Sorie Fofana on my Name
By Sylvia Blyden

In an attempt to make an independent journalist look like a senior member of APC Government or APC party, and with intent to sow seeds of discord, the ill-bred Sorie Fofana yesterday wrote:

 

Hon. I.B. Kargbo, Sylvia Blyden and the grossly obese Rev. Kabs-Kanu and a team of APC voluble propagandists should stand by their Vice President in this hour of need. It makes no sense if VP Sam Sumana is left to go down.

 

How did my name (Sylvia Blyden) get into his nonsense? I am independent but command huge respect where it matters; i.e.: with majority of Sierra Leoneans of all shades of opinions and all socio political classes. Only likes of Sorie who want to sell an unrepentant lying murderer and thief like Julius Maada Bio to Sierra Leoneans, will not respect my independence from APC.

 

After I received the Heiligman emails from opposition SLPP Scribes Tejansie and JJ Blood, I was intrigued as a journalist. I was still in China but immediately contacted & spoke lengthily to the Vice President. V.P. explained a lot to me and was willing to give me an exclusive interview and to arrange a 3-way phone call between Dave Kloebel, him & myself to facilitate an interview.

 

Later, I instead recommended to him that with the evidence he emailled me, the best solution was to call up a general press conference, present the evidence and face media scrutiny. I repeated the same thoughts to media guru David Tam Baryoh. As soon as I arrived in UK, I sent in for publication, the same advise in a call for VP to meet the press whilst deriding SLPPs stunt.

 

Sorie Fofana recently wrote of me that I should go to hell. He is always making up the vilest and nastiest things possible about me in order to intimidate me away from exposing Bios vices.

 

One time, he wrote sexually demeaning manufactured up stuff about me. It took an appeal from former President Kabbah for me to drop a planned lawsuit against Sorie Fofana. That was with understanding he would remove the offensive material from Global Times website. He has not done so despite his assurance to Pa Kabbah. Sorie and many of his ilk are unable to understand why I continue to be so successful in this country and beyond despite all of what they throw at me. Their obsession with my honesty and forthrightness in exposing the vices of Bio is one of the reasons why they try to project me negatively in their diatribes.

 

In the name of defending a killer, a liar and a common thief like Maada Bio, this Sorie and his Global Times team alongside Sama Banya have stated unbelievable lies of me especially to foreigners but yet still, I RISE because I am honest and sincere in what I do for this country. I am just too blessed to be pulled down. I am like VP Sam-Sumana. He might or might not be chosen by Koroma to be the next APC Running-mate but he is clearly too blessed to be destroyed just like that. He proved that yesterday when he took my advise and successfully faced the media.
