“He is a Wolf in a Sheep’s Clothing” – Sacked Vice President, Sam-Sumana Blasts Ernest Bai Koroma

The once sacked Vice President of Sierra Leone, Alhaji Samuel Sam-Sumana has blasted former president of Sierra Leone, Ernest Bai Koroma, referring to him as a wolf in a sheep clothing.

Sam-Sumana made this assertion while addressing residents of the Jui Community in the Western Area Rural district.

The former Vice President said that he joined the All Peoples Congress (APC) on the request of Ernest Bai Koroma, rejecting ministerial and ambassadorial offers from late President of Sierra Leone, Ahmed Tejan Kabba.

“I refused and I said as a business man we need to change Sierra Leone,” he said, “I thought I was working with the right person to change Sierra Leone, but he (Ernest Bai Koroma) is a wolf in a sheep clothing.

Sam-Sumana further accused the former president of deceiving the people of Sierra Leone.

“He told us that he would run the country as a business, and we were ignorant, not knowing that he was running it to make money for himself and his family members, instead of the people of Sierra Leone,” he said.

On March 17, 2015, Sierra Leone’s President Ernest Bai Koroma sacked Sam-Sumana as vice president on the ground that he had abandoned his position to seek an asylum in the United States Embassy in Freetown, and for not belonging to a political party as stated in the constitution.

Sam-Sumana said his sacking by president Ernest Bai Koroma was unconstitutional and appealed to the Supreme Court of Sierra Leone.

He then led a breakaway faction of the APC known as Coalition for Change (C4C) and contested in the 2018 elections winning 8 Parliamentary seats and several council seats in the strategic Kono district.
