President Koroma governs Sa. Leone by example as he travels on economy class to and from China
Demonstrating the true trappings of a good and credible leader, President Ernest Bai Koroma showed the world that he is governing Sierra Leone by example when he flew all the way to China and back on economy class during his recent State visit to the Republic of China , to lend meaning to the austerity period in the country.

Why is PEC Deceiving Public?Trumpeting Deceit and Propaganda against EDSA and the Energy Ministry is Distasteful.
Early this week, the public was stunned by the emergence of a rather strange Alliance, not within the SLPP, not of any political parties; this alliance is of Civil Society! Yes, out of the blues, the Alliance of Civil Society on Energy ( Never heard of this) was inaugurated this week, through a press release babbling about things they know little or nothing about.

RENAISSANCE MOVEMENT AND THE SLPP: the familiar hidden hand of a political mission
Borrowing a few words from Wikipedia, Civil Society Organizations are an "aggregate of non-governmental organizations and institutions that manifest interests in promoting the welfare and will of citizens." Civil society includes the family and the private sphere, referred to as the "third sector" of society, distinct from government, business and partisan politics.

Ferdinand Nahimana, Hassan Ngeze and Jean-Bosco Barayagwiza; the most popular journalists in Rwanda prior to, and later orchestrators of the 1994 Genocide that claimed the lives of more than an estimated UN figure of eight hundred thousand (800,000) people within a period of one hundred (100) days of bloodbath.

A Fidgety Opposition and The Quest For Nationhood
Across the globe, even oil producing countries are removing subsidies on fuel and other petroleum products. It is basically a global drive to maximize revenue generation and ensure fiscal stability in the face of the global economic meltdown.

SLPP and failed Conspirators against a Popular President
The first Walk to Work protest took place in Uganda on 11 April 2011, and was organised by the pressure group Activists for Change (A4C), which included the Forum for Democratic Change, the party of three-time presidential candidate Kizza Besigye. It was a protest whereby Ugandans denied their right to protest, used innovative thinking to gather in large numbers under the guise of walking to work.

Kamarainba Might not be Donald Trump but US Election is a Lesson for APC
Donald Trump is widely perceived as a man who fought his battle alone. Despite not having any major endorsement, he strived his way through all political difficulties, and at the end he was elected as the 45th President of the great United States of America (USA). Similarly, this is a genuine attribute of the chairman and leader and now 2018 Presidential candidate of the Alliance Democratic Party (ADP), Mohamed Kamarainba Mansaray who also fights his battles alone.

ECOWAS Court cannot reverse a Supreme Court verdict or enforce on a member state an undomesticated Treaty
When I listened to the MAMBA TV ‘s audio interview of people it claimed were approached on the streets ( Though there is no evidence by way of video streaming or pictures that the so-called interview was conducted through random sampling ) , I learnt once again that some of our people are wallowing in ignorance and only argue from an emotional, instead of conceptual and sound analytical perspective.

That Unfair Criticism of Our President
I have been noted to write hot criticisms of His Excellency the President although he is my APC party Leader so I will never expect other journalists not to criticize him as well. However, criticisms must be based on facts and evidence brought forward to justify the criticism.

COMMENTS & OPINIONS
Despite the challenges, Sierra Leoneans are paying attention
Despite the current socio-economic challenges facing the country, majority of Sierra Leoneans are paying attention to the efforts of the government to turn things around for the betterment of everyone. Even in times of trails and difficulties, our people have shown the capacity to keep their eyes on the ball; they had shown resilience during the Ebola epidemic that almost brought the country to its knees.

Isha Johansen, Corruption & the Court of Public Opinion
In Sierra Leone, always pray not to get an invitation from the Anti Corruption Commission. The immediate response from the court of public opinion is to find you guilty of corruption and demand your jail sentence without any trial in a competent court of law.
