The Mayor of Freetown City Council, Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr, should RESIGN in SHAME. Aki-Sawyerr’s tribalistic rants are so rawly anti-Mende that public office-holders who OFFICIALLY promote such illiberalism should be forced to resign. Needless to say, tribalism is alive and well in Sierra Leone.
Ernest Koroma was so tribalistic in office that Temne-Limba supremacy in government was unmistakable.
Rather than chart a new national path, President Maada Bio is the latest ultratribalist in power, with Mendes in ABSOLUTE control of the state.
Anyone who denies the existence of Maada Bio’s NAKED TRIBALISM is being DISHONEST.
Why, then, should Yvonne Aki-Sawyeer resign? The odiousness of Aki Sawyerr’s bigotry lies in the use of her OFFICIAL capacity to OFFICIALLY promote tribalism against Mendes, an ethnic group she particularly hates.
I am going to describe Aki-Sawyerr’s hatred of Mendes as the “Officialization of tribalism.”
Speaking in her OFFICIAL CAPACITY as head of the Freetown City Government, Aki-Sawyerr singled out Mendes for vitriol, and confessed to executing an anti-Mende policy in office.
If Aki-Sawyerr still has a shred of decency in her veins, she would apologize on national television, RESIGN and fade into obscurity.
May God have mercy on POLITICALLY UNFORTUNATE Sierra Leone.
