“I Have Never Preached Tribalism in this Country” Mayor Aki Sawyerr Stresses
The Mayor of the Freetown City Council, Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr, has debunked the allegations made against her by some senior government officials on Wednesday, 16th August,2022.
“I Have Never Preached Tribalism in this Country. People say they will protest. I don’t have hands in that. I didn’t involve. It is saddened for government officials to name people without evidence. It is wrong completely. I am totally against all violence. Unfortunately, it happened. How do you now try to link it to me? I believe we should practice what we preach if we want peace,” she said.
Mayor Aki-Sawyerr made these statements whilst responding to allegations made against her after the August 10th insurrection. Aki-Sawyerr said this is not the first time such allegations have been made against her. She stated that she was not involved in the August 10th protest, and the money that people alleged that she gave to protesters is not true.
She added that at this point in time government should preach peace rather than pointing fingers on people. She ended by calling on people not to get involve in violence, because it will not solve the problems in the country.
