Photograph below  shows Me (Special Executive Assistant to President Koroma) and Hon. Patrick Tengbeh, the only APC parliamentarian in Kailahun for now. This photo was taken on Yenga soil on August 9th 2013. I spent Ramadan on assignment to the area by the President. I last visited this same spot in November 2011 as a journalist. Friends might recall that at the time of that my visit, it was fully occupied by armed Guinean soldiers with big guns and tankers. Today, because of the astute diplomacy of President Ernest Koroma, there are no more Guineans on Yenga soil. It is one of the reasons why the people voted so massively for President Koroma and the APC in this part of Kailahun.


All the four councillors in this constituency 03 are APC just like the MP, Hon. Tengbeh. There is one more APC councillor in neighbouring constituency 04 (Kissi Tongi).



There are numerous assignments I am undertaking on this trip but one of the main reasons for me being in faraway Koindu presently was not only to spend Ramadan with the Kissi people but to hand over brand new motorbikes to the five APC councillors in the SLPP dominated council.


The APC councillors had complained of being given too short notices to attend council meetings in distant areas like Jojoima thus hampering their representations of their people in the Kailahun council. To ensure they can attend all council meetings, no matter where or when they are called, and to ensure their movements are facilitated all over their wards to meet their people, the five brand new bikes were purchased by the APC Chairman & Leader himself from his personal funds.


State House SEA hugs oldest inhabitant of Yenga in Kailahun last weekend


Above is a photograph of a scene where I meet my old friend in Yenga. She was so thrilled to hear I was visiting the area and is all smiles. This photo was also taken on Yenga soil. I last visited this same spot on this verandah of this hut back in November 2011 as a journalist. Me and my journalists had taken photos with this lady whom we learnt was the oldest inhabitant on Yenga. She had stayed through thick and thin. I was so happy to see her again today inside a de-militarised and liberated Yenga. Also, I note there are so many new faces who have now returned to Yenga since the Guineans left.


And yes, that is my APC/Ernest Koroma t-shirt which I proudly sported in Yenga. God bless Sierra Leone!!
