This 419 conduct is the kind of thing that would make the youths stone Bio with bethas [orange peels] during the days of Borbor Kamara and Kandeh Bureh.
With shame and disgrace and in a further exhibition of how he hasbeen conducting his travels since he was elected as flagbearer of the mainopposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party, Julius Maada Bio virtually sneaked backinto the country, reportedly at 4am in the morning of yesterday Sunday June24th 2012. Reports prior are that Bio travels over land across the border toGuinea to travel in and out of the country.
Most of the time, he avoids the use of Lungi Airport for inexplicable reasons.This time, he reportedly used the airport but at 4am in the morning.
Bio’s arrival and departure out of London has remained mysteriousas no one has reported of any welcome or departure for him at any major Londonairport leaving speculations that he sneaked into London by road from Franceand using a passport with a different name on it. This rumour was reinforced byciting London newspapers calling him Julius Maada leaving out his Bio surname.
“Why all this cloak and dagger movements? A Presidential candidate travellingin secret is scary. Is it possible SLPP Flagbearer is travelling with a fakename and a fake passport?” asked a prominent Sierra Leone lawyer in California.
In Canada, Maada Bio was faced with serious embarrassment that sawhim forced to cancel a hotel conference room meeting with Sierra Leoneans whenplacards carrying relatives of those he is accused of brutally killing, stormedthe hotel. The Canadian Police had to be called in. Bio, is reported to havehidden in a private residence underground room (a basement) to hold a meetingwith only 13 persons attending including two children.
Similar reports of secret plans for him to have quietly travelledinto America by road like he is suspected to have done into London; this time usinga remote bridge over a river from Canada instead of through America’s mainairports have also been awash in the international social media.
However, the most startling aspect of Bio’s shady trips abroad which saw himand his fellow human rights abuser and fake Brigadier Sekouba Konate of Guineaaddressing insignificant, small side-room audiences in Canada has been hisinability to enter America despite his media handlers making a lot of noise andtales of Bio going to America this month. Maada Bio’s most voluble propagandistGLOBAL TIMES published a screaming headline on May 22nd 2012 saying ‘Maada Bio Leaves for USA June 16’. Itturned out it was a Baa Nya Fakee American Visa (i.e: A Fake American Visa). Asample of what a totally fake VISA looks like is on this page.
Out in America, even though it was a Baa Nya Fakee Visa, online news outletsoperated by SLPP unprofessional like Sheku Kallon, published stunts in the formof publicity flyers and stories of Bio’s arrival in America.
At this, concerned Sierra Leoneans, like Ambassador John Ernest Leigh inAmerica, raised an alarm on the world wide web that President Obama'sadministration has granted an entry VISA to Julius Maada Bio, a known humanrights abuser, in violation of the proclamation of Obama.
One of the most voluble propagandist of Bio, a Dr. P.K. Muana inTexas, responded thus: “John Leigh, you know that you do not have sufficientclout in the USA to stop Brig Julius Maada Bio from entering, successfullytouring, and meeting with major stakeholders in the USA”.
Continuing his claims, Muana confidently wrote of Maada Bio’meeting slated for around June 28th (this week) in Houston, Texas.
“Trust me - Julius Maada Bio’s tour of the USA will be very very successful andwe will be personally hosting him in Houston, Texas as part of his tour. I canguarantee you that not even a mouse will squeak against ourPresident-in-waiting Julius Maada Bio in Houston Texas.”
Muana further boasted as follows: “Ambassador, I will be personally inviting myfriends, Okoroji Kargbo, OrBangs, Coleson, Yatta Sesay and other APC members inHouston to the Town Hall meeting with Julius Maada Bio and I will be sharingthe pictures with you to show you that there will be zero protests and alltotal adulation for our President in Waiting, Maada Bio”.
In response, former Ambassador Leigh who knows the corridors of the UnitedStates Government, did not say a single word. Little did Muana know hissarcastic comments inspired Sierra Leoneans to institute further steps which thiswriter will soon be reporting extensively on.
Those steps resulted in the U.S. Embassy in Freetown breaking all of theirusual protocols to grant an exclusive interview to a London based news outletthat Bio does not have any visa to go to America. Since that time, thefloodgates have been opened for Sierra Leoneans to subject the SLPP and JuliusMaada Bio to mockery.
