Sierra Leoneans Concerned over FAKE SOJA
By Editorial
Jan 11, 2008, 17:30 Email this article

IS PALOR A FAKE SOJA?

Somebody must tell them !

Some functionaries of the Ernest Bai Koroma civilian administration have been behaving like the nation is back to the NPRC or AFRC Combat Military Junta times.


Palor Conteh, the Lawyer in London

They donít seem to understand the regime change was not a forceful coup díetat but merely a democratic change of civilian Government. There was no Coup in Sierra Leone and the impressions these errant functionaries are imparting to the general public send the wrong signals. Their acts are outright intolerable and somebody must tell them so!

In todayís edition, is a report on such behaviour by the civilian Defence Minister, Retired Major Palor Conteh whose recent predilection for wearing military outfits especially his latent display of love for junta days with the donning of full military combat fatigues, is becoming quite worrisome to members of the public who have since removed the spectre of war from their minds thanks to the former civilian regimeís efforts to bring peace and consolidate it nationwide.

Civilian Defence Ministers wearing full military combat is unconscionable! Worse still, Palor Contehís rank as at the time of him being cashiered from the military was that of a humble Major. So except he has promoted himself above the rest of his former colleagues who are of a far more senior rank now, he lacks the authority to give military orders to officers manning more senior ranks.

It must also be stated that his position as Defence Minister bestows on him only the right to formulate and implement POLICIES and not give military orders.

No other non-military person other than the President has the authority to don on full military uniforms, and the President enjoys this right only because he is by the constitution, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Sierra Leone.

The late Siaka Stevens and Joseph Saidu Momoh did sometimes don on military clothes but that was on rare ceremonial situations. This was not because they were the substantive Defence Ministers but because their office as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Sierra Leone granted them the fiat to do so. And nowhere in recent memory has any President donned on full combat military fatigues during peace times but here is Palor Conteh donning combat fatigues to go to entertainment spots in the capital city.

Sierra Leone is not at war. So, why is Palor Conteh jumping around like a jack rabbit in full military gear with a red military beret in his hand? Does Palor Conteh know something the rest of Sierra Leone does not know?


Palor Conteh:exhibiting his latent admiration for NPRC/AFRC Junta Style Rule as if APC executed a Coup rather than a civilian chang of Gov"t


The former holders of the deputy defence ministerís office, Joe Blell and the now deceased Chief Sam Hinga Norman did not ever don on military gad and move around civilians in the capital city during times of peace. Even if the current minister is the first for close to four decades who has been made the substantive minister of that most sensitive of ministries, that does not give him the right to be donning on combat military uniforms except he has in mind to usurp the Presidentís role as Commander-in-Chief. We hope not!

Remove the combat fatigues Mr. Civilian Minister! You ought to know better now you are a trained, fully qualified lawyer.

Musa, all right thinking people will agree that Parlo Conteh as minister of defence has on right to wear a military uniform. Military uniforms are only for people in active service, Parlo is on more in our armed forces but since he is now serving the APC administration(that is made of people who do not know the difference between right and wrong),I am not surprised to hear that he(Parlo) wears military uniform.
Musa, do not expect much from Parlo(regardless of the fact that he studied law). Don't forget that he is a direct descendant of ex-president Momoh. I am sure you know what that means.
I assure my people of Sierra Leone that they will never see things done right under the APC rule because the APC is not committed to acting right.
At the end of the APC'S five year rule, the people of our country will see that they made a very big mistake by authorizing the APC to run our beloved Sierra Leone.

Fatigues?... Fashion Statement or big deal!.....

Just because Parlor Conteh is one hundred percent soldier,I think that he has the right as an ex serviceman to don military fatigues whenever he fells like it......

Of course Alie Bangurah,Julius Spencer and others were civilian Ministers, but they were seen donning fatigues and carrying weapons during the reign of SLPP government..who cared?


Considering that Palor was successful in his mission to quell the disturbances in Kono,I personally think that the Man in the clothes should concern people more than the clothes he has on his back....

No, he is a civilian minister. Even the president of the United States, though commander in chief, does not go to his troops in combat attire. He may done his CIC

IN OTHER FOR DEMOCRACY TO PREVAIL WHATEVER GOVERNMENT IN POWER SHOULD ALLOW ALL VOICES TO BE HEARD. WHETHER IT BE THOSE PRAISING IT, THOSE CONDEMING IT, THOSE CONTRIBUTING. WE NEED ALL THE DIFFERENT FLAVORS IN A DEMOCRACY. FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS WHAT EVERY DEMOCRACY STANDS ON. FREEDOM OF THE PEOPLE. THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS TAKIGN AWAY PEOPLES FREEDOMM IS THE SURPRESSING OF THEIR RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH. I ASK THOSE IN BOTH PARTIES AS SIERRA LEOANEANS WE MUST LEARN TO DISAGREE IN THE INTERESTS OF OUR COUNTRY. ITS ALWAYS GONNA BE A PARTY IN POWER TRYIGN TO SPREAD ITS PROPAGANDA AND THOSE OTU TRYIGN TO SPREAD TRUE AND FALSE STORIES. APC HAS ALWAYS BEEN GOOD TO SPREAD GOOD AND FALSE STORIES WHEN IN POWER. THEY HAVE BEEN BETTER COMMUNICATORS. SLPP BECAUSE OF ITS COMPLACENT ATTITUDE NEVER DID A GOOD JOB AT IT. OR MAYBE PEOPLE JUST GOT TIRED OF ONE PARTY. I PREFER A COUNTRY WHERE ONE PARTY DOES NTO MONOPOLIZE. ELECTIONS ARE MEANT TO BE REPORT CARDS AFTER WHICH LIFE GOES ON. I ASK THAT THE MODERATES IN BOTH PARTIES TRY TO TAKE THE STAGE. DONT LET THE EXTREME IN EITHER PARTY TAKE HOLD. A GREAT POLITICAL LEADER GOVERNS ALL HIS PEOPLE AND THROWS BONES NOW AND THEN TO THOSE THAT HELP HIM GOT ELECTED THE EXTREMES THAT PUT THEIR SWEAT AND BLOOD. AT THE SAME TIME HE OR SHE DOES NOT FORGET THAT HE OR SHE SI PRESIDENT OF THE WHOLE COUNTRY. AS WE ADVICE OUR LEADERS THOSE OF US CLOSE TO THEM SPEAK THE TRUTH SPEAK YOUR MIND. DONT JUST TELL THEM WHAT YOU WANT THEM TO HEAR SO THAT YOU CAN KEEP COMIGN OVER HIS HOUSE TO ENJOY HIS AIR CONDITION. OR DOTN JUST FOLLOW HIM WHERE EVER HE OR SHE GOES LIKE IN "BAT MAN"

Reports reaching me that Allieu Sesay, a seasoned economist, has been appointed Director General of NRA! Bravo!!! One thing to note! His appointment is merit based since he took first at the interviews. So, it doesnt matter whether it was politically motivated. I know him personally. He supervised me in my under graduate programme and those who know him would attest to the fact that he is a guy of substance. Congrats Allieu!!

Based on merit, Allieu is the best appointment so far. He will sail during the confirmation hearings.

Kabs, what is this big noise about banning IPs? I can challenge you on banning IPs for thousand times and thousand times I will break them. This is not a challenge anyways.

All you need is to upgrade the standards on this forum. You have far too encouraged so many on-called for discussions on this forum, some which are your handiworks and in some of which you actively took part.

Self discipline is a key word here. Discipline yourself, before expecting others to do likewise. Clean your dirty linien before asking others to do the same.

You have encouraged malicious forum discusssions (and initiated some) that were directly aimed at some individuals in our society.Other forumites were never silent about your neglect-You refused to act. Instead blame them further.

Is this because , this particular piece is directed against you that you want to act? This is biased and unfair to all those people you allowed on your forum to be maligned and abused. After all you decleared the forum a free place to talk!

Please on a very friendly note, I respect your forum, but please keep it tight.

This is an unfair, scurrilous and dastardly swipe at Kabs. He has every right to stop those who wallow in childish and nuisance behaviour on the forum.

If people have scores to settle, they should spare us the grief of having to see it all the time on the forum. Kabs' warning to Mohm was a fair one. He didn't ban him. He just told him not to smear the name of someone who had never posted on the forum in his name.

By the way, how many times have people gratuitously abused Kabs on the forum? Most of the personal attacks on Kabs are by people with a political ax to grind. 9 out of 10 times he usually turns the other cheek. That however is not a license to cheek him.

Some of us who are appreciative of his effort to provide us with a home to sound our opinions about our country will set the record straight, and take exception to any unnnecessary fit-tie.
So nor mix the man pa u kalo kalo.

I WILL JUST DELETE the nonsense.People should grow up and leave grudges alone.We don't care what has happened between people in other forums. They cannot use this forum to settle scores.

It is witchcraft to hold steadfastly on to grudge like this. At the very Leonenet, did I not have bitter clashes once with people like PK, Stokes, Kathos, Toegondo, Marda, AKB, Oswald Hanciles, Deensie etc ? What about Allieu Iscandri on the NUP Forum. However, today my relationship with all these individuals is good.We are decent people and we have agreed that misunderstanding between people is often unavoided. WE HAVE MOVED ON .When me and Kathos and Toegondo met at the PMDC rally, you all saw the pictures in which we hugged each other like we have never had any problems before.

If one man however wants to hold on grudges and try to use this forum to settle scores , we will not allow it. WE NOT ALLOW ONE PERSON TO BE MAKING MULTIPLE POSTS USING DIFFERENT MONIKERS TO KEEP TAKING US BACK AND FORTH .

Nobody will destroy this forum. If it costs us to ban people in droves, we will do it to make the forum survive.

We set up this forum to give people the opportunity to discuss matters of dire concern to Sierra Leone .We will not allow idle people to destroy our dream.

You can call us what you want. We will enforce discipline.

Anybody who does not obey the rules of the forum will be banned. Say what you will.

Rev...you do know that having the same ip address just says you are posting from the same household / account / router / proxy server. There could be more than one person from the same house posting to the forum with different handles.

IPs are assigned by the internet providers to the account using DHCP and only one per account, if you install a router that uses DHCP also / assign static IPs, all the computers in the house will have different fake ips behind the router, but the traffic to the internet will go through the same real ip address assigned to the account.

Even if there is no router, and only one pc, the same ip justs says that one or more persons are using the same internet connection (not even the pc, as one can switch computers) to post to the forum using different ips.

As much as it narrows down the posts to the same household / router / proxy server, you cannot without any confirmation from within say that the same person is using different handles to post to the forum.

banning ips is more like collective punishment if you have more than one person at the same locat1on using the forum.

Mr. Kabs Kanu, you are the kind of person that is typical of the people that ruined sa lone.

You had a debate with Mohm jalloh in which you posted your side and Mohm posted his side. Then you or someone thinking like you posted your post again saying you had derided Mohm. Then Mohm or someone who thinks like him posted his own post. You then went and removed Mohm's post. But you did not remove your own post.

That is CORRUPTION,Rev. Kanu. You should be ashamed that you feel the need to sink so low as censorship in order to live the big lie that you won a debate against another forumite.

When the person reposted Mohm's post that you had deleted, you say you would remove him from the forum. Even though the post was not posted, now you say have removed him. That is CORRUPTION, Rev. Kanu. You should be ashamed that you feel the need to contradict your self just so you could continue to live the lie that you won a debate against another forumite.

Then, you allege that your forum is being reduced to the dogs by one idle individual. You did not say how the individual is reducing the forum to dogs?
By posting here under fake names? But everyone, according to you, does that. By responding to vicious lies? But people do that here.

So, why don't you ban everyone who posts here under a false name and all those who post here in reply to lies told about them? Og course you won't because that is not your real reason for removing the individual.

The truth hurts but here it is: You are just one corrupt indiviual that can not go to to toe with others that have a better understanding of reasoning techiniques. So instead of learning from them, what do you do? You remove them -- the better to hide the proof that they can reason better than you.

How do you expect Sa lon to go befoe when misfits like you want top be given positions for whihc you are not qualified, while excluidng those that are qualified?

As of today, I am removing myself from your corrupt forum. You are nothing but a disgrace to our country.

This recently concluded Christmas, I had an opportunity to observe an exchange between my 7 year old nephew and 9 year old son. My nephew had requested an mp3 player for Christmas. None of us knew much about mp3 players so we thought this was a much too expensive gift for a 7 year old. My sister was at Toys R US when they announced an in store special on mp3 players. She rushed to the electronics section but all that was left were pink mp3 players at the discounted rate. She decided to buy it another way since this was my nephew's most requested item. As Christmas approached we all had our doubts as to whether my nephew would really appreciate receiving a pink mp3 player. Well the day came and he was so happy to have received what he really wanted that and he never complained about the color. My son, not satisfied with this acceptance of a pink mp3 player by a boy decided it was his duty to point out to my nephew that his mp3 player was pink. My nephew looked my son in the eyes and asked "what color is yours". Of course my son does not have an mp3 player so that was the end of the discussion.

My question to all you SLID opponents is "where is your plan"? Why are you more content being dead last as the bottom of human development indexes and being potrayed in the media as a poor country? Barack Obama wrote a book several years ago called "The Audacity of Hope", now he's running for the president of America. This is the same man who grew up poor and was abandoned by his father. What if he had not dared to dream. If you don't have dreams that's fine, but don't be a dream killer.

Thank you Erica for the analogy between your newphew and the ney sayers who believe our country can new be boldly developed. I won't waste my time any more to respond to comments that are geared to me rather than to the proposal. I have not heard anyone point that the SLID figures are wrong. If they pay attention to the video alone, they could do a simple arithmetic to see that Sierra Leone is losing over $750 million annually by the 1992 BBC documentary. And SLID can show that the figures there is significantly lower than estimated.

In conclusion, SLID is a revenue generating plan, and a proposal to use that revenue in infrastructure development. Like you said ERICA, let them come up with an alternative plan to get our country out of this misrable poverty and under development.

NEW DELHI: India's Tata Motors Limited unveiled the world's cheapest car yesterday, bringing car ownership closer for millions of poorer consumers in emerging markets but raising environmental concerns.

The four-seater Nano, with an engine around 625cc, will have a dealer price of 100,000 rupees ($2,500), about half the cost of the cheapest car on today's market, a 25-year old model from Maruti Suzuki, Tata's great rival.

The Nano will go on sale later this year, the company said.

"Let me assure you and our critics the car we have designed will meet all safety norms and all foreign environmental criteria," chairman Ratan Tata said as he unveiled what had been dubbed the "People's Car" at the Auto Expo in New Delhi.

"In a way it is a high point for me. There is a sense of achievement and vindication," he said later.

The compact but curvy Nano stands in sharp contrast to the luxury Jaguar and Land Rover brands that Tata is negotiating to acquire from Ford Motor Company.

Hundreds of people crowded into the pavilion to see the long-awaited launch, standing on chairs to get the best view as Tata introduced and then drove the car onto the stage in a media circus more worthy of a pop concert or an Oscar ceremony.

Tata planned the car years ago as a safer and more affordable alternative for the millions who often ferry families of four, plus baggage, on motorbikes and scooters.

"It's a dream come true," Delhi police constable Ashok Singh said at the show. "I look forward to buying that car. My wife will be really happy."

New cars are preferable to buyers in India, where the absence of an organised market for second-hand cars makes buying them a tedious and sometimes risky process.

Environmentalists are not so enthusiastic. They worry millions of the cheap cars will flood on to India's roads, many of which are already heavily congested, sending emissions levels sky high in Asia's third-biggest economy.

The car arrives at a time when oil has topped $100 a barrel, the move to fuel-efficient "green" cars is gaining momentum, and a wave of nostalgia has spurred sales of brands such as BMW's Mini and the Fiat 500 Cinquecento.

The car has a rear-mounted petrol engine and travels 20km per litre, with a basic model and two deluxe variants and plans for diesel versions.

"The proof of the pudding will be in driving it, but visually it looks pretty good," said London-based analyst Ashvin Chotai. "The pricing was a bit of a surprise. I thought it would be a bit higher." Tata said costs were kept low by cutting the "size of the package", which brought about a reduction in material.

I like it. I would love to know more about the quality and reliability. Hopefully it has high emissions standards because the poor air quality is a problem in many large third world cities. Can you imagine this vehicle being available in Sierra Leone or throughout Africa. Many with family abroad would be gifted with these cars. I hope this puts a lot of pressure on other auto makers. If the gas prices continue to go up, people are going to keep their vehicles longer to avoid car payments. Automakers are going to have to do something creative to encourage comsumers to buy new cars.

Patrick, I don't know if you read this post but I provided the link below. I have a question. How could you incorporate a partnership with an automaker like this to produce inexpensive cars in Sierra Leone for West Africa? Your plan calls for a beautiful highway system so now people need the cars to go along with it. Don't give up and don't get discouraged about the SLID. God gave you the vision and He will also supply the provision for the plan to manifest. Sometimes when you see another's work you know it is God inspired because most of us on our own couldn't dream up what God reveals to us. Keep pressing on, Sierra Leone will become a model state.

Thanks for drawing my attention to it Erica. I saw the heading but did not read it until you pointed it out. SLID proposes over $800 million in loan guarantees for manufacturing and small business development. It also proposes a $10 million scientific research grant fund that could be used in motorized transportation ddevelopment. I am extremely hopeful that SLID will be adopted and it will help make our country one of the best economies in Africa.

But, it is not in the interest if rogue farmers and traders take foodstuff into Guinea and Liberia. The act to smuggle meagre food from a poor Country should not be tolerated. APC must use everything to watch the border areas.
This is the reason why some of us are being calling for community farming in rural areas. When we calculate the price of ten second hand mercedes, it's worth it to invest that money on agricultural ools.
APC must expand agriculture now. The rogue farmers and traders should not be given a single day to rest.

Moh'm Allie,

Nothing is more nonsensical than somebody just getting up and attributing a post to another person WHO HAS NEVER , EVER PARTICIPATED IN A FORUM (without logic or legal proof).If our Criminal System of law was based on your brand of "logic" and legal framework, our jails would be jampacked with innocent persons.

I am not going to continue these exchanges with you.As our moderator told you, it is negative energy and I really do not have time for that, Moh'm. You seem to have time on hand for that. Frankly, I don't. Even if I have the time,I want to devote it on debates that have productive outcomes .

We have decided on our rule. Anyone who attributes a post to Ahmed Koroma (When he has never participated here before, using his real name ) again on this forum will be removed. The rule is set and will be enforced.

I hope you learn that it does not have to be about Moh'm all the time. We have to consider the interests of others too.

All thanks and goodbye.


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Forumites, please join me in thanking the Rev Kabs Kanu for putting Mohím Jalloh in his right place, the irrelevance patio of the befuddled. I was against any response by the Rev to his daydreaming illogical raison d'Ítre that I thought would somehow grace his ego thereby creating a room to vent his venomous thoughts. Yesterday I charged that advance age may be tricking Mohímís reasoning by placing a little augmentation in his frontal lobe, causing distorted convictions and grandiose effects. Mohím is loosing it! What a waste!

Thank you for your rejoinder. One of the lessons I have tried to encourage S/Leoneans to learn is to embrace discipline in thought. Which means that when they make claims of fact, they should duly adduce evidence purporting to support such claims, and when they make conclusions they should show that the conclusions are valid. Sadly, you have demonstrated that you have not quite achieved that discipline in your thought.

As always, I will adduce evidence supporting my conclusion. You had claimed that :"BOTH LEGALLY AND LOGICALLY, the contention that somebody has never participated here before using his real name is a solid defense against a charge that the same person is now participating here using a fake name."

In response, I stated: "The simple question that should help you see the fallacy in your statement above is this: Is it a requirement for someone to post on this forum that the person must first have "participated here before using his real name?"
ANSWER: Obviously not!"

Notice that I showed your claim to be lacking in merit by exposing its basis as false. I did so by showing that one does NOT need to have participated here using his/her real name BEFORE they can participate using a false name. In order for you to overcome my rebuttal, you needed to show that, contrary to my claim, it is NOT possible for someone to post here using a false name unless they had FIRST posted here with their real name. Yet, you failed to show that -- because it is simply not true.

Instead, you simply repeated the very same porous claim that I had already rebutted: "Nothing is more nonsensical than somebody just getting up and attributing a post to another person WHO HAS NEVER , EVER PARTICIPATED IN A FORUM (without logic or legal proof)."

Which raises the question that you also failed to answer, namely: How can you know whether any person has ever participated in a forum where people use false names? The obvious answer is you can't. Indeed, even you stated just that in your maiden posting in this thread when you wrote: "We believe that no contributor has the science or technology to arbitrarily declare that certain posts came from specific individuals.Even we who control the forum cannot be certain until we have made a sustained study and placed many variables together to note IP frequency and other factors we will not waste our time going over here ."

Therefore, when you turned around and contradicted yourself -- by claiming that you know who posts here (and therefore who does not post here) -- it was clear that you were speaking through both sides of your mouth at the same time. This is why I duly advised you that your claim was nonsensical.

Please contrast my proof cired above to your regrettably empty statement and you will see, hopefully, what I mean when I say that, sadly, you have demonstrated that you have not quite achieved the requisite level of discipline in your thought that demonstrates your awareness of the necessity for proof whenever you make claims of fact or conclusions.

Finally, please understand that you have the right to make any rule in your forum, no matter how ill-conceived and biased it is. However, you do not have a right to claim that a rule which is based on nonsensical reasoning -- as I prove above -- makes sense.

Kalos, when you reminded the doddering Moh'm that he was tottering towards the sunset, I was tickled pink. Some of us tried to warn the vendetta meister that he was unnecessarily clogging the forum with his pompous ego and gratuitously abusing people but all we got was his venomous invective-laden bile. De Pa Jos Too Tranga Yase! There was a time when the Mohmista had a dozen fires raging simultaneously as he fought real and immagined opponents on the forum.

And then he made the mistake to Fit-yie the man of the cloth, Rev Kabs Kanu himself. Well Una All Know Bot The Alaki Kackroach En De Pamine Bottle...

The Reverend just gently but firmly chided Moh'm, admonished him to change his wayward ways and told him to do frog-jumping, three times around the block, as punishment.

Now Moh'm is sitting at the back of the room, sulking, sucking his thumb and massaging his bruised ego. Kabs was not being mean to the Mohmista at all. He simply understands that although Moh'm is staring 60 in the face, he is just- to paraphrase Emmerson- Pikin Nar Granpa Kanda. And so he treated the child in Moh'm kindly but firmly and told him to stop misbehaving.

You go Rev!

Really? How can that be when Moh'm is not over 50?
mY ADVICE TO YOU IS BEFORE YOU START TALKING ABOUT MOHMJ JALLOH, first try to know who you are talking about.

All this boto-bata you write hiding behind so many monikers does not make Mohm look bad, it makes only you look look ignorant. becos those of us that know mohm jalloh only laugh at you jokers trying to Ph.D (pull him down) the man.

I saw Mohm's reply to Kabs Kanu and I was not surprised that he made mincemeat of Kanu's argument. Why was I not surorised? That's becos I know him -- unlike you that don't even know Mohm is not older than 50.

Get a life, mate. Mohm is already a well-known and well-respected Salone man. Labo labo from jokers like you that don't know him will never change that. Not that you will ever know that -- you are just too dumb.

In one fell swoop, Rev Kanu took steps yesterday to protect the anonymity of forumites and make sure that the forum is not used by people to savage the reputation of innocents, settle scores, pump vendettas or otherwise throw mud at people we just don't like.

The good Rev also reaffirmed his commitment to the free flow of ideas by those who want to make their contributions in annonymity without fear or favor, that has made the forum the most dynamic and largest discussion board in the Salone community.

He accomplished all this by telling a certain forumite that maligning an innocent bystander will not be tolerated and will be punished if the behaviour continues. He effectively told the bra for go pump nar corner.

I have little children and I think it is important to discipline misbehaviour immediately. If I don't dare to discipline them and just coddle them, they might grow to be like...well...egomaniacal economists. Yikes!!

Please this is not funny. The past four years, Cocorioko' Editor in chief, the Moderator and its Board Members have sacrifices there finance, time and sleepless nights to bring us what we have today.

It is only fair for all of us to understand the difficulties, facing the news outlet to bring you fresh news day in and day out.

Your case is a perfect example. We have someone paying us for calling card advertisement. How can you bring your link into the forum? Is that really fair for these people patronizing cocorioko?

In light on you skillfully insisting on breaking the rules( Candid Opinion), your IP addresses has been recommended for expulsion indefinitely to demonstrated our commitment to enforce the rule.

I regret to announce the death of a very distinguish A.P.C. veteran politician, the Hon. Alhaji S.A.T. Koroma.
Hon. Alhaji S.A.T. Koroma served our country very well in various positions during the early days of the A.P.C.(a minister of government, member of parliament, chairman of many boards and leader of the APC).
He was one of the founding fathers of the A.P.C. who never walked away from the party at any point because he believed in the party. I hope that other members of the APC will emulate the good examples of this true Sierra Leonean.
I pray that the Almighty Allah will forgive all his sins and accept him in "Aljana" heaven.
On behalf of the SLPP family world wide and on my own personal behalf, I extend our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to the entire S.A.T.Koroma family. I pray that Allah will console and comfort the family.
May his soul rest in perfect peace. AMINA.

Mr. Bockari,
Thanks for the impressive display of an engineering masterpiece. In the event that the APC gives you the contract to pursue the development of Sierra Leone's infrastructure, will you change the APC symbol on your blueprint to the SLPP symbol if the APC lost the elections in 2012? Will you at that time also play "...the game to achieve my goal for a developed Sierra Leone?" Do you think there is nothing wrong with compromising your professionalism as long as you can get a contract from the government/political party in power?

I feel ashamed of myself but I all humans make mistakes. I was trying to pamper to the powers of the day. But to answer your question, yes, I will play the game with anyone as long as it leads to a developed Sierra Leone. What I will NEVER DO is play any game that will cheat out country and its poeple. My record on that speaks for itself. I have removed the APC symbol from the SLID page, and I am working on removing it from the proposal pages by tomorrow. This is in response to hundreds of similar comments. This is a national agenda - I agree and I hope I won't be offending anyone. Checkout the new link and click on the video link.

After reading the article by cocorioko "Sierra Leoneans support Cross-border trade with neighborsĒ they received utter respect from me. They chose a topic that all sierra Leonean cared about. A topic that unilaterally seemed to be bi-partisan in support of trade with others. I am proud of this paper. We all know any news paper would have its biases we are human. We love who we love. But a paper that would take something from a constructive argument I respect. My level of respect has been raised towards your news paper. Please continue the good work. We all are not going to agree. Just continue keeping government honest thatís all sierra Leonean asks for from all our papers. Even if u agrees with a president u do him or her better by speaking up when need be. Something that pro slpp papers did not do speaking up to its leaders when they messed up. If cocorioko serves as the conscience that promotes moderation in the new apc it would be hard for slpp to win next election. And putting aside partisan politics from both side this issue benefits our people. We should never let our anger and frustration allow us to make decisions. Any economist would see that we gain the most from exporting. We need to be able to give out as they bring in. the Guineans and Liberians are strengthening them economy when they export goods to us. We need to do the same thing. And I am glad that you mentioned fixing the roads. That benefits all sierra Leonean economically. If we continue to find common ground on economic issues that we as sierra Leonean agree on both slpp and apc we have a bright future. At the same time all parliamentarians should do what they were elected for provide foresight into government. It is not unpatriotic to ask questions. What is unpatriotic is when you just sign agreements or give the president go ahead without reading whatís at stake. God bless salone.

I decided to take a break from the current pusillanimous Kackchestism in the forum to try Candid Opinion's calling cards as advertised on this forum.
Logged in, click, click, sent in the bank card number, got a call from Customer service for verification, checked my mail. In less than two minutes I had my Wild Africa card # for $20.

Borbor ee sweet O! You know how those cards at the bodegas promise you one hour and only give you ten minutes? Not Candido's cards! Wild Africa promised me two hours and four minutes and ar finish am 'kuran'!

I actually had my calculator, checking my remaining minutes as I called all my JC junket girl friends and their mothers to gab about sweet nothings. And then I called up relatives in Freetown and Kono (Bad idea..Now they want me to send them money). Then after all de labofest, ar pass gee de rest of the minutes to me paddy Abdulai (Nickname: Card Burner). Now he is gone Candido-card crazy!

You know what I just did? I called my Bodega Card seller and resigned my commission with him right there and then. I got a new thing going.

The only problem: Customer Service did not ask me whether I saw the ad by Candido on Cocorioko! Anyways I'm hooked.

P.S: Candido did not pay, bribe or threaten me into singing his card's praises. As a matter of fact I have never met him. I wouldn't know Candid Opinion from Candid Camera! But his cards are simply the best... and the most honest I have ever used in the States!

According to the youth of Kent, a certain amount of money should be paid to them to keep the beach areas clean so that holiday makers could have a clean environment to enjoy and to cherish and if that money was not paid to them, they would not allow holiday makers to enter the beach area.
The youths of Freetown argued that they had paid some money to a committee of elders who had given them the green light to enter the beach area and have fun and that they didnít consider it necessary to dish out more money to a group of misguided youths who were out to exploit holiday makers whose presence was legitimate and beneficial to the Kent community.
An argument followed that resulted into physical free fight in which one Freetown youths was stabbed with a knife and lunch baskets of delicious jollof rice and salad were confiscated by hungry-looking Kent youths.
The youths of Freetown fought back and in their large numbers pushed back the youths of Kent who then went on the rampage stoning houses and churches and beating up their own elders whom they suspected of unfair treatment regarding incomes collected from the beach.
The Church of England edifice in Kent Village which was recently renovated with funds from the United Kingdom was vandalised and left as an eyesore when window panes were broken by stone-throwing youths who threatened to burn down the Kent Village to correct imaginary wrongs by their elders and roaming bands of youths looking for cheap fun at their expense.
The wayward youths reportedly stormed the school at Kent, brought out benches and desks and set them on fire with the aim of burning down the whole school.
ďWhat do the youths hope to gain by burning their only school?Ē An angry elder asked in desperation.
The meagre police presence in Kent was unable to contain the onslaught and took to their heels announcing that they were going for police reinforcement in neighbouring Tombo.
When the three embattled Kent policemen surfaced at Tombo, they exaggerated the situation so much that they made it very fearful in the process.
And to their surprise, the police at Tombo became so frightened that instead of proceeding to Kent, they decided to go to Waterloo for more reinforcement.
And when the Waterloo police heard about the fearful propensity of the fighting at Kent Village, they decided that they would not go on the rescue until they too got reinforcement from Jui Police Barracks.
The Jui Police Barracks instead of going to the rescue of distressed Kentians decided the matter should first be reported to Kissi police which has gained notoriety for the heavy-handed way they handled the protesting Muslim Congress students recently.
Surprisingly, no police officer was available to quell the riot until all the holiday makers and their peers had left the scene of fighting at their own volition after wreaking on untold havoc on private properties of private citizens of Kent, including the old church and the school that have been recently renovated with funds from the UK.
An elder of Kent expressed stunning surprise at the mass retreat of whole police stations always on the excuse that more hands were needed to control the combating youths.
ďI think these areas which are intermittently frequented by youths from all over Sierra Leone need a robust police presence as against the retreating ones we now have and I ask the Inspector General of the Police, Brima Acha Kamara to raise the necessary robust force that can confront rioters than the one that is notorious for running away at the slightest sign of chaos.Ē
Some elders of Kent including the former chairman of the Rural Area Council have opined that this may not be the last of such outbursts as each year the convergence gets bigger and bigger.
ďHow can we be satisfied with a police force that keeps running away from a few youths, all the way from Kent to Kissy Police breathlessly?Ē They asked.

I think it is unfair to accused Berewa for that execution. Berewa was a govt lawyer who prosecuted the case. Although there were questions about the trial, it was Kabba who signed the death penalty. The president, according to our constitution, is the only one who has the power of clemency. There were lots of international concerns and calls on Kabba to used his perogative of mercy but went unheeded. Berewa was not the president and did not have that power.

Negative Energy People

Perhaps you have a friend who needs to challenge everything you say. Some people you know may point out the negative aspects of everything. Then there are those who are just plain depressed and who seem to want the world to join them.

What can you do about these "negative energy people"? First recognize that it isn't always just that person. It is often the way you interact with that person. For example, a critical person can be a useful person if critical analysis is what you need at that moment. However, such a person may drain your energy if you waste your time defending yourself from their petty and unnecessary comments. Ignore them or ask the person to stop!

There are other ways to change the negative energy between you and another. One way is to talk about something you both have a common interest in. This can dissolve the negativity, unless it is a very depressing topic.

Another simple technique is to ask negative people for some good news. Get them to tell you about anything that is going well in their lives. It's hard to maintain negative feelings when talking about something good. This one really does work most of the time.

If the above ways don't work, or if the person is just always depressing, the solution is simple, but not necessarily easy - spend less time with that person. You have to spend some time with unpleasant people, of course. They could even be people you love. However, you have no obligation to take part in their negative thinking, and you can reduce your exposure.

Negative Energy From Our Thinking

At times, don't we all produce our own share of negative energy? It comes from primarily one place - our thoughts. You may have heard the saying, "change your thinking, change your life." Don't believe it?

Start to imagine all the things you need to do and all the things that could go wrong in your future, and see if you aren't feeling more stressed. The lesson here is obvious: Drop your negative thinking.

It is a simple, but not always an easy solution. Start by watching your mind. When does it indulge in negativity, and what triggers it? What can you change to trigger it less or discourage it?

You don't want to ignore problems that you need to pay attention to, but how often do you do the same five minutes of thinking about a problem fifty times over? Just do what you need to do and drop it!

The flip side of negative thoughts is positive ones. This doesn't mean you need to be overly optimistic. You can change your state of mind by simply recognizing of all the good things you already have in your life. Continually thinking about the advantages you have, the good things about your character, and the wonderful things you have seen and are seeing, makes it difficult to feel very negative.

Start doing what you have to. For example, if it's difficult for you to remember to think positively, write a list of the things you are grateful for. Then put it in your pocket and pull it out and read it from time to time. Maybe you can experiment with affirmations. Start watching for things that are going right in your life and pay attention to those. Positive and negative energy come from where you aim your mind. Why not choose better places?

Did you read his press conference on Awareness Times before he left on the Kenyan trip? I predicted this will happen to him. he was supposed to bring back good lessons from Kenya (ha ha ha!) he really has one - declaring the winner as the one who succeeded in accomplishing what SLPP'S John Benjamin, John Karimu, & Patrick Foyah failed to do in the Sierra Leone run-off election.

Opportunist, why insult me? I only stated something that happened? SLID is not a stupid proposal. The president did hold a press conference that was published on Awareness Times. He did say he believed Salone could learn a lot from Kenya, and he hoped he was goinging to bring back lessons Salone could learn from. He did say that Kenya's advanced ID system precludes any possibility for election fraud. Finally, I believe reports were substantiated that the trio, Benjamin, Karimu, and Foyah tried to rig elections in Kailahun District - possibly leading to the disqualification of the votes in that district which sealed the loss for the SLPP.

The concept of leveraging a country's current and future revenue resources for large public infrastructure devlopment is a modern public financing tool used in many countries. For our country, I know it is a pioneering effort that will take time to catch on. I don't believe your claim that parliament will reject SLID because I am biased towards the APC or APC/PMDC coalition. I am simply playing the game to achieve my goal for a developed Sierra Leone. I will keep trying till I succeed.

Patrick,
I kinda snapped at some of your proposals after a rather lazy read. However I took the time and actually read through your website and boy, O boy, what impressive research you fellas have accumulated. I am very proud of you guys and if you would have me, I would very much like to be a part of this wonderful venture. You have smashed all the parochial paradigms and reengineered the infrastructural vision for Sierra Leone. Talk about dreaming big! This is simply audacious and actually possible....with a lot of hard work. I am working on a project that has me on a tight schedule for now. I should be through with it in the next few weeks and will then contact you.
Once more, thanks for daring greatly.
Salone first, forever.
Fen.

The SLID proposal was only done by these two guys but it's a national property. Anybody who sees it for the first time would have no reason to stay on his or her seat if he or she was sitting. That proposal made me believe that all was not lost and that we have people who can see ahead to make good things for their fellow man. I have always been asking myself why the preso keeps going out to look for money to buy generators for electricity when we have the money. Patrick and Sahr are worth saluting.

The First Lady of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Madam Sia Koroma, is earnestly in action to bring a measure joy to the war-beaten children of that country. Goaded by maternal pursuits, Madam Sia Koroma is making headlines as she builds a relationship with the children of Sierra Leone. As her community-activism strives to bring smiles onto the faces of Sierra Leonean children, Sia Koroma should be reminded about the importance of balancing her motherly status with the need for staying fit and firm. After a careful look at the current picture of the First Lady posted on Cocorioko, I was left with the impression that Madam Sia Koroma is slowly picking up the pounds that can make her look chubby. As a public figure with unimpeded access to the national spotlight, the First Lady is a model in the eyes of the children she touches with compassion. The sight of a health-conscious Sia Koroma, beaming in a well-trimmed body, can convey useful lessons of wellness to the womenfolk of Sierra Leone. There was a time when folkloric African beliefs held sway with the myth that a bloated body is equal to robust health. Scientific evidence has since revealed that once left unchecked, weight-gain can compromise the body's ability to stave off diseases. Being over-weight is the surest road to diabetes and the numberless ailments that continue to plaque modern man.

Unlike the industrialized world where even fruits and vegetables are grown with pesticides, agrarian Sierra Leone enjoys mother nature in pristine condition by reproducing many food items with untainted freshness. In her position as First Lady, Madam Sia Koroma has the cachet, and the financial means, to buy the freshest fruits and vegetables grown on Sierra Leonean soil. Eating well and exercising at her own pace, can transform our First Lady into a firm and lean woman, armed with the gait of a healthy diva. Although I dislike the APC with every political nerve, Sia Koroma's well-being remains a sacrosanct canon well-above partisan politics. The kids she lovingly touches are Sierra Leoneans, not APC scions of privilege. Sia Koroma is a public figure. On every occasion she exhibits her charms on the international stage, foreign observers look at her as the embodiment of Sierra Leonean womanhood. In the interest of the young women and children she dearly loves, Sia Koroma needs to live an exemplary lifestyle that promotes healthy living as a cardinal virtue.

Being a Voluptuous lady doesn't necessarily mean that she is unhealthy.The first lady to me, looks healthier than flat chested anorexic looking "western super models" like Nicol Kid-man, Posh Spice Beckham, Kate Moss and Mary-Ann Olsen.

I BELIEVE WE SHOULD SUPPORT BAN ON FOOD BEEN SMUGGLED OUT ILLEGALLY. BUT AT THE SAME TIME WE SHOULD ENCOURAGE FREE TRADE. WE NEED TO ENCOURAGE THE FACT THAT WE ARE EXPORTING SOMETHING OTHER THAN DIAMONDS TO BRING IN FOREIGN CURRENCY. OUR ECONOMY SHOULD BE DIVERSIFIED AND EVERY SECTOR THAT AIMS TO BRING IN FOREIGN RESERVES SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED. WE NEED TO ENCOURAGE OUR FARMERS GIVE THEM THE RESOURCES SO THEY PRODUCE ENOUGH TO EXPORT AND SELL LOCALLY. WE NEED TO ANSWER SUCH QUESTIONS AS 1. WHY ARE THEY ONLY CHOOSING TO EXPORT IF THAT'S THE CASE. 2. WHAT CAN WE DO SO THEY SELL SOME OF THE FOOD LOCALLY IF THAT'S A PROBLEM.
IN THIS ERA OF FREE TRADE I FEEL WE SHOULD ENCOURAGE EXPORTS AS LONG AS ITS DONE LEGALLY. AND WE SHOULD NOT USE LEGAL CHANNELS AS A BUREAUCRATIC FORM AIM AT GETTING BRIBES BY OUR LOCAL POLITICIANS.

I DONT THINK BANNING EXPORTS IS THE SOLUTION. AND TO THOSE FARMERS WHOM CHOOSE TO BREAK THE LAW I WOUDL WANT TO CRITICISE THEM ALSO. FOLLOW THE LAW. IF YOU DONT AGREE WRITE TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVES. IF THEY DO NOT LISTEN THEY WOULD BE VOTED OUT. YET THESE FARMERS HAVE FAMILIES. I THOGUHT THE NEW GOVERNMENT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE PRO BUSINESS. FARMERS I WOUDL DESCRIBE AS SMALL FAMILY BUSINESS. WE NEED TO ENCOURAGE THEM. BOTH SLPP AND APC TRY SOME ECONOMIC REFORM THAT WORKS FOR ONCE. we complain that our currency is not strong. how coudl we have a strogn currency when we do not support legal forms of our businesses exportign goods. I know i am gonna get heat from both sides or one side is gonna try to talk abotu what godo they have done. i woudl rather hear solutions from you. or constructive critism of why allowing peopel to export legally and increase our foreign reserves and the economic well been fo our nation is bad.

Honestly am grappling with the idea that the exportation of foodstuff is currently frowned upond by the govt. why and what is the rationale behind this......do we really exepect villages boardering liberia nd Guinea to wait for traders to come from freetown to buy products they have laboured to grow fro the the whole year. Nope the road system is atrocious, and these products will perish no matter what. Moreover, they need cash flow to take care of their families, and buys seeds for next farming seasons. If the govt. is trying to alliviate any food shortage problem is should not be at the expense of poor farmers in villages that are in any way shape or form benefiing from the central government. Issue out such ublic orders is wrong, proper thoughts must be given to the implications of such pronouncements, and how to remedy these situations. Farmers are already suffering please to compound thier suffering so as to please urban masses!!!!!!!!

With regards to this article, the language in sierra leone is let us ban these people, or let us ban that.If only we can debate issues and bring positive changes to Sierra leone rather fight over and over again.

I hope the apc will also ban Guineans from smuggling cereals, carnations milk, sugar and vegetable cooking oil into our country. I also hope that Cocorioko will also call Liberians unpatriotic for bringing in sneakers, jeans, watches and electronics through our back door. Why ban Kailahun and Pujehun from selling rice to neighbouring countries at the border? I thought the rice masters farmers were in bat kanu and walah all the way up north. Is it illegal and unpatriotic to sell our goods at our borders? Because that is what usually happens on a NDOWEI day at the border. People some times even engage in bata trading at the border. Rather than ban those peasant farmers from selling their stufs at the border the apc should help them produce more to saturate the local market.

People dont take their wares to neighboring countries as gifts. They sell them, and indeed to the highest bidder. Government cannot "regulate' without providing an enabling environment. I guess the people of Pujehun and kailahun are returning to the pre-war days where they cared less what obtained or who is in power in freetown. these people virtualy grew everything, worked very hard and traded and financed their kids education from those produce. I think government should be concerned with the most important things of creating an environment where free market thrives such as providing viable electricity, better roads, subsidies for farmers, and opportunities for small businesses. Once that is done, unemployment rate will drop, business will thrive, more foreign exchange, etc etc. The writer of that article seems to be engaged in a reverse economic policy. While greater countries like China, USA and Japan are looking for markets to sell their Toys, foodstuff and electronics, our editor is advocating for blocking Siera Leone's export. I hate to return to the days of Hassan Gbessay kanu rice era. I think news from kailahun and Pujehun is good. Lets encourage them to do so,and by so, we reduce the tension in Freetown where everyone is busy fighting to become a minister.

"Since everyone uses monikers, nobody has a right to arbitrarily attribute posts to real names of other persons."

Kabs:

Thank you for clarifying, albeit belatedly, that those who have long been addicted to attributing postings to my name on this forum have no right to do so. In view of your silence throughout the time those culprits have been flouting the above-cited rule of your forum, I hope you would be kind enough to answer the following questions:

1. Kabs, why did you fail to issue a "Warning to Mohamed Jalloh Name-Dropper" all this time when others, including Fen Plaba, have been attributing "posts to real names of other persons" like myself?

2. If you refused and failed to issue such a warning to protect others, including myself, from harassment, why are you now issuing it to protect only Ahmed Koroma?

(a) Since you avow that "we are not babies on this forum," does your unwarranted special action to protect Ahmed Koroma, while failing to similarly protect the other forum members, mean that you regard Ahmed Koroma as a baby?

3. Are your "rules" designed to protect only Ahmed Koroma from harassment but not to protect all forum members equally from harassment?

4. If, as you claim, you haven't been wasting your time to identify any contributor," on what basis can you say that a posting is not from a specific contributor?

5. In particular, how can you say that Ahmed Koroma is not posting on this forum when you admit that you can not be sure who is posting here?

6. Are you an expert on writing styles?

(a) If so, what is the basis of your claim to being an expert?

(b) If not, on what grounds can you claim to be able to identify or exclude the identity of forum members based on their alleged writing styles?

7. Do you agree that your issuing a warning on behalf of Ahmed Koroma only, while having failed to issue similar warnings on behalf of other forum members to whose real names people like Fen Plaba have attributed postings, destroys your credibility as an impartial administrator?

(a) If so, don't you think you should issue a fairer, general warning to all forum members, including Fen Plaba, against attributing postings to the real names of people like myself and other forum members with whom Fen Plaba and others like him are gratuitously obsessed?

(b) If not, please answer questions 1 through 7(a) above.

I look forward to receiving your answers.

Best regards,

MOHAMED ,

Ahmed is accusing you at LEONENET-TAMU of probably being the one attacking him on this forum.I have no evidence to substantiate that. Some other forumites who wrote me personally are saying the same thing.I told them I have no evidence.

I don't understand why some of you fail to understand the issues at stake. Ahmed Koroma has never used his name on this forum.He has never manifested that he is a member of the forum.If he had been participating , using his real name, then somebody would have argued that posts were attributed to his name based on his writing style. But how can somebody just get up and attribute posts to a man who has never participated here before using his real name ? You tell me .

In your case, you participate here with your real name so it is easier for people to attribute posts to you . They cannot be right. They have attributed posts to me that I knew nothing about.They don't accuse you alone.They accuse me, Allieu Iscandri, John Leigh, Foday Mansaray and anybody who uses his/her real name, so you can't play victim here, Mohamed.

Let those responsible for dragging into this forum people whose names have never appeared here. They have no art to find out who really made posts here.

This is not a question of credibility. This is a question of simple logic. How do people know that certain posts were made by Ahmed when he has never participated here before ? (We have no record of posts carrying his real name ).

"But how can somebody just get up and attribute posts to a man who has never participated here before using his real name ? You tell me."

Kabs:

Thank you for your reply. I will answer your above-quoted question in the hope that you will use that example to motivate you to answer my own earlier and still outstanding questions to you.

The answer to your question is: The same way somebody else can "just get up and attribute posts to a man who has never participated here before using his real name."

The obvious point I hope you get from my above answer is this: One does not need to have used one's real name to post here previously before one post here with a fake name. It's really that simple. Therefore, the contention that somebody "has never participated here before using his real name" is not a defense against a charge that the same person is now participating here using a fake name.

Hopefully, you will now see that your contention upon which you rely to deny that Ahmed Koroma is posting here using a fake name lacks any merit.

As I respectfully await your own omitted answers to my questions I posed to you earlier today, please allow me to comment briefly on the reported allegations allegedly made by Ahmed Koroma on Leonenet Tamu.

As you would recall from seven years ago, Ahmed Koroma was part of the malicious group of childish individuals on Leonenet that included P.. K. Muana, Kayode Robin-Coker and Sourie Touray, whom John L. Musa, Esq., correctly diagnosed as "roof-top amplifiers of wild charges." By that, Mr. Musa meant that no sooner did one of the fact-challenged cabal started a vicious, malicious rumor than the rest of them would amplify it in even greater malicious venom as if from the proverbial rooftop of malice.

It was the same small but disproportionately loquacious group of anti-social individuals that I was obliged to expose as defaming frauds on Leonenet in 2001. Subsequently, they unwittingly took Mr. Musa's advice to remove themselves from the decorous midst of Leonenet's serious members and go and form a listserv by themselves where they could wallow in vile defamation to their relish.

I hope you understand, therefore, why I would not dignify any allegation made by a member of such a proven cabal of malicious liars with a response, or, much less, accord it even minimal credibility.

I duly await your outstanding answers to my questions.

In closing, kindly permit me to ask you a question regarding your statement that people have no right to "find out who really made posts here." The question is:

Was the moderator here aware of that rule when he openly stated on Cocorioko that he had given information to the self-admitted tribalistic John Leigh, identifying a person(s) who had posted a response to Leigh's tribalistic rant?

Best regards,

Moh'm

MOHAMED,

I really don't have the time to engage in these meaningless exchanges with you, especially when you do not pursue points to their logical conclusion , like the one you made above.

BOTH LEGALLY AND LOGICALLY, the contention that somebody has never participated here before using his real name is a solid defense against a charge that the same person is now participating here using a fake name.

What legal and logical yardstick can you use to attribute a post to somebody else ?

We both know Abioseh, our brother. He has never participated here .He has never used his real name to participate here , that is . How can I jump up and say with certainty "This post was made by Abioseh ?" Isn't that innane and stupid ?

Get real, Mohamed . The issue is not whether it is right and fair for others to accuse known forumites of making posts. The issue is whether a post can be attributed legally and logically to somebody who has never been known to participate on this forum before .

Until you can demonstrate WITH CLEAR AND CONVINCING ARGUMENTS BACKED BY TANGIBLE FACTS , please drop this argument before you start looking ugly.

I did not bother to read your other posts on Ahmed Koroma because I am just not interested.

The simple question that should help you see the fallacy in your statement above is this: Is it a requirement for someone to post on this forum that the person must first have "participated here before using his real name?"

ANSWER: Obviously not!

Hopefully, you now understand why it is completely nonsensical to state, as you did, that: "BOTH LEGALLY AND LOGICALLY, the contention that somebody has never participated here before using his real name is a solid defense against a charge that the same person is now participating here using a fake name."

I hope you are able to see more clearly from the above analysis of your logical fallacy where the source of any "meaningless exchanges" you observe is located.

Moh'm Allie,

Nothing is more nonsensical than somebody just getting up and attributing a post to another person WHO HAS NEVER , EVER PARTICIPATED IN A FORUM (without logic or legal proof).If our Criminal System of law was based on your brand of "logic" and legal framework, our jails would be jampacked with innocent persons.

I am not going to continue these exchanges with you.As our moderator told you, it is negative energy and I really do not have time for that, Moh'm. You seem to have time on hand for that. Frankly, I don't. Even if I have the time,I want to devote it on debates that have productive outcomes .

We have decided on our rule. Anyone who attributes a post to Ahmed Koroma (When he has never participated here before, using his real name ) again on this forum will be removed. The rule is set and will be enforced.

I hope you learn that it does not have to be about Moh'm all the time. We have to consider the interests of others too.

All thanks and goodbye.

Kabs:

Thank you for your rejoinder. One of the lessons I have tried to encourage S/Leoneans to learn is to embrace discipline in thought. Which means that when they make claims of fact, they should duly adduce evidence purporting to support such claims, and when they make conclusions they should show that the conclusions are valid. Sadly, you have demonstrated that you have not quite achieved that discipline in your thought.

As always, I will adduce evidence supporting my conclusion. You had claimed that :"BOTH LEGALLY AND LOGICALLY, the contention that somebody has never participated here before using his real name is a solid defense against a charge that the same person is now participating here using a fake name."

In response, I stated: "The simple question that should help you see the fallacy in your statement above is this: Is it a requirement for someone to post on this forum that the person must first have "participated here before using his real name?"
ANSWER: Obviously not!"

Notice that I showed your claim to be lacking in merit by exposing its basis as false. I did so by showing that one does NOT need to have participated here using his/her real name BEFORE they can participate using a false name. In order for you to overcome my rebuttal, you needed to show that, contrary to my claim, it is NOT possible for someone to post here using a false name unless they had FIRST posted here with their real name. Yet, you failed to show that -- because it is simply not true.

Instead, you simply repeated the very same porous claim that I had already rebutted: "Nothing is more nonsensical than somebody just getting up and attributing a post to another person WHO HAS NEVER , EVER PARTICIPATED IN A FORUM (without logic or legal proof)."

Which raises the question that you also failed to answer, namely: How can you know whether any person has ever participated in a forum where people use false names? The obvious answer is you can't. Indeed, even you stated just that in your maiden posting in this thread when you wrote: "We believe that no contributor has the science or technology to arbitrarily declare that certain posts came from specific individuals.Even we who control the forum cannot be certain until we have made a sustained study and placed many variables together to note IP frequency and other factors we will not waste our time going over here ."

Therefore, when you turned around and contradicted yourself -- by claiming that you know who posts here (and therefore who does not post here) -- it was clear that you were speaking through both sides of your mouth at the same time. This is why I duly advised you that your claim was nonsensical.

Please contrast my proof cired above to your regrettably empty statement and you will see, hopefully, what I mean when I say that, sadly, you have demonstrated that you have not quite achieved the requisite level of discipline in your thought that demonstrates your awareness of the necessity for proof whenever you make claims of fact or conclusions.

Finally, please understand that you have the right to make any rule in your forum, no matter how ill-conceived and biased it is. However, you do not have a right to claim that a rule which is based on nonsensical reasoning -- as I prove above -- makes sense.

There are two things involved in the whole debate. One, Kabs is trying to maintain that much-needed sanity and discipline that the forum craves. In that regard, we would grant him that overwhelming support, no doubt. But there's another side to the whole debate, and that is, the logical consistency. I think Brother Jalloh was consistently following a very thought-provoking line of debate that was undeniable.

You are right on both counts. Personally, I think Rev. Janu missed an opportunity to show that he was being logical and fair in his actions when he didnnot listed to what Mr. Jalloh advised him. Mr. Jalloh asked Rev. Kanu to issue a blanket warning against people saying a post came from a real person's name. This is a bad thing that too many forumites do when every logical post they see they say it is made by Mr. Jalloh

Rather than doing what many of us would have supported more, Rev. Kanu chose to issue a one-sided warning favoring Ahmed Koroma. Like I said, Rev. Kanu missed an oportunity to show his lack of partiality.

The maturity displayed by Rev Kanu in disciplining the brattish Moh'm Jalloh is what is sorely needed on the forum. It's about someone ripped off the plaster from the sore foot that is Mr. Jalloh and his boringly illogical 'logic'. Thanks Rev Kanu for sanitizing the forum and actually helping Moh'm as he sits in a corner, sucking his thumb, licking the lacerations of his battered ego, learning hard lessons in humility, good behavior and respect.

Otherwise, one would have to conclude that the indispensable function of courts of law in maintaining decorum in civilized societies constitutes "engaging in negative energy."

As regards the basis of my claim, in the usual interest of accuracy, I set forth below the evidence in the form of your own writing that you posted here:

If you think that posting from a public library will make you anonymous, please think again.

Have ever you asked yourself why there's a number on every computer at that library why your library card is scanned every time you want to use any othe their PCs?

Thank you for your rejoinder. I respectfully disagree with your claim, referring to myself that "[t]elling the [ex]-ambassador [John Leigh] to check his email does not assert any validation to any of your claims."

In order to see the error in your claim, please witness the following analysis:

You had openly invited Leigh to contact you regarding a posting(s) that had apparently responded to his self-admitted tribalistic rant. In response to your invitation, Leigh openly asked you to send him information about the identity of the person(s) who made the posting(s). You then replied to Leigh advising the person(s) you imagined had made the posting that he/she had used a library card and that he/she can't hide his/her identity. Immediately after that gratuitous assertion, you then said directly to Leigh that he should check his E-mail.

I submit to you that any reasonable person reading the above-described exchange between you and the self-admitted tribalistic Leigh would come to the eminently reasonable conclusion that (a) you had provided Leigh the information you claimed to have obtained and which you had earlier invited you to request from you; and/or (b) you wanted the person(s) that you had imagined was the one who had posted the reply(ies) to Leigh to believe that you had done so.

In either case, you breached the rule that Kabs now tells us binds this forum, namely, that no person has the right to know who posts here.

Kudos to you for trying to bring fairness andf sanity to this place. Many of us are turned off by the rudeness that goes on here while the moderator and Kabs sit back and tolerate it.

When you introduced a serious discussion of revaluation, the usual suspects cowering under their monikers turned your serious writings into an excuse to shower abuse upon you.

That these same mischief makers should now posture as inocent bystanders is an utter disgrace that the Chariman Himself had said he would not tolerate. WEe wait to see if the Chairman speaks and Kabs ignores him by coddling the very moniker abuser, Fen Plaba, that the chairman whad warned against fruadulent behavior.

"Your argument has no legs."

Now that we have your opinion, why don't you show us your proof that Jalloh's argument "has no legs?"

I have no doubt that you are the moniker abuser whose abusive behavior was exposed by someone here recently. At that time you were proven to be the shameless coward hiding behind the fake names, Gbana Monkey and Fen Plaba.

Now, in a brazen display of shameless gall, you -- the proven abuser of people here hiding behind fake names -- come here to accuse others not ever proven guilty of the acts of dishonesty for which the Chairman of Cocorioko had specifically warned you about.

Worse still, demonstrating the public immorality which you have shown yourself to be chronically infected, you come here complaining about Ahmed Koroma's name being publicized here. Yet, like the typical shameless hypocrite that you have been proved to be, you keep quiet about your gratuitous splashing of the name of Mohamed Jalloh and others in violation of Kabs Kanu's law that he never once enforced against your shameless acts of public immorality.

I find your corruption possible only because Kabs encourages corrupt cowards like you among decent people. If you do not want your name splashed around Cocorioko, then, do not splash the names of innocent people on Cocorioko. It is time you learnt how to respect other people -- by respecting yourself for a change.

You can not be expected to resist the temptation to be your naturally indisciplined and hopelessly dishonest self. Let's hope that Rev. Kanu does not suffer from the lack of discipline that makes you a perennial nuisance around civilized people. LONTA

Thank you so much for asking about my welfare. When the forum recently took a dive into a sewer composed of insults and feather-brained comments, I decided to take a break from Cocorioko. Cocorioko is much finer when this forum is tense with ideoligically-inspired debates among Sierra Leoneans of various persuasions.

Once again, thank you so much for thinking about me. It is always pleasurable to be remembered by retentive minds like yours. I can only hope that you are just as fine in God's glories.

Former President Clinton openly attacked Senator Barak Obama to boost the fading poll numbers of the formerís wife. Now Hillary Clinton won Iowa because of Bill Clintonís open attack of Obama.

In some quarters, President Clinton is referred to as the ďFirst Black U.S PresidentĒ However an attack on the first viable black candidate by Bill Clinton is an attack on all of us. Bill Clintonís attack on Obama is an attack on Nelson Mandela. It is an attack on Martin Luther King, jr.

Is Bill Clinton the Negro-lover he tries to portray?

Though to certain degree I commend the SLPP Kabbah gov. for allowing change eagerly sought by the people of Salone, I will completely disagree with anyone who says Berewa accepted the outcome of the elections intentionally to save conflict.

If that is the case why did he go all the way to the Court. And why Kailahun, Segwema,Pujehun and the sourrounding area were not allowed free movements of the then opposition? this will go down in our history and it is really bad for the SLPP supporters in those areas as they will be viewed to be tribalistic and engaged in ELITISM. Berewa and the SLPP used and abused the people of those regions.

The only thing Berewa saved was his own hide. Koroma won the election. So Berewa would have his hide in jail if he had tried to obstruct the results of the lawful Sa lone election, which are very different from the rigged Kenyan elections.

Why can't you SLPPers ever think like you went to school? Berewa, like the rest of the kleptomaniac SLPPers, was totally corrupt. And you unpatriotic SLPPers want to honor him for his corruption? Get real, you losers.

Tejan kabbah deserves awhole lot more credit than haja half ya, half yanda Kabbah...and definately more than Rev kabs kanu....

Where the election was lost was the overwelming desire for change.. SLPP could not put a dyke infront of that swelling river.. but the election was close enought for it to be controversial.. and berewa had all the rights in the world to challenge the results...plus as the ruling party.. fight dirty is that was the route taken by APC..

Anyways.. just mine own opinion..

Its a sad day when certain members of the APC threaten to boycott NOSLINA, a non profit, non political organization that has championed the fight for democracy in Sierra Leone since the days of the AFRC fiasco. An organization that has worked tirelessly for the people of Sierra Leone in the Diaspora and at home. NOSLINA has members that belong to all the major political parties in Sierra Leone. However our participation and involvement with NOSLINA does not mean that we have lost our rights as citizens of Sierra Leone to speak up in public forums on issues affecting our country. When I write on this forum, I do not speak on behalf of NOSLINA and the calls for a boycott of our National Awards Banquet because of my personal opinions on the APC government is tantamount to blackmail and an attempt by the APC supporters to silent some of us. This is no diferent from what we are hearing the APC government do in Sierra Leone, intimidating civil servants and professionals who supported the SLPP.
Checkt out NOSLINA's webpage and see what the organization stands for.

I have a deep rooted fear of all so-called democratic organisations and organs that were formed during the 1997 fiasco in Sierra Leone. Most of them turned out to be SLPP organs in disguise. 98.1 Radio democracy is one such organ as can be seen during the last elections when Ali Bangura alias "Abdul Akim" used it to spew out some SLPP misleading infos. MODEM (Movement for Democracy ) is another one. NOSLINA is one of them as this Sheku guy has proved here. I advice him to look for another SLPP coated organisation as "EE DON LOOSE DIS WAN YONE LAPPA NA DOW".

They do not have the ability to run such an organization and they have nothing to offer to the country. You just need to look at some of their person progress. Keep up the good work. They are probably trying to kill NOSLINA because you guys were pivotal in defeating the APC sponsored AFRC. Just look at the APC cabinet now you will have a list AFRC who's who. These Northern Tribalists will fail just as most of them have failed in life

The day, Sierra Leone will allow some of you to take active role in politics, is that time the Country will doom for ever. You hardly have love for others who atre not from your region. You bent on destroying everything that sounds good for our people. Your type of journalism is also a disgrace. You are not different from the Rwandese journalists who instigated their tribal brothers to kill innocent people in thatcountry. Why are you trying to hide under NOSLINA?

The President H.E. Dr. Ernest Koroma has invited all Sierra Leoneans to return home and contribute one way or the other to the rebuilding process of the country . If you are a patrotic Sierra Loenean talking all this mess is non-sense . Go home and do something for the country . Writing all this Harvard Booker T Washington english will not solve the problem . Take you expertise to Sierra Leone . We need you guys . We should be happy to have a leader like Ernest Koroma , who has a vision for his people . The APC some years ago is not the APC now . One thing you bunch of loosers fail to realise is that the people then are not the people now . To be specific I meant the leaders then are not the leaders now . Some of you have never done a thing for Sierra Leone . When one does something positive things , you start talking crap . Whoever is in that group is a looser . If you are not in that group , don't pay attention to this .The APC will finish the first five years , Dr. Ernest Koroma will do another five years and the person we are grooming to take his place will do another ten years . This is why everyone is invited to help rebuild the nation . You do not have to be a politician to rebuild . This is your country . You can contribute in any shape of form . If you have nothing to contribute , I will advice those loosers to stay put and shut up because it will not help the country .
A word for the wise is sufficient . Dr. Ernest Koroma just did what Kabba , Demby and Berewa could not do in eleven years . What a shame . Bye .

You have got it backwards, friend. Leigh and Kalloh are tribalists because their words and actions are tribalistic -- not becos they argue with anyone. There are many people who argue with one another and yet that process of argument does not mean one or the other is a tribalist. Take my own case, I am arguing with you now, but do you see me calling you a tribalist? Hopefully, you can see how nonsensical your statement is.

The fact is that when many forumites have said Leigh and Kallon are tribalists, that is just calling the tribalists what they are. Get it? So, please spend more time counselling the two tribalists against tribalism, and less time worrying about perfectly healthy people.

Today being the first day of the trial of Charles Taylor, the disreputable terrorist responsible for messing up the lives of thousands of Sierra Leoneans, I was hoping to find comments and differences in opinion, here and there, regarding this milestone of an event.

I was expecting comments from our usual legal experts here at the forum and from other contributors of good judgment from without, vis-ŗ-vis their opinions regarding the witness testimony, the trial itself, court evidences, or perhaps the power play between the judge, prosecution, and defense during todayís hearings.

Instead, the forum was disappointingly laden with the usual unconstructive display of negative rhetoric charged with personal attacks.

Some even went as low as taking PHD swipes (pull him down swipes) at IT guru Muckson by attempting to downplay the success of his achievements in taking our audience to the corridors of the Hague.

The swipes were unsuccessful but whatís up with the attitude?

Thanks for your information. I just learnt fromt he past when you send money for family to do something with themselves sometimes you dont see the result of the investment. I see it as an investment when I help others. I want to see results. So I am doing everything within my power to avoid the posibility of them thinking about spending the money on other things.

Are you saying that you have a relation at university who cannot manage resources to better his/her future? This is a big problem.All i know is that the fees vary at the uni depending on the faculty. Please contact the head of department of your relation and channel all his affairs through him. This is the best advise. Tell him to give you his phone number.

Alimamy, I don't think it's bad to ask about the best way to help someone back home. Some people have the good will to help others but the very people they help do not help themselves. The problem with them is that people in the US have money. For instance, I am an international student working on my Ph.D. I have a family here to take care of, and other relatives back home. I am paying fees for my younger brother at Njala University College. This boy thinks that I have money. He recently asked me to pay his 'lesson feesí as if he is still in high school. It's embarrassing when people deliberately refuse to understand and lack a sense of moral rectitude. Asking this forum to help solve a problem should not be interpreted as a show off. Please Alimamy if you can't help a fellow Sierra Leonean do not cry him down.

This is not the forum to trumpet your philantropy. If you want to help your relatives, fine. We dont need to be informed about how you go about it. Come to think of it, if I was the guy you wanted to help, I would have gladly done without this your form of helping. You dont even have confidence in your own people. Who will you have confidence in then. It seems you are more concerned with the publicity than the actual aim of helping. Jesus spoke about people like you in the bible. You want everybody to know that you are helping people and in the process you insult them and their integrity as if the people dont know what is good for themselves. Secondly wash your dirty linen somewhere else and not on this forum.

I feel for you. But if you have to do that you are still wasting your money. Any one with the tendency to spend his/her school fees on other things will flunk anyway. To your question; I don't know. All I know is that college fees are paid now directly to the bank. Find out which of the banks FBC fees are paid and see if there is a way to pay directly to the bank.

Sanpha Koroma is a patron member of the SLPP, Johnny Paul Koroma is not. Sanpha Koroma campaigned as a stalwart for the SLPP and gave money to Col Marray Conteh in Kambia. I am personally aware of that because I was in the room when the money changed hands. That was before JS traveled to London for his wife's eye operation. This is a fact.

He is a clever man and such men are needed in this thriving world of financial fortunes Sierra Leone dearly needs to move it upward from the last.

He must be given the chance to improve financial decisions to be made by the President.

First of all Aziz let me correct you; it was not A.B Kamara Ben Kanu refused to hand over to, it was Salia Jusu Sheriff and you know why. Ben Kanu will never refuse to hand over to A.B Kamara. Seondly don't be surprise to see an organization like Rogbaneh Decendants Union springing up. That has always been the norm of people who are inadequate(APC). We have been saying that Bai Bai Koroma is not in control. These are the symptoms. The appointment Serry Kamal as attorney general is a case in point(even when he said no member of parliament will be a minister). Do you know under what circumstaces he did that? Check it out. This government is going to fail. DFID , a major funder to SL has diagnosed corruption so early in this government. Do you know the repercussion? Find out. It is unfortunate that you cannot travel to SL to decipher for yourself. Of course when you leave you cannot come back otherwise you would have been crying for position in this govt.
Anyway BEAR YAH. The Rogbaneh cabal is definitely coming up so just save your breath.
I also understand that Pabs Kanu is sick. He is supposed to. Remember I told him those who play tricks with God will have God's wrath on them. Pabs Kanu told a of lies, banned people from his forum for chidding him. He has been ignored by his patrons now it is God's turn.Broken hearted and frustrated he is. Watch Out!!!

COCORIOKO may show Charles Taylor trial live
Written by Cocorioko Newspaper Limited
Saturday, 05 January 2008
COCORIOKO's technician and I. T Specialist, Mr. Muckson Sesay , is exploring the possibility of having our readers watch the War crimes trial of former Liberian President , Charles Taylor, live on Monday. Talking to the Publisher of this newspaper , Rev. W.L.Kabs-Kanu , Mr. Sesay said it was time for technology to reach every aspect of Sierra Leone journalism.
The Liberian leader was indicted by the Sierra Leone Special Court for war crimes and crimes against humanity as a result of his alleged support for the rebel group, the Revolutionary United Front ( RUF ) , which triggered the Sierra Leone war that killed over 50, 000 people and left a completely destroyed infrastructure behind.

We will bring you more details soon and will confirm by Sunday if Muckson Sesay can pull it off.

Unfortunately it is too late to change him now. I guess a Ruda who is almost 60 is a ruda for life! What a shame.

If you want to opt out of the forum you are welcome to do so Mr. Concerned Forumite. Naming people on this forum is a form of personal threat and indecent way of presenting a complaint. You intentions and suggestion has no merit. This is why we want some of you Mr. concerned forumite to stay way form this. You do not seem to have the basic principles of intellectual dialogue. There is something like freedom of speech. Do not silence the orator. The truth is a bitter pill which no one wants to swallow. Keep voicing your candid and mature opinion, because some failed diplomats wanted to sell the ambassadorís lodge at Colorado Avenue in washing DC; during the real-estate boom in the US.

For decency sake, give this John Leigh obsession a break! Or is there some inferiority complex of some sort at play here? Sit up and think for a minute.

Londoner,
This moniker addict will not listen to reason. He has sneered at the admonition of many decent forumites, including nearly the entire Cocorioko staff, for him to take a break from his vendetta against John Leigh and other forumites. All to no avail. Infact, the more he is cautioned, the more invectives he unloads. He probably has more 'enemies' than monikers. The only thing decent forumites can do is continue to ignore his bellicosity and focus on the common good. Let's remember that this fellow, for all his faults, is still a fellow sierra Leonean. He may be sick in the head but he is our own sick fambul. Meh God gee am sober merecin.

Starting today, I hope that you will take an oath never to attack or humiliate other people who may disagree with your assertions. And also promise all of us -long-suffering forumites- that you will no longer view a verbal slap at you as an an attack on all Fulas. That is just sheer megalomania and mischief my luminous friend.

We need your wisdom to guide us, the younger folks on this forum, and help us become productive patriots of Sierra Leone. Please no more foolish talk of Mende tribalists, anti-Fula tribalism etc, etc. We are a new generation of Sierra Leoneans trying to unite our country from the ruins of civil war. Please stop pouring petrol on tribal fires. We baig sah!
Please continue to be of service to our beloved Sierra Leone and kindly endeavour to restrain yourself from clogging this beautiful forum with all the vendetta junk you so love. We look forward to your elderly wisdom and understanding as we look for solutions to our country's problems. Please allow us to do that without the onery of having to swim through the psychosis of your various complexes.
May God continue to bless you and yours.

SGK, you are so right. Ahmed Koroma that calls himself Stokes is suffering from that disease that the few loudmouths on this forum suffer from.

It was John Musa the learned lawyer that now serves in President Koroma's state house that first diagnosed that diserase among those few Sa Leoneans. Today, we know it as Ph.D (Pull Him Down). But back in 2001 when John Musa first saw it in the likes of everlasting juveniles like Ahmed Koroma, this is what John said:

Whenever Mr. Jalloh bests these pests with his logical arguments, they turn to character assasination, instead of learning from the man.

So it was with Ahmed Koroma in 2001 on Leonenet. And, of course, being PNP (pikin nar pikin), so it continues to be with him as Fen Plaba seven years in 2008 on Cocorioko.

My advice is to treat the untrained pikin with more fake monikers than a conman for what he is -- PNP. Remember, a fool never changes.

Setting a streaming infrastructure is fairly simple, and for your information, I and Cocorioko are capable enough to stream our parliament sessions and broadcast those images across the web if given the option.

Now let me tell you Mr. Salone Police, Streaming technology is not a rocket science technology, cameras capture the images and save these images in a SPECIFIC file format in the server, then render these files to the web, simple!

Now what SCSL did is that, they gave everyone the access to these files without restrictions.
Next time ask how it is done, but donít criticize

Mr Sesay...streaming is not exactly as you describe it.

Please elaborate on the "SPECIFIC" file format you are talking about.

As I understand it, just putting a bunch of video files on your web server and allowing people to play / view / download them is not the accurate definition of streaming technology. It is more than that. You also have to differentiate between live streaming and on demand (podcasting).

It appears that you do not take too kindly to criticism, which is odd for a person in technology. I know you are on the cusp of emerging technology, but from your efforts on the Cocorioko site, which in my view sucks, due to the power of the technology the site is based on, you are still learning a lot.

The images and adverts on the right side of the page do not fit the background size of the module position to which they are published, but has been that way forever. You could simply change the template_css.css file to increase the size of that column to accomodate the sizes you want and reduce the size of the center body which has some space to give. The template you are using even provided a tutorial to create images for the right modules, but it doesn't seem that you took advantage of them, or cannot be bothered to be professional about the images you publish. Afterwards, we wouldn't know the difference right?

Stop acting like people cannot ask questions or occasionally criticize your work or we really wil, and what will you do then?

My advise, be open to criticism, and you might learn a lot from others who only care about technology and sharing knowledge.

Iíve decided not to reply on the pretext that you are making criticisms, just a point of correction, I am not a designer; Iím working as a .net developer with EDS Canada. You might ask why I decided to use php? Well, I am using joomla, that is the language they used, secondly you might asked why not using dotnetnuke, Again the company I host my websites that gives me a very good deal does not support DNN. Instead they support phpnuke.
Cocorioko newspaper is not my strength in developing software, because that is a CMS. I am just helping after I learnt about them in 2007, and saw that they are stacked with Homestead, I provided them the template the same way I did for standard Times and Exclusive Press. I could create a cnn.com or bbc.com like interface, but that is another story.
I am not stopping anyone to make his/ her own contribution, there are many Developer out there, we could come together and developer software for our country. Software for police vehicle tracking system, hospitals and so on, the forum is not a classroom to discuss subject matter, letís put things to work. We all have our own unique ways of contributing. There are many newspapers in Sierra Leone that need your help, come on board and bring Sierra Leone message outside world.

I hope this is my last post. I can only post back when you guys are ready to work and stop talking..

Thanks for the clarification. Homestead was terrible. In the past, I have helped with this site. I stopped offering to directly help because I feel that the site lost its objectivity, became partisan, and never acknowledged the fact.

That aside, I'm only writing to you because I see a fellow Sierra Leonean working to make a change with technology and I wanted to help make your work better with constructive criticism.

I've worked on many sites in Sierra Leone, but choose not to list them in line with agreements with the Sierra Leone companies I've worked with. I will contact you via other sources, and we can talk about technology then.

I'm currently working on a Sierra Leone project that will be launching soon. Stay tuned..

I simply rebuked Mr Sesay for telling someone off when they legimately criticized him. I even offered him advice, after telling him why I thought the site sucked. He has done good work, all I'm saying is that it could be better and point out how.

If you check the threads, I have made it a point to make sure I always point out errors, and provide information to remedy what I point out.

Trust me, I have done a lot for Sierra Leone lately, and continue to do so. I work on a daily basis with people in Sierra Leone and share my technical expertise and resources with them.

PHD syndrome is where you cry someone down, and offer nothing to help or make better what you are criticizing.

I think it is time we make each other better by providing objective feedback and not stick with that mentality where even when we see something that can be made improved upon, we prefer to shut up, because we are country folk, and would rather settle for mediocre products and services, than face the possibilty of hurting someone's feeling even though we could gain by being candid.

The topic of this thread was the technology behind streaming the trial video. Unless I'm mistaken, you must be talking of the wrong thread, or finding a way not to address the points I raised.

Anyway, to answer your question, I think Taylor's trial is just a symbolic measure on the part of the world to send a message to those dictators whom they have financed and who then chose to go their own ways, that they would be disgraced and allowed to be brought to justice if they do not tow the line.

Charles Taylor was bad and deserves worse than he is getting now, but that is the world. There were a lot of people who died because of him and a lot of others, who are now jittery, hoping he will not call names. A guilty verdict and a long sentence (which is probably all he will get), will not make up for all the lives lost, destruction, and mayhem he caused in the sub-region.
A real trial will be that of Gaddafi, who trained and armed Taylor's NPFL and Sankoh's RUF.

The only thing worse than the idle brain being the devil's playground is a mende tribalist with an idle brain and an active, malicious imagination. That is the ccocorioko samba gutter mot-mot failure for you -- a failed diplomat, a failed politician, an unfit ambassador to the USA, and lastly, the flip-flopping abuser at first, then later supporter, of Solo Berewa.

First, the kekway wannabe politician cursed Berewa when he failed to get the SLPP leadership. Then he tried and failed to get the PMDC leadership. Of course -- you guessed it -- he started cursing Charles Margai who beat him when he failed to getbthe PMDC leadership. Feeling the reality of his many failures, he went back to lie down and beg Berewa to take him back after he had cursed Berewa as not fit to be leader.

Just like he is now saying Fulas are the best in Salone after he had abused the Fullahs.

But, of course, the man with failure written all ovcer him thgroughout his life, again failed when Berewa lost the SLPP election, due in part to the failure's rudeness and lies against Charles margai, the SLPP killer at the polls.

So you see the cocorioko tribalistic failure helped to make the SLPP become a national failure like him in 2007.

Ghana opened its first diamond cutting school in an effort to add value to its diamond exports.

According to the Ghana News Agency, the Natural Diamond Training Institute was established in Accra to teach Ghanaians basic skilling including: identification of raw diamonds; cutting; polishing; separation, assortment and grading of diamonds.

Raj Maheswaran, director of the institute, told GNA that students were also being taught diamond marketing skills and were being equipped to establish their own companies.

The institute runs a two-month intensive course for senior secondary school graduates and is open to students from the West Africa Sub Region.

Ghana exports all its diamonds mined cutting and polishing abroad. The country mined 972,647.88 carats of diamonds valued at $30.9 million in 2006, according to the latest Kimberley Process statistics.

From Police Brutality in Kono to Rogbaneh Descendants Union!

Mohamed Aziz Nabe, president of the New Jersey Chapter of the All Peopleís Congress weighs in on the recent unfortunate events in Kono and the formation of the Rogbaneh Descendants Union


It is a shame to learn about the abysmal ignorance of the Sierra Leone Police Force in handling such issues. The fact that they as Sierra Leoneans do not think like Sierra Leoneans who have the country's interest at heart is very disturbing. These BANDITS who posed as Diamond Magnates are simple criminals and illicit miners whom the SLPP/ Kabbah government work in partnership to pilfer the mineral resources of the country for their own selfish ends. You can see why the country was bankrupt and poverty was boldly written on the faces of majority of the citizens of Sierra Leone during their tenure of office.

For just little stipends given to the Chief Police Officers by these rogue illicit miners they could unleash dreadful treatment to their compatriots, causing deaths and bodily harm with no sense of remorse. I think this is a test case for President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma to prove to his people that he can protect and defend them and their properties by all means necessary. The fact that he had instituted a committee of competent Sierra Leoneans headed by Lawyer Jenkins-Johnston is a good step in the right direction. I am hopeful that they will not take bribes from those yahoos and smear their reputations. I am suggesting that a presidential decree be passed by his Excellency the President to halt all mining activities of the ROGUE Mining Company that is involved in this mess immediately and to freeze all their assets in Sierra Leone ( if any ) and to revoke their contract if found wanting. In fact all mining contracts signed by the inept SLPP government should be revisited and corrected where necessary. Mining contracts and licenses be re-examined and strengthened for the common good of the country, the government and its people. Enough damage had been caused over the years by dint of greed, negligence and apathy .by subsequent governments that were imposed on the people. This government is the peopleís choice for the first time in history. Let it be seen to work in the interest of the people and the country.

I would like to draw the attention of the President to certain inconvenient truths. All of us are very happy beyond measure for his success in bringing back the APC Party to power - a party that was overthrown within itself by co-opted members of the other PARTY that formed the infamous ONE PARTY SYSTEM. Terrible mistakes were made during that time which brought fatal and lethal consequences. One of them was complacency and tribal or ethnic rivalry. At the midst of that sad and unfortunate situation, you had a leader (or was he?) who wanted to please everybody especially members of his own tribe. Themselves, knowing his soft spots, misused the opportunity and engaged in infighting and tribal hegemony. Hedonism became the order of the day. I am fore-seeing a similar situation stealthily crawling to engulf his presidency. The last APC President and the APC Party of yore were EKUTAYLIZED and it became apparent that anyone seeking any favors from the President or his cabal has to join the Ekutay Limba Tribal Organization. You could see the arrogance of power openly displayed by certain members of this all powerful Ekutay Organization. My dear countrymen and women, this narrative is just a hazy recollection of an incident that had long past. It was a matter that ensued between the then Minister of the Interior Hon. A.B. Kamara and the then Minister of Trade and Industry Hon. Ben Kanu for the position of acting 2nd Vice President. Hon. A.B.Kamara was in all categories senior for Hon. Ben Kanu. Hon. A.B.Kamara was acting 2nd Vice President. In the absence of the !st Vice President he was sworn to act as 1st Vice President and Hon. Ben Kanu was sworn to act as 2nd Vice President. On the return of the substantive 1st Vice President, Hon. Ben Kanu refused to relinquish his position to Hon. A.B.Kamara who was the actual acting 2nd Vice President. This was simply because he was a bona fide member of the all powerful EKUTAY Organization. It was a big deal for Hon. Ben Kanu with all the trimmings of arrogance of power and political banditry. I am reminding the President and concerned citizens of Sierra Leone that those sad days and their occurrences should not be allowed to repeat in this present instance. The president should understand that he cannot please everybody. Any attempt to do so is a recipe for outright failure. And that is not an option at all.

The sudden formation of the ROGBANEH DESCENDANTS UNION in Makeni in the BOMBALI District is a great cause for concern. We have the all powerful Bombali District Association of which the President was a founding member in 1978 when we formed it to answer to the philosophy of self-help initiated by the Doyen of pragmatic political consciousness in Sierra Leone His Excellency the late S.I.Koroma. (May His Soul Rest in Peace). Throughout the fight for the Leadership of the APC Party and its eventual coming back to power, we had deliberately refused to associate the Bombali Association with the Ernestomatic Campaign Trail. Simple reason was to avoid the Bombalization of the APC party as it was in the case of the Ekutay and the Momoh Regime and the APC of yore. WE did not want to encourage tribal or regional hegemony in order not to repeat the mistakes of our elder brothers that were in power during the Momoh and Ekutay years. We Members of the Bombali District Association and children of the Makeni Sebora Township and its environs do not subscribe to this idea of a Rogbaneh Descendants Union, and we do admonish the President not to encourage such a divisive protocol. I know members of this group especially those who initiated the idea will be peevish when they shall have read my comments. But the fact of the matter is, we have to be honest and be bold to say the inconvenient truth even if it concerns you or your loved ones. It is self evident that Truth exalts itself and exhorts those who say it. I can sense subterranean motives beneath the formation of the Rogbaneh Descendants Union at this point in time when we just have our ever loving President who was fortunate to have hailed from Rogbaneh section of the Makeni Township. If those of us from Manikala and those from Mabanta or Romankneh form their own Unions, would that sound right? I don't think so. Therefore, let us all join hands together and strengthen the Bombali Descendants Association now that we have the presidency and power so that we could serve as watch dogs against the misuse of and arrogance of power for a better and functional leadership. This is our time and this is our president. We have to help him succeed for the sake of all Sierra Leoneans in his quest to making Sierra Leone a Nation where everybody is somebody; with respect and equal opportunities for all and sundry, one's tribe or ethnicity notwithstanding.

The struggle will continue unabated until our toxic attitudes are changed for the progress of Sierra Leone .WE should always remember that OUR Altitude is Our Attitude and if we can only change the way we look at people, the people we look at will change. Happy New Year and positive attitude by everyone in this year of a new and vibrant leadership in the country that we love, Our Sierra Leone!

Wow! Bra Nabe did it. I am impressed with the position of Mr. Nabe and may I hastily state
the swanky calibration of his integrity and patriotism. I always believe EBK is seasoned
enough to deal with constructive criticism. Forumites, Mr. Nabe was the lead member of
the revered APC Rapid Response Team during the past elections that accomplished an
admirable and essential undertaking. However, Mr. Nabe is humanized when he embraced
the Bombali Descendant Association as the ideal association for his Excellency.

Wrong, wrong move. EBK is neither the president of Bombali, Makeni, Rogbane nor any
segment of the Bombali District. EBK is the president of Sierra Leone; any attempt to
convince him to align with THESE groups from Bombali is a wrong move. Albeit, I believe
Bra Nabeís heart is in the right place, but the mind may be wavering. Great piece!!!!!!!!

Good points raised here by Mr. Nabe. However, I sense some hyprocrisy in the article. Mr. Nabe seems to be promoting and endorsing the Bomboli Descendants Association just because that's the group he (Nabe) belongs to. It would seem that Mr. Nabe's main objective is not patriotism but the fear of competition. Nabe thinks the formation of Rogbaneh Descendants Union will take away EBK's attention from BDA where Nabe is member. Apart from that diversion, I think the article if great!

The government should be thinking creatively about how to resolve this situation rather than raising the price of rice to what you call "the international market." Food has dethroned many a government. President Koroma must be wary and bring into check the rising prices.

What a Rip-Off as Alpha Kanu's Office Demands Money from People Who Want to Keep Their Jobs.
1.05.2008
He gained notoriety for scamming would be pilgrims. He would organize pilgrimage tours but the pilgrims would never get to their destination - Mecca. Alpha Kanu's and his dupesters would always leave the pilgrims stranded at some foreign airport. That man is Alpha Kanu, the man who is just a heart beat away from the presidency and still maintains the position of the sweet-talker and charmer in the APC government.

Well, his reputation, it seems has not quite left him. He is an astute business man, alright, but a man who has made a fortune off scamming potential victims who are normally helpless in withstanding his schemes.

So it is with the latest schemes. With the APC's policy of rampant sackings of anyone perceived as being syampathetic in the past to the SLPP, Alpha Kanu has started his new scamming spree by preying on the fears of those persons who do not want to lose their jobs.

The New People investigator decided to prove the truth to this new scheme. This is how it works. A senior civil servant receives an anonymous telephone call from someone who represents himself as a staff member in Alpha Kanu's office. The caller informs the senior official that he has seen his name on a list on Alpha Kanu's desk of civil servants who are to be sent on leave or fired from their positions. The caller then offers an appointment to the senior civil servant to speak to Alpha Kanu so that that official's name is removed from the finalised list before it is forwarded to the president for approval.

The senior official is told that he can avoid his potential sacking if he brings Le7million to Alpha Kanu's office by the time of his appointment. Once the official deposits the money, he is given brief audience with Alpha kanu. The entire appointment between Alpha Kanu and the official usually lasts about 5-10 minutes during which the official is told that there is now a new government in power and that every senior official must endeavour to be loyal to the new administration and take the country forward. Alpha Kanu ends the meeting by giving the senior civil servant a personal complimentary card with Alpha Kanu's cellular phone number asking the senior official to call Alpha Kanupersonally if anything of interest arises that the APC government should know about.

This blatant political patronage and bribe-taking flies in the face of what President Koroma has been talking about -transparency and decency in politics. Now unemployed, a former senior official who lost his job even though he paid the required Le7million bribe to Alpha Kanu decided to inform The New People of this new APC scam and he challenges Hon. Alpha Kanu's office to make a public press statement disproving these cogent allegations..

I thank God for letting Hon. Alpha Kanu prove me right. During the last elections, I told the Sierra Leonean public that Hon. Kanu is only in the politics of our country to enrich himself at the detriment of the whole nation. He has nothing to offer our country.
It was very funny to me, when I heard president Koroma assuring the nation that he will militate against corruption. How would he fight corruption with Kemoh Sesay and Alpha Kanu(both men have proved themselves to be corrupt) in his team?.
I know 95% of the people in the APC leadership/Koroma administration very well, they do not have the moral authority to lead, therefore, they will surely fail.

More than Sheku Kallon, I think that directly impacts Sierra Leone, and I would advocate to change that for the sake of the country and for the sake of democracy.

Some of us are way too intelligent and objective. Tell us what is not true about what the paper is saying because I am just back from Sierra Leone and I personally bought bags of rice for higher prices. I think the government can control that , even if by reducing the customs duties on rice and to set the price and make it cheaper and affordable for the common man. But people are suffering.

Kabs encourages opposing views in his news outlets and publishes articles that are critical of him in his own news media.

The cocorioko news has for a period of time been the most reliable and dependable source of news and information for Sierra Leoneans at large.

His news media provides a prompt and up to date news and analysis at times when most news outlets can only scarmpled to obtain news.

As a diabetic myself I wish and pray for his speedy recovery.

It is only ignorant people like you that can say these trash on this media. You use half truths to hoodwink people who dont know about what is happening. From what you posted, I can tell that you know virtually nothing of the RSLAF. Do you know how many soldiers the SLPP killed and gave the sack during their rule. The army was 17,000 at the end of the war. As of now they are only 10,000. So you can now do the maths. In December 2005. 77 officers were sacked for no good reason. Up till now the criteria that was used is stil not known within the military.
For the past seven years, all sort of terminologies were used to sideline and dehmanise the soldiers of Sierra Leone. You never said a single word. I dont even know what you mean by the gains made by IMATT. Ask every single Sierra Leonean soldier and they will give you the true meaning of IMATT. For your information, the 2000 soldiers you are talking about is one of the plans of IMATT. You can crosscheck with them if you think it is a lie. The SLPP was afraid to carry out in December 2006 because of the impact it would have had on the elections. If you were following the utterances of Joe Blell and Brig Nelson Williams over the past two years, you would have known that. That would have been better than opening your mouth to talk rubbish just because most people on this forum dont know much about the army. Mind you that is a subject that I can take any one of you on.

The report is true. President Koroma spoke to the military two weeks back and Maj Pallor has put in place demobilisation teams that will prepare the servicemen and women for demobilisation.

So, yes, APC plans to cut the army by 2000. I think this is sensitive - in fact too sensitive and it is the same mistake Tejan Kabbah made. If the president wants to cut down on expenditure, he should reduce his cabinet, reduce the number of press attaches and special assistants it has apointed and pays in dollars, and reduce government waste and inefficiency in all areas.

CULLED FROM THE PATRIOTIC VANGUARD OF CANADA
EDITOR : GIBRIL GBANABOME KOROMA


Health problems create obstacles for Cocorioko editor
- Sunday 6 January 2008.
By Our Correspondent.


The editor of the COCORIOKO online newspaper , Rev. Wilfred Leeroy Kabs-Kanu , has still not taken up his appointment as Director of Communications at State House in Freetown due to deteriorating health.

A long time sufferer of cardiovascular ailments after a minor heart attack in Liberia in 1988 , Kabs, as he is fondly known, has now been diagnosed with diabetes and kidney problems .

His physician, Dr. Hans Gandhi , has advised against travelling to Sierra Leone just yet , because of his medical problems .

"I am very determined to serve my country and my people.I am thankful to President Ernest Koroma for giving me the opportunity to serve my country. I am ready to undetake any sacrifice to leave the diaspora and go to Sierra Leone to serve my country .However, my health has not made it possible for me to leave now as Dr. Gandhi has discovered more problems with me, which in his opinion, will endanger my life in a third world country without the American type of speedy and reliable health care delivery services ", Kabs stated today .

In an exclusive interview with the PATRIOTIC VANGUARD he revealed that the cost of medication alone is very high, even with his insurance. After the insurance has paid its own part , he has a co-payment of over $300 monthly for his heart, high blood pressure, diabetes and kidney medications , which he is required to take everyday.

Without insurance , he will have to spend up to $700 for these drugs. He will lose his insurance when he resigns from his teaching job in the U.S . to take up his job in Sierra Leone. The first question is whether these drugs are available in Sierra Leone and how much they will cost without insurance. The second is what emergency and urgent medical facilities are available in Sierra Leone in the event of an emergency.

Kabs(pictured) also informed PV that he has written President Ernest Koroma to inform him about his medical problems and his doctorís advice.

He said he is determined to set up a communication system for President Koroma that will be second to none and the envy of other West African nations, but it looks like he needs plenty of time first to bring his health to par.

Looking at his health problem, I suggest Reverence stays in New Jersey, and serve the Nation/APC in his present capacity, or perhaps seek an appointment in the mission in New York or Washington DC.Medical facilities in Freetown may not be enough to provide emergency treatments for such cases.An adivise in good faith.

Well, Kabbs should go home and subject himself to those doctors at Connaught that got their degrees from third World countries and dont have any mal practice insurance. Maybe he would call on the services of Dr Sylvia Blyden.

This is not a Kabs problem this is a diasporian problem. This is the very reason Sierra Leone is not presently on my husband and my list of retirement destinations. The truth is that none of us is getting any younger and quality healthcare is a major issue. How is Sierra Leone going to be able to attract and retain its best and brightest without a good healthcare system. That means modernizing its hospitals, access to medication, and trained hospital personnel.

Maybe Kabs should be able to answer that. Kabs and his comrades did not choose the personnel they have now because of qualifications. Most of them were chosen because they were from the North and because of how much money they paid.
