THE HIDDEN STORIES: WHY “CHIEF OF TIMBER” WAS FIRED

Dr. Richard Konteh’s appointment to serve in the Government of President Koroma was an embarrassment. But if the President has now come to realize it, by relieving him of his duty he may have incurred a lot of embarrassments, but kept quiet as an administrator who wanted to protect his staff. It is now evident that his endurance has reached a point of no return. Prior to Dr. Konteh’s return to Sierra Leone, he was head of a very credible media organization in Nigeria.

The handling of the organization’s finances to which he was the head left him with no job in Nigeria and had to rush to his country of birth when he got wind that the 2007 election was in favour of Ernest Bai Koroma, his relative, whom he maintained close proximity with for the purpose of appointing him as a minister. Unfortunately, he was appointed Deputy Minister of Finance and Economic Development.

As Deputy Minister he was in charge of revenues and other state assigned functions. As the adage goes that a Leopard hardly departs with its spots so with Dr. Richard Konteh. He was allegedly involved in a US$11 Million receipt deal at the Ministry of Finance that backfired, after he may have realized some benefits. The National Public Procurement Authority (NPPA) was dragged into the deal, but Dr. Richard Konteh was too smart to be caught. Others were involved, but the former Anti Corruption Commissioner; Mr. Abdul Tejan Cole used his “discretion” to let most of those that were involved that should have been charged to court off the hook. Dr. Konteh in a Cabinet Reshuffle was transferred to the Ministry of Trade. At the Ministry of trade, there were reports that he received bribes from Companies that submitted tenders for the Pre-destination Inspection. He maneuvered the process and today a Ghanaian Company, known as African Link, which never took part in the bid process is heavily taxing Sierra Leoneans and collecting monies from them for goods coming and going out of the country and the monies are shipped to Ghana and used to upgrade the owner of the Company.

Being a lucky Sierra Leonean and a relative of President Koroma, he was transferred to State House, where he replaced Dr. Marrah. It was the expectation of the public that being closed to the seat of power and has maintained an office at State House, he would have upheld the credibility of the office and project it very favourably to Sierra Leoneans and the World at large.

At State House, he deliberately embarrassed President Koroma when he invited the Opposition Leader in Nigeria, pretending that it was President Koroma who instructed him to invite the Opposition Leader to Sierra Leone and presented him with an award. When Bola Tinudu returned to Nigeria he presented a picture to the ruling Government, giving the impression that the President, Government and people of Sierra Leone had invited him and subsequently presented him with an award which was a recognition of the political role he is playing in Nigeria. This angered President Jonathan Goodluck who saw the entire affair as a slap on his face by the Sierra Leone leader whom he had considered his brother and friend. President Koroma had to fly immediately to Nigeria to not only declare his innocence but to appeal to his brother and friend. At the time Dr. Richard Konteh manipulated the diplomatic arrangement, President Koroma was out of the country on a visit to Congo.

Sources say when Dr. Richard Konteh was questioned behind closed doors as to why he had embarrassed his boss, he asked for forgiveness and said Chief Bola Tinudu is his personal friend since he was in Nigeria.

The recently uncovered manipulation of Dr. Richard Konteh is no surprise to many who knows that he possesses such qualities and those qualities he can use to deceive his superiors.

Correspondences dated 11th February, 2014, 26th February, 2014, 25th April, 2014 and 14th March, 2014 showed that communications between Dr. Konteh and Alie Sumah had been in progress for some time prior to the application for permission to be granted for the export of timber woods and wood products.

What police and the Anti Corruption Commission must embark on firstly, is to establish whether Dr. Konteh used his office to defraud the State of Sierra Leone and next, how he conspired with a local timber exporter in the person of Alie Sumah to tanish the name and office of the President of Sierra Leone.

It would be recalled that the brother of Dr. Konteh similarly used their qualities to defraud the State during the 50th Anniversary Celebration of Sierra Leone. The matter is still crawling in the court with no end in sight. It is strongly believed that if Dr. Richard Konteh is charge to court the matter will take similar posture to that of his brother.

The press release from State House has revealed that President Koroma authorized the importation of 30 containers of processed timber; Dr. Konteh should be able to explain how and why the figure increased from what President Koroma authorized to over 700 containers.
