Krio Culture Frowns Upon Jubilation when Family or Comrade meets Misfortune

It appears desperation of Jonathan Leigh and SLPP clique to find fault where there is no fault, knows no bounds. Latest, they are peddling interpretation of an email which was NOT leaked but sent by me directly to a public forum. It was SLPPs P.K. Muana who mischievously used it to draw attention away from his university sacking woes. I immediately pointed out that if I was a member of APC media, I would not ask if APC has a central media command. Would I? I would know and be thick inside it.

 

If I was APC, I would not ask for Kabbs Kanu and Oswald not to mention my name within APC media circles. I will be proud to be mentioned as an adviser within APC media circles but Im not.

 

If anything, that email should not even be used as a measure against my integrity but as a sign of my oft-spoken independence. If there is any dividend gained out of my sending that email, it belongs to APC and not SLPP because it shows APC allowed ACC to indict one of their topmost figures whom an independent observer like myself has noted, possesses tremendous support in Freetown. I think Jonathan Leigh & the SLPP Gang should look elsewhere for more ammunition. This one has boomeranged AGAIN!

 

Finally, let it also be noted that the convicted Mayor of Freetown is a distant cousin. In Freetown, we do not openly rejoice when family  or [party] comrades meet with misfortune. It is totally frowned upon no matter the circumstances. Krio man say Lonta!
