Supporters of Former Junta Leader welcomed U.S. Ambassador to their Offices with Marijuana Stench
Despite all the Marijuana (Djamba) smoking which was done even during the visit of the American Ambassador and all the lawlessness and violence, Mr. Maada Bio, has made it clear that he owes no apology to anyone for the actions of his supporters. According to Bio, no-one can hold him responsible for the acts being perpetrated by his gang of supporters. In other words, he want us to make him our President when he cannot even take up the simple responsibility of bringing his lawless supporters to order. The irony of it all is that Maada Bio recently issued a Press Statement in which he indicated just how close he was to these set of supporters... Most interestingly, Mr. Maada Bio has also indicated that he has no regrets for picking up the phone to insult and intimidate journalists; an action that has now been reported to Sierra Leone Police by Sierra Leone Association of Journalists for further action.
