In a stunning display of honesty and determination, mayoral candidate Mohamed Gento Kamara of the ruling Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) confessed his lack of oratory prowess during the launch of his manifesto, titled ‘Freetown For We All,’ on Saturday, June 3rd, 2023.
Kamara asserted that he preferred to let his actions speak louder than words.
Addressing a crowd of enthusiastic supporters gathered for the campaign event, Kamara boldly admitted, “I am not a good speaker, I am a man of action.” With this declaration, the mayoral hopeful sought to emphasize his dedication to delivering tangible results for the city rather than relying on mere rhetoric.
Encouraging Freetonians to read his manifesto, Kamara passionately expressed his commitment to working diligently and implementing practical solutions to address the city’s challenges.
“Freetown deserves leaders who will do the right things,” he emphasized, inviting residents to familiarize themselves with his plans to propel the capital towards progress and prosperity.
Kamara’s manifesto, ‘Freetown For We All,’ outlines a comprehensive vision for the city, focusing on key areas such as infrastructure development, social services, job creation, and environmental sustainability. By centering his campaign on actionable solutions, Kamara aims to bridge the gap between promises made during election campaigns and their actual implementation.
The candid acknowledgment of Kamara’s speaking abilities resonated with many Freetonians, who often express skepticism towards empty rhetoric. His commitment to being a man of action aligns with a growing demand among voters for political leaders who prioritize tangible results over persuasive speeches.
As the June 24th, 2023 elections draw near, Kamara’s refreshingly honest approach has garnered attention and support from diverse sections of Freetown’s population. While he may not possess the gift of eloquence, Kamara’s determination to effect meaningful change may prove to be the compelling factor that sets him apart in a crowded mayoral race.
Only time will tell if Kamara’s sincerity and dedication will resonate strongly enough with voters, propelling him to victory and granting Freetown a leader who prioritizes action over words.
