APRC’s RC denies involvement in Busumbala political upheaval

Monday, February 12, 2018

The APRC’s regional chairman for West Coast Region, Ebrima Solo Marreh, has vehemently refuted allegations that qualified him as playing significant role in the last political upheaval that gripped Busumbala in January 2018.

He said the allegations that have been on the rumour mill are unfounded and baseless.

Mr. Marreh said he had neither instructed anybody to attack nor to destroy any property or compound.

He was reacting in an exclusive interview with our reporter after allegations that he was part of the people who were pointing at compounds where party supporters of APRC should attack and destroyed. Mr. Marreh, however, described the allegations as false and smearing.

 According to him, he was never part of the delegation and did not receive them when they were coming back. He said he was represented by his assistant as he was engaged with other matters.

Mr. Marreh also said he only came to know about the matter after 9 p.m. of the very day of the incident. “I didn’t go anywhere, until around 9 p.m. when I went to buy milk in Brikama, and upon my return, I was told that there was a big problem at Busumbala.”

“And to my surprise, the following morning I heard that they were coming here to attack and burn my house.”

Mr. Marreh described himself as a good citizen, saying he equally loves Busumbala where he resides.
