The Leader of the All People’s Congress (APC), Dr. Samura Mathew Wilson Kamara on Friday attended prayers at Mahera Village in Port Loko District on the verge of keeping his tradition and legacy.
The Leader and the chairman of the party, Ambassador Osman Foday Yansaneh also joined the villagers of Mahera for their sacred Friday prayers. Their visit was said to be a tribute to an enduring legacy, that of the legendary Bai Bureh, who led the Hut Tax War.
The presence of the Leader in Madina was not merely a political maneuver but to pay homage to Bai Bureh, a warrior whose spirit arguably embodies the APC’s ethos of resistance and empowerment.
Report showed that the visit of the APC leader to Mahera drew a direct line from the past to the present, from the struggle against colonial rule to today’s fight for social justice and development.
The visit also encompasses affairs, drawing Muslims and Christians, young and old, in a show of unity that defies the divisiveness often seen in contemporary politics.
