This report clearly demonstrate the incredible problems we have in Sierra Leone. It doesn’t take a genius to see that the parliamentarians, who we expect should be setting a good example, are just not responsible enough to know that as law makers they must respect and obey the law they make. They are so arrogant to go on to “openly challenge the position of the Speaker” because he will not condone blatant lawbreaking.

This particular MP was caught “driving an unregistered and unlicensed vehicle”. Despite being enlightened, given good advice and told the truth by the Honourable Speaker of Parliament, we hear that he was joined by other dishonourable MPs who then tried to “impeach” the principled Speaker upholding the dignity of Parliament.

These disgraceful MP’s have shown themselves to have no shame, unfit and not proper people to be law makers.

The public already know that individuals who break the law with impunity often call on politicians to interfere with the legal process of our nation.

Firstly, this shows why we need better quality MPs. I hope this MP is charged to court, dealt with for his criminal offence and rooted out at the next election. These are supposed to be our law makers.
Surely, this is clearly a case of perverting the course of justice. Thank God for a Speaker like the Honourable Mr Abel Stronge, who we all know is an honourable, decent and honest man.
President Ernest Bai Koroma has undoubtedly acted with integrity in foiling the disgusting move by the rest of his MPs.

Interesting. I hope it is now clear to everyone that NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW even in Sierra Leone. Speaker Abel Strong has done his job well. Our politicians, no matter how high, need to know that the police have a job to do, without fear or favour.
