Read about what Hon. Kemoh Sesay did to journalists in 2007 when he was a Minister, according to the Global Times.
Most of the topics we address, particularly those related to politics, require a broad perspective. Hon. Kemoh Sesay is well aware that saying things about people that are inaccurate and may harm their reputation is a crime known as libel or defamation. And while he was a Minister in Ernest Koroma's cabinet, Kemoh Sesay penalized several journalists for reporting things he considered were false.
Sorie Fofona of Global Times said the following.
"When d APC came to power in 2007, Kemoh Sesay was d first Cabinet Minister to drag journalists to court for false publication. The Independent Observer alleged that he had built a house in less than one year in office. The paper’s managing editor, Jonathan Leigh and his deputy, Bai Bai Sesay were charged to court. Kemoh Sesay appeared in court to prosecute them. I was one of d people asked by SLAJ to negotiate d release of our colleagues. I went and met Kemoh in his house to beg him to drop d matter. All he wanted was a retraction and an apology. He got both. The matter ended. Let my good friend Kemoh Sesay swallow humble pie and apologize and retract his vacuous rants against the President of the Republic. The President is a good man. He has a forgiving spirit. He is not a vindictive leader. Kemoh appears frail and unwell. Let d President forgive him on humanitarian grounds. After all, the President has seen worse things in d hands of his haters and detractors. But he has always emerged whiter than white. Let Kemoh Sesay do the right and decent thing by apologizing and retracting his reckless and irresponsible statements. That’s what a decent man should do. And Kemoh Sesay is expected to do just that. Some of us will continue to appeal to President Bio to forgive Kemoh Sesay in d" name of God.
