BIG LIES! No proposed friendly match for Leone Stars in Liberia

E-mail Print PDF

Sources from Monrovia, the Liberian capital has intimated that contrary to claims from Freetown, the Liberia Football Association (LFA) has revealed that there was no proposed plan for a friendly match between Leone Stars and Lone Star in Liberia.This was confirmed from the Liberia Football Association’s website, 'Liberian Soccer.com'which did not indicate any form of invitation to the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA).

It could be recalled that there had been a series of reports in the newspapers in Sierra Leone that the LFA had earlier invited the senior national team Leone Stars to meet Lone Star in a friendly match slated for 14th August, 2011.

 

 

The Public Relations Officer of the SLFA, Sorie Ibrahim Sesay had even made the claim that the LFA had not only invited Leone Stars to face Lone Star in an international friendly, but that they had also agreed to foot all expenses including transportation, feeding and accommodation.

“We're ready to take this opportunity with all seriousness as we prepare for Egypt,” Mr. Sesay had boasted. But it has all been revealed as beng a lie as Liberia Soccer.com exposes the incredible lies perpetuated by SLFA and its clandestine movement.

As a matter of fact, August 14th, the proposed date for the alleged frendly match  was not even on a FIFA calendar as erroneously stated. It has also been revealed that all the invited foreign based players, who were said to have agreed to honour the match refused the invitation to play their domestic leagues in their respective clubs. Further to butress the lies perpetuated by some SLFA officials, Lone Star had a friendly encounter on Wednesday, 10th August with their fellow 1996 African Nation's Cup debutants, Angola's' Palancas Negras which resulted in a tough 0-0 draw at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Stadium in the Liberian capital Monrovia.

One wonders how Lone Star can play Leone Stars in the same week after an exhaustive encounter? And to add more lies to the one already been perpetuated, SLFA shamefully announced that LFA has sent a disappointing report to Freetown, saying that the proposed match would no longer hold because their home sponsors who were supposed to support the match have disappointed them. These were all fabricated lies and made up stories.

But the one millon dollar question on the lips of everyone is: Now that the match is concealed, why can't the SLFA organize their own friendly matches to prepare the team ahead of the Egypt encounter?'  The answer might not be far from the fact that no executive member of SLFA is ready to answer this question because there are no good plans to get the team in readiness. “SLFA”s hidden agenda, it seems, is to embezzle funds, with no accountability.

…Back To Kailahun and The Irony of The Legendary Court ‘Barray’

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.

With this in mind, when I was called upon by the organizers of a recent programme facilitated by the President Koroma APC-led government through Paramount Chief Al-Amin Kanneh of Baoma Koya chiefdom and Ahmed Sesay –Secretary General of ECOPOD to provide levels of assistance to surviving families of late victims killed in a gruesome road accident along the Kenema-Kailahun road, I was eager to accompany them so as to gauge the changing political dynamics.

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.
