Hon. Gevao Bows

A stunt PAOPA Member of Parliament from Kailahun district, Hon. Hindolo Moiwo Gevao has been seen to have eaten his words following his latest retraction and apology to Parliament after he has accepted that Parliament is indeed corrupt through an interview by BBC Umaro Fofana.

He was summoned before the parliamentary committee on ethics just like an ordinary citizen to respond to questions from MPs on his interview with BBC in which he stated that it is true that Parliament of Sierra Leone is corrupt.

When asked by the committee chairman on what he made up of his interview with BBC, he said his interview with BBC was not meant to smear the image of Parliament to which he belongs neither to bring down the image of the leadership of Parliament.

 He beg the committee on ethics to resolve the issue at once after been press down to say what the committee wants; Hon. Gevao finally apologized to his colleague MPs to forgive him over his allegation that Parliament is indeed corrupt.

It could be recalled that following his interview with BBC Umaro Fofana, the leadership of Parliament suspended Hon. Hindolo Moiwo Gevao as Legislative Committee Chairman and was further banned from speaking in the Well of Parliament until the leadership deems it right.

It could also be recalled that following his suspension alongside of three members of parliament by the leadership of Parliament, several civil society organizations and other members of the public came in their defence by putting out press releases against the action of parliament’s leadership.  Hon. Gevao was also quoted to rained curses on the nation should citizens fail to defend the affected MPs who according to him were speaking the truth. He was also quoted to have restated his claims against parliament when he was interviewed by one of the media outlets in Sierra Leone, TICHA LEMP LEMP.

However, his latest retraction and apology to Parliament has been viewed as a complete betrayal to the many citizens who stood with him when he was suspended.
