The three appeal court Judges included; Justice Reginald Fynn, Justice Alusine Sesay and Justice Allan Halloway, and when the matter was decided by the court a month ago, the aforementioned appeal court Judges slammed an interlocutory injunction, on the Sierra Leone Peoples Party from holding it planned national delegate conference, which was supposed to take place in the eastern district down of Kenema in April 2017.

The said matter was adjourned to today Friday 28 April 2017, but for certain judicial and legal arraignments, the African Young Voices Newspaper learnt that the matter has now been pushed for hearing to Tuesday 2 May 2017, before the above mentioned appeal court judges.

According to court records, the plaintiff appellant, Alusine Bangura, Victor Sheriff and barrister Alhaji Mustapha Kamara to name a few, sought court action against the then led Dr Prince Harding led executive of the Sierra Leone Peoples Party , who were the defendants now defendants respondents, on the grounds that the zonal , sectional , constituency, district, meaning the internal elections of the party were marred with irregularities and were conducted against the democratic tenets of the party ,  and further abrogate core provisions of the party amended constitution.

On the other hand, the then defendants now defendants respondents, were Dr. Abbas Bundu, Alie Badara, Manso Dumbuya to name a few, rebuked that the zonal, sectional, constituency , district and executive elections of the party,  were conducted within the democratic framework of the party, consonance with the party amended constitution.

At the end of the entire proceedings, judgment was delivered by Justice Babatunde Edwards in which, neither the now applicant appellants or the defendants respondents won the case, and few days later the two splinter groups within the party, extended olive branch to each other, and even staged a peace march in main streets of Freetown, demonstrating solidarity, readiness and soberness to reorganize and put in place concrete measures, aimed at putting the party on a sound footing.

Ironically, a month after the peace march, counsel representing the Plaintiff appellant, filed an appeal against the said judgment of Justice Babatunde Edwards, on the grounds that the thirty nine constituencies, including elections in some districts and executive elections should be re-run, and that their motion including other supplemental affidavits in support of their case, were not justly treated by the court.
