Getting Away with Erroneous Death Numbers Because of Nature of Citizenry
Yesterday October 19th 2014 marks the 16th anniversary of the death of a dear adopted sister of mine, Kula Samba. I have always believed that she died because she lived in a country of sycophants who kow-towed to the leadership no matter the glaring, dangerous nonsense the leadership might be up to. I use the term leadership from a broad perspective to include all those in leadership positions from professional bodies to artisanal unions to civil society to local governments to MPs to Opposition Leaders up to State House. Kula Samba had to die because nobody was brave enough to say it was wrong. Records showed the only ones to protest the executions were the international community.

NASSIT’S FINANCIAL VIABILITY: AN ACTUARIAL OPINION
The belief that Sierra Leone’s only long term Social Security Scheme (NASSIT) may soon collapse due to administrative recklessness has been widely publicised over the years. Attempts have been made to justify this claim and some authors even go to the extent of suggesting that NASSIT may not be able to pay benefits in the next ten years. In a society where Social Security is still a new phenomenon even among the elites, this propaganda has thrived well and I am saddened by its new twist which I believe is not in the best interest of the country.

Sierra Leone News : Sierra Leone Ebola Crisis is Relentless
The Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone is proving to be unrelenting and with no clear-cut solution visible for now. The latest statistics for October 15th 2014 have brought despair to many as Koinadugu district has recorded confirmed cases and many suspected deaths from Ebola. In addition, whilst capital city Freetown of the Western Area alongside Bombali and Port Loko in North have been considered to be epicenters for many weeks now, latest numbers show Kenema and Kailahun have again started to record Ebola cases. Tonkolili in the center of the country is also now with more cases than the Southern district of Bo which was one of the first to be hit.

“...especially the degrading language therein that was laced with the President’s name alongside despicable MAMMY CUSS. It says a lot about innate character of BRIAN GILPIN, Personal Assistant to the President, if Mr. Brian Gilpin’s self-assembled Communications team has to always resort to nasty Ad Hominem attacks rather than handle salient issues affecting the legacy of President Koroma and the welfare of our beloved Sierra Leone...”

Sierra Leone: What Brian Gilpin and his Mammy Cuss Folks had wanted
As of October 1st 2014, I effectively resigned my position as Special Executive Assistant to the President. On Tuesday 30th September 2014, I had explained to His Excellency the President during a closed door meeting, as to why I had to resign. It was a calm and reasoned conversation. However, His Excellency firmly refused to accept my resignation. He instead asked me to wait until he returned from London that weekend. He had been slated to fly out the next day October 1st 2014 which was actually my birthday. Although my resignation was rejected by the President, there was no unpleasantness in that meeting. It was more like a brother-sister talk. Infact, before I left his office, he handed over my birthday present to me.
