The public confession by Sierra Leoneís Foreign Minister over National Television that she grovels in front of Arab men in order to get them to buy her air tickets and other emoluments continues to be the talk of the country as citizens express amazement at the words that tumbled out of the mouth of the woman who is supposed to be the countryís number one diplomat.

At numerous entertainment spots in the country last weekend, it was the talk of the country as many citizens wonder at the continued retention of a woman who could make such confessions over National Television and broadcast Live over radio airwaves as happened last Thursday June 17th 2010.

"I sing. I dance to beg money," she had said in a Live Press Conference in Freetown, adding, "Me, they call me the international beggar".

Continuing her amazing narration of how she demeans her person, she had freely explained over National SLBC Television of an encounter she had inside the offices of the Prime Minister of Kuwait, His Highness Sheikh Nasser Mohammed Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah.

"Listen Mr. Prime Minister, me, I need a ticket oh! I want to go to Lisse in France but I donít have any money," she had explained what she said to the Kuwaiti Prime Minister as over National Television, she was shown expansively gesticulating her hands as she illustrated how she begged the Arab man inside his offices.

She continued to explain that she was never ashamed to beg Arab men for money to help her with cash and air tickets thus criss-crossing all over those States. "So, you see, me, I am not ashamed to beg; that I will not hide. I dance, I sing, I beg for money," the Sierra Leone Foreign Minister stated as she revealed how her begging of the Kuwaiti Prime Minister yielded dividends for her. She expressed how she even wept whilst begging so as to make people "feel sorry" for her.

Zainab Bangura then compared herself to President Koroma by saying "He is shy. He is not like me. Not me, I am not shy. I beg. I shout and I even scream".
