Tongo Fields Landowners to Protest against Octae Mining Company

Tongo Fields, March 31 (SLENA) - Members of the landowning families for the concessional diamond land in Tongo fields are planning a demonstration against Octae Mining Company in the Lower Bambara Chiefdom, Kenema District.

According to the residents, the company has deliberately refused to honour their obligation as stipulated in the mining agreement that was endorsed by parliament in 2012. Investigation by this press revealed that Octea Mining Company has not paid surface rent for almost two consecutive years. What is more worrisome is that since the company manifested interest in the lucrative diamond area many other companies have been rejected and frustrated from undertaking activities on the concessional area.

Education: Dead or Alive?

Schools will reopen on the 14th April 2015 after nearly eight months closure because of the Ebola outbreak, with mixed feelings from all stakeholders.

  Government more than all the other players are the ones insisting and working assiduously to get kids back to school – evidently shouldering up to 80 percent of the expenses. It insists the catching up of lost time is feasible, if the other players can only play their part.

  The other players, like the parents, are themselves worried about the lost time, but they are also equally worried about the trailing shadow of Ebola. The skeptical ones among them can’t understand why the whole year shouldn’t be lost until the full exit of the virus – so everyone will be fully prepared for the next academic year.

View Point

WHY SLPPs ALWAYS THINK AND FEEL THEY ARE THE BEST OR MORE EDUCATED PEOPLE TO RULE THE COUNTRY?

Although sometimes it is not good to open old wounds, because it triggers sorrowful events, good memory or emotional feelings, especially to those who were/are directly or indirectly being affected.

  However, it is because of the good and bad issues that history was made for reference or reflection purpose, especially for those who are very quick to forget. Therefore, sometimes it is necessary to remind them, by calling their attention to some of their wicked inhumane barbaric deeds and comments.
