Mobilizing Funds For Free Education Leema Makes Himself Object Of Caricature
Aggrieved staff of the Sierra Leone Commercial Bank( SLCB), Bank of Sierra Leone (BSL) and other financial institutions, disclosed to Sierra Express Media that this particular SLPP government is attempting to implement all sorts of bad financial policies in the name of mobilizing funds for their main flagship programme – Free Education through their National Publicity Secretary- Lahai Leema. In a popular programme, when interrogated with regards omitting the Leave Allowances of Bankers, Leema hastily responded by saying that leave allowance is not taxable and that is why the government is increasing the salaries of staff so that they could be taxed. He ignorantly opined that leave allowance has no impact on the lives of workers.
The SLPP mouthpiece, according to the concerns of the people has categorically stated that the government is more keen on generating substantial income on indirect taxes (salaries of workers) rather than seeking their welfare and motivating them for the tedious jobs they are doing. Authentic sources within various MDA’s had revealed to SEM that the salary increment that Leema has been bragging about is nothing to write home about as that meager amount cannot even purchase half a bag of rice. Moreover, civil servants falling within that category of a Le 50,000 increase are saying it has got no positive move in their economic life and that there is no economic impact created so far by this SLPP government that were bitterly crying the past regime down in terms of economic retrogression.
