Whether the SLPP is not covering its campaign fund raising trails properly or some APC supporters and sympathizers are too smart for them has left many questions hanging and swinging like a pendulum. Few weeks back, Mr. Mohammed Hamid was accused by the Public Prosecution Office in Saudi Arabia of money laundering and allegedly using non-governmental organizations as front in his trade was arrested and detained.

Mr. Mohammed Hamid has been linked to the SLPP, though not as a financier of the SLPP but as the individual who allegedly paved the way for the visit of the party’s flag bearer retired Julius Maada Bio to that party of the world where it was alleged that he made lofty political promises to some businessmen if he wins the 2012 Presidential election. What should not be treated as a mere joke or with triviality is the recent report made to the Political Party’s Registration Commission (PPRC) by Mr. Karamoh Kabba, Director of Political and Public Affairs to the Chairman of the Commission.

The letter dated 10th August, 2012 highlighted a number of issues that the author is demanding the attention of the Chairman for the purpose of what he called a fair and level playing field. In the letter, which is published in this edition, Mr. Kabbah referred the Chairman of PPRC to an outside organization that he accused of raising campaign funds in America for the Sierra Leone People’s Party. The organization, Mr. Karamoh Kabba claimed is aided by a Foreign Information Communication Technologies(ICTs), and was designed by a Texas based A&M University(TAMU), and Communication for the purpose of soliciting funds and lashing out the government of Sierra Leone, using the LISTSERVE.TAMU.EDU.

Mr. Kabba explained that the email address that is used by most of its members is SLPPNA@LISTSERVE.TAMU.EDU, and is different from LEONENET@LISTSERVE.TAMU.EDU another forum used by Dr. PK Muana, an Associate Professor of TAMU. The original initiative and objective for the formation of the site was to promote educational programmes, which Dr. PK. Muana and his SLPP members have been transformed to a political forum meant only for SLPP supporters to present both President Ernest Bai Koroma and his Vice President Alhaji Sam Sumana negatively to the outside world.

Mr. Kabba also cited the unprofessional and unethical behaviors of these people and how they are entertaining non registered voters of Sierra Leone to make contributions to the site, a situation he described as un-developmental not only to the country but also to democracy, which has been the focus of well meaning Sierra Leoneans. It is not known how the new Chairman will respond to the allegations contained in Mr. Kabba’s letter, which are serious and have the potential of exploding any moment from now.
