Behind the Scenes with Lans Omar - April 27, 2024.

Hello everyone!

From Winnipeg, Canada, respect to all my fam, fans, and friends!

The weekend vibes are here – SALNAM releases the first quarterly financial report of 2024, Sierra Leone’s 63rd Independence celebrations today, the blackout syndrome in Sierra Leone, Sierra Leone’s Minister of Energy in the question of the day, plus lots more. You're about to read another neck-breaking edition of “Behind the Scenes". This column is the radical thoughts of one guy called Lans Omar aka the “Golden Child” - born and raised in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Let's do this: The Sierra Leone Nationals Association of Manitoba (SALNAM) has released the first quarterly financial report of 2024. Announced on April 20, 2024, the organization presented a tabulated financial report with a current total account value of $9,055.24 as of March 31, 2024. Kudus to President Mohamed Moe Koroma and the entire executive members. The report presented a detailed account of all the income and expenditure of the organization from September 30, 2023 to March 31, 2024. This current administration of SALNAM inherited just $8.56 from the past executive, and now sitting at $9,055.24. Again, respect to the President Mohamed Moe Koroma and the entire executive.

Switching gears: Sierra Leone is celebrating her 63rd Independence today - April 27th, 2024. First of all, celebrating what? Like seriously? Celebrating hunger & starvation? Celebrating blackout? Celebrating no running water in the country? Celebration no public transportation? Celebration no healthcare? Oona funny. Anyways, I’m not going to waste my time on this at all. If you’ve been following me for the past 25yrs from Concord Times right to the launching of social medias, I’ve been opposing every single sitting government in Sierra Leone for recklessly mishandling the running of the government.

The last time I checked, Sierra Leone is comfortably sitting amongst the poorest countries in the world with a GDP per capita of only 475.68 (US dollars). Do I hear a cat meow? Or a snake rattle? Like I said I don’t have time to waste on this issue; if you want Sierra Leone to be a better place – let’s do these two things fast: Get SLPP and APC off the political scene and recolonize Sierra Leone. I’ve been preaching of recolonizing Sierra Leone for the past 25yrs but no one’s even paying attention. Oona go learn.

Next stop: The blackout syndrome in Sierra Leone, really? Anyways, I’m not even going to wail on this topic. On God, if I pen a single paragraph on this issue, every living Sierra Leonean on earth would hate my guts. No shame at all – a floating ship from another country suppling an entire city electricity. I’m out of here!

Question: Why did the Sierra Leone’s Minister of Energy, Alhaji Ibrahim Kanja Sesay, tender his resignation? Why though?

Finally: Again, the weekend is here! Inasmuch as I don’t celebrate Sierra Leone Independence, I’ll be at the Sierra Leone independence dinner and dance today at the Jamaican Hall in Winnipeg, Canada. I’ll be there for the show and just to show-face, period.

Fellas, again, I always say this – if you plan to have some good time and get a drink, you know the rules, right? If you’re drinking, don’t drive – if you’re driving, don’t drink. Have a great weekend! Lonta.

I'm out of here!

Cheers fellas!

The Golden Child.
