I thank you for attempting to broker peace between self and Sidi Sheriff. I hold no grudge against Sidi or his morally and criminally insane mentor. My bone with Sidi is his lies told against me on this forum. The 'squander of colossal funds' from organisations I was involved. How can he be so ridiculous to believe the stories of his friends (my detractors) whom because of envy are bent on seeing me in get into trouble. I cut my trip short and I am back home. I will respond to Sidi and submit the information he requested I submit to back my claims. I will do so today. Once more I thank you for your thoughtful insights to see peacev reign. Others are happy seeing what is happening. May God give you peace all your life.

Son of Kambia to 2 Kambians : Let there be peace PDF Print E-mail
Written by Cocorioko Newspaper Limited
Thursday, 14 February 2008
------------------------------------------------------
I am completely appalled by the unrhythmic exchanges between two sons of Kambia-Sidi Sherrif and Winnakabs over issues of identity.These are two brothers according to tradition who should not wash their dirty linens in public, in the guise of protecting and disrobing AO Conteh respectively.

Politics is a dirty game and goes with resilience in withstanding public pressure and criticism.It is common knowledge that in africa the longer you stay in politics the deeper the grudge you nurture for your self,more so if you cannot share your political booty to everyone during your tenure.Those whose toes you stepped on are your future rivals always ready to rewrite your history.

Winnakabs is bitter and would always connect his nasty struggle towards success with the AO Conteh's
malignant action against his father. Sidi,who is thinking beyond a one-off cruel action against Winnakab's relations is determined to restrain him,but in the machiavellian style that provokes a war of words.AO the man in the crossfire, cannot tamper with the facts of history.He may rely on his few direct sympathisers like Sidi to detonate the 'bombs'planted by his enemies.That is normal.Like any politician during the old APC,AO will continue to be a victim of objective and subjective criticism from those he assisted and those who became victims of his alleged predatory leadership.

Nevertheless, as a son of Kambia my self,I call on these illustrious sons of the soil to stop the fight.A house divided against it self can never stand.

Fraternal greetings to all,
Mohamed Dumbuya

Thanks! You have to send your article or piece to cococrioko and from there it is selected for publication. I sent one two nights ago in response to sidi's allegations against me - I believe it did not meet the criteria for publication onto the newspaper. That is fine by me and I will not complain. To reply to the peacemaker's article, I thought it wise not to send it through the newspaper channel but the forum which i believe the peacemaker visits. Thanks all the same for your direction if I got you right!!

WORLD BANK DOUBTS: Can ‘Koroma Electricity’ Be Sustained?

Wednesday, February 13, 2008 - The World Bank has warned that the agreement with an Independent Power Producer to provide 25 megawatts electricity for Freetown will cost Sierra Leone over $5million a month and has questioned whether the agreement is sustainable.

Permanent Secretary
Ministry of Energy and Power of Sierra Leone
Electricity House - Floor 4

Dear Dr. Bockari,
I write with reference to your letter of January 14, 2008, in which you have explained your reasons for engaging in contracts with two Independent Power Producers (PPs) and shared the contracts with us. Let me start by re-emphasizing that the World Bank recognizes the importance to Sierra Leone of the development of the power sector, and we are also aware that this is a top priority for the current Government.

In response, we have restructured the World Bank’s existing Power and Water Project, resulting in the competitive procurement of 15MW of emergency IPP power supplied under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the Global Trading Group (GTG)..

This intervention is viewed as a bridging arrangement until the arrival of Bumbuna power to Freetown as low-cost hydropower is the only sustainable solution given the high cost of diesel-based solutions. Unfortunately, since two new IPP arrangements -- the Electricity Generation Contract with Income electric Ltd. (IEL) and the Joint Venture Agreement (JVA) with the Delamore and Owl Group/Emieola Group (D&E) -- were entered into without prior consultations with the World Bank, we were not able to provide you with technical advice.

We cannot, in the present circumstances, interfere with these existing contractual relations. But now that these two agreements have been signed, our concerns and requests for further clarifications in regard to those agreements relate to the implications of these deals for overall the development of the power sector, their implication for the fiscal situation, and their potential impacts on good governance (especially procurement procedures).

The World Bank has warned that the agreement with an Independent Power Producer to provide 25 megawatts electricity for Freetown will cost Sierra Leone over $5million a month and has questioned whether the agreement is sustainable.

Unnecessarily expensive.
On February 4, 2008, World Bank representative Ishac Diwan wrote to the Ministry of Energy and Power noting that while the institution was committed to temporary ‘bridging’ arrangements until Bumbuna comes on line, he felt the agreements with IPP’s (Independent Power Producers) were un-necessarily expensive.millions in fuel
The two new IPP arrangements with Income Electrix Ltd and Delamore Owl/Emeiola Group had, he noted, been signed without ‘prior consultations’ with the World Bank.


He noted that the IFL contract would cost government $52 million a year of which $44 million alone would be required for fuel.
Mr. Diwan also claims that the idea of NPA buying all of the IPP’s power capacity would create extra costs.
An earlier agreement with the Global Trading Group, which the World Bank supervised, has no such contractual clause.


The World Bank says the costs to NPA were unsustainable - unless tariffs for NPA power were immediately doubled and up to 250 NPA workers laid off.


We were unable to contact Energy and Power Minister Haja Afsatu Kabba before we went to press (full analysis next issue). On this basis, we have started analysing the financial implications of the new IPPs. We have also compared, but only for illustrative purposes, some of the key provisions of these arrangements with the provisions in the GTG contract. As already agreed with you and the Honourable Minister of Energy, during my recent visit, our upcoming missions will explore the various avenues of support discussed above, and will address the proposal sector investment plan as well.

We are very mindful of the strategic importance of the development of the power sector and we look forward to deepening our partnership with the Government in the realization of that objective.

To sample a Qur'anic rhetorical commonplace, I have to ponder: "What explains the dissing of our President by the posting that refers to the democratically elected President of the sovereign people of Sierra Leone as "O'BAI"? (See my earlier posting "The name of the President.") The President cannot defend his honor under the circumstances. Thus, I shall humbly assume his burden.

Ye who posited the posting, repeat after me:

THE PROPER WAY TO ADDRESS OUR ESTEEMED PRESIDENT IS: HIS EXCELLENCY, THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SIERRA LEONE, Dr. ERNEST BAI KOROMA.

Isn't that a far cry from the infinite dissing diminutive "O'BAI"? How about a little RESPECT for the FATHER of the nation, to steal a word from Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul.

As the debate intensifies between the for or against the bondo society, is cocorioko using fake pictures to bolster one side's arguement? I may not be a professional photographer to interpret a picture perfectly, but you don't have to be a professional photographer to know the authenticity of this picture. I think cocorioko may have knowingly or unknowingly used the wrong picture in their latest article about the demostration of the sowei group in sierra leone.
I may be naive here, but the picture of a woman given water from a rubber cooler which cocorioko claims after a painful FGM process seems fake.
The background of the picture indicate a clinic. The suppose to be patient seems to be pregnant and their is nurse uniform on the background. A nice bed is clearly seen. It is likely this patient is in labor or suffering from malaria as the common sickness in Africa. :)
I have never seen such a modern Bondo society house like this. 99% of the bondo society houses I have seen do not have nice bed or nurse uniform. Is cocorioko's picture intentional trying to show that some of these practices have nurses to perform the act or are they trying to show the horible part of this practice? In any way cocorioko is the loser because this picture have put their credibility and sincerity to the debate into question mark.
So cocorioko did you verify this picture before you made your claim?

When the Umpire tells you thay you guys are dumd and stupid, you get mad, but people like the Umpire must have weighed you jokers on the scale before describibg you as dumb.Don't you know that Bondo has become so widespread in Africa, it is done in clinics in SOME COUNTRIES (like Ethiopia and Egypt )and in homes, even in Sierra Leone ? Have you not read about parents who carry their kids to clinics to be circumcized ? Do you not know that even in Freetown some Bondo initiation is done at home ? Fulah Town and Fourah Bay people , for example, perform a form of Bondo known as Suna at home . My girlfriend was initiated at home during a summer vacation. Why would Cocorioko fake a picture when there are so many grotesque ones than this ? You guys are dumb niggers.

I think the name you give yourself actually fits your perona. You still do not understand the differences between Bondo and FGM. Please tell me which language your can understand so I can explain in it. It just like sayiing Male circumcision and poro society are one and the same. A friendly advise, do not start throwing punches on people when you have no idea what you are talking about. Besides, I will not be forced into punch throwing with anyone in this forum. I am putting my little ideas across the forum and if you want me to go into a fight, you got the wrong warrior bro.

That's a good question that I expect people to ask. Well, I have indeed went to those houses several times when I was a young boy. This is why I know about the society more. Do you know the bondu can allow some members of the poro society to go into their houses?
You may be surprised to know that these cultural societies are well organized like a government. Every group needs an alliance. Some members of the other or opposit societies serve as ambassadors to each other. There are also some sowei that can go into the Poro society bush.
Yes, I know this might be a surprise to many who did not know. In poro society, the Yambas and Rakkas are allowed to go to Bondo houses deep into where the new initiates are sleeping. So bra don't be surprised if I talk about this society. I know it very well. However, this does not mean I support some of their initiation practices. I am more of a neutral person at this point. In my previous postings I was just trying to point out the differences between FGM and Bondo which many people are confused with.

The hubris of philosphers and lawyers is exactly the inverse of their 'wisdom' and their 'prudence.'

Philosophers. Lovers of wisdom? A greater and more dangerous lie does not exist. Lovers of tyrants, I say. Who can forgive Plato? Who can forgive Augustine, the African Church Father? Certainly, not Plato, not to mention the ugly Socrates. Philosophy corrupted Europeans, thanks to the mediation of the cultural baggage of "Classical Antiquity" by the Catholic Church Fathers. Europe suffers from this fateful mediation, thanks to Justinian's Christian inspired coup d'etat. Glory to Rome! Roman vigor, wickedness, barbarism. The Roman barbarians even conquered our colonial masters: the British. Damn Rome.

And Roman jurisprudence, the motor of modern lawyerly sophistry. Precedent, hair splitting distinctions of no moment, slippery slopes argumetative tropes, argument under the circumstances, all these and worse constitute the tools of lawyering. Pristine nonsense. Edmund Burke is a nihilist, is he not?

I prefer the bush. Should I adopt Rousseau? Yes, I will: primitivism trumps 'civilization' anytime and everywhere.

Counter-arguments? None will issue; expect invectives, and is that not an a sign of a soul tormented?

KURTZ, J. - Mohamed A. Jalloh sued Trina Anderson for damages
allegedly caused by the collision of their vehicles. The jury found Ms.
Anderson was negligent, but was not the proximate cause of Mr. Jalloh's
injuries. He appeals, contending the court erred by refusing to give his
proximate cause instruction. He further contends the court erred by
excluding certain evidence and in making its cost award. We reverse the
judgment and remand for a new trial.
FACTS

On November 22, 1989, Mohamed A. Jalloh's car was struck from behind by a
second car, driven by Trina Anderson. Mr. Jalloh was slowly pulling off
Main Street in Colfax, Washington, in order to park, when Ms. Anderson's
car hit his rear bumper. Ms. Anderson was not injured, and her car was not
damaged. Mr. Jalloh initially appeared unhurt but sometime later went to
an emergency room, complaining of neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches and a
tingling sensation.
Earlier that year, Mr. Jalloh was involved in another car accident, and
later he was involved in two other accidents. For all of these accidents,
Mr. Jalloh has claimed similar physical injuries and economic losses.
The case was tried before a jury and Mr. Jalloh represented himself. The
court gave an instruction on proximate cause to which Mr. Jalloh objected.
He contended that the court should have also given 6 Washington Pattern
Jury Instructions: Civil 12.04, at 127 (3rd ed. 1989) (WPI), which contains
additional instruction regarding proximate cause and focuses upon injury
caused by more than one proximate cause.
During trial, the court refused to allow admission of a bill of sale for
Mr. Jalloh's car. He wanted to introduce the document because he contended
that Ms. Anderson fraudulently altered the bill, and that her insurance
agent surreptitiously purchased the car. The court ruled that this
evidence was irrelevant.
The jury found that while Ms. Anderson was negligent in the accident, she
was not the proximate cause of Mr. Jalloh's injuries. The court awarded
Ms. Anderson her costs on October 20. The award included a cost of $87.15,
representing 15 percent of the cost of Mr. Jalloh's deposition, and $92,
representing an appearance fee and mileage for two trips by a defense
witness. Thereafter, Mr. Jalloh moved to retax costs awarded to Ms.
Anderson. He moved for reconsideration, which the court accepted as a
motion for a new trial, and denied.
Mr. Jalloh appeals.
ANALYSIS

Mr. Jalloh contends the court erred in giving jury instruction number 11
without giving an additional instruction proposed by him. Instruction
number 11 read:
The term "proximate cause" means a cause which in a direct sequence,
unbroken by any new independent cause, produces the injury complained of
and without which such injury would not have happened.

This instruction is apparently based on WPI 15.01, but it fails to include
optional language informing the jury that an injury or event may have one
or more proximate causes.1
Mr. Jalloh argues the court should have also given his
proposed instruction regarding proximate cause:
There may be more than one proximate cause of the same alleged injury.
If you find that the defendant was negligent and that such negligence was a
proximate cause of injury or damage to the plaintiff, it is not a defense
that the act of some other person who is not a party to this lawsuit may
also have been a proximate cause.
However, if you find that the sole proximate cause of the injury or
damage to the plaintiff was the act of some other person who is not a party
to this lawsuit then your verdict should be for the defendant.

This instruction is WPI 12.04.2
The number and specific language of jury instructions is a matter within
the trial court's discretion. Douglas v. Freeman, 117 Wn.2d 242, 256, 814
P.2d 1160 (1991). Instructions are sufficient which permit a party to
argue that party's theory of the case, are not misleading, and when read as
a whole properly inform the trier of fact on the applicable law. Id. at
256-57. If these requirements are met, it is not error to refuse to give a
detailed augmenting instruction. Crossen v. Skagit County, 100 Wn.2d 355,
360, 669 P.2d 1244 (1983). Similarly, "{i}t is not error to refuse to give
a cumulative instruction or one collateral to or repetitious of
instructions already given." State v. Benn, 120 Wn.2d 631, 655, 845 P.2d
289 (1993).
Mr. Jalloh relies upon Goucher v. J. R. Simplot Co., 104 Wn.2d 662, 709
P.2d 774 (1985), and Jonson v. Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pac. R.R., 24
Wn. App. 377, 601 P.2d 951 (1979), to support his argument that it was
error for the court to fail to give his instruction.
In Goucher, the court found the jury was properly instructed on proximate
cause because the trial court gave an instruction informing the jury that
there may be more than one proximate cause of an injury. In that case,
both parties alleged the other was the proximate cause of the injury. The
court stated that where each party claims the negligence of the other was
the proximate cause, it is error to refuse an instruction which states
there may have been more than one proximate cause of an event. Goucher,
104 Wn.2d at 676 (citing Brashear v. Puget Sound Power & Light Co., 100
Wn.2d 204, 208, 667 P.2d 78 (1983)).
In Jonson, the issue before the court was whether the plaintiff's injuries
were caused by the defendant railroad's dangerous crossing or the
plaintiff's careless, and possibly impaired, driving. The trial court
refused to give the following instruction:
An event may have one or more proximate causes. The term "proximate
cause" means a cause which, in a direct sequence, unbroken by any new,
independent cause, produces the event complained of and without which such
event would not have happened.
Jonson, 24 Wn. App. at 379 (italics omitted). In its place, the trial
court gave WPI 15.01, but without the optional language instructing the
jury that an event may have one or more proximate causes. In a footnote,
the appellate court opined that this instruction was taken from WPI 15.01
and "is technically consistent with the note accompanying 15.01 that the
additional sentence 'should be given only when there is evidence of a
concurring cause.'" Jonson, 24 Wn. App. at 379 n.1 (quoting 6 Wash. Prac.
105 (1967)).
The appellate court reversed and explained "{u}nder the fact pattern
presented, we do not find the requisite degree of adequacy and clarity
necessary to approve the truncated version of the instruction." Id. at
380.
Both Goucher and Jonson are applicable to this case. Here, as in Jonson,
the trial court failed to include the optional part of WPI 15.01, which
instructs the jury that there may be one or more proximate causes of an
event or an injury. This means the jury was not instructed that there can
be more than one proximate cause of the accident. "'Where there is
evidence that the negligence of more than one person may have proximately
caused the plaintiff's injuries, we think the judge has a duty to explain
to the jury that there may be multiple proximate causes and that a finding
of negligence on the part of one person does not necessarily exculpate the
others.'" Jonson, 24 Wn. App. at 380 (quoting Warren v. Parks, 31 N.C.
App. 609, 615, 230 S.E.2d 684 (1976), review denied, 292 N.C. 269 (1977)).
We reverse the judgment and remand for a new trial. In view of our
decision, we need not address Mr. Jalloh's remaining assignments of error.
The majority of the panel has determined this opinion will not be
printed in the Washington Appellate Reports, but it will be filed for
public record pursuant to RCW 2.06.040.

Kurtz, J.

WE CONCUR:

Schultheis, C.J.

1 The unused sentence reads as follows: "{There may be one or more
proximate causes of an {injury} {event}.}"
The note on the use of this instruction states: "The last sentence in
brackets should be given only when there is evidence of a concurring cause.
In the event the last sentence is used, consideration should be given to
WPI 12.04, Negligence of Defendant Concurring with Other Causes, and
12.04.01, Concurrent Negligence of Defendants."
WPI 15.01, at 153.
2 The note on the use of WPI 12.04 states: "Use this instruction when an
act of some person who is not a party to the suit, or when some other
event, happening or condition, may have concurred with negligence of a
defendant to constitute a proximate cause."

The things most Sierra Leoneans are actually good at: gossip.
Fellows, I am really disturbed by the way some Sierra Leoneans embarrass their mental capability. What if Mr. Mohamed A. Jalloh sued somebody or was sued? What if he lost his job but decided to continue his life? This is a trend in America that has been going on for ages. Here people sue and get sued, people loose their jobs and get others, people file bankruptcy and start their lives over, people go to school others do not, Presidents get defeated in Presidential elections others win, people get poor, very poor, pick themselves up and become wealthy, people get married, divorce and remarry or decide not to marry any more, people become drug addicts but then become rehabilitated. People born wealthy, loose all the money and seek help to rebuild their lives. It is what Americans refer to as "the American success story." This is to say, and it is the American belief (read about or find out what the American Ideal is,) that life is not constant nor should people’s lives be constant or permanent. It is only flabbergasting to understand people’s rationale that some people must stay or be remembered permanently for what happened within six months over their twenty-to-thirty-years or more existence to mean their life history and must not elevate beyond the few things they think they know about such a people, when in fact, the country itself should and cannot be remembered by the sad things that happened within it such as the “Great Depression,” to mean the whole history of the country. Such thinking is primitive.
What bothers me the most is when people interpret the American system as what Sierra Leone or in the like of how it operates in most Third World countries, where, if you’re down, that is it! You will never or will hardly pick yourself up. If one knew you a certain way, say while you were younger, that is what they remember even when you become a President of the country. Such thinking is wack because people grow, in which process to go through transformations after the other. In the said countries where, if one offends you, you have no way of resolving it but by either resorting to violence or resorting to voodoo. To these, the mention of the word peace is a crime in itself. But this is a democracy that though not perfect but we do not expect it to operate as it operates in these Third World countries or in some animal kingdoms, where survival of the fittest is the order of the day; where the penultimate result for not liking another person for no apparent reason is killing them or torturing them.
I will commend Mr. Jalloh for taking the appropriate actions as taken in the civilize world or by civilize people to use the judicial system that is King in the United States especially, particularly, for the under-dog. This action to most rational people is not an embarrassment because it is an every-day-life in America to employ the court system to fight for one’s rights. That is what Constitutional democracy is about.
Please do not waste your time to tell even the most uneducated American such a story, if indeed it is meant for scandal purposes because they have seen it all. The President of the United States of America, President Richard Nixon had to resign because of the effect of such constitutional democracy.
The reason why most of you would not understand why I am calm and calculated in whatever you do or say is because I know you’re employing the Sierra Leonean interpretation to a Constitutional Democracy: a Capitalistic Democracy. It is apparent from some of your manipulative and accusatory gestures that you are not even conversant with what actually goes on in the Sierra Leonean judicial procedures or certain hierarchies within the Sierra Leonean system but constitute the bulk of rumor hawkers who pretend to represent the Sierra Leonean mainstream. This is what is exhibited here. You are therefore lost between systems.
I am sorry but the posting of this information here is a clear show of professional inadequacy. I am sorry but this is not even Sierra Leonean low-class standards let alone American mainstream.
Go figure!
Did it hurt? Too bad!
Most of you go about finding insignificant things about people, so as to make you happy, recognized, respected but how can the destruction of reputable people with reputable deeds a good behavior? Whether or not it does make you happy is a question to contend with. For fact that such happiness is an illusion because when reality-check is in place; such happiness will fly through the window, bringing back sadness. In that the truth of the good deeds such a person has done will be mentioned or will be remembered by you, the hatter, and immediately that happens even if you are by yourself, you will get offended. Therefore, why worry to look for the wrongs people might have done, that they have put behind them trying to focus on a brighter future, when their wellbeing has nothing to disturb your existence?
For instance, take that story and compare it to the profile of Mr. Mohamed A. Jalloh that has been read around the globe, through the Internet and other media; a profile that most people admired and still continue to admire him for. Whether you do not believe or accept such strides he has made is on you; to embrace or not embrace them is on you as long as you do not tamper with his constitutional rights, is fine by him, I believe. As long as those who are well placed than you do believe and respect this man, all sensible, forward-moving man will mind his forward looking strides and weigh his shortfalls and why such took place in the first place, that is if they are worth considering at all. I mean, just reflect on that profile in comparison to suing somebody for violating his rights and see where you went wrong. That is not even a matter for discussion on a forum, where people, most of whom have college degrees to the level of doctorate degrees, who are expected to have the mindset of Lecturers, Congress persons, Senators, Judges, Entrepreneurs, scientist and the like, want to bother with the court record of a man with an MBA who sued because his constitutional rights were violated? It is not worth it pal! You are not moving any one but dumb people who feed on gossip not reasoning; because those who reason-out will see you as a foolish person to bring such a joke to the fore.
You might want to present an odd side of Mr. Mohamed A. Jalloh but there are millions of people in Sierra Leone and around the world that know about his profile that I made mention of. Without you knowing it, such a people will hiss at what they might presume foolish, hate-mongering and selfish-self-serving liar can be. To you, you have "tarnished" or attempted to tarnish his character but to others, and some might be people who come in contact with, who might not even truly express their true feelings about the subject to you, who are conversant with this aspect of Sierra Leonean attitude in the Diaspora, and for foreigners who heard about our war will just say, that is just their habit. It is typical! You know what that means?
Please read what people know about you, the Sierra Leone community in the Diaspora and what has happened in Sierra Leone before you attempt to publicly talk about or show any record of them in a public arena such as this or anywhere people hear or can see; you might be doing yourself more harm and no good. But it is sad that you do not use your true identity; that would have been catastrophic. That is just a word of advice from the man who feels it, and knows it all.
Take a good look; meaning, rationalize.
Bellow are links of the profile of Mr. Mohamed A. Jalloh: I need not open them because I have been posting links here about his profile that are impressive. But I am totally disappointed in this court record and news about his divorce on a forum like this. I am convinced you are sardine by it completely. Apologies accepted. Now take a look at the profile for the next time:

Behold a deconstrucive reading of anti-Umpire postings! Lacking in all of them is the essential tool of reasoned discourse: arguments. They are infinitely absent, 'hidden' in the margins of the texts constitutive of the postings, framing and stabilizing the texts of the postings. Absence makes presence visible. What is made present in the anti-Umpire postings? What is evidently given in the flesh therein? Irrelevant childish babble, given as invectives: "kontriman," "stupid," "bushman," "'tribalist'" and other expressions of irrational affect, rather than the shinning expression of reason. The presence is an empty presence; the absent, the essence of rationality---arguments---is marginalized.

Exhibit No. 1: "Umpire is Moh'm Jalloh." Argument: none.

Exhibit No. 2: "Umpire invites Iscandri to justify the moral fecundity of Dr. Conteh." Argument: none.

Exhibit No. 3: "Umpire does not care about FBC." Argument: none.

Exhibit No. 4: "Umpire theorizes that FBC, not the University of Sierra Leone, was a bastion of Krio hegemony. Argument: none.

Exhibit No. 5: Umpire distractors: "Ban Umpire!" Argument: None.

Exhibit No.6: Umpire distractors: "Umpire urges genocide." Argument: none.

Thus wobbles the ocean of irrationalism. An ancient trick, indeed. Posit a strawman in your text; push the real man into the crevices of the margins of your text.

Since the margin is a part of the text, Umpire stands tall with rocking arguments.

Of course, when the distractors resort to invectives, even reason urges: "return the fire!"

No, No, No. Umpire is not Mohm. One possible way to test this is to go to jallohlaw.com and identify the main 'name' on the site. Then google that name. You will eventually find the person's picture. If umpire is the person whose name is on jallohlaw.com then the picture of that person is clearly shows that this is not Mohm.

Again, you will discover the person whose name is on Jallohlaw.com is actually a Liberian not a Sierra Leonean! This person also has another email address - jallohlaw2@yahoo.com which for some reason is very similar to umpire's email - jallohlaw@yahoo.com.

One reasonable explication of the concept of tradition is whatever is handed down to the present AND has an effective historical signature therein. Of course, in a literary cultural tradition the founding texts of a hegomonic tradition (the Hebrew Bible, the Christian Bible, the Qur'an and Constitutional texts, among others) are mediated by traditions of interpretation, and generally these traditions of interpretation of tradition are conflicting, antinomic.

The present, from which the future issues, is sustained, "constituted" in the horizon of the commands of the past IN it. Thus, the past, as construed above, IS in the present, albeit in the form of traditions of interpretations of the past and its claims on the present. Accordingly:

1. The future is realized by the application or rejection of traditions of interpretation of tradition IN THE LIVING PRESENT. A social crisis, which is never devoid of violence, occurs when a hegemonic tradition of interpretation of a hegemonic tradition is declared in the living present to be FALSE. Thus, "freedom" means first, to affim the claims of tradition and, second to reject the claims of tradition as they are mediated by traditions of interpretation.

Recall that the concept of freedom is ambiguous: on the one hand, it means that one is not constrained by circumstances and, on the other hand, the privilege to project and actualize new circumstances. Tradition, therefore, is the battle ground of bondage and freedom.

Under this theory, the European Englightenment was really darkness. According to Descartes, the alleged father of modern European philosophy, tradition is a "fable" and, according to Martin Luther, the founder of modern protestanism, tradition, i.e. the catholic tradition of the interpretation of the Christian Bible, is a "whore."

Of course, the negation of tradition is also a tradition. No escape from tradition, therefore, which implies that human life is anchored in the battle between bondage and freedom. This battle will only end in eternity, for any and all earthly determinations of freedom and bondage are eminently constestable. Ditto: "civilization," "education," etc.

No cognitive peace on earth, therefore. Any and all attempts to escape this monkey on the back of human existence is nihilism.

The Temnee name for a settlement is RO. Ro means the town of ...... or the village of..... or where someone has his settlement.

KIAMP is a corruption of the English word CAMP.

When the first set of settlers arrived in late May 1787, they set up camps for their housing as the place allocated them had no huts and the rains were fast approaching. Construction was thus not possible.

ROKIAMP means 'town of camps' or Camptown or some similar name.

It is really nice to know and understand the History of one's own country. Thank you. - JL

In general, philologico-etymological reconstructions are extremely suspect, if the cautious hands and eyes of sober philologists, are a guide. Hence, I shall refrain from passing on your projection that the Temne word "Kiamp" is a "corruption" of the English word "camp." JLV may have an answer to that one.

Significantly, your historiography seems to confirm my ironic shuffle: Freetown, according to your historical reconstruction, should be, under the facts you have reconstructed, renamed "Rokiamp," which is precisely my position or, rather my ironic teaser.

I think you misunderstood the point of my posting. First, given the fuzzy business of etymological determination, I stated, albeit ironically, that I shall "refrain from passing on your projection that the Temne word "Kiamp" is a "corruption" of the English word "camp." I fail to see how the above ironic text justifies your assertion that I "might not have understood the origin of the ROKIAMP name...."

First, I made no claim to cognizance of the "origin" of ROKIAMP. You did. Second, JLV recommended the baptism. I did not. Third, I pointed out in my reply to your reply to my posting that your historical hypothesis, if corroborated (but, see Chez's posting), pragmatically justifies renaming Freetown Rokiamp.

Unfortunately, you have not addressed that issue, which was the subterranean thesis of my original posting.

Finally, in the service of accurate textual reproduction, looking for a text in my posting that asserts that I "agreed[ ] to consult with JLV" would be a search for a needle in the proverbial haystack.

One would think, reasonably I suppose, that diplomatic protocol would have precluded the British Prime Minister from calling the President of Sierra Leone on his recent visit to the UK "O'Bai." Respect for the head of state demands that he be called Dr. Koroma.

First, as a locus to reasonably raise and elaborate issues germane to Sierra Leone; second, they facilitate the honing of debating skills of the younger generation and cranky old geezers like me.

Robbers stabbed, beat him with iron - inside of home!
Wednesday, February 13, 2008

By MICHAELANGELO CONTE
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

A Jersey City man is hospitalized in surgical intensive care after being viciously beaten with a clothing iron and stabbed multiple times during a robbery that left his apartment walls and floor streaked with blood, officials said.

Ibrahim Kargbo, 42, of Kensington and Bergen avenues, was rushed into emergency surgery at the Jersey City Medical Center yesterday morning, shortly after midnight, suffering from numerous stab wounds to the abdomen, lower back, armpit and thigh, reports said.


Kargbo was also bleeding heavily from his ear, reports said, apparently the result of being struck with the iron.

The marble saddle at the entrance of his first-floor apartment, and the door and carpeting just inside, were stained with blood. On a nearby glass table was a toppled vase, as well as a crumpled and blood-soaked dollar bill.

A number of walls in the apartment had blood on them, apparently from Kargbo's attempt to escape his attackers or fight back. In the kitchen was a broken chair near the blood-smeared refrigerator.

Building superintendent Frank McCord said his 16-year-old son was awakened by Kargbo's screams for help and when he opened his own apartment door he found Kargbo lying on the white tiles of the common hallway.

"My son said he was saying 'Don't let me die. Don't let me die,'" McCord said.

When police arrived, Kargbo told them two men had entered his small apartment through a living room window, one of them carrying a gun. They attacked him and took $760 from his pocket and some clothing before running away, reports said.

Police found a bloody knife in the living room and a bloody

toy gun on a fire escape, reports said, adding that a bag of clothing was also found in an alley.

Kargbo's friend, Robert Joseph, said Kargbo came to the United States from Sierra Leone about 10 years ago and has made a living as a street vendor selling clothing. Joseph was at the hospital last night and said Kargbo was in a lot of pain. Kargbo also gave a different story of what happened, saying last night that he was entering his apartment when the men came up from behind him and pushed him in.

Joseph said it wasn't the first time Kargbo has been attacked. Five months ago, Kargbo was walking from a Monticello Avenue liquor store when he was attacked and his jaw was broken while he was being robbed, Joseph said. He described Kargbo as being humble and quiet and said he was in poor spirits last night.

Fen Plabla, FMansaray, Erica et el:

The article below was posted on the Albert Academy List-serve. This might be of interest to other patriots on this forum. I made four trips to the motherland in 2007. One of my return trips to Salone was exactly after 2 weeks from my last departure from Lungi. I was surprised to see and hear that most of the individuals who came to see me again had the same sorry story they gave me two weeks prior. Has poverty reduced us to this state or is that life in their dispensation could not accord them anything better? Read on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Begging: A New Industry in Sierra Leone

In my primary school (somewhere in the North), begging was considered an anathema although we were always encouraged to give to the poor and needy. This moral education by then was premised on the need to build a crop of citizens that will be industrious, ambitious and competitive. But where did this all go? Today, Sierra Leone has become a country where begging thrives as an industry generating probably billions of Leones annually. I mean billions of Leones, and please don’t get too hasty as begging itself has many faces.

When the words “beg”, “begging” or “beggars” are usually mentioned in Sierra Leone what comes to mind is the usual eyesore of troops of beggars chasing cars in traffic in a desperate move to make ends meet. But there is more to begging in Sierra Leone than meets the eye. However, before we discuss the phenomenon in detail, I will choose to pause and briefly provide a definition to guide the discussion. The Cambridge Online Dictionary is my favourite and it gives two interesting set of definitions on begging. The first defines it as “to ask for something urgently and without pride because you want it very much”. While the other states, “to ask for food or money because you are poor”. This definition may be simplistic but underscores two main variables: Desperation and Inability. Simply put, one begs because one is desperately in need and or unable to acquire the basic things required to guarantee the individuals continued existence. This is what begging generally is and what we see in Sierra Leone as begging. Well in Sierra Leone the act of begging has largely defied contemporary definitions. There are many types of beggars.

Let me start with the most common which might aptly suit the above definition. Destitute Beggar. A destitute beggar is someone found permanently in the streets begging due to their below abject poverty state. They are victims of extreme poverty combined with despondency, no skills and often partially or fully physically impaired. Although some of them are often physically able-bodied but ageable folks, they are characterised by their desperation to make ends meet. In other words, they struggle for the most basic things in life and their life is full of uncertainties.

The second type is the Pilot Beggars who are mainly youths with stories of missed opportunities. They are generally strong, healthy and shabby but lack of skills or the mental strength to acquire skills has rendered them useless in their sight thereby loosing focus on their future. Yet their seemingly unskilled situation does not limit their ability to concoct pitiful stories to beg. They are the young boys who tell you rather casually “bra you borbor dae o” and expect you to dole out at least ten thousand Leones. Anything less than five thousand is not appreciated. Or they are those who tell you how they have lost their parents, now staying with step mothers or aunties who maltreat them all the time. The end of the story is “please help me with food or transport to go back to Waterloo”. They use Waterloo because it was famous for displaced camps and it is one of the longest distances from the centre of town.

Pilot beggars move from place to place to meet potential helpers and be inconspicuous. To rove around gives pilot beggars the advantage to appeal to pity through their stories. They most times target public places where cars are parked so that the rich would hear their story. Sometimes they steal from unlocked vehicles or cart away mobile phones and hand bags from passengers in moving vehicles when times get very rough. It is simply survival at its extreme!

Recently pilot begging has gained increased importance and has been adopted by a few amputees and many disabled persons who line the streets praying for the traffic to slow down so that drivers and passengers can be attracted to their sorrowful plights. Within the pilot beggar category also is the often glamorous ladies who suddenly pop up in front of you or in your office to ask for transport or food to eat. Sometimes they are even pregnant.

Different from the pilot beggars are the Prostate Beggars. They are prostate beggars because they target the male organ and do not play on pity like the pilot beggar. You can call them civilized prostitutes because they maintain a telephone database of very promiscuous big men. They usually pay visits during lunch time or after office hours to explain their new project. After office hours is the most appropriate for those benefactors with heavy workload during office hours while lunch time is the best for benefactors with heavy marital commitment; well you can say those with tiger wives at home. Prostate begging projects can range from house rent, college fees to that of hair dressing fee. They are mostly beautiful college students and in recent times have formed clubs to promote this type of begging to prevent clashes with friends.

The prostrate beggars are among the richest as their assiduity to this type of begging can easily pay off with a car, house of their own or live in well furnished apartments. Prostate begging is not unconnected to official corruption. Their strength is in their gender but their strategy to solicit money is unique from the rest. Their seductive appearances during lunch time and their willingness to give sex over the table with your lap top closed is the story behind their success. No wonder some meetings last so long at times and some offices close so late!

Next and also most irritating are the rampant Institutional beggars. This is the type of begging that takes place in the office and it is now everywhere. Whereas everyone accepted to do a job for a particular salary, senior officers are often bombarded by juniors with frivolous requests such as school fees for their children, lunch, transport fare, top up and even house rent. This is no longer the usual tip a boss gives for hard work or commitment to the organisation but often and especially on Fridays, it is like a must to give something to junior staff out of your own pocket. The worst set of people among this category is the clerks or secretaries. Because they are strategically located in the office, they know when you are packing your bag to go home; “how we dae for the weekend?” This show of concern or courtesy can cost ten thousand Leones. But it can cost more at times if that clerk or secretary is the one who manages the multiple girlfriends of the boss.

Also on the list of beggars in Sierra Leone is the Professional Beggar. It is an understatement that our country is the leading beggar in the whole world, understandably due to our wretched socio-economic plight. But this is not professional begging. Professional begging cuts across the top echelon of our society. Government ministers, managing directors, lecturers and other professionals (whom you expect to be highly paid) are constantly hunting businessmen for top up, bags of cement, fuel and even a bag of rice. This is even more shameful when you consider how lecturers have stooped very low to demand weekly top up from students. I was begged a pint of beer in college by my lecturer whom I thought was richer than I. Imagine a poor student without any job being asked by his/her lecturer to buy him a pack of cigarettes. It is simply an opportunity to mark your own exam paper! No wonder so many people now go in for masters’ degree courses. Simply adopt the new approach; just be prepared to be generous with fuel and top up anytime you are asked. And don’t ask anymore why certain government departments only award contracts to particular businessmen.

The last but the most recent type of begging is the Religious Beggar. For this, you don’t need to put on your gown or go to Sunday school to know this. Usually on Fridays and some notable Islamic holidays like Eids, some cunning and unscrupulous individuals have updated their skills to beg in the name of God. The impression they convey is that they collect “zakat” for charity but the money often ends up in their satanic togas.

In the community of the Church this is even endemic. Under the cloak of offering to God (charity to the running of the church and helping the poor), some churches have perfected the techniques to extort money from the poor masses. Churches even set targets for daily offerings. From one crusade to the next, hundreds of millions of Leones are collected, but all they do is to build a bigger church to increase the personality of the pastor and potential congregation to extort money. Nothing is given back to society’s less fortunate members. The more extreme churches even go for holidays to very expensive destinations travelling first class and staying in five star hotels. This is indeed ridiculous, vain and exploitative. Religious institutions and leaders are supposed to be bastions of modesty and championing the cause of the poor not using exorcism to extort from the poverty stricken masses. A church willing to spend thousands of dollars on a luxury car for a junior pastor is unwilling to care for the poor.

Begging in Sierra Leone is already a thriving industry. It is about time we started to look at the moral issues related to begging if we cannot tax it. From the above classification the percentage of people qualified as standard beggars are insignificant compared to those who have decided to paint it with a different brush. This national begging industry is less a factor of poverty than moral decadence. This is shameful and disgraceful for a nation as ours to indulge in vainglorious begging. Begging is for the desperate destitute! We must challenge ourselves to be industrious, plan our expenditure well and lead a simple life. Life is hard because nobody found it easy. We all have to work hard to make it easy.

Although we may sound rancorous in the expression of our opinions, Cocorioko's beauty has always been unaffected. That beauty is now sustaining a frontal assault from the sickest offspring within the Salone family. This Kailahun brother is taking leave of Cocorioko until normalcy returns.

The German philosoher Edmund Husserl, the founder of constitutive phenomenology, once wrote of the cisis of Reason in the West. Husserl argued that the crisis is founded in a fatal misunderstanding of the objects of the formal and material sciences. According to Husserl, the identification of the methods and methodologies of the formal and material sciences with Reason is the gravaman of the crisis of Reason in the West. Hence, to coin a phrase, reason is a differentiated phenomenon.

Differentiated or not, Reason requires that judgments be founded on evidence. The presentation of the mentioned correlation is called "reasoned discourse." Glory to the Moderator!

You mirror the typical caveman (tribesman? .. he-he) who still thinks education is using gibberish that doesn’t make sense to make an impression on the less educated.

Take a close look at the world and you’ll find out that it is how you apply what you received from the four corners of the classroom that matters. Did you see the way the present head of state apply his education? He doesn’t know much English, but he will be called Dr Koroma for the res of his life.

The RATPACK (henceforth) RP, a handful of wimps, really, has run out of rational arguments. Accordingly, it is arguably meaningful to label the pack as petty, vile enemies of reason. The antidote to this vitiating affect is the vigorous assertion of the superiority of reason to the following socio-linguistic barbarisms: unfounded invectives, illogical inferences, confident assertion of fantasies as facts, glorification of a past that no longer exists (millenariasm) and the expression of phobic affects. RP is the poster boy of this syndrome in this forum.

Accordingly, it would surprise no one that RP denies the following following propositions, characteristically without argument: name calling replaces reasoned discourse. "Gutterism" raises its ugly head. The management of this forum knows that free speech does not support irresponsible speech.
And unreasoned speech is irresponsible speech.

1. That a minority tribe, herein Krios, that continues to assert an archaic consciousness of an occupier founded affect of cultural 'superiority' against the majority (herein "Kontripeople") is not only devoid of rationality, but risks the release of a social crisis. The result is predictable barbarism.
Of course, this proposition is subject to well known exceptions: Blyden, to mention one.

2. That where the majority sublimates historical crimes of verba and deeds of a minority, a social crisis lurks in the horizon. Indeed, the sublimation is itself a manifestation of irrationality. For example, the sickness of 'racism' in the US is not sublimated by the majority 'white' polulation. On the contrary, far from sublimation, legal regimentation governs its existence in the US.

3. Propositions 1 and 2 apply, mutatis mutandis, to Sierra Leone in the interactions between Krios and Kontripeople.

4. I await a reasoned critique from non-RP contributors and ad hominem 'arguments', which will be religiously ignored, from the RP, the bastion of nihilism and irrationalism in this forum.

Your father must have been sleeping with his cows. In the process, he definetly contracted some strange disease with which your mother was infected just before your conception. As a young feutus, life must have been very painful for you, becuase you lacked substantial protein for ample growth, and after nine months of a troubled pregnancy, that had sufficed mostly on non pasteurised cow milk and Rice Porridge "ress pap", you entered this world as a malnourished infant with a prolonged and protracted head, a protruding stomach and snorty nose. Today, you remain a replica of your origins, with a mouth full of stained teeth, uneven legs like tweed, and a pot to piss in. If it hadn't been for the creoles, your father would not even had recieved payments for his cow meat because kontri people thrive off bush meat (snakes, gorillas, monkeys, you know the rest). The money that was used towards payment for your circumsition (baytee) was from the sale of cow meat to creole people.
Most important, your father had always denied the fact that you are his son, laying claim to the fact that your mother had slept with Mr Davies, on several occassion when she left home to sell "ress pap". But trust me Mr Davies is not your father, too bad he is dead now, we cannot do a DNA test, but I know his children, none of them look like, or think like you. You need to talk to your father, Tell him I finally told you the truth.

Congratulations are in order to all forumites who stood up to the arrant tribalistic nonsense of Umpire. We can disagree, and necessarily so, in our vibrant democracy. To however malign the Krios- or any other ethnic group- is an invitation to social chaos, considering the country's recent bloody history.

Congrats to the moderator for allowing the debate to rage, even as Umpire crossed all red lines, with the firm belief that the forum will self-correct, educate and expunge the garbage and tribalistic filth, etc.

Congrats to Mahatma for being the first to recognize that Umpire is a sicko.

Congrats to my Oremi, Alieu Iscandri, for calling Umpire's rantings, trash---and refusing to dive in the gutter our man was wallowing in.

Krios are actaully people that hate other Sierra Leoneans. One example. There was a time when Krios will get incredibly mad when contri people buried a dead contri man in what is considered a Krio cemetry. If that is not hatred, I wonder what else could be.
If Krios get their way, they will hold power and exclude every one. Krios hate us so much that when the war brought many contri people to Freetown Krios got angry to see contri people in Freetown. And Freetown is a city historically owned by the Temnes. Krios are too full of hatred for kontri people.

Psychopaths and the science of personality:

For many years, psychologists have studied the frightening reality of psychopathic or sociopathic personalities -- the serial killers, the child abusers, the pathologically consistent liars and incorrigible thieves. The scientific study of these individuals was systemically organized by Hervey Cleckley and his 1941 classic "The Mask of Sanity", and today the specialist Robert Hare is one of the foremost authorities in the field. According to Hare, the key emotional and interpersonal traits defining the psychopathic personality syndrome are: a smooth, glib capability to lie, manipulate and dissemble; a completely callous lack of empathy or concern for others; shallow emotional affect and lack of remorse; and egocentric grandiosity.

While most psychological studies of psychopathy have been based on prison populations, there's an emerging (and controversial) recognition that many individuals with this cluster of personality characteristics, are not in prison. The traits of these individuals are so distinctive that they may even represent a distinct taxon, a true sub-species of mankind -- consisting of otherwise normal human beings who are completely lacking in normal human responses to social interactions with others.

Having suffered an unexpected and crushing verbal trouncing, the RATPACK now threatens police action. How typical: moving the goal post is the signature of bullies. Does historical accuracy amount to genocide? Only the RATPACK would be motivated to adopt such a warped posture. It is a vital function of sober analysts to uncover explosive situations. One such is the hubris of the RATPACK. The RATPACK is free to adopt the sins of their fathers, but the analysis of the decimation of "native culture" by the usual suspects cannot be nipped by hilarious allegations of "tribalism" and "genocide." At best, this reprehensible essay to silence debate is intellectually dishonest, at worst, juvenile buffonery. Neither belong to this forum. The last time I checked, "genocidal acts" are inconsistent with reasoned discourse, and it is quite clear I have consistently professed that postings should be governed by reasoned discourse. Ditto for "tribalism." Of course I have stated that the concept of a 'tribe' is a concept devoid of any socially useful content. On the rest, go figure!

Even as you slimily try to wriggle from your own coarse words, the fact that you advocate for violence to be perpetrated on a minority ethnic group, the Krios, sticks out like a sore thumb. If your egregious rants are not a call to genocide, then tell us what they are. Facts are stubborn things my meh.
Oh by the way, I am not Krio. I am a Temne who is proud to call Krios my brothers and sisters as I do all the other tribes. Even you, my dear misguided Umpire, I consider my 'peoples'.

First Bankole Johnson, Mayor and the Renner Thomas Chief Justice then Wellington at Finance and now my niece in Freetown tells me other Krios manning posts are being marked for sending on leave to be replaced by you-know-whos. For why? We dont understand. Most Krios voted for APC but now we are being molested. Do we deserve this molestation?

What about the other people who were also sacked including my madingo people like Kanja Sesay, Kanji daramy,Pa kebbay foday sesay etc can we also say it it because of their tribe?

Let us stop this tribal thing and try to move our country forward, some of these people have reached their retirement age and they should go and make way for the young ones who we need to push our beloved country forward not old cronies who are not in touch with recent development and technology.

Sierra Leone needs an active work force not a sleepy one thats has been running our country for decades. lets try to be positive about things and not tribalise it because if we do, we will only get ourselves to blame.

when somebody in the west is sack or send on retirement leave, his or her family will not question the decision because they know they have reached the age. Why should we question our government for doing what is right. Sierra Leone does not belong to a particular tribe its belong to all of us so let stop what we are doing and try to be good citizens even though we are out here enjoying in comfort of our living rooms we should think about the people over there and not try to be selfish. WHEN THEY REACH RETIREMENT AGE THEY SHOULD GO AND NOT TRY TO BE GREEDY PLS CHECK THE AGES OF YOUR SO CALL KRIOS AND LOOK AT THE CONSTITUTION OF SIERRA LEONE THEN YOU WILL KNOW THAT SOME OF THEM HAVE BEEN LONG OVER DUE.

"Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups.[5]"

We will continue to build our case against those who seek to eliminate our people.

This discovery exercise will continue with due deligence.

This Umpire fellow is the most despicable creature to ever drag his tail across this forum. If his tribalistic rants had been directed against the Mendes, Temnes Fulas etc, there would have been hell to pay. I was very disappointed to see some misguided forumites actually express admiration for the vile fulminations of this genocidal wannabe. I went to FBC with many fine people- Krio, Temne, Mende, Koranko, Zimbabweans S. Africans, Gambians etc. As a kid from the North, I was pleasantly surprised at the oneness we all found in the pursuit of scholarship. The tribalists were in the minority as we discarded stereotypes about one another and discovered our common humanity.
No, Mr Umpire, we will not let you set off tribal pyrotechnics in Salone. As for your gripe against Krios, deal with it before you drown in your tribalistic vomit!

The genocidal rants of Umpire can no longer be ignored. The mass murder in Rwanda was inspired by hard words and dark hearts in Rwanda. The Hutu Interahamwe demonized the Tutsi, calling them cockroaches and rats, and blamed them for colluding with the colonial Belgians. Kinda like what Umpire is doing in his opprobious execrations against the Krios. This man, Umpire, is demonising the Krios as cockroaches, rats and blaming them for all the tribal grievances engendered during colonialism.
Umpire, your dream of inciting mass murder will be rejected by all honorable Sierra Leoneans. Shame on you and those misguided 'admirers' of yours. Coming to think of it, Hitler had admirers. So did Stalin, Idi Amin and Foday Sankoh!
Get off your blood-thirsty trip and recognize that tribalists will never be allowed to sow terror among our people again.

Weary of tribalistic diatribe? I stopped deleting them due to the fatigue of having to justify why this or that was deleted/not deleted, comme si comme ça.

Tribalism has been characterized as the tenacious loyalty to primitive subgroups that represent certainty amid bewildering social and economic upheavals. A priori, this may give you an idea as to why belonging to a tribe plays an important role in the lives of the millions of poverty stricken people back in Africa.

However, with all we’ve seen in places like Rwanda and recently Kenya, it’s not clear whether the motive of the neo-tribalists has been to showcase or get their asses kicked on a bad day.

"Cuiusvis hominis est errare; nullius nisi insipientis in errore perseverare" - Any man can make a mistake; only a fool keeps making the same one.

I’m only proud of those amongst us who have been robustly incisive in taking on the perpetrators of such negative controversies with calculated precision.

"Human nature, as manifested in tribalism and nationalism, provides the momentum of the machinery of human evolution."- Arthur Keith.

My personal conception of man’s origin makes it easy to shrug off the notion of mankind as a tribal species. I didn’t grow up thinking of myself as a tribesman, and probably the reason why I find it easy to stick to the belief that there’s only one race and tribe – the human.

Whatever the socio geo-etymological composition of the human species, everyone originated from Africa. Answers to most of these questions have their trace in disciplines like Sociology, Philosophy, and works of learned writers like Mill, Rousseau, Hume, to name a few.

Again, I commend you on your judicious and seasonable intervention. A sober review of my postings in this forum will show that I share your position of the unity of the human race. Accordingly, I have consistently deconstructed the so-called concept of a tribe. Moreover, I have theorized on the function of this contentles concept in the socio-economic context of Sierra Leone.

Moreover, I have consisently urged the deployment of reasoned discourse in this forum. As an astute observer noted, I have never used invectives, except in self-defense. Of course, I give as good, if not better, than I get.

In my view, the quality of discourse in this forum may be improved if an editor sytematically deletes postings that advance theses without justificatory grounds. This policy would first, eliminate irresponsible soundbites and, second, force contributors to think through their postings. In brief, absent CRITIQUE, reasoned discourse is an eidetic impossibility. If reasoned discourse is valued by this forum's management, the priority of critique must be adopted and implemented de rigeur.

Message:

POLITICAL thanks for your response in the following: "Bambay, first of all I am unable to read all your posting, but to cut matter short I'm sorry if you are infuriated by my question."
Let me start by saying that whatever might have prevented you from reading a two-page writing is more significant to you, which might have pervaded the thorough understanding and conceptualization of my post.
Further, let me assure you that nothing infuriates me on this forum because such will undermine my goal of living a mark, alongside other meaningful Sierra Leoneans and friends of Sierra Leone alike, whose dreams and endeavor has been to entrench democratic practices in Sierra Leone. In any case, I must admit that I might be flabbergasted, bewildered or amazed but never infuriated about peoples writings because I am gifted to look at the bigger picture and see reasons why I should not allow any one to get underneath my skin. Based on which, I am impressed upon the notion that there is no way one can truly discern how people feel in their writings on a forum of this nature and caliber (calibre.) Simply because there is a tendency that some are sheep in wolf clothing. Therefore, it is hard to tell who is who. I am sorry you felt that way.
Nonetheless, it is obvious that one can detect people's perception of issues by the reasoning displayed in their writings. This is what I look at. The same way Psychologists, Philosophers and other educated people believe that seeing does not only involve the eyes but the mechanized functioning of the brain. Which is why Sierra Leoneans and other English-speaking peoples often say, “you see, meaning do you understand??? Therefore, when I am asked to look, I tend to first thinking of perception, seeing and perceiving.
You further went on to state: "It wasn't mean bad, but when you write in such a way especially in commenting about others work without implicitly explaining what you are trying to accomplish, you leave a lot of misinterpretations." I am sorry this is the way you saw it but to be frank with you, I try as hard as possible to implement here what I learned in school such as the ethics of computer usage and the ethics of communication. I presumed all here have passed through some such of rudimental training that tried to instill values, expected to be employed anywhere educational exercise is undertaking. These values include but are not limited to, self-respect, respect for others’ dignity, privacy and other rights. With this in mind, I reasoned to post only their website with the caption, "I am impressed." Readers, who see, meaning can conceptualize, did not require any explanation by just seeing the website and what they stand for. My motive was quite explicit from the caption: “I am impressed.” Fair to say, that it is about Sierra Leoneans organizing to promote the youths, which is on the website, which is why we post these links because we do not want to only know about certain things while others are in the dark but we want them to enjoy the privilege of enriching their minds if they read these links and it is not show-off either because there are places to show-off other than a forum as this one. I believe that was self-explanatory.
You went on, "When you give the reference URL to the site, you expect readers to check it out." Absolutely true! Quite simply, nobody needs to play the nuisance.
You also said, "In doing so without preconception by the reader will easily misinterpret your intention." Wrong! With preconception, the reader hears or sees what he wants to see or what he has formed opinion about. He wishes to be correct rather to find out what is correct. No intelligent reader reads a book, a novel, theses or two-page writing with pre-conceived notion. It always breeds misconception or stereotypical derivations, which is very harmful to such a reader. Take my advice, read with an open mind even when what is said about you is calling for your extinction. By so doing, you will think rationally to avert it if in fact that is the intension. Do not judge but read with and open mind to understand.
Let me also thank you for the explanation. This is the kind of dialogue that will help Sierra Leone. I enjoyed talking with you. Keep it up; it will help promote democracy in Sierra Leone. The days of “pote” discussion, where people cut others off or use anger or foul languages, gimmicks, manipulative tricks, lying and the like to impress upon others are over, if most are now understanding that. Such tactics are irresponsible because what are we teaching the children or people who respect us; that it is o.k. to lie, cheat, trick and be virtually irresponsible?. We must discuss civilizely and intellectually, as people who want to amount to something or want to contribute to meaningful things in life. The way most people engage each other rudely is like street boys who have never assembled with descent people in life or have never darken the doors of schools and colleges as such have nothing to loose by what they say or do.
On the contrary, the accepted discuss in a civilized setting is as we have exercised here. Thank you. I look forward to many such undertakings in the future.

The issue Umpire talks about is a Sierra Leonean issue. However, I presume he is not sure of what he is angry about. He states in a post dated February 12, 2008 at 16:20:14: “No: it is not about what the morrow brings; rather it is about the exposure of the sins of some of your Krio ancestors today.” I see no sense in people arguing about land in Freetown when many lands along the Peninsula are up for grasp. As far as my knowledge of the Sierra Leoneans Constitution is concerned, ratifications had been in particularly the 1991 amendment and even before that changing section that prohibited Krios from buying lands in-land, that was encrypted within the Sierra Leonean Constitution during the British era to avert another uprising AS that which took place during the Hut Tax War headed by Chief Bai Bureh, N’yagwa, Madam Yoko and others. But after the baton of leadership shifted to Africans, Sierra Leoneans in particular, we saw need for inclusiveness resulting in the said amendment in the Constitution.
His/her anger is not because of this but the ignorance of Constitutional happenings of Sierra Leone. Not only that, he is angry because of the attacks or responses that he never expected coming to this forum. Such anger has been exhibited here time and again. For some it is short-lived for others it is long term. He’ll be alright! As time goes on, his anger will subside and he will heed with well meaning Sierra Leoneans if his mission is not to gain fame, women and power. I warned him; he will learn his lesson and adopt the proper mechanics of debate that the sole purpose is not to win but to share ideas for a purpose. This is not the place to get women in the way people want to get women, fame and power. It is the wrong especially the methods adopted.
Login, tell Umpire how the super cool does it from your one night experience in the nineties. Umpire listen carefully please.
You know why I draw this conclusion? Why do we get at each other on this forum when most of you don’t even know each other, don’t have the same aims are not active political participants, even if you were, (what did I just say) were? If I was the"leaderment" of Sierra Leone, oooops! That beside the point.
So live Umpire to learn his lessons; he will cool-off eventually.
Umpire if you are reading pay attention to this:
A man sends seven of his children to fetch two sticks each. They did and brought the sticks with them. He requests each of them to break one of their sticks. Each breaks one of their sticks with an exemplary ease. He asks them to tie their sticks in a single bundle. He asks each of them to a break the bundle starting with the eldest who tries to no avail. All their attempts to break the bundle proved futile. After their attempt he tells them, “if you are divided, you will be broken as easily as the single sticks. However, if you are united breaking you will be as difficult as it has proven with the bundle of sticks. United we stand, divided we fall. Umpire, Sierra Leone is at a threshold of nurturing unity, as such, we must not encourage anything that might put one person against another, a section against another or a tribe against another. Yes many would want to refute a single person, our brothers and sisters, our leaders and world leaders who stood resolutely and formed the League of Nations that is today the United Nations, a union burned out of the desire to free the world of diseases, poverty and wars, which resulted in the peace agreement that has taking place in Sierra Leone and other African nations, in countries in Europe, Asia and in the Americas. The world has very serious issues to attend to; selfishness is should not be encouraged to bring the world back from their goal of developing beyond settling civil strife.
Again, my appologies for any mistakes that might occur.

I'll also forward it to the State dept and the Department of homeland Security. Why? Because he's fanning the flames of civil unrest in a country that has just come from a wicked war. any such threats will nolonger be taken lightly. The full weight of the US laws will fall on him.

Dear Mr. Carl Thomas:

Please read my words carefully and if you can manage the situation, please restate or interpret them correctly. Thank you.

In this regard, please note that I never wrote that 'Kontri people sold Krios into slavery for Coco ebeh.'

I wrote that the Chiefs of Kontri people sold their own (so-called Kontri) people into slavery. It is some of the descendands of these sold-into-slavery Kontri people that became Krios or Creoles.

In order words, SL Creoles did not exist prior to the slave trade. It was that nefarous trade between SL Chiefs and the English that gave birth to SL Krios/Creoles.

Again, many of today's Creoles/Krios descended from the Kontri people previously sold into slavery by their own chiefs to the English for coco-ehbeh to work the plantations in the American South. The coco-ehbeh those SL Chiefs received included the following inappropriate consumables: rum, tobacco, looking glass, ceremonial clothes, etc.

The benficiaries of the SL slave traders drank, smoked and wore to rags, etc. their ccoco-ehbeh profits. The English, on the other hand, used their own slave trading profits to build a mighty, conquering nation and a worldwide empire.

My statement in this regard reflects facts and ZERO hatred for so-called Kontri people or any other people anywhere.

Finally, please be advised that no matter what you do, you will never be able to successfully label me falsely as a bigot, simply because I am not. Thanks. - JL

You have completely lost your marbles, you tribalistic sleazeball. Your vile rants against the Krios are symptomatic of a nasty inner core that we, your so-called Kontrimen, are gonna root out and cure with the fresh air that is blowing through Salone.
Whatever genocidal animus you bear against the Krios, we definitely are not interested. If you are pissed off at the British for colonial crimes, go take it up with the British courts for redress. By the way, hasn't it been 40 years since the British handed power to us Kontrimen? Are you going to keep blaming the Krios for all the mess since independence?

Colonialism was a messy business that co-opted Bellas from all tribes. There was a deliberate policy to brew antagonism between tribes not just in Salone but in the British empire. Isn't it too late to reawaken those colonial ghosts? We've had a war that devastated the country. If you are looking to have your own little Rwanda bonfire in Salone, it ain't gonna happen, buddy. We, Kontriman and Krio, would bury you first before your repugnant wishes ever come to pass in our long-suffering country.
Personally, I am glad the moderator has not yet banned you. We will use this forum to dialyze the anti-Krio venom from your despicable self.

Mayor of Freetown Winstanley Bankole- Johnson
Written by Fatmata Kargbo
Tuesday, 12 February 2008

The Minister of Internal Affairs and Local Government is to process and forward the petition filed against the Mayor of Freetown Winstanley Bankole- Johnson to the Chief Justice

Councilors of the Freetown City Council last month filed the petition against the Mayor for alleged mismanagement and embezzlement of council’s funds. Hon. Dauda Kamara Minister of Internal Affairs Local Government and Rural Development told CTN that he was to submit the petition with supporting documents before the Chief Justice handled the matter. The Minister said he expected the Mayor to return to office after his sick leave.

He said the Mayor’s chance of remaining in the office while investigations were going on depended on certain conditions. That was the Minister of Internal Affairs, Local Government and Rural Development.

These proletarian Krios? What is one to make of them? These Western produced rats have historically heaped more trash on what they ignorantly refer to as "kontrimen" than even their despotic British masters. Historically, the vast majority of "Kontrimen" resisted the rule of the British autocratic rule.. Not so, with a few well known exceptions, the vast majority of Krios.

The strategy was plain enough: ape the British occupiers. And this, again with a few well known exceptions, they did with gusto. The most potent effect? The corruption of education at FBC and the bureaucracy. Let us go back to the genesis of corruption in Sierra Leone.

Most corrupt were the British occupiers. To say that those Krios who collaborated with the occupiers, a fifth column if ever there was one, took second place is a founded historical fact. The corrupt "Kontrimen" were infected with the toxic phenomenon of corruption by their Krio bosses in the bureaucratic structure.

These demonizers of a peoples who resisted the occupiers, these Uncle Toms of Sierra Leone, now complain with papal confidence of "Kontriman corruption." Hypocrites to the core, they are.

I say to all "Kontrimen and Kontriwomen": watch their issue in the West. Even in this forum, the corruption is manifest: Krioboys and girls espousing the moribund Krio ideological claptrap of 'civilizing' you poor "Kontries" by adopting "Kontri" monikers. Stop, before dombolo sinks you. Advice from a concerned Krioboy.

Dear Mr. Umpire:

Please take it easy. Krios or Creoles are not Western produced rats as you have written or any thing close to that.

Krios are the descendants of Mende, Temnee, Limba, Kono, Suso, Fullah, Madinka, Sherbro, etc. whose ancestors were sold into slavery by their own very kontri people for coco-ehbeh mostly to the English.

For your information, SL provincial chiefs have been selling their very own Konri people to the English since 1565 and did not end the practice until the English compelled then to cease and desist from 1809 to1863.

The English brought them to Sierra Leone as compensation in fulfillment of a promise to free slaves on fought on their side during the US Revolutionary war 1776-83.
But why take ex-US Servicemen to Sierra Leone of all places? One key reason was because that's where (Bunce Island) many of their ancestors were shipped from over centuries. Some of the adult returnees from the US and Canada in 1792 were in fact first generation slaves who fully remembered their pre-slave childhood days in SLeone and were joyous to return home in freedom.

Some of those returnees revisited their home villages in the province immediately upon landing in Freetown but most returned for a better life under English civilization in Freetown.

Other Krios descended from Africans originating in such countries as Senegal, Guinea, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Cameroon, Congo, Angola, etc. between 1809 and 1863 and caught on the Atlantic Ocean by British Anti-Slavery patrol (then based in Freetown) and freed there, Christianized and educated. Those Muslims who wished to retain Islam were encouraged to retain their faith under colonial rule.

Still other Krios are descendants of Mende, Temnee, Limba, Kono, Suso, Fullah, Madinka, Sherbro, etc. captives liberated in the Gallinas during the 1840s from slave prisons while awaiting shipments to Cuba and belonging to Chief Sharka Massaquoi. The freed provincial captives were brought to Freetown, Christianized and educated.

During colonial days, numerous provincials married Freetownians. Their offspring became mostly Krios. Also, many offspring of educated, Christianized provincials who grew up in Freetown adopted non-provincial names (e.g. Benka-Coker - a Sherbro from Shenge), etc. and opted for Creoledom. As provincials became more educated they tended to be more Krioish!

The original preference of the British Colonial Administration was to limit their presence in SL only to the Western Area. The British resisted attempts upon attempts to expand their territory for financial reasons. But some provincial chiefs invited British Colonial officials to extend their powers inland so they could reap the benefits of Western Civilization as experienced in Freetown such education at Grammar School, Annie Walsh, FBC; health facilities, fancy clothes, uniforms and military ceremonies; fancy women in high heels, doctors & lawyers, law courts, English language, laid out streets, motorized vehicles, imported consumer goods, shops, money, upgarrettes, etc.

The British resisted but little by little British influence and later control extended inland. The British got roped in because of their interest in protecting Freetownians from tribal raids, slavery and unappetizing practices inland.

I can go on and on, but suffice to say that Krios are today a positive part of SLeone and a lot of mixing is taking place. Some old timers were, of course, really bad people who made fun of and deliberately disrespected native cultures and their lack of education. They vehemently opposed marriage to provincials. But not all Krios had such a terrible mentality. Many, many Creoles were outright liberals.

My advice is simple: for the good of our country, let’s look at what unites all the people of SL rather than focus our energies on pursuing nastiness. Besides, after having been around the entire country personally several times myself, I can tell you that your own country people would object to your referring to other Sierra Leoneans as Western ( or Eastern, or Southern or Northern) produced rats.

Furthermore, so-called Kontri people want more of Western Civilization than you will ever suspect. Thanks for your kind understanding. - JL

Thanks for your historiography. Tragically, you fail to reflect on the genesis of your narrative. Most competent historians would assert that your narrative is posited by the victors: the British autocrats and their Krio fifth column. Of course, my postings never referred to "all" Krios. Moreover, you corroborate my thesis by admitting that "[s]ome old timers were, of course, really bad people who made fun of and deliberately disrespected native cultures and their lack of education." The locution "native cultures" confirms that your historiography is burdened by implicit assumptions that can only be reasonably attributed to a historiography generatively grounded in the historiographical traditions of the British autocrats and their fifth column Krio partners. No, as you call them" "Kontrimen" would refer to their cultures as "native," a derogative classification posited by British imperialist historians from whom, I suppose, you liberated it. Hence, your historical account is, at best, uncritical.

Moreover, your refer to me, albeit implicitly, as a "kontriman." Given your apparent claim to "objectivity," the dearth of evidence to support your contention makes your narrative suspect sui generis.

Of course, I did not refer to "all" Krios as rats. Your attempt to suck me into the trap of uncouth generalization will be strongly resisted.

Unfortunately, your learned historiography fails to address my theses on colonial Krios. Accordingly, I should, in fairness, encourage you to address the theses, assuming you have not admitted their relative historical truth.

You labelled Krios as 'rats'. If you are black, then you are also a rat. Krios (rats) are descendants of the people your ancestors caught and sold for tobacco and alcohol. These are the same people your chiefs sold because they wanted the trappings of the whbite man. In other words - they sold their brothers and sisters for 'cocoa ebbeh'. I am sure the first educated person in your family was brought up by a Krio.

Reasoned discourse? You are perpetrating race hate and you expect me to keep quiet about it? I hope you still live in Sierra Leone and not under our Slave masters in the west. Because if you do, you have sold out again, like your fore fathers did before you. Anyway I am not surprised that this forum encourages such behaviour. This time it is the Krios, tomorrow it will be the Fulahs, Limbas or Lokos (if there is any left).

We are in a ridiculous situation! Sidi accuses me of being morally bankrupt alleging that I squandered a ‘colossal’ amount of money geared to helping the disadvantaged. How was I able to get away with such in the UK? Sidi, I know I have made you mad for you to believe that Scotland Yard were not able to track me and prosecute me for such an act being an offence in the UK. I can see Sidi has taken on a piece of his mentor’s cloak – a morally bankrupt and criminally insane intellectual buffoon. . This is indisputable; all we have to do to see it is open our eyes and look at what he did then and why he was refused entry into the UK after the NPRC coup. Your pathology is symbolically expressed in your act of not only refusing to accept the moral bankruptcy of your mentor but trying to smear a young man with high moral fibres from the core. I grew up with core values believing to respect and treat all humanity fairly. What have you done for anyone other than standing in the shoes of AO Conteh all the time? In earnest, your selfishness has clouded your heart, mind and soul tainting the spiritual. Now you have brought yourself in the open – many pitied you believing you will not take on his shoes. Why is his son incapable of coming to his defence? You know the reason very well!! I need not explain! His son is a victim of his greed and selfish nature – you cannot expect good from God when you abuse his other children. Sidi, we are all an extension of one another. If I abuse my office to protect only my children neglecting those of the community I serve; nothing good will come from my children. Remember this, take care not to completely wear AO’s shoes.


Sidi is complicit in the madness and criminality that was perpetrated by his mentor. They saw a new game but the Good Lord save us from you guys again. Not on his watch – your mentor needs to atone.
We ourselves are also complicit if we don’t demand that His Excellency Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma distanced himself from the likes of AO and his cohorts. He is not respected in any global circles – they know his history and diplomacy dictates that you do your homework with subtlety. What AO needs is serious psychological rehabilitation therapy, not forgetting to give you a dose as you’ve added another ailment to the lot – self-induced amnesia. Check your facts!! Will definitely supply you the information you requested. Good Day!!

Just what I had be saying:- The lot is a hopeless bunch. It will be criminal for us to be silent on issues concerning the authors of such degeneration. I beg you Son Excellence Please do not allow the likes of AO to taint you. If you do, God will stop favouring you. God has been your guide for a long time and he has done so much good for you to be able to help your people. Look at the roads you met - AO Conteh lives just down the road from kambai - what did he do. Not even to create a self-help outfit to develop the area. Please distance yourself from such a hopeless character whose ace card is the education poor Sierra Leone nurtured in him.

Kambia road is an embarrassment to Gov’t - says SLRA director

The deplorable Kambia Road

The director for development at the Sierra Leone Roads Authority (SLRA), Lansana Conteh, has described the main road to the district border town of Kambia leading to Guinea as an embarrassment to the government and country.
Mr Conteh was responding to series of complaints raised by residents of Kambia through their APC MP, Ibrahim Sorie, who met the SLRA director at Kambia town to discuss the issue. Up for intense discussion was the highway between Rogberry and Pamalap whose construction was awarded to an Italian company (CEC) for a period of two years and payments made to the company but the firm abandoned the project site with only 25% of the project completed. In that vein the SLRA terminated the contract and awarded it to another company which undertook the job better. He intimated that both the Sierra Leone and Guinean governments had agreed to ensure that the work recommence in October this year for a speedy completion of the project, adding that 22 million Euros would be provided by the Sierra Leone government. Meanwhile, the SLRA director confirmed that they would be rehabilitating and constructing roads within the township of Kambia and its environs within the next two weeks, as plans were underway to service the entire road network countrywide.
Ibrahim Sorie lamented that, “October is quite a long time as the rainy season will make it more difficult for motorists and pedestrians to access the road which will continue to dilapidate depriving the entire district of developmental programmes and also a loss to the nation on its basic food stuff to reach the market on time”. The APC MP was worried that traders would have no alternative but to take their produce to neighbouring Guinea for sale which could earn them more profit than pay huge sums to transport their goods to Freetown which would be very costly. The legislator urged the SLRA through the director of development to expedite the contract bidding process for companies to start the work immediately.

Umpire reminds me of a first generation educated Salone man who is still amazed of where he has got to in life. He has more that once theorized about a Rwanda situation with the Creoles in Freetown if they(the Creoles do not keep their heads down). Has some Creole stepped on is corn along his life's path?
Or has some hard headed Creole girl sent him on a promise?

On this Forum we will have to help him face his demons!! What ever the creoles have do to him is in the past and he should get rid of the Boulder on him shoulder and get a life.
By the way is there a psychiatrist among us? Please have a look at Umpires rants!

Extract of one of Umpire' Rants

a college, by the way, whose masters were in the United Kingdom; a college founded by colonialists who considered Africans as savages. Only a Krio, therefore, would unqualifiedly sing the glories of this product of the subjugation of the people of Sierra Leone by a depotic British regime. And these stinking Africans, seething with irrationalism, profess their 'love' for an artifact of Sierra Leonean subjugation. Ergo: Only unenlightened Krios and provincials, dying to distinguish themselves from the savages would sing the praises of a college founded on African blood.

I am worried about Umpire! Is he sick in the head?

If Umpire hates the whites so much why is he in the West? Probably on the dole and having his rent paid for by the council. And if he went to Uni in the west could Vampire tell who founded that University? I hope he does not think it was Shaka Zulu!!

First, I don't carry a chip a la Ronaldino, an ill constituted rogue. I carry the bulldozer of words. First, I have warned Krios to keep their heads down, to understand their peripheral posture in the politics of contemporary Sierra Leone. Moreover, should they fail to heed my grand narrative, as is evidenced by some postings in this forum, I predict that a Rwanda will issue. Whether or not I shall embrace this outcome is an opinion I choose not to share.

Now, unfaali, I am pretty certain that your piece was posted under the debilitating effects of crack and worse. Henceforth, my response to any and all of your postings will be variations on that theme: for even your neighbors know that you are a crackhead. If you don't believe me, post.

Umpire, I am most dismayed at your posting about the creoles . I am a country boy and i have achieved a lot from the creoles. Look as I am writing it was the creole who sent me to school when my dad died and it was the creole who helped many of us provincial boys to be better citizens.some of my brothers and sisters who were not adopted did'nt make it they were uneducated and unemployed and now they are looking to me for help. Look I would like you to look at things at the right perspective When some of our parent died most of our uncles and relatives fleeced our fathers wealth if it had not been the creoles that helped some of us from those poverty send us to school and universities and left properties for us in thier will we would have been stray dogs in the street of sierra leone . Please mr umpire tell me if there are any country man who would foster any of their nieces or nephew and pay for their education right through to university and leave a house for them and even send them overseas? non!! But you keep on lamenting these creoles as if they have deprived you of you basic right. You and I know that when these people decided to wash their hands off the running of sierra leone everything plumeted down hill. Please Mr Umpire lets stop victimising these people and face the real facts.

It is quite obvious to most observers that FBC was the locus of socio-economic Krio domination of so called Provincials in Freetown and beyond. The point is unarguable: FBC was used by the Krio 'upper classes' to dominate the despotic colonial bureaucracy, albeit as token house niggers and to 'employ' Krio academics who could not secure academic jobs in the West.

It was only after the British despots, in the spirit of realism and despotic self-interest, determined that the Krio 'elite' could not reasonably support their despotic rule in Sierra Leone that they opened the doors of FBC to provincials, despite irrational objections from well known Krio 'professors' and their allies in the despotic British bureaucratic machine.

The economic basis of this structure was the despotic exploitation---theft, really---of the labor and wealth of provincials and 'their' lands. Accordingly, no provincial dehumanization, no FBC. Education, in this specific historical formation, was therefore a product of archaic barbarism. In the margins of colonial education was the blood and tears of provincials.

Therefore, it may be concluded that colonial education and its transformation in 'independent' Sierra Leone is the signature of barbarism, despotic British barbarism. The consequences of this syndrome are not limited to 'education,' however. Unfortunately, they permeate the political, economic and social structure of Sierra Leone as I write.

Sampling Heidegger, only a god can resolve this quagmire. Witness the number of Sierra Leoneans in the West with graduate and post-graduate degrees in West. Call it a "brain drain," if you are so inclined. Common sense counsels, however, that a "brain drain" is economically, morally, and socially more efficient than a "brain waiste," a sure fire consequence of working in the inherited socio-politial lebenswelt of Sierra Leone.

My bet? The worse is yet to come.

These are not empty words, but the legal opinion of trusted counsel. His actions could also drag the gracious hosts of this forum into legal problems.

Let no one be fooled by the apparent cover the internet provides. For starters, the Umpire has a live email address that could be used to track him to his place of abode.

The concepts of normal education, heavy education and extra heavy education have to be regarded in objective terms.It is illusory to believe that one tribe can achieve the same performance from other inadequately fed tribes pre-colonial era.
On the contrary: the creoles produce far more sober headed graduates and mixers and their employment is far more rational.

The bloodcurdling logic of this was clear. it was preferable for creoles to dispense with a part of the British system rather than keep its alive with hypocrisy. The shortage of educated natives during colonial time, became a powerful impetus for the British systematic decimation of a part of the workforce, which according to colonialists was of inferior stock.

In fact, the marginalisation of entire population groups already had been drawn up by British ideologists in the eighteenth century.

In particular following his partial inclusion of Africans in trade, the creoles however, made absolutely clear that far from being just an obedient lackey of the British, they were infact instrumental in massively equipping other Sierra leoneans with education and methods to help them be self reliant.

If there was a true ‘citizens miracle’ in Sierra leone it occurred, when the creoles espoused education and in virtually every category of disciplines,outsmart the colonialists who thought Africans were supposed to be salvage.

The creoles approach serves as a refreshing and very necessary antidote to some of the more absurd theories currently in circulation concerning the nature of Sierra Leoneans.
The creoles had directly opposed the ludicrous thesis put forward by others that they look at others with contempt by adopting many children from the provinces and beyond.

Umpire writes a lot of BONCUMBS these days! What he fails to realize is it was the creoles that fought for a proper educational standard in the Freetown Legislature when the british wanted to introduce a Bantu standard of education to the schools they would open up country.
Umpire should be grateful that his father got a decent education fought for by the creoles.

If it had been the other way round........

Take a boy whose family sends him to Freetown to live with his well off uncle or aunt. The chances of his uncle or aunt to pay his fees all the way to University is slim. They would rather have him washing their cars and picking the kids up from school. This I have witnessed many times!
A large majority of creoles would not do so!

Umpire you talk crap!!

Your posting mentions the concepts of "objectivity," "education," and "productivity." However, you fail to define them. A definition would have clarified your numerous theses about the accomplishments of Krios during the British despotic rule of Sierra Leone. Accordingly, it is difficult to corroborate or falsify your theses. Hence, until you define the mentioned concepts, your piece may be viewed as an uncritical evaluation of Krio contribution to colonial Sierra Leone.

One way to falsify my thesis is to show that Krios encouraged so-called provincials to enter the college in a manner that DOES NOT SOLIDIFY the postulated Krio hegemony at the college and the despotic bureaucracy, which includes, by the way, the legal system.

You guys can have your stupid arguments but please leave our esteemed University out of it. I am repeating my post made at the bottom.


I attended the University of Phoenix and indeed, you cannot compare FBC to it, as Umpire said.The level and quality of learning of the University of Phoenix is higher than many universities in the world. It is only ignorance which makes somebody condemn that which he does not know.

When you study online, you learn more than when you study on campus. You cannot cram and pass in an online program.You have to read and understand every module well before you can complete any question .

And the University makes sure that you participate substantially in all topics throughout the course or else you will not get a passing grade.Your collegues introduce a topic and you are expected to participate by making academic contributions three days a week. Every week, you also write one academic paper on your own and contribute to one other academic group work paper. Some professors give you an outright failing grade if you do not write perfect, academic English and use the APA style correctly.

There is no difference whatsover in the quality of online colleges .Top Universities like Penn State , Drexel , University of Maryland, NYU all offer online degrees and tell you the truth I would rather have an online degree from these colleges than attend FBC--especially the FBC of today.

SOME OF YOU GUYS THAT ATTENDED FBC KNOW EXACTLY THE FRAUDULENT,CRIMINAL AND CROOKISH WAYS YOU GOT YOUR DEGREES.IT IS A SHAME TO COMPARE FBC- A UNI THAT CAN'T EVEN PROVIDE BASIC TOILET FACILITY FOR ITS STUDENTS, NOT TO TALK ABOUT GOOD DRINKING WATER OR COMPUTER LAB. HAVE YOU SEEN A REAL SCIENCE LAB? YOU CAN'T COMPARE AN IMPOVERISH UNIVERSITY TO THAT OF ANY UNI IN USA.

LECTURERS AT FBC WERE/ARE SO MORALLY BANKRUPT -SEX IN EXCHANGE FOR GOOD GRADES,INCLUDING HOMOSEXUALITY,CASH FOR DEGREE.HARASSMENT OF FEMALE STUDENTS, WHO WILL NOT BEND DOWN OR GO DOWN FOR PROFESSORS.FBC WENT DOWN THE DRAIN,LONG TIME AGO.

I LOVE THE JOB UMPIRE IS DOING IN THIS FORUM. HIS CRITISM ARE VERY CONSTRUCTIVE.HE INTRODUCES THE SUBJECT,ACKNOWLEGES THE WEAKNESSES AND STRENGTH.

"No sober person can rationally compare UDC or the least developed University in the States to what you aptly characterized as "the FBC of today." Most of its graduates are social parasites, a drain on the scarce resources of Sierra Leone. These graduates are not fools; on the contrary, given the difficult life situation in Sierra Leone, they must be commended.

Now, unless the government can productively engage such graduates either directly or indirectly (by enabling an private economic sphere where they can earn their keep) a social crisis looms. If I were in charge, I'd rather have a school for farmers, a school for mechanics than a university that produces graduates without a hope of landing a job that can sustain their families. The result: a mass exodus to the West. Whether the exodus results in lawyers, doctors, academics or cab drivers, the result, in the main, is the same: a severe waste of Sierra Leone's resources. True, monies are sent to Sierra Leone from these individuals. The net effect, however, is a substantial loss of human capital to Sierra Leone.

Glory to God, the tails of the lawyer fell like dominoes. As I write, they have shuffled into their holes, lovers of euro-american indoctrination, one and all. Now, that the lawyer has been silenced with his ponderous and boring samplings from Blackstone, it is time to return to the original question implied by Professor's Margai's plea.

The issue is a historical one, namely whether Minah's execution was judicial or extra-judicial. Assuming it was extra-judicial, the question is what role, if any, Dr. A.O. Conteh played therein. Since this is a historical question, the affects of members of Minah's family are obviously irrelevant. That is why I urged that the professor's plea be ignored.

To be sure, it was ignored, to the detriment of historical reconstruction, by a tribe of irrationalists, "bombers" of an FBC they never atteded. The jerks got trounced. I await their Master.

The second issue issue that was swept under the rug by the Krio boys was whether, as the professor professed, this paper is a FBC paper. There is, of course a plain ambiguity in the string "FBC". There is an explication that relates the string to the College associated with Durham and an explication that does not, namely "the university of Sierra Leone."

This question is analogous to the current debate in and out of this forum about whether this paper is an APC paper or not. The locution "APC" is again ambiguous: there is an APC party rooted in the Stevens/Momoh syndrome and there is an APC party, the current one, I suppose, that negates any attachment to the mentioned syndrome.

It is time to rock with reason, not with frustrated, broke, and uneducated fools from the 'University' of Sierra Leone. Nota Bene: The Moderator should note that should he permit this debate to be hijacked by the buffoons of nihilism, it would be unreasonable to expect me to hold my verbal fire. And, it is known that I never hold my fire in self-defense; accordingly, face their inevitable destiny: destruction in the sense relevant to a forum anchored in discourse.

Ex-Sierra Leone dictator in UK

Strasser was the world's youngest national leader at 26

Amnesty International has demanded that Sierra Leone's former military dictator stand trial for alleged murder and torture, after it emerged he lives in the UK.
The human rights organisation said Captain Valentine Strasser - who has lived in London since dropping out of Warwick University in 1998 - must be brought to justice.

Its reports on his four-year rule until 1996 detail widespread abuses including torture and murder.

The Home Office has refused to comment on its decision allow Mr Strasser to stay.


His government was involved in committing serious human rights abuses

Amnesty

Amnesty quoted the International Torture Convention, which compels countries to prosecute anyone resident who is suspected of human rights abuses.

"He was the leader of a military coup and his government was involved in committing serious human rights abuses against anyone suspected of supporting rebel forces," said an Amnesty spokesman.

"We have signed an international convention against torture and we have brought the provisions into our law.

"If that's to mean anything, we have to bring alleged perpetrators to justice, otherwise the cycle of torture and killing with impunity will go on."

And Patrick Robertson, the former spokesman for General Pinochet said: "Clearly this demonstrates the double standards the government has in their application of the law - Pinochet was arrested seven weeks after he arrived yet Strasser has been allowed to remain here for years."


Amnesty: Strasser must be brought to justice

The former dictator swept to power in a coup in April 1992 and at 26 became the world's youngest national leader.

His reaction to an attempted coup by former army officers in December 1992 led to international condemnation.

Nine suspected coup plotters and 17 other prisoners were executed.

He was ousted by a further coup in 1996.

After he was deposed he studied law at Warwick University, but dropped out in 1998 after his scholarship for the United Nations development project expired.

Since then he has been living in Brondesbury, north London.

Six weeks ago he was arrested in Kilburn and accused of damaging his former girlfriend's car.

The Home Office said criminal matters - such as accusations of criminal damage and investigations into alleged war crimes - would take precedent over immigration affairs.

Guest, thank you for this post. You know, I am so impressed that I would have responded immediately you posted it but I was in Washington, D.C. since this morning looking for work and making arrangements for school. My belated apologies.
These are the reasoning that impresses me: passing information geared towards the consolidation of our energies, our resources, our talents towards the development of Sierra Leone. I must tank you, Guest for putting Sierra Leone first.


POLITICAL, sorry I am not here to gloat over mistakes people make. I am not here to bloat and bolster the failures people make nor that made by Sierra Leone. Since childhood, I have been a lover, which makes me enjoy beauty. I have loved beautiful scenes, beautiful smiles on people’s faces. I grew-up seeing smiles all around me. This is what I would love to see here and in Sierra Leone.
I am not here because I know it all but I am here because I believe that I can make my contribution. I am not here because I want to see others make mistakes but I am here with the belief that together with other stake-holders, we can make a difference. I am here to learn from the mistakes others make and the mistakes I make to have these mistakes corrected for the betterment of Sierra Leone, the land I love so dearly. I have been a democratic debater since I was very young especially, from High school to college and have learnt; in those exercises that life is give-and-take. That you have short-falls that might be similar or different from mine and so is everyone that contributes here. Except if some members here are somnambulically content, I do believe that not even the sky is the limit considering what I know other Blacks have achieved that many here have not dreamed of. Nonetheless, I do believe that every human being, except if born with silver-spoon in their mouth, (I mean if they were born wealthy) they definitely have had darker days, they still have things that worry them but any problem-solver does not look at the massive nature of the problem but looks for solution. But they do not sit contentedly looking for the few they too are better than in this global economy, where currencies are devalued, causing the devaluation of properties;. the job market dwindling, whereby, jobs are either shipped to other parts of the world thereby, creating competition, tighter competition in the job market therefore, the best qualified, the one who reasons within the elite level of expected thinking, one is doomed to failure. Therefore, when I see such reasoning is bastardized by contributors, some of whom expect to be spoken to like kindergarten kids, I cry for Sierra Leone and the future generation if this is the legacy that will be left for them.
Ivanka Trump was burn wealthy but she knew that she will always have worries when her reasoning is not at per with mainstream thinking. She went to college to get a degree. She did not sit to look for those she is wealthier than but she looked at her short-comings and tried to correct them because she knew money can not buy knowledge. Many other Sierra Leoneans are making these strides and are not relying on petty-thinking as a weapon. This is what these brothers and sisters are doing, which I am very impressed by. In that, they want to encourage the younger generation, preparing them for creative leadership in our land. I never saw any spelling mistakes at all. That is God’s honest truth. What I saw was the desire in them to make a difference in other people’s lives. What I saw was their innovative acumen. Such acumen realistically overshadowed any typographical mistakes made. I am an “intellectual” and computer literate to know when mistakes are typographical and when minor mistakes must not overshadow the good intended or blur my view of the bigger picture.
But the mentality I have witnessed here is bothersome. In that, the degree of contentment and low rationalization exhibited by a majority here, if such mentality is what has ruled Sierra Leone for decades then there are no reason such a country will not fail. Thank God change is on the match. As such, I will live no stone unturned but employ the necessary tactics that can effect this change, stopping at very little because my effort here is not politically motivated nor am I looking for fame, friendship, love or power. This is why I am the way I am, I talk the way I talk because I am the symbol that Sierra Leoneans will learn from as to why youths in Sierra Leone are not respected, are not cared for. Because any intelligent reader who participates on this forum that follows reasons behind some actions taken by participants on this forum, the untidy tactics exhibited by them for whatever reason, will definitely pinpoint the causative agents for Sierra Leone’s plight and the anger that is or was harbored in that country. Our leaders can learn from this forum; world leaders can learn from this forum: that not all that glitters is gold.
Please let us focus on what is significant and refrain from looking solely for the mistakes people make without correcting these mistakes.
The most disturbing thing in a gathering, where people claim to be educated do debate is when the use of dirty tricks to be perceived intelligent is adopted instead of facts, beauty, eloquence and reasoning especially, by people who butchered each other for over ten years and still do not know why. It sometimes disinterests intellectuals who read through these monkey tricks. They are easy to detect. Even an uneducated individual can see through people here therefore, disrespect their intellectual fabricate. What is achieved in such a case when the Sierra Leonean issues are not addressed or fully explained to readers who might be interested to help with the problems since some of these readers are tax-payers from donor countries whom governments and media have been doing their best to explain the necessity for the philanthropic gestures they make to poorer countries such as Sierra Leone. When these who do not have other means to discern the difference between the less than hundred Sierra Leoneans that contribute here from the five million people who suffer back home, the tendency for them to claim that we are not serious about the problems is great.
This is what I see, which is why I do not make it an endeavor to gloat at people’s mistakes or miseries but make it a responsibility to defend the cause of our people and government that must be encouraged to do right by all Sierra Leoneans for their legacy.

Thank you Guest and keep-up the good work.
I am not speaking for Sierra Leone but be rest assured that our forefathers pray for you each time they turn in their graves; our poor people shed tears-of-joy that people like you have begun pinpointing and working towards the solution of their problems; our youths long for a hug from people like you who are giving them the needed chance for a greater benefit; our children will immediately crawl towards you with a smile towards a brighter and promising day. Our seas, mountains and valleys will all gladly welcome saviours like you who are leading the match towards true national freedom. A step like this is another mark that will fulfill the reasons for the match towards independence. I salute you.
Keep-up the good work.
You remind me of days when Sierra Leonean grown-ups were proud of people because they have the intelligence, the eloquence, the ability and willingness to learn and be somebody who can contribute meaningfully towards their communities and nation. They would do any and everything in their power to see this happen even if it caused them to go hungry without clothes on their backs. Can you imagine if those had the opportunity that a majority today has to invest in the youths? Then, and you have proven that even today, it was scorned-upon for anyone to be seen as the blocker of a youth’s dream or shamelessly cut-edges to turn an intelligent kid’s educational acumen, determination and vision into cynicism. But many still have not embraced such civility as of yet. I am glad you are turning the tide.

A nation without a solid foundation in her youths is a plowed land without seeds to plant or water to water seeds even when they do exist. A nation without a solid foundation in the education of youths, a nation full of disappointed youths, hopeless youths, uneducated, unemployed, untalented, non-directional and or unidirectional youth population is like a sea with a sea animal population infected with contagious diseases that is not only bad for variant species but catastrophic for the ecosystem at large, if everyone turns their back because they are sea animals.
Many turned their backs on the youths but hope was not gone. You have come to the rescue; I hope all of us will join you in making this dream a reality. It is not a one man problem therefore, neither one man nor one group can solve the problems because they are many and divergent therefore, they must be seen as our problems.
We Sierra Leoneans must have learned that even when you do not live in Sierra Leone, Sierra Leone’s problems will follow you anywhere you go. Classic example is the impact of the war that affected all Sierra Leoneans from all works of life, age, gender, religion, educational status, Para status and the like. Heck, it affected people who did not have a single hair hailing from Sierra Leone. Europeans, Americans, Asians were all affected by overlooking the wrongs before the war because it was not affecting us personally. White people, Asians spent money and time to coil the war, to foster restoration of peace and stability and help the poor, the needy. Some even lost their lives because of humanitarian reasons. As such we may have learned as a world that a problem in one area is a problem in another. Our war spread so far that White people in far in-lands of America believed the war is about them. This is why one problem in any corner of the world is a problem wherever one resides in another because we live in a global village. As such, the negligence in resolving the problems when we should and could have turned-out to be head ache for every human on the face of the earth. We must not sit to have such a recurrence because it all started when the majority started saying, “mek dem try dae,” meaning it is their problem; their business; whatever they do is on them. We believed in security in inaction. This same mistake was made by the United States during the World War1 when war was ragging in Africa, Europe and Asia that the “best action is inaction,” fearing that involving in European wars might affect them therefore, they would stay-out or rather abstain. But what happened was that, it became their problem. Ultimately pulling them into the war. The result was both liberating and excruciating for America and world because it led to absolute poverty: “The Great Depression.”
Our inaction was as a result of the fear that we might loose something had we dared to correct wrongs but we lost more than we could have, if we had made it our business when we should have. We should now learn that any individual’s problems, if we can make a difference, we must make it a priority to do so because what goes around comes around and that one man’s problems will affect you in one way or another, whether you know it or not. A sad example is Foday Sankoh’s disgruntlement that has impacted everyone after several years.
What you guys are doing will come back to help you in the future because your grand children might need it tomorrow. You might need it tomorrow because we grow old and life is definitely uncertain therefore mistakes that might serve as obstacle tomorrow must be corrected today. The preparation must be today for tomorrow. The solid foundation is the youths of today that will be leaders of tomorrow. One can not fatten the pig on a market day. If the pig is fat, it must have received years of nurturing or feeding. For this reason, I am excited whenever I hear from people like you and your brilliant ideas of investing in the youths in various fields of training for leadership not only schooling because there are many who dropped-out of school long time ago who need vocational education.
Whether you know it or not, Sierra Leone has a population of about five million and more that are happy with you but be mindful that the people are mindful, pushing most to apprehension that many other "jesuses" have come. But there is only one True saviour, the one who is willing to share the pains and sufferings, the one who is doing it for the sake of God. I am hoping that this is the group. If about the twenty people contributing on this forum do not appreciate your work, there at least five million and more of Sierra Leonean people that are hopping, vouching and know what you mean to them and most importantly, God smiles on your faces daily. Your work will grow like wild fire because you are doing a great work for Him. This is what Christians believe, this is what the Jews, Gentles, Buddhists, Muslims, Naturists, religions and beliefs of all denominations preach that we must work faithfully towards changing the condition of peoples from bad to good. Whoever thinks otherwise, is a Satan follower and we must not heed to them because the good always overshadows the bad.
Thank you for answering to the clarion call. God bless.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I read one Sidi Sheriff stating that this good-for-nothing Abdulai Conteh served his country with distinction. May be he is right. HE SERVED HIS COUNTRY WITH DISTINCTION IS HIS CONTRIBUTION TO DESTROY THE COUNTRY.

"Na sense make book, norto book make sense"
Abdulai conteh happens to be one of those lettered Sierra Leoneans , who go around flaunting their achievements like clearance badges into greener pastures, failing to realize that there are other observers far from the perimeter, paying attention to their every move. Now that he has been denied clearance into the AU, as a fat red tomato, I hope he realizes just how green he is in the eyes of others. We must let sleeping dogs lie, and dissociate upward political mobility from the ghosts of the past. Do not let this fellow rent space in the governments head. He is not worth it.

We are in a ridiculous situation! Sidi accuses me of being morally bankrupt alleging that I squandered a ‘colossal’ amount of money geared to helping the disadvantaged. How was I able to get away with such in the UK? Sidi, I know I have made you mad for you to believe that Scotland Yard were not able to track me and prosecute me for such an act being an offence in the UK. I can see Sidi has taken on a piece of his mentor’s cloak – a morally bankrupt and criminally insane intellectual buffoon. . This is indisputable; all we have to do to see it is open our eyes and look at what he did then and why he was refused entry into the UK after the NPRC coup. Your pathology is symbolically expressed in your act of not only refusing to accept the moral bankruptcy of your mentor but trying to smear a young man with high moral fibres from the core. I grew up with core values believing to respect and treat all humanity fairly. What have you done for anyone other than standing in the shoes of AO Conteh all the time? In earnest, your selfishness has clouded your heart, mind and soul tainting the spiritual. Now you have brought yourself in the open – many pitied you believing you will not take on his shoes. Why is his son incapable of coming to his defence? You know the reason very well!! I need not explain! His son is a victim of his greed and selfish nature – you cannot expect good from God when you abuse his other children. Sidi, we are all an extension of one another. If I abuse my office to protect only my children neglecting those of the community I serve; nothing good will come from my children. Remember this, take care not to completely wear AO’s shoes.


Sidi is complicit in the madness and criminality that was perpetrated by his mentor. They saw a new game but the Good Lord save us from you guys again. Not on his watch – your mentor needs to atone.
We ourselves are also complicit if we don’t demand that His Excellency Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma distanced himself from the likes of AO and his cohorts. He is not respected in any global circles – they know his history and diplomacy dictates that you do your homework with subtlety. What AO needs is serious psychological rehabilitation therapy, not forgetting to give you a dose as you’ve added another ailment to the lot – self-induced amnesia. Check your facts!! Will definitely supply you the information you requested. Good Day!!

The debate for or against Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)has been fought for the past several years. One thing that is coming to play is the confusion between Bondu society and FGM. Most of the proponents of a ban on bondo society does not understand the differences between FGM and Bondu. A woman like Mbalu and Erica who I believe are members of this culture ignorantly or intentionally mixing up the two.
Mbalu once wrote in this forum that she want the practice ban because it takes away her sexual fantancies. She has so far failed to come up any scientific proof that will support her claim.
They very well know that FGM is just one of the many practices in the Bondu society. It is like a treeview. In a treeview when the parent node is deleted there is no child node.

One thing that Mbalu and Erica or any other proponents of the ban do not want to acknowlege is there are lot of other practices in the society that are beneficial to our African culture.
What I expect these people to do in sincerity is to lobby the government to pass legislation banning any practice of FGM without been performed by a train nurse or professional. If this the cause of their fight, many people would have supported them.

On a separate note, Erica Adams,are you related to Sanpha Adams in Magburaka?

My objection has been and continues to be against FGM. I don't have any issues with Bondu, but I don't support the removal of the clitoris of girls in any shape or form. If adult women decide they would like to maintain the practice once they reach the age of consent, I believe that is completely within their rights to do. There is a post by Researcher which is a great educational piece about the actual importance of the clitoris. I don't believe all the people who are advocating for the continued practice understand the importance of the clitoris as it relates to the sexual health of women. Aside from the pain of the practice, it's unfortunate that women do not have an opportunity to experience their sexual organs the way they were created to. Clearly you were not around when I posted my views on my clitoris. I stated it then and I'll restate it for you-I love my clitoris and plan to go to the grave with it.

Yes, Pa Adams was my father-in-law.

I did promise not to embark on this issue after my cyber altercation with Lawyer Iscandri on the matter. my dear brother, Sidi Sheriff mentee of AO conteh has responded to my narrative. It is therefore important and civil to respond to his own interpretation of my 'facts'. I cannot do so now as i am somewhere that i cannot produce some of the information he has requested;


1. The letter to the British High commission in belize - that letter is at my home and would be able to show it to Sidi upon my return on the 19th instant;

2. The claim that I misappropriated fund/grants for the disadvantaged can be checked out from some of our previous funders - I entreat all to check out the following websites and type the name James baimba Kabia Foundation Trust to see if there was any mishandling of funds:

a) www.biglotteryfund.org.uk
b) www.charity-commission.gov.uk

3. My claims for believing that AO Conteh was instrumental in setting the stage for the treason charge levied against my father can be found in the 21 September 1981 edition of 'West Africa' magazine; the the interview By Anne Bolsover with AO Conteh in new York during his visit in Septerber 1981 - also in the same West Africa magazine edition and the ICFTU Review 1981.

4. My encounter with law enforcement in the UK has nothing to do with embezzlement of funds - you can request a profile on my person and you will only get that which is unconnected with that which you have posited. yes, I was having problems with the lqaw and that had to do with my refusal to succeemb to their heavyhandedness on our people - check the records. the last incident ( 14 November 2004) saw me walk out of court with £20,000.00 as compensation from the initiator of the problem. I refused to make a claim against the police. I very well know the source of your info - he is feeding with what is burning him. You can check the records at the Camberwell Magistrates Court - I was acquitted on all counts of assault against police officers.

Sidi, your mentor made me a survivor and I am happy that God blessed me by making me able to defend myself against all odds. You are a different kettle of raw bonga.

Concerning my meaningful contributions to our homelands - I will not be tempted to abuse my values "what the right hand does the left hand should not know". Your informant should be able to tell you about my contributions. ask him what he benefited from my endeavours!!!

Can you explain to Sierra Leoneans the meaningful and developmental contributions your mentor made to his home town or Sierra Leone? You will not!! All is lip-service.

I will respond to you properly when I return to my home. Stay Blessed bro and look on the bright side. Do not let this dapen your reality - if my father offends another, I will tell it to my father - 'You are wrong' - no such guts Sidi - you too entwined - May God have mercy on you. Will surely be back and show you what youy requested - I have no benifit to gain from besmearing your mentor.


--------------------------------------------------------

SIDI SHERIFF WRITES :

I am extremely grateful to the many contributions from, Cocorioko, Sekou Dauda Bangura, Iscandri etc. Their contributions depict credible and insightful understanding of the political history of our dear Sierra Leone-objective, sincere and void of motive. It just made my job easy. I therefore wasn’t going to respond to Winston because his very contribution to the on going debate revealed so much credibility issues that one reading it could almost sense a Winston fighting against himself. In any case my dear Winston, I am not sure what may have motivated you to enter into this cross fire. Since you have invited me to engage in honest talk and dialogue, I am obliged.

Your recalling of historical facts is so erroneous that it boggles the mind as to how a foreign minister could be solely held responsible for the arrest, detention and subsequent violation of the liberties of your dad. I also do not see how a foreign minister would have anything to do with pacifying a trade unionist to call off a strike action. In my little experience of Sierra Leone politics one would have expected a mentioning of the Attorney-General, the Minister of Internal Affairs, the Minister of Social Welfare or even the Inspector-General of Police at the time. Your focus on Dr. Conteh could well reinforce the spectacle of an unfair great expectation from one single individual who was never the chief executive of the state of Sierra Leone.

My dear Winston, I want to hurriedly point out that Dr. Conteh served his country and the world with distinction. After Sierra Leone, the UN and the Commonwealth who approached him to serve in East Timor and subsequently Belize knew all about his talent, shortcomings and public roles in Sierra Leone using mechanisms that are not available to bigots and small minds. The difference is, they knew and appreciate what objectivity is. Like many other great heroes of the world, Dr. Conteh had to live and deal with all the attendant human frailties of life. He was never, never, never a perfect man but certainly deserves an objective scrutiny of his public record and endeavors. To demonize him just because of his God given gifts and free choice to be APC borders on vain, hateful, envious and cheap subjectivity.

On the issue of Belize, where Dr. Conteh continues to serve with distinction as a Tenured Chief Justice and in the process making sane, objective and patriotic Sierra Leoneans proud, I want to say the following for the benefit of our independent thinking Sierra Leonean readership. Belize as a Caribbean country has a polity that is solidly anchored on the rule of law, unlimited press freedom and multi-party politics. It is not your typical third world African country where government officials are allowed to abuse their offices with impunity.

There is no room for the Governor-General or Prime Minister of Belize to violate the rights of any individual. Given the vibrant nature of the press in Belize, it is unthinkable for a Chief Justice or any individual for that matter to contemplate using the apparatus of State to victimize any individual. The link below would lead anyone to the news achieves of Belize and their many search engines. The nature of your willful and dishonest imagination could be found no where in Belizean news archives.

The fantasy encounter of your brother with Dr. Conteh was a mere concoction that was ultimately intended to serve another purpose since your brother was desperately seeking to get to the US for economic reasons; nothing to do with a threat to his civil liberties in Belize or elsewhere. http://belizenews.com/ Winston’s attempt at fabricating a situation that, in his mind, happened in Belize was easy to expose. In his submission he gave the impression that his brother encountered Chief Justice Conteh in the Belize capital of Belmopan. Winston, because your submission is rooted in dishonesty you failed in your claim of knowing Belize well. I have been to Belize and traveled its length and breath. You may be right about Belmopan being the Capital. Unfortunately for you, the Chambers of the Chief Justice is located in Belize City (the old capital) and not Belmopan.

Also, I would want to challenge you on the issue of your contacts with the British High Commission on behalf of your brother. I know for sure that you did not have cause to engage the British High Commission on anything pertaining to your brother. If you did, please forward your documentation and the responses you got from the Commission. I would endeavor to cross check them with the High Commission in Belize and share the outcome with the public. The age of deception has been relegated to the deep recesses of ancient history. In this age of the communication super highway one should be careful about what claims or cheap bluff they may want to make.

On a personal note, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that you have wallowed in more wealth than Dr. Conteh. Based on your self promulgated theories, Dr. Conteh had so much wealth for which he had nothing to show in terms of the quality of life of his home town of 300 people-wrong baseline and statistics anyway! Since you claim to have encountered more wealth in your sojourn in the UK, I wonder if we should subject you to the same theory of making a difference to your Kambia or Lunsar communities.

As far as I know I am yet to be informed of any modest contributions you may have made to the welfare of our people in Kambia and Lunsar. You undoubtedly have the pleasures of the good life to show for it day in day out in the UK to the point of becoming a person in permanent oblivion and interest to law enforcement. In case you don’t know Winston, the last time I checked, your record with public funds in the UK is murky to say the least. It is therefore appalling to the decent mind that someone who presided over a dubious and murky enterprise in the UK, recklessly and callously squandering colossal funds meant for public programs serving the disadvantaged, would arrogantly gloat in the illusion of self-righteousness to the point of having the temerity of even labeling someone else morally bankrupt.

The trouble with many of our compatriots these days is that, in their eagerness to play up to the gallery, they almost always fail to self examine before they jump into the business of characterizing their fellow citizens. If for a moment, we adopt the format of honest self examination, very few would make postings on the failings of their compatriots. By the way a big than you Maada for the urging!! May be back!!

The slicing off the clitoris in young women and kids is a malpractice that should be banned outrightly.

If as adults, women decide to get rid of the most sensual part of their sexuality, then it's their choice. Until then, I think children should be left to decide their fate, which I think they can do after the age of 21.

Imagine, if for example, as babies the scraping or elimination of our taste buds, was a traditional practice that we would have had to be subjected to? It would have been an unforgivable deprivation wouldn't it?

Clitoris is derived from the Greek word for clitoris, kleitoris, which in turn comes from kleio (to close, as with a door or latch), perhaps in reference to those portions of the labia minora that enclose the clitoris, or to the clitoris as a metaphorical gateway to the vagina.

Some have suggested that clitoris may be derived from the Greek verb for tickle, kleitorizein (the German word for clitoris is der Kitzler, the tickler). However, kleitorizein may be dervied from Kitzler (kleitorizein also means "to touch the clitoris").

Those who have tried with both clitorised and non-clitorised women should know the difference (opinion reserved), and can relate to what is implied here.

Research indicates that the Clitoris, situated beneath
the anterior labial commissure, partially hidden between the anterior ends of the labia minora is an erectile structure, homologous with the penis.

The above is fact proven true, becauses I have myself seen Miss "kleio" harden up, and in certain instances become pungantly prolonged when rightly activated.Hmm,
yummy, yummmy!

It consists of two corpora cavernosa, composed of erectile tissue enclosed in a dense layer of fibrous membrane, united together along their medial surfaces by an incomplete fibrous pectiniform septum; each corpus is connected to the rami of the pubis and ischium by a crus; the free extremity (glans clitoridis) is a small rounded tubercle, consisting of spongy erectile tissue, and highly sensitive.

The clitoris is provided like the penis, with a suspensory ligament, and with two small muscles, the Ischiocavernosi, which are inserted into the crura of the clitoris.

The vestibule (vestibulum vaginæ)— the cleft between the labia minora and behind the glans clitoridis is named the vestibule of the vagina: in it are seen the urethral and vaginal orifices and the openings of the ducts of the greater vestibular glands.

If some of our men wish to do it with women with less sexually sensual drive, then they have an option of getting themselves plastic dolls from sex shops while at the same having the choice of enjoying sex with fully equipped women whenever they (the men) so desire.

FGM is tantamount to the ruthless maiming of innocent civilians by the RUF, and should be condemned unabatedly.

I read in the "paper," Professor Margai's plea, not to mention, in utter disgust. Come on, Prof.: the plea is pointless. Was Minah a politician or not? Assuredly, he was politician. Accordingly, any and all narratives that objectify his persona, res gestae, and---indeed---his untergehen are legitimate, even if misguided or, just plain rokoto wrong. But, a decree mandating mummudom, grave silence, from a professor? Only in America.

En passant, Moderator: Does this paper "represent" FBC, as the professor professes? I didn't attend FBC, and it wouldn't surprise you to know that I don't care about FBC. But, my taste should not preclude an answer to the professorial averment. So, what is the answer?

Finally, the professor is somewhat disingenuous. It is not true, as she claims, that Minah was a "...victim [of] the heinous acts of politics in Sierra Leone." Discourse posited at such a monstrously high level of generality may be appropriate in the classroom. In the rough and tumble of real life, i.e. nonprofessorial life, it cannot pass the sniff test.

First, the professor knows or should know that politics is constituted by the acts of politicians interacting with voters. Accordingly, 'politics' does nothing. Rather politicians do things. The issue in this Minah problematic is whether Minah was unjustly executed. Those who answer in the affirmative point to A O Conteh; and those who answer in the negative glorify the legal system: 'due process,' 'right of appeal' and other legal conceptual mumbo jumbo to the layman or woman.

One thing is established with a steel pen: the issue whether Minah's execution was juridical or extra-juridical is a valid historical thematic. And, historians or pundits or "the usual suspects" will not be silenced by a plea for silence from an "academic." Personally, I think that after killing all the lawyers, we should snuff out the academicians.

I attended the University of Phoenix and indeed, you cannot compare FBC to it, as Umpire said.The level and quality of learning of the University of Phoenix is higher than many universities. It is only ignorance which makes somebody condemn that which he does not know.

When you study online, you learn more than when you study on campus. You cannot cram and pass.You have to read and understand every module well before you can complete any question .

And the University makes sure that you participate substantially in all topics throughout the course or else you will not get a passing grade. Every week, you also write one academic paper on your own and contribute to one other academic group work. Some professors give you an outright failing grade if you do not write perfect, academic English and use the APA style correctly.

There is no difference whatsover in the quality of online colleges .Top Universities like Penn State , Drexel , University of Maryland, NYU all offer online degrees and tell you the truth I would rather have an online degree from these colleges than attend FBC--especially the FBC of today.

Perhaps if you were to upgrade to a scholar, rather than rut in your Esq., you might have a shot at writing polysyllabically. Jealous Sierra Leonean Skunk.

Bookman, bookman, bookman: tokens of your type ruined Sierra Leone. (Caution: I use the words "token" and "type" as technical terms in second order predicate logic). You have proferred the inane proposition that a certified thief, A.O. Conteh, is "brilliant." Right? Brilliant at ripping off the poor illiterate people of Sierra Leone. Go away hired gun!

Tupit. Only in your ignorant mind does the word 'oxymoron' attach to a person; according to the conventional rules of English, it is objectively applied to words and ideas ONLY. Since you have AND CANNOT have any ORIGINAL EVIDENCE (in the sense of Husserl's transcendental phenomenology) of my "self," your averment manifests unparalled ignorance and hubris, to boot. So much for your first trashy sentence.

Now you know a man is diseased in his mind and head when he starts talking to himself. You call yourself "umpire", "umpir" and "University of Phoenix online". That's the problem with you college drop-outs from Sierra Leone. When you can not pass any exams from FBC, you get purged and you come to the US illegally. God forbid when you take some multiple-choice easy-going exam and get a C grade, you begin to berate FBC. But I know why..because FBC did not think were good enough to keep you in the system...so they purged you, you got resettlemnt visa, and now we should abolish you mother's tribe....oh colonial mentality.

Take it easy kid. We've allowed you to have fun with your large illiterate words, the way a teenage brat plays with his wee-wee. It's alright though. Just don't go blind with the smut.

You however cross the line when you gratuitously insult FBC. We charitably tolerated you to come up to Aureol, as a deprived peggy, to collect our lunch left-overs...We didn't slam the door in your face, did we? So why are you so angry with us kid? We would have gladly welcomed you to that Olympian citadel of rigorous scholarship had it not been for your proletarian grades. So why the resentment? Take it easy before you choke on your own hifalutin bombast. I will give you a pass for now little boy. But remember, no more cheek from you. You are now in the big leagues.

You appear reasonable. Accordingly, I'll hold my fire. Would you send your son or daughter to the FBC of the past ten years? The point is that doneys riding the train of the ace obscruantist Iscandri, devoid of a sense of historicity, never attempted to determine the scope of my assertion. Trust me, this has nothing to do with FBC. It has everything to do with my trouncing of the erstwhile 'respected' Iscandri. I exposed his true colors. A jerk, if there ever was one.

Accordingly, I respectfully refuse to apologize for a statement that, viewed within its proper historical context, is unqualifiedly TRUE. And since Sierra Leonean 'academics' parade the halls of Western Universities, mostly as "adjunct professors" their deed proves my point. They are not at FBC. Why? The question reflexively answers itself.

If I am dumb, then your two by four professors at FBC are more dumb, and you are the most dumb, despicable to the core of your degenrate being. Degnerate is he who defends a 'university' (the real FBC, fool, was not a university, historical idiot) that sits in a country that carries the bucket in the world. So, where is the beef? There ain't none. Fantasies of a college they never attended; a college, by the way, whose masters were in the United Kingdom; a college founded by colonialists who considered Africans as savages. Only a Krio, therefore, would unqualifiedly sing the glories of this product of the subjugation of the people of Sierra Leone by a depotic British regime. And these stinking Africans, seething with irrationalism, profess their 'love' for an artifact of Sierra Leonean subjugation. Ergo: Only unenlightened Krios and provincials, dying to distinguish themselves from the savages would sing the praises of a college founded on African blood.

They came with marching orders from the fake lawyer; they came 'armed', not with arguments, but with cuss cuss. Man, did I have a ball with these bimbos! As I survey the wreakage, I am constrained to recite the Sura in the Holy Qur'an "The Elephants." Accordingly, I congratulate the Moderator on his judgment: if a man is attacked with invectives in a forum founded on reasoned argumentation, he is moral and legally PRIVILEGED to strike the ENEMY with better weapons. I am convinced I did. And why not? My sources tell me that I was corresponding with a mostly Krio group of crackheads. PB, not our crack, but the real thing. I wore them out: one by one they fell into crackdom which, according to some sources, has now become, to the detriment of sober Krios in Freetown, the drug of choice among some naive Krios and some so called provincials.

As I stated in my "Contribution to the Personal Attack Bramble Bush," this forum must become a forum of reasoned discourse. Now, anyone is free to posit any view without grounds supporting the same. But, there will be none such directed at MY postings. Fire shall meet fire. Signed: KrioBoy/Provincial.

I am confused in this issue. Please forgive me if I sound a little stupid. I am not a woman and no one should expect me to know better. My question is Bondo society FGM or just one of the practices in the society? If it is just part of the society, is it practical to argue that those who argue to ban bondo are a little misingeous? Based on what I was told there are a lot of good practices and teachings in this African society, especially the cultural aspect of it. For instance, during the initiation period, girls are taught how to respect husband, how to do domestic works and most importantly how to be a good wife. So KABS KANU, can you please elighten me or us in this issue since you've written about it extensively?

MORE LAWYER JOKES


1. Recently a teacher, a garbage collector, and a lawyer wound up together at the Pearly Gates.
St. Peter informed them that in order to get into Heaven, they would each have to answer one
question.

St. Peter addressed the teacher and asked, "What was the name of the ship that crashed into the
iceberg? They just made a movie about it." The teacher answered quickly, "That would be the
Titanic." St. Peter let him through the gate.

St. Peter turned to the garbage man and, figuring Heaven didn't REALLY need all the odors that
this guy would bring with him, decided to make the question a little harder: "How many people
died on the ship?" Fortunately for him, the trash man had just seen the movie and answered,
"about 1,500." "That's right! You may enter."

St. Peter then turned to the lawyer. "Name them."


2. A lawyer named Strange died, and his friend asked the tombstone maker to inscribe on his
tombstone, "Here lies Strange, an honest man, and a lawyer." The inscriber insisted that
such an inscr1ption would be confusing, for passersby would tend to think that three men
were buried under the stone. However he suggested an alternative: He would inscribe, "Here
lies a man who was both honest and a lawyer. That way, whenever anyone walked by the
tombstone and read it, they would be certain to remark: "That's Strange!"


3. A very very rich gentleman dies,leaving his fortune to his only living
friends, a Doctor, a
CEO, and a Lawyer. But being the eccentric he was, his will stipulated
that each one must
place their third of the money in his coffin before he is put in his
final resting place. The
funeral comes and goes. Over a year later the three friends are
talking over lunch and the
topic of the old man and his strange ways comes into the conversation.
The Doctor finally
says "I have to be honest, I didn't place ALL of the money into his
coffin, I kept five
million". Then the CEO states "Well, I have to admit that I too kept
some of the cash. Ten
million to be exact". The Lawyer glares at the two and says "I am
ASHAMED of you two,
I wrote a check for the FULL amount!"

4. received a donation from the town's most successful lawyer. The person
in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute.
"Our research shows that out of a yearly income of at least $500,000,
you give not a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give back to the
community in some way?" The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and
replied, "First, did your research also show that my mother is dying
after a long illness, and has medical bills that are several times her
annual income?" Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbled, "Um...no."
"-or that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a
wheelchair?" The stricken United Way rep began to stammer out an
apology but was interrupted, "-or that my sister's husband died in a
traffic accident," the lawyer's voice rising in indignation, "leaving
her penniless with three children?" The humiliated United Way rep,
completely beaten, said simply, "I had no idea..." On a roll, the
lawyer cut him off once again: "-so if I don't give any money to them,
why should I give any to you?"


6. A defending attorney was cross examining a coroner.
The attorney asks, "Before you signed the
death certificate had you taken the man's pulse?"
The coroner says, "No."
The attorney then asks, "Did you listen for a heart beat?"
"No."
"So when you signed the death certificate you had not taken
any steps to make sure the man was dead, had you?"
The corner, now tired of the brow beating says, "Well, let me
put it this way. The man's brain was sitting in a jar on my
desk, but for all I know he could be out there practicing law
somewhere."


7For three years, the young attorney had been taking his
brief vacations at this country inn. The last time he'd
finally managed an affair with the innkeeper's daughter.
Looking forward to an exciting few days, he dragged his
suitcase up the stairs of the inn, then stopped short.
There sat his lover with an infant in her lap!

"Helen, why didn't you write when you learned you were
pregnant?" he cried. "I would have rushed up here, we
could have gotten married, and the baby would have my name!"

"Well," she said, "when my folks found out about my
condition, we sat up all night talkin' and talkin' and
decided it would be better to have a bastard in the
family than a lawyer!"


8 man walks into a friend and sees that his friend's car
is total loss and covered with leaves, grass, branches,
dirt and blood. He asks his friend,
"What's happened to your car?"

"Well," the friend responses, "I ran into a lawyer".

"OK," says the man, "that explains the blood... But what about
the leaves, the grass, the branches and the dirt?"

"Well, I had to chase him all through the park."

9. Sue reports for jury duty as ordered, and promptly asks to be excused
because she believes she's prejudice.

"I took one look at those shifty eyes and that cheap polyester suit and I
immediately knew that he was guilty as sin."

"Sit down," says the judge. "That's the prosecuting attorney

10. What's the difference between a lawyer and a bucket of shit?

The bucket.

8. A big-city lawyer was representing the railroad in a lawsuit filed
by an old rancher. The rancher's prize bull was missing from
the section through which the railroad passed. The rancher only
wanted to be paid the fair value of the bull.

The case was scheduled to be tried before the justice of the
peace in the back room of the general store. The city-slicker
attorney for the railroad immediately cornered the rancher and
tried to get him to settle out of court.

He did his best selling job, and finally the rancher agreed to
take half of what he was asking.

After the rancher had signed the release and took the check,
the young lawyer couldn't resist gloating a little over his
success, telling the rancher, "You are really a country hick, old
man, but I put one over on you in there. I couldn't have won the
case. The engineer was asleep and the fireman was in the
caboose when the train went through your ranch that morning. I
didn't have one witness to put on the stand. I bluffed you!"

The old rancher replied, "Well, I'll tell you young feller, I was a
little worried about winning that case myself, because that

Unlike the malcompetents who infested the SLPP Cabinet, we the supporters of Ernest Koroma better keep our ministers' feet to the fire and make them produce results.

Ministers should not fight tooth and nail to get into office only to chill like a villain in the poshness of the office. Unless we the EBK supporters start demanding results from these people, we will be whistling 'Kamabai, we are caming....Kamabai, we are wenting..." come the next elections.

PRESS SECRETARIAT REPORTS STATE HOUSE, FREETOWN

INTRODUCTION
By Sheka Tarawalie (Press Secretary)

In a bid to acquaint the secretariat with socio-political and economic
developments in opposition heartlands, we decided to make a trip to Bo
and Kenema, the provincial headquarters of the South and East respectively.
It was a first for me after being out of the country for over four years.
The road to these very important regions is currently under construction
by Salini Co – if completed, it will certainly usher in a new era of
mobility for Sierra Leone as a whole.

It was in the south-east that the ecisive battle for presidential victory
was fought in the last elections. Traditionally SLPP, the voters in these
regions were given a choice by the PMDC which splintered from the former
ruling party to pitch tent
with the APC.

The APC government is now four months old. How does the political climate
in the south-east look like now in the face of approaching council
elections? Is the PMDC still popular to the extent of preventing the
SLPP from dominating the councils? I was with a team of press officers,
including Ralph Sawyer, Joseph Kamanda, and Franklyn Koroma. Their
reports (sometimes duplicating and/or complementing each other)
make interesting reading….


SLPP PLANS TO DISRUPT COUNCIL POLLS EXPOSED
By Joseph Kamanda

Plans by the opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) to regroup
ex-combatants from the defunct Civil Defence Forces (CDF), particularly
Kamajors, with a view to win and/or disrupt the forthcoming local
elections, have been exposed recently through investigations conducted
by the Press Secretariat in the Office of the President. It was revealed
that the former Executive Secretary of the defunct Disarmament
Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) programme, Dr. Francis Kai Kai,
has given over thirty million Leones to his uncle, one Mr. Kai-Kai of
Pujehun who was a strong former CDF Chief Initiator, to mobilize ex-Kamajors
to disrupt the up-coming Local Government elections.

Dr. Kai Kai, who is expected to replace Foreign Affairs and International
Cooperation Minister, Mrs. Zainab Hawa Bangura, as second-in-command in the
United Nations Mission in Liberia, has also covertly declared for the
leadership of the SLPP and wants to use his questionable DDR reputation
to justify why south-eastern people should support his move as a leader
for the 2012 presidential contest.

In order to stretch his wings beyond the borders of Sierra Leone, the former
DDR Executive Secretary has already reportedly sent an advance team of
notorious SLPP members including big names like John Benjamin and John Karimu
to Liberia with huge sums of money to also regroup veteran Kamajor fighters.
One Abdulai Brima Caulker of Pujehun told the Presidential Press Secretariat
that both Karimu and Benjamin are presently residing in Hotel Africa in
Monrovia, mapping out strategies to present Dr. Francis Kai-Kai as SLPP
presidential candidate for the 2012 elections.

Mr. Caulker revealed that the ex-combatants, especially Kamajors, who gained
little or nothing from the unsuccessful DDR are really angry that Kai Kai’s
reintegration programme has left them in the lurch, without employment or the
tools for self-employment. “Dr. Francis Kai Kai should just swallow his
ambition for the presidential candidacy, because we the former CDFs are not
prepared for any retrogression but to march to the tune of this new
dispensation under the responsible leadership of President Ernest Bai Koroma,”
Caulker declared.

He however revealed that Dr. Kai Kai has registered over four hundred ex-CDF
fighters in all chiefdoms in the Southern and Eastern regions to lend support
to the SLPP for the up-coming council as well as in the 2012 presidential polls.

KENEMA PORN FILM PRODUCER ON THE RUN
By Joseph Kamanda

A Lebanese businessman caused commotion in Kenema over the weekend.
Pornographic film producer, Kassim Jaffa, is reported to have gone in hiding
having produced a movie that starred over thirty-eight naked locals women
ranging from school girls to house wives. Jaffa, who has been secretly
filming women including his ‘main’ girlfriend as they make love with him,
went into hiding two weeks before Police in Kenema learnt that he is the
producer of the now infamous pornographic movie.

As the news of the movie making rounds in private hands circulated, the
Kenema Police last Saturday afternoon got a tip that it was to be publicly
shown at a make-shift video centre at Lumbaybu in the outcast of the city.

Police got wind of the circulation and screening of the said controversial
pornographic movie when a poster for its showing was displayed at the centre.
This angered the family of one of the filmed nude girls. Alarm raised by
Methodist and Islamic communities suddenly transformed the entire atmosphere
into a stone-throwing scene. When the video centre in question was raided by
the Police, some people were arrested as well as digital-video-disc (DVD) and
television sets.

Eyewitness accounts disclosed that upon the arrival of the Police team,
the centre manager (whose name was not disclosed up to the moment the
investigation team left Kenema city), ejected the film from the DVD set
and ran away with it before the police could lay hands on him. The so-called
Kassim Jaffa pornographic movie is now reportedly a home video not only in
Kenema but has reached in some parts across the country. Unconfirmed reports
state that it is now being secretly played in private homes as well as
entertainment spots in the city.

The movie however has its commercial sex angle as the Press Secretariat
learnt that most of the girls and women starred in the film were paid cast
fees by the Lebanese man before going on camera. Assistance Inspector General
of Police (AIG) Eastern Region Elizabeth Turay, told the Press Secretariat
that the investigation is still on course to track down the producer but
disclosed that there is yet no link to rope Jaffa, and added that somebody
or the evidence has to link him before he can be declared wanted.

“BO IS VOLATILE” - LUC DABOR
By Ralph Sawyer

The Local Unit Commander of Bo, Chief Superintendent F. U. K. Dabor, has described
the township as a very volatile zone and therefore very difficult to deal with
especially during political periods. He admitted the situation is very difficult
to work in, especially in the absence of tolerance in the political consciousness
of the township. As a result, he said, there is the need for a lot of community
work to be done.

Replying to comments that the AIG South Desmond Buck has not been pro-active,
LUC Dabor referred to Buck as the professional Head who does not need to be present
in areas of incidences He asserted that the police is short of money, to the extent
that vehicles are parked for lack of repairs. He said crime rate is low;
notwithstanding, the police are holding firm on the ground, naming assault as one of
the common crimes committed. He said ghettos are usually raided to deter crime and
other related vices.

Defending some officers observed to be sleeping while on duty, LUC Dabor said they
are special forces on stand-by, and “therefore just relaxing”. On the rate of
economic activities in Bo town, LUC Dabor said it is slowly picking up after the
political power change, adding that mining is being done in the environs in diamond and
gold. He admitted that some form of smuggling and illegal mining are going on. Dabor
said the overall situation in Bo town is calm and quiet, and
the police are on top of the situation.

FIRE GUTS TWO POLICE BLOCKS IN KENEMA
Ralph Sawyer

A raging fire has completely burnt down a two-apartment police block rendering thirty
inmates homeless with loss of property estimated at over 60 million leones. The incident
took place in Kenema town just opposite the Kenema Police Station lastTuesday afternoon
while most of the occupants were out, in the absence of a regional Fire Force Department.
According to the two heads of the family, SGT 4330 Idrissa Kamara and SGT 2871 Alex Baio,
the cause of the fire was due to sparking electric cables connected to the house.

They revealed that the cables had over the past days been observed to be sparking
whenever there was power. This was attributed to the low water level at the dam which
caused the supply of current to fluctuate. The victims said that a report to the
relevant authorities was not taken seriously, and therefore not acted upon.The two
distressed families are presently being accommodated at a make-shift canteen two
hundred meters away from the scene of the incidence with no adequate basic facilities.
They added that even books and uniforms were not salvaged; as a result their children
could not go to school nor can they afford to cook their daily meals.

When State House Press contacted the Assistant Inspector General of Police East
Elizabeth Turay for her comments with regards the welfare of the affected officers
and their families, she lamented that the force is financially weak and that in
fact there is no provision for such disasters. However, the Resident Minister East
Hon. William J Smith has, through Vice President Sam Sumana, been able to solicit
an emergency fund of Five Million Leones which has already been presented to the
AIG for the affected officers. The Resident Minister said the Fullah, Lebanese and
other vibrant institutions will be contacted for help to rebuild the blocks. Hon Smith
has promised he would ensure that the necessary modalities are put in place for a fire
engine to be stationed in Kenema.


DIARY OF STATE HOUSE PRESS VISIT TO RESIDENT MINISTER SOUTH

By Franklin Koroma

Following the successful tour of the provinces by President Ernest Bai Koroma,
the State House Press Secretariat headed by Sheka Tarawalie and accompanied
by press officers Joseph Kamanda, Ralph Sawyer, Franklin Koroma and their
driver Hudson Tarawalie, embarked on a trip to Bo and Kenema with the aim
to check on provincial activities. On the way going, we made a short stop at
Masiaka junction where I bought a note-book to record the step-by-step
activities. We arrived there at 8:30 am and departed at 9:00 am.

We entered Moyamba district at 10:30 am and we had our breakfast there: the
sauce was goat soup backed up with soft drinks. Departed 11:25 Salcost Company
is currently on their road construction and has come close to Tayamah Bridge
from the Bo end. After the long journey through the highway forests, we finally
and safely reached in Bo town at 12: 30 pm and drove straight to the offices of
the Ministries of Local Government and Information & Communication where
different civil servants work together with the Resident Minister, Musa
Tarawalie. Unfortunately, Mr. Tarawalie was not there. The Press Secretary
called him, and he asked us to meet him at his residence, where we met him at
around 2:00 pm.

Minister Musa Tarawalie received us with a warm welcome and happiness. In his
quiet time with us, we had a short meeting with regards to his official
workload as a minister. He told us that throughout the week he had been meeting
with local figures ranging from Chiefs, Educators and the youths in ghettos and
summoned them to a general meeting so that they would see reason why they should
fully support the ideals and progress of the All People’s Congress (APC) under
the dynamic leadership of His Excellency President Ernest Bai Koroma.

The Minister explained that by holding these meetings with them, he is actually
helping in propagating the light of the APC party as a means of bringing them
closer to join in the development of Sierra Leone as a whole. He said, “I believe
that such meetings will create a positive impact and increase our chances for a
decisive victory in the up-coming council elections.”

Mr. Tarawalie has been moving from Bo to Kenema to Pujehun to marshal more
support for the APC. The Minister stated that the cornerstone of his political
strategy at the moment is to let President Ernest Bai Koroma have a strong
following in the southern province, as he believes that such action will be a
well-prepared gate-way for victory in the Local Government Elections.

On the security situation in the township, the Minister questioned the loyalty
and commitment of the leadership of the police. He hinted that there is some of
lawlessness in Bo because the police leadership is sometimes dormant.
The Minister finds it hard to communicate and coordinate with the Assistant
Inspector General South Desmond Buck. The Minister said needed the support of
all the police in Bo so that they can collaboratively work for the benefit of
the community.

The Minister lauded the efforts of LUC F.U.K. Dabor, but reserved more praise
for para-military Police officer Yette Yette who is very hard-working and
committed. The Minister however regretted that the head of the paramilitary
wing of the police in Bo does not even have a vehicle to facilitate more rapid
responses to situations. Resident Minister Tarawalie said he needs a press
officer that will be covering all his programs with a view to informing the
public more accurately and appropriately. We left the Minister’s house at
about 3:45 pm


POLICE VIOLATE 3-MONTH-OLD BABY’S HUMAN RIGHTS
By Ralph Sawyer

The human rights of a 3-month-old baby have been completely violated by police
officers attached to the Kenema Police Station when she was detained under
humid conditions together with her mother for two nights without food on a case
of alleged wounding. According to Woman Police Officer 11086 Musa J, the mother
Iye Saffa a 20-year-old suckling mother is detained (together with her baby
Mustapha Turay) for fighting with and wounding a neighbour, 14-year-old pupil
Elizabeth over alleged “provocations.”

When State House Press visited the station unannounced, the baby was observed
to be perspiring and crying bitterly while the mother was sitting on a bench
behind the counter, handcuffed on one hand that was chained to the window pane
while holding her baby with the other hand. When questioned on her condition,
Iye Saffa lamented that she had been denied bail for two nights under such
unbearable conditions, without food or any medical attention, not even for
the helpless baby.

11086 Musa J said they could not help the baby in any way as the police is
handicapped financially and otherwise. When the attention of the Assistant
Inspector General East Elizabeth Turay was drawn to the plight of the baby,
she ordered that bail be immediately granted and she provided money to buy
food for both mother and baby. She lamented that most of the young girls don’t
concentrate on their studies but rather on high life, causing crimes and
finding short-cut excuses like carrying their young ones when under
interrogation to gain sympathy.

This crop of "apc leaders" is so pathetic that nothing is going to change in that country for as long as they remain in power. The signs are all over the place, just take a quick glance and you'd see - if you have eyes to see, and ears to hear.

When the forumite, Mbalu, made it her life's mission to eradicate Bondo from Sierra Leone, many of us scoffed at her head-in-the-clouds enthusiasm. I was one of her chief deriders. I threw tongue-in-cheek jabs at her and even suggested that she would be 'recircumcised' if she dared to talk bull in a 'Yarrmah'. Through it all, Mbalu was tenacious, focused and unfazed.
Seems as if Mbalu's quest has gone mainstream, in a big way, in Salone. When I read the Cocorioko article today, I ordered myself a big take-out of crow for lunch. Congrats Mbalu and continued success in your quest.

S. Leone police arrest 26 after oil depot shootout
Mon 11 Feb 2008, 15:54 GMT

FREETOWN, Feb 11 (Reuters) - Police in Sierra Leone have arrested 26 suspected armed robbers after a gunfight lasting several hours at an oil refinery in the capital Freetown late on Sunday, a senior officer in the West African country said.

Police had to call in paramilitary reinforcements after the gang opened fire when officers tried to prevent its members filling two tanker trucks with stolen fuel at the oil depot, on the east side of the city.

"The police were (initially) unable to make any arrests because the robbers were firing," the senior police officer, who asked not to be named, told Reuters on Monday.

"An SOS was sent to the paramilitary boss who sent heavily armed men to reinforce ... The reinforcement team on their way to the oil refinery came in contact with one of the loaded tankers trying to escape and shot one of its tyres."

Sierra Leone, a former British colony, was torn apart by a 1991-2002 civil war which left its infrastructure in ruins.

Many in Freetown live without piped water or mains electricity and even the wealthy rely on diesel generators to power homes and businesses.

Some former combatants, including ex-child soldiers forced to fight with rebel forces or government militias, eke out a living selling diesel in old liquor bottles on street corners.

The head of security at the refinery was among those arrested, police said. (Reporting by Christo Johnson; Writing by Nick Tattersall; Editing by Giles Elgood

The ugly stains that mottled our politics under the APC's one-party system may be fading away, but the APC itself is yet to understand the essentials of democratic politics. Although it operates on new political contours, today's APC still bears the mind set of its oppressive ancestor, the old APC. Clearly allergic to critical opinions, the "new" APC likes to play ethnic politics while pretentiously disavowing regionalism. I am reacting to an article on COCORIOKO in which the writer implied that all the uncharitable analyses written about Dr. Abdulai Conteh must have come out of "Southeastern bigotry." When the SLPP was in power, "Mende tribalism" was the bete noire, and most, if not all, of the APC's moralists made it a "patriotic" duty to harangue Southeasters with pitiless scorn. As a simple rule of thumb, the "new" APC should have cleansed itself from the dirt of its ruinous past by acting as a new pathfinder to cleaner politics in Sierra Leone. Placing raw tribal recruits to run our Foreign Ministry was the last act of foolishness expected of a party that used "Mende tribalism" as a campaign theme while in opposition.
As Northernization holds firm in our country, all indications are that the APC is invoking the old names that made one-party dictatorship a possibility in Sierra Leone.

The reappearance of Dr. Abdulai Conteh within the fold of the "new" APC stands as an ill-omen against democracy in Sierra Leone. There is nothing "Southeastern" about the stir being caused by Dr. Conteh's closeness to Ernest Koroma. Our apprehensions are based on Dr. Conteh's proclivity to derail even the best-intentioned government for the furtherance of his own ambitions. Those who bear the greatest responsibility for sustaining Siaka Stevens' version of the Third Reich cannot be expected to become Wilsonian democrats overnight. If we must keep it, this democracy must be run by a truly NEW APC. Those who misperceive such a simple fact for "Southeastern bigotry" are only undermining Ernest Koroma and the poor country he leads. Ernest Koroma may have thought of retooling the APC into a "new" party free of yesterday's culprits, but his political convictions have so far failed to make him break away from the old APC. Flying to Addis Ababa to shore up the {African Union} candidacy of a never-tiring opportunist like Abdulai Conteh was a waste of Sierra Leonean time and a needless extension of the Northernization begun at home. After several years of holding upper echelon posts in Sierra Leone with nothing to write home about, Dr. Conteh should not continue to catch the fancy of a supposedly "new" APC. My worry is that Ernest Koroma still sees political material in the same people he is trying to detach from the "new" APC. If Ernest Koroma is a true business man, he should know what goods are sellable to the public at specific financial times. Dr. Abdulai Conteh is a damaged commodity. If the man cannot point to any political achievement made while serving in all the key positions he held in the past, attempts to foist him on any public could make Ernest Koroma look like an old APC man with hollow promises for a new day.

The APC knew that he was the only strong southerner in thrie midst, so they looked for a way to get rid of him. Dauda's writings are always critical of the mende tribe, these are people who claimed to be educated, he does not even belive that people have right to belong to a political party of their choice. Anybody who belong to a political party beside APC is considered an enemy

SLeone women step up pressure to eradicate female circumcision Wed Feb 6, 3:35 PM ET


FREETOWN (AFP) - Women's rights advocacy groups in Sierra Leone are piling up pressure on authorities for the speedy eradication of female circumcision prevalent in the country, one campaigner said on Wednesday.

Finda Fraser, coordinator of the Advocacy Network, said a coalition of 16 women organisations had launched a campaign to gather views on the harmful practice commonly referred to as female genital mutilation (FGM) "on how to forge ahead and advocate for its eradication from our community."

Herself a victim of FGM Fraser said, "It but it is against our human rights and should not be practised in Sierra Leone. It is an issue which the government and women's organisations should work to stop quickly."

Social Welfare Minister Haja Musu Kandeh on Monday expressed her government's commitment to ban the practice but did not state when it would take effect.

Sudanese-born Enshore Ahmed, a UN advisor on gender issues in the west African country, noted that Sierra Leone and Sudan top the list of countries in terms of prevalence of female genital mutilation in Africa.

"We have a lot to do to eradicate the practice. I am appealing to the government to engage in the process of having a law endorsed against the practice," she urged.

The country's gender and children's rights law passed by parliament last year does fall shy of explicit mention of the the practice.

An estimated between 35 and 40 percent of women in the country undergo circumcision, traditionally believed to control female sexuality and make girls more "marriageable."

Still carried out in 28 African countries according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), FGM often causes infection and sometimes death.

Overall, between 100-140 million girls and women have undergone female genital mutilation worldwide, the WHO reports. Some three million girls yearly are at risk of infection, the agency says.

When people go shouting about how harmful bundu is, it makes me laugh. They even go as far as giving it all sort of names.

The thing that continues to baffle me is how africans are very fast to swallow anything the white man tells them hook, line and sinker.

Many girls in the country are not forced into this practice at all but go their willingly but the so-called women rights advocacy are trying to sell a completely different story.

Why cant they allow people to live their lives in peace. The only thing I would like in the practice is to allow the girls to decide for themselves rather than forcing them to join at a very young agae. Rather than that, I dont have anything against the custom. It is a custom that must be allowed to continue because it is embedded in our culture and traditions. It is one of the things that seperate us from caucasians. In fact some of them do practice it though it is not part of their own culture.

Let us look at some of the prctices and hoilidays that are celebrated worldwide and are well respected and you will see how we have been made to beklieve that anything not caucasian is bad. They have even succeeded in controlling our thought. We need to as Bob marley said "Emancipate ourselves from mental slavery". It is only then that we can be really free.

Christmas -- December 25. Original day of the winter soltice when the Romas honor their pagan God Saturn. Changed to the birth of chriast when the Roman empire became christian during the reign of constantine. Most of the celebrations crelated o christmas are actually pagan cults that were practiced in europe before christianity.

Santa Claus - Originated in the pagan worship of the Norse God Odin. During the winter, children placed their boots near the chimney, filling them with carrots or straw as a gift for Sleipnir. When Odin flew by, he rewarded the little ones by leaving gifts in their boots. In several Germanic countries, this practice survived despite the adoption of Christianity. As a result, the gift-giving became associated with St. Nicholas -- only nowadays, we hang stockings rather than leaving boots by the chimney!

Haloween - In pre-Christian Britain, October 31st was considered as the eve of New Year, when the souls of the dead - especially those who had died in the past year - were believed to revisit their homes. On this day ghosts walked and mingled with the living, or so the Celts thought. The townspeople baked food all that day and when night fell they dressed up and tried to resemble the souls of the dead. Hoping that the ghosts would leave peacefully before midnight of the new year the people carried the food to the edge of town and left it for them. After it became a "Christian" festival, the evil supernatural symbolic associations continued - alongside such customs as the shaping of a demonic face out of a hollow pumpkin, in which a candle is placed. In the Halloween which people celebrate today, many of the practices have a direct association with witchcraft. Much later, when Christianity spread throughout Ireland and October 31 was no longer the last day of the year, Halloween became a celebration mostly for children. "Ghosts" went from door to door asking for treats, or else a trick would be played on the owners of the house. When millions of Irish people immigrated to the United States in the 1840s the tradition came with them.

Easter - Easter got its name from Ostara, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of fertility and rebirth. European tribes celebrated the beginning of spring at the vernal equinox, when day and night are equal in length, by blessing seeds for growth and placing colored eggs on an altar. They believed that this ceremony would bring them fertility for the upcoming year. Christian missionaries noticed that this pagan celebration took place around the time of the resurrection of Christ, so they adopted Easter as a Christian holiday to increase conversions to Christianity.

Easter Hare
The Romans believed that all life proceeded from an egg, so the egg came to symbolize birth and rebirth. Christians regarded eggs as the seeds of life and attributed them with the symbol of Jesus' resurrection.

The rabbit was used in early Easter celebrations to symbolize fertility, perhaps because these animals give birth to multiple offspring at a time. Anglo-Saxon mythology says that Ostara changed her pet bird into a rabbit to entertain a group of children, and the rabbit laid brightly colored eggs for them.


We can see here that nearly all celebrations by the so-called civilised world are really pagan practices but you never hear a single condemnation of them by africans. Yet these same africans are the same to jump on the bandwagon of condemning their own practices just because of dollar. When we go dancing along the streets of Freetown with our PADDLE or BLOODY MARY they will start talking crap. If you dont want to partake in our custom;, fine, but please dont go around condeming it as that is what we believe in and what we will continue to do.

Slicing off the clitoris of young women and children is a malpractice that should be banned. If as adults, women decide to get rid of the most sensual part of their sexuality, then it's their choice. Until then, I think children should be left to decide their fate, which I think they can do after the age of 21.

Imagine if for example, as babies the scraping of our taste buds, was a traditional practice we had to be subjected to?

Clitoris is derived from the Greek word for clitoris, kleitoris, which in turn comes from kleio (to close, as with a door or latch), perhaps in reference to those portions of the labia minora that enclose the clitoris, or to the clitoris as a metaphorical gateway to the vagina.

Some have suggested that clitoris may be derived from the Greek verb for tickle, kleitorizein (the German word for clitoris is der Kitzler, the tickler). However, kleitorizein may be dervied from Kitzler (kleitorizein also means "to touch the clitoris").

Those who have tried clitorised and non-clitorised women know the difference (opinion reserved).

Research indicates that the Clitoris, situated beneath
the anterior labial commissure, partially hidden between the anterior ends of the labia minora is an erectile structure, homologous with the penis.

The above is very true fact, as I have, in some in seen Miss Clio harden up, and in certain instances become prolonged when rightly activated.

It consists of two corpora cavernosa, composed of erectile tissue enclosed in a dense layer of fibrous membrane, united together along their medial surfaces by an incomplete fibrous pectiniform septum; each corpus is connected to the rami of the pubis and ischium by a crus; the free extremity (glans clitoridis) is a small rounded tubercle, consisting of spongy erectile tissue, and highly sensitive.

The clitoris is provided like the penis, with a suspensory ligament, and with two small muscles, the Ischiocavernosi, which are inserted into the crura of the clitoris.

The vestibule (vestibulum vaginæ)— the cleft between the labia minora and behind the glans clitoridis is named the vestibule of the vagina: in it are seen the urethral and vaginal orifices and the openings of the ducts of the greater vestibular glands.

If some of our men wish to do it with women with less sexually sensual drive, then they have an option of getting themselves plastics dolls from sex shops.

I advocate for the right to self mutilate. For all those who maintain that the practice is great and wonderful, even when it is against the law; cut your own clitoris off. That will be a great way to show you aren't buying what the white man is selling! I don't know of many cultures or societies that remain the same. Once you mix with other cultures, you are bound to begin to adopt some of their practices. The only time I have seen cultures remain the same is when they are isolated. It is good that this debate is on and that the cultural norms are being challenged. I always marvel at how people love to go on the attack of the white man around this same issue, but never have a problem with the white man when receiving millions of dollars, euros, and pounds on an annual basis. If you have a problem with the white man's ideaology, take a stand and start refusing the money too.

A dream of Bo School is not a good dream. The motto Manners Maketh Man was thoroughly misrepresented from a practical standpoint by students of that school during my days at the legendary CKC. A dream of CKC by a Bo School alumnus, on the contrary, will surely bring him financial windfalls. So next time you go bed repeat the CKC motto, Adveniat Regnum Tuum (Thy Kingdom come) five times and you realize what I have said.

Mr. Adrian Q. Labor

Mr. Labor has worked on the issues of building networks among Sierra Leoneans abroad and their counterparts back home since his days at the Engineering Faculty of McGill University (Canada). Upon graduation, he coordinated the SierraNet Project (funded by the International Development Research Centre, IDRC) that established an email network and Internet link for University of Sierra Leone colleges to connect with other students in universities abroad. Much of the SierraNet Project successes were eroded during the war years but the lessons learned became the basis of yet another initiative. In his current capacity as the Sierra Leone Portal Project Coordinator, Adrian is attempting to develop an online infrastructure that will enable Sierra Leone Professionals in the Diaspora to collaborate with their counterparts back home while maintaining the critical information to spur further action. He is particularly interested in energy issues and is the moderator of the energy sub-portal. He maintains these interests alongside a civil engineering career in North America.

Chez, is this the country we are arguing about? Me thinks, rats on Connecticut Avenue in DC live better than those sorry souls. How did it get to this? Kroobay is next to Prince of Wales, my high school. Any ideas whether it has been Kroobayed? Any ideas about Pa. Sawyer, Jonah and the rest of those master teachers?

Beyond the personal, how did it get to this?

No Idea about either Sawyer or Jonah! I am not sure if Iscandri(Jokani aka Waskaleh) can assist in locating Jonah:

But "Pa Deigh Di Dado" is dead,and so is "Jackass Plus plus" Fowler, AB Ben-George and "Pa Willie "Woodwork":

I believe "Russia with Rush" Wiltshire Johnson is still Kicking. He became Lecturer at FBC was later appointed Government Minister.

"Discipuli State" Rogers Wright went on to become Principal at Collegiate School and is now a Reverend and Preacherman.

"Easy Man" Carpenter became Clerk of the House.

Does anyone know what became of Pa Inyang,Mammy Thorpe,Nelson Williams and others?

Message:
Chez Winakabs Europe how is Britain? Long time no talk. I was expecting your visit to Sacramento, California as you promised to no avail. Well, that is life. I know you are a busy man. I just hope you are o.k.
Umpire, the simple answer is because we argue rather discussing the real issues. We are our own enemies and should this hate continue, should this greed and selfishness continue, Sierra Leone is not far gone from the dark days when we will again take weapons against ourselves, and stupidly butcher each other and then turn around and say ooops, had I known.
That has been Blackness, it has been “Africanism” and it has been the plight of our people.
Go back in history, in all Black struggles, in all African history after independence. Starting with Burkina Faso, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Guinea, Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Southern Africa, Uganda, and in North America. We struggled for independence, we gained it then we make coups against each other, kill each other and the struggles remain the same. Those who escaped are afraid to return. A forum like this reminds me of those struggles. I just finished watching Malcolm X. Who killed him; I mean who pulled the trigger: the Black man of course. Why? Jealousy.
I am an insinuation of Africa. Until we change such attitude and read about these struggles and how they have impacted our socio-political lives, understand them and not read them to emulate those who did wrong but learn from the wrongs done to right them, Sierra Leone, and Africa for that matter, will remain in trash regardless of who tries to make a difference because it is those who try to make a difference we hate therefore, we trash our nations in such angers.
Are we problem solvers or just those who talk to gain the frontline? Do we do things for the benefit of all or for just our personal gains? It is that we argue, which will resolve no problems. The day we start discussing with an agenda to change Africa, even two people, if resolute, can change Africa or the entire world for that matter. But how can we change something we know nothing about or have scanty ideas about? How can we change anything when we are glued to petty insignificant issues? How can we change something in a divisive mindset, where every one is promoting just their agenda, dubious or straight forward? Look at them!
The former Africans knew the problems, the history of their people and had an agenda. But most or all political parties, all organizations and single individuals today are not intended to make real change in Africa because no two people in Africa today have the love of that continent or their countries that they will be willing to forfeit any and everything, resolutely committed to just that, change the continent that is not involved personal gains. Yes we had leaders and other Africans that were committed to the struggles of Africa, which did not, in their minds, end with the breaking of the chains, the freedom from Apartheid, Colonialism and Segregation but extended to self-esteem, self-love, self-reliance and self esteem in a free and equitable global market.
I will bet my life that a majority has the scanty idea of wanting to change but paramount in their mind is themselves and what they can instantaneously gain from it. Either that or that their burning desire is eroded away by the persuasion or discouragement of another, African. How can change be effected? In such instances, it is obvious that the desire was not there in the first place. How can change be effected? When each caters for themselves no matter what?
Until the African thinking that has shammed the fabric of our communities is redirected to embracing reasoning, conscience being the guide, we shall never make a difference and the trash will keep going and coming back to base. We must not argue but engage ourselves in intellectual dialogue with a plan in mind to be able to usher-in change. We cannot all be in the front at the same time. Therefore, we must give peace a chance and love our brothers and sisters as we love our country. Love is not a commodity. There are no markets where smartness is sold, just as there is no market where love is sold. If it is bought, it depreciates. If it is not there it is not there. We cannot force ourselves to be loved or admired as others. True admiration comes from the exhibition of character and integrity. If one admires another for what they have and not their character, when what the latter has is gone, it will go with the former. Most of us love Sierra Leone for what she can do for us not because it is our responsibility to love, change and develop her because we are patriots. This is why we argue and play no mind to who and what might asses our character or to whom or what will fail through such undertakings. When we love, we try to know about what we love. When we know about what we love, we dialogue rather than argue to change whatever is out of line.
Please do not take it that I am constantly responding to you for any other specific reasons but for the fact that I see some qualities in you that value dialogue rather than argue. If the latter was the case, I would rather watch television, go to school or work because those can be personally beneficial than waste my precious time on fruitless endeavors. But my presence here, your presence here must be valuable for the purpose for which this forum was created.
I use to be a party man and know how to enjoy bad but I dedicated myself to change for the better of Sierra Leone by any means possible. When I'm gone, I will rest in peace that I made my contribution and history will explain my legacy, to which there will be no denial regardless of who likes or hates it.
History will explain the rest. Must we argue or dialogue important issues; do we know or care about Sierra Leonean issues to dialogue? Because in dialogue we present what we know without anger or side tricks in a bid to gain favor. I hope this forum is exploited for dialogue in a sentiment of brotherhood to bringing the best out of everyone in making and moving towards the desired change, which something beneficial for the entire Sierra Leone.
In conclusion, let me remind all that the trash is a burden when what it does or how it got there is not understood and conceptualized. When teaching the idea that trash clogs human brains and harbors infectious diseases of all kinds is grasped by all Sierra Leoneans, the issue of trash will never be a problem but are we committed to sacrifice to making this change? Then let us value education and value the sacrifices others make no matter how humongous or small they might be and cooperate with them to usher-in the necessary change. Let us respect each other and ourselves, which will only promote camaraderie and fraternity. That is civilization. We would have never known of Plato, Aristotle, Einstein, John Lock, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Montesquieu and Socrates if education and sacrifice was a waste of time. However there were those civilized ones who thought that the contributions made by these will add to civilization from which latter generations will add their marks, saw to it that their names remain and are never forgotten by those interested in their works and human civilization. It is that mark, that contribution, we must endeavor to make rather than engaging in frivolous pursuits and unrealistically self-serving gossips, I would hope.
By and large, we must not forget that Sierra Leone is today enjoying electricity therefore, if the service continues, history will be rewritten but we have a responsibility to the Green White and Blue and not just claim we are Sierra Leoneans when the Green White and Blue flies shamefully. It is shame whenever we claim nationality under such a flag. Remember that.
Thanks for your time.

Preservation of Einstein's Brain

A photograph of Einstein's brain from 1955.Einstein's brain was removed, weighed and preserved by Thomas Stoltz Harvey, the pathologist who performed the autopsy on Einstein. He claimed he hoped that cytoarchitectonics would reveal useful information. [1] Harvey injected 10% formalin through the internal carotid arteries and afterwards suspended the intact brain in 10% formalin. Harvey photographed the brain from many angles. (each about 10cm3) and encased the segments in a plastic-like material called celloidin. [2][3] Harvey may also have removed Einstein's eyes, and given them to Henry Abrams. [4] He was apparently fired from his position at Princeton Hospital shortly thereafter for refusing to relinquish the organs.

Good night.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I am a lawyer. Nevertheless, I think lawyers, especially Sierra Leonean lawyers in the States---recalling here a hate poll taken recently---rank next to rats, followed by roaches. I refrain from saying a word about A. Iscandri, Esq. here, since he gave up the verbal fight. Imagine: a lawyer ducking a verbal duel! I await a response to my challenge: produce arguments that would convince an unbiased audience that Dr. A.O.Conteh is not a thief. Lawyer, please don't come back with: "trash,trash,trash." Reason, at least, the manipulative reason of lawyers, mandates arguments be proffered to vindicate the moral standing of this so-called "brilliant" colleague. For my part, if he is reasonably shown to have attempted to convert monies belonging to the people of Sierra Leone, then he should be stripped of his license to practice law anywhere on God's earth.

Directive: if you want to improve your moral backbone, stay away from lawyers. And you retort: et tu? And I answer: I am in it strictly for the money. Anybody has a problem with me pimping "Western Education"?

Where is your evidence that I "maliciously intend to drag [AO's reputation in the mud and muck [I] wallow in....?" It appears to me that your philological skills are stale: learn to read closely.

Moreover, I never invited you to convince me; rather, I asked you to address the patriots. Don't dodge the question: do you believe that AO is a thief or not? Talk to the forum, not me, for I am fairly satisfied that the evidence of your postings paints the picture of an old, bored, and intellectually dense 'lawyer'.

AO's reputation? Are you in cloud nine or what? Again, finding yourself between a rock and a hard place, you self-destruct: first, you manifested to the world that you cannot decipher the elements of the topoi of rhetorical discourse; you then attempted to drag the name of the distinguished Senator from New York into the gutter by evidently adopting the wobbly reasoning of a flawed article. Sensing that you could not produce any arguments, even wobbly ones, you resorted to the ruse of a disclaimer: look, that piece has no legs. You approvingly posted it. As I argued in another posting, your position constitutes red hot hypocrisy, if not intellectual dishonesty: your failure to disssociate your position from the author of the article is evidenced by your unequivocal approval of Don Osman's posting.

Regretably, for a lawyer, I find it hard to fathom the sense in your sentences: in my opinion, a substantial chunk of your posting is incoherent. For example, after muttering your unfounded invectives, you posit "[a] constructive notice to [me] of what arguments [you] may (sic) on the issue were [you] to make one." Incredible. Is this the lawyer who was professing in an earlier piece on the syntax and grammar of the English Language. Sir, respectfully, don't you see that when you promise to make "arguments," you cannot make "one [argument]"? Accordingly, your text is barely understandable. Finally, the last time I checked, "useless" is not written as "usless." A seasoned Court of Appeals will not fail to notice such 'slips,' to the detriment of your innocent clients. You claim to be a lawyer. Accordingly, make the demanded arguments on the Clinton issues and the AO issue or.... The problem with lawyers like you is your unfounded claim of scholarly status when, in fact, there is nothing scholarly about the law, at least not at the level of methodology. Nevertheless, methodology or not, make the arguments, not pautopauto soundbits: razor sharp trash, in my opinion.

I THINK HE ENDED UP PAYING THE COMMISSION LE 100,000,000(ONE HUNDRED MILLION LEONES) AS A FINE.BUT AFTER THE NPRC LEFT, DUE TO SOME MANEUVER,CONNECTION AND MANIPULATION, THE KABBAH CORRUPT GOVERNMENT EXPUNGED THE COMMISSION'S RECORD.

So be it. Let him make the arguments. Look, you sound like a reasonable person. The issues in Sierra Leone are deadly serious. Do you think I'm loving it living here? The country is clearly broken. Accordingly, a forum cannot be a site for personal attacks. If you review my programmatic postings today, you should be able to smoke out my strategy: no more nonsense in this forum. To be sure, everyone is free to state whatever position they hold. But, what is it about "bring your reasons with your position" that is understood by these obscurantists? It is so simple. You believe "X" is true, false, or undecidable. Very well: why? Respect for fellow readers suggests that reasons be provided. There is no other way of preventing unreasoned 'rantings.'

For this reason I have refused to respond to Chez Winnakabs article on the issue because I believe that his article reflects how low he has sunk in his so called patriotism. Dr. Abdulai Osman Conteh is an honorable man and nothing you or anyone says would make me believe any different. He has represented sierra leone very well and as the Chief Justice of the state of Belieze he does every sierra leonean proud and that includes you. I have read his opinions while on the bench in Belieze and I am indeed proud of his achievements and so should you.

------------------------------------------------------

I believe partisanship has clouded your mind from understanding the reality. My membership of the SLPP has nothing to do with what I wrote about on the AO Conteh matter. I put Sierra Leone above party politics - Sierra Leone is first to me. You believe AO has made great accomplishments in Belize. I am very happy for that as I was privilege to read a judgement on the matter of the Maya Villages of Santa Cruz v Attorney general of Belize. When was this? October 2007!!

I would have appreciated your insults if you had subjectively concentrated on my narrative. I spoke about what I experienced and saw. You defend on the grounds of partisanship. I do not trade my principles and ideals for anything to anyone. The same God who created us gave us individual gifts to survive. To same he gave leadership to lead their people. If such people abuse their offices and you come to this forum; not directly responding to my post, but through another’s – that is congosa. I have sunk so low but you have lost my respects for you. You are no different from opportunists. I believe you know the truth but so very afraid because you believe something is in the pipeline for you. So sad for the likes of AO would not give you anything that you cannot, through hard work, obtain. I entreat you to visit his home to determine whether he is the man you know. I respect people who care for the welfare of their people. Your giant is not capable of running a village let alone Africa. Belize is not like Sierra Leone.

Take this from me; Sierra Leone is first on my agenda and party politics less on my scale. I know my statement hurt a lot of selfish and people with greed. I do not give a hoot about them. The welfare of the people is more important to me. Do you know that your giant with all his laurels cannot help in the establishment of proper drinking water, average primary health care centre and a basic library or educational resource centre. Mr. Iscandri, you have shamed me – to believe that you guys only care for yourselves thinking life stops at your very backyard is indeed a grave calamity for our nation. I have sympathy for my president, His Excellency Dr. Ernest Koroma, as he faces pressure from the crude APC to deviate from his core beliefs in a one Sierra Leone. I pray his new team will not follow your principles and ideals. The truth about the incompetence of AO really offended you and you have tried to direct the actual rhythm to party politics. You cannot make all of us a hopeless bunch – there is a God that sees and knows when to strike. We shall survive!!

My first time to see you so angry but my principles dictates that I respond accordingly by presenting you with the facts. The fact is my statement is in no way party political. We cannot continue to divide the country by calling others bigots because your selfish and greedy mentor was not chosen to lead the AU. The AU and the rest of the world know him – our letters or pleas are just a tiny bunch in the opposition. He is not fit Mr. Iscandri – accept it. So sorry I have lost that which I had so much for you. Just a month ago, I directed a Gambian family to your office. Why? Because I believed you had the interest of people and not too much of the self. I do not entertain two-faced hypocrites. Why did you not email me as you did before the elections to talk to me like a brother? Was that another way of stopping me from telling the truth? You did not need to speak to me through a second person and therein insulting me – because of the truth. You have lost it!!

Please leave God out of this. He already has too much on his plate. I always get scared when someone comes out with the God angle to a simple debate. You know that I have a tremendous amount of respect for you Mr. Kabia, but with regards to AO conteh and the alleged letters you sent to the International organisations which basically defamed him, I think that you were wrong on that note. We may never agree on this point but we should henceforth agree to disagree on this discrete issue.

I had no intention of insulting you and if you feel insulted by that post I sincerely apologise from the bottom of my heart. I however would like you to know that when you take positions against people like Dr. AO Conteh, then I am sorry I will have no choice but to stand up and speak the truth as I see it. If my speaking the truth hurts you in any way, I would like you to know henceforth that any response that I give to your invectives against someone who I consider a good man are clearly not intended to be construed as an insult to you or your person.

You calleed me a two faced hypocrite. Although I have been called worse, this is however the first time I am being called two faced. I would have thought that someone like me who says his piece and moves on, would not be considered two faced, but we may have diferent definitions of what being two faced is.

I chose ot to e mail you because it was unnecessary since the reason for an e mail had become moot by your publications of matters defamatory against someone I hold in high esteem. If you though my straight forward response to you on the Abdulai Conteh issue was a way of stopping you from telling the truth, then you must be mistaken. As you are aware the truth is "SUBJECTIVE" YOU SPOKE YOUR AND i DID MINE NOW WHY DO YOU HAVE A TICK UP YOUR ASS BECAUSE I SPOKE MY TRUTH. Chill out Winston. You still my brother.

You seemed to relish the fact that your brother had gone to Belieze to bring disgrace on the person of the seating Chief Justice of the supereme court. I think that his ass should have been whooped so bad that he would never have had to dream about ever bringing that disrespect to AO conteh again in his life. Now thats the type of behaviour that I resent.

Now get that tick of your ass and be the same old Winston we all know. Stop the gaddam character assasination of an eminent siera leonean and we willbe cool. You got that clear bra. And also please dont be thin skinned about all of this. You dont like the heat then get the hell outta the kitchen..

Kekeray agba okini? You won my respects again!! I'll say no more on the issue. My prayer is for you to make your giant consider atoning by way of making the basic contributions to the society that helped him make a footing in this life. A very easy thing to do considering his annual salary.

Recalled you wanted to see those publications some time ago? I deliberately ignored your request. Reason being; he is your hero and you will not be objective in deciphering the information. I will not want to have a fight with you brother. Your father and mine struggled together to help create safer environments for our working citizens. Why should one aloow AO's issue to come between us. I know AO more than you do. My grandmother's house is less than a mile to AO's village and seeing the poverty there in relation to the standing of your giant is appalling.

I lift my hat once again to you and would desist from entering into any cyber altercation with you on an issue of the similar.

My SLPP support does not mean I will not give my president the full support he needs from me as a citizen. He is the president of Sierra Leone and not the APC. He is the leader of APC, no doubt - as President of my country he has my true support and respect and that I will always give. My fear is that an alignment with the likes of my neighbour makes me edgy! Have a wonderful day and I hope my Gambian and Guinean family got the best client/attorney relationship - have not spoken to them. Blessings my brother, God is great!

Now thats the Chez I know and again if I said some hurtful words or words that may be construed as hurtful please forgive me I was only standing by the side o a man I admire and respect as one of the leading legal luminaries from my home. He may not be perfect but we should support our own all of the time.

Like your support for the SLPP, my support for the APC as a party is unwavering. But do tell me what do you expect from AO Conteh with regards to Ro gberray? Was he supposed to build some condominiums ther or is he single handedly supposed to develop the town on his own? If he had done that like Berewah did in building that massive building in that small village after Serabu wouldnt he have been criticised as having spent govt monies to build his own village.

The point I am making here is that we should have facts when we make political allegations. I remember very well after the NPRC coup when my own father was accused of having a trunk full US $$$$$ by the NPRC and people like John Benjamin. Now I look back in retrospect and realise that it was all a lie and there was no money, none was ever turned over to the government and his personal vehicle was misappropriated by the NPRC and used as the personal vehicle of the girfriend of one of the NPRC boys. was it fair then? Nope but thats politics.

All of these accusations about AO conteh having attempted to cash a check from Gaddaffi is all propaganda Chez, trust me brother it is and unless we look beyond that we are going to be in an endless cycle of making baseless accusation against innocent people.

The clients you referred will be treated courteously and with the degree of professionalism that my office accords to all of its clients.

Stay Blessed brother and let the struggle continue for the emancipation of our people.

Thanks Bro! Will only touch on the Rogberray issue. As a child, my grandma bought land just when they started the bridge connecting Checkpoint and Rogberray; I saw what Rogberray was as I was a frequent DJ in the village. bro, with the little efforts I make - i try to include others to develop the homeland. What i would like AO to do is to support or encourage locals of Rogberray to help develop and advance the socio-economic activities of the village. At a time he was the only great hope they had. I would have made many like me if I was ever in his position. let me tell you a true story - on arrival in the UK, I saw that many of our brothers and sisters were engaged in minial jobs - most had schooled in Sierra leone for over 15 years. I confronted them about my concerns. UK was was open to people with innovative enterprise culture under Maggie (may she live long). I set up an organisation in honour of my father called the JBK Foundation Trust. Over time it became one of the biggest recipient of grants. It helped in the advancement in education of disadvantaged groups within and outside the UK. Other similar projects followed. I also helped others to progress with their ideas in helping their communities. I know of a Sierra Leonean who succeeded in getting more grants than I through my help. I was not afraid of competition - there was room for more to advance in their ideologies. Such should be that which I expect from AO - yes, he helped his close relatives - which is good. What about the rest of the homeland - no pipe-borne water supply, no basic primary health care centre, no good roads, etc. etc. That Great scarcies river should be booming with life if I was in their position. I have a video recording of the river from kambia to Rukupr - so beautiful. I have my dreams to making it the best waterway in the world (God willing). I spent a lot of time there and I know the pain i feel for God to bless the town with so many brilliant minds that forgot their origins. my anger is not only with him but to so many of them. he has a chance to change things and regain the honour and nobility God is trying continually to bestow upon him. he cannot run away from it. Kambia is my maternal land and I love the place - its beauty facinates me. I peddled from kambia to Conakry Dee (Lungi) using Skandia's small Bettle-type dinggy (boat) - I don't think he knows about this. A great city left to decay because of selfish minds. I also have a video of the whole district including the famous 18 mangoes - bro- the neglect is sickening. last week I commissioned a team to support a project called "Friends of 18 Mangoes" to look after those mango trees as they are a reminiscence of the glorious kambia. There are so many stories i have about my maternal region; the same is of my paternal side. God gave us leaders and leaders can have wealth through the creation of wealth for others in the same locality. bro, I am sick that i cannot do everything and be everywhere - the world is a simple place if we only think of the happiness of others. I go through hard times and those hard times are as a result of trying to make others happy. in the end, I find happiness and relaxation. No to all tin for talk. AO get beaucoup for do. god mek a great let him use that greatness to see greatness in others. it is not money that is the keep, though it is a catalyst to make things work. A little splash of it can bring great rewards to many who will in turn bring great rewards to many many. The morning don begin fine. Stay blessed!

We have to remember that Sierra Leone is still going through troubling times. The fact remain that the CIA and the American counter intelligent agencies still believes that the SLPP have the capability to stir turmoil in Sierra Leone and the region. The training of Militia in the South and East just last month, is the signs of trouble times to come .The SLPP has never and will never defend it self through democratic principles and ideals. If you want to promote peaceful political environment that warrants a state visit, from George Bush or any world leader, start acting like you really want lasting peace in Sierra Leone.

The British gave substantial contribution toward redevelopment but Tony Blair(Prime Minister) stop short of entering the city of Freetown. Until such a time, these enemies of progress can focus there energy on nation building instead of starting wars, we will continue to see such embarrassment and linger on the bottom of human index.

Therefore, doesn’t blame Zainab, blame those who mortgage Sierra Leone to terrorist Organization such as the Owners of Sierra Rutile AKA Executive Outcome?
They are the murderers of over one hundred and fifty thousand innocent poor Sierra Leone. All in the name of power and greed, supported by the failed SLPP government. Why would an Industry worth billions of dollar mortgaged to such an Organization for 30 long years in exchange for peanut change of 10 million dollars a year. Are Tejan Kabba and his operatives still on the payroll of Executive outcome? Or are we simply naive of this deadly past that continues to hunt us as a nation. This is food for thoughts as Emerson put it. GRAMPA PAN PIKIN KANDA.

President Koroma is committed in moving Sierra Leone forward. He has demonstrated power and strength in building stronger ties with the right people within his first 90 days in office. The hosting of George Soares in Freetown is a testimony that democracy and capitalism is going to be the name of the game to move us from hand out to self sufficiency. Therefore, stop raising issues you don’t have clues of or policies and directions of this government that has demonstrated more commitments in six months than the entire eleven years of SLPP rule...

Zainab Bangura amongst many ,besides being the Foreign Minister is the only one who can muster support on behalf of Sierra Leone to interest George Bush and the Americans to come to Freetown right now.. If George Bush is not coming it is more to it than just Zainab not up to the task. Look at the security issues SLPPcreated during the Elections in Daru and kailaihum. Look at what the SLPP Operative are doing in kono right now. Is that in the interest of national security and progress?

Give Zainab a fair chance and she will bring incredible Relationships and Investments beyond imagination. She is very charming, experience and thus poses the ability to turn Sierra Leone into a regional paradise.

This APC government at the end of its first 5 year term, will be voted the best government, since Ghana decided to lead the path of Democracy and improving the life of its people in recent memories.

Foday, I thought Mr Koroma was supposed to appoint seasoned and experienced individuals as ministers.Is nt that why he took so long to form a cabinet? why should we wait for Zainab to learn the job? Why not just give the job to her deputy, Vandi Minah who is more qualified than her.

It is interesting that you are one of the few people who knows that a militia is training in the south and east. Please give more information on this. Although nobody wants turmoil in Sierra Leone. President Koroma's blatant Northernization tendencies do not augur well peaceful coexistence.

By the way Sierra Leone's weak military position is due to the former APC Ekutay cabal womanizing instead building our national defence. Stop blaming SLPP, The elections are over and SLPP lost. APC has been in Govt for over 100 days and they have acheived nothing concrete so far. Electricity is still sporadic in Freetown.

Kamara, did I hear you say Koroma's Northernization tendencies do not augur well "peaceful coexistence"? Are you trying to confirm what chairman says by using your weak diplomatic choice of words? Guys, becareful, there is already an issue here that should not be politicized. If you want to ask the question as most of us did to know the answer, just do and stop twisting things.

Chairman, I am disturbed by the revelation you mention in your piece - "The training of Militia in the South and East just last month, is the signs of trouble times to come". Can you elaborate more on this before I can say anything further? This is a sensitive issue you just broght up. As a Sierra Leonean, irrespective of where I come from will not tolerate ANYONE to repeat the turmoil our people suffered the last decades just to regain power. Please chairman, give us more info.
