Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs goes silent – big crack in APC

For over a month now the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs, Mr. Sheka Tarawalie (in photo) has abandoned his political office for alleged threat and accusation by his boss, Ambassador J B Dauda, that he is a traitor who takes information from the office and feeds His Excellency the President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma on the daily operations of the ministry of Internal Affairs.

According to investigation done by this press furthered that the cracking bones between the Minister, J B Dauda and his Deputy, Sheka Tarawalie derived from a purchase of a fake and rotten fire engine machine by the ministry which involves the signature of Ambassador J B Dauda and the Permanent Secretary at the time, Mr. Sandy.

On that note I tried to get to talk with Ambassador J B Dauda on the phone, which he said to this press that he will not give out any response in connection of whatsoever is happening in the Ministry, but to ask his deputy Internal Affairs Minister, Sheka Tarawalie first which I tried but did not get Sheka Tarawalie up to press time.

Allegations further that the passport contract which was signed between the Ministry and Thomas De Laru has expired for long, and not even in the records of the President, but still operating between Ambassador J B Dauda and his newly set up staff.

The contract is still running and the fund is going into the bottomless pockets of the minister, J B Dauda and his cabal.  This contract was also signed by the minister and his then secretary, Mr Sandy.

This press also found out that the minister, J B Dauda has accused his deputy minister of sabotaging his clandestine acts, by giving out information to His Excellency about the daily affairs of the ministry which have end up by creating a serious bitter blood between the two gentlemen.

The absence of the Deputy Minister, Sheka Tarawalie has been in a limelight which has also made this press to do double appearance to the minister, but he could not give audience to our investigation by saying that he had a series of meetings and could not be in the position of talking to the press.  Ambassador J B Dauda has all along been watching his deputy minister as a nefarious person.  Though observers within the ministry said to this press that the issue has been proliferating for long, and it is now that it has exploded.

On that note, J B Dauda has reshuffled his staff by changing his accountant, Permanent Secretary, Procurement Officer, Deputy Permanent Secretary which the allegation says that all were replaced with his Mende brothers and sisters that will cover up his secret.

This press also gathered that Mr. J B Dauda has monopolised the minister in a way that he now writing letters without coping his deputy minister any longer.

This bitter blood between Minister, Ambassador J B Dauda and his deputy Sheka Tarawalie has gone in a way that even the official vehicle that was assigned to Mr. Munu, personal assistant to the deputy minister Sheka Tarawalie, has been withdrawn by Minister J B Dauda, and even staff attached to the deputy minister while he is on the ordeal are under serious pressure by Ambassador JB Dauda.

As a result of this impact, the deputy minister has decided to stay at his house doing his official job just to avoid further confrontation between him and his boss.  Upon a visit to the office of the deputy minister, the office was so doomed and quiet, its only those whom think that Sheka Tarawalie is a minister who has human feeling like His Excellency are still visiting the office just to encourage the secretary who all along sat quietly watching at the photo of her boss and as well as furniture’s at the office on behalf of her boss.
