In Sierra Leone – Bo Mayor denies beating up Councilor
Mayor of Bo City Council, His Lordship Mayor Harold Logic Tucker, has denied beating up Councilor Pastor Senessy, former SLPP Chaplain, as alleged in a local tabloid.
Cross checking the allegation that the Mayor beat up the Councilor, Mayor Harold Tucker informed Sierra Express Media that he did not put up any fight or beat up Pastor Sesessy when he and his guys obstructed him and others in the Bo Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) office recently. He said he was a peaceful and development-oriented citizen, he would not reduce his good image to fighting his subordinates. He described the allegation as baseless noting that his focus is on implementing as many development projects as possible in Bo city.
An eye-witness accounted that one of Pastor Senessy’s guys gripped a Metropolitan Police Officer who was trying to quell the noise generated by Pastor Senessy and his guys, which led to distraction of the Mayor as he was discussing serious party issues at that moment. The attacker was said to have tried to run away, but with the help of the Mayor’s security personnel, his attempt was foiled and he was arrested shortly after.
Observers in the southern Bo city have intimated to Sierra Express Media that the Bo city council under Harold Tucker is on the right track giving the tremendous development agenda the Mayor is working on for the benefit of the city. The council is said to have done best in terms of revenue generation; doing more than the Freetown City Council and other local councils in the country.
A political anbalyst disclosed on condition of anonymity, that the beating allegation against the Mayor could have been masterminded by supporters of the SLPP Chairman, John Oponjo Benjamin (JOB); describing Mayor Tucker as a pro-Julius Maada Bio supporter.
