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

The Gbenseh chiefdom has given president Bio their full support


Gbenseh chiefdom authorities endorsed president Bio for a second term


The Traditional Rulers in Gbense Chiefdom, Kono District; including the Acting Paramount Chief, Aiah M. Kamanda; the Acting Chiefdom Speaker, Sahr Gbondo; the Chiefdom Mammy Queen, Finda Sinah; the Chiefdom Administrator,  Pa Daramy; the Chiefdom Youth Chairman, Aiah Joseph Mbayoh, have unanimously accepted and endorsed all the listed candidates of the SLPP in Kono District and have equally endorsed the second term bid of President Julius Maada Bio.

These senior traditional authorities were also joined by five of their Section Chiefs, including Sub Chiefs at a ceremony held at the Gbense Chiefdom Administrative Head Quaters in Koidu City. 

The candidates were presented to these Chiefdom authorities by the charismatic Kono District SLPP Chairman, Safea Leslie Moiwa, who made a brief but breathtaking recollection of some of the "game changing socioeconomic development programmes of the SLPP and President Bio in Kono District to include the initiative to give Kono District a University in order to correct the over 60 years of social injustice against Kono District and her sons and daughters; the construction of the 78 kilometre road, leading to the Guinea border in order to open up the district to international trade; the construction of a Maternal Center of Excellence and the installation of an electricity grid that has ensured 24 hours electricity supply to Koidu City and its immediate surroundings in the immediate term.

Chairman Moiwa described the move by his SLPP and President as "a tip of the iceberg" and assured his country-people that the next Maada Bio administration, "will embarrass the Kono people with tangible and life-changing socioeconomic development programmes", not only for the immediate benefit of the people, but that they will be long-standing and generational.

Also present were Amb. Mbaimba Baryoh, Dr. Robert Moigua, Elder Sahr Sundu, Former SLPP Chairman, Mr. M.A.T. Foday and Mr. Mohamed Jabbie, among several other Kono dignitaries.

Chairman of the ceremony, Acting PC; A.M. Kamanda took time to outline the barrage of reasons, which he maintained, "are their collective rationale" for endorsing President Bio's second term bid and that these also include "the special respect" he has demonstrated for the people of Kono District.

"For the past five years, President Bio as our son-in-law, showed us maximum respect and did not at any point-in-time show disrespect to us, or caused us to be molested, harassed or intimidated," Chief Kamanda pointed out.

Amb. Mbaimba Baryoh, took turns to outline the numerous successes which President Bio and his Government have registered to accord Sierra Leone the respect and viability it needs to do business with multilateral and other lending institutions across the world.

He maintained that these successes have not only guaranteed Sierra Leone's viability, but that they have restored to the country the dignified respect it deserves as a sovereign country among the community of nations of the world.
He further mentioned that the compact state the country has reached in the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) of the United States of America, the expungtion of the seditious criminal libel law, the abolition of the death penalty, the enactment of the GEWE Act, and the Free Quality Education, a key component of President Bio's human capital development agenda, which among other policies, targeted school entry and school retention of pupils.

The SLPP Constituency Campaign Chairman, Musa Quima, also unravelled the successes of the Government and his willingness to wholehearted work in the interest of the Party. He described Hon. Emerson Lamina, who tops the Kono District SLPP Block List, as his elder brother for whom he has much admiration for and holds in high esteem.

In his remarks, Mayor Komba Matthew Sam asserted that former President Ernest Bai Koroma and Mr. Charles Francis Margai were the key players in the betrayal of former Vice President, Chief Samuel Sam Sumana and the people of Kono.
He therefore warned the people of Kono not to countenance the APC-PMDC merger, describing it as "a merger of deceptionists and betrayers" and called on them to vote for the SLPP.

Hitting the penultimate nail on the coffin of APC and PMDC, Hon. Saa Emerson Lamina reminded his authorities how Dr. Samura Kamara has insulted the collective dignity and esteem of the people of Kono by equating the whole of Kono Distict and its unique people and culture to small chiefdoms like Sanda-Tanderen and Gbonkolonken.
According to Hon. Lamina, that analogy by Dr. Samura Kamara was "misplaced and unfortunate" and that it is a clear indication of how he intends to trivialize the issue of Kono District and its people if the APC party wins and he becomes President.

On Charles Francis Margai, Hon. Lamina equated him to the dying horse 'Boxer' in George Orwell's political satire, "Animal Farm" who haven being over used by the shrewd pigs on the farm and haven noticed his shrinking power to work, and was sickening, decided to sell him to the knackers at least to gain some benefit rather than leaving him in the farm to die. "Mr. Margai is in a political wilderness fumbling out a way for his political survival as he is on his way to political extinction. He is, like George Orwell's horse, Boxer, making his last political manoeuvering even as he is politically phasing in order to attach some modicum of political significance to his name," Hon. Lamina lashed out.

Hon. Lamina joked, that Mr. Margai could not afford to issue a single Councilor symbol in his home district, Moyamba, because that party is defunct, but he is out shouting about forming a meaningless coalition with some Kono people. He encouraged his kith and kin to discountenance Mr. Margai and his "balloon breeze" and consider voting for the SLPP President, Members of Parliament, the Mayor, the District Council Chairman and Councilors as a way of repositioning Kono District on the right side of socioeconomic development in the 21st Century.

Rev. Moses Tumbay introduced the dignitaries of the SLPP in grand style. 

The ceremony at its conclusion, was spiced with a scintillating SLPP song by the recently United Kono Artists Union reunited under the aegis of Hon. Emerson Lamina.

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
