Kenema Mayor

~~Mayor Joseph Samba Kelfala of the Kenema City Council is expected to appear before the honourable House of Parliament today to substantiate his reported accusation of the members of the Parliamentary Finance Committee demanding Le20 million from his council following the lawmakers refusal to approve the council’s 2015 budget. But the Chairman of the Finance Committee, Hon. Hassan Sheriff, is reported to have dismissed the Mayor’s claim and described his action as an attempt to smear the hard won image of members of the Finance Committee.

The Member of Parliament for Constituency 059 in the Tonkolili District, Hon. Hassan Abdul Sesay, has expressed disappointment with Canada and Austria for closing their borders on Sierra Leone at a time they needed them most.

The MP said the two countries are members of the Commonwealth and that Sierra Leone has honoured all its obligation, duties and responsibilities, adding that the two countries are supposed to be with Sierra Leone at a time like this, when it is fighting against a deadly epidemic.

Thankful to parliament for summoning the minister of works to make him explain reasons surrounding roads and potholes in the city.
My expectation, however, is that parliament will not limit the minister’s appearance to just the delay in the construction of roads, witless overlooking of potholes, but ask him say something on a ‘death trap’ bridge such as Pike Street, which if not repaired, is likely to wreak another havoc just as the collapsed King Jimmy Bridge.
