The Chairman of the main opposition Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) yesterday stormed the heartlands of President Ernest Koroma’s home district of Bombali at the helm of a high powered SLPP delegation seeking to persuade the people of Constituency 33 to elect a green SLPP member to replace the red APC Eddie Turay who resigned his Parliamentary seat to take up the relaxed job of a Diplomat in London.

John Benjamin, Kadi Sesay, J.J. Saffa, Alpha Timbo, I.J. Kabbah, Bobson Sesay, Joe Blell, Alie Bangura and numerous others are all right now in Bombali district where they have been warmly received by throngs of people.

However, it is only the results of this Saturday poll that will reveal if the huge crowds that have been turning up for the SLPP in Bombali have really translated into a viable voting support in the red, red APC district.

“Come Saturday we will know if it’s Watermelon Crowd, a Cormuel Crowd or a Reality Show,” our correspondent reported.
