An Open Letter to Sierra Leones Opposition Leader John Benjamin
The time will come when the SLPP will realise that regardless of how much you "break your backs", some of the current batch of people making up the local "International Community" are still committed to their 2007 regime-change ideals which means they want President Koroma firmly back in the driving seat come 2012. This is especially so for operatives within the US Embassy! You can start by finding out the real reason why certain people ensured June Carter Perry was hounded out of this place...! Sir, if you are counting on International support to give you the level playing field needed, you are making a huge mis-calculation. The day you (SLPP) re-orientate your mindset to realising that these local International Community are avowed enemies of the SLPPs 2012 success, the day you will have taken the first step towards winning 2012...

Sierra Leone Association of Journalists
Good morning colleague journalists and members of the public. On this World Press Freedom Day on the 3rd of May 2010, I wish to thank all those who have made journalism easy for us in Sierra Leone in the last one year. We may not have been the most pampered, but have certainly not been the most persecuted in a world where while some see us as friends and heroes, others see us as enemies and villains. I hope those who have unnecessarily perceived Sierra Leonean journalists as enemies and intimidated, harassed and even attacked us will come to realise that we are only performing a cardinal responsibility to inform our people and speak on their behalf, no matter the odds that are stacked against us.
