Diamond Gate – CSO Implicates VP Jalloh
Cecilia Mattia, a fearless, experienced civil society activist, and a woman of integrity that works for the Sierra Leone Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (SLEITI) has chosen to uphold transparency and integrity (virtues worth emulating across Sierra Leone).
The highly esteemed CSO (Cecilia Mattia), who is popularly recognized as an epitome of integrity, has on one of the country’s local radios, 98.1 FM Good Morning Show Program, lashed at the two days of the Vice President, Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh (in photo), possessing the popular gem in his residence as a completely questionable move that should raise questions about the present claim by the government that the once confirmed 700 carat diamond is just a pretty stone.
The Honorable Vice President of the Republic of Sierra Leone was reported to have kept the 700 carat diamond in his possession at his residence for 48 hours before handing it over to the appropriate authorities.
This move by the Honorable Vice President if true is clearly wrong and completely distant from the ethics that should be upheld by every government.
It is appalling and shame to our nation when a government cannot hold its own. What will the people of this nation say and on what bases should anyone at all trust a government that has displayed zero integrity and absolute disregard for the most vital life principle of “eat from your sweat”?
A hardworking citizen of this blessed country called Ezekiel Kabba choose not to tow the path of thievery and trending laziness but choose to toil hard to make ends meet. The youthful dream which states that “we are the future leaders” has been the greatest tool of mental slavery in the hands of our selfish leaders who desire to deprive the young of all opportunities of attaining wealth and assuming leadership roles.
With this in mind, the youths are once again demoralized by this mind bugging question; is the “NEW DIRECTION” another crafted path to unending sufferings?
After years in the extremely risky mining fields of Kono, the divine hand of wealth choose Ezekiel Kabba and his friends as they found a 700 carat gem (diamond).
Experienced Lebanese diamond experts were said to have confirmed that it was one of the largest diamonds ever found in the history of Sierra Leone. Information reaching Sierra Leoneans confirmed that a heavily armed convoy sped down to the diamond blessed district (Kono) to command possession of the gem and escorted Ezekiel Kabba down to Freetown in the name of safety.
The truth must always prevail and these allegations must not be taken lightly as citizens of this blessed motherland demand an immediate enquiry into this DIAMOND GATE.
If we must trust your (government) claims and promises of delivering a transparent system void of scams and corruption then we expect justice to prevail so that the hopes of every young Sierra Leonean can be renewed.
