In Sierra Leone, Gbashi Gbashi Lawyers at Each Others Throats

Reports monitored by the Awareness Times newspaper indicate that senior lawyers at the Law Officers Department yesterday engaged in pointing fingers at each other in relation to the massive "Gbashi Ghashi" article published by the Awareness Times newspaper with banner headline: "Gbashi Gbashi at Law Office?"

Sources have it that the lawyers were accusing each other of revealing the secret of the chopped Le380, 000, 000 (Three Hundred and Eighty Million Leones) by senior lawyers at the Law Office.

Our sources also reported that the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Oladipo Robin Mason was heard grumbling at his office that people were yesterday calling him "Gbashi Gbashi DPP" for a deal he did not receive a "single cent". He was reportedly overheard saying that he really requested for his own share of the said money, but that his request was tuned down by the Solicitor General, Tunde Cole, on grounds that he was only on contract and not a civil servant.

It could be recalled that the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abdul Serry Kamal and the Solicitor General Tunde Cole, were during the "Wanza boat issue" referred to as "Ojukokoros" for their roles in the shady Wanza deal.

However, another source close to the Solicitor General informed the Awareness Times that Mr. Tunde Cole was also alleging that the money was shared among all the staff at the law office including the messengers.

One of the messengers the Awareness Times interviewed, who pleaded for anonymity, disclosed that he was only given Le50, 000.

Meanwhile, the Awareness Times newspaper yesterday recorded several phone calls of citizens, who telephoned to vent their dissatisfaction over the "Gbashi Gbashi" act of the law officers.

Most of the callers cited the recent hit song of Emmerson, stating that the issue under review was part of the ills in society that the musician exposed in his song.

It could be recalled that the Awareness Times yesterday published a revealing article about the whopping sum of three hundred and eighty million Leones, which was meant for the general citizens, but was selfishly diverted to the pockets of greedy senior lawyers.

We continue to monitor the situation.
