Sierra Leone Telegraph: 11 August 2018:
The war of words which started between the APC party and SLPP, following the defeat of the APC at the polls in March 2018, is simply refusing to go away.
Whilst the ruling SLPP are accusing the opposition APC of trying to sabotage its government and making the country ungovernable, APC party grandees say that supporters of the SLPP are violently attacking and intimidating their supporters.
They are also accusing the ruling SLPP of unfairly sacking their members from public office. But it is the APC allegation of SLPP supporters killing their supporters that has sparked the latest row.
This is an official letter sent yesterday, Saturday 10th August, 2018, to the opposition APC by the SLPP in response to the serious accusation of SLPP killing APC supporters:
Time has come to start pointing fingers at the main culprit of violence in the country. SLPP has never and will never use violence, let alone attack another political party. Be sure of this.
Osman Yansaneh is a lowlife that can go to any extent to seek attention and sympathy. I hope the SLPP can sue him for damages. Yansaneh is also the personification of APC’s uselessness and recklessness.
