His Excellency the President who is the ruling APC leader & John Oponjo Benjamin, main Opposition SLPP leader, roar with laughter at something funny being said by RUFP leader Eldred Collins during 52nd Independence Anniversary Celebrations at State House on April 27th 2013. Earlier, Benjamin  had been in a serious mood as he complained to President Koroma over slow pace of the requested pardons of SLPP members convicted or facing trials for elections related offences. Collins lightened the mood.

It was a Happy 52nd Anniversary!

April 27th 2013:
Happy Independence Anniversary to all my Facebook Friends. Today is a day for laughter, warmth and friendship as we celebrate NATIONHOOD.  The combined 'photos of the day' accompanying this post, shows John Benjamin in a solemn moment as he is first complaining to His Excellency the President, over delay in government's processing of SLPP's request for pardon of SLPP members convicted and/or facing trial for 2012 election offences (but how can we do that now they are acting like 'lawless aborbors' all over the place?) and next part of the montage shows RUFP Leader Eldred Collins butting in with what is said to have been an outrageously funny comment that got both President Koroma and John Benjamin to burst out laughing. I am still trying to get Collins to tell me what exactly he said to the two party leaders that made them burst into laughter like that.

 

On a different note, I will also post shortly a very beautiful photograph of His Excellency the President, his able Honourable Vice-President and his Special Executive Assistant which we three took at State House. Stay tuned for that one. (SMILE)   :-)
