Makeni Mayor loses out

The incumbent Mayor of the Makeni City Council, Moses Sesay, yesterday lost woefully to acquire the APC symbol for the 2012 to a female aspirant, Sunkarie Kabba Kamara.
The Makeni City Mayor only got 9 votes, but residents told Awoko that he was inept in the implementation of development projects in the Township of Makeni and did very little to improve the livelihood of the people.
However John Shangai Koroma was also awarded the APC symbol after his contenders backed-out from a run off stage for the Bombali District Council Chairmanship.
The APC primaries on aspirants for councillorship for both city and district councils, ended yesterday with out of 28 sitting councilors and the district council, the electoral college voted out 26 councillors returning only two and the city council electoral college voted out eleven councilors, retaining only four.
The decision on who succeeds outgoing District Council Chairman will be taken by a 100 man electoral college today at the Makeni city hall.
