It’s almost a years since  the Alliance Democratic Party (ADP )was formed. Since then the pressure from him has be unheard off. He has been using the weaknesses and lapses of the government to penitrate into the stronghold of the governing All Peoples Party ( APC).

It is not a secret that his intention is to revenge the actions taken by the APC against him. And this so far is yielding dividend (creating an egg slap) in the faces of the APC and it supports.

Kamarainba made his political debut in a bye election in constituency 030, this was time to meet one of the God fathers of the APC party Alhaji Ibrahim Ben Kargbo who was former minister of information and communication and now Presidential Adviser. Although Ibrahim Ben kargbo won the bye-election with 5,600 votes representing 54.8% of the valid votes, Mr Mansaray made a significant in-road into the  ruling All Peoples Party(APC ) by securing 3,894 representing 38.11%.  This was one of the biggest shocks in the APC ‘s political battle in recent times. It marked the beginning of a long battle although the party won.

 Few months later there was another battle in constituency 050,again ADP lost but taking 29% of the votes.

Arguably Mr kamaramba lost because he was not widely known in those constituencies and was thus not one of their own, but a stranger who just appeared in those constituencies to contest elections. It is highly likely that if the ADP would have raised candidates  from within the constituencies, candidates who know the people and better interact with them, the party could have won.

 In subsequent elections especially the general elections scheduled for 2018, the APC will suffer a cripple slap in many constituencies where ADP will raise a candidate that is born and bred in those communities.
