When Visitors Abuse Our Hospitality!!

E-mail Print PDF

Some news reports in the international media are proving to be much more damaging to our country’s image than even certain aspects of the recent civil war. At least during the war years, there were genuine concerns for our citizenry as the nation declined into lawlessness and chaos. The wanton brutality including the amputation of limbs, rape, child soldiers and unnecessary loss of life that were consequences of a greedy battle for supremacy and control over the Country’s natural resources aroused international concern and sympathy.

PRESS RELEASE: A.P.C ASIA BRANCH 25TH OCTOBER, 2011

E-mail Print PDF

 

For a very long time, a large number of sierra Leonean citizens residing in Asia whose political ideologies are similar to those of the all peoples congress party have been unable to translate them into reality and as a result, the Asia continent has been lying politically dormant for the past decades without the existence of an APC branch capable of contributing to and supporting the political activities of the party back home. Consequently, a branch has been established and is sending this press release out. Read full Press Release…

DESTROYING THE CHANGING IMAGE OF OUR COUNTRY AT “LEH WE TALK”?

E-mail Print PDF

 In July this year, I whisked through Facebook to explore the activities of newly established groups by Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad. However, before this move, I was on a peaceful Sunday while chatting to colleagues taken aback when I noticed a very disturbing conversation that bothers the temporal shut down of our Bumbuna Hydro dam due to certain debt owed by few government agencies. The thread was from a group called “LEH WE TALK” (LWT) and the main post was carried by a Sierra Leonean living here in Australia. What sincerely provoked my concern was the acrimonious dramatization of the issue, describing the whole hydro project as wishy-washy, jubilantly arguing that it is down for good. Others argue that people should start using “KAMBOS” (fire emission from a fuelled bottle with wick) while this Sierra Leonean living in Australia preached to those in the diaspora not to even think of returning home because all is dead.

…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.

Brining Kono into Sierra Leone’s Political Center Stage

The 2007 Presidential and Parliamentary elections witnessed a dramatic twist in Sierra Leone political set-up with the removal from power of a ruling party by an opposition party. Berewa’s chances of winning those elections were slim, taking into account the manner in which he was catapulted into the SLP leadership in Makeni.

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.
