Arrow, Gaima, and others – political prostitutes?
Two Deputy Ministers, and 48 others took exit from the Peoples Movement Democratic Change (PMDC) party to join the ruling All Peoples Congress (APC). It is revealed that Arrow Bockarie and Daniel Gaima resigned from the PMDC shortly after their appointments as APC Deputy Ministers.
Studios of Sierra Leone Broadcasting Cooperation (SLBC radio and television), last week, engaged the resigned PMDC members (Deputy Ministers) for discussions on issues adjoining and making confessions linking reasons to their resignation from the PMDC.
It is a fact that Daniel Gaima, on one occasion, was nominated by his previous leader, Charles Francis Margai to represent the PMDC in the cabinet of President Koroma (APC leader).
He was approved to hold position in the government of President Koroma as Deputy Minister in the Ministry of Lands, but sacked for an untold reason or outwardly, as a result of lack in ability as the case may be.
In about a year or two, Daniel Gaima, Arrow Bockarie, Soccoh Kabia and Dennis Sandy, all PMDC members, found their names on the list of appointees as Ministers and Deputy Ministers.
Shortly after their appointments, a group of separatists (50 in numbers) including Daniel Gaima, Arrow Bockarie and Wife, submitted letters of resignation to the management of the PMDC and consequently joined the APC (party in governance).
Insider revelations disclose that the appointments of Daniel Gaima and Arrow Bockarie as Deputy Ministers is no means a mistake, but a way of alluring them to penetrate the ranks of interest in strongholds of the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) to make way for the APC in the 2012 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
Facts have it that the APC intentionally appointed Daniel Gaima and Arrow Bockarie to enable them to persuade district, town and village mates vote to the favour of the ruling APC.
Even though the appointed Deputy Ministers accused the PMDC of lack in leadership, it is revealed that Daniel Gaima, Arrow Bockarie and 48 others joined the APC on grounds referred to as “selfish and reckless political game play.”
Public’s contemplations indicate that Daniel Gaima and Arrow Bockarie are toeing the line of persons tagged as political prostitutes – yesterday PMDC, today APC and tomorrow elsewhere.
