Sierra Leone opposition leader, Dr. Samura Kamara, has taken to Twitter to express his concerns about recent discussions surrounding a tripartite investment relationship involving the government, ARISE, and KINGHO. Dr. Kamara, an experienced figure in national economic management and nation-building, urged caution in handling these matters.
In a tweet, Dr. Kamara emphasized the need to refrain from making public statements about the difficulties in this relationship until it is resolved in an orderly manner.
“I listened with keen interest, as an experienced Sierra Leonean in national economic management and nation building, to recent broadcasts by very senior government officials relative to a tripartite investment relationship between government, ARISE and KINGHO. I would want to caution that whatever difficulties there are bordering on this relationship, we desist from going public until the relationship is orderly mended. It is not impossible. Let us urge ourselves to handle the matter thoughtfully to prevent potential state embarrassment. Investor appetite for Sierra Leone is still lukewarm. It is strongly advisable to bring both companies to the table for resolution and avert any subsequent legal entanglements”
The opposition leader’s comments come amidst ongoing discussions and negotiations related to investment partnerships, raising concerns about transparency and potential challenges that may arise during the process.
As these discussions continue, it remains to be seen how the government and relevant parties will address the concerns and cautions voiced by Dr. Samura Kamara. The development of this tripartite investment relationship is of significant interest to Sierra Leone’s economic development and stability.
