    George Ware,the present president of Liberia gained international fame on the football field and brought recognition to his home country. He also represented his country in international soccer tournaments and though the Liberian national team is never a contender in regional football competitions, not to mention, the global stage, yet he did his best to develop the sport in his country. So it was not difficult for him to clinch the presidency when he ran for the office, and this was in part because of the appreciation of his people. Mohamed Kallon, on the other hand have not had the same luck. Although he also gained international fame on the football field and have represented Sierra Leone in several international competitions, sometimes even spending his own money to pay air fare and accommodation for his teammates, his countrymen still fail to recognize his effort. It is a pity that he is unable to garner any support for his bid to head SLFA. With so much wealth of experience, what better person is suited for that position. However, like every other thing that happens in Salone; favoritism, politics, and the pull people down syndrome have once again won the day.
