Ruling APC Beats Opposition SLPP by 202 votes in Moyamba Elections

The ruling All Peoples Congress (APC) party has won the Bye-Elections conducted in Moyamba today March 19th 2011 to replace a Local Councillor who recently passed way. The APC scored 647 votes (60%) to the SLPPs 445 votes (40%). This Moyamba Ward used to be an SLPP stronghold and is part of the Constituency represented by the SLPPs Hon. Veronica Kadie Sesay, one of the die-hard supporters of Mr. Maada Bio.

Mr. Bio actually launched his Moyamba campaign inside this particular Ward. At the polling station representing the precise place where Bio launched his Campaign, the SLPP polled 11 votes and the APC polled 77 votes.

Ahmed Ken-Kamara, the losing Young Generation Leader for the SLPPs Southern Province Branch had predicted that the SLPP would lose the seat as a sign of voter-protest over both his loss and that of one Mohamed Jabbie, the former Bo District SLPPs P.R.O. whom is alleged to have been viciously beaten up by supporters of Maada Bio inside Moyamba town during the Southern Province intra-party SLPP Elections held two weekends ago.

Awareness Times was unable to get a hold of Ken-Kamara but one of the SLPP youths in the Ward who says he admires Ken-Kamara and condemns the removal of the dynamic youth leader, openly told Awareness Times that the results for today is a warning shot to the party that Hon. Veronica Sesay was not doing her homework well in that Constituency. We are trying to get the opinions of both Hon. Veronica Sesay and SLPP Scribe Mr. J.J. Saffa who was the SLPP Executive member assigned to that campaign. Both of them have been incommunicado since the results were collated.
