Response to an Open Letter to the President (originally written by Idrissa Munu): Comment from Foday T. Jabbie, another former Sanda Progressive Union President.

Thank you Mr. Idrissa Munu for your open letter to the President of the Republic of Sierra Leone – Ernest Bai Koroma. Your letter is well written and particularly noted for pointing out the economic and historic importance of the Sanda Region, which is an indisputable fact. You are correct in stating that Kasseh, the native hometown of Baibureh, the man who fought against the Bristish to liberate Sierra Leone from colonial domination will be an interesting place for tourists to visit – not to mention his farms where the history of Sierra Leone was enacted.

One must also commend you to enumerate the commercial importance of the Sanda Region starting from Kamakwie, Kamalo, Kamaranka, Rokulan, Mateboi, Patkanu, Gbenti and Port Loco. Indeed the British Colonial masters were not stupid to have developed these roads. To see them deteriorating in such an increasing way is shameful.

Mr. President, you always say you welcome ideas and this is an idea whose time has come. I join Mr. Idrissa Munu in his appeal to you to include Sanda Region when rehabilitating the twelve major roads within the country of Sierra Leone.

I end this letter by commending the editor of the Patriotic Vanguard for publishing such an important letter. I hope that as we continue to emphasize the significance of developing a better and stronger Sierra Leone where nepotism has no place that the other editors will do what is in the best interest of our country and follow suit.
