Unsettled and jittery the presidential nominee for the Ministry of Marine Resources, Dr Moisia Kapu, took the interviewee seat yesterday in front of the Appointments Committee in parliament only to be sent out after few minutes of meeting the panelists.
Dr Moisia Kapu, who was an appointee from the People’s Movement for Democratic Change (PMDC), was sent out because it was observed by the Hon. Dr Brima Kamanda of the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) that the curriculum vita of the proposed Minster was inadequate.
Dr Kamanda observed that the C.V of the nominee did not even contain the nominee’s date of birth, schools attended and no dates of his previous assignments taken by the nominee.
He also observed that the nominee stated in his CV that he had published 30 journals but did not specify or even state the topics of those journals.
The chairman for the Parliamentary Committee on Appointments, Hon Edward Turay, decided that the nominated minister should go out and get his CV in a proper order with all the relevant details and submit it to the committee which would call him back at a latter date.
The already nervy nominee argued that what he gave the committee was not his comprehensive C.V but a resume of it. As the committee wanted a comprehensive CV he was still asked to step down and leave the room. Hon Edward Turay was quick to allay the fears of Dr Kapu, he told him that his stepping down did not affect his nomination as the Minister of Marine Resources was still on course as they would wait to interview him when he would have re-arranged his documents.
Hon Eddie Turay further cautioned the nominee that, “it is for good record purposes that we want you to get your documents right, so if anyone comes in to the library in parliament they will know what happened and who were interviewed.”
