We Will Hold The SLPP Responsible for
Instability in Sierra Leone.
Sierra Leone’s opposition party appears to be
engaged in more activities than contrasting their political views with
the ruling APC. According to recent reports from the nation, the Sierra
Leone’s People Party (SLPP) is involved in stealthy operations to
subvert the rule of law in the nation. From the DREAM TEAM letter, to
Convention fever, disturbances in Kenema, Pujehun and Freetown, the SLPP
gives the impression that they are bent on destabilizing Sierra Leone.
They are doing so while canvassing to make the ruling APC look
intolerant and oppressive. Stones, bottles, etc found on their rooftop
does not present the image of an opposition that is intentional on being
peaceful. It shows a violent and aggressive SLPP acting like wolves in
If the report of the attempt by SLPP officials
to transport 70 ex-combatants (Kamajors) to Freetown is correct, it must
be time for the world to be blunt with SLPP leaders. The act itself is
more than suspicious. It points to the covert actions of the opposition
to reverse all progress in a nation now rebuilding from 10 years of war.
How unpatriotic are the members of the SLPP?
Falsely accusing prominent ruling APC party
officials of rape that never happened should not be treated frivolously
by President Koroma’s Government and Sierra Leone’s Judicial system.
More than being irresponsible and careless, it indicates precarious
maneuvers by the SLPP opposition to create fear, generate chaos,
sabotage peace, and establish the false premise for reverting to gorilla
Often than not, the international community is
more reactive than proactive dealing with internal issues of
self-governing nations. As long as boundaries are not crossed and the
sovereign rights of another nation is not infringed upon, reactive
measures are most likely what nations heading for or already in a crisis
get from the international community. In most cases, diplomacy is the
first and probably only option available and advocated to resolve
conflicts in volatile nations and regions of the world.
Taken proactive measures can be compared to the
“ounce of prevention” that is said to worth “a pound of cure.” However,
this is seldom the case. Based on the fact that developing trends in
Sierra Leone have been seen by the world before, there is no need to
wait only lives are lost and there is a full blown conflict before
reacting. Practical actions can be taken now to avoid Sierra Leone’s
‘slippery slop’ trend.
Sierra Leone has seen too much bloodshed and
senseless brutality in the past to lose balance and slowly slide into
another conflict. The mothers, women, and children of Sierra Leone have
experienced inconceivable atrocities and sexual abuse for SLPP to
deceptively use the issue today for political gains. Sierra Leone has
seen absurd amputations, alleged cannibalism and indescribable
lawlessness in the past, for SLPP to engage in the recreation of such
The world should blame any instability in Sierra Leone on the current
John Benjamin led opposition SLPP. Peace loving Sierra Leoneans who
witnessed cruelties in the past should not keep quiet now. Let us call
on the insensitive SLPP leaders to think about what is at stake. The
Peace of Sierra Leone is off the table regardless of political
differences. The SLPP must change its current course; they are leading
the nation to an uncalled for conflict. Let us call on the sadistic SLPP
leaders to abandon their subversive and treasonable pursuit and embark
on nation building. For the APC, SLPP, others parties, Sierra Leoneans
inside and outside Sierra Leone, its nation first. Therefore, peace and
stability are the only options not gorilla warfare.
Fellow Sierra Leoneans and citizens of the world
let us make noise now or else we will shed bitter tears later. Let us
call on the international community to hold the John Benjamin led SLPP
opposition responsible and accountable in no uncertain terms for
instability in Sierra Leone. Unless the world name John Benjamin, and
the SLPP leadership as the liable bunch for volatilities in Sierra
Leone, they will continue to throw stones from their party’s rooftop,
and pretend they have done nothing. The world must make it known that it
is not olive branches that are seen in their hands, but sticks, clubs,
machetes, stones, and bottles. We will hold the SLPP responsible for
instability in Sierra Leone.
