The SLPP Delegation touring the various branches of the party abroad scored a victory in the United States of America when they succeeded in restoring peace and sanity to the chaotic Washington DC Branch of the party, after a long, all-night meeting yesterday.
Our reporter was present and he sent us this preliminary report :
VICTORY FOR 8 MEMBER SLPP DELEGATES IN AMERICA, AS THE LONG AND SOMETIMES EXPLOSIVE WASHINGTON, DC. BRANCH DISPUTE PEACEABLY RESOLVED
In a meeting that lasted for several hours at the residence of the SLPP Secretary General, Mr. Jacob Jusu Saffa, the long and sometimes explosive dispute that resulted into the formation of two factions in the Washington DC SLPP Branch has finally been peaceably resolved.
According to our reliable source in Maryland, the two bitter opponents, Mr. Ben Silla and Mr. Matthew Margao apologized to each other and shook hands to the applause of members present. Mr. Silla and Mr. Margao will not be candidates for either the Washington Metropolitan Chapter elections or the National SLPP Chairmanship elections. Mr. Jonathan Lebbie states that new candidates will now contest for those positions. (More to Follow )
