*APC Tribalism and Regionalism at its Highest Peak in Sierra Leone*
All institutions in this country is presently been headed by northerners. Without APC party card no one from the southeast would be tolerated to even dream about you becoming institutional head no matter your professionalism, job experience or qualifications. The recent case in point is the Civil jobs job advertisement for specifically the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Recruitment was strictly prohibited for southeastern according to the insider source, only *party pekins* from the northern region were given the jobs. This is a clear recipe for chaos in the future, job intake, especially for civil service should be based on qualifications and merits dovetail with the required specifications rather than party card or being born from the Northern Region.Again, the APC has appointed Amara Kargbo as Deputy Director General II at NASSIT. Mr Kargbo hails from Bumbuna, northern Sierra Leone and he’s the nephew of Hon IB Kargbo and younger brother of Dr Brima Kargbo, Chief Medical Officer. APC is unrelent about their tribal appointments. During the SLPP days, the leadership of NASSIT, like other institutions, was regionally balanced, which is now seen as a curse to the south-eastern dominated SLPP. NASSIT was headed by Edmund Koroma from Port Loko, deputy Gibril Sankoh, Fullah town, Sahr Ngaingai- Kissy from Kailahun with Dr Lawrence Kamara and Andrew Keili as Chairs-Mendes.
Today NASSIT is headed by Joseph Mans, elder brother of Elizabeth Mans. Joe Mans is 65 years, deputy Amara Kuyateh from Yoni Banana, and now Amara Kargbo, deputy 2 from Bumbuna. Many believe the most senior director, Mr Mohamed Gondoe, from Bonthe is not given the job because he’s Mende. When Mohamed became director in 2004 both the current DG Joseph Mans and Amara Kargbo were all junior managers at the Trust. So if you are Mende now in Sierra Leone and not a declared APC RIP.
The tribal appointments of APC is not unique to NASSIT
At NRA unlike when John Karimu Mende and Osman Barrie, Fullah were the heads, that institution is effectively controlled by the north. CG Haja Kallah, Makeni, Income Tax Commissioner Ibrahim Sorie, Kambia, head of customs, Santos Kamara. Makeni. If you to Sierratel, BSL, 3 ministers at finance northern region, marine time administration, SLRA, road maintenance fund, universities, airport and water quay, lotto, national commission of privation, the courts, attorney General’s office. Pa Kabbah appointed 3 attorney generals, Eke, Carew with Berewa the only Mende for them Serry Kamal, Frank Kargbo and JFK, all from Makeni. Look at RTC, NPA, commercial bank, they have asked the MD, George Taylor to leave in April because he’s Mende from Njala. Natcom, they handicapped Senesie Kallon and he’s leaving at the end of this month was only confirmed as DG in November 2016. Rokel Commercial Bank, Guma valley, HFC, even the most powerful ministry of finance were administratively headed by northerners-Samaura Kamara, Bombali and Sheku Sesay, Kambia, the lost goes on. For business, don’t mention, if you are known pro SLPP business, RIP. Sam King services dead, Kona Lodge dead, Gento, Hullay, Kabbah Kali, bagging multi million dollar vehicle contracts, the high level of this croniesm and cabalism’ will destroy this country if not properly checked.
