SLPP insider tells Cocorioko a stunner
Thursday July 14, 2005
The Sierra Leone political scene will be set ablaze with disbelief within the next week or so as a rather surprising contender for the SLPP leadership and the Sierra Leone Presidency will be announced. A usually reliable SLPP insider yesterday put COCORIOKO in notice of the oncoming stunner that War Crimes indictee Hinga Norman will soon be entered as one of the candidates for the national throne.
Within the next 48 hours, the SLPP and the Registrar of the Special Court will receive notification of the Hinga Norman candidacy, according to the insider.
Calls made by this paper to the Spokesman of the Civil Defence Force ( CDF), Rev. Alfred Samforay, for clarification, have yet to be returned. But the insider spoke with confidence and insisted many times to COCORIOKO that he was not pulling anybody’s legs.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION.
