Army dabaroo – Director General dragged to ACC
The Director General of Defense, Mani Koroma, last week faced a team of Anti Corruption Investigators to answer to allegations connecting misgivings on the supply of rice supply for July 2010.
Sources say the Defense Director General was questioned on allegations depicting failure to supply take home ration (bag of rice) to soldiers for the month of July.
Desks of this medium have received information linking reason warranting the conduct of an investigation by the ACC on the issue of the July rice supply of soldiers.
Reflections of society meditate facts revealing President Koroma’s younger brother, Junior Koroma, as the man that is relaying ordinary information against officials of the Defense Ministry.
Sources say Junior Koroma aka ‘What A Man’ owns a company called Sierra Commodities.
Findings say the forenamed company bidded with others for the contract to supply 8,500 bags of rice to the Army.
Junior Koroma whose company was turned down by persons appointed to award such a contract, saw it as unfair; later wrote to the national procurement office, appealing the decision of procurement officers at the Defense Ministry.
This press has received credible information revealing how President Koroma’s brother was using the press to act as alarmists, condemning officials of the Defense Ministry, on issues bordering on the Army rice supply.
It could be recalled that after the contract to supply rice to the Army was awarded to African Sunshine – for the months of June, July, August and September, front pages of the dailies were observed carrying sharpened up headlines, criticizing the decision of officials of Defense Ministry.
The Director General Defense, Mani Koroma, who they say, sweated in air cooled offices of the ACC, submitted to the investigators; documentary qualifications confirming how soldiers were supplied take home ration for July of 2010.
Although efforts to get comment from the ACC failed, sources say the investigation of the July Army rice supply, seemed not revealing anything sober as has been alleged.
Main Koroma was contacted but could not be reached at.
