Tejan Kabbah is Alive in a Hospital
By Culled from an Update posted by Dr. Sylvia Blyden on her popular Facebook Wall

There is a totally false report from Concord Times  Facebook wall asserting that Pa Kabbah has died. Please be informed that former President Kabbah is admitted at Choithrams Hospital but he is alive as I type. He has even just a short while ago, received visits from his two former Vice-Presidents, Dr. Joe Demby and Lawyer Solomon Berewa who visited him at the Intensive Care Unit.

 

NOW, TO MY UPDATE! I was recently forced to drag some persons to the Police CID as a means of acting as a wake-up call to them and others that things had gone awry. Yes, badly awry! 22 years ago, two Nigerian brothers of mine, escaped from the Liberian war and arrived in Freetown where they were to open a newspaper they called CONCORD TIMES. It was named after a Nigerian magazine they had corresponded for known as CONCORD owned by late Nigerian presidential candidate, Chief M. Abiola. After initial hiccups during which they allowed their friendship with late Hindolo Trye to overcome their better judgments (causing them to file pro-NPRC reports that were blatantly false), the two guys soon built the newspaper into a formidable power-house of credibility. In those days, if CONCORD TIMES said so, it was true. Sadly, this is no longer the case as evidenced by the insensitive, un-crosschecked report that Pa Kabbah has died. My people, SOME (not all!) of these people calling themselves JOURNALISTS in our land are little more than criminals. We have a big problem.

Meanwhile, I call on all well wishers to please keep our former president in your prayers. May God give him the strength to go through this latest bout of illness. Amen.
