Alhaji U.N.S. Jah, one of the most respected Elder Statesmen in Sierra Leone passed away on Monday 4th May 2015. He was the opposition SLPP Chairman who took over SLPP from Sama Banya in 2005 and handed over to John Benjamin in 2009. It was under his chairmanship in 2007 that SLPP lost the reigns of governance to the current ruling APC. Noted for his ability to get along with all manner of men, the late man, until his death, had been on good terms with all belligerent factions in his party and had been trying to broker peace. However, he passed away leaving SLPP in throes of yet another bitter internecine battle.
More details on his funeral arrangements subsequently.
