“SLPP sold Yenga to Guinea”
It has been revealed that the disputed border town of Yenga, which is occupied by Guinean troops was sold to late President Lansana Conte at the peak of the civil war by the then past government.
An independent councillor representing Constituency 03, Kailahun District Council, Fanta Alpha (in photo), alleged that Yenga was sold to Guinea by the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) led government of former President Alhaji Ahmad Tejan Kabbah.
“Yenga was deliberately sold to foreigners by SLPP led government of former President Kabbah and now they are making unnecessary noise over the issue because they want to bring another war to Sierra Leone”, Councillor Alpha revealed.
She made the disclosure while declaring her support and full allegiance to President Koroma and the APC, which she believes is not a deceptive party, but one that fulfils its promises to the people.
She expressed hope that President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma will redeem Yenga from Guinean occupation. “Let’s give him the chance to work”, she pleaded.
President Koroma said government had never politicised the Yenga issue because the feelings and aspirations of the people of Kailahun are being met by his administration, thus damned the politics of deception and lies.
“Yenga is ours and it is not a matter for the courts. President Professor Alpha Conde of Guinea and I are committed toward the return of Yenga to the government of Sierra Leone. The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Joseph Bandabla Dauda will confirm date with authorities in Conakry for talks to be held on Yenga”, he said, and further note that, “We are going to return Yenga to Sierra Leone. So, don’t allow any deceptive politicians to lie to you about the redemption Yenga from Guinea. They were in office yesterday but could not redeem Yenga. The issue of Yenga will soon be a thing of the past and government is in the process of redeeming Yenga,” President Koroma asserted.
He commended the Kailahun District Chairman, Councillor Tom S. Nyuma for his remarkable role in district council administration, describing him as the hardest working district council chairperson. President Koroma said Chairman Nyuma neither has a problem with the Anti-Corruption Commission nor the Government of Sierra Leone.
Making remarks during a similar stop over at Buedu, Kissy Tongi Chiefdom, President Koroma lauded the efforts of APC supporters, traditional leaders and cultural mask drummers and dancers, amidst singing and jubilations, for the kind receptions that was givent to him and his entourage.
He described Kissy Tongi as the rock of the APC as supporters from every corner of the community have manifested gratitude to President Koroma and his APC government.
“We are coming to take back our constituencies in Kissy Tongi”, he confidently said.
