NEWS : Politics  

John Benjamin is a Rotten Tooth to be rooted out of SLPP Ė Tamba Sam

The fellow, who last year infamously described Western Area politician Usman Boie-Kamara as akin to ďwaste productĒ which is to be passed out of body orifices, has released another anatomical description against another politician. This time, SLPP Spokesman Mr. Musa Tamba Sam, has described John Oponjo Benjamin, the SLPPís so-called Chairman/Leader as being akin to ďa rotten toothĒ which must be rooted from the mouth in order to enable chewing to be done without pain.

 

Musa Tamba Sam who was speaking to popular radio journalist Amadu Lamrana Bah of STAR RADIO, says John Oponjo Benjamin should be Ďimmediately rooted out of the SLPP like how one roots out a rotten toothí as his presence in SLPP was causing SLPP to not function as it should.

 

Tamba Sam was speaking to the young journalist immediately after he launched what he called Agenda 2017, ďa grassroots movementĒ aimed at ďmaking John Benjamin to be redundant in SLPPĒ and also stopping Trade Minister of brutal NPRC military junta, Kandeh Yumkella of the nineties period, from becoming the SLPP flagbearer for 2017 presidential elections.

 

Recent upheavals within SLPP have seen pro-Bio factions come up against pro-Yumkella NPRC-linked factions at the SLPP headquarters. Musa Tamba Sam belongs to the Bio faction. Benjamin is suspected by Bioís people of being a Kandeh Yumkella sympathiser so last month, Benjaminís security detail were physically assaulted and his vehicle immobilised by the Bio supporters.

 

In the process of molesting and humiliating their so-called Chairman/Leader, Benjaminís mother who is over 80 years of age, was described with unprintable and abusive insults by the baboon-cane wielding Bio NPRC faction. Some 22 years ago, this same mother of John Benjamin used to be the one to prepare food for Maada Bio and her late son Captain Prince Ben-Hirsch when they were at a military station near her Segbwema home.

 

Please see¬†on this website for our popular opinion piece on ongoing SLPP imbroglio in which John Benjamin is advised to find his self-respect with a reminder that no-one within any of SLPPís regional, district or constituency executives has publicly condemned the molestation him and his family members have faced within the SLPP at the hands of Maada Bioís supporters. Many of Benjaminís friends and family have contacted Awareness Times within last few days to endorse our opinion that it is good for Benjamin to hands off the SLPP.

 

ďEven if Benjamin does not want to leave abruptly, he should hurry up to call up a national convention and hand over the SLPP to Maada Bio to operate it,Ē said Lansana Brima Foday, one of Benjaminís nephews in Kenema who called this press last evening. Many others re-echo the same opinion.
