Laudable Moves of Social Welfare Minister in Moyamba & Bo Di Laudable Moves of Social Welfare Minister in Moyamba & Bo Districts

This writer was part of the media team who traveled with high-powered Government delegation from Ministry of Social Welfare to Southern Province last weekend. Director of Social Welfare, Southern Province director, Heads of the ministry's Moyamba and Bo offices as well as senior officials responsible for women and children all accompanied Minister Dr. Sylvia Blyden as she went about her duties.


It was delight on faces of residents of Kori Chiefdom in Moyamba when Minister Blyden told them that she was there to help push social welfare development led by Kori indigenes. That she fully well realised that Kori was an SLPP stronghold within a constituency which voted 86% against APC in 2012 but that her boss, His Excellency President Koroma has shown to the world that for this APC Government, development is a national concept and not a political tool.

 

Then we moved to Bo District campus of Njala University where, by visiting the recently discharged Njala student who was allegedly shot with bullets by Police, she displayed the reason why she is easily one of the best Social Welfare Ministers this country has ever had. It was the student who revealed the Minister had also visited him in hospital when he was allegedly first shot by Police and got admitted. He looked so proud and pleased to be receiving a second visit from her accompanied by her officials. Such beautiful show of care from a Government Minister. I returned to Freetown feeling so proud as a citizen. Place see below.


Laudable Moves of Social Welfare Minister in Moyamba & Bo

By: Moyamba MSWGCA

 

Hon. Minister Sylvia Blyden in Southern Province - from the Colourful launching of the Kori Family Development Association on Saturday 15th April 2017, where the Minister danced barefoot with Bondo women including SLPP parliamentarian Hon Gladys Gbappy Brima to her courtesy visit of Morlu at his dormitory in Njala Bo Campus - just as he was discharged from Hospital today. She was accompanied by NUSS President Osman Bikal and other MSWGCA officials like Social Welfare Director shown handing cash over to Morlu whilst Bikal looks on. This is the Minister’s second visit to Morlu. First visit to him was over 2 weeks back when she went to check him whilst admitted at Bo hospital. Mr. Morlu says he has been overwhelmed with the kindness from government especially through the visible visits by a high profile Minister. Morlu is the Njala student who was initially reported dead after he suffered bullets shot into his abdomen during the Njala students unrest last month in Bo.

 

Also shown is the Minister with SLPP PAOPA Lawyer Anthony Brewah in his Taiama compound where she paid him a courtesy call.
