Following the suspension of the mayor,   Saa Emerson Lamina and other top officials of the Koidu New Sembehun City Council (KNSCC), the councillors of wards within the city municipality have on Wednesday 2nd March, 2016 elected Councillor Aiah Bartholomew Boima Komba and Councillor Veronica Kumba Dauda as the new acting Mayor and new acting Deputy Mayor of KNSCC respectively.

 

The electoral process was transparent as councillors from the two main political parties across the country participated in it. The process was opened by SLPP Councillor Musa Fakaigbor. Councilor Esther Fasuluku served as the chief returning officer of the electoral process.

People from all walks of life were present. This included the two Paramount Chiefs whose chiefdoms make up the City, as well as other Chiefs.


Meanwhile, the suspended mayor has confirmed to this medium that he will accept his ongoing suspension in good faith. He says he is however confident that the proposed investigation will exonerate him.

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.


In addition, the Local Government ministry has in a press release issued a statement countering insinuations flying around and even direct false accusations about witch hunt against the suspended Mayor of KNSCC.
