Mr. Sunil Saigal, there are 14 female Paramount Chiefs; not 11
The United Nations is a highly respected international body and its officers should ensure they do all possible to avoid dragging the UN through the mud. This brings me to how the UN Country Representative in Sierra Leone, Mr. Sunil Saigal was speaking yesterday February 28th 2017 up at Parliament during a certain event.

International funding over the national interest: National Elections Watch (NEW) to Apologize to the Nation
When DFID recently announced a whooping 5million Euros (about three million Pounds) for the local consortium of elections monitoring group, National Elections Watch (NEW), they (DFID) tied the disbursement of that funding to the commencement of the 2018 elections. This trick by DFID has caused some desperation amongst our compatriots in the NEW.

Defending March 7th 2018 Elections Date
I have noticed illogical constitutional interpretations and baseless legal arguments being thrown around by persons who deliberately are misinforming the world that the recent pronouncement of President Koroma about the date for next year’s elections is unconstitutional. Whilst no President is immune from making the occasional human mistakes, in this case the President’s announced date is 100% constitutional. Let me explain.

Alim Kamara is an exceptional hip-hop artist from the UK
Alim Kamara is a talented rapper, storyteller and poet who came from humble beginnings in Sierra Leone but grew up in London where his drive to inspire was influenced by society and his African background. His lyrics and poetry content evokes empowerment and liberation. His music crosses all boundaries appealing to the masses, and his words flows delicately into the minds of the listener.

Rebels or Children?
Come one come all my people; the Mystery Man has got some important announcements to make today. I have a story that happened one thousand years ago in the Mystery Village that never existed in real life. I was reminded about this story when I recently witnessed actions of some children against their political head.

HON. BLYDEN SPEAKS AGAIN ON PARLIAMENT & LE707 MILLION
February 6th 2017: My attention has been drawn to yet another attempt to defame me by those who are scared of my growing popularity in Sierra Leone. However, our people are not fools. They know what's happening. Now, when they read a new 'scandal' on BLYDEN, they just shake their heads, smile and cheer me on to continue doing my noble work. But as Obama has warned politicians, all social media propaganda must be debunked.

Something More Than Gold: A Priceless Mindset

I CAME, I SAW, HE CONQUERED
On the 21st of April 2016, I returned home from the United States; it was my first time in Sierra Leone since President Ernest Bai Koroma (EBK) was elected as Head of State of the Republic of Sierra Leone. I was extremely emotional and equally excited about the changes and progress for our beloved country. As an American with dual citizenship, Sierra Leone was personally my first country of choice.

Sierra Leone: Mamie Sam’s Surgery; A Case of Julius Spencer turning a Criminal to an Hero
I deliberately had not commented on the situation revolving around the hijacking and subsequent surgical operation on 13 years old Mamie Sam, who was identified with an enlarged breast. I chose not to comment because I felt the entire situation surrounding the criminal abduction of the child is centered on a personality whom I consider to be functional but not well educated on legal issues.

President Koroma governs Sa. Leone by example as he travels on economy class to and from China
Demonstrating the true trappings of a good and credible leader, President Ernest Bai Koroma showed the world that he is governing Sierra Leone by example when he flew all the way to China and back on economy class during his recent State visit to the Republic of China , to lend meaning to the austerity period in the country.

Why is PEC Deceiving Public?Trumpeting Deceit and Propaganda against EDSA and the Energy Ministry is Distasteful.
Early this week, the public was stunned by the emergence of a rather strange Alliance, not within the SLPP, not of any political parties; this alliance is of Civil Society! Yes, out of the blues, the Alliance of Civil Society on Energy ( Never heard of this) was inaugurated this week, through a press release babbling about things they know little or nothing about.

RENAISSANCE MOVEMENT AND THE SLPP: the familiar hidden hand of a political mission
Borrowing a few words from Wikipedia, Civil Society Organizations are an "aggregate of non-governmental organizations and institutions that manifest interests in promoting the welfare and will of citizens." Civil society includes the family and the private sphere, referred to as the "third sector" of society, distinct from government, business and partisan politics.

Ferdinand Nahimana, Hassan Ngeze and Jean-Bosco Barayagwiza; the most popular journalists in Rwanda prior to, and later orchestrators of the 1994 Genocide that claimed the lives of more than an estimated UN figure of eight hundred thousand (800,000) people within a period of one hundred (100) days of bloodbath.

A Fidgety Opposition and The Quest For Nationhood
Across the globe, even oil producing countries are removing subsidies on fuel and other petroleum products. It is basically a global drive to maximize revenue generation and ensure fiscal stability in the face of the global economic meltdown.

SLPP and failed Conspirators against a Popular President
The first Walk to Work protest took place in Uganda on 11 April 2011, and was organised by the pressure group Activists for Change (A4C), which included the Forum for Democratic Change, the party of three-time presidential candidate Kizza Besigye. It was a protest whereby Ugandans denied their right to protest, used innovative thinking to gather in large numbers under the guise of walking to work.

Kamarainba Might not be Donald Trump but US Election is a Lesson for APC
Donald Trump is widely perceived as a man who fought his battle alone. Despite not having any major endorsement, he strived his way through all political difficulties, and at the end he was elected as the 45th President of the great United States of America (USA). Similarly, this is a genuine attribute of the chairman and leader and now 2018 Presidential candidate of the Alliance Democratic Party (ADP), Mohamed Kamarainba Mansaray who also fights his battles alone.
