In Sierra Leone, CGG Holds Confab on Africa Charter on Democracy
A local non governmental organization Campaign for Good Governance (CGG) on Wednesday 1st December 2010 organized a one day conference on the Africa Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance at the Kona Lodge in Freetown.

Sierra Leone's President Koroma Accused of Lack of Due Diligence
Serious concerns are being raised over a seeming penchant of the President of Sierra Leone appending his signature to documents he might not have properly read in a glaring show of lack of due diligence at the Office of the President. Even as the embarrassment over the 3-Years Turnaround outright lies is yet to ease, it has now emerged that President Koroma on 3rd December 2010 appended his red-inked signature to the official release of his list of new Cabinet which contained a serious error which has now been unfortunately transmitted all over the world.

SLPP Suspends J.B. Dauda & Borbor Sawyer
“We are trying to build up Sierra Leone’s democratic climate & culture and so we will not encourage anyone to blur the budding democratic landscape for our people. APC should not poach from SLPP membership. The APC surely has capable people from the South-East within their party. We, in the SLPP are not in alliance with the APC neither do we desire any power-sharing arrangements with them. Any of our SLPP members who join their APC Government’s Cabinet will face suspension and possible eventual expulsion.”

APC Spokesman Apologises; Blames John Ben’s Fine Writing Skills for his Error
The APC Party Spokesman and Government Minister has last week Wednesday December 1st 2010, apologised to John Benjamin, SLPP National Leader for making the outlandish claim that going by the November 27th speech of Benjamin, the youths of Tonkolili, who rioted and destroyed African Minerals equipment in Kemadugu, had been incited by the SLPP Leader’s speech. This retraction of his words followed a release from the SLPP pointing out that Benjamin could not incite an incident that had since occurred before the said speech. According to Alpha Khan’s now debunked logic, Mr. John Benjamin’s speech he delivered at Makeni on November 27th 2010, two days after the riots, was so well written that it could not have been written in one day and so the reference to the riots within the speech showed fore-knowledge of the November 25th 2010 riots as it “might have been anticipated”.
