Sierra Leone News: Kamarainba takes worker to court

Former Presidential candidate of the Alliance Democratic Party (ADP), Mohamed Kamarainba Mansaray, has brought a lawsuit against one of his election campaign volunteers.
It is alleged that the volunteer, Mohamed Bangura, on 2 May 2018 in Freetown incited Edward Abass Fofanah, one of Mansaray’s security guards to steal money and set fire to Mansaray’s residence in Goderich in Freetown. Fofanah never did set fire to the house nor steal the money.
The ADP leader, on Monday 11 June 2018, gave evidence at the Siaka Stevens Street Magistrate Court. He informed the Court that he was in Makeni when he received and information from Fofanah.
He immediately came to Freetown where he was handed audio recordings of the convict inciting the security guard. Mansaray said he reported the matter at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
Defence counsel for the accused, J.M. Jengor applied that Bangura be put on bail. The prosecution objected to the application for bail on tendencies that the accused might interfere with the witness who had the audio recordings.
The Magistrate refused the bail application for the second time and adjourned the matter to 18 June 2018.
