The Mayoral Candidate for the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP), Mohamed Gento Kamara has promised to fix Freetown’s problems in his first 100 days in office.

Some of his promises include installing street lights on major roads and streets in the city and also fixing the capital’s pipe-borne water crisis.

His promise came during an interview about his first 100 days in office with AYV TV.

“We are fixing the problem and we are fixing it the Freetonian way with style,” he said.

He encouraged locals in the Sierra Leonean capital to vote for him because he believes that his story is synonymous with many inhabitants of the city.

He spoke about his humble beginning.

“Mohamed Gento Kamara knows your (Freetonians) problems and that Eastern Magazine Kissy boy that knows how to fix the problem because I have gone through it,” the SLPP Mayoral Candidate stated.

He spoke about his primary and secondary education at Kissy Municipal Primary School and Ahmadiyya Muslim Secondary School both located at Dock Yard, Kissy in the east of the city.

“If you don’t feel the problem, you won’t be able to fix it.

“You need someone proper that is ready to fold up his sleeves to fix it,” Gento said.

He stressed that the problems of the city cannot be solved by sitting at the desk.

Gento also referenced his CV with his work as team manager of Sierra Leone Premier League side, East End Lions, and the construction of the Hill Cut Road by his company, Gento Group.

“So, Freetonians make your choice and your choice should be Mohamed Gento Kamara because I’m a result-oriented person,” he said.

Gento will have to face stiff competition from the incumbent All People’s Congress (APC) Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr. The two have a no-love-lost relationship especially when the SLPP candidate accused his competition of tribalism.
