The ‘KITI KATA’ is closing in on the former government officials and ministers: the commission of inquiry on them is an excellent idea! None of them will escape the smell test. When the poverty stricken Sierra Leoneans were wailing and constantly perturbed by the state of affairs under the SLPP government, those unpatriotic devil incarnate official and ‘some’ ministers celebrated their ill-gotten wealth. Fine! Now it’s their turn to give an account of their stewardship, statesmanship, citizenship, the list goes on. But you know what? This forum will be spewed with illogical defense of the SLPP. Give me a break! I’m just making an upfront projection. Some of the useless slogans will be ‘witch hunt,’ ‘victimization,’ ‘APC Tactics,’ etc.

I have never seen someone so negative about positivity.For him as long as it concerns the APC it is wrong or bad. With all the the positive achievements the APC have made within this short time he still bashes the prezo and his govt. like someone who has being stung by a kind of black ant called 'KAGBAI'.Out of frustration and jealousy, he like many in his bandwagon decided to be so disrespectful to the father of the new Salone by referring to him as 'Agnes'.
He is one of those who contributed to the SLPP's humpty-dumpty-like great fall.Being a celebrated bootlicker he is one of those who made the SLPP believe that they were doing great and that the whole of Salone was with them.

Such people are not only dangerous to their parties but to Salone too.It is hightime patriots do some collective whipping of this guy's butt to sober him up.

Many people are turning eyes away as killing the resurrected democracy is going on.They do not see the dirty activities of party supporters nor hear the bitter cry of democracy "DONT KILL ME AGAIN". Some people justify the hooliganism of their party supporters by accepting falacious excuses for indecent hooliganick actions. In my opinion it is wrong and should be stopped, if we want to avoid another unwanted disaster.Political party leaders should take firm actions to eradicate hooliganism upholding the system.A decent political leader should be in control and educate supporters, it should not be under the table game so as to fool the public. Contesting candidates should have fair opportunities to campaign in places and their supporters should not be molested, dehumanized or bastardized by hooligans from other parties .If Sierra Leoneans are interested in sustaining the resurrected democracy and prevent another unwanted sad situation, this is the time to act wisely.Put out the fire before the heavy winds come in.People don,t have to be caged in classrooms to be educated about past unfortunate events and circumstances that led to our horrible disaster,therefore, adequate firm actions should be used by party leaders to reverse the disturbing situation. Save Democracy by stopping the hooligans.

Those of us who know Arthur Harvey are not surprised by his political prostitution. Besides, Arthur is of no use to himself let alone the Imperie and entire Bonthe District communities.

Arthur has been overseeing politically Sierra Rutile's operation but there is nothing to show. Look through the entire Rutile and point out one native son in Management Position. Not because they are not qualified but because Arthur sees anyone of his compatriots holding a responsible position as a threat to his authority.

I had the opportunity to ask Arthur in 2006 why there is no indigene holding any responsible position in the Mines even though you have some who are professionals in Administration, Engineering, Geology, Development, etc. He looked at me in the face and said "Den borbor den too bigman-den betteh yanda gis nor na we den go dae fityai". Yes, Arthur told me this looking straight into my eyes.

During the last elections, while Arthur was Campaigning for SLPP, he threatened a very prominent family that should SLPP win he would single handedly banish them from Imperie Chiefdom. He called all those who were supporting PMDC and APC has bastards. These are the same bastards that he is now sucking from. He vowed that Bonthe District would never support another party. Indeed!

I will look at Arthur in the face and call him shameless and unprincipled.

Rev . KANU, I believe the A.P.C. supporters explannation for their dirty activity in Kono is entirely unwarranted and unacceptable in any decent political society.These indecent hooligans called supporters are not supporters, but arrogant indecent rude hooligans . A.P.C. will soon be trashed out if so called supporters are not stopped or eradicated. Note that the first A.P.C. gained support because many people saw the unfairness and bad treatment S.L.P.P. DID TO THE OPPOSITION(A.P.C.). People worked hard and destroyed all the dirty rat lines established and gave clean opportunity for A.P.C. to excel. The same A.P.C. became a brutal beast through many so called supporters, democracy was finally slaughtered and trashed away, hooliganism and thuggery got upper hands and prevailed for a long time .What does these crazy guys want, divide Sierra Leone ,A.P.C. BLOC AND S.L.P.P.BLOC? A.P.C. SHOULD STOP PLAYING DIRTY GAMES,CRY FOR JUSTICE TODAY AND SLAUGHTER IT TOMORROW .This is not fair and it is dirty politicking.

Your extreme anger made you failed to address the problem thoroughly and fairly. Some of the points you put across are good but some are an indication of temperamental outburst.

We must learn to investigate the roots of problems, accept mitigating circumstances and make informed judgements. Violence anywhere is unacceptable but we must put honesty above hatred if we are to combat this menacing behaviour, Sierra Leone currently habours a huge number of illiterate adult and young people whose judgement against provocation or any other infringement is limited to their lack of reasoning. The only quick solution they tend to apply is violence it's sad in our soceity so those who can reason better than these people should act as ambassadors of peace rather than instigators.

Your comments shows you have the tendency to be controlled by frustration and anger.

Open letter to APC leadership on the spate of independent candidates who are APC
Written by Sidi Ibrahim Sheriff
Tuesday, 17 June 2008

Open letter to APC Leadership on the spate of Independent candidates who are APC:

Comrades and sympathizers:

The spate of independent candidates is a result of the party operatives refusing to accept that the APC should move away from the old tricks of not allowing self-determination. Self-determination is a potent and compelling phenomenon that is at the center of the world’s most celebrated political experiences: From Asia, the Middle East to Africa’s independence struggles.

From the American War of Independence to the fall of Communism, the list goes on and on. Indeed, like some of our compatriots may have said before, in a different context though, “There is a new dawn in Sierra Leone” and self-determination is central to that dawn! We should therefore begin to work on the populist modalities way ahead of 2012 as the council elections may serve as a rude awakening.

Not catastrophic, I hope. As a concerned and informed APC member, I can therefore safely say that there has been a lot of corruption in the process leading to the award of symbols and so many hitherto outspoken party reformists and radicals have suddenly chosen to be eerily quiet!!!!!!!!!!

The party needs to device a system. The party can, as it has a lot of thinkers! But some see it as their personal chance to reap from the poor party activists who are desperate to share in the sudden popularity of the party; Needless to say that this euphoria may not last long. The silence is a self serving posture that does not serve the party and people of Sierra Leone well. Should we be reminded of the common cliché that ‘those who fail to learn from the experiences and mistakes of History are bound to repeat them?’

The same over-confidence and arrogance of party operatives blinded the SLPP (in 1967 and 2008) and the APC (in the 80s to early 1992) to their imminent demise. What went wrong? Sincere and genuine party operatives for fear of being alienated failed to speak up against the wrong directions and failed policies within their parties and governments. I can now see some wanting to jump up and say “Common, this is way too early” Well I only have this Temne and possibly other language translation as a response-“The best or sweetest sleep is during dosing off.” Some of us will never fall into the category of “blind party loyalists” because our interest in Sierra Leone seats ahead of party loyalty. If, God forbid, the APC falls this time, it may be difficult to find any bulwarks as so many bulwarks have suddenly been frustrated beyond measure.

The friends we seem to have when we are in power cannot be counted towards our strength! We need to go back to the drawing board and begin to tally the list of all the loyal operatives before the APC came to power. That, my comrades, is the genuine and reliable measure of our power and strength when we reach a crisis level in the future and these are the people we can never afford to lose.

WE SHOULD BE AWARE OF FAIR WEATHER FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If the secretariat is sincere about transparent primaries they should begin to organize the people and have them register at constituency levels using token registration fees that should be combined by serious activism.

Again, no manipulations as that would undermine the true strength of the party and subsequently shoot us in the foot! Those who register should be true party enthusiasts and be sensitized to the importance of serving as voters during future primaries. The big wigs in the party need to give up the idea of determining who gets a party symbol.

This power should go to the people. Some popular candidates do not have access to big wigs. Their big wigs are embedded with the people. At the community level, the people can easily determine who has worked more for their communities and the party.

This is not for some hurriedly put together panel in the heat of a looming election fever and whose primary focus is to surreptitiously solicit symbols payments and bribes from the highest bidders. The party should device a code of conduct for party officials as corruption at the party level can easily percolate to the central government.

I hope the president sees through these frustrations from the grass roots before it is too late. The party secretariat should embrace transparency and democratic values now. So many are already aggrieved! Just some thoughts. Long live the APCLong live our Sierra Leone Multi-party PoliticsLong live Sierra Leone!

I was reading Chez Winakabs Europe's concerns over the re-emergence of a One-party State in SL … under the heading For Sengbe:SLPP Big Von Grabs APC Top Job...Why??? . I really enjoyed reading the lovely piece but frankly, I found myself in diagonal disagreement with its contents.

The old, regional block representational dynamics in SL politics has changed considerably since Charles Margai boldly and bravely took on the SLPP, regardless of the established traditional roots. The political landscape has since taken a new outlook that should be met with an equally brand new approach. Otherwise, naivety tends to prevail and party stalwarts will be seen to be swinging against the tides of modern political thinking.

On the contrary though, some clever brains in the SLPP Camp are really preoccupied with putting jigsaw puzzles into proper perspective and honestly, I can't resist the thrill! The SLPP think tanks must be in exhilarating spirits! Some strategist are out there watching the unfolding political events of the day … studying the myriad of government policies ….. analyzing the reactions of the populace ……. identifying areas of weaknesses etc. But perhaps, quite refreshing from my opinion, is the NEW NATURAL APPROACH that appears to be emanating from the Greenies. I mean you come to love SL as a country that is never short of brains.

You see folks! EBK's government is on a positively progressive path that, to a true born of the soil, should be considered undeniably commendable. Should an opposition party persistently embark on an aggressive campaign of smear, then the party risks being misconstrued as an enemy of progress! That was the first approach adopted by disheartened SLPP folks in the post-election period. The situation was understandable ….. sore losers indeed! But what serious political analysts would fail to understand is …… to still remain sore losers after the horse has already bolted! There is need for a change in strategy ….. and behooooold …. it's just a natural one! And now we're beginning to see it being exhibited … at least gradually.

The opposition should be there to contribute positively towards the country's developmental agenda and share in the political limelight. The SLPP doesn't necessarily have to do so strictly through the Sylvia Blyden style – make yourself a victim of systematic political witch hunt and cryyyy ….weeeeep, then turn to the west for intervention. The west is so preoccupied with the escalating price of petrol, they hardly have time for Morgan Tsvangarai in Zimbabwe let alone SL. In fact, African politics is not known to be 'natural' at birth, so what's new about the rough and tumble of our political manifestations!

Now, we're seeing new initiatives. The SLPP is out to share in the prospective progress of EBK's regime and that's the only natural route I see to a spirited revival of the party. It's a two a way street! Even where the APC attempt to deny it, it's on the wall that the government is presently benefiting considerably from unfinished projects that the old regime engineered in earnest, and, quite unfairly, appears to be taking all the credit on it. So why would the Greenies have to be sobbing and wailing about it from a distance! They should smartly team up with EBK, praise the government's efforts where praise is due, and quickly distance themselves in readiness for bulleting salvos whenever they smell blunders or misappropriation. That is what healthy politics is all about!

Besides, I always feel comfortable when I look at things from a natural standpoint. The present tides are in favour of the new government. Naturally, there's time for every purpose. It would be wise to simply blend with the tides and swing along. Who knows! The winds of change might even see a northerner heading the SLPP! So what's wrong with that? If Charles Margai can go all the way and cause partition in the south, east and southeast which eventually played to the advantage of the APC, what's wrong with the SLPP moving a gear forward to set a new precedence? That's what politics is all about …. smart and thoughtful maneuverings that have the potential of effecting land breaking changes in the political landscape. "If nar lie, ask Obama!"

Mensa, I am in agreement with your analysis! What troubled me most
was the re-launch of the SLPP Radio by our president, leader of the
APC party - our archrivals. You see, it was a good move but it
demeaned our sense of purpose and duty to the party. I truly respect
and hold dear our president but to start looking after our party affairs,
is unheard of throughout the world entire. He, the president, did a
very thorough job by correcting the incompetent move by his minister
- that was the best move by hi in our young democracy. The
audacious nature of him taking over our affairs troubled me a lot -
having to start asking questions about our strength and dedication of
our leadership. The rhetoric - he closed it and should open it - is indigestible. Such should only happen when it is an event of national
concern or nature. You will recall that during the president's
inauguration, a national event, our executive, defied our cries and
refused to attend the inauguration. That was a blow to a united
country. He is showing something greater in him that some in our
party tend to treat with reckless abandon - applied psychology. His
minister's lack of proactive thinking was quick to shut down, without
consideration of the aftermath, the radio station of the opposition.
Cool and calculated, EBK delegated the responsibility of finding out the
truth of the matter to his VP. VP reported and EBK saw it was wrong
and with ease, volunteered to re-launch the station - ingenious he is.

SLPP need to step up and focus on supporting practical solution to our
problems we face - the alternatives. Without coherent practical
policies, we will again be in the wilderness. APC is ready to fry us with
our very own oil - not by violence as the technological age will give
them away quickly but by stealth - they will buy the hungry true-blue
members of the SLPP that were abused and disused by Kabbah and
Berewa. These professionals neglected by the previous SLPP are now
playing the games for the APC. I do not blame them - they suffered
and faced the worst humiliation under their own party leadership. EBK
is reaching out to them and lending a hand. I hear some call him
Agnes - Agnes is going to show us that he is an 'angel' as the name
Agnes.

Chez, I really admire your reasoning. You appear to be well committed to the party cause. Such rich analysis could only come from folks who have the party at heart.

I am more concerned with unravelling the political dynamics at play now ..... move by move. There's this declarative onslaught by the APC to exert their authority, their mandate, their legitimacy to the thrown and ....well...you can call it their demonstration to the fact that they know the worth and weight of power more than the SLPP. So, they can do with provocative events ... mild thrusts ....feigned rounds of boxing.... here and there .... "Opinkol" of some sorts. Hey! Politics doesn't necessarily have to be a boring thing, does it! This is why I just want to comment on the Kono incident.

But perhaps, the most potent aspect of these semi-violent events are the SIGNALS they send. From an American jaggon, they send a 'Cowboy' message. In SL, they send 'You shake ar warp' message. But that's as far as it goes! The most unfortunate aspect of it is the way the SLPP react to it. Instead of making it a petty thing that could just blow over, they make Rambos out of the youths that pertake in these incidents.

Mostly, as kids, when we go hunting for fresh fruits in bush, we quickly dispell any of our folks that display yellow guts! SLPP folks were born in SL and they grew up in SL. We don't want violence, but you also don't cry too much over minor incidents. It symbolizees a baby attitude.... a punctured image ... a people that don't have the qualities of strong leadership.

They only need to get their acts together, get a team of highly respectable SLPP senior citizens, and let them do the running. EBK always have to keep that link with these senior citizens, and they will be in position to launch scathing attacks against such behaviours in the right platforms.

SLPP has taken donkey years in and out of power so they should be in position to exercise some attributes of political maturity. Complain a little and act a lot with wisdom. African politics is no baby thing! In parliament, you can oppose as much as you like, but from the outside, show that things are never beyond your ability to contain.

At this juncture, I would like to feature a personality that epitomizes the ingrain characteristic of the APC's masterful political attributes.... Serry Kamal! This guy has been hanging in there for donkey years ...in the opposition .... never wilting from the persistent onslaughts .... repelling the attacks and stage-managing the broken pieces of the parties image. Cool, confident and calculative from the outside. Stubborn and resilient from the inside.

And with such a guy calling the shots in the present government ...... having seen the rough and tumble of it all from the opposition bench, SLPP folks would need to scream through wireless microphones to be able to make an impression on the international community.

I am very troubled by the aggressive nakedness in the gruesome intimidatory tactics being employed by the APC-led GoSL, through their so-called apc Task force, or more appropriately, their THUG FORCE - operating in a similar manner as the erstwhile Ton-ton Macoutes of the Haitian dictators, Papa Doc, and his son, Baby Doc.

I have read with utmost disgust and sadness about the uncivilized activities of this force in Kono as recently as two days ago. We have all read the activities of these maggots during the aftermath of the general elections last year. They continue to operate in this uncivilized way with impunity. But I really do not wonder why? Simply because some of us had predicted that this sort of behavior will come to pass again, especially after President Koroma announced that he would govern in the same mode as his mentors; President Stevens, and President Momoh. And if you are as old as I am, or a generation below mine, you'd know exactly what that means.

What does this APC-led GoSL hope to gain through these naked acts of AGGRESSION, INTIMIDATION, THUGGERY, and VIOLENCE?

If the hope is to intimidate folks into casting their ballots for them during the forthcoming local government elections through this uncivilized process, then I submit to one and all that they are dangerously mistaken. Afterall, the people successfully revolted against their 24-year misrule; their misrule through their surrogates in the AFRC and the RUF, for a combined duration of eleven years. What makes these thugs (apc task force members) believe that they will succeed in violently coercing our folks to vote for them in July 2008, and beyond (in 2012) to continue their stale governance we are presently witnessing now?

Dog bett craseman, oonu nor torke. Nar way craseman bett dog, oonu go notice.

What if the SLPP also forms such a task force, with the collaboration of Judas and his followers, using the grand reunification approach? Afterall, based on my understanding, the PMDC folks were equally affected by the violent destabilizing activities of the "tonton-ernest-sumanas" ["TERSUMS" for short] in Kono, Port Loko, and elsewhere, recently. Will this augur very well with the peace we achieved in the STABLE DEMOCRATIC environment created in the nation by the SLPP-led GoSL for the past twelve years? I should think not.

For all this time, the SLPP has taken the more tolerant approach to these provocations, but in my mind's eye a time is gonna come, very soon, I might add, when the Tersums will be repelled with a force more overwhelming than theirs. That opposing force must not be blamed for the after-effects of that repulsion. You folks (latent sponsors of this new regime) would have to blame it on Newton's Third law of Motion, which is a natural law.

I claim NOT to be a spokesperson for my party, the SLPP, but we have allowed ourselves to be pushed around so much, and for so long by partisans in this new Themnecratic/ Konocratic dispensation that it would be foolish to indicate otherwise than "we ain't gonna take it no more". And if the corner we would have been pushed into bears no other exit, we will push back until the incident force is completely removed. Please do not take this as a threat from me or my party, but as a warning of tangible future events that may unfold if the incident force is not removed as soon as possible.

It would be in the interest of the commanders of these thugs in the apc task force to rein in their dogs before the "craziness" in the opposition bites back. And I believe that they are kind of low on tertanus shots oberyanda, so a rabid infection might lead to sudden death.

THEMNECRACY plus KONOCRACY do NOT equate to DEMOCRACY, only to DEMOCRAZINESS.

The opposition would like to take this opportunity to appeal to the APC party, and the APC-led GoSL to see reason, and order their task force members in the general public, and police force, SLP, to DESIST from violently antagonizing our peoples on a continuous basis, beacuse the will of our peoples is stronger than any weapons they (task force thugs) may have in their arsenal, and/or in their possession.

I hope there are folks within the ranks of the apc with enough foresight to prevent the fire next time.

Inshallah!!!

Will there be another PLUS?

It was Themnecracy now Konocracy is being added next will be Mendecracy and so on. We're getting there

You people will not receive sympathy from well meaning Sierra Leoneans because just as Dr. Kamara put it "ANYTHING MENDE IS GOOD BUT ANYTHING TEMNE IS BAD".

When violence erupted in Kailahun during the past elections when people from that region openly initiated an RUF style violent attacks on the then opposition APC, people like you rejoiced or kept your power of writing against violence now you are angry when your perceived party is on the spotlight. What a hypocrite.

THE SHADOW

Unfortunately there can be no doubt that man is, on the whole, less
good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a
shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life,
the blacker and denser it is. If an inferiority is conscious, one always
has a chance to correct it. Furthermore, it is constantly in contact with
other interests, so that it is continually subjected to modifications. But
if it is repressed and isolated from consciousness, it never gets
corrected.
"Psychology and Religion" (1938). In CW 11: Psychology and Religion:
West and East. P.131

It is a frightening thought that man also has a shadow side to him,
consisting not just of little weaknesses- and foibles, but of a positively
demonic dynamism. The individual seldom knows anything of this; to
him, as an individual, it is incredible that he should ever in any
circumstances go beyond himself. But let these harmless creatures
form a mass, and there emerges a raging monster; and each individual
is only one tiny cell in the monster's body, so that for better or worse
he must accompany it on its bloody rampages and even assist it to the
utmost. Having a dark suspicion of these grim possibilities, man turns
a blind eye to the shadow-side of human nature. Blindly he strives
against the salutary dogma of original sin, which is yet so prodigiously
true. Yes, he even hesitates to admit the conflict of which he is so
painfully aware.
"On the Psychology of the Unconscious" (1912). In CW 7: Two Essays
on Analytical Psychology. P.35

We know that the wildest and most moving dramas are played not in
the theatre but in the hearts of ordinary men and women who pass by
without exciting attention, and who betray to the world nothing of the
conflicts that rage within them except possibly by a nervous
breakdown. What is so difficult for the layman to grasp is the fact that
in most cases the patients themselves have no suspicion whatever of
the internecine war raging in their unconscious. If we remember that
there are many people who understand nothing at all about
themselves, we shall be less surprised at the realization that there are
also people who are utterly unaware of their actual conflicts.
"New Paths in Psychology" (1912). In CW 7: Two Essays on Analytical
Psychology. P.425

If you imagine someone who is brave enough to withdraw all his
projections, then you get an individual who is conscious of a pretty
thick shadow. Such a man has saddled himself with new problems and
conflicts. He has become a serious problem to himself, as he is now
unable to say that they do this or that, they are wrong, and they must
be fought against. He lives in the "House of the Gathering." Such a
man knows that whatever is wrong in the world is in himself, and if he
only learns to deal with his own shadow he has done something real
for the world. He has succeeded in shouldering at least an infinitesimal
part of the gigantic, unsolved social problems of our day.
"Psychology and Religion" (1938). In CW 11: Psychology and Religion:
West and East. P.140

There is a deep gulf between what a man is and what he represents,
between what he is as an individual and what he is as a collective being.
His function is developed at the expense of the individuality. Should he
excel, he is merely identical with his collective function; but should he
not, then, though he may be highly esteemed as a function in society,
his individuality is wholly on the level of his inferior, undeveloped
functions, and he is simply a barbarian, while in the former case he has
happily deceived himself as to his actual barbarism.
Psychological Types (1921). CW 6: P.III

Taking it in its deepest sense, the shadow is the invisible saurian tail
that man still drags behind him. Carefully amputated, it becomes the
healing serpent of the mysteries. Only monkeys parade with it.
The Integration of the Personality. (1939).

How else could it have occurred to man to divide the cosmos, on the
analogy of day and night, summer and winter, into a bright day-world
and a dark night-world peopled with fabulous monsters, unless he had
the prototype of such a division in himself, in the polarity between the
conscious and the invisible and unknowable unconscious? Primitive
man's perception of objects is conditioned only partly by the objective
behaviour of the things themselves, whereas a much greater part is
often played by intrapsychic facts which are not related to the external
objects except by way of projection. This is due to the simple fact that
the primitive has not yet experienced that ascetic discipline of mind
known to us as the critique of knowledge. To him the world is a more
or less fluid phenomenon within the stream of his own fantasy, where
subject and object are undifferentiated and in a state of mutual
interpenetration.
"Psychological Aspects of the Mother Archetype" (1939) In CW 9, Part 1:
The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious. P. 187

We carry our past with us, to wit, the primitive and inferior man with
his desires and emotions, and it is only with an enormous effort that
we can detach ourselves from this burden. If it comes to a neurosis, we
invariably have to deal with a considerably intensified shadow. And if
such a person wants to be cured it is necessary to find a way in which
his conscious personality and his shadow can live together.
"Answer to Job" (1952). In CW 11: Psychology and Religion: West and
East. P.12

The world is as it ever has been, but our consciousness undergoes
peculiar changes. First, in remote times (which can still be observed
among primitives living today), the main body of psychic life was
apparently in human and in nonhuman Objects: it was projected, as we
should say now. Consciousness can hardly exist in a state of complete
projection. At most it would be a heap of emotions. Through the
withdrawal of projections, conscious knowledge slowly developed.
Science, curiously enough, began with the discovery of astronomical
laws, and hence with the withdrawal, so to speak, of the most distant
projections. This was the first stage in the despiritualization of the
world. One step followed another: already in antiquity the gods were
withdrawn from mountains and rivers, from trees and animals. Modern
science has subtilized its projections to an almost unrecognizable
degree, but our ordinary life still swarms with them. You can find them
spread out in the newspapers, in books, rumours, and ordinary social
gossip. All gaps in our actual knowledge are still filled out with
projections. We are still so sure we know what other people think or
what their true character is.
"Psychology and Religion" (1938) In CW II: Psychology and Religion:
West and East. P. 140

When we must deal with problems, we instinctively resist trying the
way that leads through obscurity and darkness. We wish to hear only of
unequivocal results, and completely forget that these results can only
be brought about when we have ventured into and emerged again from
the darkness. But to penetrate the darkness we must summon all the
powers of enlightenment that consciousness can offer.
"The Stages of Life" (1930). In CW 8: The Structure and Dynamics of the
Psyche. P.752

Everything that man should, and yet cannot, be or do- be it in a
positive or negative sense - lives on as a mythological figure and
anticipation alongside his consciousness, either as a religious
projection or-what is still more dangerous-as unconscious contents
which then project themselves spontaneously into incongruous objects,
e.g., hygienic and other "salvationist" doctrines or practices. All these
are so many rationalized substitutes for mythology, and their
unnaturalness does more harm than good.
"The Psychology of the Child Archetype" (1940). In CW 9, Part I: The
Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious. P.287

The hero's main feat is to overcome the monster of darkness: it is the
long-hoped-for and expected triumph of consciousness over the
unconscious. The coming of consciousness was probably the most
tremendous experience of primeval times, for with it a world came into
being whose existence no one had suspected before. "And God said,
'Let there be light"' is the projection of that immemorial experience of
the separation of consciousness from the unconscious.
"The Psychology of the Child Archetype" (1940). In CW 9, Part I: The
Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious. P.284

The symbol is a living body, corpus et anima; hence the "child" is such
an apt formula for the symbol. The uniqueness of the psyche can never
enter wholly into reality, it can only be realized approximately, though
it still remains the absolute basis of all consciousness. The deeper
"layers" of the psyche lose their individual uniqueness as they retreat
farther and farther into darkness. "Lower down," that is to say as they
approach the autonomous functional systems, they become
increasingly collective until they are universalized and extinguished in
the body's materiality, i.e., in chemical substances. The body's carbon
is simply carbon. Hence "at bottom" the psyche is simply "world." In
this sense I hold Kerenyi to be absolutely right when he says that in
the symbol the world itself is speaking. The more archaic and "deeper,"
that is the more physiological, the symbol is, the more collective and
universal, the more "material" it is. The more abstract, differentiated,
and sp eci 'fie it is, and the more its nature approximates to conscious
uniqueness and individuality, the more it sloughs off its universal
character. Having finally attained full consciousness, it runs the risk of
becoming a mere allegory which nowhere oversteps the bounds of
conscious comprehension, and is then exposed to all sorts of attempts
at rationalistic and therefore inadequate explanation.
"The Psychology of the Child Archetype" (1940). In CW 9, Part I: The
Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious. P.291

The masculinity of the woman and the femininity of the man are
inferior, and it is regrettable that the full value of their personalities
should be contaminated by something that is less valuable. On the
other hand, the shadow belongs to the wholeness of the personality:
the strong man must somewhere be weak, somewhere the clever man
must be stupid, otherwise he is too good to be true and falls back on
pose and bluff. Is it not an old truth that woman loves the weaknesses
of the strong man more than his strength, and the stupidity of the
clever man more than his cleverness ?
Die Anima als Schicksalsproblem des Mannes (1963) Foreward by C.G.
Jung. In CW 18 261

To remain a child too long is childish, but it is just as childish to move
away and then assume that childhood no longer exists because we do
not see it. But if we return to the "children's land" we succumb to the
fear of becoming childish, because we do not understand that
everything of psychic origin has a double face. One face looks forward,
the other back. It is ambivalent and therefore symbolic, like all living
reality.
Psychology and Alchemy (1944). CW 12. P.74

No, the demons are not banished; that is a difficult task that still lies
ahead. Now that the angel of history has abandoned the Germans,* the
demons will seek a new victim. And that won't be difficult. Every man
who loses his shadow, every nation that falls into self-righteousness,
is their prey.... We should not forget that exactly the same fatal
tendency to collectivization is present in the victorious nations as in
the Germans, that they can just as suddenly become a victim of the
demonic powers.
"The Postwar Psychic Problems of the Germans" (1945)
*Written I945.

Just as we tend to assume that the world is as we see it, we naively
suppose that people are as we imagine them to be. In this latter case,
unfortunately, there is no scientific test that would prove the
discrepancy between perception and reality. Although the possibility of
gross deception is infinitely greater here than in our perception of the
physical world, we still go on naively projecting our own psychology
into our fellow human beings. In this way everyone creates for himself
a series of more or less imaginary relationships based essentially on
projection.
"General Aspects of Dream Psychology" (1916). In CW 8: The Structure
and Dynamics of the Psyche. P.507

The change of character brought about by the uprush of collective
forces is amazing. A gentle and reasonable being can be transformed
into a maniac or a savage beast. One is always inclined to lay the
blame on external circumstances, but nothing could explode in us if it
had not been there. As a matter of fact, we are constantly living on the
edge of a volcano, and there is, so far as we know, no way of
protecting ourselves from a possible outburst that will destroy
everybody within reach. It is certainly a good thing to preach reason
and common sense, but what if you have a lunatic asylum for an
audience or a crowd in a collective frenzy? There is not much
difference between them because the madman and the mob are both
moved by impersonal, overwhelming forces.
"Psychology and Religion" (1938). In CW 11: Psychology and Religion:
West and East. P.25

It is the face of our own shadow that glowers at us across the Iron
Curtain.
Man and His Symbols. In CW 18: P.85

Whenever contents of the collective unconscious become activated,
they have a disturbing effect on the conscious mind, and contusion
ensues. If the activation is due to the collapse of the individual's hopes
and expectations, there is a danger that the collective unconscious
may take the place of reality. This state would be pathological. If, on
the other hand, the activation is the result of psychological processes
in the unconscious of the people, the individual may feel threatened or
at any rate disoriented, but the resultant state is not pathological, at
least so far as the individual is concerned. Nevertheless, the mental
state of the people as a whole might well be compared to a psychosis.
"The Psychological Foundation for the Belief in Spirits (1920). In CW 8:
The Structure and Dynamics of the Psyche. P.595

The individual ego could be conceived as the commander of a small
army in the struggle with his environments war not infrequently on two
fronts, before him the struggle for existence, in the rear the struggle
against his own rebellious instinctual nature. Even to those of us who
are not pessimists our existence feels more like a struggle than
anything else. The state of peace is a desideratum, and when a man
has found peace with himself and the world it is indeed a noteworthy
event.
"Analytical Psychology and Weltanschauung" (1928) In CW 8: The
Structure and Dynamics of the Psyche. P.693
If a man is endowed with an ethical sense and is convinced of the
sanctity of ethical values, he is on the surest road to a conflict of duty.
And although this looks desperately like a moral catastrophe, it alone
makes possible a higher differentiation of ethics and a broadening of
consciousness. A conflict of duty forces us to examine our conscience
and thereby to discover the shadow.
Depth Psychology and a New Ethic. (1949). In CW 18. P.17

The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-
personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without
considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves
recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real.
This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
Aion (1951). CW 9, Part II: P.14

To confront a person with his shadow is to show him his own light.
Once one has experienced a few times what it is like to stand judgingly
between the opposites, one begins to understand what is meant by the
self. Anyone who perceives his shadow and his light simultaneously
sees himself from two sides and thus gets in the middle.
"Good and Evil in Analytical Psychology" (1959). In CW 10. Civilization
in Transition. P.872

Filling the conscious mind with ideal conceptions is a characteristic of
Western theosophy, but not the confrontation with the shadow and the
world of darkness. One does not become enlightened by imagining
figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
"The Philosophical Tree" (1945). In CW 13: Alchemical Studies. P.335

A man who is unconscious of himself acts in a blind, instinctive way
and is in addition fooled by all the illusions that arise when he sees
everything that he is not conscious of in himself coming to meet him
from outside as projections upon his neighbour.
"The Philosophical Tree" (1945). In CW 13: Alchemical Studies. P.335

Projections change the world into the replica of one's own unknown
face.
Aion (1955). CW 14: P.17

The "other" may be just as one-sided in one way as the ego is in
another. And yet the conflict between them may give rise to truth and
meaning-but only if the ego is willing to grant the other its rightful
personality.
"Concerning Rebirth" (1940) In CW 9, Part I: The Archetypes of the
Collective Unconscious. P.237

Good does not become better by being exaggerated, but worse, and a
small evil becomes a big one through being disregarded and repressed.
The shadow is very much a part of human nature, and it is only at night
that no shadows exist.
"A Psychological Approach to the Dogma of the Trinity" (1942) In CW
11: Psychology and Religion: West and East. P.286

We know that the wildest and most moving dramas are played not in
the theatre but in the hearts of ordinary men and women who pass by
without exciting attention, and who betray to the world nothing of the

"New Paths in Psychology" (1912). In CW 7: Two Essays on Analytical

In reality, the acceptance of the shadow-side of human nature verges
on the impossible. Consider for a moment what it means to grant the
right of existence to what is unreasonable, senseless, and evil! Yet it is
just this that the modern man insists upon. He wants to live with every
side of himself-to know what he is. That is why he casts history aside.
He wants to break with tradition so that he can experiment with his life
and determine what value and meaning things have in themselves,
apart from traditional resuppositions.

Hi Eeveryone, i need to share this with you all. Last Friday my younger sister went to the immigration to get a passport. She called me after she left the office saying that tha cost of the passport will come up to Le175,000. I then contacted our Embassy in Washington to know the exact cost of a passport. I was told it will cost Le102,000 including the application form. I then requested for the telephone number at the Freetown Immigration department which they gave without any delay (232-22-224761). I then called the office asking for the public relation officer or the Principal Immigration Officer, guess who came on the line, it was the man himself, that is, the Principal Immigration Officer. I then asked him the cost of an ordinary passport which he said is Le 100,000 and the form is Le2,000. He also said if you need an emergency one it will be Le200,000. I then told him that somebody has taken Le75,000 from my sister and they are asking her to come up with another Le100,000 on the date of the interview. He requested that i should tell my sister to see him on Monday, that is today which she did. The police office was almost fired hadn't been for my sister who intervened and pleaded for him which i am not happy for. The guy should have been fired anyway. The bottomline is the Principal Immigration Officer acted immediately he got the information from him. My brothers and sisters lets help the government to eradicate this corruption menance. If we all behave in like manner, i think it will be minimize. That is why i saluted the lady that report those customs guys that wanted the dupe the state's legitimate revenue for their personal interest.

Howard University has an old-school way of banishing undesirables.
By Rion A. Scott
Feb. 1 - 7, 2002 (Vol. 22, #5)

Howard University has an old-school way of banishing undesirables.


Philosophy Professor D. Chernor Jalloh first antagonized his superiors at Howard University in 1999, when he gave failing grades to several students in his Principles of Reasoning class. After tussling with administrators and parents of the failing students, Jalloh says, the university changed the grades without his consent. Howard spokesperson Donna Brock declined to comment on the allegation.

Then, in 2000, Jalloh drew sexual-harassment charges based on complaints filed by students in the same class. Jalloh, a 17-year tenured veteran of the Howard faculty, refused to respond to the charges. In August 2000, Howard suspended Jalloh with pay from his job and later that year informed him that he would be fired.

But keeping Jalloh out of the classroom wasn't good enough for the university. It wanted him off campus property altogether. To this end, it posted a flier around campus:

al3rt BULLETIN Dr. Chernor Jalloh, Associate Professor in the University's Department of Philosophy College of Arts and Science, is barred from all Howard University owned properties and facilities. He is not permitted entry at any Howard University sponsored activities or events. The only circumstance under which he may enter Howard University owned or operated properties or facilities, is when he is accompanied by a member of the Howard University Campus Police.

The fliers offered no reason for Jalloh's banishment. Nor did they issue any instructions to students and faculty on how to handle a Jalloh sighting.

Howard officials prefer not to comment on their approach to keeping undesirables off campus. Former Philosophy Department Chair Segun Gbadegesin is currently on sabbatical, and calls to Dean of the School of Arts and Science James Donaldson were referred to Brock.

"That matter is pending litigation. There is no comment," says Brock, citing a defamation suit filed by Jalloh in October 2001.

In court documents, Howard claims the bulletin is protected by the school's "qualified privilege."

When the al3rt was first displayed on campus is a matter of dispute. In court documents, Jalloh says the al3rt was published in December 2000. Howard responded that the al3rt was not put up at that time, but the school offered no alternative date for the first posting.

The al3rts were posted again at the beginning of the fall 2001 semester, and some still linger on campus, including one beneath the glass at the front desk of the university's Moorland-Spingarn Research Center.

Richard Wright, chair of the Faculty Senate, an independent body of professors that serves as a go-between for the faculty and the administration, says Howard failed to make its case against the professor. "Why should you be given an al3rt without understanding as to why the al3rt is put out?" Wright says. "The next question is: What are we supposed to do?"

In a Jan. 28 statement, the university's Faculty Grievance Commission wrote, "[I]t is distasteful, disgraceful, and utter slander" that Jalloh "would be posted like a common criminal 'dead or alive' on the campus. It is vaguely reminiscent of the types of pictures posted during times of slavery, when a runaway slave...was being sough [sic] for lynching."

Jalloh's version of the story goes like this: In the fall 1999 semester, six students in his Principles of Reasoning class didn't measure up to his standards, so he assigned them failing grades. A few months later, the professor discovered that at least one parent had been upset by his child's failing grade. Jalloh was called into a meeting with Gbadegesin and Donaldson. Jalloh refused to budge on the F.

Jalloh says the meeting made him suspicious, so he checked with the registrar's office, where he discovered that several failing grades that he'd given had been changed to passing ones without his knowledge. Jalloh demanded that the administrators change the grades back, but they refused.

In March 2000, the university informed Jalloh that he was being investigated for sexual harassment, on the basis of complaints filed by students in the same Principles of Reasoning class. Sharon Banks, an attorney employed by Howard University's Office of the General Counsel, asked Jalloh to respond to the charges. He refused, arguing that the proper jurisdiction for such cases is the Faculty Grievance Commission--the university's internal mechanism for resolving conflicts between the faculty and the administration.

The university refuses to comment on the sexual-harassment charges.

Jalloh insists that the sexual-harassment charge stems from a university attempt to punish him for the alleged grade-changing issue.

And in court documents, the professor argues that the "gender discrimination and sexual harassment [charge is] based on alleged generalized philosophico-social statements [made in class and] clearly covered, because of their generalized determination, by the doctrine of academic freedom."

At the root of the harassment charge may be Jalloh's admittedly unorthodox teaching style. Jason Maddox, a philosophy senior, recalls that discussions in his fall 1999 Philosophy of Law class routinely began with law but often ventured into tangents. Maddox cites an exam that featured a question about a man's dog biting off another man's penis as an example. Jalloh says one offended student refused to take the test without alteration to the text. The professor says he changed the question, with reservations, and allowed the student to take the exam.

"It was the sickest piece of reading material I've ever read," Maddox says. "There wasn't a sentence that went by that didn't refer to weird sexual mutilation." Maddox says the wild scenario did challenge him to cut through its inherent craziness to extract the law.

Jalloh is confident that he will win his defamation suit against the university and that he will teach at Howard again. The Faculty Grievance Commission appears to agree, noting that "violations of academic freedoms and due process has [sic] occurred against Dr. Jalloh."

"All this shit happened because I discovered the grade change," he says. "The specific goal of the university is to cover up a grade change. What I do know is that I caught them red-handed." CP

Watermelon Politics Galore…SLPP Big Von Grabs APC Top Job
Written by The Exclusive News Paper
Wednesday, 11 June 2008
Reports reaching The Exclusive state that a big von in the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP), Mr. Arthur Harvey has been nominated for a big job by the All Peoples Congress (AP) Government.Mr. Harvey, who was Member of Parliament representing the SLPP in the last Parliament, is reported to have been nominated by the APC Government as one of two Directors in the Sierra Rutile mining company. The Government has powers to appoint two members of the Board of Directors of the company under the Sierra Rutile Act, 2001. The other person who is said to have been nominated is an old stalwart of the ruling party who hails from Rotifunk in the Moyamba District, Mr. Mohamed Oldman Mansaray who has been living abroad until recently.

The fact that both nominees are indigenes of the two districts were the company is mining, Bonthe and Moyamba, is seen to be a better arrangement to that of the former SLPP Government whose two nominees were from the Bo District and Freetown, in the person of, Alhaji Daramy Rogers and Allieu Mahdi respectively.

Mr. Harvey is the current District Chairman of the SLPP in Bonthe. He was Chairman of the Mineral Resources Committee in the last Parliament. During the last campaign period, Mr. Harvey was, naturally, an active campaigner for Solomon Berewa and the SLPP.

Observers see this as a major coup by the APC which is determined to make substantial forays in the stronghold of the opposition including even its partner in government, the PMDC. Mr. Harvey is also seen as a 'watermelon' politician whose acceptance to the APC appointment is viewed as an 'opportunist move' and a way of indirectly abandoning the party he has sacrificed for, all in the name of "opportunism."

"What this will mean for the consolidation of multi-party democracy is yet to be seen," stated one aggrieved SLPP supporter who views such arrangement as a setback to the development of multi party system of government in a fragile post-war country like Sierra Leone.

"How could a ruling government appoint a sitting District Chairman of an opposition party to a key position in a ruling government in the same locality were that appointee was aggressively opposed to the victory of the ruling government?" asked another SLPP supporter.

News, this is news to me.

But are you trying to insinuate that since this Mr. Harvey guy is (was?) a staunch SLPPer, he should not honor the nomination offered by the APCerians for a job he may be qualified to perform? If that is your thinking, then I beg to disagree with you.

It is very possible to serve the national interests of Sa Lon in this capacity under a government led by the APC. As long as your politics remain civilized (SLPP-style) as opposed to being uncivilized (APC-style). In other words, continue wearing the green while serving the country very dilligently.

At an earlier stage in their governance, we decried the "northernization" embedded in the TEMNECRACY being practiced by the APCerians, must we now decry their efforts in decentralizing this concept from the "temnecratic" tendencies in Temnecracy - or is it KONOCRACY?

I think that the local government elections to be held next month is the reason for this gimmick. Furthermore, please remember that Oldman, was a Kamajor official, working with Harry Will, in that region. You can now connect the dot on the letter "i", if you know what I mean.

I don't know much about this Harvey guy, but Oldman was my brother-in-law at one time. I pray that they are not the "watermelons" they are alleged to be in that article.

In conclusion, just 'coz you are an SLPPer, prominently, does not preclude your ability to work in the national interest under the APC.

Green nor for turn Red jus becus apc nominate you for job. Nar dem geh gofment for now.

Keep the faith, News. Keep the faith. It is our country too, you know!

I was in london yesternight and we were discussing about the way our
country is going - we are seeing the rebirth of the ONE-PARTY state.
Only this time, it is not by violence but through stealth coercion on the
human frailties. majority of the true SLPP members suffer from the
kabbah-pschotic syndrome. kabbah made sure in his time the set of
people the not see progress in their lives. now that he, kabbah, is
gone, the new Don EBK, sees the dispair and is ready to take advantage
of it. Very soon so many of us will be unsheepishly be kowtowing to
join the APC. Even Solo B is just waiting at the red light. I pray not to
be drawn to support the APC for personal gain but that of national
interest.

The giants of SLPP are no more and the bickering we hear around are
from toothless bulldogs who cannot change any effect. SLPP lost
something great when they allowed EBK to relaunch the SLPP radio
station. To me - it the greatest coup of the century to send us (SLPP)
30 years into wandering pastures. Why did it have to be EBK and not
any other from the party. The divisiveness in the party continue to
manifest itself everyday making the party prone to unelectibility and its
members trapped in a process of ineluctables.

Very soon JJ Blood will be taking up a position as he see no hope in
continuing the fight that goes nowhere.

For SLPP to make a grand comeback, unity has to come from the
bottom. We are all gonners - I will make it my pride not to join APC
but to serve my country whenever and wherever possible under them
on national interest.

This is the disease that is gnawing the very fabric of our country. Taking an appointment from the ruling party should not be interpreted as a ‘sell out.’ I think Mr. Harvey is genuinely taking the appointment on a patriotic perspective which I believe is in consonant with a sense of his forthright criticism of ANY wrong doing of the APC. All we can do as of now is to observe whether he will compromise his integrity with the supposedly ruling party ‘cake.’

Never in my days of following Leone Stars soccer have I seen a country disrespect Sierra Leone and her national team as South Africa. Before the game last saturday, South African journalists had a field day raining insults on our national team, the Leone Stars. And even after losing, they continue to lambast our national team in a mood of self-inflated egoes. Nothing can be more joyous than to see the Leone Stars eliminate Bafana Bafana on Saturday in Pretoria.


A win for Sierra Leone will eliminate South Africa from the 2010 Nations Cup and would almost certainly lead to the firing Joel Santana, the Brazilian coach who makes $250,000 a month. Seems like there will be historical symmetry - the defeat of the Okocha-led Nigerian team by the Leone Stars in 2001 resulted in the firing of Dutch coach Bonfrere Joe.

Losing to Nigeria is painful. Losing to Sierra Leone, a penniless rabble of brave nobodies, is numbing.

I don't know about you but the phrase above culled from the report below, is very insulting and uncalled for. The editor of that paper should here from us.

DAILY despatch

Sierra Leone 1 (1)
Scorer: Mohammed Kallon, 20th minute
South Africa (0) 0
Losing to Nigeria is painful. Losing to Sierra Leone, a penniless rabble of brave nobodies, is numbing.
For much of this shocking perfomance, Bafana were unable to counter the Leone Stars’ manic energy and brutal physical commitment.
Bafana were unlucky, but luck should never have come into it.
As they did in Lagos a fortnight ago, Bafana showed a disturbing lack of composure and guts in adversity.
The difference last night was the humiliating fact that Bafana’s conquerors were ranked 163rd in the world.
Playing in such hostile conditions can feel like playing in hell — but proud, spirited footballers must see hell as the land of opportunity.
Bafana started competently enough, adjusting to the sluggish but predictable surface.
Early on, Dikgacoi fed a crisp central pass to Terror Fanteni, who narrowly lost a foot race with Sierra Leonean keeper Christian Caulker.
But things took a queasy turn in the 20th minute, when Bryce Moon tripped Samuel Barlay a metre inside the penalty area.
The Leone Stars’ only household name, Mohammed Kallon, coolly deceived Itumeleng Khune to net the penalty.
Kagisho Dikgacoi nearly set up an instant riposte, dispatching a flawless cross to the unmarked Surprise Moriri on the penalty spot — but the Downs man cannoned his header well wide of Caulker’s right-hand post.
It could have gotten even more nightmarish when Kei Kamara dispossessed Steven Pienaar following a long throw into Bafana’s box. Kamara’s potent snap shot fizzed narrowly wide.
There was a rare flash of hope in the final minute of the half, but Moriri’s angled shot squirted a foot wide of the post after he had skilfully engineered some space in the box.
In the second half, Bafana improved somewhat, but the rawness of Bafana’s makeshift central defensive duo — Mokete Tsotetsi and Bongani Khumalo — became a hazard.
The edgy pair contrived to present Mustafa Bangura with a free shot in the heart of the box, which the Cyprus-based forward somehow squandered.
And minutes later, Khumalo nearly headed a long-range own goal.
Amid an increasingly rattled Bafana side, Dikgacoi showed admirable grit, striking the crossbar with a fine drive in the 60th minute.
Terror Fanteni also fought hard, but he was diligently marked by Ibrahim Kargbo and Ibrahim Koroma.
Seeking a dash of pace, Santana threw on Katlego Mashego, who quickly triggered a fine break that ended with an anaemic shot from Steven Pienaar. Fortune wasn’t favouring Bafana’s attackers — but the defenders were getting lucky. Kamara came within inches of netting a second with ten minutes to go.
Lerato Chabangu replaced Fanteni in the closing minutes, and soon drew an amazing point-blank save from Caulker.
The keeper also excelled to deny Pienaar and Khumalo, as a desperate Bafana poured forward during 4 minutes of injury time.
But it was too late to come alive. Bafana must learn to display true commitment from the kickoff onward — or else dark days such as this will be repeated in future.

South Africans are a big embarrassment to our continent - AFRICA. I
recall as a child how many of their leaders today we fed and sheltered -
I still remember my days at Bumpe, during the apartheid era, how we
will take some of them home to holiday with us during vacations.
These ungrateful elements should be left alone as the seeds they are
sowing now will very soon envelope them. It is no surprise to me for
their behaviour towards us. They cannot stomach the successes or
progress of others . You all saw what they did to migrants
communities in SA in the past months. They are still unrepentant!

Our so-called liberator - Nelson Mandela - was the first sell out. I
recall in 1991/92 when a group of anti-apartheid activists in London
wrote to 'Office of The President of South Africa' with a proposal to
help alleviate the sufferings of other African regions as the struggle for Apartheid had been won. Mandela wrote back saying that his job was
now with the South African people but "...thank you for your support".
Such was a slap in our faces! Another personal encounter with an ill-
bred South African was during my service at the Lewisham Refugee
Network (LRN) in London. I met the PhD candidate at the Royal Festival
Hall, Waterloo, london at a soiree. I was introduced as the person
responsible for looking after refugee affairs. She came on very strong
rejecting this reality. She showed so much arrogance towards us that i
had to use my usual psychological probe by asking what she was
doing. The question stunned her and she explained that she was a
PhD Candidate and was looking for a job. Everyone laughed. As we
left the show she followed us, around 2am. We went to our central
london office and finished the show there. there i told her to see me
the following Monday to discuss how best she can help us and we help
her. The story is too long so I will just skip the painful bits and go on
to what is relevant as to the character of this SA giant. I ended up
giving her a job and she maligned my authority and I had to reason as i
could not fire her without a battle. I kept in tough with the
organisation and was not surprised to hear that she stole £118,000.00
I left for Refugee Strategic Housing for families by making transfers
using the Online banking I had set up. These are the people who we
think they are giants - the SA are users of other people. We fought for
their freedoms and all they do is to kill the offsprings of the very
people that stood by them during their struggles which we all
embraced to be ours.

The irresponsible statements by the SA editor should not be surprising
to any of us - they are a bunch of umfaan - an offensive term for a
black African man in South Africa employed as a domestic servant.
Liberty has blinded them from who they really are.

Since the APC government took the reins, many people including me were expecting to know if there was a case of coruption. After a while, I began to ponder why have we not been informed of the past government's dealings as there are clear indications that during the rein of the past SLPP government, not all funds were expended correctly since there was no visible development in place. The thoughts in my mind was that this new government may well be tying to position itself in a way where no commission of enquiry would be made on them when they live power thats why they failed to instigate one against their predeccessors.

Now those thoughts are slowly fading away because the current government is ready to probe a commission of enquiry independent of the ACC. So all those who knows their hands to be dirty should be very afraid as there are no sacred cows this time around, the public needs to know whats going on in government.

I think a commission of enquiry should look at the most recent governmental infringement on powers not vested in the executive.

How bout we sack IB Kargbo for overstepping his mandate.
How about VP taking city council responsibilities when he had no right to..??
A breach on our constitutions i hear you say, or is it the local council act..
Clearly our VP is not responsible for trash collection..

Grounds for impeachment..?

Not that i am saying previous borbor belehs should not be probed. Of course they should, but should we concentrate on 2 years ago when last week is as worrying?

Why spend a few hundred thousand to run after a few hundred dollars... its a few houses, a few old cars and a few furnitures....
In the history of commission of enquiries.. NADA... natin, fying...nothing positive has come out of any..

Koroma Gobment should expend more energy in a shout of NEVER AGAIN, instead of WE GO PULL AM PAN UNA.
Its called evolution.

The SLPP past government continue to fool the people into beleiving that they actually did well when its the complete opposite. Recovering back all that has been illegally taken from the suffering masses, is what is need right now it will send shockwaves to would be corrupt officials.

I think this is one issue that all Sierra Leoneans agree on. we like our leone stars. I was wandering how since we cannot play whether there are ways to donate money and see results. If they could come up with an online way like OBAMA has in politics. i think any little bit we donate would add up. its time we stop just condeming them. or just blaming everything on government. how can we as Sierra leonean brothers help? lets get this topic going. i know its not that interesting to some since it does not involve attacks on slpp and apc. kabs kanu what do you think?

How long shall we continue donating money for Leone Stars? Leone Stars should not be our responsibility. It is the responsibility of SLFA to raise funds for the team.

Besides, what have they done to deserve poor starving people to part with their hard earned cash? We are too quick to jump on issues that we may not carry forward. Let's leave SLFA and goverment to battle with Leone stars. We have too much to think about now.

That Sierra Leonean philanthropy, to destroy rather make grow, I completed my pre-requisite for R.N. since 1001, is this that type of philanthropy? I don’t know about you but these days, when a Sierra Leonean says help, I will run for the hills because I know. I nearly died coming from school in Sacramento but thanks to God and God-loving people, I feel like a brother is not only by blood. Is this that type of philanthropy? The world wanted to help but you see what Sierra Leoneans, my compatriots some whom have never met me in life have to say to handicap such an effort, an issue involving 158 countries and more. We have said a lot about Sierra Leone to the world.
Well, I have to go, I am in class, still trying alone. What is the crime, where are the courts, where are the Lawyers?

Whether Shekito Meets George Bush or Bin Ladin or not, the important thing is Shekito has been invited to the White House. As a Sierra Leonean, you should be proud that your countryman is being recognized for his services to his country.

This same unrepentant arrogance and know-it-all attitude led you into opposition. And until you realize that Sierra Leone is greater than one's myopic political interest, you will die a frustrated man. Enti SLPP lef Yenga na Guinee man den hand.

Pa Foday Gbenteh, the name at State House and among Diplomats is Papa.
THE TRUTH let me first and foremost, thank you for the defense and guarantee you that Pa Foday Gbenteh whoever he or she might be, sounds like a desperate individual had failed in many tactics he or she might have tried against Sierra Leoneans, me in particular and is reverting to recycled formulas but he or she is ignorant of the magnitude of what he or she is playing with. He or she is virtually ignorant of Bambay and what many people do know Bambay is about. He or she is still day-dreaming that what he or she is trying to halt is child’s play. Thank God he or she is not man or woman and confident enough as I am to show their true identity. Otherwise, they will never speak in a civilized assembly through-out their lives if they have shame and conscience. But He might be any human, a criminal, a druggist, a rapist who knows! So I don’t pay serious attention to one who hides behind a ficticious name. He has something to hide.
It was some of their wishes that I was a junky but they are out of luck because I have a future, which no matter how tedious or how long, I have to fulfill for the sake of my promise to my mother, father and people that I will do my utmost, which does not involve foolishness.

lowest denomination. I am sure you are sitting in your little hut, self content with your failure in life,
whatever between your legs has not experience any change for the past ten years and hiding behind a
moniker to experience some grandiose effects to satisfy your natural and acquired deficiencies.
Shame on you, Pa Foday Gbenteh. Your subtle attack on Bambay Lans are unfounded, in my world, BLK is a
stand-up guy this forum and and other communities are extremely proud of.”

Let me continue to say that your courage is in the defense of Sierra Leone and all humanity, Black mothers and fathers who have their children shot or brutally killed because of haters like this, I say take heart. White fathers and mothers who have their children hooked-up on drugs or have died because of wicked people like this, please take heart and know that God does not love evil and evil doers will pay eventually. A man can hide but they will never hide from themselves and God.
THE TRUTH I am not taking your defense as a personal defense alone, in that the step you took to defend me is a defense for many Sierra Leoneans, some of whom are in Sierra Leone today because people like Pa Foday Gbenteh, who use to call Immigration and Naturalization for his compatriots because of unnecessary jealousy, in that some Sierra Leonean looked at their girl friends or was admired by somebody they too have been day-dreaming about therefore they called Immigration to get such people out of the way, and other Sierra Leoneans who took their lives because of this kind of hate people like him perpetrate, is a defense for them, their families and love ones they left behind. For those who passed away, may their souls rest in peace. For those who are now in Sierra Leone or are suffering in the Diaspora because people like this, through their gossips and malicious propaganda, caused beautiful people to loose their jobs or families, I say, take heart.
Once again, thank you for your response.
Pa Foday Gbenteh on February 29th. 1991, I left State House directly to Lungae, accompanied by the Personal Assistant to the President’s wife, my sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews in a two vehicle convoy to the Lungae International Airport for John F. Kennedy Airport aboard K.L.M. and was received at J.F.K on March 1, 1991 by the Head of Chancery (Assistant Ambassador) to the United Nations. Prior to that, I had graduated from the Milton Margai Teachers College, Worked at State House for four years. Whatever wrong I did not do in Sierra Leone because I was at an office I could meet anything and any one, I will not do such a wrong in the Land of Opportunity, where I know I can become a class of the caliber of people I met and admired at the highest and the best of everything Sierra Leone had to offer. You might be knew to many things in America but I have seen somany things in my life time and I came here to get mine. Fakha fisa.

Change will not achieve its natural effect when exaggerated for the mere thirst of change. CHEZ and Fen Plaba earlier stated
very poignant reasons for change, in part to exclude civil servants from active political affiliations and to include in the new

objectivity; needless to help them articulate their positions, but who are the ministers that can be justifiable axed at this
time? Is there any evidence of impropriety by any cabinet minister?

This is an important issue you just raised. It's good to have people who can think beyond politics.

Sewage construction and management is a very expensive but vital part of the social life of a country. In order to overcome this problem, we must not only live this huge task to the government we can start by forming a credible and reliable organization independent of government to carry out the construction of the drainage system. We can start by laying subscr1ptions which could raise up to US$100million (a diasporan affair). We are capable of raising this sum within 3 years if we all committed to it. We must not include politics in this.

Recent statistics by the UK government suggested that there're a million Sierra Leoneans in the UK alone and America holds the bulk of Sierra Leonean diasporan population.

The only stubborn obstacle to this would be to find the most trustworthy people to implement this work as our soceity seems to suffer cronic syndrome of coruption otherwise it is easy to accomplish.

I hope well meaning Sierra Leoneans give this important issue their best interests.

If we succeed in this venture, we could replicate it to other projects such as Road construction and even start building world class stadiums (1 in Makeni, 1 in Bo and 1 in Koidu Town) that will really boost our national pride, if this is done I see no reason why we shouldn't host high profile tournaments like our compatriots.

Thank you for this vital top. I am not here to critisize the current government but to loud my concern about the alarming problems regarding the sewage system in our cities, especially Freetown.

It is a known fact about the poor management of sewage disposal in the country. When you intend a visit to Freetown, even when coming from the provinces, the first problem that comes to your mind is the toilet system! Human excrement can be seen every where; backyards. streets gutters, beaches etc. My question here is "Can Sierra Leone ever be as clean as Singerpore?

I pray that our civil engineer graduates from our universities should form bodies/companies to be sponsored by the government to establish a viable sewage system in the cities.

Mr. Fenthi, thank you for responding as follows: “To my dear Bambay: I have been following your contributions here and in all the Fora you have been partaking in. I have great respect for you and the way you present your ideas. I do believe in almost all the positions you represent in your arguments. Sometimes I do think there is some idealism connected with some contributions. Reaching out to the other side of the political and socio-economic divide is something I do not only strongly believe in, but I have been strongly practising myself. However, understanding and not trivializing the vices of the past and the present is a prerequisite to mastering the virtues of the future -what all of us are aiming at.. I just got here and I would not like to talk a lot.”
I must say that I share the same sentiment about your contributions. I would like you to know that I am not refuting the fact that witch-hunt do exist in Sierra Leonean politics and other Sierra Leonean quarters. But you may agree with me that the witch-hunt, slander and other forms of malicious propaganda stem profoundly from ignorance: ignorance about global economics, ignorance about democratic practices, thus permeating into copying any and everything that politicians of yester-years have adopted, since they, the quacy politicians, succeeded in such practices, most of us do feel that if we adopt their styles we might be lucky too. But one thing that is certain these days, is that the political stage has transformed into idealism, reasoning, to which the people of particularly Sierra Leone, regardless of where they reside, try to educate themselves about what goes on in the global socio-political arena. As such, it would be foolhardy for a politician or political party not to follow the trends that are operative in effective global politics these days because of the sad illusion that our deeds are unknown to the people. Therefore, we will be doing President Koroma, any President of Sierra Leone, and Sierra Leoneans at large, a disservice should we do as others usually did by flattering Presidents in the face and stab them in the back.
I was brought-up by a man whom the President saw first thing each morning and last each day he worked at State House. I was fortunate to have me in his office, where I learned from him that loyalty is not fear but dedication and the willingness to succeed with whomever one serves with. This is why I do not wish for us to lead President Koroma astray as many African leaders have been misled to believing that they were/are loved by the people while around the corner, their mistakes are tongued constantly. We have the greatest opportunity by the usage of a media, the Internet that reaches the President each time we write here because he can access the forum/forums, where ever he is in this world. Therefore, we must ensure to lead and follow his lead. In doing so, let us do it with sincerity, honesty and dedication to Sierra Leone, as much as we wish for him to do in his leadership, not for what Sierra Leone can do for us but at the end of the day, we will be proud that we made tremendous national contributions to our country, remembering the Words of a great American President, John F. Kennedy who said, “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. Americans made great sacrifices; sacrifices that lore us to coming here; what are we living for our children, what can we say are national contributions we made that our children and their children’s children can be proud of when we are dead and gone?
I know President Earnest Koroma, and I hope this is not misconstrued, when I was in Sierra Leone, I use to go to his office almost every day, we were family friends whom we shared everything with from videos you name it. But knowing him does not mean that I should negate the fact that I owe my country. However, I do believe, as concerned a man he is, he will want to know what goes on in the Sierra Leonean quarters. We must not let him down but make the necessary corrections that will arm him in his deliberations.
Once again, thank you for your response and I will reiterate that I have tremendous respect for you as well. I am tired, just from work and will have to do another fourteen hours tomorrow therefore; I should not talk too much. Good night.

Honestly, Zainab is not up to the task. The APC has a few other options for this all important position and EBK must reconsider this appointment in the next cabinet reshuffle.

I sometimes cringe when Zainab holds a microphone and pray she sumarises and finishes ASAP. A better person to job match for Aunty Zain would be Ministry of Social Welfare and gender Affairs.

Dunno but it's about time.

I think the president should be given a chance to slay the economic beast. He has already proven his democratic credentials. His stance on the SLPP radio is really cool. It was a powerful message to see the APC and SLPP alagbas on the same podium rededicating a radio station that's gonna blast every thing Koroma and APC. I applaud the leaders of the two parties.

I agree with you Fen Plaba. Me thinks, in addition, the President must reinstate all senior civil servants sent on leave because of their political loyalties. As is, the country is short on human capacity and resources and some of those folks may be SLPP members, but well-educated civil servants. Le Prez must institute consistently strong internal self-controls to monitor performance and internal mechanisms for dealing with lapses in competence. In essence, get the best heads on board and roll on with the business of taking the country where it should be.

Kalos, I believe they are included in the Arabic context. Although not exactly a synonym of ‘reading’, the English term for ‘literacy’ has frequently been
associated and maybe even sometimes equated with ‘reading’ and ‘reading achievement.’ Literacy
seems to refer to the basic knowledge of reading. Research summarized by the National Reading Panel
(2000) describes literacy as a set of component skills that includes phonemic awareness and decoding,
fluency (speed and accuracy), vocabulary, and comprehension. Until recently, ‘literacy’ has frequently
been understood and defined as a universal set of transferable reading and writing skills. This definition
dominates much of the current policy and practice in literacy education and is opposed to the existence
of different literacies.
Although the Arabic language has a term for ‘reading,’ qirā’ah, and even one for ‘readability,’
’inqirā’iyyah, which relates to the ease with which a text can be deciphered and read, there is no word
that translates the English term ‘literacy’ in Arabic. This latter concept is jointly covered by ’ummiyyah,
the term used for ‘illiteracy,’ and maḥw ’al-’ummiyyah, which means ‘eradication of illiteracy’ or ‘anti-
illiteracy' (Maghreb 2007). The frequent use of ’ummiyyah when dealing with the literacy context gives a special social
connotation to the meaning and place of the ‘literacy’ effort in the Arabic speaking region and shifts the
locus from the linguistic reality of the phenomenon to the social conditions and attitudes which are
closely attached to it. This terminological void, which is detrimental to a clear understanding of the
nature of the problem, would end with the coining and use of a new word such as qirā’iyyah, which
would link Arabic literacy to its etymological source (Maamouri 1999).
Finally, ‘literacy’ and its opposite concept ‘illiteracy’ seem to relate to two different facets of the same
reality. Stephen Pinker (1994:188) recently noted that illiteracy, the result of insufficient teaching,
needs to be addressed within the defining framework of an incomplete and unsuccessful educational
process – or the total lack of one -- the reasons for which need to be studied and thoroughly analyzed.
In the lemma on roll, Arabic literacy will only be studied within the linguistic perspectives of the
Arabic language.

Sierra Leone's literary system is an incarnation of the British system and all assessments are, I believe, based on such. Your father and grandfather are indeed literate in the arabic context but illiterate in the english context.

Leone Stars triumph over Bafana

Sierra Leone's captain scored from the penalty spot to give them the win

Sierra Leone's strong performances in qualifying were finally rewarded on Saturday, as they inflicted a bad defeat on 2010 World Cup hosts South Africa.

The Leone Stars beat Bafana Bafana 1-0 in Freetown, to peg back Joel Santana's side in their bid for a place at the Nations Cup.

The Sierra Leone captain Mohammed Kallon scored the only goal of the game, from the penalty spot in the 22nd minute.

The result leaves South Africa with just three points from their first three games.

Sierra Leone were unlucky not to get a point in their game against Nigeria last weekend.

The Super Eagles scored with just one minute remaining in that game.

Nigeria are in Equatorial Guinea for their next match, on Sunday

It is true to say the future of a nation lies in the hands of its youthful generation. In order to solve the problems of tomorrow, we must have a solid and rightful education and training.
I have a worrying concern I would like others to share with me. It is a rather negative one. It is what I called "The dismal abuse of power by youthful politicians". By this I mean, most of the politicians who come to the reigns of state power easily dump their nations in ditches because of many reasons, among which:
1/ Lack of proper political background and experience.
2/ Eagerness to amass wealth in no time.
3/ Uncotrolable amourosity
4/ Brutality, aggression against their opponents/rivals
5/ Disrespect of ethical and moral values
I wouldn't like to generalize but I can draw a stark example to the regeme of the NPRC. The regeme left ireparable moral and ethical damage to our nation. Drugs, Jamba smoking and prostitution became the norms of the day. Some of those guys are flaunting around to have a taste once more of the power they misused years back.

To me, when I cast a look on almost all politicians in the world, I hardly see youths in top political ladder, apart from coup makers. Politics is long term experience and devotion in the service of a nation and not to brag and boastfully humiliate opponents as Sierra Leoneans are fond of. However, I am not here to sanitize the elederly politicians of Sierra Leone, as they are known to have committed the most dispicable political blunders in the history of our land. But what I mean here is for our youthful talented politicians to be prudent as history will reveal their actions.

I think the future leaders of the APC should be spotless clean from all forms of political impurities; few of which I mentioned earlier. As such the party stands to gain more in the near future, as our people are looking foward to leaders with such values.

In Dr EBK's leadership of the APC party, I am confident that he will never tolerate any member with a responsible position to destroy the state and the party image with incompetency, greed and lust.

Every word above makes a lot of sense and truism save that part that
you touched on age. Age is a relative term. Take a look at the current
leader of the Conservatives, David Cameron, who is about 41 years
going 42 in october this year. He is running his party with distinction
and has to some extent united the party - that is a youthful political
leader. I am a few months older than him.

This problem has long existed and we have not addressed it. past
leaders always see fit their own offsprings or close kin to take over
their reins and not any other noble citizen. Such existence and
allowance created so many buffoons parading with titles they cannot
defend. I happen to be privileged to know so many and my advise to them is as you stated to make it a must "...have a solid and rightful
education and training." Some are now doing their GCE's and other
university entry requirements to brush up. It is not a crime to start late
in life, especially where education is concern. Some did not have the
opportunities some of us had then. Where are many of us today - at 28
I had very viable outfits that supported so many backed with education
up to masters level. What happened after that? Life is a brilliant game
worth chancing - every jerk has his day and make sure you utilise that

I understand how price increases can be destablizing and that the govt needs to stay on top of the situation so that we don't start having protests and civil unrests, but why is the govt coming out so forcefully to state that there will be no price increase in fuel?

One May 30th, crude oil jumped $11 in one day! It is now flirting with $140. Unless the govt has some back room deal with the petroleum marketers and the SL gov is now subsidizing fuel prices, there is absolutely no way in the world petrol prices can't go up.

Why are they risking coming out looking like liars in a couple months? Prices were raised when oil was going from $60-80, but they won't raise them now that oil has climbed even higher?

Saudi Arabia and other gulf states can afford to give us a few million gallons of petrol without blinking. Have those avenues been explored?

The stregnth of the APC lies in its wise move to give Ernest Koroma the leadership position. Folks, this man is an organised man. I remember EBK with his grey Volvo car. At that time he was an executive Insurance man. One thing i distinctly remember was his accuracy in time. His volvo plied our street every working day at the same time. Inside that car, was a well dreesed man.
Those were the days, when the one party Ministers were against time and progress.
To sum it all, Sierra Leone has finally got a man that will make major changes in the life of its inhabitants.
It will take the detractors a great deal to be able to thwart that man quality to effect change.

Not in haste my dear countryfellow! EBK may be the good man you
described - if his inner circle continue to give too much of the
embarrassments we saw in the last couple of weeks, his chances of
creating a greater impact on our lives and country will be minimal. I
know he has a very good advisory team not belonging to his cabinet,
party or parliament - if he sticks with them - we will see what you have
described.

Yes, he has the potentials to be one of the greatest leaders we have
ever known, considering the current age in time. With prudence, just
as he made a u-turn, by re-opening the SLPP radio, He shall see favour
from the Sierra Leone people and the world entire.

He has to come to grips with the conduct of many of his selfish and
greedy 'yes-sir-master' ministers to encourage them to engage him
through explorative reasoningin when addressing issues of national
importance. take the case of the closure of the radio station - how
dumb was IB Kargbo not to have seen the danger in trying to concur
and support that which was a blatan violation of rights and values.

My fear is that we will be seeing a ONE-PARTY nation if opposition of
stamina and values do not sufface.

Has any malaise got to do with your statement? I know Sullay Daramy
well and being a seasoned diplomat Our president could not get
another replacement if he were to do that which you seek.

There are procedures for such - contact the civil service standards
committee and make your complaints - in ernest, they will deal with
the situation.

Many do not like Sullay Daramy because he has served in many
regimes. Such should be the practice of an efficient civil servant. I
have know the bloody hobo now for 20 years and I do admire his tact
and purpose to duty. I could have gotten a job from the diplomatic
mission if Sullay Daramy was a corrupt and inefficient hobo. I recall
graduating with a top notch masters in diplomatic law and practice
only for Sullay to give me civil service forms and asked me to go down
to Sierra Leone. I was really upset! Upset that there were employees
appointed to take up posts that did not go down to Freetown. After
sometime, I confronted him and he explained that he does not mix
business, politics and familial relations with his job as a civil servant.

During the General elctions, he was coerced into taking up the job of
national campaign strategic manager of the SLPP during the run-off. i
called to give some inputs into how best we can do better. As usual, he
gave me a hint that made me know that he does not compromise
familiarity with his duty as a civil servant.

If you are not happy with Sullay about the way you have been treated,
complain to the standards committee and I bet they will mount an
enquiry as they themselves do not like Sullay.

That is why there are procedures and standards laid down that
aggrieved persons and the employees can always visit. I know Kanji is

Sullay is what you will call 'Frankie Fobo' the crafty and cunning
squirrel. He will do all he can not to soil his hands. Only one area I
saw him starting to behave like the normal Joe Dee - the woman
palaver. Some say he is enjoying it wutehteh.

Kanji was to myopic - he failed to see beyond his then position. Sullay
on the other hand has tact comparable to my 'Frankie Fobo'. He is a
fine craftsman to say the least. Santigie, Sullay has done nothing good,
in respects of favours, towards my person for me to say this of him. he
is the kind of civil servants a nation should be proud to have.

If he decides to see every single person that want to see him he would simply not have time to do the job he signed up for.Even deputy ministers can no loger go to see prezzo without prior booking. They are twenty in number, and they would want to see the president even for the most trivial of issues that they could sort out with the minister at their level.

Well put Sadman. This seems to be the bottom line - Chief of Protocol is not Kargbo, Yapo, Obai, Bankura, or Santigi.

The only reason most of these loosers want to see Prezo is to beg for favours they might not even be qualified for, consequently distracting an already weakened and lackluster presidency further. State house should be and must be for serious and purposeful people/visits, whether its SLPP or APC. So back off this man.

I do not know SD personaly but believe he knows and does his job very professionally. Imagine if State House became Krootown road as some are wishing, where every geezer works in and out as they please...

Our reasoning behind our choice of leader could e likned to the foundation of a house. If the foundation is weak , the house is bound to crumble. So too our reasonning, if it is not sound then our choices will not represent the best intrest of the country.
Brothers and sister until we come to the full realisation that reasons like those stated above (for choosing our leaders)have no bearing absolutely to good leadership, we will continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. Until such a time politicians will continue to succeed in their exploitation of the mases and the end of every 5 year term will continue to be nothing but misery for people.
THE FINAL FINAL END OF IT ALL IS ALL OUT WAR BETWEEN THE MENDES AND THE TEMNES. U NARBELIEVE OH. WE NOR DAE PRAY FOR DAT OH BUT BY THE WAY THE COUNTRY EN POLITICS DAE GO E LOOK LEK SAY THE BATTLE LINES ARE BECOMIN CLEARER WITH EVERY SLPP OR APC GOVT.LONTA

Sadman insane, the generalisations has polluted my thoughts and
surrounding. I and I believe there are others who do not subscribe to
such reasoningas posited above. I have always seen myself as a God-
fearing person first, a Sierra Leonean second, world citizen third and
the rest is irrelevant and can only be dictated or influenced by the
three depending on the character, the contents and where I am - I
mean the circumstances I may be in.

There will never be a mende/temne war in Sierra Leone. The only civil
dispute you will ever find is that of people of same interests coming
together to achieve their selfish desires. The real temne loves the
mende man and the real mende man loves the temne man. The rivalry
is part of the beauty of the divide and not an element to further
distance the two tribes apart.

The illegitimate temnes and illegitimate mendes are the cause of the
aggressive divide. I mean the adopted temnes and mendes. I
sometimes ask myself - who is a mende and who is a temne? In my
search for such an answer, I'll come to understand that the real
maccoys - TEMNE AND MENDE - are disappearing. Others have
adopted these names and are the very elements that fan hatred that
does not exist. I would not like to name tribes but among other tribes
are selfish individuals that have captured the advantage point of a
false-divide to use for their selfish ambitions.

Let us be wise in our thoughts and deeds and not allow these good-
for-nothing elements to destroy the unity we should be celebrating.

No battle will exist - I have a real story for these outcasts - mostly
originating from Guinea, Middleeast and many from mali - they are not
a peaceful bunch - their forefathers were driven from these regions to
our region. Why cant they stay silent and allow all of us to enjoy peace.

Look at the people always fanning these hatreds - check their origins
thoroughly and you will see that they are the heirs of a troubled past.
We should not allow them to brood such hate amongst us. I entertain
not such miscreants.

Fellow Netters,

If know of any potential funding leads, please help a patriot. I am requesting investment in a $9,400 research project on developing a leadership-fit model—Effective Leadership for Corruption-Ridden Environments (ELCORE)—Sierra Leone as a case study. Helping me with potential funding sources is your support of a proposal to study presidential power and influence and its effect on corruption in Sierra Leone. Of all Sierra Leone's challenges, none is more critical — or more daunting — than dealing with the problem of pervasive corruption in the country. Sierra Leone hankers for a transformation most nations in the West enjoy in this modern era: a liberalized and technologically advanced economy within an established democratic order.

There are several problem areas I have identified in the context of this study that have driven the focus of this dissertation to a study of presidential power and influence and its effects on corruption in Sierra Leone fully explained in the attached dissertation prospectus.

The government of Sierra Leone and good governance advocates could benefit from this research on the basis that the study could generate knowledge about presidential leadership skills that is relevant to managing a national environment with multifarious problems and inadequacies in key areas of government. The results of the study can be the centerpiece of the most sensible civic education program in Sierra Leone devoted to the understanding of presidential leadership in Sierra Leone national affairs, and can empower readers to discuss presidential issues and shaping civil society organizations’ approach to the national development debate. The president also could use such knowledge generated for his personal and political advancement and good governance advocates could use the knowledge about presidential leadership in the context of Sierra Leone national environment to maximize their advocacy. Leadership theories from available research literature would be used to support findings from data collected on Sierra Leone to give substance to the study.

The work proposed here builds on previous studies of anti corruption measures and good governance. This study proposes both a structure within which to examine effective leadership in corruption-ridden environments and provides an implementation method. It is proposed to use the ELCORE model as a set of strategy, policy and program recommendations to assist the presidency of Sierra Leone and all relevant decision-makers to ensure that the calamities of corruption does not have to be followed by a disaster of leadership. The study also offers to provide a new foundation and paradigm on a leadership-fit model, which incorporates and integrates a number of approaches into a multidisciplinary and systems thinking manner in order to better understand the complexity and dependencies of issues at hand. It is believed that such a systems approach could better be able to incorporate the complexities involved and would offer much better results than the approaches currently in use.

This work is a dissertation project that will be submitted in partial fulfillment for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy and is supervised by three distinguished scholars: Dr. Aquiel Ahmad, Dr. Godwin Igein and Dr. Constantine Alfred-Ockiya who are all faculty of Walden University and renown experts in the field of social science. The work, when completed and satisfactory in all respects, and that any and all revisions required by the review committee have been made, will be published and funders will be accordingly acknowledged.

I am requesting $9,400 to carry out the proposed work plan I have articulated in the attached dissertation prospectus. This amount will cover the following costs:

• One trip to Sierra Leone for two months for data collection ($2,100 for air tickets – Denver/Freetown/Denver); plus $1,600 two months living expenses)
• Transcr1ption of 15 hours of interviews ($1,200)
• Five half-time research assistants who will be trained to collect data (at $300 per research assistant which includes their local transportation and fees for the entire exercise (total $1500).
• Materials and supplies/copying/communication: ($3,000).

If I can provide additional information to encourage consideration of my request or have any questions concerning this proposal, please send me an email at kenday.kamara@waldenu.edu.

Most sincerely,

IB Kargbo has become a laughing stock. I have always know that this
character, when a journalist was always begging, will do so even when
in a position that he once criticised its occunpants. He is a disgrace -
IB KARGBO - remove your cloak of humanity and put on that of a
psychotic sycophant. You are a shameless character and in truth, your
lack of lateral thinking will send you to an early grave. You once
professed to stand for justice, fair play and humanity! Where are all
these hypocritical thoughts you once harbored in your sick and selfish
mind? You have become a waste of space!

Are you not able to reason with your president when things like these
happen? Do you have to allow yourself to come to a position of
concour and support even when you truly believe that a reasoning
engagement with the President would yield resolutions that will give
you some respect! You have indeed become the lowest of the lowest.

President Koroma is showing us that he is not the problem but the
people he relies on. Every leader's potential is determined by such
people. If they a weak in reasoning as IB Kargbo has demonstrated to
the nation and the international community, the leader is incapable of
creating any positive impact on the socio-economic welfare upkeep of
his people.

The likes of IB Kargbo, who have now come to look so devilish and
hypocritical, should have no place in his government. They should be
proactive in their thinking to prevent the continual embarrassment
their regime face everyday. Their greed has overtaking the values
which we all thought they once had.

Shame on you IB Kargbo - you are a waste of space.

Prezo does not want to see Mike Kolonko (or is it Kalinke?) period. Does Mike Kalinke not know Agnes's abode in Goderich? Does he not know any APC agba who can connect him? If not, then he is a nonentity. Living in Holland is not a prerequisit to see Prezo. I am sure if he is not coming cap in hand, dae paa go see am.

Mr. Margai, I may be adressing you for the first and last time.Civil language is what is called for here. The President is our Father of the State, fountain of honour. The fact that he should be treated with the utmost respect cannot be overemphasized here. I first of all did not understand who you refer to here as Agnes. If the information I gathered from a friend is true that you are refering to The President of Sierra Leone, YOUR President, then I can only look at you as a truely lost soul. Have a nice day.
To my dear Bambay: I have been following your contributions here and in all the Fora you have been partaking in. I have great respect for you and the way you present your ideas. I do believe in almost all the positions you represent in your arguments. Sometimes I do think there is some idealism connected with some contributions. Reaching out to the other side of the political and socio-economic divide is something I do not only strongly believe in, but I have been strongly practising myself. However, understanding and not trivializing the vices of the past and the present is a prerequisite to mastering the virtues of the future -what all of us are aiming at.

Mr. Fenthi, I am confident President Koroma is not working in the mindset of the politics of yester-years. I have said it time again, and I stand resolutely on the view that until we revolutionize our mindsets about politics and nationalism, until we try to fully understand and live democratically-minded, we shall constantly return to the politics of divide and conquer; we shall constantly return to the Pavlovian political theory that suggests that a leader must be feared not love, a political theory that has nurtured dictatorship in most Third World Countries, a system that is clearly in opposition to democratic form of politics, the politics of the day, which, I believe President Koroma has seen as the only way forward for Sierra Leone, and democracy cannot flourish without the exercise of free speech.
In this regard therefore, I am kindly appealing that to understand President Koroma’s action with regards to honoring this invitation is to understanding the protocol for national leadership and the protocol at State House. President Koroma`s Chief of protocol as Mr. Margai has categorically stated, cannot prevent any one from seeing the President. There must have been a misunderstanding as far as that story goes.
By and large, we must be willing to see people with different views from us not as enemies or adversaries if you will, but opponents who can be converted if we adopt the right political strategy in a democratic fashion. Democracy is about reasoning not coarsen. Therefore, we must not see moves by political opponents, in this case the S.L.P.P’s launching a radio station in Sierra Leone, as a move against the A.P.C. if the proper laws are in place. The only flaw that might make it a move against the A.P.C. will be, if parliament does not pass and enforce such laws effectively and if the S.L.P.P. misuse the radio station irrespective of the said laws. The S.L.P.P. therefore must be accountable to these laws.
President Koroma or the A.P.C. government stopping the S.L.P.P. from launching a radio station will be a stampede on free speech, will set a precedence that might come back to hunt the A.P.C. in the long run, which will transgress our quest for freedom.
In closing, let me say that it is incumbent on all Sierra Leoneans to familiarize themselves with Sierra Leone’s politics, the International politics and how most or all political systems have impacted the societies in which they were/are practiced and avoid the guess game or the he-say-she-say philosophy, which has deprived many Sierra Leoneans today because, never mind; Got to go!

To be FRANK, I believe in free speech
To be FRANK, I am worried about the proliferation of political radio stations.
To be FRANK, it will come a time when neither radio stations will abide by the rules of responsile broadcasting, especially during electioneering period, when the fight for every single vote is all that matters
To be FRANK, these stations will accentuate the already political differences that are threatenning to keep us apart as a nation.
To be FRANK i dont think our political maturity, and tolerance has reached that level when these two radio stations can live side by side in peaceful co-existence without without one occassionally steppin on the other toes
To be FRANK the SLBS should be empowered (with professionals and equipment),transformed into a corporation, and dilute the government grip on it, so that it will accord any pary (including those that dont have the means to have their own stations) approx. equal air time to pass their message across under the guidance of the SLBS board
TO be FRANK i will like to see a debate on the MERITS and DEMERITS of the proliferation of political radio stations vis a vis their impact on our fledging democracy
To be FRANK i am worried.

Cocorioko Staff,
Please note that Sheaka Tarawallie is not the first Sierra Leone government spokesman to be invited to the White House. In 1996 the then Presidential Spokesman, Professor Septimus KaiKai interned at the White House for over a month at the invitation of the Press Secretary of former President Clinton. After that the then Presidential Affairs Minister, Hon Momodu Koroma was also invited for a study program on the workings of the US Presidency.

Who is a true blue northern? What about Rt. Hon John Saad? Dr.
Soccoh in my definition of a northern is not as his ties and links are
more rooted in the Southeast. His father's roots may be from the
north but he allies himself more with Southeasterners. That is not a
crime to belong to a particular buy yet believe in the whole. There are
other establishments and departments that cuts across regional lines.
We are the people fanning ugly tribal or regional dissections. The
president has his powers to be surrounded by people who are
committed and loyal to his governing agenda - if you cannot trust one;
why recommend him to hold a position when you know that that
individual will not be loyal and committed to your course? I will do the
same if I were EBK - will only appoint those I can trust and can show
committment to my political agenda.

Now take a good look at the composition:
Ernest Bai Koroma

Sahr Sam-Sumana

Zainab Hawa Bangura

David Carew

They are at it again the myopic and narrow-minded SLPP!Why such naivety? What is wrong with inviting EBK to re-launch the SLPP radio station? Is the SLPP not part of Salone? If they are indeed part of Salone is EBK the president of Salone not their president too? By inviting EBK J.J.Blood has made it categorically clear to those old-fashioned SLPPers like the senile and erratic Bernadette and the sluggish UNS Jah that the re-launch is a non-political affair;that the SLPP is ready to contribute to the creation of the new Salone;that they have embraced the attitudinal change concept.So gone is old politics of sabotage,enemity, corruption and inflamatory activities.To hell with the old SLPP!
I hope old-fashioned SLPPers and loyal bootlickers have got the message loud and clear! This is a new era in Salone politics.I would like to see the APC reciprocate in one or the other as well as the SLPP.

Now we are seeing real politics.Politics does not mean non-cooperation or eternal fighting.We as Saloneans with politics aside need each other so why should we waste so much time creating, promoting and maintaining enemity?

With such moves by JJ Blood and EBK late Sir Milton, Sir Albert and Sir Shaki are now tossing and turning in their graves with envy and frustration for not thinking of this during their own time but at the same time will be happy that a new sane and conscious generation of politicians exists in modern Salone that has re-shaped politics for a new,advanced and developed Salone!

So when Koroma set out on a systematic dismissal of anyone suspected of supporting SLPP did he do so as Prezo of APC or Salone? How does he explain the fact that Bombali and Makeni in particular have no monopoly over jobs in Salone?

Would Obama call George Bush to launch his campaign or ask him to deliver a keynote address at one of his rallies? Some of you guys get far too emotional and take leave of your senses--thats me being presumptive...

This clearly shows that we will not sit down and watch pres. Ernest Koroma kill the democracy our people fought for, the country will never go back to the tyrannic days of Pa Shaki and Joe Momoh as pres. Koroma promised us.

Even if he appoints them from only his house, that is his prerogative. He has the right as the President of Sierra Leone to appoint whosoever he pleases. (If U nor lek dat, go butt cotton tree). When Berewa and Kabba sacked JB Dauda and others for not supporting the candidacy of Berewa, why didnt you open your mouth. The reason why the constitution gave the President that right is because of people like you. The people of Sierra Leone will determine if what he did was right or wrong in five years time. In fact you will not be a part of that decision as you are an illegal alien in another man's country. The day you leave America, that will be the last time you ever see it again.

Has not been verbal about the SLPP harrassment dilemma.. all over the country.. and looting of SLPP HQ..
He has not been verbal about his Vice Presidents infringment on rights of individual..

Has not come clean on the libyan res wohala and his role as Nassit oversight chairman.

These are all sensitive national issues that bred bad blood.. and could have triggered reprisal attacks if the SLPP wanted to escalate the issue..

Allowing him to RE-launch the radio station.. is akin to a murdering unvailing the plaque at the victims memorial..

For goodness sake Presiden Koroma's term of office is not unlimited. Before long we will all have the opportunity to judge his stewardship and make a decision as to whether to give him another term or not. This is the civilise way to go about things in a democratic society

Until that time comes let us all accord to him both the support and respect that a head of state deserves. If we have to criticise let us do so constructively.To be frank some of the adjectives (eg dumbo) that people are using to describe the president does not fit his sattus.

Leaders or even ordinary people like you and me earn respect, my dear bro. Respect is not given arbitrarily like handouts to beggars or cheap Claymore shots to Minister Sesay @ parties in Philly.

When a so called leader allows every scumbag like IB Kargbo and police sergeants at airports to make policy decisions inimical to our country's national security, it becomes incumbent on all patroitic S Leoneans to protest in no uncertain terms.

As far as I am concerned Agnes is still in cocoland and that is why he allows every Tom, Dick & Harry to call shots. Which smart man allows friends or cronies to damage his image or undermine his authority?

EBK seemed to be against the closure of the Unity radio, as he clearly showed yesterday. Did you hear him cough once? He could have stopped IB in one phone call... he chose to play dumb... or may be he is really that dumb. Sadman, even you, have better use of disretion than our ceremonial Prexy.

You seem to forget that EBK is a Sierra Leonean like us all. Only 12 months ago (b4 Christiana Thorpe's intervention), the highlight of EBK's career was being a successful insurance retailer. He is obviously in new territory and may still think he is running an issurance business. But any smart guy should now wake up from the slumber and start taking meaningful decisions or at least letting folks know he is in charge. Do we have to wait till this man drags the nation down with him? Hero worshiping has never helped anyone. Ask Valentine Strasser.

When Agnes starts to control hooligans and disruptive cronies... when he declares his assets... when he starts becoming aware of implications of thug behaviour of some of his underminers (like IB Kargbo)... when he stops barking empty rhetorics like attitudinal change - insulting our collective intelligence... when he stops northernisation of the NEC and other salient national institutions like the Cabinet, police and army...then and only the will he earn my respect.

Tell me 3 significant policy decisions Agnes has taken in 9 months. Do you know the disproportionate number of northerners in his lackluster cabinet?

Boh Sadman lef...

Although in a Conservative Beduoin Society and a Mornarchy, Sierra Leoneans cannot restrain or surpress their bulging jubilation on the victory of the party in the last presidential and parliamentary elections. It is true that we don't have a large number of our natials here in the Oil Gulf Region but there are talented individuals who would like to make meaningful contribution towards the nation building of Sierra Leone.

Already a list of substantial number of registered members,has been tendered to the Headquarter in Freetown for full membership cards. It is worthy to mention here that the already registered old members of the party plus the new ones are ready to give their fullest support to the party , His Excellency Dr. EBK and to the nation in reshaping the country in all human standards of the 21st century.

But paddy you call yourself 'Alpha' and you place your bet on superstitions? Friday is ever a good day irrespective of which date it falls.For the fact that it is the day for the Juma or congregational-binding prayer means nothing bad will happen if you truly believe in only good and not evil.And remember with God everything is good.

After illegally ordering the closure of the SLPP radio, EBK has now learned the hard way - Sierra Leone is not a place for Ol APC politricks of violence and muzzling opposition & free press. He was dressed down by British and American diplomats for his demonstrated weak leadership and lame attempt to intimidate the opposition. They told him he should be focusing his attention on the increasing hardship S. Leoneans are facing and not the Unity radio.

Shame faced and embarassed he attempted to launder his increasingly irresponsible tenure (akin to J S Momoh), by publicly 'eating his words'. The SLPP's master strategy of "uh dat lock doh mot nar im go open nam" worked beautifully. A speaker at the session lectured Mr Weak Prezo that he should learn to control his rag tag cabinet Ministers and that he hopes they are not calling him Mr President for nothing.

Another SLPP big von privately told him that his usual "ar nor know' response to foolish and corrupt practices is a glaring sign of incompetency. EBK apologised for his naiveity and inability to control thug ministers and others that are misbehaving in public (eg the Aeroplane nuisance & drunken Monster in the US). He also admitted in private that indeed what Mr Margai (PMDC) was saying was largely true - "I am working on it" he's noted to have said.

A diplomat present at the session said that now that he has 'opened it', he must ensure it stays open as it is the only civilise thing his tenure will be remembered for.

Don't take us back to the dark APC days, please please President Agnes Koroma. It will not e in your interest. Lonta as Fen P would say.

You dont say..or is it the grammer thats wrong..?

So far.. President Kabbah in my own books the best President.salone has had..

For EBK ..lets wait and see.
I am not saying Ernest wont be.. just too early to pass judgement, good/bad.

I think the party will eventually wear him down and my prediction is he will end up a lame duck and ineffective president like Momoh.

I dont see him (so far he has not demonstrated that he can) asserting his authorising over the party and takign full responsibility for party actions..

If your information minister can close down radio and you act and say you did not know.. then maybe they are not inviting you to party meetings..And you should be afraid. Especially with the way EBK ascended the RED throne.

Paa true say tok me... Dis former insurance seller knows nothing about governing a country - and it shows. How can you order a radio closed and then turn round and launch it in 3 weeks. I only wish he can revisit some of the other numerous blunders he has made in his short tenure, including:

1. Arm twisting Christiana Thorpe to 'de-mendefy' the NEC; illegally sack ONLY mendes in management positions
2. Politicise our police force & military; conscr1pt the leatherboots and other RUF/AFRC miscreants into the forces
3. Dah very expensive rented electricity 4 freetown
4. Refusal to declare his assets
5. Refusal to rein in Alfa Kanu from award of Gof'ment contracts
etc
Believe me, these will come back to hunt Agnes, even after he's left power in 2012, Unless of course he rectifies them immediately.

1. Brother Jacob it it a fact that all tribes were represented at NEC. It just has to be so because it is a a national institution. It is also a fact that there were disproportionally more mendes than probably all the othr tribes put together. That besides Christiana Thorpe did not fire them arbitrarilly.She gave reasons for doing so. Was it proper for the logistic office to travell to lungi to receive sensitive voting materials in the company of people and vehicles that have absolutely no buisnes with NEC? Tel me brother J doesnt this man deserves to be discipline regrdless of his tribe? When christiana thorpe took disciplinary action against him, didnt all the Mendes at neck signed a letter querying the lady who was suppose to be their overall boss? What does that tell you brother J as to the motives of those mende guys at neck at then time. Are they working in the wider intrest of the country or in the more narrower intrest of their tribe. As for the two commissioners behaviour when they could not have their way we better leave it like that. They essentially sacked themselves.

2. As far as I know every military prsonel with administrative duties who is entitle to a vehicle should have one regardless of his tribe. This is an entitlement that no minister can take away from him. To say Minister Palo is taking vehicles from non nothern military administrators is hard to believe because these people are worjing for the army and the natin. By depriving them of their official entitlements is tantamount to strangling the army that minister Palo is there to protect.

3. Brother J on the issue of light, TIFF no TIFF freetown is better today than in the era of the slpp. Dont tell me the slpp did not steal from the national coffers. But if they had stolen (as they did anyway) and at least give us the poor masses light would that not have been better?

4. Brother J you are telling the world that Kabba never made empty rhetorics andpromises? Lajilaaaaaaaaa Lai la la Mahamadu rasululai. Brother J God dae see oh. What about the lungi bridge (on two elections), what about we go go to bed with our stomachs full in 2007?. What do you call these? are they not empty rhetorics? Did you take Kabba to task about these in his 5 yrs + 6 months + 6 Months + 5 years term? Why harrasin ernest who is only 9 months old in office? You see Brother J I dont mind putting our leaders on their toes lest they become complacent. But we must be objective. If I had seen you at the forefront of criticising Kabah for his failures , then I would side with you if you criticise ernest because i know you are doing it in a fair manner and in the intrest of the country. But so far that hasnt been the case. It seems your criticism of ernest is based soly on the fact that he is not one of yours. this is not good for our country my brother.

5. Man did you know about the case in ABUJA. It is between Kabba and the government of sierra leone versus wanza. probably kabba was just using his position to evade or frustrate the court. that is why wanza intenify his court action after he has let and not because he has found 419er in the apc.

Humility And Pride

Dear Believers:
Assalamu 'Alaikum (Peace be unto you)

My talk to you today is the very important topic of humility which was the cause of success and happiness of many people in the history of mankind. The lack of which brought catastrophes and miseries everywhere in the universe. The subject is "Humility versus Pride."
The word "humility" (Tawadu') has not been mentioned in the Qur'an as such but it has been mentioned in different ways. The other word for Tawadu' is Zull. The different forms of Zull are : Zillah; Al-Zull; while the word "pride" has been mentioned 66 times in different forms and for different aspects of life.
The different forms of the word "pride" are:
kibriya’
mutakabbir
Al-mutakabbir
Al-mutakabbireen
mustakbiran
istikbar
mustakbireen
al-mustakbireen
mustakbiroon
istakbara
istakbarta
istakbaroo
istakbartum
tatakabbara
yatakbartum
kibr
The best type of humility is that one which Allah Ta'ala recommended to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). In this regard Allah says in the Qur'an in Surah Ash-Shu'ara' (The Poets):

"And lower your wing (in kindness) unto those believers who follow thee." (26:215)

Allah also advised Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to be humble to any believer. In this regard Allah says in Surah Al-Hijr (The Rocky Tract):

"...and lower your wing ( in tenderness) for the believers." (15:88)

The manner in which the Muslims should behave toward one another, is that of humility. In this regard Allah says in Surah Al-Maidah ( The Table Spread):

"O you who believe! Whoso of you becomes a renegade from his religion (know that in his stead) Allah will bring a people whom He loves and who love Him, humble toward believers, stern toward disbelievers, striving the way of Allah, and fearing not the blame of any blamer. Such is the grace of Allah which he giveth unto whom He will. Allah is All-Embracing, All-Knowing." (5:54)

Allah has commanded the believers to treat their parents with kindness, humility and mercy. In this regard Allah says in Surah Al-Isra':

"And lower unto them the wing of humility through mercy and say: 'My Lord, Have mercy on them both as they did care for me when I say little.'" (17:24)

At the same time Allah wants from the believers not to boast, not to brag and not to be proud of themselves. They should not claim that they are pure, innocent and angelic. They should be humble enough to admit their shortcomings, their mistakes and their faults. They should share their ideas with others, be they young or older, and be they of a higher or of a lower academic position.
Allah hates all those who are proud, arrogant or boastful. In this regard Allah says about the proud people in Surah An-Nahl (The Bees):

"Your God is One God. But as for those who believe not in the Hereafter, their hearts refuse to know, for they are proud. Assuredly, Allah knows that which they keep hidden and that which they proclaim. Lo! He loves not the proud." (16:22-23)

Also, it is mentioned in Surah Luqman that Muslims should treat one another with humility and not with scorn or pride. In this regard Allah says:

"Turn not thy cheek in scorn toward folk, nor walk with perness in the land. Lo! Allah loves not each braggart boaster." (31:18)

Allah those who are proud of themselves because of what they are and of their personal achievements, negating Allah's blessing and mercy, will receive the curse and the punishment of Allah in this world.
The best example for the curse of Allah is that of Iblis who refused to prostate to Allah in front of Adam. He refused the order of Allah because he felt that he was better than Adam. He received the curse of Allah till the Day of Judgment. In this regard Allah says in Surah Sad:

"The angels fell down prostrate everyone, save Iblis; he was scornful and became one of the disbelievers. He said: 'O Iblis! What hinder you from falling prostrate before that which I have created with both my hands? Were you proud or were you of the high exalted? He said: I am better than him. You created me of fire, while him you did create of clay. He said: Go forth from here, for lo! You were outcast. And lo! My curse is on you till the Day of Judgment.'" (38:73-78)

The proud people will go to hell in the Day of Judgment and will never enter paradise till the camel enter the eye of a needle. In this regard, Allah says in Surah Al-A'raf (The Heights):

"Lo! They who deny Our revelations and scorn them, for them the gates of heaven will not be opened nor will they enter the garden until the camel goes through the needle's eye. Thus do We requite the guilty." (7:40)

On the other hand, paradise is reserved for those who are humble. In this regard Allah says in Surah Al-Qasas (The Narration):

"As for that Abode of the Hereafter, We assign it unto those who seek not oppression in the earth, nor yet corruption. The sequel is for those who ward off (evil)." (28:83)

Remember how Allah punished all the previous nations in the history of mankind. Remember the people of Hud, Salih, 'Ad, Lut, Remember the dynasty of the Pharaos. Remember as well Qaroon. All of these and others have been penalized by Allah Ta'ala. For this reason, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) advised us to be humble in every aspect of our life. The following are a few of his advises.
1. It has been narrated by Abu Hurairah that the Prophet (pbuh) said:
A charity does not decrease any wealth. Allah increases the respect of any who forgives and whoever is humble for the love of Allah. Allah will raise his rank.(Reported by Muslim)
2. It was narrated by ‘Iyad that the Prophet (pbuh) said:
Allah revealed to me (Muhammad) that you should be humble so that no one will boast over others, and no one will transgress over others. (Reported by Muslim)
3. It was narrated by Abdullah ibn Masood that the Prophet (pbuh) said:
No one will enter paradise if he/she has an atom’s weight of pride.
4. It was narrated by Abu Hurairah that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said:
Allah does not speak to three categories of people in the Day of Judgment; does not purify them and does not look at them. They will have a very severe penalty. They are: an elderly person who commits adultery; a king who is a liar; and a person who is proud and arrogant. (Reported by Muslim)
From what has been reported to you in this talk, may I request you kindly to be humble, modest, meek, simple and low in every aspect of your life. Remember that Allah hates those who are proud, aggressive, high, conceited and arrogant. May I request you to be kind to other people, to extend your personal help, your personal services and your personal time, effort, knowledge, and money to all those people tremendously. Remember that Allah will make your life a happy one, and that you will go to paradise in the Hereafter.

Is this not PHD syndrome too? Dakay practice what you preach; stop this poetry stuff.

Instead of commending EBK for his superstatesmanship which is an unprecedented phenomenon in Salone, you are busy making funny interpretations. Man this is something you will not like to hear or read about but EBK is making history by easily becoming the best leader modern Salone has ever had.Even late Sir Milton will be tossing and turning in his grave with envy while being happy that at least there is someone who is taking his legacy to a higher level than he never thought of.

The post you are making all the noise about was not made about you. All the same, our man , Kabs Kanu, cognisant of the rule, deleted the post immediately he saw it and sought to ban Sadam Insane. It is a lie that Kabs did not remove it for 24 hours. Kabs does not waste time with these posts as we all have been seeing.He even made a strong warning before Sadam's post. Sadam has been banned from this forum and will not participate here again..

You are just a bundle of trouble. You did not need to threaten Kabs Kanu. As somebody on your forum told you, your approach was rather rude and confrontational.

Besides, please note this. You are not the administrator of that forum. Our sister is, not you. And you are not our sister's keeper either. She can fight her own battles. She does not need you .So stop hinding behind her apron strings to show the evil in your heart for Kabs Kanu. She does not need you .Go find another job and leave us in peace.

If you are talking about violations, who has been violating that rule more than you ? You have been violating it from Day One, calling Kabs names, calling us names , threatening here, threatening there etc. ec. Even right now , there are posts on the forum by you and Dr.Curtis Thomas defaming Kabs that have been there on the forum for nearly two months without being deleted . There are also posts against members of this forum, like Allieu Iscandari and Colonel Idriss Kamara that have not been removed. So what are you talking about 24 hours ? Can you compare 24 hours to two months ?

You just like to see people at loggerheads. Since peace was restored between our two forums, you have not been at rest. You have been trying everything to plunge us into war and your posts are still on the forum as testimony to your wickedness. But we will straighten you up, Jalloh . Just keep making a fool of yourself. We will straighten you up.

This is true. The post was gone well before 24 hours had elapsed. I know this because I never got to see the original post that prompted such a vicious response on the other forum (I read both and am not from SL). I saw the accusation of breaking the agreement and the bitter invective elsewhere first, then came straightaway to this forum to find the source of the problem; I looked for it in vain on Wednesday morning and it had already been deleted. Was disappointed that I never got to see what evoked such hateful and irrational hostility.

Aside from this, from a look at the constant postings elsewhere, it seems the guy has really gone over the deep end, he does not make rational sense and defies all rules of grammar and logic.

APC’s Radio Damage Control Drive..... Doing A Poor Job In Laundering Agriculture Minister’s Image
Posted by on Jun 12, 2008, 16:12



Journalists, media practitioners and public relation officers are always faced with the task of managing information for the good of the state, corporate bodies, institutions and individuals. Management in this dimension involves information that has direct or indirect relationships to individuals, institutions and corporate bodies. However, in the process of managing the bits and pieces of information that filter in or out of these institutions, several miscalculations take place which in the end has negative impact on the individuals or institutions on whose behalf the managers commonly referred to in the information industry as public relation officers are working.

Generally, and even professionally the responsibility of public relation officers is to manage and micromanaged information and makes it productive. This does not in any way mean that propaganda should be the weapon to change the perception of the viewers, readers or consumers of the information that is already in the public domain. Propaganda has a limit when used and when the public relation officers over used propaganda to solve the problem of information management, most times during the process it may boomerang. Too many use of propaganda sometimes produces negative results and once the result is negative it cannot be easily laundered for a change.

This brings to mind the latest propaganda machine put into operation two nights ago by the APC Target Radio in a bid to launder the image of the Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Sam Sesay. As it happens in every institution, efforts are always directed at the public to change their minds and views regarding an issue. But caution should be one of the guide principles when undertaking such public relation exercise. This is because several questions need to be properly answered when reacting or undertaking the job. Among the questions the public would want to know is why a publication(s) or broadcast statement(s) was made against the individual or the company.

Flimsy reasons or excuses are not treated rationally by the public who had already consumed the initial part of the information and may be waiting for more sweet or bitter pieces of the same information to consume. Propaganda as an immediate solution is not admissible so far the public is concerned. In the case of Dr. Sesay that the APC Target radio was bashing and lashing out at journalists, describing them as irresponsible and unprofessional; there was an element of truth that unconsciously came out by one of the members of the panel. That alone, has giving credence to the publication if any logical and critical assessment is made.

This was his appearance at the Tegloma dinner organized at Philadelphia Lancaster Hall. Did he attend the dinner? Of course he went their in the company of others and fully took part in the ceremony. If those who are in sympathy with the Russian Academic Doctor had denied that he never went there or took part in the dinner, there would have been substantial ground for argument. As indicated earlier, that caution in managing information should not be neglected nor ignored. Even if the publication was wrong, one good venture the “On Target APC Radio” has made clear was to confirm the fact that a dinner was organized on Dr. Sesay’s behalf at Philadelphia which he was invited to and took part in. This piece of information is very relevant to the discussion, to make and unmake him.

Another area not mentioned, that is not a secret to most people including this writer about Dr. Sesay is his good appetite for alcohol. It is not that he is an alcoholic, but he has appetite for it just like any good food. Konie Yabai a popular alcohol dealer around Public Works Department (PWD) Pademba Road can testify to the fact that Dr. Sesay has very good appetite for liquor such as beer, stout and even dry gin. Konie Yabai’s base at PWD is nothing strange to this Russian Academic Doctor. One could imagine the climatic condition of Russia where Dr. Sesay obtained his doctorate degree after graduating from the Milton Margai Teachers College by then, no second or third degree---direct to PHD. That was a brilliant effort eh? Coming back to the issue of information management, the target APC Radio failed to undertake any background check to know which food he likes best or dislikes and why he usually visits Konie Yabai’s base at PWD.

Problem normally associated with information management is sentiment which was clearly exhibited by the APC on Target Radio. Sentiment is not a requisite in management whether in administration or public relation, but facts and clarity. Even when confusing the minds of the consumers of information, facts must be used and not propaganda if not the exercise would be muddled and bundled.

Another area worth commenting on, perhaps that would serve as a pointer to the fact, was how Dr. Sesay arrived at the Lancaster Hall in Philadelphia and how he returned home after the dinner. This writer is simply asking about the mode or method of transportation that took him from where he was a guest to the party and brought him back.

Dr. Sesay traveled in a car driven by one of his friends whose name is Mohammed Conteh. The APC Radio had claimed that callers from the diaspora denied the publication saying that it was untrue. If we have been able to establish the fact that a dinner was convened at Philadelphia, let us try to establish the method of transportation that conveyed Dr. Sesay to and back.

The method we agreed was a private transport owned by his friend who drove him while he occupied the front seat by the driver. On their way coming from the dinner party, what happened? This is the most crucial part of the debate. Were they stopped (pull over) by police? This is where the work of the public relation officer is crucial. In America driving under the influence of alcohol is a serious offence. It is serious because both the life of the driver and others are at risk and it is the duty of the police to protect each and every individual on the soil of America.

About seven years back a foreign diplomat driving under the influence of alcohol killed an innocent young lady in the Washington District of Columbia. He was tried for the offence of Manslaughter and sentenced to prison; despite several pleas made on his behalf by his home country he suffered the consequences of his action. It tells the sane mind that in the United States of America the law is not a respecter of person but of legal principles. Also, it would be recalled that a Congress man driving in terrific speed violated the traffic light and hit a pedestrian was detained, tried and found guilty of traffic offences. He too was sent to jail despite being a congressman in South Dakota.

Although, the article did not say that Dr. Sesay was the driver, however it did state that he was occupying the front seat when his driver friend violated the traffic light and was pulled over by the police. The police on examination discovered that both of them were under the influence of alcohol. In this regard, the offence committed by Dr Sesay’s driver friend is graver than the Russian Academic Doctor who was not on the driver’s seat. In light of this, he was put on outside detention while his friend was detained and charged to court. Development about this matter will be published as it emerges for the public to know the truth.

In their desperation to crucify journalists, Haja Sarata and her colleagues claimed that the SLPP had raised $50,000. This money they claim is what is being used to pay journalists to discredit the APC party. The statement is not only unfortunate, but unsubstantiated and without merit and proof. What is $50,000 to some journalists and media houses? One would not be surprised over the utterances of a desperate symbol seeker who left the United States of America after wasting time. She claims to be a trained nurse while in America, if indeed it was true she can be useful in Sierra Leone if she makes her services available to our sick compatriots at the Connaught and Princess Maternity Hospitals.

Information management is an intellectual and academic programme not meant for drop-outs who find themselves occupying seats in a party radio station. During the discussion in defending Dr. Sesay somebody mentioned the element of justification in defamation without talking about the extent to which justification can be used to set a journalist free or finds him guilty. If according to the defenders of Dr. Sesay justification cannot save a journalist; what about the right of the public to know the truth about a government minister who enjoyed himself in a foreign land and found himself entangled with the law?

On the whole, the efforts to clean the minister did not pay his defenders any reasonable dividend; instead it has attracted more attention into the matter. The information, to say the truth has been mismanaged and not managed.

As far as I know and from very reliable diplomatic sources at the time, Karefa Smart won that elections. Jonah brought in the then U.S. Ambassador, John Hirsch and Peter Penfold to talk to Karefa Smart to accept the results because the 'western powers' wanted the 'khaki' boys to handover power. Indeed, James Jonah is not the type of people that we need in our country to conduct elections.

Turn $6 into $15,000 in only 30 days...here’s how! You have most likely seen or heard about this project on TV programs such as 20/20 and Oprah, or you may have read about it in the Wall Street Journal.

If not, here it is below - revealed to you in step-by-step detail.

This program is by no means new.

It has been in existence in many forms for at least a decade.

I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it:

Make Money with your PayPal account as shown on Oprah!

IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not illegal; and it is virtually no risk-it really works! If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive extraordinary dividends.

AGAIN, PLEASE NOTE: Follow these directions EXACTLY, and $20,000 or more can be yours in 4 to 6 weeks.

This program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants.

Please continue its success by carefully adhering to the instructions.

A FEW LEGAL TIPS: You are starting a Mailing List

File your responses alphabetically every day. If you have a computer, all the better, if not get one with your first mail responses.

You will soon compile an extensive mailing list. It can be very useful in your business, to start a new business, or for other businesses to acquire information from you.

When you send out these letters, you are in the mail order business. People are sending you $1.00 to be put on your mailing list. This is a legal helpful service. Once again see Title, section 1302 and 1341 of the US Postal and lottery laws.

Here are the 4 easy steps to success: STEP 1: Take a few minutes to join PayPal: Remember to verify your account. www.paypal.com

The Internet's most trusted Internet banking system for your future income.

When creating your PayPal account make email address you used for PayPal on the list below so people can send money to your account.

STEP 2: Once you have a PayPal account running, use PayPal to post $1 to EACH of the 6 Email Addresses below. Because you pay people with an email address in PayPal. Select "SEND MONEY".

To do this you may need to use a credit or debit card, which is very easy and secure so nobody but PayPal may see it.

What you are doing is creating a service. This is absolutely legal! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for it!

Here are the 6 individual Email addresses that you have to send $1 to through PayPal for this to work properly and for you to receive money.

(If you don't send the money and decide to post the message with your name in it anyway, PayPal will instantly pick this up and terminate your account, immediately, besides the other penalties!!)

If you did this you could get into serious trouble because it is fraud. (So follow the instructions and post the $6 and you will make lots of money with no hassles.)

Now Send $1.00 to each of the six people on the list using PayPal, and in the comment (Subject) section type "Please add me to your list". Below are the emails that you transfer the money into:

These email addresses are PayPal IDs or usernames. Send 1 Dollar to:

1.) marrrrio@blackplanet.com 2.) Hernandez_blas@yahoo.com 3.) tylersdad61907@yahoo.com 4.) fullylove@hotmail.co.uk 5.) sw33t-lil-bubbii@live.com.au 6.) realmoney08@hotmail.com

STEP 3: Now after sending $1.00 to each of the email placements above, take the #1 Email Address off the list, move the other Email Addresses up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc.Then add Your Email Address as number 6 on the list.

STEP 4: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close to the original as possible.

Now, post your amended article to at least 200 news groups (there are thousands of groups).

And email your message to as many people you can. Remember, the more you post and email the more money you make! This is perfectly legal!

You are getting paid for a service, the sender of the money asks you to 'Please add me to your list’. Therefore it is legal. Remember to send a dollar to the above names or this is considered illegal.

If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18 Sec. 1302 and 1241 of the Postal Lottery laws.

Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need money, you can use it again and again.

PLEASE REMEMBER

This program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants and by their carefully adhering to the directions.

You are simply paying into a money making chain of participants and if the chain is broken you are screwing someone else out of their fair share.

So, as each person who joins the family and the directions are followed, six members will be reimbursed for their participation as a Mailing List Developer with one dollar each.

You then insert your Email Address into the list and it will move up geometrically.

So that when your name reaches the #1 position you will have potentially received thousands of dollars into your account!!!

What an opportunity for only a total of $6.00! $1 for each of the first six people listed above.

To begin with, please send you're $1.00 to each email address listed above then add your own Email Address to the list and you're in business!

HOW TO POST TO NEWS GROUPS: Use the internet and searching for various news groups, ad posting websites, on-line forums, message boards, chat sites, discussions.

Log on any search engine like yahoo.com, google.com, altavista.com, excite.com, etc., then search with the subject "money making message board" or "classified ads"

You will find thousands and thousands of message boards and companies like Adblaster.com, InetGiant. com, LiveDeal.com, Adsubmitter.com etc

Click on them one by one and you will find the option ''post a new message''. Then Post this article as a ''new message'' by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting copy then paste from the edit menu.

You can also read other peoples ads for business opportunities and respond to their email address with this business opportunity.

You're done with your first one! It only takes about 60 seconds to complete postings on message boards after you catch on.

REMEMBER, THE MORE NEWS GROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL MAKE!!

But you have to post a minimum of 200!

How does it work? When you post 200 letters, it is estimated that at least 15 people will respond and send you $1 ($15). Those 15 will post 200 letters each and 225 will send $1 ($225). Those 225 will post 200 letters each and 3,375 people will send you $1 ($3,375). Those 3,375 people will post 200 letters each and 50,625 people will send you $1 (50,625). Those 50,625 will post 200 letters each and 749,375 people will send you $1 (749,375). At this point your name drops off the list, but so far, you have received $813,615.00.

That is it. You will begin receiving money in your account from around the world within days!

JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT.

A - M - A - Z - I - N - G - !! With an investment of only $6.00!!

When your name is no longer on the list, you just take the latest posting in the news groups, and send out another $6.00 to Email Addresses using PayPal on the list, putting your name at number 6 again. And just start posting again!

Copy and paste this letter to use for yourself.

However, despite the auditors’ endorsements, serious allegations have always abound that Wanza’s numerous claims, especially with regards to a Naval Patrol Boat he received 1.4 million pounds for and never supplied, were a result of dubious transactions that did not benefit the country but went into the pockets of corrupt politicians. Wanza, in his over one thousand paged submission to the Court, states otherwise and provides supporting evidence. The Sierra Leone Government issued a mere 28 paged response as their defence to Wanza’s claims. The matter now stands ready for judgment.

The SLPP administration of former President Kabbah did attempt at developing policies aimed at strengthening institutional capacity in support of the rule of law and economic management, and to ensure simultaneously that transparency and accountability were finally established. ...The SLPP administration’s efforts notwithstanding, most corrupt public officials and private sector operators had gone unpunished, and many others deserved to be. With no mandate to assertively pursue corrupt public officials and private sector operators, the Anti-Corruption Act has since become a stain on the previous administration’s reputation and has come to symbolize the Kabbah administration’s sustained effort to condone corruption. Now with the new APC administration, President Koroma appears to be determined to support the ACC’s action to aggressively pursue corrupt officials and private sector operators. There are a good number of hard core SLPP ministers and heads of government departments and parastatals allegedly suspected of corruption crimes. The Confidential Presidential Audit commissioned by newly elected President Koroma in November 2007, could be good starting point. Widespread corruption and mismanagement were revealed in that confidential presidential audit. “[The report] catalogued grave inadequacies in key areas such as health care, tax collection and the security services. And it provided a unique and searingly frank insight into [government corruption. One arm of government, for example, is alleged to have lent more than $1m (£480,000) to an unspecified recipient in the few months before the recent handover of power. At one ministry, the report seen by the BBC says, a project worth almost $500,000 was apparently financed by an international donor - but the money never reached the intended recipients”.

Any time something noteworthy about the SLPP is reported, the source is the octogenarian Puawuui himself, Dr Sama Banya. I must say that Dr Banya is slowly and grudgingly earning my respect for his dogged determination to keep SLPP relevant, even when I disagree with some of his pronouncements.
The truth is that we need a viable opposition in Sierra Leone. A rudderless, weak SLPP will be an unmitigated disaster for all Sierra Leoneans, even for those of us who supported the APC in the last elections. In this regard, I am urging the SLPP to start shining the limelight on potential leaders of the party. Remember, most diasporans are sophisticated voters (I hope) who would vote for personalities who click, rather than an amorphous entity called the party.
So is the next SLPP flagbearer for 2012 going to be:

Dr Sama Banya
John Karimu
John Benjamin
Momodu Koroma
Kanja Sesay
Dr Edmond Koker
Dr John Mannah
Alpha Saidu Bangura
J.B Dauda, etc,etc..

Fen Plaba, we are in a civilized World; let us allow Free Speech to operate. Do not listen to them there will be no problems. If they write, do not read it. That will minimize the headache. It seems as if people these days like to make issues their problem that should never be a problem in the first place or make me wink: too much time on their hands I guess.
Do you read books, Novels, Magazines, Newspapers? Try reading Cardiovascular System and tell me about it. Read the Constitution of Sierra Leone and America to see how much words are said there. There are about six billion peoples in the world. You will definitely find one that shares similar interests with you if there is none, then something great is happening therefore, keep the faith and wait for the time they will reveal themselves. No man is an island. That has been the truth since Adam was a boy. God created Eve because he realized that no man should be an island. Keep your eyes on the price and be watchful for the changes that happen each day you walk, drive or attend gatherings. That is an intelligent person observes development. Leone Stars will win.
Are Sierra Leonean games televised? Sometime in 1999 I read that an American company was installing satellite there. I wonder why? Do you know how satellite works?
Let us civil.
Listen to this and ask yourself have I participated? Participate:

Ladies and gentlemen, please permit me to report that I just received my transcr1pt for the first module at school and I scored a 93.40 G.P.A. Is that a 4.0 average, you do the math. I do not take this as something to count on because people these days can go at any length to try to dirt another person, especially when esteem is in question. All I can do is pray and make efforts because that is what critical thinkers will judge me by when HISTORY is written: the reasoning behind all the trials and triumphs. That is how HISTORY has ever judged mankind since the pre-Historic times to the moment, and in my case, the Historians all over the world are keenly watching. They will not let the field of History go to dirt for insignificant reasons. The truth will be written and rewritten.
One question I have for all who read this is: What would loose or gain personally should I succeed, fail die or live?
Please think critically and answer to yourself. If you answer to yourself: nothing! then what are the reasons for the sadness created in you if any and why the crude efforts to deter?
This is the Twenty-first (21st.) let us behave as civilized people.

Response dated: “June 11, 2008 at 23:10:13:”
Man Pekin, Mr. Fenthi and Mr. Alie Formeh Kamara, let me thank you for your responses and remind you that to have been able to share ideas in a timely fashion as we are currently doing, with the freedom to do it is remarkable and could have never been achieved many years back and is still imperceivable for many people’s in different parts of the world today, thanks to Free Speech or the lack of it.
To respond to your concern, where you stated: “. My question is why Prezo EBK and not the Minister of Information or his Deputy.” I would say that such a decision has more to do with diplomatic and parastatal reasons. It is a manifestation of the President’s commitment to promoting Free Speech by giving weight, by gracing the occasion especially when he is invited by the opposition.
With regards to your observation in the ensuing statement, where you stated: “Indeed, Prezo Koroma should be careful.” Let me remind you of a passage in one of Shakespeare’s literary work, where it is stated: “a coward dies many a time before their actual death; the valiant never taste of death but once.” What can we deduce from this statement is that many a time people become paranoiac, paralalizing them from doing what is right because doing good had caused sadness for other people. Indeed, President Momoh was a fine gentleman, a misunderstood leader whose service could have helped Sierra Leone, whose mistakes President Koroma must have learned from.
We could have had various views, as apparent in this discuss, some of which could have been vastly misconstrued ideas, others sheer propaganda or simple lack of touch with facts or concepts because of the lack of a medium of communication to relay our views. We could have been left in a complete darkness denying us the chance to broaden our horizon in that, fear or ignorance of what goes on in Sierra Leone and the world could have only trimmed us to educated buffoons who because of this darkness are enshrined in the limbo of wrong doing, unashamed of the embarrassment words and actions say of us to those who actually know. This is why free speech and involving in the exercise
there-of, is essential for every human being. What has been achieved here is render us the opportunity to rethink our views because we have other information and outlets that we can employ and consume to enable us have a baseline to compare with. Misconceptions can then be rechecked in this process. Formidable ideas can be shared that might result in creativity and concomitantly, national and global development. This is why Free Speech and forums like this, and the establishment of the Unity Radio therefore, if utilized responsibly, is essential for the promotion of a nation’s information-base (knowledge-base) and development. A great philosopher once said, that one who holds the freedom of speech of others or shy-away from knowledge has imprisoned his mind and closed the door to self-development and that of those denied the freedom to express themselves. Therefore, we should look at President Koroma’s move as an attempt to opening a gate to more freedom if the radio station is used responsibly with the interest of the nation at heart and not used for propaganda because the implementation of reckless journalistic exercise would serve more harm than good for our nation as it did for Rwanda, where it created a divide that the International Community is not impressed with, in that, it caused millions of lives rather bring progress to the country. Which leaves me no room but to agree with Mr. Alie Formeh Kamara who stated that, “EBK will be judged by what he does to promote the welfare of Sierra Leoneans and not what he did to crush the opposition.” In retrospect, I hope the opposition recognizes the same that they will be judged by what they do with this radio in promoting the welfare of Sierra Leoneans rather than allow it to create a divide in a verge to crush the sitting government. Realizing that Civilization could have never been achieved had the civilized prided themselves on the number of people they were/are capable of crushing. Rather, they pride themselves on how their individual and collective collaboration has helped create avenues, that in turn, has helped or will help free-thinking to empower the people and enhance creativity.
The President and his government, and meaningful Sierra Leoneans see it fit that the status quo be changed. Which brings me to cautiously agree with Mr. Fenthi when he stated: “To open up to the oposition, and for that matter to every Sierra Leonean is a fine idea, but believe you me the realities of contemporary politics in sierra Leone, especially when it comes to the SLPP, speak a diffierent language.” My only admonition is to encourage Sierra Leoneans that we must engage in changing such ingrained idea of the contemporary politics by encouraging and applauding what is formidable for national interest in a verge to changing the status quo and usher-in development for all.
In closing, let me state that President Koroma’s move to gracing this occasion is about change towards a formidable democracy, it manifests his dedication to democracy, free speech in particular and for national unity, which God knows, we need dearly, a lesson the S.L.P.P., other parties and all Sierra Leoneans must learn from. Besides, it moves us closer to the qualities requested of us by the International Community for good governance to qualify us or strengthen the belief that our debts must be pardoned because we are ready for a formidable and appreciable democracy. So we must applaud his move to grace this occasion that members of the International Diplomatic Corp and other members of the International Community will also be in attendance.

Mohamed, please, be informed that Dr. Kabia will never be interested in visiting Makeni hospital to ensure that he improves it conditions. Instead, he will travel to the USA and receive per DIEM ( the tax payers money in dollars) because that is part of the pres. Koroma's agenda to bring hardship on our people.
Dr. Soccoh Kabia has been away from Sierra Leone for above 35 years, lost complete contact with the people and was appointed a minister of government only because he spent a huge amount of money in the last elections. I am sure that tells you a lot.

What is US$200million? when governments in other countries boast of billions of Dollars. The truth of the matter is, the SLPP government may have left this amount but they've also left debts of Le350billion and other undisclosed debts and no finished projects so what is there to be boastful of? no wonder EBK said the economy was nothing to write home about.

The SLPP government was the highest recepient of foreign aids a wooping US$1.7billion. This amount cannot be translated to the pathetic US$200million they claimed to have left minus US$117million debt owed to Mohamed Wanza the rest the US$1.7billion is unaccounted for.

Many of these SLPP supporters continue to defend their party's misrable failure by claiming they secured funds for unfinished projects. Now the APC government is left to pick up the pieces, first of all, they have to secure an out of court settlement with Mr Wanza to resolve the Le350billion saga something the previous government should have done. Now they're ready again to be voted to power so that they can continue to deceive our people, but once more they'll be shown the exit by the people.

Eddy my friend, this is a perfect smoke screen for the APC to do what they do best - "wu sai den tie cow"...

I even heard GoSL owes Old Man Zubah a whopping Le7.5 Million (miscellaneous advertisement is the budget line). I just hope they don't get so silly and pay Late Jamil Sahid. Eddy boy nar for make yu yone receipt oooh! Bonthe Pikin, Sadman, Orh Lawyer,Pedro, Doris Shyllon, et al... Santa arrived too early this year... well before Xmas. Get busy fellahs, find a print house, make some phoney receipts, go home and make some easy money.

This cheap scam has now become official GoSL policy with APC stalwarts being sole beneficiaries. Here is a draft GoSL domestic debt policy by APC Central Committee:

1. Conjure up some backdated receipts
2. Show your APC party card and name one APC agba and one MOBA strongman as referees
3. Grease Victor Foh's palm with some 'Kola'
4. Go home, take a nap and wait for your cheque

Note:
All successful claimants must pay administrative charges (35% of total claim) to the Party HQ @ Marine House.

After thoughts
How can Wanza wait 15 years for cam call debt gofment now? makes sense to you Eddy? Boh du yah go make yu yone receipt yah. Jus memba 4 follow the slated procedure.

This is the most corrupt gofment of all times! But Insha Allah ... as my uncle margai swore in Kailahun.

The problem is that the govts. in Salone don't take court cases aginst the country seriously until it is too late. This Wanza case is no exception. It is very likely that the bulk of Wanza's claim is interest and "losses." That gives the govt. some leeway to reduce the claim. The govt. could also question the components of the underlying debt to check if any of it had been paid. Also if some of it is kosher.

It is my understanding that it has pleased the president HE Dr. Ernest OhBai Koroma to officially begin the APC'S campaign for the up coming towns and districts council elections.
I hope and pray that Pres. Koroma will be nice enough to campaign on the following platform:
(1) PROPAGATING TRIBALISM ( something he told the TRC in 2003, that was a destructive weapon to progress in the country). " BY NORTHERNRACING" the country.
(2) Appointing his personal friends with BAD PUBLIC RECORDS to sensitive positions, so that they can make a lot of money for the APC to enchant its self in Sierra Leone at the detriment of the country. That is why APC members are now saying "they will be in power for the next 40years at all cost".
(3) Wasting public funds on JOY RIDES(so that him and his ministers can have per Diem to siphon into private bank accounts) , at a time our country is going through difficult economic times.
(4) Having a Freetown City Council that is very Inefficient ONLY because it is made up of a large number of APC members who do not know what they are doing.
I am sure that if pres. Koroma comes out clean with THE people, the APC will not be successful in the Local government elections. Mr. President, your APC can not HIDE nor RUN from its BAD RECORD.
Our country needs a president that will be UP FRONT and sincere with our people.

Sara Pekin,
How can Alpha Saidu run for Secretary General of SLPP? Where is he going to run? Here or Sierra Leone? Recently a fundraising venture was organised for one SLPP member Mr Matthew Margao,who is contesting in Bo. Very few people showed up to support their party member.
I was even expecting Saidu to attend but he did not show up. We pretend to belong to political parties but never give support to people who brave it out for the party.
Nobody will vote for Saidu because he is only interested in receiving and do not make sacrifices.
I want to also take this opportunity to thank those who made it at the cookout and those who could not make it but sent their contribution.It was a success.
Politics is about support and establishing strong ties.
Who knows? It might be me or you someday.

They will be coming again with their 'sugar coated' words, making promises that they know they will never fulfill. Sierra Leone is not a 'dumping ground' where any Jack and Jim will go to contest any elections. My advise to the youths is to assess these candidates properly by asking them what they have done for their respective wards that they wanted to represent. Gone are the days when they will give the youths drugs, alcohol, food to vote for them. We should say a big NO to such politicians.

Please understand that the current static is not a war with our sister forum across the Blue Nile. All some of us are doing is fumigate the place of a particularly nasty rodent who has been playing with fire for quite some time now. We are tired of being called sleazeballs, oddballs, ill-mannered bumpkins and uneducated 'maroons' and 'one-soupers' by some one who has had sexual harassment charges lodged against him. Our fight is not with the wonderful and respected proprietress of the OTHER FORUM. It is definitely not against the other wonderful forumites of the other forum. We really have no ax to grind with those fellas, who wre just fellow sojorners in the diaspora.

Our FIGHT IS WITH the ill-bred sadist, skunklaw@yahoo.com who has insulted, cussed and harassed people, here and in Sierra Leone, repeatedly, without comma or full stop. This educated idiot, with his unmitigated phoniness, needs to know that he is not the only director of foul language. We will meet him anywhere, any place, in the gutter where he resides, or in the citadels, if he could grow wings. We are tired of his tribe baiting and deep animus against the Krios. It's gonna be a Slapathon guys. Jalloh needs to stop writing his poison. Enough is enough!

For those who will soon complain about this necessary action as low brow, please visit the other forum and see the hogwash egested by the SKUNK as he soils himself in public; the public unravelling of an otherwise brilliant mind gone nuts.

There is no interforum fight here. This is just the sanitation crew taking the junk of Chernor's vulgarities and force-feeding it back to him. It's like sausage-making: Crappy to watch but tasty to eat. We will silence the rants of the foolish skunk by stepping up to him, for it is the only way to smack a bully. We await more bulletins from Washington on THE SKUNK. Sidon look!

1) How to educated the poor in our society on thier civil rights and how they should not allow government to take advantage..

2) How do we get the freedom of information act passed before Ernests First term is done.

3) How do we make conditions of service better for diaspora Nurses and Doctors even with our limited resource (LIKE we give you 40 acres and a mule is you go home and take BO hospital for 5 years) to come back home and give our people some of that medical skill they learned.. (we only have 78 doctors for 5 MILLION PEOPLE). GOD HELP US Tsunami nor hit..

HOW TO PRESSURE the government so they take decentralization seriously and stop dragging thier feet because they are scared of decentralized power and power back to the people.

A coward is one who, in a perilous emergency, thinks with his legs. When the Umpire jerk was kicked out of the Cocorioko, he retreated with his Kroo-bombor between his Carangba legs, and it took him a month or so before he was courageous enough to come out of hisa cave.

If he were not the coward he is, he would have brought the fight to the land intellectual hulks like Mensa, Mendekunda the warrior, Fen Plaba, and others whose names I cannot recall, call home.

The fact that he goes to the house next door to throw missiles is itself an act of cowardice. Umpire's modus operandi replicates the behavior of Okuru dogs back in Freetown.

"Broke Ose to preserve trees"...what are they thinking? Oh, I got it...people can start living on trees, is that what you are saying. But let's get serious here... first, let these APC "forest reserves experts" provide us with a status report on the reserves we already have (Kangari Hills and Tama-Tonkolili Reserves, Mamunta Mayoso Wildlife Sanctuary, among others - http://www.visitsierraleone.org/kangari-hills.asp). Are these reserves and sanctuaries properly and efficiently maintained? If these APC "wise guys" have a plan to "plan" our capital city and its "trees", come on, let them start building low income apartments for people first. A hint, the sky provides ample space to accommodate many apartments in blocks using small pieces of land to which people living in the bays, valleys, and hills can be relocated to. Further, constructing our inner city roads... not just covering pot holes with dirt is another way of "planning" the city. since the British left no major inner city roads construction (http://www.sierraleonedigest.org/road-tax-needed.htm) has been undertaken. Me thinks, our politicians and so called policy experts should start working for their people. our people are hungry, living in shacks and slums, yet this Benjamin Davies guy is threatening our hungry and homeless people "to use what he referred to as military modalities" to demolish their already "inadequate" living quarters to "preserve" trees. Foolish! Even though trees are living things, our people are more "living things" than trees. Let’s keep the trees and the wild life at Kangari Hills, Tama-Tonkolili Reserves, and the Mamunta Mayoso Wildlife Sanctuary. Folks, we must support our Prof. Peters for Mayor of Freetown. He has a plan. Capt. Davies does not have one. He can go back to barracks. Who knows, he can become Sierra Leone’s second brigadier general. Oh, but coup d’états are illegal now. Well, he can still be a good soldier!

If indeed you are, you need to recall that sometime back this govt. after assuming office put what I can call a temporary halt to tree-falling in a bid to review consequences and agreements.I believe the last thing our conservationists as well as environmentalists will want to see is deforestation.
Again if you can recall, the govt. has launched several housing schemes for low income earners that will benefit all the four divisions.
I want you to take a hard look at the living conditions of the people you are now defending and the manner in which they acquired the lands on which they have constructed the houses in which they are now living.I can understand very well that your thread has been influenced by sympathy but don't just be one-sided.Don't allow your emotions to control you. As a govt. it is their duty to sometimes enforce rules where and when necessary for the betterment of the citizens.If we keep on developing soft corners for such activities by people who think they are poor and so should forcefully inhabit a place they should not according to law,what will happen if all the poor decide to do the same thing? There is enough land in the villages why not tell them to go there rather than dissing the govt. for something that is expected of them by law?

At least you should commend the govt's balancing act of evicting trespassers and launching low income earners' housing schemes.
Let me tell you a big secret: most of these houses in these forest areas or other state lands are owned by some top politicians and civil servants;the tenants are just care takers brought from the provinces.And I tell you, that is the first step to land grabbing!Later let us say after five or six years the grabbers will produce after bribing their way through at the Lands ministry a big plan claiming to own several acres of land within the vicinity of their houses!
We have to stop these dirty tricks by the politicians and civil servants. It is about time!

smart cavalier, i agree with you in many respects. it's clear that people (land grabbers) and the lands ministry have been up to many dirty tricks that need to be checked. i do not wish to challenge that fact. but the point i am making here is that more needs to be done by the government in terms of improving the housing inadequacy in the city. i see the effort being made by government to build new low cost houses but the process has been painfully slow and the number of houses being built is not too impressive. if nassit can employ the thousands of youth running around town to help build these houses it should not take too long to build blocks of 300 apartments in a year. nassit i believe has the money. the international community has been very generous to sierra leone. so that money can be used to employ the labor and procure materials to build many apartments at a time. again, you just cannot ask people to go to the rural areas when there is nothing in these rural areas to get them there. no jobs. and please do not tell me these people can make farms because they need to have the farm tools, seeds and fertilizers for them to engage in any form of farming. so there is a great burden of responsibility our government has and to be implementing not just talk. many studies have been done by government after government and tejan kabbah's slpp government could even pride itself to have done extensive studies on the many sectors of our economy. so the apc can just take those studies the slpp has done and get going with the implementation phases of these studies. people are hungry. their housing is inadequate. there are no jobs even when there is a great deal of reconstruction still to be done in the country. look at our roads, they are the worst in west africa. our youth are willing to work. to undertake hard labor work once they get paid. if only our politicians start thinking about the country first than building all these majestic mansions for themselves we can move sierra leone to a state where all of us can help repair the country. so long for the political rhetoric. and so long for cosmetic development. sierra leoneans want to see real development. construction. costruction. construction. we have a great deal of construction to do in that country. the laws of the land can be respected provided the leaders have open minds to invest the country's resources in real development construction projects which can involve thousands of youth and able bodied men to work to build sierra leone. i am sure when people are provided with adequate and sanitary housing there will be no need to grab land to build the kind of shacks we see all around freetown. who wants to live like people living in the bay area among pigs and periodic floods from heavy down poors, for god sake? no body wants to live like that. who wants to live in valleys and in almost inaccessible hills? nobody wants to live like that. people do not have any alternatives. so they make do what is available to have a pan over their head. i hope koroma and his team can now accelerate the nassit program to dish out more homes in a year than the chameleon strides that the program has been taking. or may be, just may be, the nassit directors do not want to accelerate the program, that way they could just be pilfering the funds in the coffers of nassit for our national housing scheme. so long for the political rhetoric. get your government to work. and it must deliver within short time frames.

I am not impressed at all. Planting few trees here and there is a "cosmetic" development approach that is not impacting our development agenda in any shape or form. Major institutions like the Standard Bank should be investing in "real" development projects that would impact real lives…. Let me give them a development hint, they can adopt for instance a road... and pay the costs of constructing a road, and that should not be filling pot holes with dirt but literally constructing the road. Leicester Road, for instance, is a major road in a state of total disrepair that needs a well meaning institution to undertake a project such as that to construct it. Leicester road is a major access road used by thousands of residents at Leicester, Gloucester, and Leicester road inhabitants. the road could also be used as an exit route going to Fourah bay college or even going through the peninsular road to the provinces. So I am definitely not impressed by standard bank planting a few trees and think they have impacted development. Standard bank could do better than that. And other institutions especially the big mining corporations benefiting from our natural reserves could do same. it's high time for profit institutions in the country get involved in real development projects not just cosmetic development projects like tree planting and make a whole noise about that in the media.

This Chernor Jalloh jackass is the reason why some of us are afraid of sending our daughters to college. The kids go there to study only to be harassed and ogled by lecherous old philosophy professors high on Viagra. Howard took a good look at D. Chernor Jalloh and said "We are not touching this thing". The University was so turned off by what they saw that they put out fliers to kick the philosophy nutjob out of the classroom, out of campus, far, far away from decent civilization.

I cry for the professor. Instead of molding young minds, he now curls himself in a fetal position, sucking his thumb, sipping his cheap beer laced with Viagra as he thinks hornily of those young students in his class who had rejected and complained about his lecherous advances. Now this worshiper of fruity philosophers scratches his bony legs and, in frustration, screams invectives and cusses at his superiors over here in the Forum of Patriots, and threatens legal action. Hahahahaha! A professor and a hobo. Hahahaha! Go sidon yanda nonsense man.

WASHINGTON CITY NEWSPAPER REPORTS :

Howard University has an old-school way of banishing undesirables.
By Rion A. Scott
Feb. 1 - 7, 2002 (Vol. 22, #5)

Howard University has an old-school way of banishing undesirables.


Philosophy Professor D. Chernor Jalloh first antagonized his superiors at Howard University in 1999, when he gave failing grades to several students in his Principles of Reasoning class. After tussling with administrators and parents of the failing students, Jalloh says, the university changed the grades without his consent. Howard spokesperson Donna Brock declined to comment on the allegation.

Then, in 2000, Jalloh drew sexual-harassment charges based on complaints filed by students in the same class. Jalloh, a 17-year tenured veteran of the Howard faculty, refused to respond to the charges. In August 2000, Howard suspended Jalloh with pay from his job and later that year informed him that he would be fired.

But keeping Jalloh out of the classroom wasn't good enough for the university. It wanted him off campus property altogether. To this end, it posted a flier around campus:

al3rt BULLETIN Dr. Chernor Jalloh, Associate Professor in the University's Department of Philosophy College of Arts and Science, is barred from all Howard University owned properties and facilities. He is not permitted entry at any Howard University sponsored activities or events. The only circumstance under which he may enter Howard University owned or operated properties or facilities, is when he is accompanied by a member of the Howard University Campus Police.

The fliers offered no reason for Jalloh's banishment. Nor did they issue any instructions to students and faculty on how to handle a Jalloh sighting.

Howard officials prefer not to comment on their approach to keeping undesirables off campus. Former Philosophy Department Chair Segun Gbadegesin is currently on sabbatical, and calls to Dean of the School of Arts and Science James Donaldson were referred to Brock.

"That matter is pending litigation. There is no comment," says Brock, citing a defamation suit filed by Jalloh in October 2001.

In court documents, Howard claims the bulletin is protected by the school's "qualified privilege."

When the al3rt was first displayed on campus is a matter of dispute. In court documents, Jalloh says the al3rt was published in December 2000. Howard responded that the al3rt was not put up at that time, but the school offered no alternative date for the first posting.

The al3rts were posted again at the beginning of the fall 2001 semester, and some still linger on campus, including one beneath the glass at the front desk of the university's Moorland-Spingarn Research Center.

Richard Wright, chair of the Faculty Senate, an independent body of professors that serves as a go-between for the faculty and the administration, says Howard failed to make its case against the professor. "Why should you be given an al3rt without understanding as to why the al3rt is put out?" Wright says. "The next question is: What are we supposed to do?"

In a Jan. 28 statement, the university's Faculty Grievance Commission wrote, "[I]t is distasteful, disgraceful, and utter slander" that Jalloh "would be posted like a common criminal 'dead or alive' on the campus. It is vaguely reminiscent of the types of pictures posted during times of slavery, when a runaway slave...was being sough [sic] for lynching."

Jalloh's version of the story goes like this: In the fall 1999 semester, six students in his Principles of Reasoning class didn't measure up to his standards, so he assigned them failing grades. A few months later, the professor discovered that at least one parent had been upset by his child's failing grade. Jalloh was called into a meeting with Gbadegesin and Donaldson. Jalloh refused to budge on the F.

Jalloh says the meeting made him suspicious, so he checked with the registrar's office, where he discovered that several failing grades that he'd given had been changed to passing ones without his knowledge. Jalloh demanded that the administrators change the grades back, but they refused.

In March 2000, the university informed Jalloh that he was being investigated for sexual harassment, on the basis of complaints filed by students in the same Principles of Reasoning class. Sharon Banks, an attorney employed by Howard University's Office of the General Counsel, asked Jalloh to respond to the charges. He refused, arguing that the proper jurisdiction for such cases is the Faculty Grievance Commission--the university's internal mechanism for resolving conflicts between the faculty and the administration.

The university refuses to comment on the sexual-harassment charges.

Jalloh insists that the sexual-harassment charge stems from a university attempt to punish him for the alleged grade-changing issue.

And in court documents, the professor argues that the "gender discrimination and sexual harassment [charge is] based on alleged generalized philosophico-social statements [made in class and] clearly covered, because of their generalized determination, by the doctrine of academic freedom."

At the root of the harassment charge may be Jalloh's admittedly unorthodox teaching style. Jason Maddox, a philosophy senior, recalls that discussions in his fall 1999 Philosophy of Law class routinely began with law but often ventured into tangents. Maddox cites an exam that featured a question about a man's dog biting off another man's penis as an example. Jalloh says one offended student refused to take the test without alteration to the text. The professor says he changed the question, with reservations, and allowed the student to take the exam.

"It was the sickest piece of reading material I've ever read," Maddox says. "There wasn't a sentence that went by that didn't refer to weird sexual mutilation." Maddox says the wild scenario did challenge him to cut through its inherent craziness to extract the law.

Jalloh is confident that he will win his defamation suit against the university and that he will teach at Howard again. The Faculty Grievance Commission appears to agree, noting that "violations of academic freedoms and due process has [sic] occurred against Dr. Jalloh."

"All this shit happened because I discovered the grade change," he says. "The specific goal of the university is to cover up a grade change. What I do know is that I caught them red-handed." CP

A coward is one who, in a perilous emergency, thinks with his legs. When the Umpire jerk was kicked out of the Cocorioko Forum, he retreated with his Kroo-bombor between his Carangba legs, and it took him a month or so before he was man enough to come out of his cave.

If he were not the coward he is, he would have brought the fight to the land intellectual hulks like Mensa, Mendekunda the warrior, Fen Plaba, and others whose names I cannot recall, call home.

The fact that he goes to the house next door to throw missiles is itself an act of cowardice. Umpire's modus operandi replicates the behavior of Okuru dogs back in Freetown.

In the light of this, I call on co-forumites to ignore
whatever rantings he may be vomitting elsewhere. We'll keep his "ratlan" soaked in the still and deep waters of the Cocorioko River until Umpire has the cojonudos to show his ugly head here. Nar ihn dat.

It is very obvious that Umpire emerged from a very low, uncontrolled, unsupervised, multiple wife, with countless children setting, where he must have been the least in terms of expectation, amongst his father's bush clan. He probably ran around with the same pair of greasy pants with no shirt on from age 5 till 7 or 8, snacking off garbage cans (krio man dutty box) with his half brothers and sisters, and luckily survived all the juju attempts at his life by his numerous step mothers who would rather have him dead. In elementary school uncooked elements like him were the one's who recited "Thank you for the basta tin" rather than "Thank you for the birds that sing", during after school prayers because that was the vocabulary that was inherent in his every day up bring. Atortor pikin.
Through the blessings of some creole people, his ignorant ass landed at the Prince of Wales school, where his rough edges were chisseled. Today, he has been banished from his ersthwhile air conditioned cotton plantation, and sits face to face with misery, and the devil in the pipe, doomed to destruction. He is such an ungrateful and unthankful idiot, comparable to a mistaking soul that had dreamt of heaven. He would have still been placing traps in the ground to hunt bush meat, chasing cattle over hundreds of miles each day, hadn't it been for the creoles. You ain't seen nothing yet.

Uganda 'happy' about food crisis

Because they can't sell them, 40% of Ugandan bananas rot

The president of Uganda says he is "very happy" about the food crisis.

"Why? Because we produce a lot of food... We are stuck with food," President Yoweri Museveni told Commonwealth heads of government.

The president hopes the food crisis will prompt the removal of trade barriers, allowing countries like Uganda to profit from food surpluses.

A BBC correspondent says most benefits are going to large, commercial farms, while poor Ugandans are suffering.

The BBC's Sarah Grainger in Uganda says most of the population are subsistence farmers, who do not export their crops but are affected by the rising cost of fuel and other inputs.


I think out of all these hiccups we may get a more rationalised interaction... by removing trade barriers, by removing subsidies

President Museveni


Fruit could curb Ugandan poverty

But overall food production has risen in recent years.

Uganda's growth rate is expected to reach 8.9% later on this year, up from 6.5% last year, partly due to debt relief.

"Our problem has been marketing... We produce 10 million metric tonnes of bananas and 40% of it rots because we have nowhere to sell it," President Museveni told delegates.

President Museveni said milk production had risen so rapidly, it had been poured away.

That was until Uganda set up a recent agreement with an Indian processor plant: excess milk is now being shipped to India.

And he thinks Uganda can continue turning the food crisis to its advantage:

"I think out of all these hiccups we may get a more rationalised interaction in terms of the use of our resources, through trade, by removing trade barriers, by removing subsidies," he said.

As an avid football fan, and a proud Sierra Leonean my heart is bleeding. when are we ever going to be able to compete with the rest of our compatriots in the contitent?. Reading Revs. comments on the match against Nigeria, and the upcoming one against S.Africa, it saddens me to come to the realisation that once more we are out even before the staters gun.
The post-morten must start now; firstly, the mori-bound SLFA must be dis-banned. I know people will talk about FIFA bans.Am fully aware of the repercusions, but there is a precendent-SENEGAL. Thus, Appoint administrators, and seek FIFA assistance in restructuring the association; the admistration, league management. Without a proper administration we are going no where, imagine the last web-site of the SLFA was designed and maintained by a then 13yr old kid in London.We failed to enter into CAF competitions because SLFA failed to enter our teams. Gone are the days when you have to post a letter to Cairo.Have they heared about email?. The last consignment of Footballs donated to the country was kept by the SLFA president ( one of the most corrupt, incapable individual ever elected to the postion. Whatever happened to millions donated to the SLFA from FIFA to develop football...(Please dont to point to the buildings in kingtom).An investigation committe must be instituted to get the current FA to account for every penny.
Restructure, the current set-up of the national team, especially the coaching staff. Bring a expert to help the local coaches(the likes Short Abu and Musa kallon have proven that with the right help they can diliver- U-17).Also, aan expert will be able to sell the country to oversea based players,in getting them committed to national sacrifice, and be better equiped to handle players. Some of whom feels that they are bigger the rest of the country.By putting on the GREEN WHITE BLUE they are representing over 5millions compartriots, it is not an audition....no it is a a battle....
So let start now with the post mortem!!!!

With all the rain that falls in Sierra Leone could we not at least harvest in drums and tanks water for laundry and bathing and, rain draining of the roof? I know of one lebanese who's swimming pool and all water for flushing his loilets etc come from rain water. He has ten big tanks buried underground.It lasts him from the end of the rains to January(flushing that is).
If everybody in Freetown had this system(to some extent) the big demand on Guma will decrease giving them time to improve the present system providing good cooking and drinking water.
Could anybody calculate the amount of water that could be collected of a roof of a two bedroom wanflat if it rains two hours every night? I am sure we have some Bo school and Grammer school eggheads on the forum!!

Great Sierra Leoneans have used their hard-earned cash, time, sweat and toil to open decent fora for their compatriots to reflect nostalgic, exchange ideas and occasionally scream at each other, but always with love and a clear understanding that we are all one people roped together by a common destiny.
In that regard I would like to extend my utmost regards and respect to one of Sierra Leone's finest female journalists ever, for her fearless scoops and her ability to throw a punch more lethal than any male counterpunch. It is a shame therefore that, after all her noble efforts to tone down the hostility, a skunk of a jerk has fanged himself, parasitically, in her wonderful forum and is now using that wonderful abode to launch vile and bastardic attacks on anyone associated with this Cocorioko forum.

This puny little lunkhead with an ego bigger than his backside, who spends crazy hours cramming Roget's Thesaurus only scares himself with the thunderous emptiness of those buffoonish words he calls rhetorical missiles that he regularly explodes on himself, unadulterated idiot that he is!

This slimy Wikillectual has used the OTHER FORUM to launch the vilest attacks on Creoles (go see the posts about London Krios and Village Krios), other tribes, and also direct ad hominem attacks on Kabs, Foday and other forumites (the Saw Pit forum he calls us). Ladies and gentlemen, it is time to take out the trash! I have an eager pin ready to prick a nice, small hole into the over-inflated ego of this tumid boil called SKUNKLAW@YAHOO.COM

We advise skunklaw@yahoo.com to mind his manners, modestly hide his TAIL behind his hind legs, speak softly with veneration nad reverence, and make sure that he watches what he eats in order to control what emanates from his ample 'back lips'. If THE SKUNK continues to act like the jackass that he is, the posse will pay a visit to the OTHER FORUM and do what so many decent forumites over there dearly wish, i.e, for us to grab that vulgar reprobate by the scruff of the neck and kick his orotund ass from here to Kissy where so many people are waiting to whip him for his BIG MOUTH!
You know what the pompous twat just posted? The skunk has the temerity to DECLARE WAR on the forum because some posts in which his name was tangentially mentioned were not removed, the insufferable wretch! This we say to that madcapper: Bring it on pee wee. We're gonna dust ya, cheeseball!

Jendema Hospital Cries for Help

Since the inception of President Koromas government last year, so many government institutions went on strike because of poor management especially the non payment of salaries of workers.

One such institution is the Jendema Hospital where the Health Superintendent, Mr. John P. Fullah says work for him and the rest of his staff is not going well because of many constraints they face some of which are bad roads, lack of stationery, office furniture, medicines, etc.

He further stated that even the office he is using and some wards are not good enough to work or admit patients in because if at any time rain falls the place becomes swamped forcing them at such times to use their homes to carry out their work.

He said he has made numerous complaints to the authorities concerned but nothing has been done to alleviate their situation

Towards the Food Security Trail

A green revolution had been the suggestion for the achievement of Africa’s food sufficiency by many foresighted leaders, but the Sierra Leonean political chemistry is blued in contra views of opposing initiatives of successive regimes.

Recently in an all African leaders summit in Kampala, Uganda, the former UN Secretary General, Kofi Anan, reiterated his call for a green revolutionary intervention to salvage Africas food crisis.

The different names attached to the common call for the food security and food sufficiency does not matter, perhaps the practical bold steps initiative which is yet to be taken is the real headache in the matter.

The call for the union of all political parties to salvage the persistent threat of global food crisis is in tandem, reminiscent to the meaning that the red sun which symbolizes the energy for work and the green symbolizing agricultural potential which is strongly featured in our national flag.

In the Sierra Leonean perspective, like somebody jokingly said, the colours of our political system should be seen in symbiotic relation fostering the actualization of the needs of the citizenry.

To put a national cohesion and achieve a future generation goal of food self sufficiency, the two political parties i.e. the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) and the All Peoples Congress (APC) should work in uniformity.

The country wipes tears of global disparaging factors of famine and drought of our domestic food stocks which are not readily available and are only salvaged through foreign support.

A pragmatic approach is the common call every Sierra Leonean is yelling for, thwarting though that the ruling APC Government is much more akin on stressing the global food crisis factor.

Sierra Leoneans are expecting a ruling system that is coping with the prevalent heat in all circumstances that the incumbent President made a vow to tackle before assuming the seat of power.

In a different Sierra Leonean context, the comment by the President that Sierra Leone is the least on price tagging of basic commodities sounds satiric in real situational terms owing to the wages and earning of the civil servants in recent times.

Perhaps instead of hollering about global trends what is needed now is for our government to spearhead the local action for food security by initiating agricultural projects on a very large scale all over the country.

What is Happening at the Mines Ministry?

What the system described as the politics of inclusion is inherent to describing the failure of governments in Africa for the lack of probity of government functionaries.

Assuming that is not really the problem, the too many high hopes on flyby night political allies is a much a derailing factor; then culminating into a system of political loyalty compensation.

It is no secret that a lot of party loyalists are not patriotic citizens but they only use their positions of trust to enrich themselves and their families at the expense of the majority of the people.

No one is actually saying that the Minister of Mineral Resources, Alhaji Abu Bakarr Jalloh, is not qualified for the position, but competency needs to incorporate a very huge vacuum, if the duties of the state are to be delivered earnestly and sincerely to achieve the desired objectives.

In recent times Sierra Express has been monitoring the Mines Ministry which is ultimately the most dormant Ministry in the APC Government because we have discovered that it lacks efficiency in policy matters and general administration. Visiting the Ministry one can hardly access the Ministers presence in his office which suggests that the Ministers frequent absence is an undermining factor to the smooth running of the Ministry.

Apart from his administrative staff that appear very reluctant to process documents of clients, the Minister continues to display so much arrogance to the extent that many business people find it very difficult to do business with the Ministry.

Investors who come to do business here are mostly frustrated by this type of attitude of the Minister and key officials and more often than not they pack out and take their money elsewhere.

An investor disclosed to this paper that he was asked to pay a bribe before his documents could be processed.

Its barely nine months in office such a large volume of accusations of corruption and nonchalance have been recorded against this all important Ministry, one then wonders how much damage it will record in five years.

Parliament Lambasts Government

Members of Parliament belonging to the three different political parties, namely, the All Peoples Congress (APC), the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP), and the Peoples Movement for Democratic Change (PMDC), have expressed dissatisfaction over the functioning of the Executive arm of Government.

They became rowdy in Parliament last week following reactions from different MPs accusing the Government of being incapable of carrying out its responsibilities.

The Parliamentarians were especially angered by the latest dismissal of the Sierra Leone Parliament membership of the International Parliamentary Union for failing to pay it subscr1ptions.

The International Parliamentary Union is an international organization of Parliaments of sovereign states world wide that promotes parliamentary dialogue to foster peace and cooperation among people as well as the establishment of representative institutions.

Following last week’s parliamentary session the Privilege Motion was topical in the debate for the ratification of the status of the Sierra Leone Parliament with the International Parliamentary Union.

Hon. Betts Priddy stressed that the Government has to strongly advocate for its ratification so that the country can regain its membership status. She and Hon. Chernor Bah, both of the APC, were critical of the current executive arm of government, which they described as only been interested in making money and not working effectively. Hon. Chernor Bah pointed out that members of the executive are more interested in always travelling across the globe and care little about addressing other pressing matters.

The SLPP Member of Parliament for Bo Central Constituency, Hon. Elizabeth Alpha Lavalie, suggested to her colleagues to cut down on their spending and save money to pay the subscr1ption. She emphasized that MPs needed to put their priorities right, especially now that they are no longer displaced.

Hon. Tamba Kaibanga, also of the SLPP, stressed that Parliament should make Ministers accountable by constantly asking them questions pertaining to good governance.

Posted to the web 11 June 2008

Peter Sao Gbonjei
Moyamba

Chiefdom authorities and residents of Gbangbatoke in the Lower Banta chiefdom Moyamba district have expressed concerns over what they observed was very unprecedented of the resident minister south, Musa Tarawally.

In a letter to the minister of local government and community development dated May 28, 2008, Paramount Chief Edgar Margai complained against Tarawally's action he described as not only humiliating but also disturbing to his chiefdom.


He affirmed that the visit by the minister to his chiefdom without going through necessary procedures was not only illegal but also unfortunate, especially when he convened meeting without permission from him, his chiefdom speaker, section chiefs and elders.


PC Margai said Hon. Tarawally unilaterally declared the chiefdom jetty/trade fair contract to one Edgar Howard much to the dissatisfaction of the chiefdom administration.

He described the minister's behavior as "very rustic that has the tendency to throw the chiefdom into chaos." He claimed that the minister's security guards could even ask the chiefdom elders including Amidu Kpokie, Aron Tucker, Foday Forbie, Albert Tommy and Dauda Tayeh out of ceremony.

Efforts to reach the minister proved futile.

BBC NEWSLiberians killed in farm massacre

Liberia is recovering from a 14-year civil war

Liberian police are investigating the killing of at least 12 farm workers in a land dispute over the weekend in a remote southern part of the country.

They had been thrown into a river after being shot and hacked to death, Police Director Beatrice Munah Sieh said.

The BBC's Jonathan Paye-Layleh in Liberia says nearly 50 people are feared to have been killed.

He said the farmland on which the attack took place is claimed by a prominent ex-rebel and a senator.

Liberia is recovering from a 14-year civil war which ended in 2003.

Our correspondent says the victims had been working for former rebel spokesman Charles Bennie.

One of those who escaped, Tidoe Monden, said the shooting started on Saturday morning as they were working in a field.

"We just saw suppressive gunfire from all directions," he said.

The attackers then used workers' machetes to "finish some of the wounded", he said.

Senator Roland Kaine has denied any knowledge of the attack.

Ms Sieh said that divers had so far recovered 12 bodies from Farmington River near the farm about 55km (35 miles) south of the capital, Monrovia.

Pretoria - Bafana Bafana's new Brazilian coach Joel Santana gets his chance to win the hearts and minds of South African soccer fans when he leads his squad against the Leone Stars in Freetown on Saturday.

If he returns home with three points, he'll be a hero; one point will buy him grace from his critics, while defeat will see the knives drawn to cut him to shreds.

The normally confident Super Eagles, who beat South Africa 2-0 at home, and then scraped home 1-0 in extra time against Sierra Leone, openly admit that they received a scare in Freetown.

"They threw everything they had at us and that made the match very difficult. It was our experience, quality and the power of the prayers from Nigerian fans that saw us through," Eagles' striker Ikechukwu Uche said afterwards.

"We expected a difficult and a resilient side, but we didn't know that the Leone Stars would be so good at home."

Amaglug-glug coach Steve Komphela says virtually the same thing after going on a spying mission to West Africa.

"I think we [Bafana] need to give them respect because they have the potential to cause havoc when they host us," Komphela said in a report published by Business Day on Tuesday.

Mourning

"They could be tougher opponents than the Equatorial Guinea team we saw here at the weekend. They definitely look a better side. They pose a serious threat and they are very athletic."

The Leone Stars, on the other hand, say the soccer gods were against them last week and that goal posts sprouted hands to save the whole of the Nigerian nation from going in mourning.

"Twice we left the Nigerians gasping in despair as the ball seemed to be heading for the net, but then the Nigerians threw their hands into the air in relief each time as the ball bounced back from the goalposts."

"If the goalposts had not interceded on behalf of the Eagles, Nigeria would have been plunged in deep mourning. And this happened despite the Leone Stars being short-handed by the absence of our two power houses, Mohamed Kallon and Paul Kpaka," says a report from Freetown.

Kallon missed Saturday's defeat to Nigeria after receiving two yellow cards in previous African Nations Cup qualifying matches. But he will be available to give Bafana headaches in Freetown at the weekend.

Good news, however, for Bafana is that the latest report from Sierra Leone discloses that experienced Italian-based defender Kewullay Conteh will miss his country's World Cup qualifier against South Africa as he is putting his club above the national team.

Conteh, who also missed the opening two group four matches against Equatorial Guinea and Nigeria over the last two weeks, is to play for his Serie B club Albinoleffe as they take on Lecce in the Serie B promotion play-off match at the weekend.

International experience

Lecce meet Albinoleffe in the first leg on Wednesday night and the return match is on Sunday. The winner earns promotion to Serie A next season.

Conteh is one of the few Leone Stars players with any international experience and his absence will come as a massive blow to the West Africans, who have lost their opening group matches in the group.

The 30-year-old Conteh has played in Italy for more than a decade, starting at Atalanta and then later appearing for Chievo, Verona, Venezia and Palermo. This season he made 31 appearances for AlbinoLeffe in the Second Division.

Nigeria unhappy with Sierra Leone treatment
Posted: 2008-06-11 10:17

The Nigeria Football Association have expressed their unhappiness at the treatment meted out to the contingent by the Sierra Leone FA during last weekend's 2010 World Cup/Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

NFA's Chief Media Officer Ademola Olajire told KickOffNigeria.com that their hosts failed to play by the rules.

We must commend them for it, because in spite of everything they went through, they still got a victory

Ademola Olajire

"According to the regulations, the host association is supposed to be responsible for taking care of internal transport and accommodation expenses from the moment the visiting team arrive in their country, but the Sierra Leone FA did not do that," Olajire said.

"We had to pay for the bus that took us from the airport, and also paid our way on the ferry from Lunga to Freetown.

"They also did not pay for the hotel and we had to do so on our own.

"We were even delayed for over two hours at the airport because of a payment that we were required to make which should have been taken care of by the host FA."

Olajire stopped short of saying the Sierra Leoneans would be paid back in their own coin when they come to Abuja for the return leg later in the year, but warned that they should be mindful of the antics they play, especially when they have the return leg still to come.

"Maybe they forgot that they still have the return leg to play in Abuja."

The NFA spokesman however commended the Super Eagles players for their patience, "They went through a lot on that journey, but to their credit, they were very patient and did not complain.

"Even when we were delayed for over two hours at the airport after an exhausting ferry ride, they were just sitting around and waiting for the issues to be resolved without any incident.

"We must commend them for it, because in spite of everything they went through, they still got a victory."

Welcome to Africa. Did this also happen to Leones Stars recently in Equatorial Guinea.Most countries give lip service to soccer and it is a shame that this continue to happen all the time.Officials in charge of soccer always pocket the money which leads to disgruntled players and losing sides. It was usual for the host country to provide transportation and hotel accommodation.If the visiting side choose to find there own transportation and lodging, then so be it.That was why hostels were built in every stodium.

Indeed many will be confused by EBK's actions but the adept historian will take careful note of every action for a factual analysis of the underlying principles in his administration.
EBK's actions, since taking office, speak loud and clear. Here are a few factual messages the actions carry:

Let there be freedom of the Press and initially those who violate ethical standards will be pardoned but required to undergo training on Press ethics. Repeat offenders would suffer the consequences.

Let Ex-Presidents live and let them live without fear. Ex-Presidents can be valuable resources to the economic and social advancement of Sierra Leone and should be utilized whenever necessary. If an Ex-President has a legal problem, the court system will have jurisdiction.

Let economic and social development in Sierra Leone be based on sound reasoning unencumbered by regional and ethnic politics of discrimination.

Let there be zero tolerance for corruption. Remember EBK’s phrase – ‘There are no sacred cows’.

I think that we have a lot to learn about how different EBK is from past politicians and from many of us including his supporters. Let us be open minded. There are brighter days ahead.

Greetings. Man Pekin, you wrote: “I was surprised to know that he will be launching the Unity Radio. There are better things to do than launching an opposition party radio station.

Leone from unpatriotic and selfish politicians who only care for themselves and their families.”
Man Pekin, thank you for your views. I will not object to the way you look at President Koroma’s move to launch an opposition radio. As a democratically minded individual who has nothing to hide as President Koroma, by this move, has manifested he doesn’t, I fervently believe that you have a right to your opinions. However, I would like to admonish you to look beyond partisan politics and view the direction he is leading Sierra Leone. Many countries today are yarning for a day Free Speech is allowed, though we might have been enjoying it for years as oppose to some other nations yet, the landmark he is setting by this is fascinating.
This move to launch an opposition radio demonstrates a new direction that will open the eyes of Sierra Leoneans to viewing politics and opposition parties as contenders rather than enemies. It manifests a quality character that speaks volume. It shows that President Koroma wishes to move-away from dictatorial political vibes to embracing even political opponents as compatriots whose criticism, if done within the circumference of nationhood, will be appreciated rather than scolded or quieted.
This mindset of dictatorship has leveraged the sufferings that mankind has endured since time. However nations that have embraced Free Speech, have served as a pillar for national and global development, which we see in the developed world and in most African Countries such as Senegal, where Leopold Sedar Senghor laid a formidable democratic principle foundation that entails the acceptance an encouragement of Free Speech and other inalienable rights, which is why Senegal is prosperous than most Third World Countries where Free Speech is stepped-upon.
President Koroma’s endeavor to open-up the line of communications so that every person, be them opponents or not, is a move that should be applauded as a fellow contributor has articulately stated.
The reason why most people struggle with the idea of democracy and therefore mistreat and endeavor to hold the latter is grounded in the homes from which they were brought-up or countries they hail from that were or are not democratic enough, in that they were restricted from speaking or listening to people with vibrant ideas. As such, they become mentally enslaved, which results in guessing about issues dislodging them from understanding right from wrong thereby, causing them to break even the simple laws of their lands in a verge to be respected. In which case, I fervently believe that any section, article and what have you of a nation’s constitution that is breached, qualifies an individual as a criminal or has criminal tendencies; and there is nothing fancy about that.
Let us give President Koroma the support he needs to open our minds by allowing us to have our say in matters relating to our country. The mind is a terrible thing to waste. There is no dignity in breaching the law, for ignorance of the law is no excuse.

Thanks for your response, Bambay. My question is why Prezo EBK and not the Minister of Information or his Deputy. Indeed, Prezo Koroma should be careful. Former and late Prezo Momoh was a fine gentleman, but his advisers around him were not patriotic. Look what they did to him. Politicians like JB Dauda and others.

I think the presence of the Minister Of Information or his Deputy would have served the same purpose or achieved the same objectives.Those praising the President for such a gesture will be the same ones to rebuke him later. To open up to the oposition, and for that matter to every Sierra Leonean is a fine idea, but believe you me the realities of contemporary politics in sierra Leone, especially when it comes to the SLPP, speak a diffierent language. So president Koroma has got to be careful. At the end of the day we should never forget that ours is multi party system of democracy in AFRICA. If the alleged utterances of Charles Margai (a coalision partner)in Kailahun are to go by, we should know that the terrain is not as smooth as some may assume. At the end of the day, the reality stands firm, that Margai may not only be speaking for himself or his PMDC but for many others in the SLPP opposition.

Man Pekin, Mr. Fenthi and Mr. Alie Formeh Kamara, let me thank you for your responses and remind you that to have been able to share ideas in a timely fashion as we are currently doing, with the freedom to do it is remarkable and could have never been achieved many years back and is still imperceivable for many people’s in different parts of the world today, thanks to Free Speech or the lack of it.
To respond to your concern, where you stated: “. My question is why Prezo EBK and not the Minister of Information or his Deputy.” I would say that such a decision has more to do with diplomatic and parastatal reasons. It is a manifestation of the President’s commitment to promoting Free Speech by giving weight, by gracing the occasion especially when he is invited by the opposition.
With regards to your observation in the ensuing statement, where you stated: “Indeed, Prezo Koroma should be careful.” Let me remind you of a passage in one of Shakespeare’s literary work, where it is stated: “a coward dies many a time before their actual death; the valiant never taste of death but once.” What can we deduce from this statement is that many a time people become paranoiac, paralalizing them from doing what is right because doing good had caused sadness for other people. Indeed, President Momoh was a fine gentleman, a misunderstood leader whose service could have helped Sierra Leone, whose mistakes President Koroma must have learned from.
We could have had various views, as apparent in this discuss, some of which could have been vastly misconstrued ideas, others sheer propaganda or simple lack of touch with facts or concepts because of the lack of a medium of communication to relay our views. We could have been left in a complete darkness denying us the chance to broaden our horizon in that, fear or ignorance of what goes on in Sierra Leone and the world could have only trimmed us to educated buffoons who because of this darkness are enshrined in the limbo of wrong doing, unashamed of the embarrassment words and actions say of us to those who actually know. This is why free speech and involving in the exercise
there-of, is essential for every human being. What has been achieved here is render us the opportunity to rethink our views because we have other information and outlets that we can employ and consume to enable us have a baseline to compare with. Misconceptions can then be rechecked in this process. Formidable ideas can be shared that might result in creativity and concomitantly, national and global development. This is why Free Speech and forums like this, and the establishment of the Unity Radio therefore, if utilized responsibly, is essential for the promotion of a nation’s information-base (knowledge-base) and development. The lack of which will allow people to rely heavily on gossips rather than facts and deny them the ability to process accurate information, a habit that is dangerous for civilization and democracy. This is why people get angry for no apparent reason and are unashamed of seeing being angry for no apparent reason.
This is so because, and as a great philosopher once said, that one who holds the freedom of speech of others or shy-away from knowledge has imprisoned his mind and closed the door to self-development and that of those denied the freedom to express themselves. Therefore, we should look at President Koroma’s move as an attempt to opening a gate to more freedom if the radio station is used responsibly with the interest of the nation at heart and not used for propaganda because the implementation of reckless journalistic exercise would serve more harm than good for our nation as it did for Rwanda, where it created a divide that the International Community is not impressed with, in that, it caused millions of lives rather bring progress to the country. Which leaves me no room but to agree with Mr. Alie Formeh Kamara who stated that, “EBK will be judged by what he does to promote the welfare of Sierra Leoneans and not what he did to crush the opposition.” In retrospect, I hope the opposition recognizes the same that they will be judged by what they do with this radio in promoting the welfare of Sierra Leoneans rather than allow it to create a divide in a verge to crush the sitting government. Realizing that Civilization could have never been achieved had the civilized prided themselves on the number of people they were/are capable of crushing. Rather, they pride themselves on how their individual and collective collaboration has helped create avenues, that in turn, has helped or will help free-thinking to empower the people and enhance creativity.
The President and his government, and meaningful Sierra Leoneans see it fit that the status quo be changed. Which brings me to cautiously agree with Mr. Fenthi when he stated: “To open up to the oposition, and for that matter to every Sierra Leonean is a fine idea, but believe you me the realities of contemporary politics in sierra Leone, especially when it comes to the SLPP, speak a diffierent language.” My only admonition is to encourage Sierra Leoneans that we must engage in changing such ingrained idea of the contemporary politics by encouraging and applauding what is formidable for national interest in a verge to changing the status quo and usher-in development for all.
In closing, let me state that President Koroma’s move to gracing this occasion is about change towards a formidable democracy, it manifests his dedication to democracy, free speech in particular and for national unity, which God knows, we need dearly, a lesson the S.L.P.P., other parties and all Sierra Leoneans must learn from. Besides, it moves us closer to the qualities requested of us by the International Community for good governance to qualify us or strengthen the belief that our debts must be pardoned because we are ready for a formidable and appreciable democracy. So we must applaud his move to grace this occasion that members of the International Diplomatic Corp and other members of the International Community will also be in attendance.

Ok let’s keep it at that. This forum was set up to exchange ideas that will help all of us make contributions to our beloved country. We at Cocorioko truly believe that exchange of information from good meaning Sierra Leoneans will compensate for the Brain drain and loss of human resources suffered as a country over the years. A lot of Sierra Leoneans cannot return back home but if given a mechanize such as this forum, will make intellectual contributions to benefit of our beloved country. Let’s give those people a brake...

We hope going forward everyone will try to use there good judgment and exercise retrain. An attack on Rev. Kabbs Kanu is an attack on every last one of us and the thousands fans and supporter worldwide.

Our position is simple. We will not start or provoke any fight but if the fight is brought to us this time, it will end at the door steps of everyone that is direct and indirectly connected.

Time to fool around is over. We expect everyone to take the moral high ground and do the right thing and participate in a civil Forum to uplift our Country and Ailing Economy back home. It is your right to critize constructively on government policies that you feel you have alternative solutions. This will make us better as a country and as people ready to move Sierra Leone forward.

For those who come to abuse this forum, shape up or we have no choice but to give a first class ticket to the other forum. We are determined to keep only the cream de la cream here on this forum.

Moreover, we are counting on all Forumits to hold their horses and continue to exercise maturity to prove to those Nay Sayers that COCORIOKO is Medicinal and people only come here to get the best & up to the minute news on current affairs about Sierra Leone and to wind down a very difficult day.

Again, I pray everyone exercise restrains to continue working together as we have done the last two months...

Family Express Concerned Over Declared Wanted Person
Written by The Exclusive News Paper


Wednesday, 11 June 2008

Members of the Samura family have expressed worry and concern over the disappearance of their family member, Famoroh Samura since results of last Presidential and Parliamentary elections were announced.Family sources say Famoroh was a Stationery Dealer in Freetown and also a sponsor of the SLPP Young Generation, the party’s youth wing during the said elections.


He was also a Contractor supplying stationery to the then SLPP Ministries, proceeds of which he was accused of expending on the SLPP campaigns.

Following the announcement of the results of the Presidential run off in September 2007, Famoroh’s shop was vandalized by alleged irate APC youths and he was targeted at his residence in the eastern suburb of Freetown.

He however managed to escape the raid.According to reports, Famoroh was in hiding while a formal report was lodged against him at the Freetown Central Police and a warrant issued for his arrest on charges of misappropriation of public funds.Famoroh disappeared since then as he apparently received reports from relatives of raids on his residence by police officers.

Since then his whereabouts is not known and this is what is worrying and has become a grave concern to his family members and relatives.In spite of worries about his whereabouts, family members The Exclusive spoke to are against the resurfacing of Famoroh in the country, at least not in the immediate future as according to them, they are worried about his safety.

In a letter addressed to the National Electoral Commission (NEC) in Freetown, the youths maintained that they decided to take such an action because of what the described as the deliberate refusal of the NEC’s offices in Makeni to recruit youths from the Chiefdom to take part in their activities which included voter registration and sensitization.The youths complained that despite several efforts and moves made by them, NEC went ahead to recruit youths from Makeni and other areas leaving them out.

They cited Wards 92, 93, 94, among others, of which, they said, the Registrars were recruited from Makeni.Responding to the allegations, the Deputy Elections Officer in Bombali, Christian Oriley noted that there are set criterion for the recruitment of staff for the Commission. He said most of the youths from that Chiefdom failed the examinations conducted by the Commission which according to him is part of the recruitment process. “We owe no grudge against anyone.


It is only that we are strictly following laid down rules,” the NEC official stated.Meanwhile, the Local Unit Commander (LUC) for Makeni Division, Chief Superintendent Kaikai is reported to have deployed police personnel in the entire registration area ahead of time, so as to forestall any attempt by irate youths to cause any trouble as envisaged.The security situation in the entire district is reportedly calm.

Voter Importation APC Exposed

Written by The Exclusive News Paper

Reports from Bonthe District, Southern Province, reaching The Exclusive indicate that a boat full of fishermen normally resident in the fishing village of Mborkie in the Sittia Chiefdom, Bonthe District, attempted to register in two locat1ons in the Bonthe Town Council which is outside of their place of residence which is the Bonthe District Council.

These fishermen believed to be Temnes and members of APC, reports say, headed first for the fishing locat1on of York Island, in the Bonthe Town Council area, where they attempted to register for the upcoming Local Council Elections but were met with stiff but amicable resistance by members of both the SLPP and the PMDC who told them point blank that they are from outside of their constituency and would therefore, not be allowed to register.


Reports say they later went to the APC Candidate for the Bonthe Mayoral position, Mohamed Sheriff, a lecturer at the Bonthe Technical Training College before they departed crestfallen back to Mbokie. The situation is however reported to be calm.According to our findings, this is an age-old practice of the APC in that region.


"We hope that such practices would no longer be encouraged in our new found and cherished democratic dispensation since it used to cause instability and violence; a situation we should do our level best to avoid," stated an elderly indigene of Bonthe.

All out attack for Bafana says Roger Palgrem


MZWAKHE NGWENYA

JOHANNESBURG - Bafana Bafana should look no further than Thanda Royal Zulu for advice on their opponents, Sierra Leone, on Saturday.

Current Royal Zulu manager, Roger Palgrem coached Sierra Leone in the Nineties and is arguably the most successful coach they’ve had over the years.

“I led them to two Africa Cup of Nations tournaments,” Palgrem who is on holiday in Sweden, said.

Palgrem was at the helm of the Leone Stars when they reached their first Nations Cup finals in Tunisia in 1994, and then two years later in South Africa.

When Nigeria won the spectacle in 1994 in Tunis and South Africa later on home soil, Palgrem’s team were knocked out in the first round on both occasions.

Asked on his former team’s strengths going into their match against Bafana on the weekend, Palgrem said Joel Santana’s men should not underestimate their opponents.

“Naturally, they are big and very skilful. They play good football and Bafana can’t afford to take them lightly,” the former Rwanda coach said.

“Bafana should apply an all-out attack attitude on Saturday.

“South Africa is blessed with good players, unfortunately they are not all playing for competitive teams.

“Only Steven Pienaar and captain Aaron Mokoena play in a good league – the English Premiership,” Palgrem added.

Palgrem says Freetown is not an unpleasant place, contrary to how most people perceive the west African city.

“Its a good place. The local people are very welcoming and Bafana will not find it hard to be accommodated there,” Palgrem concluded.

I am a born warrior. I was born in a warrior family and one thing about me is that I am afraid of no scum on this earth. Those of you who have known for long know , via our often thrilling odyssey through SLIS ,LEONENET-UMBC , LEONENET-TAMU, NUP FORUM ,AFRICA ONLINE and this COCORIOKO FORUM that I love to go down the wire with my detractors. You all know how much I fought in these forums--And God willing, I will fight agaiin one day if advantage is taken over me.

When I was arrested in 1977 during Sierra Leone's worst Nazist days, I preferred to go to PADEMBA ROAD PRISONS than recant my position to the Commissioner of Police , Bambay Kamara and his Deputy Kaetu-Smith.I spent two months at Pademba Road and when I came back, lots of people prevailed on me to go and beg .I did not. I preferred self-exile in neighbouring Liberia than stoop to dictators.

THE ONLY HINDERANCE I HAVE NOW IS THIS BIG TITLE BEHIND MY NAME--REVEREND. WHENEVER I WANT TO GO THE DEEP END WITH MY ENEMIES, APPEALS START COMING FROM ALL QUARTERS : "OH, REMEMBER , YOU ARE A REVEREND ! ! !" and "OH, REMEMBER , MEMBERS OF YOUR CONGREGATION MAY BE READING THIS FORUM . YOU DON'T WANT THEM TO BACKSLIDE OR STUMBLE .YOU HAVE TO TURN THE OTHER CHEEK. "

It is so difficult to be a Reverend. At times, I want to put my foot right in the mouths of my enemies. I want to put that foot there and twist it and have my enemy beg me for mercy first before extricating them from their pain. I want them to know that I AM MENDEYKUNDA, THE WARRIOR OF LOKOLAND WHO DOES NOT FEAR ANY SCUM. I want to hold their heads in warrior -glee and have them beg me first BEFORE REMOVING MY FOOT FROM INSIDE THEIR MOUTHS . But when you are a Reverend, you have to swallow your pride . When you a Christian , you no longer belong to yourself. You belong to Jesus Christ. You don't satisfy your impulses because the man you serve, Jesus Christ, suffered worst things at the hands of scums but he did not retaliate. He had millions of hosts of angels that he could have deployed to crush his enemies, but when the scums PERSECUTED AND REVILED AND EXECUTED HIM ON THE CROSS , all he said was : "FATHER FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO. " or "LET YOUR WILL , AND NOT, MY WILL BE DONE " . When you have a saviour like Jesus Christ, you don't punish your enemies the way they deserve.

SO IF KABS KANU, WHO IS ALSO MENDEYKUNDA, THE WARRIOR OF LOKOLAND, seems to be withdrawing from battle today, it is because of this big title behind his name--REVEREND. And I am proud of being a Reverend. And like my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ ,I am ready to be a worm for the sake of the gospel of love and peace and for the sake of the brethren, whom I don't want to fall.

That said, I want all my supporters , all my fans, all those who follow me to know that when I act, I don't act because scums issue threats to me. Left to me I want to fight.I want to inflict punishing verbal fuscillades at my enemies, but oh ya, this title behind my name--Reverend. It has my hands tied . Yet I will rather have my hands tied for Jesus Christ than be the loose canon my human spirit wants me to be, shoving my foot in my enemies' mouths.

ALSO, RIGHT IS RIGHT.WRONG IS WRONG. Our parents taught us to do the right thing, whatever the circumstances or provocation. WE MUST NOT CONDONE WRONG CONDUCTS BECAUSE WE WANT TO SHOW OTHERS THAT WE ARE TOUGH. IF WE BELIEVE IN OUR HEARTS THAT WE HAVE WRONGED PEOPLE, IT IS HONORABLE TO ACCEPT AND MAKE THE APPROPRIATE RESTITUTION THAN BE ARROGANT AND STAND ON TOP OF EVIL AND CONTINUE PROCLAIMING OUR RIGHTS. YOU ALL , TRUE AND BLOOD-BORN SIERRA LEONEANS, KNOW THAT THAT WAS NOT THE WAY OUR PARENTS BROUGHT US UP IN SIERRA LEONE.

This brings me to my topic. I am disappointed at "Sadam Inane" and what he did today. I have just read his post about AWARENESS TIMES and I think it was wickedly done in violation of the peace accord masterminded by Dr. Marda Mustapha and many intellectuals of calm, decent and civilized caliber ( I don't know anybody else who spoke to me or took part in bringing the conflict between me and Sylvia Blyden to an end other than Marda Mustapha and those who spoke directly to me. ANYBODY ON ANY FORUM MAKING HIMSELF FEEL GOOD THAT HE WAS A PARTY, I , KABS KANU, DO NOT RECOGNISE YOU ).

I have also repeatedly warned here that since Sylvia Blyden and her forumites do not attack me or even mention my name in her forum, people here should desist from mentioning her name or newspaper here. IT IS PART OF THE DICTUM OF RIGHT AND WRONG. IT IS WRONG FOR PEOPLE HERE TO ATTACK SYLVIA BLYDEN FOR ANY REASON WHEN SHE AND HER FORUMITES DO NOT ATTACK ME. RIGHT IS RIGHT.WRONG IS WRONG. And whatever decision I am going to take here, it is because of the WRONGNESS OF "SADAM INNANE'S ' POST THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

I strongly believe that it is honorable when somebody realises that he has wronged somebody else and apologises. One of the reasons for Africa being in such desperate straits is THE SPIRIT OF IMPUNITY .By apologising to President Ernest Koroma, I think Sylvia is showing strength of character , good breeding and christian character than being a turn-coat. Sadam Inane is so wrong in saying that Awareness Times apologised because it wants to be a turn-coat.

I also want to believe that people make these posts to set others up. They make these posts because they want others to respond in kind and in the process set up people for conflicts that degenerate into "mammy cuss" or "wife cuss" or "family cuss" .

Sadam Inane read all my warnings but he also wanted to test my resolve. And for that I am banning him from this forum forthwith .He will not post on this forum again.

He can go to the other forum and join others to attack me .I will not relent from doing what is right .

As for those threatening and giving me ultimatums, I want to challenge them that if they have something against me and want to really tango with me, they should stop hiding behind the Sylvia Blyden/Kabs Kanu conflict and come clean and let us tango.

I know I cannot go down to certain levels because I am a Reverend , but I can fight with decent words and decent tactics.

If possible, for decent people on this forum not to be offended, we can set up parallel forums and use them to fight. I m prepared for such a verbal war if only to prove that I fear no foe and that nobody can dictate to me. I am ready to verbally put my foot in yapping mouths and twist it until the enemy askes for mercy. Right now. I am ready to go.

What I am doing in removing Sadam Inane's post and banning him is MORE to prove a point --That RIGHT IS RIGHT.WRONG IS WRONG. ALSO, THAT WE MUST LEARN TO LIVE BY RULES AND REGULATIONS AND NOT BE SO "TRANGER-YASED" THAT WE FLOUT APPEALS UPON APPEALS, INSPITE OF ALL THE WARNINGS THAT WE SHOULD DESIST FROM ATTACKING PEOPLE WHO DO NOT ATTACK US IN THEIR FORUMS.

I want to reiterate once again that if anybody has issues with Awareness Times and Sylvia Blyden , she should be attacked in her forum , not on this forum, since nobody on her forum attacks me or COCORIOKO.

Also, it is stupid for anybody to think that I have no control over the forum. These are free and open forums and people post without consulting the owners. After all, did the the same individual post something on the other forum this weekend attacking CREOLES and decent academics who have trained many in top positions today ? Does that mean that the owner of that forum does not have control over her forum ? AND THAT INSULTING POSTS AGAINST THE CREOLES IS STILL ON THE FORUM ! ! ! ! ! ! It is a question of speaking about the mote in other people's eyes while having a log in our own eyes ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

It is never easy, although commendable, for a warrior to be a peacenik. I applaud the dawn of peace in Forumland, but I chafe when people call us sleazeballs and direct other unappetizing sobriquets at us, simply because they can do so and get away with it. The bosses of Sierra Leone fora have demonstrated their good upbringing and far-sightedness by making the discussion boards free of scurrilous personal attack: It is a good thing.
What is not kosher is having naked emperors strutting around, puffing their puny chests, barking directives, threats and ultimata. And we actually appear to be giving in to these Napoleons! It is your forum Kabs, and you have always been fully in charge, despite what aliens from Crete may lazily think. Please do not turn us into forumites who do not sweat when making love; scratch without claws, or box with dainty, manicured paws. Peace between the fora is a reality. We only wish that the FIT-YIE from certain individuals stops.

Kabs-Kanu, thanks for your brilliant post. With respect, please, allow me to correct you:
In 1977 when you were arrested, Bambay Kamara was not our POLICE CHIEF. Former police commissioner, Mr. Kaetu-Smith was not the deputy to Pa Bambay. Mr. Katu-Smith was senior for Pa Bambay Kamara.

Thank you, Saidu. You were right but Bambay was more powerful than Kaetu-Smith, who had a Liberia parethood. All detainees were taken first to Bambay Kamara who mouthwashed and threatened them before they were taken to Pademba Road Prisons. Many detainees surrendered and "mojubaed' before the powerful Bambay, but I did not.I remained defiant.

Even when we were released to taken first to Shaki and he too was mouthwashing us and threatening us I did not budge. Shaki told us that if we were in Uganda (Amin was in power then ) ,we would not have been seen again.

While he was speaking ,Shaki forgot Idi Amin's name and was was stammering .He was saying something like : If nar Uganda , una bin for just loss ..if me nar bin President ....President... ". One detainee helped him :"Idi Amin, sir".Shaki got mad and screamed at him : "Set you mammy in .......Udat ask you for talk ? " .The old man was really mad with us but I was one man who never budged.

Guys, I got this e-mail from my brother.

It's all happening in the US .....


A former operator of a Milwaukee public charter school pleaded guilty
Tuesday to embezzling more than $300,000 in federal funds intended for the
school she founded and led from 2003 to 2006.

Rosella Tucker, 55, faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and
$250,000 in fines.
She also will have to pay Milwaukee Public Schools $200,000, according to
the plea agreement Tucker signed last month.
Tucker, a native of Sierra Leone, may also face deportation. She has lived
in the U.S. for nearly 20 years and recently became a legal permanent resident.

Though she said little Tuesday beyond responding to the judge's
questions, Tucker appeared in federal court to acknowledge taking $300,000 in
U.S. Department of Education money intended for the New Hope Institute of
Science and Technology, which she started through a charter agreement with MPS.

She spent about $200,000 on personal expenses, including cars, funeral
arrangements and home improvement, according to court documents. Tucker has
argued that the remainder of the money she received was legitimate
reimbursement for school-related expenses.
In most criminal cases involving people with green cards, a federal
immigration judge will review immigration status after the sentence has been
served, said Gail Montenegro, a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs
Enforcement.
Because the fraud involves an amount greater than $10,000, Tucker's
conviction will likely be classified an aggravated felony, said John Sesini, an
immigration attorney in Milwaukee who is not involved in the case.
"At some point she most likely will be facing deportation proceedings,
and it will be very difficult for her to remain here," Sesini said.
Tucker might get a break if she can prove that she faces persecution in her
home country, he said.
Tucker's sentencing hearing is set for Sept. 4.
Tucker and her attorney, Jeremy Levinson, would not comment on the case.
Until recently, Tucker also was a full-time science teacher at Milwaukee
Area Technical College.
The Milwaukee School Board voted to close New Hope Institute of Science and
Technology in February 2006, amid problems that included unpaid bills and lack
of appropriate teacher licensure.
The following month, the state Department of Public Instruction ordered
Tucker to return $740,000 she had received in voucher payments over two years
to operate a separate school, Tucker's Institute of Learning, in the
Milwaukee Parental Choice Program.
