The National Chairman of the Peoples Movement for Democratic Change Mohamed Bangura was yesterday molested and thrown out of his party’s headquarters at Mends Street in Freetown for reportedly misbehaving while a meeting was in progress.
According to reports a cross section of executive members of the PMDC had gathered to discuss a letter admittedly written by Mohamed Bangura to the PMDC party leader Charles Margai.
The letter suggested that the PMDC party leader Charles Margai should step aside, so that other members can step up to the plate, as a result serious confrontations have ensued between the young democrats of PMDC and Mohamed Bangura.
However, drama unfolded yesterday when a cross section of the youth wing of PMDC demanded that the National Chairman Mohamed Bangura put down an empty bottle which he held in his possession inside the meeting hall.
Moments later it was reported that, insult started flying around accompanied by unprintable language. Soon the entire meeting room became chaotic and uncontrollable it was at this point it was reported that the Party Chairman was asked out and in the process he reportedly received a few unwelcome hands to the dismay of some executive members and party supporters.
A cross section of PMDC members yesterday revealed to this reporter that an investigative committee will be set up to look in to the letter and other issues raised by both Mohamed Bangura and the Youths for Democrats.
However it was also disclosed that Mohamed Bangura should resign to allow investigations in to the matter.
This reporter also contacted Mohamed Bangura for his own side of the story he said a defunct youth group of the PMDC headed by Junior Lavalie is responsible for all the chaos in the party.
He stated that it is only the National Executive Council that has the constitutional right to demand his resignation not few youths who are bent on destroying the party.
Mohamed Bangura also said that “some of these Youths that are causing the problem want to take PMDC to the SLPP clandestinely.” He argued that the PMDC party will remain independent with no alliance to either APC or SLPP.
He said “I will make a formal complaint to the National Executive Council against the youths that are embarrassing me and the party.”
He further explained that he had contributed financially to the renting of the party office at Mends Street and no one will throw him out of the office.
Mohamed Bangura also expressed regret over the chaos and confrontations that have ensued at the party office over his letter to Charles Margai.
He further disclosed to this reporter that he will be travelling to Pujehun today on PMDC matters as he expressed commitment and determination to ensure PMDC remain as an independent party to win the 2012 election.
