Hi Friends & Followers. Since I arrived in America, I have been updating Whatsapp groups but was too tied up to come on Facebook. It appears my absence was noticed here. I promise you all that first thing tomorrow morning, I will start updating on President Koroma's superbly SUPERB trip to America which has now just ended. This trip was just fantastic and I feel so blessed to have been a part of it. It was a very hectic schedule but at the end, I am so proud and happy to be a Sierra Leonean today.


To those who have seen my videos as I danced to the taunting tunes from frustrated Sam-Sumana/SLPP tiny bunch outside World Bank, well una for know now say me na Salone politician per excellence. I know exactly what to do when political opponents sing the ‘FIBA BABOON’ song - whether inside Sierra Leone or outside...


Honestly though, can you imagine black Africans taunting fellow citizens as BABOONS in front of White folks in downtown Washington DC? If only they had seen the looks on the faces of the spectators as they sang out the BABOON song... Food for thought!


However, all their rudeness and rhetoric did not affect a single aspect of President Koroma’s trip. Not even a slight dent. This has been an amazing trip! And to those saying the President 'escaped' using a so-called back exit at World Bank, you are very wrong. All the VIPs exited through that same VIP Exit.  President Johnson Sirleaf and President Alpha Conde and UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and many other VIP dignitaries from around the world, all used the same VIP Exit that President Koroma used. So stop your LIES that he 'escaped' from the back.


President Koroma was hosted by the highest levels of power and authority in the United States and this continued into his Hotel Suites where top U.S. Government officials and Business executives all flowed in to pay courtesy calls on him. The international media also stormed his hotel suite.  If you want to know just how GREAT this trip has been, read the manner in which our beloved President has been portrayed in all his international interviews with BBC, VOA, REUTERS, WASHINGTON POST, CCTV, etc. etc. etc.


Throughout all of our President's myriad of media interviews, he was never asked a single question about the insignificant former Vice-President or the nonsense being churned out by the head-less and tail-less Opposition! The world media knows much better than what detractors are trying to feed out. Just read all the reports.

I am certainly not a bootlicker by any standards but if you see me rallying around this great President it is to ensure he keeps his positive vision up and run through his PROGRAMMES for us all. He has his human faults but he is easily one of the best leaders in Africa right now.

I wish you had been inside the event at the World Bank. It was streamed live and should be available online. Watch it. Take note of how many times leaders like CDC Dr. Tom Frieden and UN's Nabarro referenced and endorsed what President Koroma said and see if any other Leader enjoyed the same accolade and citations.


The only success Sam-Sumana’s relatives and their SLPP allies scored was ensuring observers could watch their selfishness and providing entertainment that made me dance at their silliness and selfishness. And boy, those Sam-Sumana people are SELFISH! Because Sam-Sumana lost his VP position, so everybody in the country should suffer and not enjoy assistance from the international community? What a selfish bunch.


They selfishly actually went to say assistance should be withheld from our country during this critical post-Ebola time! Na God go pay them for that evil wish. Anyway, it did not happen - The country under the advocacy of President Koroma has been blessed with more support whilst you Sam-Sumana folks just ridiculed yourselves in front of the White Man; especially with your ‘FIBA BABOON’ songs.


So to end, let me repeat that President Koroma's trip to U.S. was superbly superb! - That is what International Media evidence shows.
