Four Years Later...: Where Has Ernest Koroma Gone To?

Four years ago, in answer to a request by Osman F. Yansaneh (former APC Secretary-General now High Commissioner to Ghana) and William J. Smith (former APC Newspaper Editor now Resident Minister, Eastern Province), this press had cause in February 2006 to compile information from these two gentlemen which we were to publish worldwide as a Profile of Sierra Leone’s then Opposition leader, Hon. Ernest Bai Koroma. That February 2006 piece I penned down became the worldwide de-facto Biography of our current dear President and aside a few changes here and there, it is still the official Biography he uses.


That 17th February 2006 publication of Awareness Times is still on our Internet Website under our Profile Columns. It is being reproduced once again today (on Page 2), four years later, with a question asking where has that Ernest Koroma whom we had been convinced to believe was an ardent believer in “the rule of law, human rights, good governance, probity, freedom of the press, transparency and accountability” disappeared to? Where is Ernest Koroma?


The current Ernest Koroma at State House and for whom Leather Boot and Co. are brutalising State employees of BKPS with gross impunity, cannot be the same Ernest Koroma described in that my February 2006 promotional biography we created & published for him. So, where has that other Ernest Koroma gone?


This is the question concerned persons are asking of each other.
