Ever since the former Minister of Defense who is now the Chief Executive Office of the National Ebola Response Center, Palo Conteh was elected President of the Sierra Leone Athletics Association (SLAA) there has been mudslinging between the Minister of Sport, Paul Kamara and Palo Conteh.
Paul Kamara has earlier warned Palo Conteh to go through the legal process if he wants to be President of Athletics Association but Palo Conteh went ahead with the controversial process which has both been condemned by National Olympic Committee and the Sport Council to become President of SLAA.
After been controversially elected, the NERC Boss said that nobody will stand on his way as he is on the forward match to transform athletics as a former athlete.
He said not even the Minister will stop him as only the President will be the one that will stop him, describing himself as an “Elephant”
Palo Conteh even insinuated that the Minister of Sports Paul Kamara will be sacked by the President and replaced with his Deputy, Alsankoh Conteh
Paul Kamara on the other side called himself a “Lion” who will show the former soldier that his violence tendency is for himself.
He has closed down the office of the Sierra Leone Athletics Association at the National Stadium and said that he did not recognize Palo Conteh’s executive.
