Ambassador at Large for the People’s Movement for Democratic Change (PMDC), Dauda Tombo Bangura, together with some members will be lunching the Australian Chapter of the party on Saturday in that country.
The chapter has already attracted hundreds of Sierra Leoneans who are bent on putting their money where their mouths are.
Honourable Tombo Bangura, who will be the guest of honour in what he called “this history-making ceremony”, stated that his mission was to sensitize Sierra Leoneans in Australia to rally resources round the
PMDC to severe the “undue partnership” between corruption and poverty in Sierra Leone.
He noted that, “Corruption is our greatest enemy. Corruption and poverty have united in Sierra Leone in an undue partnership. Wherever there is corruption, there is poverty—they have become inseparable in a parasitic relationship in which corruption is the only benefactor that let go only when poverty dies. That is why we must kill poverty to ensure that
corruption has no host to suck dry. We must change that culture of dependency that breeds corruption to fulfill our lifetime dreams: But only if we pull our resources together round the PMDC.”
According to the interim chairlady, Hawa Mansaray, “We are going to raise lots of money to support the ‘Positive Change’ campaign to win the elections on August 11, 2007.”
