Viral press statement on “regime change” not from National Election Watch

A press statement has gone viral on social media, supposedly coming from the National Election Watch (NEW), a renowned Civil Society Organization (CSO) in Sierra Leone. Part of the statement’s content reads “Re: Affirming Commitment to Regime Change Arrangement and Questioning ECSL Credibility”.

DUBAWA contacted the organisation’s chairperson via telephone to comment on the alleged press statement, which carries the organisation’s letterhead, signed and stamped by the chairperson. 

Madam Marcella Samba-Sesay, Chairperson for NEW, told DUBAWA the viral statement is “fake.”
