Sierra Leone is to participate in the Health Environment and Climate Change Ministerial Meeting at the conference of the parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change schedule to take place on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at Blue Zone Moroccan Pavilion, Morocco.
The meeting which is designed for 150-200 participants with the Deputy Minister of Health and Sanitation 1, Madam Madina Rahman deputizing the Minister of Health and Sanitation Dr. Abu Bakarr Fofanah will address key areas on the current state of progress on environmental health risks and opportunities, mobilization of the health and environment communities on a common agenda, measuring country progress on health and environment, and assessing the health gains that countries can expect through more ambitious actions.
The feverish climax to America’s elections approach and since I cannot participate, why not reminiscence the most dramatic elections we have had in our country , seconded only by the 2007 elections .
This was one of the records being played then by the SLBS, which had suspended all its regular programs and was “playing continuous music on gramaphone records ” , while the whole nation waited in spellbinding suspense for the results. Life had come to a standstill and whole day and night people were flocked around transistor radios
In boxing, a fighter who punches above his weight is in essence a fighter in a lower weight division fighting another boxer in a higher weight division. In such circumstance, the fighter in the higher weight division, in all likelihood, is more dominant with greater power to defeat the fighter in the lower weight division.
The title of this opinion has been drafted deliberately in similar terms but does not pity judges over government ministers or parliamentarians. What I really wanted to discuss is whether judges in Sierra Leone and England (following two recent High Courts’ decisions handed down this week) have the constitutional power to decide those cases in the way they did.
A man call Donald Trump is currently creating bad history for future American History books. Trump is behaving like some members of one of our oldest political parties in Sierra Leone, the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP).
The SLPP is now known as the Pa-O-Pa (at all costs) party; they think they should have political power at all costs, even if the people reject them at the polls. If not they would not accept the elections, just like what they were saying in 2012. When I am talking about Pa-O-Pa, I am not just talking about a particular faction within the SLPP that is filled with cracks like an old building that will surely lead its supporters into the wilderness (not Gola Forest bush shaking) for another ten years come 2018. I am saying they are behaving like Donald Trump.
