An April 6th 2010 article in a local tabloid has exposed Parliamentary Minority Leader, Hon. Emmanuel Tommy as having a Le250,000,000 (Two Hundred and Fifty Million Leones) deal made in the Year 2008 with President Koroma in which Tommy got sum of Le250,000,000 cash in hand to complete a Government hospital for Kono that Tommy had allegedly abandoned halfway through its said completion. Tommy, who is nicknamed as "Sell-Game Tommy" because of his amazing propensity to sell out the interests of the opposition SLPP party to the ruling APC, is reported to have recently "declared" his intention to be the next President. This runs quite contrary to the desires of the sitting President and the said declaration might have spurred exposure of the Le250,000,000 transaction. During the exposure of Tommy by President Koroma in Kono, it is reported that Tommy tried to cover-up but the President was determined to expose him. A Commentary on this Sell-Game imbroglio and its effect on a democratic Sierra Leone will soon be run in this newspaper.
