COMMENTS & OPINIONS  

Ignorant Politicians & Confused Preachers of the Old Testament & Gospel
By Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden

With respect to Section 26(2)(a)(i)/(ii) of the National Constitution and with respect to Section 17(2) of Part III of the Public Order Act, the Inspector-General of Police is well within his constitutional and legal rights to proactively slam a temporary ban on political rallies till further notice. Whilst there might be concerns over this, it is a fact that old men, lawyers and elected legislators (MPs) are normally the ones Society looks up to for guidance with these concerns but if such persons have lost their way and/or are ignorant of Laws, then Society is cursed.

 

Indeed, one of Sierra Leones biggest curses is an abundance of ignorant politicians. It is shameful to look on they question the legality of the I.G. to slam such temporary ban following a palpably existent threat of more loss of lives & properties in further public disorders. It is also shameful to listen as political followers are misled that only PPRC has such powers!

 

Another curse on this land is a few shameless old men with gray hairs. In other countries, old men with gray hairs (PUAWUI in mende language) are revered and respected because they have acquired wisdom which makes them comport themselves well.

 

Now, if a so-called Gospel preacherman ever wonders why no-one is hurling insults at other well respected old men in this country, he only needs to study how these other old wise men comport themselves as compared to other shameless PUAWUIs who do not hesitate to treat their readers to streams of rudeness from their inked flowing pens.

 

Next time a certain Reverend wants to preach the gospel, he should first realise that we are cursed with shameless old men in the same way we are cursed with ignorant politicians.
