ACC intercepts 4250kgs of rice supply meant for Ebola quarantined homes

At about 20-21:00hrs on Saturday 27th September 2014, the ACC together with other stakeholders including the Sierra Leone Police and the Health For All Coalition (HFAC), intercepted two vehicles; a Salini Salcost vehicle with registration number ACW 443 driven by one John Sesay and a Toyota Land Cruiser with registration number 73CD24 driven by one Edith J. Kargbo of WFP.

At the time of interception around Watson Street, Masuba, in the Makeni Township, the suspects were actively involved at odd hours contrary to WFP operational procedures transferring 50kg bags of rice from the truck to the WFP Toyota Land Cruiser. A total of 69 bags of rice were found in the Salcost vehicle, while 16 bags, which is about 800kgs of rice, were loaded in the WFP vehicle, purportedly for distribution to quarantined homes. The exercise was taking place in the absence of other members of the EOC.

The Makeni Police Division, headed by LUC G.M Turay, the ACC and ONS are investigating the matter. Meanwhile, the drivers of the two vehicles, the DMO, the District Nutritionist and the WFP Programme Assistant in the region, Mahmood Kamara, are helping the Police with the investigations.

  • Even at this time we are stealing and converting properties of course nothing will come out of this – it is exempted. Politics will quash the investigation. They have only seen this single incident but watch it goes on all over. The country is cursed with this sort of behaviour. Everyone is at it every where. How will donors take us seriously. This nation must be fed up with this type of thieving attitude something must tell these idiots to stop. Corruption is killing the country – health service, police, civil service, NRA, the law and education. We are fed up politics is everywhere so many have immunity. Dont look for help when you condone such degrading behaviours – you steal land you steal government funds no problem I am politically connected. We are fed up
