Mr. Umaru Fofana, President of the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists and Mr. Ransford Wright, the Coordinator, Independent Radio Network have jointly signed a letter to President Koroma in which they craved his indulgence to protect the well-being of Mr. Melvin Rogers, one of the leading journalists in Sierra Leone but who is alleged to have been threatened with death by Mr. Moijue Kaikai, Deputy Minister of Labour. Kaikai is also reported to have caused psychological trauma to the mother of Melvin Rogers through telephone calls he puts to her.


SLAJ President Fofana

The journalists want the President to prove to Mr Kaikai that he is not above the law. A copy of the recording of the death threat, on Compact Disc, has been forwarded to the President for him to treat the issue “with the serious consideration it deserves”.
