Popular Journalist Goes NGC


Controversial Muslim cleric cum journalists, Sheikh Kallay has disclosed recently why he decided to venture into politics and his trust in the newly registered National Grand Coalition (NGC) party.

Speaking to journalists in a special interview at the weekend, Sheik Kallay stated that he is a trained and qualified Muslim scholar and journalist with long standing experience in Sierra Leone politics.

He lamented that Muslims are being politically marginalised and that some of his colleagues sometimes negate from their responsibilities as a result of the unfriendly political atmosphere. He said, he strongly believes the current situation will improve when Godly people take the centre-stage in national politics.

Sheik Kallay went on to state that his new political ambition has received enormous appreciation from the RSLAF, SLP, politicians a vast majority who, he said, are strongly behind him.

He disclosed that he would be contesting in the newly created Falaba district where, he said, he commands love and respect among the people.

Being a plain-preacher, Sheikh Kallay emphasised that he joined the NGC where he believes his voice would be heard, adding that he would tell the leadership in his face about the things that he believes are going wrong in the party and provide advice as and when necessary.

He argued that unlike other parties, the NGC has an agenda for change, growth and prosperity of this nation and therefore entreated other Muslim cleric to join the country political landscape to make meaningful changes that would address misplaced priorities.
