"It is time for me to expose what Lilian Lisk told me inside her house"

Publisher of the Awareness Times Newspaper, Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden, used the Press Briefing yesterday called by Lawyers for Hon. Afsatu Kabba, as an opportunity to inform journalists of her intention to be one of the defence witnesses for Afsatu Kabba in the matter charged. According to her, Afsatu Kabba is being victimized by Lilian Lisk of the Okeky Fishing Agencies.

Sylvia Blyden shocked the gathering of newsmen when she revealed that Lilian Lisk has invited her in the past few months, on at least two occasions, to the latters residence at 4 Damba Road in Murray Town with the sole purpose of discussing the very issues now in front of the Court. Blyden expressed her intention to disclose certain facts in Open Court in defence of Afsatu Kabba.

Sylvia Blyden told journalists that they could recall that lately she had stood firmly in her defence of Hon. Afsatu Kabba and so yesterday, she wanted the public to know why. She said the reason was because she was invited by Madam Lilian Lisk sometime last year and again in January this year to discuss what Lisk had alleged to be intransigence of Hon. Afsatu Kabba in "bending the laws to suit Lilian Lisk".

"It is time for me to expose what Lilian Lisk told me inside her house," Sylvia Blyden told the media at the Roxy Building Freetown Travel Agents offices of the husband of the arraigned Minister.

Dr. Sylvia Blyden insisted that what Lilian Lisk told her was not only spoken to her as a journalist but as someone whom Lisk believed shared friendship with Afsatu Kabba. She revealed that whilst she was growing up at Juba, Lilian Lisk was one of her neighbours and so their relationship spanned "many, many, many years" which long-term relationship caused Lisk to say the things she told Blyden.

"When the case starts and I start to speak about what transpired between me and Lilian Lisk inside her house at 4 Damba Road, Murray Town then the world will know between Lilian Lisk and Afsatu Kabba who is the villain," Blyden assured.
