    According to Transparency International, “Poorly equipped schools, counterfeit medicine and elections decided by one single group of incompetent crooks & money are just some of the consequences of public and private sector grossly incompetent corruption. Bribes and backroom deals don’t just steal resources from the most vulnerable – they undermine justice and economic development, and destroy public trust in our government and our incompetent and dotard APE-MAN leaders… as ASSRNEST KAMARA/KOROMA. Most Sierra Leoneans struggles to make ends meet, with average personal income of slightly more than $1 a day.”

    “Corruption is responsible for the abject poverty and poor health that are killing the vast majority of children and adults in Sierra Leone. And it seems from the latest Transparency International report; there is no hope of an improvement.”
    The corrupt acts of people in power have over the years led to the deaths of thousands of people needlessly of preventable diseases and poverty. Corruption makes it difficult to maintain the rule of law.

    In the days of Late President Siaka Stevens, in his one party dictatorship, many people thought Salone’s governance problems could only be solved when our academics become ministers of Government. The ageing president succumbed to pressure and started placing Doctors and Professors as ministers. That was when our corruption was upgraded! This reminds me of a policeman at a workshop some years back who said that if the police were said to be corrupt, at least theirs is transparent. When queried, the police explained that the policeman openly takes bribe in the full view of people and the money is small, like Le5,000 or Le10,000. But for other walks of life, a little funny signature will fetch millions of Leones. I hope you get the point. The only snag here is that for the Anti-Corruption Commission, whether the money involved is big or small, corruption is corruption.

    Salone’s pre anti-corruption man turns attorney general and disgustingly hilariously wannabe president of sierra leone (LOL) can’t even brings disciplined control order into his hilariously disgusting little ape personality. Corrupted little ape souls, left with the capacity to decide the life of others in sierra leone with derision and disbelief.

    But that’s the faith, ”the will of god for our sierra leone”. Left in the hand of tenminee,loko,limba, kuranko and Yoruba’s by providence. The most primitively backward of axis of APES in that CURSED LAND. #SAD.

    These apes leadership in ernest kamara/sisey/koroma have all the corrupt, brutal, dirty, unintelligent (except with their foolishly out of date cruel jokes telling) and incompetent INGREDIENTS CHARACTERISTICS of SIAKA THEIVENS, SORIE SORRY KOROMA AND BAIMBA KAMARA.

    Did you take note of their NAMES–stevens/Theivens, kamaras and koroma. Names of uncultured, unwashed, backward brainless and thoughtless oldest primitive vertebrates apes.

    The same, Truth goes ”grossly sadly” for the so called intelligential elites with their completely blindly weird and timid half baked foolishly narrow mind set in their starved quest for a basic survivals. The likes of cad kanu, tony bee, timus olu ojuju free man-son or mad-son, Oswald olajuye hanciles. #SadCursedSalone.
