Former Director General of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) Dr Kandeh K. Yumkella has called on Sierra Leoneans, especially members of the SLPP to emulate the virtues of the founding fathers of the party by rejecting politics of tribalism, abuse, mud-slinging and vindictiveness.


“Rather endeavour to mould your political philosophy and behaviour on the ideals and practices of the founding fathers of the party”, he appealed at the different quarters around the country.

Dr Kandek described the founding father of the party people with peace and sanity and with no prejudice, no bigotry and did not believe in stereotype, and with genuine integrity.

He recalled the crucial role the founding fathers played in uniting the party, a role he said, deserved to be hailed and praised.

The good relationship that has been exiting within the party are largely due to the founding fathers and this is one of the reasons, “ I have a great regard and admiration for them even though they are not here with us today”.

He called for an immediate stop to the use of macho men by some politicians, describing it as an insult to democracy.


Dr. Kandeh  said the use of macho was contrary to the whole ideal of democracy.
