Sports Minister failed to commemorate late Kabba China Kamara’s first anniversary

Sports Minister failed to commemorate late Kabba China Kamara’s first anniversary

I am always confused by the saying, “Don’t ask what your country can do for you, but rather what you can do for your country.”

Most football legends have served this country in the past with the best of their knowledge to make football fans always happy but immediately after the end of their football careers, nobody seems to care for them again.

I mean the Government, the football associations, Sport Ministry, football stakeholders and entire football supporters. When eventually most of these legends die like paupers it is then that they will be treated as if they are sons of kings during their funeral service.

A recent case in point is Kabba Kamara who won five consecutive championship trophies with Mighty Blackpool, captained the Leone Stars, and was the star player who scored eight goals when Leone Stars travelled to China and played against their national team and several friendly matches in 1974.

After bulldozing the Chinese Defenders in almost every match and scoring the eight, he was nicknamed “Kabba China” and the Leone Stars’ success in China inspired the Chinese Government to build our only National Stadium in a bilateral agreement with our Government.

Wednesday, 26th February, 2014 marked the first anniversary of the passing of Kabba China Kamara but not a single football stakeholder ever visited the bereaved family.

After all what Kabba China Kamara did for this country does he deserve to be forgetten so soon? What a pity!

In First World countries legends are always well catered for, but in Sierra Leone even the living legends like King Kama Dumbuya, Umaru Din Sesay, Christian Cole, Jebbor Sherrington and dozens of them who are jobless roamed the streets of Freetown as if they never rendered any service to this nation./

Little wonder Leone Stars always lose important matches in the dying minutes as if the team is under a curse.

Government, Sierra Leone Football Association, and football stakeholders, it is now time to see reason and start honouring our football legends.
