President Bio's Cousin, Accused of Raping 12 Year Old, Appointed Director!
By a press release (23/12/18)
Wonders never end under the SLPP govt! A cousin of the President, accused of raping a 12-year-old, has just been given a Director job!!
Latest reports say James Bio formerly of SALWACO and a cousin of the Sierra Leone President Julius Maada Bio has been appointed by State House on instructions of his cousin President to serve as Project Director at the Ministry of Water Resources. (Photo: Is President Bio embarrassed?).
The most interesting and startling part of this appointment is the fact that Mr. James Bio, the president's cousin, was few years ago, accused of raping a twelve year old girl who incidentally happens to be his own niece.
The matter which had been pending in court since 2013 has not come up for adjudication as James Bio continues to use his political influence to suppress the matter whilst the mother of the victim and the poor girl herself continue to suffer in silence.
According to the Times Sierra Leone newspaper that initially published the story, they have promised to bring out the whole truth again by providing the proof to the police and court.
Astonishing that a bad man like James Bio could be nepotistically promoted in public office whilst dodging justice because of political and family connections. It clearly undermines President Bio's 'Hands off our Girls Campaign' by appointing a man stand accused of raping a 12 year old girl.
