Parliament versus Free Speech

Yesterday Parliament summoned key ministries, departments, and agencies, in relation to their role ina state of emergency, following unhealthy reporting in the media about certain individuals and institutions in the fight against Ebola.

Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Hon Chernor Bah, saidit is difficult to manage issues of human rights, which includes free speech, in a state of emergency, where these rights have been suspended.

  He reaffirmed Parliament’s position that after the Ebola war is over, everyone including MPs is going to give a full account about how each cent was spent – as this happens to be the thorny issue presently across the country.

Commentary

Leave our Paramount Chiefs Alone

President Koroma last week was in the provinces, where he told some paramount chiefs that they would lose their staffs if Ebola isn’t contained in their chiefdoms by the next 21 days.

  Others think this is a hard assignment, unfair even, and that the paramount chiefs should be left alone because a whole lot more have bungled without being given such ultimatum.

  The Paramount Chiefs won’t be left alone, including the government, for the wreck we are in today since Ebola entered Sierra Leone.

  The rude and scary awakening we are daily having as the Ebola deaths keep rising, plus its opening new frontiers, is enough food for thought that all of us have bungled, and should be rightly queried.

View Point

Government Neglect Salpost

Generations ago, the Sierra Leone Postal Service was of relevance, an integral part of our lives, and all of us still remembers ‘the quickening of the heart’ when the mail man comes to our door with a letter. Today, however, Salpost is a neglected entity – all its offices across the country are safe havens for goats and sheep and the like.

   Worse, the National Commission for Privatization has recommended for Salpost to be privatized, discounting the pivotal role the post holds in any nation. NCP is of the view that Salpost is a liability on the neck of the government – as it stands, it can only get worse because no one has come forward with initiatives to keep it relevant, not even the Ministry of Information and Communication that oversees it.

ENCISS Extension to Focus on Ebola Relief

In recognition of the challenge faced by Sierra Leone in battling the outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease, ENCISS will focus primarily on Ebola relief work during a four-month extension granted by UK Aid from the UK Government.

Since the programme’s third phase began in October 2010 ENCISS has worked with civil society groups and local councils to enhance interaction between society and the state. During the four-month extension period the three ENCISS offices - in Bo, Makeni and Freetown - will remain open. ENCISS will continue supporting its civil society partners nationwide, in a variety of ways, to help them keep up the momentum of their work. However, the nature, timing and scope of its extension-period activities will be determined by the situation with the Ebola outbreak.
