ZAINAB BANGURA FACES POLITICAL SETBACK

  • ZAINAB BANGURA

The UN Special Representative of the Secretary General on Sexual Violence and Conflict, Haja Dr. Mrs. Zainab Bangura has faced a real political setback in his quest to lead the All People’s Congress come 2018.
The latter’s political aspiration was dented last week when the venue for her public lecture was surreptitiously changed to Family Kingdom instead of the Well of Parliament.
Officials of 50/50 present at Tower Hill were strenuously directing invitees that the venue for the public lecture was being changed to Family Kingdom.
The change of the venue according to our information has some political tone from the ruling All People’s Congress Party.
The main purpose of the symposium according to our information was a deliberate ploy to showcase Madam Zainab Bangura to the Sierra Leonean populace for presidency in the 2018 polls.
Reacting questions posed to her during a press briefing organized by the 50/50 Group of Sierra Leone past Friday, Madam Bangura noted her priority is to see President Koroma succeed in his development strides.
Her statement over the local radios and newspapers has spark series of debates across the All People’s Congress Party for her ambition to succeed President Koroma.
However, the 50/50 Group has said the change of venue was necessitated on the capacity of Parliament to hold the large audience for the ceremony.
