East District Bike Riders Chairman forced to relocate
Freetown, June (SLENA) – The East District Chairman, Sierra Leone Bike Riders Union (SLBRU), Anthony Dabohas denied knowledge of escaping from the union branch office at SLPMB in Wellington, east of Freetown without paying the salaries of bike riders employed by the union.
According to source, as head of the east district of the union, Anthony Dabo is in charge of bike riders plying the route starting from Ferry Junction to Masiaka in the Port Loko District. He is in charge of the welfare of bike riders employed by the SLBRU on behalf of private bike owners.
Recently, bike riders under his employment protested violently for the non-payment of their salaries which is Le470,000.00 monthly per bike rider.
Speaking to SLENA in an interview, Chairman Dobo described the allegations as baseless and unfounded, pointing fingers at his rival, one Alpha Kamara who happens to be the Park Zonal Chairman at the SLPMB branch in Wellington.
Dabor said the moneys paid to the bike riders are not salaries but allowances and that he had paid the ten or so employed bike riders the sum of three hundred thousand leones (Le300,000.) each, remaining the balance sum of one hundred and seventy thousand leones (Le170,000) per rider.
He said since his mandate covers between Ferry Junction and Masiaka he had decided to have his office at the SLPMB zone in Wellington. “I think Mr. Alpha Kamara does not want to see me there, so he has to incite bike riders against me,” he said, saying he was now relocated somewhere at Shell Company in Kissy.
On his part, Mr. Alpha Kamara, the Wellington zonal park chairman, admitted that Mr. Dabo’s presence at SLPMB axis created a lot of problems for him and wanted him to quit the vicinity. “Now there is peace at SLPMB,” he added.
