The $1.5 M Deal… Junior Koroma, Lebanese President Who?

While we authoritatively questioned the lethargy of senior officials of NRA for failing to bring to light ‘Harmony Company’s reckless disregard for payment of money it owed the NRA, it must be noted also that Junior Koroma (younger brother of President Koroma), is said to be roaming the streets of Freetown, boastfully making unfavourable comments, which to society, demeans President Koroma’s leadership.

Koroma, months ago, threatened respectful state officials on grounds of what he says was because his company (Harmony turned Sierra Commodity) was not given the contract to supply rice to the Army.

Sources say he went as far as flinging abusive words at highly placed officials of government.

Our specialist reporter, Arthur Caulker, yesterday confronted Lebanese President, Sammir Hassanyere, at his Rawdon Street office to get comment from him concerning an allegation that he was at the fore to help rescue the President’s younger brother’s company (Harmony Company).

Sources say Harmony Company’s refusals to pay USD 1.5 M have serious political game play.

Of course, it was all unsound minutes after our reporter confronted Sammir Hassanyere for comment.

“I will abuse you badly if you write anything about me. And if you write anything, I will take you to court and cause you go to Pademba Prison,” words as said by Sammir in the presence of a police Inspector (name withheld).

Harmony Company, we are told, owed NRA an accumulated amount of USD1.5 M.

And because it has no intention of paying same, cunningly registered another business (Sierra Commodity) and used it to manipulatively secure the Army rice contract.

It has reached desks of this press that officials of national procurement office connived with Joseph Koroma to redo the Army rice contract.

Sierra Express will soon begin to name shame all including senior officials of NPPA.
