Kenema road(s) where are the SLPP politicians, senior civil servants and mayor of Kenema?

The call for Kenema roads maintenance or repair, especially within the city of the said town is long overdue. Such call is always seem to be falling on deaf ears, particularly on the ears of the Kenema born, politicians, senior civil servants, paramount chiefs, business people and mayor, if so why.

Kenema District in general has some very good prominent citizens mentioned above. Therefore, such group of people are capable of solving such minor problem/s for themselves as patriotic citizens, particularly as citizen of the district for the benefit of the poor people of Kenema with some supports from the roads’ authorities concerned. But where are they? It’s like they are always busy in politicking other than working for their people.

However, I will like to make one point clear to my readers that I am not one of President Ernest Bai Koroma or APC government public relations officers (PRO). But I am a man who likes to see good things happening in the country, especially for the benefit of my poor people. Despite I am livening in a country that I am relatively comfortable with my family. But I am always concern about the well-being of my poor, powerless and defenceless Sierra Leoneans in the country, especially in terms of the safety of their lives and daily survivals. I always want to see them live very good happy lives in their towns and villages with peace.

That is why I always like to point out some of the good and bad things that are taking place in my motherland, called Sierra Leone, especially for it peace and development. Although enemies of peace, progress and development do not want to see or hear about anyone that is always exposing their diabolic unpatriotic attitude, behaviour and plans in and out of the country.

Nonetheless the issue of the deplorable condition of Kenema roads is something worth commenting for the benefit of our poor and powerless Kenema people in the country. Because it is becoming more and more disturb in the minds of many peace and development loving Sierra Leoneans both in and out of the country. Because of the unpatriotic attitude and behaviour of some Sierra Leoneans who seek political appointment and government offices only for their personal corrupt benefit at the expense of the nation. But not for the interest of the poor people that they are always claiming to be fighting for.

Kenema roads maintenance or repairs is part of the Kenema Mayor’s duties and responsibilities, especially within the township. It is not only central government responsibility. But it is also the duty of the Mayor to see that his Council perform its duties and responsibilities accordingly. It is part of his responsibilities to see that the roads, streets, market buildings and office buildings are in good conditions. Therefore, he should not always depend on government support. Let him don’t forget what he told the people before he was given that position.

He has the right to raise funds in many different genuine ways, including the calling of the attention of his subjects in the district, particularly the chiefs and some of the prominent politicians, senior civil servants, business people and famers on issue/s pertaining to the district development. Not only on political issues. In fact according to my radar many Sierra Leoneans like politicking than any other good things in the country. In view of that self-destruction politicking is their food for every day and night.

Therefore, it’s like many Sierra Leoneans sit in government and parastatal offices without any good initiatives that well bring good development in the country and their districts without the central government support. In many countries, including Australia some good development is done by their City Councils with little support from their central governments. Council itself is a government of its own by law. Therefore, it should have the innovative on how to raise genuine funds for its developmental projects than always depending on central government support.

But in Sierra Leone, it seems as if everybody in the country relies on government support, particularly the City Councils. Some of them always points accusing fingers against Central Government for not doing much for their councils, especially in terms of financial support that they can be easily pocketed. According to my radar, there was a certain Paramount Chief in the Kenema district that was shamelessly blaming government for not repairing the roads in their district. Forgetting that they and central government are twins’ partners in development, therefore they should always work together as a team.

But it has become a philosophy that everything is government; even if government gives them money to develop their districts or councils, they will sit on those monies and cry foul at the expense of their subjects. They are depriving the poor people’s rights to live better or decent lives in their districts. They only believe in castigating government, even though they have nothing good to offer their people for their welfare in their districts.

They always turn into cry-babies about money to the central government. While some of them have money to contribute to their political parties’ activities and pay lawyers for a political broken cup issue, instead of putting such monies for the development of their districts for the benefit of the disadvantage people that they always fool.

One or few politicians in the district can easily come together and buy some bags of cements to maintenance or repair some of the roads and streets with potholes in their district towns other than waiting for government to do that for them. Politicians always want the people to vote for them but they do not care about their wellbeing.

Even to provide their basic needs they always turn blind eyes on them and blaming government for thing/s that they can easily do for the vulnerable people in their districts. They are always waiting for elections time to buy one bag of rice and give them Le30 or 50 for their votes and later they collect them back from them through their corrupt activities. Therefore, sometimes it necessary to teach some of these wicked guys their duties and responsibilities in the country.

According to my Radar, some of them can even go extra mile to sabotage some of the developmental projects that government is offering in their districts because of wicked unpatriotic political party interest at the expense of the poor, innocent and powerless people, especially the youths that are in dare need of jobs in their districts. They naively put their districts behind development thinking that they are doing APC government.

However, one thing that is well known to some of us about some unpatriotic and unnationalistic Sierra Leoneans in and out of the country is that the politicking of important and trivial issues at the detriment of the nation’s peace and security.

Even the current natural disaster, flood that brought about another added suffering for the people in the country, those who slept in the negative political web theory of tribalism and regionalism are currently politicising it to satisfy their political masters. They always pretend not to know that natural disaster is currently all over the word, including Africa because of sycophantic political party loyalty at the expense of the country’s progress and development.

Instead of coming together as a united Sierra Leoneans family and tell the world how the flood devastated the lives of our poor people that been traumatised by the post brutal civil war, current Ebola virus and now the flood in the country, they are busy playing political blame game at the expense of the dying people that are in dare need of immediate support from all corners of the world to rebuild their lives.
