Breaking News: SLPP Alliance of All Aspirants (AAA) died along with members.
On Monday 21st December 2015 at the Harry Yassaneh Hall, SLAJ Headquarters in Freetown, 11 Aspirants of the main opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) signed their political death warrant through the formation of an Alliance of All Aspirants (AAA).
KKY masterminded the formation of the Sierra Leone People Party (SLPP) Alliance of All Aspirants (AAA) to counter the most formidable aspirants, Dr Bio, it’s a miracle AAA lasted 14 months to a catastrophic political suicide of its members. Firstly, its unorthodox for political aspirants to gang up against another aspirant of the same party, notwithstanding that, well known political figures of the party haphazardly aligned themselves with an unknown candidate in the person of KKY as their leader. This single act was the final cyanide dosage they self-administered to ensure their political elimination in the forthcoming general elections.
Here is a popular quote relevant to this political mess wisely pioneered by KKY to ensure his political success “A fish rots from the head down” meaning, when a group fails, the leadership is the root cause. Earlier this year, AAA crumbled from top-down, starting with Chief Sumanoh Kapen, the chairman of the party who misrepresented the party on countless fronts, and even went out undermining the electoral processes he is charged to oversee and respect. Followed was the long awaited resignation of John Oponjo Benjamin, who did not only resigned but also completely distanced himself from AAA as if he never ever knew of the group’s existence. Now, Alpha Timba is accusing KKY of dishonesty and deception while the other members scramble to hopelessly reignite their independent political drive at the ninth hour.
Without questions, the AAA is dead and gone along with all those SLPP flagbearer aspirants who foolishly signed up as members. Aspirants such as Dr Andrew Keile, Munda Rogers, Alpha Timbo, Franklin Rogers, Dr. Francis Lahai, JOB etc are automally out of the race for the state house come 2018. Because they sold their political souls to the AAA hence SLPP members won’t take them seriously anymore, at least not for the 2018 general election.
But all isn’t lost, Dr Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella, the mastermind of AAA, is the only beneficiary of AAA, the only member who stands to gain enormously from the now collapsed AAA. As a new kid on the block, only very very limited citizens could even recall his name let alone know that he is a flagbearer aspirant of the oldest political party in the country. But thanks to AAA, the new kid on the block is relatively known in Sierra Leone now. Credit to KKY for feeding off the political popularity of the other AAA aspirants thereby making a good case for himself as a potential flagbearer and destroying the other AAA members at the same time; one bullet for two kills.
The question therefore remains, is the stolen popularity enough for KKY to even be considered as an alternative to Dr Bio? Bearing in mind that KKY is already contemplating the formation of a new political party, perhaps he’s proactively planning because there’s no light at the end of the tunnel.
Soon we would find out when the flagbeership elections are concluded.
