Junta men take over SLPP – Sierra Update
Two of the key players who brought untold sufferings to the people of Sierra Leone have taken the leadership of the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) ahead of the 2012 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
Julius Maada Bio, former Head of State and John Oponjo Wurie Chief Secretary of State in the junta regime of the National Provisional Ruling Council (NPRC) – the regime that executed, terrorized, tortured and humiliated thousands of innocent Sierra Leoneans, have won both the leadership and Chairmanship of the SLPP during the party’s National Delegates conference.
“They want to bring back the NPRC in disguise – we now believe that the SLPP is NPRC part two, but trust me we wouldn’t allow them take over power again for the second time – at least not now that we are beginning to see positive things coming our way under the leadership of President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma,” said a relative of one of the victims of Salami Coker and others who were innocently and brutally murdered in cold blood.
The leadership contest itself ended this morning with Maada Bio emerging as winner beating all 18 of his opponents. He pulled 238 votes against his closest opponents Osman Boie Kamara who got 185.
Another NPRC kingpin Lawyer Sulaiman Banja Tejan-Sie who was Secretary of State Sports until he was disgracefully molested and bundled in a car boot before being locked up in a cell also won the position of the Secretary General kicking out the loud-mouthed Joseph Jusu Saffa alias JJ Blood, after earlier being endorsed by Maada Bio.
