Donít Beg for Me; Beg for Sierra Leone

This short piece is for that APC praise-singer, Reverend Kemoh Sulimani who was recently charged in America with criminal larceny of $150,000 American Government Tennessee State funds. This is the APC character who has made what he calls an X-mas appeal for me to be granted "mercy" by President Koroma and/or Koromaís surrogate. Who asked you???

Now, I wonder if Sulimani got taken to Court for his alleged larceny of $150,000 only for the matter to be adjourned twelve times with only one non-credible police witness being cross-examined and the matter being repeatedly denied due discharge, if he would appreciate anyone appealing for him to be granted mercy in such a situation of gross abuse of power. Please, Reverend, do not beg for me. Beg for this country!

Frankly, despite the inconveniences, I really do not mind the unfolding saga which is exposing the true nature of the countryís leadership. Reverend, if you really have to beg, please beg our leaders to stop abusing this countryís laws and to stop raping our democratic freedoms. Do not beg for me. I donít need it. Thank you and please accept Seasonsí Greetings to you also.
