“I owe film industry no money” APC chairman responds

The  Eastern Regional Chairman of the All Peoples Congress (APC), Prince Kamara, has denied owing the Good Guys Film Industry the sum of Le 50 million for two political campaign movies, “The President Must Stay,” and “The Pa Di Woke,” as recently alleged in this newspaper by two producers of the movies, Michael Dugba and Issa Komeh Mohamed.

Prince Kamara made the denial during an exclusive interview with this medium in Kenema in the presence of one of the producers, Michael Dugba who admitted that there is no legal binding document to prove that Mr. Kamara owes the movie industry Le 50 million.

Mr. Kamara stated that, on the contrary, the Good Guys Movie Industry owes him Le 11 million which he loaned to it for the printing of the two campaign movies. Micheal Dugba also agreed that, indeed, Mr. Kamara loaned them the Le 11 million for the printing of the movies and that they are yet to refund the money.

The APC chairman further explained that the agreement was that he should sponsor the production of the movies according to the budget prepared by the producers and that he fulfilled his own part of the bargain by giving the producers all the monies they budgeted. “The first money I gave the producers was Le 31 million; I gave them the money in the presence of witnesses.”

Mr. Kamara said he went the extra mile to use his own financial resources to provide food, vehicles and fuel and other logistics for the producers just to make the venture a success, adding that till now, the producers still have his video camera and other equipment which he gave to them for the filming exercise.

The chairman concluded that the producers never accounted to him for all the hundreds of copies of the movies which they sold and are yet to refund the Le 11 million they promised to refund after selling the movies, and have not yet returned to him his video camera and other equipment he gave to them for the production exercise, noting that it is very unfortunate for such producers to accuse him of owing them Le 50 million.

Michael Dugba consented to all of Mr. Kamara’s explanations.
