Sierra Leone: When a Media Regulator goes Manic

In the last seven days, as publisher of Awareness Times, I have described the countrys Independent Media Commission (IMC) as "not working with sincere intention to serve this country" but as "acting out of malice, spite, pettiness, childish vindictiveness and a too hasty kneejerk reaction".

Furthermore, I described the IMC as undertaking "persistent and unfortunate kindergarten tactics" whenever it handles issues pertaining to Awareness Times.

I also said "the Independent Media Commission (IMC) has been run like a megalomaniac entity for many years but it is only now that many are waking up to this fact".

Well, some might have thought the descriptions were harsh but I published them knowing the same to be true.

As if by Divine intervention to ensure the truth comes out, the IMC went into action to justify all my apt descriptions of them. They could not touch the truths in my well-publicised letter but resorted to petty revenge by attacking perceived weaker targets (AWOL & our papers brilliant lawyer).

See below as the IMC engages on the height of pettiness; making a total fool of itself and denigrating what Parliament had meant to be a worthy institution.

This letter is a shoddy display of ill-concealed kindergarten tantrum

The 2012 AWOL award to our lawyer was given some one month ago last year December. Why is it only now IMC remembers to express "consternation" over the award? The simple answer is that they cannot handle my letter and are looking to strike back - in their usual petty manner I must point out.

For me, best part of IMCs foolishness are the three exclamation marks (!!!) at the end of their release.

Those exclamation marks are literary displays that IMC Commissioners were probably banging on their office tables at Kissy House as they threw kindergarten tantrums. Funny clowns!

Just a pity the country has to suffer this ongoing manic display of foolishness of IMC.
