The recently released Publisher of For Di People newspaper, Paul Kamara has expressed thanks and appreciation to the Publisher of Cocorioko online newspaper, Rev. Wilfred Kabs-Kanu, the paper’s local correspondent in Freetown, Chernor Ojuku Sesay, the entire Cocorioko team and most especially to those “Patriots” who contributed towards his health fund.
Mr. Kamara was speaking at his Pademba Road office where the sum of $700 (seven hundred United States Dollars) was presented to him by Chernor Ojuku Sesay in the presence of his staff.
Mr. Kamara said though some might consider the amount as small, but to him he considers it as the most valuable thing that has happened in his life.
“I don’t even know the contributors. But for the fact that they show concern over my poor health suffered as a result of my unjust incarceration is a sign that they appreciate what I stand for-and that is for the people to know the truth,” he said.
Mr. Kamara urged journalists to be steadfast in their jobs and stand for the people to know the truth no matter the consequences.”They hate the truth because they are corrupt and anyone who is determine to expose their corrupt acts is regarded as an enemy, but that must not drive you away from the profession”, he stated
