Sylvia Blyden back in Freetown Preparing to teach lessons in Criminal Libel

Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden, Sierra Leones only female newspaper Publisher arrived back in Freetown late last night following five days she spent in the South-eastern part of the country. Speaking to this writer on arrival, Blyden revealed that her mission to mainly Jawei Chiefdom in Kailahun District, was "extremely successful; one of the best times I have had this year".

Awareness Times will give full coverage to Blydens trip next week.

However, Dr. Blyden also assured that she was last night perusing certain newspaper articles published in her absence and would be taking "long overdue" prudent legal action shortly. She asserted that she would be "very soon teaching certain criminals some lessons in criminal libel".

"When President Koromas Press Secretary Shekito continued to publish defamatory materials against me, I finally said enough is enough and then proceeded to expose Shekitos ill-suitedness for the sacred position of Presidential Press Secretary. Probably as a result of my exposure of Shekitos published indiscretions, the President rightfully decided not to include Shekito on his most recent two trips to Nigeria last week and Stockholm this week," Blyden posited.

However, after the President rightfully decided not to travel to ECOWAS or to the European Union with a liability like Shekito, she lamented thus: "after he was dropped from President Koromas entourage to Nigeria and Sweden, all of a sudden, Shekitos allies started to chime some discredited nefarious lies and manufactured even more lies to shore up Shekitos retreated position".

"But thank God for Sierra Leones Criminal Libel Laws is all I will say for now," Blyden said last night, adding that, "only a big fool will allow someone who jumped bail to now use him as an editor publishing vile, defamatory trash sent in from the sanctuary of distant shores."

"Fool or not, someone is going to face some serious legal music very, very soon" Blyden promised.

Meanwhile, as we went to press, reports from the United Kingdom indicates that a Public Relations firm which works for some of the discredited African Leaders, has been hired by a certain group of persons (name withheld for now), just in the past few days, for a fat fee to do damage control for the indiscreet publications in the newspaper of the Presidential Press Secretary such as the ones that described British as hypocrites, cowards, to be treated like scumbags, etc. etc. etc.

It is not clear how much damage control any PR Firm will be able to do with Sheka Tarawalie still not actually sacked from State House but only dropped from international Presidential delegations. What is however an indisputable fact is that the British and Nigerians are very closely watching this Presidential Press Secretary saga in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
