APC Shamed as Fish Mafia turns Computer Engineer!!!
Jun 29, 2010, 17:08

Senior stalwarts of the ruling All People’s Congress (APC) party have confessed to this newspaper that the party hierarchy was "in a state of shame" as to how they had abandoned former Fisheries Minister Haja Afsatu Kabba during her ongoing bout with the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) in court leaving only grassroots supporters behind her in her ongoing ordeal.

This follows yesterday’s session in court where a witness who had confidently described himself to the Courts past Friday June 25th 2010 as a Computer Engineer whose only links to the Ministry of Fisheries was to repair their computers and supply them with stationary and sundries was exposed during powerful cross-examination yesterday June 28th 2010 by ace Defense Lawyer Yada Hashim Williams Esq.

Yada Williams carefully unveiled to the Court the position of the Defense that, not only was the ACC’s witness a fake Computer Engineer but he was actually a "fix-it" man for a shady Fishing Company known as Korea Fishing with his complimentary business card [that Yada Williams had somehow secured], showing the witness to be the "Contact Manager" for this Fishing company.

It was clearly revealed that during the tenure of the dynamic female politician Haja Afsatu Kabba, the so-called Computer man was unable to have his way and "fix things" for his Korea Fishing company because of the tough stance taken by the former APC Minister to implement good policies that sealed off all former leakages of revenue.

APC Strongwoman Haja Afsatu Kabba:
Defence Lawyers say she is not a corrupt villain but a True Patriot who is Victim of a Conspiracy by ‘FISH MAFIA’

Additionally, the Defense insisted that the fake computer engineer had misused the name of AITH, one of the country’s well-respected computer companies in his bid to pass upon the court a fraudulent & perjurious attempt to portray himself as a certified Computer Engineer when the Defence insists that in reality he was really a member of a group now loosely termed as the country’s powerful but shady FISH MAFIA.

The Defence is alleging that Haja Afsatu Kabba, facing multiple charges of corruption, is actually not a villain but is a victim of a massive conspiracy to remove her from the Fisheries Ministry because of her uncompromising stance to implement policies in the fishing sector that have resulted in feathers added to cap of APC’s President Koroma.

"We have betrayed Haja Afsatu Kabba. This is not the APC way to abandon our own like this but we have really let Haja down and this is going to affect us badly in Freetown. There is no instrument more potent for losing elections than to show the public we are an ungrateful party that sells out our patriots. This is how SLPP lost because of Chief Hinga Norman," an APC Executive member lamented last evening to this writer over the party hierarchy’s decision to abandon Haja Afsatu Kabba in court in light of what was now tumbling out of the courtroom.
