Sierra Leone’s Social Welfare Minister Sacked

Sierra Leone’s Social Welfare Minister Sacked

It has been confirmed by a State House source that the Minister of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s Affairs, Dr. Dennis Sandy, has been sacked.

The sacking of Minister Sandy, we are told, came as a result of rumors that he is playing dual political role – acting as APC Minister and at the same time campaigning for the Peoples Movement for Democratic Change Party (PMDC).

Sources say however that the sacking of the forenamed Minister has not surprised a good number of APC Ministers at all.

It was revealed though that the sacked Minister was spotted making comments that vilify the ruling APC but favour the leader of the PMDC party, Charles Francis Margai.

That he was boastfully defending a statement delivered by Charles Margai at the just concluded Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) convention.

It could be recalled that Charles Margai delivered a statement at the SLPP convention that speaks ill of the ruling APC.

In an interview with the Minister of Information, Alhaji I.B Karbgo, he said he was on his way to the provinces and could not tell whether Minister Sandy has been sacked or is being sacked.

But he however told this press that it will not come as a surprise if the Minister of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s Affairs is eventually sacked.

“Of course, it is the right of the President to hire or fire any Minister. And it should be known that the elections are near and any Minister that is not worth the salt will surely not survive but face the axe of the President.”

It could be recalled also that the sacked Minister is currently been investigated by the Anti Corruption Commission on grounds linking him to corruption overindulgences while acting in the capacity as Sierra Leone’s Lands Minister.

  • It is not suprised to learn that the president has sacked the Gender and Affairs minister. the president should know that our country is a democratic country and everyone has the right to belong to any political parties. If Dennis is working as a government minister, he is working for the country not for any political parties and the president should know that this man has his political party that he is supporting, that does not warrant the president to sack him just becaus he supported the speeach made by Charles Margai on the just conculed covention.
    The president is taking the wrong step as there are minister that are not capable in certain ministries which he should have sacked a long time ago. e.g The minister of education,, the finance minister, the trade minister and many more as theses peple are not doing their best for the country.

    This is bringing a wrong signal for the president for 2012 election. He might be thinkning as he is popular but he has to know that the hearts of people is like an ocean and you he will never know what’s on their mind. So watch out 2012 is going to be tought for him.
