Since President Bio was elected on April this, he has embarked on what many people have described as “unlawful sackings.”

The removal of the former Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Ady Macaulay without following the due process is the first amongst the catalogue of President Bio’s undue sackings.

Patrick Conteh, Governor of the Bank of Sierra Leone was also another victim of President Bio’s ‘unprocedural’ sacking in violation of the Bank of Sierra Leone Act.

Recently, the Ombudsman of Sierra Leone, Melron Nicol Wilson was also relieved of his duty without the President going through the due process as stipulated in the Ombudsman Act of 1997.

Catalogue of some of these unlawful sackings and allegations of political motivated violence have reached the UK Parliament last Tuesday 4 September in Foreign Office Questions.

“We are aware of recent allegations of political motivated violence and we continued to monitor the situation,” Harriett Balwin UK Minister of African Affaird told the UK Parliament.

She continued that the new government has made a commitment to govern for all Sierra Leoneans but called upon them to honour this pledge and to ensure due process in all cases.

Niel Coyle, member of UK Parliament for Bermondsey and Old Southwark said that he will like the Minister to meet with Sierra Leoneans in his constituency who are unhappy with the current political situation in Sierra Leone.
