Tarnishing Operation WID

As Operation WID goes full swing, we have started receiving unpleasant reports of violent confrontations the police and traders, the  most recent being the disgraceful incident at Rawdon Street where an aggrieved Lebanese businessman had the guts to publicly slap a police officer of the Freetown City Council.

We believe such reports bear the highest propensity to besmear the whole exercise and defeat its purpose thereby frustrating His Excellency the president Ernest Bai Koroma and his effort to fight the rampant lawlessness now plaguing this republic.

Interestingly, the very operation that claims to be fighting lawlessness has ended up being a trade fare of lawless activities. This big irony has left us in complete confusion and has sent clear signal that many Sierra Leoneans are not yet prepared to abandon their lawless tendencies.

The sporadic violence that characterizes Operation WID is sending a strongly worded message to President Koroma that he is wasting his precious time on trying to fight lawlessness. If police officers have begun receiving hot slaps, we cannot rule out the possibility that one fine day, our newly-appointed ministers will receive their own slaps.

However, we are not surprised because if Sierra Leoneans had the audacity to bulldoze their way into the office of the Attitudinal and Behavioral Change Secretariat and steal away valuable items, beating up police officers is comparatively no big deal.
