One of Sierra Leone’s finest female journalists and women’s and children’s rights advocate, Mamadi Ngobeh Kamara, on Thursday 30th May, 2019 successfully sailed through Parliament to become the new Deputy Minister of Information and Communication.
In the Well of Parliament, Members of Parliament approved Mamadi Ngobeh Kamara and other presidential nominees were approved by Parliament after they were appointed by President Julius Maada Bio to serve in various public capacities.
The nominees before their approval went through stiff scrutiny by the Parliamentary Committee on Appointment and the Public Service.
Presenting the nominees for approval, the Leader of Government Business in Parliament, Hon. Sidi Mohamed Tunis, said they relied on specific documents provided by the nominees, coupled with other information obtained from the general public, to conduct the hearings.
He assured the House that he has no doubt that the nominees would perform well in their respective capacities, adding that the nominees were all capable and that he has no doubt that they will serve the different parastatals they were approved to serve.
Mamadi Ngobeh Kamara is a prolific administrator who has worked in top positions as manager, director and other positions. She would no doubt bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Ministry of Information and Communication and will no doubt be of exceptional assistance to her boss Mohamed Rado Swarray.
