Although it is very obvious to keen observers that the Minister of Finance, Dr. Kaifala Marah spells his name differently from the Kelfala Marah requested by the Anti-Corruption Commission ( ACC) to appear before it in connection with the Ebola Audit report released by the Auditor-General’s report, it is necessary for the sake of emphasis and further clarification to draw our readers’ attention to the fact that the ACC order has nothing to do with the honourable gentleman, Dr. Kaifala Marah, Sierra Leone’s Minister of Finance . The two individuals are different.
DR. KAIFALA MARAH
It was brought to our notice that the Minister of Finance, Dr. Marah, raised concerns that somebody pointed out to him that his name appeared in an ACC list published by Cocorioko. It is worthy of note that we only published the press release exactly as sent to the media by the ACC.
However, because the two names are susceptible to being interlinked by unsuspecting persons not taking note of the differences in the spellings of the first names and to help erase any concerns and misconceptions that may arise about the real identity of the individual summoned by the ACC, it may be necessary to clarify that the Kelfala Marah involved is not the Minister of Finance, Dr. Kaifala Marah.
Thanks for your attention.
