SLAJ is Fighting Everybody..!

This is getting very entertaining. The president of Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ) Kelvin Lewis has told the Nation, in his words that “the battle line has been drawn” between them (reckless, criminal journalists) and the country’s lawyers. It can be recalled that before they drew battle lines with the Bar Association, SLAJ had earlier drawn battle lines with the Judiciary! Ha ha ha. Funny eh? Wait a bit. It gets even merrier... At the same time they are drawing battle lines with the legal minds both on the Bar and the Bench, SLAJ is not only fighting the President and the Executive arm of Government in the matter of Seditious Libel trial of Jonathan Leigh & Baibai Sesay but SLAJ is simultaneously fighting with all the elected parliamentarians (i.e: entire Legislature) who recently unanimously voted to amend the criteria for who should speak on Parliament’s behalf. Wow! So SLAJ is now fighting everybody! Fighting the President, the Executive arm including the Police, the Chief Justice, the Judiciary, the Lawyers, Bar Association, the Parliamentarians, us the citizens, etc. etc. They are fighting because they want to be criminally reckless in journalism. But it has long been recognised that SLAJ’s Kelvin Lewis is not amongst the brightest of human creations. Contents within his cranium might have disproportionate gray and white matter within.


Meanwhile, we await who next will SLAJ’s Kelvin Lewis fight or draw daggers with? Who’s next? Ha ha ha! Let the show go on!
