*Game Over For Miss Sylvia Blyden*
_*By:Mohamed Kamara (Orwamkami)*_
*1 February 2017.*
After the general public and some very senior officials of government saw through her dubious intentions for hosting a fake meeting with some Children Forum Network (CFN) members last Saturday, the Minister of Social Welfare Gender and Children’s’ Affairs, Miss Sylvia O Blyden, has once again re-focused her undesirable attention on her Deputy, Madam Rugiatu Neneh Turay.
In an article titled, *“NENEH RUGIATU TURAY IS A DEPUTY MINISTER BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT WANTED TO RESOLVE BAD BLOOD WITHIN THE APC IN LUNSAR”* Sylvia Blyden, using the name of her dependent Abdul Malik Bangura and in addition to insults and false accusations, wrote this:
*“The truth is Neneh wants to be Port Loko local government chairman in 2018 elections so she wants money to campaign. Her two NGOs called AIM and FAHP were to have received easy money if the. Honourable Minister Dr. Sylvia Blyden signs a document that would have granted some millions of dollars to flow through AIM and FAHP in the name of eliminating FGM Bondo initiation rites amongst adults.”*
We woke up this morning getting the shocking news, that once again our APC party has lost another of our councilors, Habib Kamara of Kaffu Bullom – Rest in Peace Comrade.
I have mentioned the late councilor to link his death to the article making the rounds about the alleged intentions of the Deputy Minister for the Port Loko District Council.
Even if such allegations or speculations are true, *Rugiatu Neneh Turay will deserve such an honor because she hardly ever misses paying last respect to deceased comrades from the Port Loko District.* As I type this report, she is at the funeral of our fallen comrade.
It is no secret that in 2012 Madam Turay was one of the aspirants for the Port Loko District Council and her interest to head the district council remains the same. *The appointment of Madam Turay makes the people of Port Loko very happy because of what she has done, in terms of development, care and compassion for the people and our party, the All Peoples Congress (APC).*
At a time when Dr Blyden was busy castigating the APC party, reining insults on our Leader and Chairman President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, Madam Rugiatu Neneh Turay the Activist NGO worker was busy campaigning and organizing for the triumph and victory of the APC.
In 1996 when *Dr Sylvia Blyden* was busy with the *RUF* *Madam Turayserved as party agent at the St. Augustine Primary School Tintafor, Lungi for the APC.* Her entire family were so scared that the Khaki Boys will attack their house because of the active role she played in the 1996 elections on behalf of the APC.
Although Madam Turay was in Conakry during the 2002 elections, she returned to register and voted for the APC party on elections day. There has never been an election in this country she has absent herself from.
*Madam Turay is not using her appointment to gain popularity, as Dr. Sylvia Olayika Blyden is now doing* and has she has accused Madam Turay of doing. *The name Rugiatu Neneh Turay is synonymous with a strong Anti FGM Campaigner, APC political prosperity, caring and respecting every citizen, particularly in the Port Loko District where she was born.*
Other than pointing fingers at others in attempts to distract attention from her bad behavior against innocent children, Miss Blyden should swallow her pride and openly apologies to the CFN children for her actions on 28th December 2016.
Miss Blyden’s attempt at fooling the general public by hosting a conference or dialogue with the CFN children last weekend, further reveals how mentally unstable she is. *She is now using Abddul Malik Bangura’s name to attack Madam Turay* because she dissociated herself from her stage managed meeting with some of the CFN children.
Readers may recall that Miss Blyden is a party to the conflict between the CFN children and herself, but she also shamelessly served as chairperson and moderator at the said meeting last week held at the Ministry conference. Each time the very bold and brilliant President and Vice President of CFN wanted to say something she does not like, she stopped them on their tracks.
*Because of bullying of the children, her Deputy Minister Madam Turay was left with no choice but to let the general public know the truth;* that she was not a party to the said melodrama staged by the substantive minister. I urge, the international community, Civil Society Groups and the Government of Sierra Leone to treat this matter very seriously.
Miss Sylvia Blyden must stop acting cowardly, *face the CFN children and publicly apologize to them.* The incident which took place at the MSWGCA on 28th December 2016 was well calculated. This medium is intimated that the ministry was like a jungle filled with cannabis and alcohol all around. The driver of SEA 001 (Byden’s vehicle) drove like the days of the NPRC takeover or when rebels were attacking Freetown.
Dr Sylvia Blyden has published many articles but she has failed to raise issues relating to her bad behavior. She continues to attack personalities using her criminal journalist skills will not help her this time around. She has succeeded in quieting many people who are embarrassed by her attacks *but she will fail this time on Deputy Minister Rugiatu Neneh Turay.*
The divided rule at the ministry must stop. I have visited that ministry more than all other Ministries and have concluded that Dr. Blyden is economical with the truth. I pity those who still believe in her articles. This medium is challenging Dr Blyden if she is sure of all her allegations against the Deputy Minister. *We challenge her to invite the Anti-Corruption Commission to investigate all financial records in the ministry.*
In our next publication, we will delve into the meat issue, her relationship with civil servants and the CFN issue. And there is plenty.
