Big Fish incident, a lesson for Sierra Leoneans

Big Fish incident, a lesson for Sierra Leoneans By: Kembay Those always clamouring for War after seen yesterday random shooting on Charlotte and Lightfoot Boston Streets in Freetown by a desperado should now know such is just a tip of an ice bag in a warfare.  Big Fish after forcefully snatching, the riffle from the female police officer didn't go on looking out for APC or SLPP but was determine to shoot at anyone who dare stand his way irrespective of your political loyalty, Religious trait, tribal or Regional connection.  The few minutes he spent with the gun while moving up an down, saw almost all the streets in CBD deserted with everyone indoor except the security forces who were positioning themselves at intersections point to end the menace.  What caused the desertion and the indoor staying was that everyone knew that either by mistake or intention coming in contact with Big Fish at that moment, would have been your end. That is

"Speaker has no power to adjudge contempt" JFK

JFK, an APC legal luminary, has criticized the Honorable Speaker of Parliament's ruling in a tweet. Joseph Fitzgerald Kamara    "Sierra Leone's speaker of parliament has taken tough action against three MPs who were involved in riotous behavior in the well of parliament."

Parliamentary privilege has been suspended for three APC lawmakers.

At its sitting on Wednesday, 23rd November 2022, Parliament had before it a Government Motion for the laying on the Table of the House two Statutory Instruments Nos. 13 and 14 of 2022 respectively published in the Sierra Leone Gazette on 16th November 2022. These Instruments contained Regulations by the Electoral Commission of Sierra Leone (ECSL) designed to give effect to the District Block Representation System, a form of Proportional Representation enshrined in section 38A of the Constitution of Sierra Leone 1991.

Stay off Drugs, says IGP to FPU and Recruits

    Stay off Drugs, says IGP to FPU and Recruits By: Kembay Sierra Leone Peacekeeping and Law Enforcement Academy (SILEA), Hastings Campus, Friday 18 November, 2022.  Addressing both the Formed Police Unit (FPU) and the recruits, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr.William Fayia Sellu has placed emphasis on zero tolerance for drugs in the SLP.  In a stern warning, the Chief Executive Officer of the SLP noted that, the day any of them is caught with drugs, that very day he or she will leave, there is no compromise to that. Medically, drugs last in urine for two months, so the Police Chief therefore informed them that there is going to be a spontaneous drugs test. To the FPU, he disclosed that while they await the final stage of assessment, they would be deployed in various areas within the city to help police the festive season.  With medical underway, he reminded them that they still have not completed the requirements that would qualify them for the Peacekeeping mission.  "

"The Registration Data favours us" APC claims

APC operatives conducted a shady analysis of the ECSL's recently released registration data. The claimed that the ECSL purposefully removed approximately 257,000 people from the list, and that despite this, registration figures still favor them by approximately 600,000. In my sad mood, I burst out laughing when I saw the analysis. I told myself that these people would never be able to stop deceiving themselves. The ECSL stated unequivocally that the data in question (257123) is duplicated. That is, data that was entered into the system multiple times. The claimed 600,000 leading difference in favor of the APC must have come from a kush consumer with Ye Dominion Ye qualification. That writer simply added figures from North and Northwest to the number of Western Areas without taking into account the necessary determinants. The APC has a clear majority in the western area, but when considering the realistic percentage (70% win) that determines a str
