His enmity with Berewah led him to create his own party. People could have waved him away but with 10 parliamentary seats he is still a force to reckon with. He has the power to make or break. His declaration of support for the APC was universally acclaimed. He made the best calculations at the best time.
He died of mysterious circumstances. The sherbro man who devoted his time, effort, strength, ideas and all other resources just to save Salone and reinstate the SLPP regime. The stigma of his reward is still looming over the SLPP and the backlash is still felt in all SLPP marrow. Such stigma compounded by the restlessness of his soul has resulted to a jinx which will ever remain with the SLPP and his being converted into a sacrificial lamb for no good reason but selfishness and insecurity of Solo Bee and a few others will ever haunt the SLPP.
THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY
As disgruntled and dismayed as they are with the worst performances of a regime ever in living memory are hell-bent in seeing a change in regime. All aid of theirs disappeared into the SLPP black hole with no convincing explanation.
According to renowned polls like Reuters and Gallup, the APC candidate who was widely perceived to be an underdog in the race and now a frontrunner, will soundly trounce the SLPP candidate like never before and the population sampled have a burning desire for change.
This stigma is still haunting the SLPP. Many people believe the act has been gradually emerging in some parts of Salone with only a few reports made. Now everyone is scared that any more chance given to the SLPP will lead to a total resurgence of cannibals.
This is also another cause for concern. There have been a lot of reports during the past years. People have been disappearing inexplicably.
THE NEW APC
Tony Blair came up with the New Labour concept and it worked big time. Judging from their performance in the first round there is not a single doubt that it has worked big time too for the new APC. The new APC has a new charismatic leader whose slate is one of the cleanest in the world and whose political presence is unprecedented and unmatched. The tainted veterans are now a thing of the past.
During the two past elections Kabba had two distinct advantages; one he was a compromise candidate in that he was a muslim with ties to the north and two he was new in view of the fact that he had never participated in politics before. In the former of the two advantages, the muslims saw him as a chance to have the first muslim head of state and voted en masse irrespective of region or tribe and in the latter people saw as hope thinking that he was an incorruptible new broom. The support of Thaimu in 1996 was a classic example of the expectations. There was an overwhelming support that saw Kabba catapulted to power. It was clear that people did not vote for the SLPP but for Kabba! But after 10 years we saw the worst and started crying “crucify him!”All the people’s dreams, the people’s expectations, the people’s confidence evaporated with unprecedented suddenness. I don’t need to mention why.
The future of Salone became the most neglected by the SLPP regime. When it was the SLPP’s plan to destroy the youths due to insecurity or just a modus operandi to take Salone to the pre-colonial times only God knows. The forlorn, disgruntled, irate and abused youths become sick and tired of the system and have become so resolute in yearning for a change and have full confidence in the APC.
THE REBEL WAR SECRET
To some it may seem ridiculous, to some it may sound inflammatory or inciting while to some it is the plain truth. It is getting clearer everyday that the SLPP was behind the rebel war taking into cognizance the utterances before the first round and their actions during the run-up to the run-off. If we go back to history, it all started with the Dorgborwusui movement in Pujehun and one should not be surprised that the rebels entered Salone through the east. The SLPP prior to the rebel war was almost a thing of the past and the only war to get back power was to terrorise the peace-loving people of Salone.The people are determined to make them pay for their

Comrade Bai Bureh,
You analysis are in place and worth commending. The clock is ticking slowly and the day will soon dawn to the disappointment of the SLPP. Anyhow, politics will never divide us as the SLPP party has been doing to indigenes of Sierra Leone. The rule of thumb is we will need to re-educate these SLPP brothers and sisters of ours that we leave in a mordern world where egocentrism, individualism, and ethocentrism are things of the past.
