The Honourable Vice President of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Chief Sahr Sam-Sumana was last night given a grand welcome to Bonthe District when his convoy triumphantly entered Imperri Chiefdom. Accompanied by the First Lady Sia Nyama Koroma, the Resident Minister Southern Province Hon. Moijue Kaikai, the Sierra Leone Ambassador to America Bockarie Kortu Stevens, Ambassador-at-large Dauda Tombo Bangura and others, the Vice-President drove in at a few minutes past 9pm to meet a large crowd of Bonthe residents singing and dancing songs of praises for the works of the ruling All Peoples Congress (APC).

 

Until 1am this morning, women were keeping a joyful vigil of singing and dancing at the residence where the First Lady lodged whilst the VP was holding in-house meetings with APC activists in the area.

 

However, although the Vice-President and APC entourage were welcomed by many of the traditional chiefs of that part of the country, no public meeting or message was delivered last night as it is today that is slated to APC to campaign in Bonthe and not yesterday.

 

Yesterday was assigned to the UDM and as a sign of respect for the rules, the VP did not do any form of open politics last night. It is however expected to be a different ball game this morning when the Minister of Internal Affairs and APC Presidential Campaign Chairman for South-East, Hon. Musa Tarawally, will arrive in Bonthe from Bo district to join the Vice-President.

 

Upon the arrival of Musa Tarawally slated to be at 8am in the morning, there will be a large meeting to kick off the APCs campaign in Bonthe. The two fine gentlemen, Sam-Sumana and Tarawally will first address the residents of Imperri Chiefdom at Mobimbi from where they will drive together to Yagoi to board a boat which will ferry them across the river to Bonthe Island.

 

Following the meeting at Mobimbi, the First Lady will not go to Bonthe Island but will be accompanied by Southern Province Minister Moijue Kaikai to Mattru Jong where she will launch the APC campaigns. The First Lady is very popular in Mattru Jong because of her efforts to see to the health care needs of that area especially with the upgrading of the local hospital.

 

From the warm welcome which was accorded to the Vice-President by traditional authorities and residents, it is expected that the APC will have a good day in Bonthe. The district is the home of Julius Bio, the main opposition SLPP presidential candidate who hails from a ruling chieftaincy house in the district. However, the APC is boasting of having support both inside the chiefdom of Mr. Bio and in other chiefdoms of Bonthe.

 

This newspaper is taking the visit of the APC to Bonthe with high importance and our team headed by Augustine Samba, will be monitoring the days events, live from the ground inside Bonthe.


Hon. Musa Tarawally, APC Master Strategist who knows how to dismantle the SLPP because he knows all their inner secrets, is in charge of ensuring the re-election of President Koroma and VP Sam-Sumana in the South-East He tells Awareness Times that he is fully up to the task of ensuring victory.
