WHO IS IT TO QUESTION HIS DUE PROCESS

Each and every one of us, I mean believers of our Christian faith believe that God’s time is the best and that He acts and moves not only in an inexplicable way but at His own appointed time and space. The war in Sierra Leone has ended for almost eight years yet we are begining to see answers to our prayers; we prayed for better or improved standard of living, education, good health for the war-affected amputees and judgement on those that cause their afflictions. Today January 11th 2010, the key indictee-Charles G. Taylor for the war crimes committed against the thousands of children, women and men in Sierra Leone continue his testimony at the Hague. The acting Prosecutor of the special court in Sierra Leone commented on the length of time and evidence remaining to conclude the trail. Acting Prosecutor– Joseph Fitzgerald Kamara told the press that the end date for the trial is imminent.

According to a local newspaper in Kenema town–Southern part of Sierra Leone (see photo above) amputees are standing in line to witness the launching of the War Victims Trust Fund.
Saffa Moriba reports:

The Government of Sierra Leone Reparations program in collaboration with the National Commission for Social Action (NaCSA) has launched the War Victims Trust Fund on Saturday December 5th 2009 at the Hoy Trinity Parish hall along Blama Road in Kenema City with the theme:  Be a proud and sympathetic contributor. Help create a bright and secure future for our war-affected population.
Speaking at the ceremony the chairman of the Amputees and War Wounded Association Kenema district Dominic Brima said God destines their plight and he therefore called on his colleagues to accept their status at all time. Adding there is no compensation for their plight. He thanked the government of Sierra Leone, NaCSA and other International humanitarian organizations for their assistance to the war victims in the past and present times.  He also thanked the Paramount Chief of Nongowa Chiefdom PC Amara Bonya Vangahun for providing land for the war victim in his Chiefdom that is now hosting over 50 houses that was build by Norwegian Refugee Council.  He says about 571 houses have been build nationwide for war affected persons.  He appealed to all Sierra Leoneans working in the nation to deduct some portion of their salary for a month for the Trust Fund adding it will go a long way in improving on their status.
In his speech, the Regional NaCSA boss Moses Gboma said the symbolic reparation exercise will benefit every part of the nation, adding NaCSA has played a role in achieving durable peace gearing towards support for war victims.  He revealed that the War Victims Fund is a government’s baby that hopes to heal the wounds of badly affected war victims. He said the account for the Trust Fund is now open to the public at the Rokel Commercial Bank. .
He also disclosed that the President Dr. Earnest Bai Koroma is launching a similar War Victims Fund in Freetown.
In his contribution, the Paramount Chief of Nongowa Chiefdom PC Amara Bonya Vangahun said as a traditional ruler they are mother and father for everybody and therefore he will continue to give his fullest support. He appealed to all and sundry not to use any provocative words against the victims of the war as no one is above the time of becoming a disabled person.  He appealed to well meaning Sierra Leoneans to write projects on behalf of the war wounded as part of the Trust Fund. 
The ceremony was chaired by the Deputy Director of Education East John Amara Swaray who earlier in his opening statement described every Sierra Leonean as a war victim because everybody suffered in one way or the other but the degree at which people suffered must be considered greatly.
Mr. F.M.Jibba formally launched the Trust Fund from the provincial administration who represented the Resident Minister East Hon. William Juana Smith.
