Former Presidential aspirant of the All People’s Party (APC), Dr. Samura Kamara has lent voice to the various corruption allegations trailing various officials in the government of Sierra Leone led by President Julius Maada Bio.
A U.S. based media agency, Africanist Press has in recent times published several allegations of corruption and sleaze at State House in Freetown, first involving the wife of the President – Mrs Fatima Bio and most recently, the Chief Minister – Professor David Francis.
Some of the allegations against Mrs Bio, include claims that she received nearly Le30 billion Leones (almost US$3 million) of government funds in less than three years after the inauguration of her husband, Julius Maada Bio as president of Sierra Leone in May 2018.
Similarly, a damning report published by the Africanist Press show how the Office of the Chief Minister of Sierra Leone spent over Le34.2 billion Leones (more than US$3.4 million) in less than three years, despite the fact that President Maada Bio was elected into office in 2018 under the guise of ending the corrupt practices of his predecessor, as well as promising to close all loopholes and leakages in ministerial and public spending.
Speaking to Sierraloaded over the weekend following a successful APC National Advisory Council (NAC) meeting to conduct the party’s convention, Samura described the financial impropriety in the current government as a fulfilment of his 2018 prophecy.
“…I am not surprised as during the debate in 2018, I made it very clear that all what the SLPP were saying was because they never understood. I told them if they get to the seat then they will see how different it is from what they had been saying. And that has come to pass.”, Samura said.
