Foreign Affairs Minister, Zainab Hawa Bangura yesterday dodged the weekly government press briefing at the Information Ministry, 8th Floor Youyi Building. She was one of the government ministers invited to as usual give highlights of recent developments in their ministries. She was called upon to explain about the Italian investors currently with her in the country and the general running of her ministry.

 

However, the deputy minister of Information and Communications, Haja Saidatu Sesay apologized to the press for the absence of the minister. She said Zainab had earlier informed them that she was to take her investors to the Vice President’s office at Tower Hill.  “But she did not tell us what they have gone to do and we are waiting to hear from her,” she said, promising that the minister would honour the invitation next Thursday.
