Vickie Remoe demonstrates the use of free speech to Zainab Sheriff and others.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to watch Ms. #ZainabSheriff's emotional video posted on On April 10th. 😔😔😔

While I understood her frustration, I also noticed that she spread a lot of disinformation and misinformation about President Bio, President Koroma, and First Lady Mrs. Bio.

It is important to address the government as a whole when airing grievances, but it is not acceptable to call out individuals in government and accuse them of being killers without proof. It is also not right to accuse someone of being a party to something without evidence.

The police and military are a part of the government, and it is okay to use a general statement when addressing the government. However, if you call out someone by name and accuse them of murder on a public platform, you need proof to substantiate your claims. If you are a witness and you have evidence, then it is okay to call them out.

If you are quoting a source like Amnesty International (on lives lost on August 10 protest, Pa Demba Rd Prison riot, Tombo and Makeni incidents)make sure to cite those reports properly to protect your speech as already being in the public domain. No news sources or reports have said that the President has killed anyone or given orders for citizens to be killed. It is dangerous and wrong to spread such rumors (many of which come from deeply divisive political extremists).

We all have the right to free speech and expression, but it is our responsibility to use our platform in a lawful manner that does not harm others. As public figures, we should be careful about the language we use on and offline, especially during elections.

I hope that Ms. Zainab Sheriff is receiving all her rights and due process in police detention as a citizen of Sierra Leone. Counting on the professionalism of the Sierra Leone Police to put this matter to rest as soon as possible in a lawful manner so as to not further erode public trust between police, Gen Z and young Millennials who may not fully understand all the facts. 😔😔😔

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. Dominion University PHD award ceremony From this point on, Dr. John Idriss Lahai began to expose Sierra Leoneans who, in his opinion, had earned questionable academic credentials. He then began to draw attention from people from all

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
