It Is Still Not Late for the APC and Ernest Koroma to redeem themselves

MY OWN VIEWPOINT:

It has been difficult for this writer (Sylvia Olayinka Blyden) to meet a single woman in Sierra Leone so far who has endorsed President Ernest Bai Koromas silence over the matter of allegations of brutal gang-raping in broad daylight of hardworking female Sierra Leonean breadwinners who had only gone to earn a living in this very harsh economic climate.

President Koroma, by all indications, seems to be unaware and painfully oblivious of his dwindling support amongst his womenfolk but based on the responses and feedback that I have been receiving from all over this beautiful country, his support amongst the women of Sierra Leone and a significant number of his male compatriots has suffered a very serious dent right now over his handling of the reported rapes.

I believe it is still not too late for our President to make amends with us irate women of Sierra Leone. He came in with tremendous goodwill from women. Sierra Leonean Women appreciated him when he gave us our first female Brigadier and our first female Chief Justice.

Over to Mister President!
