A Satiric but Thought-provoking Analysis of the Behaviour of the Newspaper publisher who doubles as Ernest Bai Koromaís appointed Presidential Press Secretary that Sierra Leoneans are currently CURSED to have to co-exist with!
A RONSHO is sort of like a Sierra Leonean version of the evil mystical creature that the English call a leprechaun. The main distinguishing characteristics of a RONSHO are three: firstly, it is very short in size. Secondly, it has an unkempt, ill-kept appearance and finally, it possesses an extremely evil mindset which causes it to use its spiritual influence over others to achieve its goals. The RONSHO when it comes near you will promise you the heavens but in reality, those who allow themselves to be associated with a hate-spewing, embittered, vengeful RONSHO usually end up in an unfortunate manner. Oodat geh yase...
A RONSHO walks around with a bag and in this bag the short, evil-minded creature possesses a variety of evil concoctions and dangerous items that it can use to unleash serious evil against other persons. For example, suddenly meeting up with a RONSHO who was unprepared to meet a human being can cause the RONSHO to look into his bag of evil and bring forth an infective chickenpox like rash on your skin.
Now, there is a character up in an office at State House that can be figuratively characterised as the RONSHO at State House. This ĎRonshoí is short; very short. He is also evil; very evil and he is unkempt and ill-appearing; very unkempt! His name is Sheka Shekito Tarawalie and just as the brou-ha-ha over the mystical State Lodge Ariogbo was dying down, it appears this ĎRONSHOí has now chosen to bring some more entertainment for the public with his unique ability to detect non-existent confessional statements!
This Sheka Tarawalie RONSHO-ISH character will want the world to believe that part of his unique evil spiritual powers is to have his newspaper detect non-existent, armed robbersí confessional statements in the same way the ARIOGBO detected those Ďwitchesí recently.
This STATE HOUSE ĎRONSHOí is now having his private newspaper inform the world that a well-respected local newspaper publisher is the owner of a Jeep that has been used to violently rob innocent people. Where is his newspaperís evidence of this discovery? Nowhere to be seen! Has anyone in the Police corroborated his newspaperís nonsense? Nope! But in the mind of the newspaper of the RONSHO at State House, Armed Robbers have confessed to using Sylvia Blydenís black jeep to rob all those prominent businesses in Sierra Leone so the public must be fed the evil lies from the brains of the newspaper of the STATE HOUSE ĎRONSHOí.
It does not matter to this Sheka ĎRONSHOí Tarawalieís newspaper that by publishing such dangerous lies, he was illegally inciting the public against Sylvia Blyden! Oh No! Just like a typical evil, short, unkempt RONSHO, this short, dreadful looking thing located around President Ernest Koroma at State House cares nothing for another personís safety. His evilness knows no bounds just like a typical RONSHO.
However, the ĎRONSHOí at State House might have finally reached his Waterloo as this newspaper will now proceed to expose him systematically over the coming editions. When a RONSHO is getting out of hand, folklore says you throw roasted benni-seeds along the path for him and you get him! Well, a lot of benni-seeds are now being roasted for this STATE HOUSE ĎRONSHOí.
President Koroma should know that people usually shy away from a RONSHO-LIKE character even if the RONSHO promises you the sky. Why the President continues to keep such a RONSHO-like character hobbling around him is anyoneís guess! However, since it will now appear that the Presidentís appointed Press Secretary¬† has opened a newspaper to expose innocent citizensí lives with his dangerous RONSHO evil mindset, we surely, most surely,¬† are going to roast enough benni-seeds for President Koromaís Press Secretary. Enough is enough!
