The newly elected Parliamentary candidate of the All Peoples Congress in Constituency 049, Tonkolili District, has referred to rumours going viral that his election as the party's candidate for the June 2023 multi-tier elections was influenced by certain big guns in the party as baseless, unfounded and malicious. 

Rumours that Hon Aaron Koroma and other top party big guns interferes into the electioneering process started circulating immediately after the APC scribe was declared winner of the elections with 27 votes defeating seven other candidates.

Speaking over the phone with this reporter, the developmentally oriented politician, Abdul Augustus Kamason, said his election as the APC parliamentary candidate of Constituency 049 is as a result of his popularity and hard work.

The other reasons, he said, is because he has done something tangible for his people.

"Yes, I have pointers in almost every where in the constituency. Just go around and ask, people will tell you," Kamason said over the phone.

Contemporary politics, he said, isn't just about talking, but you have to impact the lives of people before coming out for political positions. 

Among the many developmental projects he has carried out in the communities of Constituency 049, the political and development mogul said, he has provided scholarships for University students in different Universities.

In the area of sports, Kamason said, he was on record for promoting football, the most popular game in the community,  and football clubs as well. 

His organisation, the Kamason Foundation has supported the growth of football and other sporting disciplines. 

Educationally, he said, his foundation has also provided lunch for school pupils taking both the BECE and NPSE and teachers inviligating the exams for the past years. 

"The foundation has also been providing transportation fare for school pupils who are leaving their communities for the NPSE and BECE," he said.

During the outbreak of the Corona scourge, my foundation provided Veronica buckets and preventive items and materials to communities to help fight the disease.

"My brother, I have done so many things for the people. For me, this is a payback time for what I have done over the years," Kamason added.

However, this medium contacted some residents of the community. Almost all of those reached described the APC politician as a colossus of development who has touched the lives of many people.

Dr. John Idriss Lahai, the whistle-blower for fake degrees is "Social Medially dead". If you recall, in the year 2022, Dr. John Idriss Lahai, a whistle-blower who exposed a phony degree, attracted the attention of every patriotic Sierra Leonean.

Even well-known Sierra Leoneans, including the previous Inspector General of Police, were given honorary PhDs by the university known as Dominion University. When it was determined that the aforementioned university lacks the integrity to grant such a credential, the IG subsequently declined the offer.

A scammer from Sierra Leone has been captured by Guinean police.

  The person in the picture is actually Abdulai Jalloh, despite the fact that he is identified as a lecturer from Njala University under the name of Dr. Kanu. In early January of this year, he posted in a WhatsApp group in Kambia that he had scholarship chances and could help people acquire government pin codes, among other things, but that the offer was only valid for those from the South and east.   Someone sent him NLe1,500 for overseas study without realizing he was a scammer.  The scammer claimed that the entire application process for the scholarship cost 3,000 New Leone.  Later, the contacted person realized that he was not who he had been representing himself to be, and he immediately blocked the victim of his syndicate.  He once more perpetrated the same crime against Molai, another individual, and someone else.  In the pretense of an international scholarship, he demanded 3000 New Leones from each person. He accepted the cash and fled without telling them where he was.  The m
