KKY Movement Press Release

The Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella Movement (KKYM) received the unfortunate news of the interception and arrest of a close team of security personnel detailed to guard Dr. Kandeh Yumkella, one of the SLPP Flagbearer aspirants while he is on a three weeks visit of the country.

 

The private security team was intercepted at the Lungi International Airport while entering the airport to wait for the arrival of Dr. Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella who was coming into the country from the United States of America. The KKYM wishes to assure the general public that contrary to social media reports, the security team are all Sierra Leoneans with the exception of one white retired British security officer and Dr. Yumkellas brother who is also a British citizen and an ex military officer in Britain. No Nigerians or other African mercenary were among them as reported in the social media.


The security team whose main duty was to ensure the safety and security of Dr. Kandeh Yumkella during this visit had no other motive.

 

It is unfortunate that one of the security personnel wore an outfit which is similar to military combat uniform and the others wore black jackets which resemble some other state security outfit. Besides this, only a pepper spray and their belts were said to be of security concern. The KKYM is aware that the Sierra Leone Police is carrying out its  investigations and that at end of the day nothing extraodinary will be found.

 

Against this background therefore, the KKYM wants the public to know that Dr. Kandeh Yumkella is a law abiding Sierra Leonean who will NOT encourage or engage in anything subversive. This unfortunate incident is nothing but a slight misunderstanding of the security details in the country and nothing else. The KKYM wants all its supporters and well wishers to stay calm, remain law abiding and to come out in their number to welcome Dr. Yumkella at SLPP headquarters at Wallace Johnson Street on Monday 24th August at 10:00am. Long Live Sierra Leone. Long Live the SLPP. Victory to Kandeh Yumkella
