SIERRA LEONE WOMENíS RIGHTS - Justice Ademusu Orders Hold on Kissi Teng Elections!

Madam Sia Iye Kendor Bandabilla was yesterday in Court in front of Justice Ademusu fighting for her right to contest for Paramount Chief; a position that her father and grandfather had once held before their deaths.

Justice Ademusu upon the application first made to him on January 22nd 2010 had placed an injunction on the holding of the Kissi Teng elections that had been slated to hold on January 25th 2010 but without the participation of Madam Bandabilla or another member of the Bandabilla family who was disqualified because he was alleged to claim rights to contest through his mother.

At yesterday's hearing, neither the National Electoral Commission nor the Eastern Provincial Secretary placed in an appearance and so the Injuction on the Elections was extended and the matter was adjourned to February 2nd 2010. Madam Bandabilla, who could not afford legal fees, had a top team of lawyers from Macauley, Bangura & Co. hired for her by the Human Rights Commission of Sierra Leone. We will keep you updated on developments.


Madam Sia: Fighting for her Rights!
