Lawyers of Dr. Samura Mathew Wilson Kamara who had earlier asked the Court to throw the Case out without them needing to do a Defense because they say the Prosecution by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has not made any case against Dr. Samura Kamara.
The APC-USA Branch said: “Dr Samura Kamara’s visit to the Carter Center was part of his strategic engagements to share his vision and his resolve to lead Sierra Leone on sound democratic principles.
The Branch said Dr. Samura Kamara left the US on Friday night after engaging US Congressional Leaders, senators, head of human rights organisations, democratic institutional leaders, representatives at the Carter Center, and other Sierra Leoneans living in America in a town hall meeting.
While in the United States, Dr. Samura Kamara met with Sierra Leoneans in the Diaspora in a town hall meeting in Maryland. He assured them of a thriving socio-economic political environment under his leadership.”
The Branch said Dr. Samura Kamara further engaged with Sierra Leoneans in the States, telling them how his emergence as President of Sierra Leone would help in solving the problems that have bedeviled the country’s economic development.
“At the town hall meeting, Dr. Samura Kamara presented his vision for Sierra Leone to country men and women living in the States. He told his audience that politics should transcend partisanship and be devoid of tribal and religious attachments”.
Dr. Samura Kamara said: “As President of Sierra Leone, my top priority would remain the nation’s security and unity because, without security, no one can accomplish anything. Without peace among the populace, there can be no significant advancement.
“I have seen youths who were of productive age misusing their skills due to a lack of interest and direction. My campaign team and I have observed an apparent unanimity of abandonment resulting from governmental failure across the country. I saw poverty everywhere, but I also saw untapped talent, improperly used energy, vast arable land and nation’s future diamonds and other minerals. I am thrilled by what I saw across the country in the people’s zeal for something different; people who are suffering but are hopeful about tomorrow”
Dr. Samura Kamara arrived home with others, including; APC’s Deputy Chairman, Ambassador Alhaji Osman Foday Yansaneh, former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Hon. Frankly Bai Kargbo, former Anti Corruption Commissioner, Ady Macauley, and his assistants.
