FROM THE DESK OF

Abdul Karim Kabia

 

Editor, Awareness Times Newspaper, 17 Garrison Street, Freetown.

 

To:    Mr. Brima Sannoh

         Editor-in-Chief

         Torchlight Newspaper

        17 Bathurst Street, Freetown

 

Monday 6th June 2011

 

My Dear Brother,

 

RE: MY ALLEGED COMPLAINT AGAINST YOUR PERSON TO THE IMC

 

I write to thank you for bringing to my attention the contents of a letter from Independent Media Commission (IMC) dated 3rd June 2011, inviting you to 1st Hearing of Complaint made against you by Editor of Awareness Times newspaper to be held on Tuesday 7th June 2011.

 

Let me inform you that if you indeed receive such a letter from the IMC, it is just one of the numerous blunders (misbehaviors) that are synonymous with the Bernadette Cole headed IMC, which the Awareness Times Newspaper has been publicly highlighting for quite some time now.

 

I empathize with you for being a victim of the IMCs latest blunder, which we at the Awareness Times are already used to, as we have been victimized on several instances by the IMC.

 

If you could recall, I have sternly warned the IMC on at least two occasions to put their house in order and desist from their attempts to use me as a tool to fight what I consider as spiteful Causes. I have made it clear to the IMC that I am one of the few well-trained and professionally qualified journalists in Sierra Leone and that as Editor of Sierra Leones most widely read newspaper, I am holding a very senior and responsible position in the countrys media landscape.

Thus, using my name and position in trivialities is totally unacceptable to me and my newspaper.

 

Brima, haven stated the above, let me here assure you that I have NEVER complained you to the IMC. Why should I complain you when you have never offended me or my newspaper? Infact, just a few weeks ago, you came out with a strong editorial piece in support of my Publisher, Dr. Sylvia Blyden so for the IMC to even promote an illusion that us two gentlemen are at odds with each other is a cause for alarm. I consider it an attempt to incite Hate among Newspaper Editors.

 

Brima Sannoh, please kindly remain to always be the brother that I consider you to be.

Yours truly,

 

 

Abdul Karim Kabia

Editor (Ag.) of Awareness Times Newspaper
