As APC Heads for Victory in 2012; SLPP in Crying Mood!

E-mail Print PDF

In the pond, out of the pond. The opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) since they lost the 2007 Presidential and Parliamentary elections have woefully resorted to shedding tears unnecessarily on issues of insignificance.
Walk-outs from Parliamentary sittings are so synonymous with the SLPP that an observer may have missed the number of times they have engaged in this political gimmick to win sympathy from compatriots.

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.

Critics Should Take Solace as APC’s Development Projects Are for the Common Good of All…Development they say, always come at a price

E-mail Print PDF

We Yone for countless times have been sensitizing the wider populace on the Agenda for Change programmes of APC government since its formation in 2007.
A study of the socio-economic spheres of the state of Sierra Leone indicate massive lack of the basics for national transformation.
This is a clear justification, that to re-rail the affairs of the country for eventual progress in the next half century of independence, sacrifices must go hand in hand with ongoing infrastructural, energy and even agricultural activities.

…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.
