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.
