As Freetown goes Unsafe & Filthy...Bio to replicate Zambiaís Sata

The main opposition contender for next yearís 2012 Presidential elections Julius Maada Bio has promised to deliver for his SLPP party, victory of a manner similar to that recently seen in Zambia when the opposition candidate, Mr. Sata easily removed the one-term sitting incument President.

 

Here in Sierra Leone, the Northern province will easily sway towards the ruling APCís Ernest Bai Koroma whilst the South-East will sway towards the opposition Bio. The real battle will be for the hearts and minds of the residents of the Western Area which hosts the capital city of Freetown.

 

If reports of recent increase in armed robberies and  the unsightly huge uncollected garbage littering many streets of Freetown are anything to go by, then the residents of Freetown might end up to make the prediction of Bio come true.

 

Terrified residents of Kaningo Riverside Lumley in Freetown have confirmed that in the early hours of yesterday Thursday September 29, 2011, they were awoken by over six robbers armed with guns, cutlasses, knives, and sticks. In an interview with one of the robbery victims, Joshua Sesay of 35 Kaningo Riverside, he told this press that at about 2:00am robbers forcefully entered houses and started beating the hell out of the residents whilst collecting monies, mobile phones and personal belongings. One woman was stripped stark naked and was to be gang-raped but was saved by the strong youthful resistance her neighbours put up. The residents blame slow response time of Lumley Police station.

 

In addition to such increasing reports of lack of safety is the inability of the APC-run City Council to clear growing garbage mounds off some streets making those streets turn to one huge toilet heap.

 

If APC continues like this in Freetown, filth and insecurity will give Maada Bio the Presidency next year. And he might just win very easily too.
