Appropriation… Musa Tarawally’s Le 1Bn contract exposed
Reports are that the Minister of Internal Affairs, Musa Tarawally may possibly explain to the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) how a sum totaling Le1,000,000,000 meant for the rehabilitation of Lungi Police Barracks was misappropriated.
Musa Tarawally (then Member of Parliament for the Sierra Leone People’s Party Member), was awarded a contract to rehabilitate and construct structures at the Lungi Police Barracks during periods of Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) governance control.
Findings have it that Musa Tarawally disregarded rehabilitating and constructing quarters at Lungi police as required by the contract, but rather collected an amount of Le 1,000,000,000 being money paid for the work.
Disclosures are that Musa Tarawally may also be compelled to account for another Le10,000,000 given him by government (the ruling APC) for the transformation of the ‘Kamajor militias’ into a civil society organization as he once acted as Resident Minister south.
It could be recalled that, in 2011, this press published a story notifying officials of the ACC with regard Musa Tarawally’s alleged appropriation of public’s money – amounting to one billion Leones.
The media, on a number of times, has asserted that Musa Tarawally has been busily lobbying bigwigs of the governing APC party, to make them possibly blow his horn to President Koroma for the position of running mate come the 2012 elections.
At some point in 2011 Musa Tarawally paid an unannounced visit to Kono district (the home town of the current Sierra Leone Vice President) and was accused of perpetrating disturbances against vulnerable Kono residents. His bodyguards (armed police officers) allegedly discharged live bullets at hundreds of Kono youths for, as they put it: “the visit was clandestine.”
