Independent Journalism... Again!

I have never sat down in Frank Timis' private jet plane. However, according to SLPP hogwash regurgitated in 'Africa Confidential' magazine, I traveled on Frank Timis' private jet. It is sheer nonsense like many of the other nonsense being published by Africa Confidential including labelling Sylvia Blyden to be an APC propagandaist.

 

I do know that an APC propagandaist wouldnt have come out with scathing articles lambasting President Koroma & APC Government including critisising his abysmal treatment of relatives of NPRC victims, condemning the molly-coddling of lawless okada riders and questioning poor police/justice sector. I remain the only news commentator who has come out strongly to lambast APC Governments current hapless communications sector that has seen communicating by GSM phones or Internet to be a mess

 

What I will not do is to join those peddling half truths and sheer lies against APC in order to market a Killer, Liar and a Common Thief like Julius Maada Bio as President of Sierra Leone. Meanwhile, I trust former President Kabbah is informed of the contents of last Friday's edition of Sorie Fofana's newspaper? I will not say a single word on that.

 

I have advised President Koroma in my newspaper many, many times that his local APC propaganda measures are not up to par on the ground where it matters. I have stated that his personal handling of SLPP Propagandaists is height of political naivety on his part!!


Obviously President does not agree with me hence he continues with his unique style of inadequate propaganda. It is this inadequacy on APCs part that causes SLPP to willfully try to label a critical independent thinker like me to be an APC propagandaist.


It is APC inadequacy that is causing SLPP to be so vexed with my singular independence as APC is not up to par and too inadequate to effectively take on SLPPs propaganda.
