Pa Sama Banya, the snickering Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP ) veteran, with the mischievous grin, who enjoys poking fun at people, must have an odd sense of humor. He has just poked fun at himself by reporting in the New People Online newspaper that he has been denied a U.S. visa (That is, if the old man is not trying to pull an April Fool on his detractors , though I can bet my life that my “njagbay” is not senile enough not to know that it is not April ). The article surprised many people yesterday and unless he is testing the waters to catch out gloating detractors, the old man should be commended for his frankness . Is there another top SLPP official who needs to come out clean like Old Man Banya ? Somerset, New Jersey should have hosted a masterclass today and the city must have gone green since yesterday but the last time Foday Mansaray and I checked, it was YAIN-YAIN YAIN DOE RIBBI ! ! ! ! Why is SLPP Presidential candidate Maada Bio not in New Jersey ? Today is Saturday June 23, 2012 . He was supposed to have been Grand Chief Patron at a massive SLPP Dance here today where my friend, Jerry George ( the new SLPP North American Chair and his executive) , were to have been inaugurated. And my njagbays are all mum about it ? WOW. No apologies even to ticket-bearers who had purchased their tickets well ahead of schedule ? . No explanation even to the public ? Ay, njagbays. Do not shame Takoyo who handed you the cow’s head ! ! ! Tell the people the truth. Where is Maada Bio ? Why is he not in Somerset today ?
