A renowned Tonkolili politician and socialite, Madam Fatmata Kamara, widely known as FA Kilimanjaro, has officially tendered her resignation from the opposition All People’s Congress (APC) on January 12th, 2024.

According to reports from Awareness Times, the former APC powerhouse, who played a pivotal role in leading the 2017 campaign advocating for the selection of the then Justice Minister and Attorney General, Joseph Fitzgerald Kamara, as the 2018 APC Presidential Candidate, did not provide any explicit reasons for her decision to part ways with the political party.

Speculation is rife that Madam Fatmata Kamara’s departure is linked to a growing unease within certain APC factions.

Efforts are currently underway to persuade FA Kilimanjaro to reconsider her resignation from the APC. However, sources close to her suggest that she is already being courted by the ruling Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) to join their ranks.

The political landscape awaits further developments as this unexpected shift in allegiance raises questions about the future trajectory of Madam Fatmata Kamara’s political career.
