Aggrieved residents of Sahn-Malen Chiefdom, Pujehun District, who are very disgusted over Hon Shiaka Sama’s unpatriotic and ill-behaved conducts against Socfin Agricultural Company, have blamed the government of treating the MP with levity, even when his actions have the proclivity to undermine not only the president’s assurance to the outside world that Sierra Leone is safe for doing business but also to scare away future investors.
They told The Satellite that after Hon Sama’s diabolical plan to incite the community against Socfin and project them in bad light failed over the years, the independent MP has initiated a new attack on the company by peddling angry rants on social media platforms against the company.
Local authorities of Sahn-Malen Chiefdom said over the past weeks, Hon Shiaka Sama of Constituency 104, Sahn-Malen Chiefdom, Pujehun District was on social media peddling angry rants intended to incite violence against the company and also create insecurity in the Chiefdom.
The MP accused Socfin of killing his people with hunger and starvation and giving bribes to Paramount Chiefs, an allegation the chiefs do not take kindly to, and also made several sweeping and baseless allegations.
“The global sabotage tactics now employed by the independent MP to destroy Socfin, with the government do nothing to put an end to it, will definitely dampen President Bio’s effort in luring investors into the country,” they warned.
They said an official complaint has been lodged to the relevant authorities against Hon Sama for inciting youths within the chiefdom to protest and shut down Socfin Agricultural Company with threat of kidnapping and holding hostage foreign workers. This saw the company’s operations shut down for the past days.
This same MP, they said, who thinks he is above the law because he continues to enjoy immunity from the government was also accused of instructing the youths of Senegeh Village to organize a Poro initiation ceremony without knowledge and prior approval of the Paramount Chief and chiefdom authorities with the aim to create state of insecurity in the areas and stop the company’s operations.
The residents said even though the Resident Minister South engaged Hon Sama and the community people to find a peaceful and lasting solution to the problem, Hon. Sama made all sort of disparaging comments against the President and Vice President in that meeting and threatened to walk out.
They said Hon Sama authoritatively stated that he has lost confidence and trust in both the President and Vice President, which according to the, simply means that he is highly determined to continue with his diabolic plans to create insecurity in the community, since he has no regard for the President and Vice President,” the people said.
“ Hon Sama is “fanning” violence in the chiefdom, therefore government needs to take prompt action to save the community” they urged.
