Hon. Sahr E. Juana, the Member of Parliament from Kailahun District, has written a letter to President Julius Maada Bio to express his reservations about the decision of the SLPP to dump him with an APC operative as his challenger.

Hon. Juana stated that he is devastated and stressed, as he won his primaries fair and square, and accused some opportunistic influential members of overturning his joy to sorrow.

He reminded President Bio that he sacrificed his all to celebrate him for the first time in Kissi Teng when the SLPP was finding an entry there in 2018, and stated that he did not join the SLPP to only become an MP. He further revealed that those who advised President Bio on this matter are not doing well for his presidency and for the SLPP that they claimed they love.

Hon. Juana said he had been silent against all insults and discrimination from his opponents, supporters, and influential party supporters out of respect for his party’s norms and values. However, he cannot be pushed any further, and any attempt to convert the popular wish of the people will be met with stiff resistance.

He, therefore, called on President Julius Maada Bio to review his decision and allow the will of the people of Constituency 002 and Kissi Bendu, which his father fought for, to prevail. He concluded by stating that his challenger is not only the people’s choice, but he is also in breach of section 76(1) B of the Constitution of Sierra Leone.
