Sierra Leone Sports: Stadium manager sacked

The new Director of Sports has sacked the Stadium Manager Musa Sesay.  This is according to a letter from the Director of Sports Dr Kenneth Brima to Musa Sesay captioned, ‘Termination of employment as Stadium Manager.’ It stated “We would like to notify you that you have been terminated of your duties as Stadium Manager of the National Stadium Management Brookfields, Freetown. Moreover, the Sports Directorate instructs that you handover all documents in your possession on or before the 5th December, 2018. The sports Directorate, appreciates and thank you for your tangible and intangible services to the ministry of sports.” Speaking to this medium after receiving the letter the former Stadium Manager expressed shock saying he had not done anything wrong.  He said that he started working at the Stadium on the 1st September 1998, which is 20 years now and nothing like benefit was mentioned in the letter  He stated that he and other members of staff have gone without salary for six months and after trying very hard to pay a month’s salary on Tuesday 27th November he received his sack letter on the following day. He said even when the letter had stated that he should handover all documents in his possession before or on the 5th December, 2018 he was also shocked when one Paul Damuley told him that he is the new Stadium Manager and he was the Secretary General of the Sierra Leone People Party in France he has to quit the office at once – he had no alternative but to follow his directives. On the same day the Director of Sports went further to write a letter to Paul Damuley headlined “Appointment as Stadium Manager.”  The letter stated “I would like to inform you that it has pleased me as Director of Sports to appoint you Mr.Paul Damuley as Stadium Manager of the Siaka Steven Stadium Brookfields Freetown with immediate effect from today 27th November 2018. You will officially report to me for further briefing on your appointment as Stadium Manager I wish you well in your new capacity.
