He revealed that he was heading to Makeni, the capital of the north, to attend the funeral ceremony of a prominent traditional ruler in that part of the country, the late Masayelli N’tham when the accident occurred. His jeep collided with a commercial vehicle.
Honourable Joseph Kamara is highly respected in and out of Sierra Leone. He has won several awards in Sierra Leone, Liberia and other parts of the world.
Here is a recent message from the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice:
Fellow Sierra Leoneans and friends all. Let me on behalf of my wife and family express my profound thanks and appreciation for the out pouring commiserations in respect of the road accident encountered on Sunday. The experience was harrowing but the hand of God was at work.
I wish to thank His Excellency and family, the Vice President, Cabinet Colleagues, Members of the APC Family, Leaders of the Opposition and all who took time and made efforts to visit and empathize with me at the hospital.
Friends, join me to celebrate the saving grace of God and His goodness. And to the unfortunate ones who suffered injuries, I wish them speedy recovery.
The lessons learnt nevertheless are the need to continue to build and strengthen our health care delivery systems. As new evidence has shown a close relationship in health and positive growth in other development indicia. What a coincidence. A few days back the theme of my keynote speech for the Liberian Independence Awards (Golden Image Award) was on health delivery systems in the sub region.
I am pleased to report that I am well and fully recovered and the victory is ours. God bless us all. God bless Sierra Leone.
Joseph Fitzgerald Kamara
Attorney General and Minister of Justice.
