VEHICLE SALES POINTS AND THE PARKING WAHALA IN FREETOWN

As with many other things, the Freetown City Council has completely lost control of parking space in the Central Business District. Yes we know they hardly have control over anything but this one is up to our necks. The whole area is now an unregulated free-for-all space. The problem has been compounded by car sellers parking their wares on the streets waiting for customers. If it took two years for somebody to buy the cars, they will parked in the same place for all those 24 months.

WHAT ARE THE QUALITIES OF A SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT?

Looks like we will still be talking about the office of the Vice President in this country until we get Sam Sumana’s elected successor. It may well be a key issue in election 2018 - when the most important verdict will be delivered on the issue. The judges have done their bit and we respect that. But watch out for the people's verdict.

ARMED MEN IN NEIGHBOURING LIBERIA? VERY SCARY STUFF

This is certainly not good news for our country - that armed foreigners entered Liberia. Apart from the potential for such a development causing trouble for our dear neighbours, there exists the possibility of Sierra Leone being drawn into another mess from across the border. It's that serious!

WHEN POLITICIANS FALL OVER THEMSELVES TO DEFEND FREE SPEECH

For the first time ever in this history of independent Sierra Leone, Ruling Party politicians have gone into trenches to fight for "FREE SPEECH" right of a group of naked sycophants and their allies in so-called Civil Society organisations to say anything they feel like saying as long as it favours the More Time campaign on which pins the hope to extend De Pa's hold on power in Sierra Leone. As far as the nation is concerned, De Pa has not made any such case. We are waiting for that day.

ARE WE BEING OVERRUN BY FIRE, FIRE FIRE, EVERYWHERE?

Since fire hit that petrol station at Kissy, Freetown has experienced more fires in different places. The northern town of Lunsar has also been hit. Is the capital facing the possibility of being wiped out by fire? Even as a mere journalistic question that looks too extreme but many residents of Freetown in particular would understand why we are so concerned. Electricity House in the heart of the city has been hit twice in the last few weeks.
