s Penchant to Use Deception as Political Tool

The opposition SLPP once again exposes its flair to use untruths and deception as a political weapon against the ruling APC government in a recent article written by its presidential running mate Dr. Kadie Sesay for the feminist Ms Magazine (www.msmagazine.com) and republished in the SLPP’s thenewpeople online newspaper (www.thenewpeopleonline.com) today. The article is considered by right thinking Sierra Leoneans as another episode of the opposition SLPP’s calumny of an international media conspiracy to wither the international credibility of the APC and its acceptance as a government inclined to upholding the tenets of democratic principles in the estimation of Sierra Leoneans in the Diaspora.

SLPP Admits They Could Have Lost Bye-Election Had It Not Been For Violence...

The opposition SLPP has admitted the party could not have won the just concluded local council bye-election in Ward 369 had it not been for the violence perpetuated by them and their deliberate disenfranchising of several hundreds of APC supporters who had turned out to vote.

Sierra Leoneans would recall the electoral malpractice that was perpetrated by then ruling Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) in Kailahun Court ‘Barray’ during the 2007 Presidential run-off election which warranted the National Electoral Commission (NEC) to cancel the results in addition to other places where vote rigging was proved beyond all reasonable doubt.

SALONE IS TOO SMALL FOR TRIBALISM

When issues of racism, nepotism or tribalism are unveiled in a public forum, it is a serious and grave cause for concern. The requirements of peaceful co-existence mandate that we should find strength in our diversity and that our communities must benefit from the variety of inputs and the myriad of backgrounds and socializations that imbues that diversity. However, a diverse and culturally self-assured organization does not happen by chance. It is the result of a willful effort by its membership to create a conducive environment so that their engagements at all levels combine to build that atmosphere of equality, openness and transparency. Such an open and fluid interaction amongst people of different backgrounds augurs well for the process of change and dynamism which makes for organically growing organizations.
