Mount Zion Demo Against Failed Legislator
Last Saturday was a red letter day against the Member of Parliament for Constituency 113 formerly Constituency 096, Honorable Alhassan Kamara (in photo) as inhabitants of Mount Zion in Calaba Town staged a big demonstration, calling on the sitting MP to hands off from contesting for the constituency symbol under the umbrella of the ruling All Peoples Congress (APC) party.
Speaking to Sierra Express Media, the dissatisfied voters vowed to vote for any opposition candidate if the party mistakenly award symbol to the said lawmaker for not living up to their expectation adding that as citizens, they are expecting decision makers in the APC including the Chairman and Leader, President Ernest Bai Koroma to listen to their voices this time before awarding symbol to any ambitious politician who has little or no interest in the development of the constituency and the people.
“We are die-hard APC supporters but shall not take it easy if authority award symbol to anyone that has no passion for the development of young people and the constituency as a whole,” said the disgruntled youths. They advanced that, a person with prudent character has already been figured out to represent them in Parliament in the next Government.
They threatened to declare publicly for any opposition political party if the APC attempt tp reject their request of changing the current representative whom they described as ungrateful and care only for his personal benefit at the detriment of constituents who voted him in office.
The ugliest part of this episode is that, over one hundred women in the Mount Zion Community have threatened to strip themselves and processed in the street if their voices are not heard by responsible authorities.
However, the Mount Zion indigenes said they are ready and willing to work with any politician that may be presented to them by their motherly party except Hon. Alhassan Kamara whom they accused of not deserving to represent them but over powered them as a result of the blessing of President Koroma and the then APC 444 slogan, a mistake they vowed never to be repeated until the end of their days on earth.
