Awareness Times has been able to extract from a Sierra Leone Broadcasting Corporation television programme, the first set of photographs of SLPP Presidential Nominee Julius Maada Bio as videotaped by SLBC TV crew at the Bo City Coronation Field on Friday. Contrary to initial reports, there is absolutely no damage to Maada Bios face. Rather, he appears with a huge plaster right over the top of his partly shaven head.

The programme in which the video shots of Maada Bio were aired was that of the Publisher of Awareness Times giving her analysis to the Nation of what happened in Bo. It was a Live Discussion programme. At the end of the Discussion, Dr. Blyden has made three summarised points to the people of Sierra Leone.

Firstly that the Government and Police are continuing to show a limited understanding of the seriousness of what is brewing in the political landscape.

Secondly, that Julius Maada Bio has showed a worrying lack of leadership by failing to make a Statement to the Nation, well over 48 hours since arson, murder and extreme violence rocked Bo City in reaction to events surrounding his very person. She opines that Silence means Acquiescence.

Finally, Dr. Blyden has made a call for President Koroma to release the Report of the Shears-Moses Commission of Enquiry into the March 2009 political violence between the APC and SLPP in Freetown, Pujehun and Kenema and for all the recommendations therein to be implemented swiftly.

All photo snapshots captured from SLBC TV are reproduced below:
