Alie Kabba Campaign Team
Sierra Leone Telegraph: 27 May 2016
Today Saturday, 28th of May, 2016, in the bustling Eastern City of Kenema, Alie Badara Sanjan Kabba will take the stage to formally declare his intention to run for the SLPP flag and, ultimately, President of the Republic of Sierra Leone.

For Alie, seeking the presidency of our beloved but deprived country is not a hunt for personal trophy, but a search for national salvation.
As the fastest growing campaign on the ground, the Alie Kabba Campaign owes its upward rise to consistent adherence to an all-inclusive mantra of “everyone in, no one out; everyone up, no one down.”
Although the remaining stretch of this “long walk to freedom and progress” may yet prove to be the longest and the hardest, there can be no doubt that the last few steps leading to today have been very testing but unwaveringly solid.
It is a given that every next step will be one taken with an increasing solidity of purpose and perseverance that will never succumb to or be subdued by the prevailing challenges of our times.
Everyday, in many ways, we are reminded over and over again by the grueling facts of our grinding times that, if we must survive and thrive as a nation, we would need to unchain ourselves from the strangulating yoke of corrosive corruption and injustice.
The ordinary people are hungry and thirsty all across the land. The buckets of government lies are plenty and empty. Our country is suffering and sinking in a sickening sea of hopelessness.
That is why Alie Kabba and a steadily increasing number of patriotic Sierra Leoneans believe that, a united SLPP under the leadership of a radical progressive visionary is the right key to reversing this ugly trend and solving many of our nation’s
The words of Bockarie Samba, one of the SLPP delegates who would be casting his vote to determine the direction of the Party and perhaps the country, are worth weighing: “We like Alie Kabba not only because he says what we feel, but more so because we believe what he says.” Adding: “We are happy and proud to welcome this unbendable son of the soil home, and to help him win this big battle for us.”
Echoing a similar sentiment, Mrs Miatta Foday, a retired secondary school teacher and now a key opinion leader in the district, had this to say: “I have known Alie for many, many years. I have no doubt that he is one person who will do whatever he says he is going to do, and he will do it right.”
As he stands to unequivocally announce his intention to lead the country, Alie Kabba knows that he will be standing for and articulating the hopes and dreams of millions of Sierra Leoneans throughout the country, who are completely fed up with this crippling system and want a radical break from politics as usual.
More than three decades ago, as a young student in Kenema, Alie stood up firmly and fearlessly to speak truth to power at a time when a brutal dictatorship reigned supreme in the country. And he did it with courage, clarity, honesty, consistency and integrity.
Today, he will stand up again in the same city to ask Sierra Leoneans to walk with him to a brighter tomorrow. And, from all reports on the ground, THEY WILL.
