The national secretariat of the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ) wishes to inform its members and the general public that it has received and accepted, with a heavy heart, the resignations from the executive of the National Public Affairs Secretary, Mr. Sayoh Kekura Kamara, and the Vice Chairman of SLAJ Southern region, Melvin Rogers. Both men have resigned to pursue their political career at the national level.
While Mr. Kamara is aspiring to secure a party symbol to contest for a parliamentary seat in his native Koinadugu district, Mr. Rogers is pursuing the same in Pujehun.
"The two men have given meritorious services to the Association for four years on a voluntary basis and they acquitted themselves extremely well," says SLAJ President, Umaru Fofana. He wishes both men good luck in their endeavours and hopes they will "further strive to make Sierra Leone a better place for our and future generations".
On behalf of the association, the National Secretariat wishes our former executive colleagues and all journalists moving into the political landscape of our beloved country the very best of luck.
