NEWS BRIEFS ARE SUMMARIES OF REPORTS CULLED FROM OTHER LOCAL NEWSPAPERS FOR THE BENEFIT OF OUR ONLINE READERS

Chorister Denies Love Making With Pastor

Victoria Yakor Sesay is reported to have denied love allegations with Pastor Mahoi of the Temple of Truth Deliverance Ministry in Freetown. Yakor, a Chorister at the church, is said to have been adopted by Pastor Mahoi and his wife since she was a little girl. Rumours broke out however that after a while when the girl started reaching maturity, she got into a love or sexual relationship with Pastor Mahoi, whose wife is reported to have let the cat out of the bag. This brought a massive scandal for the man of God, whose life has led many to the fellowship of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. While it is clear that the relationship between the pastor and his wedded wife has strained as a result of this, unconfirmed reports now indicate that the man of God has gone ahead and married Victoria Yakor Sesay, thereby breaking his marital vow. Amidst all this, Victoria Yakor has been on the denying side.

Fullahs Donates to Bo Government Hospital

The Fullah Progressive Union, Georgia USA Branch, has donated medical supplies to the Bo Government Hospital. The drugs are meant to alleviate the difficulties faced by the hospital and to improve the health care delivery system in that part of the country. Mr. Abu Bakar Bah, President of the Union, disclosed that his organization is non political, and geared only at providing much needed humanitarian assistance to people in difficulties.

Mines Minister Wanted in Parliament

The Minister of Mineral Resources, Abu Bakarr Jalloh, is reportedly wanted in parliament to shed light on the ongoing Nevata-Swan field conflict over the No. 12 tailings in Kono. According to reports, he was supposed to appear before parliament on Tuesday but neither he nor his deputy surfaced. The Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Mineral Resources, Hon. Augustine Torto of the All Peoples Congress (APC), told parliament that the minister has been very evasive to the committee when ever he is called. He disclosed that the minister was out of the country but any time he comes, he will appear before parliament.

Proprietor of Nameya Islamic Mission in Hot Waters

The Proprietor of Nameya Islamic Mission in Bo, Alhaji S.B Kallon, is alleged to be involved in mischievous activities contrary to moral standards. His alleged misdeeds have reportedly forced members of the mission to recommend to the Minister of Education, Youth and Sports for his immediate replacement. The mission has reportedly recommended that he must be thoroughly investigated before even thinking about retaining him as proprietor. Reports have alleged that Alhaji Kallon has illegally sold the missions land and misappropriated funds meant for the growth of the mission. Alhaji S.B Kallon has constantly denied the allegations, saying he is as innocent as the word itself.

Police on Red Alert to Curb Crime in the City

The Assistant Inspector General of the Sierra Leone Police (SLP) in charge of Crime Services, Francis A. Munu, has said the force is on red alert to defend the city and country as a whole against activities of armed robbers and other criminal gangs. He said the police will frown at any information that will cause disaffection or security threat. Reports say, anybody found wanting of such an unpatriotic act will be severely dealt with according to law. This comes following the spate of armed robberies that have resulted in the deaths of two people including a British national and the recent arrest of a former military officer, who reportedly passed an intelligence report to the police that has been found to be bogus and concocted.

Guinea Junta Invites Kabbah

Reports carried in local newspapers indicate that the junta leader of the CNDD military regime in neighbouring Guinea, Conakry, Captain Moussa Datis Camara, has personally invited the former President of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Alhaji Dr. Ahmed Tejan Kabbah, through the Guinean Embassy in Freetown. According to reports, Kabbah has already traveled to Guinea to hold a three hour closed-door meeting with the junta leaders.Reports say the former president first visited the home of the late General Lansana Conteh and offered prayers for him before proceeding to the Guinean capital for the meeting with the junta regime. Reports indicate that President Koroma is well informed about Kabbahs trip.
