Ex-service Men beg for Agricultural Support

By Alhaji Koroma

The Sierra Leone Ex-service Men Association, a conglomeration of ex-military men who had served the Sierra Leone Army have called on the Government of Sierra Leone to help support their agricultural strides in the Western Area Rural District.

They said they have the man power and that they are ready to do the work but need the land, equipment and support to do so.

According to their Western Area Rural regional chairman, Moses Y. Jalloh alias Kabila, his men have been tagged with violence on very many different occasions, and they think their engagement in agricultural activities will fade that impression away.

“It would not only provide them with enough food, money but will also protect them from being used foolishly by politicians,” he said.

“Politicians always get easier access to my men because they don’t have any works to do. You know most of them were forcefully retired from the military, and as a result they think they have been treated unfairly by the government.

And because of that most of them are angry and can do anything for pittance if they are not kept busy in doing resourceful things,” he stated, disclosing that his Association has been able to bring them together and talked to them about the need to be peaceful and resourceful in the country.”

Moses Y. Jalloh revealed that they have decided to work on agriculture because they think it is a better engagement for his boys.

He added that such engagement will not only be productive to them but it will also boost the economy of the country.

Therefore, he implored the government through the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security consider themselves in whatever agricultural help they are given out.

He assured that his men will be used by politicians this time around for whatever violent tricks they might want to employ.

It is evident that the services of ex-service men are always employed by politicians during elections period to intimidate their political opponents, but as we approach elections 2018, Moses Y. Jalloh pointed out it will be different turn on their part.

Relative to their agriculture pursuit, this is not the first time they have had engagement it.
Sometimes in 2016, the ex-service men cultivated with mix-cropping over 50 acres of land at Madonke Community in the Western Area Rural District.
