A chat on the SLPP’S big mistake


 
(In response to Hashim Daboh on the Cocorioko Forum )
 
By Foday Mansaray
 
This was a disgruntled  breed of soldiers who were court Martialled  and dismissed just like Chief Norman. They had this idea of wrecking Sierra Leone with the sole intention of restoring the  SLPP. 
Kabba,  like Berewa,  is the same breed of people who is  knowingly aware  that the SLPP  is on the wrong side of history but still pushing against the grain hoping to glide to victory.
 
All these people sat and ate  at  the same table for years. How do you think they maneuvered a palace coup against Stresser to install Madaa Bio?  It was the master plan they brokered with Sankoh because that was his nephew. Sankoh had broken  out of the Gaddafi doctrine and as you can see the government is still much in line with those policies. Fundamentalist like Gaddafi have come to Sierra Leone to rip us of  our wealth but  he is always disguising himself as a savior . Why was he not put   on trials for crimes against Sierra Leone? How much diamond did he get in exchange for all these support to Berewa. ? 
How many people did Berewa eliminate viciously to get to the SLPP nomination? To name a  few : Margai, Demby and Chief Norman and  your famous John Leigh,  my most admired SLPP supporter. This guy will not stop at anything  to become President even for one day.
 
It is painful for most of us who go to Sierra Leone like traveling  to NY or DC. We do it honorably because we still believe and hope to see the day you can board a plane from JFK to Freetown in 6 hours in time to shop and be back in the USA the same day. That day will come when clean drinking water once again will become a theme of the past. That day will come when Education will be free like when I went to Services Primary and Secondary School. That day will come when you fly over Freetown and  you  think you are flying over the city that never sleeps (New York).That day will come when Sierra Leone will join the ranks FROM underdeveloped to developing countries such as Ghana, South Africa and Nigeria’s Abuja and Ivory Coast.
 
To accomplish any ambitious plans to rebuild Sierra Leone, you need sober- minded and motivated patriotic  leaders. I can assure you and everyone that Ernest koroma will transform Sierra Leone because he has the business savvy which Sierra Leonean leadership lacks.   We were told learning is better than silver and gold .Rest assured that if it means crossing over to SLPP , PMDC or Independence to get the best of the best of  Sierra Leoneans  ,  that is what Ernest Koroma  is going to do. 

 
At seventy four,  Berewa’s  health is not so good. His body and mind are  failing and  this is not the way Sierra Leone should be treated. The SLPP made a wrong choice. They cannot force Berewa down our throat in broad day light. I am not talking because I am supporting APC. I am talking because we are at the end of the rope  requesting for handouts which include massive accumulations of debt undisbursed from African Development Bank and nothing has been presented to us. There are no structures and  nothing tangibles to hold on to. How can you support a govt like that? We- to name a few  of us , including myself, Shamsu Deen, Obai Taylor Kamara, Victor Fakondo, Alex Mansaray, Ben Jalloh, Dauda Bangura , Isha Dyfan–
and many  Sierra Leoneans,   worked tirelessly to institute sanctions to restore Kabba in Power .Was it worth it?. The answer is No. But what was worth it was we truly supported democracy and that is the same tool we are going to use to send Kabba and Berewa to their safe retirement at Banana Island. Your new Paradise in Africa is  West of the Atlantic. 

 
Come to Sierra Leone After August 11th 2007. You will see the endless determination of ordinary sierra Leonean and even the dead will rise again to say  Amen
