Making highfalutin speeches would not clean the image of a tainted political hack. This attorney only quotes the constitution when the shoe is in the other foot. The speech by the way was on point; but delivery was by wrong messenger. Here is what someone wrote in The Organizer"

"Her speech yesterday was great; but the truth is, Basita Michael is blatantly insincere. We can't just forget in a hurry what she wrote back in 2015 when President Koroma sacked his Vice President. Basita, wrote that we had to analyze the issue beyond the constitution. Can you imagine that?
"In other words by seeking asylum or refugee status he (the VP) removed himself from his own office with the intention of no longer being part of this government. The subsequent announcement therefore by the president of the dismissal of the VP was just a natural consequence of the unwillingness of the VP to be subject to our jurisdiction," Basita Michael.
Basita, like many other lawyers that we all know, did not side with the Constitution at that penultimate time; so I wonder why she now wants to be the "poster girl" for constitutionality. Basita's sudden encounter with Christ is very unconvincing to ardent and unwavering defenders of the Constitution".
