Sierra Leone News: Pictures & Analysis of "$141,000" Chernoh Bah Container

DELMAS Shipping Agency has confirmed that attempts were made by government since August 2014 to collect 40ft container sent by Chernoh Bah for Health Ministry but DELMAS laments that though the container arrived in August, DELMAS could not release it to Government before October as it was only on Friday October 3rd 2014 that DELMAS received clearance from Chernoh Bah’s partners to hand over the container to Health Ministry.

Meanwhile, though since September 2014, sum of over 6,000 dollars was wired by Sierra Leone Government to Foreign Bank account given by Chernoh Bah, yet Bah got New York Times on October 6th 2014 to publish an article wherein Bah & Oswald Hanciles presented government as having not yet sent the cash.

Chernor Bah failed to tell the international media that the earliest by which DELMAS could legally process papers for Government to take ownership of the container was October 3rd 2014.

So why did Chernoh Bah wait until AFTER the cash was sent by Government before he went to the international media to make a furore?

Could it be because Chernoh Bah fully well knew that the contents of the container were mostly worthless junk? For two months, since the container arrived and he was blackmailing Government for $6,500 whilst refusing to hand over original Bill of Lading, Chernoh never said anything to local or foreign media.

As soon as the dollars landed in the foreign bank account, Chernoh started making noise in foreign media portraying his country as a toxic place. Shabby politicking!

Meanwhile, the other question many are now asking is just why Chernoh Bah refused to work with the very credible organisation of Sierra Leoneans in America (NOSLINA) to air freight ambulances he claims to have secured for Sierra Leoneans?

Eager to assist her fellow citizens, Dr. Sylvia Blyden said she put Chernoh Bah in touch with NOSLINA in United States whom had just air freighted tons of goods to fight Ebola in Sierra Leone.

Rather than work with NOSLINA to air freight the ambulances, Chernoh Bah outrightly wrote to tell Dr. Sylvia Blyden that if Government did not send $6,500 to the foreign bank account he gave them, he was not interested in discussing air freighting the ambulances he claimed to have gotten for us as a gift.

This is the man having the guts to say he is a patriot. Is that how a patriot behaves? No, that is how criminals behave!

Meanwhile, these are photos of scenes at the opening of his container. Look keenly and surely you will conclude Chernoh’s furore is all just a 419 scam with political overtones in the midst of our Ebola catastrophe!!
