Two members of the Motor Drivers and General Transport Workers’ Union from Freetown have visited their counterparts in Kenema city.
Alpha Turay, the leader of the delegation, told the press that they were in Kenema to meet with the four committee members who had been elected to man the affairs of the union and to also put mechanisms in place to ensure the committee was able to raise funds for the forthcoming drivers’ union elections.
Mr Turay disclosed that David Taylor and Brima Kamara still remained in their positions because they had to give account on the union’s activities during their reign after the election.
Mr Conteh, the vice chairman, said the four committee members now had the legitimate mandate to oversee the union’s operations in Kenema and its environs until after the election.
He said Chief Brima Juana had also been appointed to coordinate between the outgone executive and the four-committee members in the city.
Chief Brima Juana appealed to all union members to comply with the committee members for a peaceful transition.
The visiting team also commended the regional police commissioner, Elizabeth Turay, and her team and other stakeholders in that city for maintaining peace within the drivers’ union.
