Koidu city is peaceful at the moment as members of the Sierra Leone people party & other well meaning Konos are putting hands together to welcome the heavyweight champion, former Army strong man & president in waiting Rtd Brigadier Maada Bio to Koidu city on Saturday 21st January, 2017. The new SLPP Executive in Kono district headed by mammy Sia Elizabeth Tongu & her team of visionaries are in high spirit to welcome the president in waiting come 2018 election Rtd Brigadier Julius Maada Bio.
A middle age woman, Sia Sinah a resident at Sinah Town told me in tears, that Konos have been marginalized for nine years now by president Ernest Bai Koroma led APC government & we’ll let the APC knows we’re not fools. She also recalled the undemocratic & forceful removal from office of our kono tribesmen including the elected VP Sam Sumana & Mayor Saa Emerson Lamina. The 55 years old woman told me that from time memorial till today, the APC she knew before is the same APC & nothing change at all, they’re not democratic & have no respect for elected offices. She concluded by praying for the elected VP Sam Sumana & Mayor Saa Emerson Lamina, she asked God to guide & protect them both.
Until then Konos have made up their mind about the coming elections from the day president violated the constitution and went ahead to flagrantly remove an elected Mayor.
