​POLITICAL PROSTITUTION: The switching of parties by self seeking politicians in Sierra Leone


Define as “Turncoats, party switchers, any action by politicians done obviously for self gain, fame and nothing else related to public service with favors or exchange perceived to be involved”. 
The switching of parties by self seeking politicians in Sierra Leone has become very rampant in recent years. It is clear that individuals who do these are more likely to project a “Paopa” philosophy than in the interest of public service. 
If one cannot work within a small group of people and resolve conflicts and move on, how can such personalities be able to be good team players in a whole country where there are many more conflicting groups and interests on various policy platforms? 
A demonstration of consistency, reliability, resilience and commitment to a course are important attributes to anyone who can successfully manage a public office. The demonstration of these attributes starts from within political parties. Conflict within a group is a necessary process to any normal system. It allows for the accommodation of different healthy debates on issues. 
What is happening now in various political parties signifies personalities who cannot manage a healthy opposition of ideas. The electorates must be educated to watch individuals who switch and question their objectives.
