Nine Months Of SLPP’s Incompetence Sierra Leone Remains Hell
Sierra Leone under the Paopa administration of the former junta leader, Brig. (Rtd) Julius Maada Bio (in photo), has drastically degenerated into what over 85% Sierra Leoneans continue to describe as hell.
Since coming to power some nine months ago, President Bio’s Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) government has subjected Sierra Leoneans to an unprecedented suffering that has never been seen in the history of Sierra Leone as over 85% of citizens are finding it extremely difficult to put food on their table as a result of hyperinflation of basic commodities on a daily basis precipitated by the exorbitant taxes levied by the Paopa Administration.
Everything seems to be going upside down under the New Direction as businesses are collapsing and in some cases, closing down almost on a daily basis as a result of the hostile business environment created by President Bio’s SLPP and the rising political tension and insecurity in the country.
It can be recalled that the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) politicians when in opposition, lambasted the previous All Peoples Congress (APC) administration on its inability to adequately handle the bread and butter issue affecting majority of the country’s population and other governance issues including national cohesion, respect for the country’s constitution and rule of law among others and hence promised to change the status quo when elected into office.
Against this backdrop, many unsuspecting Sierra Leoneans fell for their propaganda and voted for the SLPP during the March 2018 election hoping that they would keep up to their many promises.
Sadly though, the SLPP has not only woefully failed in keeping to its many bogus promises, but also has drastically increased the sufferings of Sierra Leoneans through its tribal and regional divide rule, blatantly bastardization of the country’s constitution and the rule of law, intimidation and victimization of political opponents using state institutions including the Sierra Leone Police, the Anti-Corruption Commission to name but a few and the unreasonable increase in taxes among others.
The Sierra Leone Peoples Party government of President Bio in less than nine months, has exceeded every other government in Sierra Leone’s history in terms of the atrocities caused including the unprecedented sackings of thousands of Sierra Leoneans for political, regional and tribal reasons, the politically motivated killings of innocent Sierra Leoneans across the country, the horrendous human right abuses including the gang rapes of many innocent women across the country among others.
President Bio’s SLPP has been best described by the Chairman and leader of the Alliance Democratic Party (ADP), Mohamed Kamarainba Mansaray, who in his words described the Bio’s SLPP government as the worst in the history of Sierra Leone as a result of its financial recklessness and the inability it has demonstrated in addressing the problems of Sierra Leoneans.
