3 Alhajis Sacked and may Face Disgrace Upon Arrival in Lungi!
President Ernest Bai Koroma has been reported being seriously embarrassed upon discovering that three top Government officials working in the Hajj Committee have conspired to defraud the state and pilgrims of Hajj funds provided by the Government and Islamic organisations.
The trio, Alhaji MA Bah, Alhaji Sheka Kamara and Alhaji Nuru Deen Sankoh have been instructed through the Sierra Leone Embassy in Riyadh to cut their pilgrimage short and return home to answer to questions about the current charges against them.
Competent sources in Freetown say the ACC and the CID are on full alert and the 3 Alhajis will be arrested and dragged to the CID for investigations in connection with the misappropriation of Hajj funds.
The three men have no business in Mecca where they have gone to misuse and abuse Allah’s name with such a provocation.
Imagine the serious embarrassment a person may face when he’s arrested upon return from pilgrimage. Imagine the shame this can bring to their families, friends and loved ones including their colleagues in the government.
Imagine what it means when your turban is removed and you’re handcuffed as a criminal by CID amidst widespread media coverage.
President Koroma has displayed great religious tolerance and has shown respect and support to Muslims more than any other Head of State. Imams in Wellington speak positively about his support and regards for Muslims.
The President has appointed prominent Muslim clerics to facilitate pilgrimage and other support to Muslims across the country. It is this same trusted Muslim clerics that have brought scandal to the office.
This latest scandal is relates to my previous article titled “when a nation chooses to abuse and misuse God’s name…”. These three men are an example of people who misuse and abuse God’s name for their own personal gain.
