Today, January 22nd 2010, is an important day in the annals of the Wara Wara Yagala Chiefdom of Koinadugu District. The Chiefdom, within which the District Headquarters town of Kabala falls, will be electing a new Paramount Chief. Koinadugu remains the definite swing district of Sierra Leone and usually is a political indicator of which of the two main parties will gain a foothold in the National polity.

Therefore, as 2012 Elections loom in the horizon, the elections to be held in Kabala today have been treated with the utmost seriousness by the two main political parties (APC & SLPP) to the extent that well known supporters of the two parties are reported to have placed themselves into two camps and engaged in vicious running battles with each other; smashing up vehicle windscreens, vandalising private residences and setting Lister generators on fire.

The SLPP camp is reported to be supporting the candidacy of one Rtd. Col A.G.Y. Mansaray whilst the APC camp is supporting the candidacy of one Kondowulay Pagay Mansaray. However, competent indications are that the latter might not have an easy contest despite the massive financial clout and ruling APC Party support he is enjoying.

As a probable result of seeing signs on the wall that touted APC candidate might face difficulties, APC Leader, President Koroma has yesterday sent Police AIG North to Kabala with a message that he has no candidate he is supporting.

"President Koroma cannot afford to be associated with any candidate that loses in Kabala at this time. This is a prelude to the 2012 Elections and we all know that Kabala is a political indicator so it was very wise for him to distance himself from Pagay Mansaray," said Marah T. Marrah, a political observer in Kabala.
