Since he came back from the UK to start practicing medicine in the early 70’s after specialization he has always been very close to his people especially at Tonko Limba Chiefdom in the Kambia District, Northern Sierra Leone where he made it mandatory to be going with his entire family every December to provide low cost medical services in the hospital now located at Karuseri Road in Kamasasa village, indigenes of Tonkoh Limba and adjacent chiefdoms were given the opportunity to provide their cattle when there is no cash at hand (barter system).

As time progresses and as human wants becomes insatiable, the black gem of Tonkoh Limba Chiefdom Dr. T.

Christian Alusine Kamara-Taylor who was the Parliamentary representative for Tonkoh Limba Chiefdom at the time.

His people Dr. Thomas Kahota Kargbo called upon him and expressed satisfaction about his work over the years especially in providing them low cost medical services, he was asked to represent them in Parliament to articulate issues bothering them. A difficult decision he took at that time to campaign. His people where behind him cap in hand to make sure he represent them in the House of Parliament as a son of the soil. The people of Tonkoh Limba Chiefdom put together lot of songs in Limba, the author of this piece a nephew of the Late Dr. T K Kargbo was privy to some of these songs when he was in early primary school in 1986, prominent among these songs that he Thomas Pa Alie Babadie remembered were:

“T .K. K. x 3 we are calling on you during voting, don’t be angry over your opponent we will vote for you.

 Who so ever is for you let the person go to Parliament that’s where your sit is.

So let us go and see him he is already in Parliament and has worked for us”.

The Doctor of Kamasasa

In Kamasasa we have a Doctor X 2.

The Doctor that is dark and tall and has medicine in his hands, willing to give to us at any time when the need arise.

He is ours, the others know.

Please let nobody goes to farm to vote for Doctor Kargbo our diamond.
