Presidential Spokesman Meets Pressmen

By: Mohamed Sannoh - Strategic Communications Unit - MIC

Sierra Leone's Minister of the North-Western Region who also now doubles as the Presidential Spokesman Honourable Alpha Kanu has had his first official engagement with newsmen since his new assignment on Thursday August 18th, 2022 during the weekly government press briefing hosted at the conference room of the Ministry of Information and Communications.

The new Presidential Spokesman informed the press that President Bio has a positive vision for Sierra Leone, and that is why Government is embracing Inclusive and Collaborative Governance. He said that there have been economic challenges the world over and that Sierra Leone's case was not an exception. He however stated that people should be appreciative of the strides that Government is making, noting that  Sierra Leoneans are resilient people.

Hon. Alpha Kanu further spoke on the ugly incident of August 10th, 2022 where a group of unruly and lawless characters attempted to overthrow President Bio's  government. He said it was not surprising that government has labelled such persons as terrorists, adding that there has been a strong and justified need to condemn such violent activities and assured all that perpetrators will be brought to book. 

The Presidential Spokesman also talked about President Bio's unification drive especially in the area of appointing qualifed Sierra Leoneans from all tribes and districts across the country. He said that the New Direction Government of President Bio is worth celebrating and appreciating. 

Hon. Alpha Kanu advised that divisive agendas and political fallacies should be avoided in such times, noting that what matters at a time like this is to support government in achieving results that will bring about sustained growth and development to Sierra Leone.

The Presidential Spokesman ended the conference by assuring the media that his doors are always available and open to and for members of the press.

Adding to the narrative, Sierra Leone's Minister of Information and Communications, Hon. Mohamed Rahman Swaray said that negativities should be discouraged in times like these and called on all persons to condemn illegality.

Dr John Lahai drops a real clanger...lecturers react

Evidence has surfaced that contradicts one of John Idriss Lahai's claims. And, as I've already stated, it's a clear sign that not everything he writes is true. He is doing the right thing, but depending entirely on rumor may jeopardize his kindness to Sierra Leone. Brima Ronnie Kargbo, a youthful and charismatic Sierra Leonean who works for NATCOM as the Director of Administration and Human Resource Management Director, was featured in a publication by John Idriss Lahai. In an exact paraphrase of his "nemakui" English writing skills, Lahai claimed: "Brima Ronnie Kargbo indeed started his Bachelor's degree studies at Njala University. It is also true that he abandoned the course halfway and moved to the UK (this was during the latter part of the civil war: 1996/1997-ish). As such, what is not true, and for which Njala University should investigate (to verify my claim) and, thereafter, sue Brima Ronnie Kargbo for forgery of their certificate (a
