Sierra Leonean Blasts the Indictment of Gento in the 25 Billion Bridge as Very Unfair!

By D-Leaf (10/06/18)

Why should Ahmed Gento Kamara, a Sierra Leonean Construction Engineer living among us face indictment for the 25 billion bridge?


This strong and popular businessman in road construction has to be envied because with the emergence of the Local Content Policy, he is the only one qualified for such projects. (Photo: Genko Kamara, top left, should be appreciated rather than maligned in Sierra Leone). 

Gento is handling the Hill Cut/Jomo Kenyatta Road and Kingharman Road and the Waterloo Village etc. The company faced several challenges such as the availability of equipment and materials for critical areas like maintenance and fuel and personnel and the weather plus administrative requirements.

It is clear that the modification did not relate to the reconstruction of the King Jimmy embarkment but is for the rehabilitation of other feeder roads in the vicinity of King Jimmy as asserted by the Audit Report.

Let us also note that the additional contract was awarded to the existing contractor and the Audit Report stated that the administration should have initiated a new procurement proceeding for the addition made. Who is the administration and who must have initiated a new procurement?

If Sierra Leone Road Authority SLRA is in breach of the statutes, then who should answer? Gento is the contractor and did his job according to the terms of reference stated. Gento did his best at Hill Cut Road and now we could at least feasibly use the two lanes on one side of the road, the Kingharman Road is also about to be finished, Waterloo Road is also complete.

Ahmed Gento Kamara I believe must be encouraged in leading road maintenance in Sierra Leone.
