Can Usu Boie Save his Fatherís Party? - REPRODUCED BY POPULAR DEMAND

This article, which is from the pen of Sierra Leone's most formidable and truthful journalist, Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden, is being reproduced by popular demand. Our attention has been drawn to a joke of a Press Statement by J.J. Saffa which we will properly handle in tomorrow's edition. The question to be asked is whether the entire SLPP Security & Intelligence Network which was created by Saffa himself, are suffering from mental problems as they are amongst the sources who witnessed as J.J. Saffa entered and left Vice President Sam-Sumana's house that day. MEANWHILE, PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR OUR POPULAR ARTICLE ON SUSPECTED BLACKMAILING TACTICS OF J.J. SAFFA USING THE UNITY NEWSPAPER AS A SOURCE OF INCOME.


Can Usu Boie Save his Fatherís Party?
By Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden
First Published on Sep 5, 2011, 13:12

On Friday August 26th 2011 at around 21:45GMT, my sources monitored in the thick of the darkness of the night as Jacob Jusu Saffa (aka J.J. BlOOD), the erstwhile National Secretary-General of the main opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) paid a clandestine visit to the Murray Town residence of the sitting Honourable Vice President Sam-Sumana. JJ BLOOD was welcomed quietly by VPís younger brother and quickly ushered up the stairs.

 

Factually, let me reveal today that JJ BLOOD arrived at Sam-Sumanaís house empty-handed but he left at precisely 22:24GMT, furtively looking around like a seedy criminal, with a large black plastic bag in his hands; which plastic bag was shaped in such a manner as to leave little doubt that huge bundles of rolls of leones notes were possibly contained inside it.

 

On August 24th 2011, the SLPP Unity newspaper had published an old 2009 Letter authored by John Benjamin which contained some rather embarrassing contents about the Vice President. To be fair to Sam-Sumana, those contents had been effectively and legally laid to rest but no serious politician wants such information to be dredged up into the public domain about him especially at a time like this.

 

Hence the correlation between JJ BLOODís nocturnal secret visit and the unexplained disappearance of the John Benjamin letter from subsequent pages of Unity newspaper should not be difficult to arrive at.

 

As long as B.W. Bockarie is Editor of Unity, JJ BLOOD has demonstrated he has absolute control over the pages of Unity newspaper far more than even the putative ĎSLPP Chairman/Leaderí John Benjamin and those of his shameless and pathetic weaklings of National Executive Officers like Sulaiman Banja Tejansie and Joe Kallon! An utterly pathetic situation when Joe Kallon over SLBC TV and Sulaiman Banja Tejansie, to me directly, disgraced SLPP and themselves by promising what they had no control over! Shameful!

 

Anyway, it should not be hard to surmise that JJ BLOOD might be controlling the Unity newspaper as a means of income-generation through blackmail hustling such as late night visits to Sam-Sumanaís house. Shamefully, this is what the SLPP has been reduced to; a party of Rudeness, Djamba-Smokers, Violence, Mammy-Cussers and Hustlers who use the party as a front to make money whilst attacking the credibility of self-respecting journalists. They do not mind to label hard working female journalists as morally-loose women and they do not mind to refuse to retract and apologise when that is the only decent thing a decent party should have done! Shameless party! No wonder they are now mammy-cussing even Lansana Fadika, the putative No. 3 man in SLPP hierarchy. The whole country listened as Lansana Fadika broke down in tears last weekend over Monologue Radio as he recounted the Mammy Cuss he recently faced from within his own party.

 

Anyway, having prefaced with the above, my main point though for today is that in the face of the Mammy-Cuss, Djamba-smoking, Blackmail Hustling and Violence that we have now associated the currently unserious SLPP with, Alhaji Usman Boie-Kamara has yesterday thrown the gauntlet down. Usu Boie says he will not allow his late Fatherís party to be reduced to what the likes of Hustlers like J.J. BLOOD and his like-minded Djamba-smokers and Mammy-Cussers have reduced the party to. Boie-Kamara is not going to run away from the SLPP. He is staying within to clean up from within.

 

I personally wish Usu Boie all the best possible luck in his crusade. Congrats Usman Boie-Kamara. You made many Sierra Leoneans proud yesterday Ė Not just SLPP members. May the SLPP emerge from the expected internal Ďdiscussionsí with more Usu Boies and less JJ BLOODS within the decision making structures. Otherwise, your party is doomed. Good luck SLPPers as you work to save your party!


Good Luck Alhaji Usman Boie Kamara! I wish you well Sir.
