SLPP nominates former Tonkolili District Council Chairman for district council.

Former Tonkolili District Council Chairman Joins SLPP, Nominated For District Council 

By Richmond B Tholley

The former Chairman of the Tonkolili District Council and a senior member of the All People's Congress party from Tonkolili District have joined the ruling Sierra Leone's People Party.

Alusine Abdulai Sesay better known as Kamathor has also been selected and nominated by the SLPP to run for the Chairperson in the Northern District candidate.

In a letter to the leadership of the party, Sesay resigned from the APC a few months ago for reasons he says are personal. He served as the Tonkolili District Council Chairman under the All People's Congress from 2012 - 2018 and was the party's regional Youth leader. 

In 2018, his relationship with the party leadership in Tonkolili especially the former District Chairman and Sierra Leones's former Education Minister - Dr Minkilu Bah of blessed memory became bitter. During an APC District Executive election in Magburaka town, Sesay and other senior party members from Tonkolili were mercilessly beaten and lucked in a police cell.

Multiple unconfirmed reports indicated the former District Council Chairman was beaten by some brutal henchmen of the late Dr Bah, and it was he who ordered his men because the victims opposed most of his decisions. 

In an interview with this writer immediately after he is nominated as an SLPP candidate for the Tonkolili District Council in the 2023 elections, Kamathor said, he joined the SLPP because he believes it's the only party that accepts people irrespective of their background. 

President Bio, he said, has proven to be an honest leader with a vision to change Sierra Leone. He called on the people to vote for President Bio and the SLPP for sustainable development.

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. His activity came to light after it was found that numerous Sierra Leoneans had received honorary PhDs from a Waterloo, Western Rural District postsecondary institution that was not accredited. 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
