The Founder and President of the King Fahad Islamic Mission in Freetown, Mr. Suphian Bangura, has reportedly informed the general public that upon the dissolution of the former executive committee of the Mission and upon the completion of their term of office, the Board of Trustees of the Mission has appointed a new executive committee to run the affairs of the Mission.

Speaking to this paper in his school compound at Old Wharf, Wellington in the east of Freetown, Mr. Bangura noted that the former executive committee has done a good job and that the new body is expected to live to the expectations of promoting education in the country.
He disclosed that the King Fahad Islamic Mission was established in 1992 with the sole aim of supporting the educational sector in the country and helping the vulnerable people in identified communities.
He disclosed that King Fahad of Saudi Arabia has been very supportive to their institution over the years.
He stated they decided to sack the former Board because they were having a lot of problems with them, especially the former Chairman, Mr. Patrick Kamara, who he alleged has not been working in the best interest of the mission.
He also stated that Mr. Patrick Kamara has on many occasions tried to incite both Principals of the Junior Secondary School and the Senior Secondary School, a situation which he said he can no longer tolerate.
He said there were also instances where Mr. Patrick Kamara has even interfered in the financial matters of the mission, which was why they have now decided to inform the Anti Corruption Commission of these activities so that they can investigate the matter.
He noted that Mr. Patrick Kamara, has his own mission, the Rokuprr Wosie Integrated Rural Development Project, but requested for them to affiliate with his school, which, he said, he accepted in good faith, in order for them to pursue the general goal of the children of Sierra Leone.
Commenting on the issue, the Education Secretary, Mr. Mohamed Dumbuya, stated that he was trying to bring all the various stakeholders together to resolve the matter.
Up to press time Mr. Patrick Kamara could not give us an interview but continued to maintain that he wanted Mr. Mohamed Dumbuya to handle the matter.
