Sierra Leone Telegraph: 22 June 2016
There is a fake letter dated June 15th 2016, claiming to be from the Social Welfare Ministry. It shows the unauthorised names and passport details of individuals pretending to be government officials from the Sierra Leone ministry responsible for signing the 2016 Hajj Accord with the Saudi Arabian government. (Photo: Mines minister – Minkailu Mansaray – in red shirt).
Not a single one of the five names listed, works at the Ministry of Social Welfare, which for over 50 years now, has been the ministry solely responsible for Hajj affairs.
Very fraudulently obtained NOTE VERBALE from the Director General of Sierra Leone Foreign Ministry – Madam Kadi Bassir, is then sent to the Saudi Embassy in Conakry, Guinea, presenting the mines minister Minkailu Mansaray, two private businessmen and two religious/Arabic clerics as being responsible to act on behalf of the Social Welfare Minister.
All this was done, without the knowledge of the minister of social welfare. Strange but absolutely true. ‘Salone na place.’
When the minister of social welfare – Sylvia Blyden (Photo – with president Koroma) found out and attempted to investigate the criminal activity, which originated from her ministry in connivance with the minister of mines – Alhaji Minkailu Mansaray, she was physically threatened with attack in her office by the Director of Social Welfare, who has been proven to be the one who actually typed the unauthorized letter on behalf of the mines minister Minkailu Mansaray and the private businessmen.
Why was the Director of social welfare so emboldened as to behave in that way, and to such an extent of even threatening the head of the ministry – pointing fingers to her face? Who is ‘pumping him up’ against his minister and political head of social welfare?
Who are the persons that have panicked to the extent of spreading a whole host of nonsense and outrageous lies against a female cabinet minister, whom many right-thinking Sierra Leoneans have come to greatly admire in just two months of her being in office?
Who really believes the utter trash written as “REAL NEWS” by an anonymous author?
Alhaji Minkailu Mansaray (Photo), can the social welfare minister sign a mining contract on behalf of the Sierra Leone government?
Alhaji Minkailu Mansaray wants to illegally sign the Hajj Accord with Saudi Arabia on behalf of the Sierra Leone government, when there is a minister responsible for religious affairs.
This is such a bad behaviour by an Alhaji, especially during this Holy month of Ramadan. Alhaji Minkailu do you see the big trouble you have now caused? You have gone into another ministry and messed up the officials.
They have been misled by you into thinking that your position as APC party Deputy Leader, gives you the power to interfere in other ministries. Your behaviour is very shameful. You are using your position as APC Deputy Leader to intimidate people and worst of all, to undermine your cabinet colleague in her ministry.
This is why the ministry of social welfare officials are now boldly challenging the social welfare minister assigned by His Excellency. YOU, Alhaji Minkailu Mansaray have emboldened them, and it is disgraceful. You have caused this whole problem. This is pure Haram in the Holy Month ALHAJI.
How can the mines minister sign a letter on behalf of the social welfare minister, without the social welfare minister knowing anything about it?
Now that they have committed Haram in the holy month of Ramadan, they have gone into panic and started paying boys to spread lies.
Let me end by saying that I, Madam Cheryl Blyden, am a very bright red and loyal APC Party member, who was born APC. I formally registered and took my APC card in the year 2003.
I faithfully paid my APC dues, through the APC National Treasurer – Comrade Sanie Sesay throughout the years that the APC was in the opposition wilderness, long before the year 2007.
But truly speaking, as an APC member, let me say that our Deputy APC Leader and Chairman Alhaji Minkailu Mansaray is disgracing our party.
