Retired Capt. Kenneth Tarawalie former 2007 parliamentary candidate for constituency 71 comprising of Badja, Komboya and Babgbe Chiefdom accused the APC Party Chairman in the Bo District Sheik Sillah of contravening the party constitution.

Similar accusation was levied by the Bo District Chairman Bailer Musa Koroma and other party stalwarts confirmed the allegation of embezzlement and contravention of the party constitution and called for an immediate petitioning of the Bo District Chairman.
