What’s happening with our Ambassadors?
Patriotic editors of the Sierra Express Media and New People Online, who published few days ago my piece about the unpatriotic activities of the Sierra Leonean embassy in Germany, I wish to thank you for your relentless effort in bringing to the world the latest development in and about our beloved Sierra Leone; and wish to seize this opportunity again, to dedicate one or two words to the self-styled commentator, Mr. Joseph Seidu Sherman and the rest of his sycophant colleagues who are attacking decent people in online newspapers in the name of President Koroma and his APC administration.Â Before going further, I must make it crystal clear that this piece is not a direct response to Mr. Shermanâ€™s seven paragraphs repeatedly sending the same message: â€œI hate the New People Online; I hate SLPP; APC is the best political party in the world; President Koroma shall rule forever; Iâ€™m yarning for recognition which might pave my way into the corrupt gameâ€. Â Â What Iâ€™m about to do however, is to send him and his cohorts few more questions since they are yet to officially respond to my first article – particularly the question whether their Foreign Minister, Haja Zainab Hawa Bangura is aware of the increment in consular fees and the illegal passport deals perpetuated by the embassy in Germany.
When the New People Online questioned Ambassador Christian Kargboâ€™s dignity shortly after his appoint to represent our country at Brussels, many people including myself referred to it as political propaganda.Â Few days ago, an anonymous writer revealed to the world what is currently happening at the Sierra Leonean embassy and the ambassadorâ€™s home in Brussels, which clearly vindicates New People Online.Â Is the Foreign Minister Haja Zainab Hawa Bangura aware? If yes, what has she done in that regard?
â€œSierra Leonean woman under bondage in Libyaâ€ was a report published last year by both New People Online and Sierra Express Media implicating Dr. Mohamed Samura; a political chameleon who is still serving as Sierra Leonean ambassador in Libya.Â What did the Foreign Affairs Minister Haja Zainab Hawa Bangura do in that regard?
Last Month, the deputy Sierra Leonean Ambassador in Guinea slapped one of the female staff attached to the embassy and it was reported by Standard Times Press.Â What did the Foreign Affairs Minister Haja Zainab Hawa Bangura do in that regard?
The Sierra Leonean ambassador to Russia, Dr. Saliu Turay, is believed to have been declared persona non-grata by Russia authorities after his family was found guilty of immoral acts.Â Is it not shameful for an official representative of a whole republic to be expelled from the country he is assigned? Is it true that before Ambassador Saliu Turay was expelled the Russian authorities made several complaints to Haja Zainab Hawa Bangura who failed to act before time?
So Self-styled commentator Mr. Sherman, now that you are parading in the middle of nowhere with APC symbols on your head simply because you come from the northern part of Sierra Leone and therefore think now is your time to gain political recognition through sycophantic support of the ruling system even when failing, and blind loyalty to the president even when he is wrong, has it ever occurred to you that the above retrospectives are dangerous signs for our countryâ€™s foreign relations?
Finally, let me rephrase and reintegrate my main question again: did Haja Hawa Zainab Bangura mandate Ambassador Stevens in Germany to collect Le 300,000 equivalent in Euros (600â‚¬) for citizenship renunciation forms?
Is president Koromaâ€™s attitudinal change campaign and the loudly acclaimed rebranding effort holding water? Only the hypocrite, opportunist and tribalist believe so; I donâ€™t.Hassan B. Mansarray, Munich-Germany
