The uncomfortable truth presently bandied around indicates that northerners are used as sacrificial lambs by the ruling Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) government.
Latest reports say the SLPP government of President Julius Maada Bio has paved the way for a new Paopa Chief Medical Officer called Dr. Amara Jambai, currently serving as the Deputy Chief Medical Officer II, to be promoted to the top job in the north.

From a reliable source, the Chief Minister Officer, Dr. Brima Kargbo and the Deputy Chief Medical Officer 1, Dr. Sarian Kamara will be sent on an indefinite leave to retirement which will automatically paved the way for Paopa’s own i.e. Dr. Amara Jambai to be catapulted in to the CMO position.
Dr. Jambai, a son of Kailahun District, was key in financing the Sierra Leone People’s Party in the past elections. Even though Dr. Amara Jambai is due to officially retire in December 2018, the SLPP are planning to move the goalpost in their favour even though Dr. Jambai didn’t have the required education to be the CMO.
The Paopa Juntacracy has also planned to send the Chief Nursing Officer, Mrs. Hussainatu Koroma, Dr. SAS Kargbo, Santigie Sesay, Yayah Conteh from the Integrated Project Administration Unit (IPAU) and the Head of Pharmacy Board, Mr. Wiltshire Johnson to an early retirement even though these distinguished personalities are in their late 40’s and early 50’s.
“From the look of things, securing a job under the New SLPP Direction isn’t no longer based on competency and proficiency but based on tribal and regional background,” an observer noted.
