One of Sierra Leone’s icons in the field of sports, Bai Kabia, may take over as the new director of sports to replace Sadiu Mansaray who has served in the ministry for about 35 years.
Sports pundits alleged that since Sadiu Mansaray took over the directorship the Sports Council had been in serious mess in terms of administration.
Many a time the director of sports is being accused of favouring some sporting disciplines as against others.
“The present impasse in the Athletics Association is the handiwork of Sadiu Mansaray who has repeatedly shown that he cannot solve the present problems of that association as he has taken sides in the matter,” opined one young athlete yesterday at the National Stadium.
Meanwhile, Bai Kabia who may take over as director of sports served as team manager of Leone Stars for several years and played for the national team in the 1960s to 1970s and has a lot of experience in administrative matters.
