National Secretary General
President of SLAJ Kelvin Lewis’ Tribute To Late Ibrahim Samura
Ibrahim Samura is a journalist who speaks truth to power.
He’s fearless, insistent and he’ll continue asking his questions until he gets answers.
Samura is also a committed journalist. He’s very committed to SLAJ and that’s the reason we are here, opening a book of condolence for him.
Samura never knew he would not attend our forthcoming AGM 2018 in Kenema, because he had already paid his membership dues and delegate fee.
Although we had our differences in relation to the administration of SLAJ, Samura was respectful. Wherever we meet he would respectfully greet me as Mr. President. But whilst I was on this side, he would be on the other side of things.
Nevertheless, it’s necessary to have people like Samura who always have alternative views because their opinion is what pushes you to be a good leader. As a leader you would go all out to do your best to prove them wrong.
At the end of the day our Association means a lot to all of us.
Samura’s demise is a great loss to the journalism profession, SLAJ, the Guild of Editors, his entire family and the whole nation.
Many people are saying good things about him…
But if we are happy for life, we should not be displeased when death knocks.
Let us mourn with God in our hearts.
May his soul rest in perfect peace.
