Sierra Leone News : Kono’s Mayor shall Respect Suspension Slammed On Him

The suspended Mayor of Kono’s Koidu New Sembehun city council, has said he will accept his ongoing suspension in good faith. He says he is however confident that the proposed investigation will exonerate him.


Whilst speaking last night of March 1st 2016 on a phone call he initiated to this writer, Mayor Saa Emerson Lamina sounded very respectful of executive government authority and especially so for the person of His Excellency President Ernest Koroma. Throughout the interview, the young man took his time to express his full respect for the President.


He confirmed that he will not be making any more public utterances that appear to be challenging the decision to send him on suspension pending investigations into alleged financial misdeeds.


When asked if he had received his salary for February, the Mayor revealed that he actually has never received a single cent as salary since he was elected. He said this was a personal decision he took to refuse to collect a salary.


He said all his service as Mayor was done selflessly.


Meanwhile, the Local Government ministry which sent the Mayor on suspension so as to allow unhindered access to investigators looking into allegations of corruption in that council, has also yesterday issued a statement thus:


PRESS RELEASE: NO WITCH HUNT ON MAYOR LAMINA OF KOIDU NEW SEMBEHUN CITY COUNCIL


It has bec
ome very clear over the past few days that there are insinuations flying around and even direct false accusations about witch hunt against the suspended Mayor of KNSCC.


The Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development wishes to make it abundantly clear to the general public that it counts such insinuations and direct accusations as totally out of tune with the reality of the situation.


That the issue of Mayor Lamina’s suspension was entirely and solely triggered by internal issues within KNSCC is very clear not least as evidenced from two correspondences coming from the council.


Copies of the two correspondences are hereby produced for the general public to have a full insight into the origin of the matter.
