Sierra Leone: Why the calumny on Keketoma Sandi?
An obscure rabble-rouser in an apparent blackmail attempt took to the social media to spew raw hate and pathological lies against one of the President’s most trusted men, the youthful Presidential Spokesman, Yusuf Keketoma Sandi.
In a machinated vilification antics, a middle aged woman falsely claimed in a widely circulated video that the stainless young man has amassed liquid cash to the tune of $150,000 in addition to four expensive cars for which she made an appeal to the ACC to investigate him.
But rather unconvincingly and relentlessly though, the shameless paid agent incongruously couched her jaundiced attack in an empty anti-corruption message to ignite rancor against the State Houseman.
Whatever her name is, the Europe based mercenary clearly disappointed her paid masters. She failed to substantiate her claims that Keketoma is indeed guilty of the allegation made against him in that video. Just as she did not tell us how the young man allegedly acquired such wealth; she also failed to produce evidence of possession.
With such an allegation as serious as an unexplained wealth, an ACC offence, the mercenary would have given bank details to back her claim of the money Keketoma had. She however failed to produce that incontrovertible fact.
But since it was only meant to soil the character of the youthful presidential aide, the details matters not to her and her handlers. Her duty was just to vilify for the sake of vilification in return for cash.
Since his appointment as Presidential Spokesman, Keketoma has exhibited to both his employer and the public at large high level of competency, decency and maturity to hold such a high profiled office. I therefore have no scintilla of doubt that the video maker and her handlers, no matter who are they, high or low, are just wasting their time, energy and money.
There is no perfection in humanity, but suffice to say that since assuming the role as Presidential Spokesman, Keketoma Sandi has had his head and shoulder above the mucky waters of Sierra Leone politics.
No wonder why many people are still wondering why he must be targeted in that crude political antics.
Sierra Leoneans should discountenance the whole video clip and consider it as a hate speech typical of the Sierra Leonean culture.
