So Kadi Sesay is Upset with Cuss? Hmmm!

The popular Good Governance programme called MONOLOGUE had for the past few months been warning the main opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) to refrain from their acts of media terrorism but to no avail. MONOLOGUE host, popular journalist David Tam Baryoh had been particularly upset over the sexually explicit and gender based insults which the SLPPs Unity newspaper is now known for. Disgusting terms were generously applied to decent women in the media in a bid to intimidate them away from pointing out the flaws of the SLPP and its presidential candidate. For my forthrightness in informing the world, I was particularly targeted in very ile manners.

 

I remember one night over MONOLOGUE when David Tam Baryoh had warned the SLPP that if they allowed their media & propaganda team to continue to rain down such insults on innocent women like Sylvia Blyden, they will not like the results when the ordinary folks might decide to follow suit thinking SLPPs disgusting and nauseous style is acceptable in civilised societies.

 

All Tam Baryohs advise fell on deaf ears because people like SLPP Womens Leader Isatu Jabbie Kabbah and SLPP Running-mate Dr. Kadi Sesay were by then enjoying the sexually explicit and gender based insults thrown at innocent women on behalf of the cause of the SLPP.

 

Today, they are reaping the fruits as the tables have turned around. Oh those wonderful street dancing ladies are very witty and imaginative. What songs they sang this week about Dr. Kadi Sesay! Wow wow wow! No wonder I.J. and Kadi Sesay called up a press conference to protest! So, ee hart eh?

 

I wonder if the SLPP newspapers have any more highly provocative, sexually offensive words to write about female journalists? Hmmm! We shall see. As long as our witty and imaginative female admirers are out on the streets, we shall hear songs and ballads; no matter the latter day late response of the Human Rights Commission about the rights of women to be protected from demeaning sexually offensive insults.

 

This, too, is our country. Lonta.
