“It’s a real breath of fresh air. In the last 24 hours I’ve read many comments by fanatical supporters of the governing SLPP party criticizing the statement made by the Minister-designate, Dr Dennis Sandy. They’ve not blindly defended him because he’s one of their own. Nor have they labeled many others for criticizing him. This is how we make progress. Not through bigotry!” - Umaru Fofana
I read the statement on FB above and was confused because I didn’t know what Dr. Sandy had done and then I read Spencer’s piece yesterday, which was posted here.
Do you think when Sandy went in radio or TV to extend the cleanup time (sidom nar ode/House tem) he acted on his own? Are they throwing him under the bus? I really do not know.

#SierraLeone’s information minister, Mohamed Rahman Swarray has contradicted an edict by the lands and environment minister-designate, Dr Dennis Sandy extending by four hours the national cleaning day today. He said everyone should go about their normal business. There was outrage on social media after Dr Sandy announced on local radio that the cleaning exercise had been so effective in Freetown that all must stay at home beyond the 12:00noon time issued by the president in April, if only to clear the filth left behind by today’s exercise. Latent protests had started brewing when it appeared that some weddings and other functions planned for the afternoon were being jeopardized.

@Tolongbo, not good for Denis.
By the way, wasn’t Denis a former PMDC member who served as a cabinet minister under EBK?
