It will be recalled that one of the loyal readers of this newspaper had expressed concerns over the independence of the newspaper after we published the photographs of this news team and SLPPís Presidential Aspirant Julius Maada Bio. Our Publisher responded to his concerns following which he reiterated his approval of this newspaper. We were to later learn from numerous other readers that our loyal reader is himself a Christian ĎMan of the Clothí (ie: A Preacher of the Christian Faith) who was being lectured on Christianity by a local journalist.

 

The approving reply from Pastor Tondoneh and his original letter as well as our pictorial response to his concerns are all published today on these pages for our other cherished readers.

 

From: Komba Tondoneh 

To:  DR SYLVIA BLYDEN

September 1st 2011

 

Dear Dr. Blyden.

Thank you ever so much for your clarifications and assurances. I must say most of us have never doubted your professional integrity in the exercise of your duties.

 

You have been at times at the receiving end of profanity from others but that never impeded or impaired your judgement in any shape or form. You have continued regardless of it all.

 

Once again many thanks for the good works. It was fit and proper that you actually took time off to explain yourself as you articulately did. In as much we subscribe to your philosophy, it was becoming impossible to come up with a defence in saying that it was just to cool down tension between both parties if any. But coming from the horse's mouth, no doubt hopefully you should have laid this subject to rest and closed that chapter.

 

Prior to my coming abroad many years ago, I worked at the SLBS for over five years. If you can recall in the 80s, those were the days when newspaper journalists could be just picked up and dumped inside CID police cells by any rich businessman or politician. People like Paul Kamara and many others will tell you more. Thanks to our good Lord that we now have our freedoms of speech respected and people like you are standing up for the people in our nation building. You speak for the voiceless and have stood up and continue to stand up for the victimised and the average man, woman, child in an unfair predicament.

 

Many thanks and may the Good Lord bless and guide you through out your goings out and comings in. And may He grant you the courage to continue to face up the challenges that your duties may present you and transcend above all difficulties in the exercise of such duties and in the interest of our country.

Regards,


Komba Alpha Tondoneh (aka K.T.)
