The current leader of the National Grand Coalition (NGC), Dr. Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella fondly called KKY is reportedly in a dilemma as both the ruling Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) and the main opposition All Peoples Congress (APC) are in race to grab his membership status ahead of the forth coming 2023 multitier elections.

During KKY’s time of grief after the recent demise of his beloved wife, both leadership of APC including the front of the 2023 multitier elections , Dr Samura Kamara and the SLPP led by President Julius Maada Bio went to sympathize with him.

The sources furthered that President Bio however has not come up with any definite position for KKY and it is very difficult not to go with Dr.Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh who is a very likeable personality.
Meanwhile, KKY is yet to make his choice or rather remain with the NGC. However, it is expected to take some time as he is currently bereaved
