Cynics Dub SLPP's Maiden Ministerial Appointments as Real Show of 'Tribalism!

By a press release (13/04/18)

Cynics of President Julius Maada Bio have described the maiden SLPP government's ministerial appointments as tribally based so far.


A press release from State House yesterday disclosed the first ministerial appointments by the new SLPP government. Critics say no Sierra Leonean of Limba origin was appointed in the SLPP government so far. The opposition APC party is normally described as a Limba party. (Photo: President Bio with VP Dr. Juldeh Jalloh, right, looks on). Below is the latest nominations which many critics have dubbed 'Mende Based':

1. Minister of Finance - Jacob Jusu Saffa, Mende, President Bio's ethnic group;
2. Attorney General and Minister of Justice - Charles Francis Margai, Mende-Sherbro;
3. Minister of Primary and Secondary Education - Alpha Timbo, Fullah;
4. Minister of Health and Sanitation - Alpha T. Wurie, Fullah;
5. Minister of Energy - Kanja Sesay, Mandingo-Mende;
6. Minister of Information and Communication - Mohamed Swaray, Mende;
7. Minister of Marine Resources, Emma Kowa, Mende;
8. Minister of Labour and Social Security - Adekunle Joliff Milton King, Krio;
9. Minister of Water Resources - Jonathan Tengbe, Mende;
10. Minister of Social, Gender and Children’s Affairs - Baindu Dassama, Mende;
11. Minister of Internal Affairs - Edward A. Soluku, Mende;
12. Deputy Defense Minister - Simeon Sheriff, Mende;
13, Financial Secrerary - Sahr Lahai Jusu, Mende.

"Is this the change people are talking about? What a shame Mr. President! We must liberate ourselves from TRIBALISM and POLITICAL PATRONAGE," and angry APC supporters echoes. Below is a list of appointees that made up the SLPP Transitional Team:
