    President Kamara, why you didn’t give Minister McGill the constitution of UlAA to read before pledging that incompetent government will put $300,000.00 in next year’s budget for ULAA. I was happy that former Ambassador Barnes was able to educate Mr. McGill the function of government and ULAA. ULAA has been very under achieved since it was organized in 1974. Why your presidency tried to politicized this organization? From what I witnessed on Saturday night, ULAA has become an extension of CDC under your watch. I can when ULAA brought President Tolbert to his knees. I remembered those days when Charles Taylor, Blamo Nelson etc were running this powerful organization, they had Tolbert running for his money. Don’t you think this inept government is trying to buy this organization. Even the blind man can see what they are doing. They’re using the government money to promote their political goals. He knows next year is election so he’s pledging $300,000.00 to ULAA. Wake up and smell the coffee. I am aware that politics is interest. Just relax and take cool bottle and think about it. I am not associated with any of the political back home or the US. Our folks are suffering back home and for this man to come here and search among to an organization that supposed to be helping our folks back home. It’s a shame! Why did some of get an education? To be stupid?
