Airtel Bribes Parliament?

No, Airtel wouldn’t dare to bribe Parliament, but that is what many people are thinking because since allegations of the company’s overbilling arrived in Parliament, the issue is yet to be addressed.

  A subscriber, Abdul Rahim Kamara, had submitted a letter to the National Telecommunications Commission (NATCOM), about overbilling, with documentary evidence.

  Natcom, instead of addressing the issue on time, dallied and preferred other matters – a situation that worried Parliament and made them request to be arbiters on the matter.

JOINT PRESS RELEASE BY THE SIERRA LEONE ASSOCIATION OF JOURNALISTS (SLAJ) AND THE VETERANS JOURNALISTS UNION (VeJU) ON THE TERRORIST ATTACK ON THE FRENCH NEWS MAGAZINE

The armed attack on colleague Journalists of the satirical news magazine, Charlie Hebdo in France has been received with shock and dismay by freedom lovers the world over. The brazen and dastardly terrorist attack resulted in the cold-blooded murder of twelve people, including ten staff members and many more injured.

The nature and form of the terrorist operation, under the guise of religious extremism, indicates that the objective is to deal a fatal blow to the fundamental human right, of the free expression of views and ideas, which are essential components of democratic governance.

Army Promotions – Rubbish or What!

Last week the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces issued a press release on its 2015 promotions – a promotion that raised a lot of eyebrows across town, especially in the army itself.

View Point

ATTITUDINAL AND BEHAVIOURAL CHANGE PROGRAMME IN THE SCHOOL CURRICULUM!!

The launching of the Attitudinal and Behavioural Change (ABC) programme in the country was really in place and timely, especially the role it played during the 2012 general elections fever. Despite some Sierra Leoneans may see it as a political programme. However, whether it is or not, I think any honest patriotic and true nationalist Sierra Leonean will testify that President Ernest Bai Koroma’s initiative brainchild, ABC programme in the country was very useful and powerful, particularly in terms of bringing Sierra Leoneans more closer to each other because of their change of negative perception against one another and the country as a whole.
