CENSUS RESULTS AE OUT WITH MIXED REACTIONS
ILLEGAL BIKE RIDERS POLICE GANGS CAUSING TROUBLE BUT WHO CARES?
Sometime ago we warned against this tendency for Trade Union groups to form what amounts to their own police forces to enforce their own bye-laws. Traders, Motor Drivers, Okada Riders all have their own police officers operating freely alongside the national and municipal police throughout the country. When news came through on social media in the last 48 hours that a Bike rider Police had chased an Okada Man to his death in Bo in the process of enforcing a bye-law, it came as no surprise.
THE NINE-DAY WONDER CALLED “FLY SALONE”
So what was celebrated as a masterstroke in attracting foreign direct investment to the world's "fastest growing economy" otherwise called Sierra Leone has ended in an obvious business and PR disgrace. FlySalone can no longer Fly. This is not because nobody saw this coming, at least we at Politico simply looked at the TRACK RECORD of those behind the venture and concluded that the whole project was taking off on financial MOSQUITO LEGS.
AND IT CAME TO PASS THAT DE PA FINALLY RESHUFFLED HIS CABINET

Suddenly they will make themselves available to us again - no more secretaries telling us about their bosses were having endless meetings.
ATILLA’S SO-CALLED APOLOGY - TOTALLY REJECTED
Let nobody tell us that Rude Karaoke Minister was sincere about that rambling so-called apology he delivered on social media yesterday. As far as we are concerned we do not accept any such nonsense. And to attempt to use that as a path to political restoration is totally unacceptable. Sierra Leoneans are much more serious-minded than Karaoke Minister imagines.
