A Response to SLPP Strategist, P.K. Muana’s Self-bloated Arrogance and Empty “Bluff”

Going through Awareness Times last Thursday, June 14th, 2012, I read an article titled: “SLPP Strategists’ Frustration with Sylvia Blyden” In it, I noticed a published dialogue involving three gentlemen which caught my attention and to which I would like to respond.
For the sake of brevity, I will not trouble myself to dwell into all the exchanges that took place. I will attempt to focus on a statement uttered by one of Maada Bio’s self-conceited henchmen, Patrick K. Muana, who for reasons best known to him, thought he has sacred monopoly of the world of “un stylo”.
P.K. writes: “If only Sylvia could stop defending and promoting you APC people for 2 weeks. Kabs Kanu knows how well we have dealt with him in the past – so he is a weak opponent – all the APC writers of long pieces are weak, weak opponents for us. Let Sylvia relax for just 20 days only and see how we will handle Ernest Koroma”
Over the years, I have come to develop a huge respect for P.K. Muana because I see him as a young man who has done extremely well for himself personally and academically. I see him as a man who, were it not for his political blindfold, would have been an added asset for Sierra Leone. Therefore, it will be beneath me if I fail to highlight this respect. For that I salute him.
Quite frankly, I suspect that the same reasons I stated for holding him in high esteem might have been some of the persuading factors for Bio to have him serve as one of his strategists. Maada Bio, who is desperately searching for image repair and damage control, sees men like P. K. Muana as someone he can rely on for policy ideas and strategies. A man that he can look up to especially at a time like this when the entire nation is jolting against a Bio presidency.
However, gauging by P.K Muana’s daring tendencies towards self-bloated arrogance and empty “bluff”, it can safely be concluded that he is hurting Maada Bio more than he thinks. As a strategist, he ought to be working on re-imaging the battered image of his boss, Maada Bio the perennial killer and worry less about the other side.
The above demeaning utterance by him is precisely the reason why the Sierra Leone People’s Party finds itself wallowing in this present political predicament – ARROGANCE. For as far as my memory serves me, I have never found self-conceited arrogance and emptiness taking anyone anywhere. If anything, it takes you backwards.
In P.K. Muana’s dialogue, he obliviously engaged in making two erroneous and vicious contentions, one would think, an educated man of his stature would have avoided:
Firstly, he alleged that Dr. Sylvia Blyden is preventing them, the bogey writers, from manhandling the president and went further to entreat her to ceasefire for 20 days so that they can accomplish their mission.
Secondly, P.K. Muana’s utter contempt for people who are thought to be fiercely supporting the president, pops up when he described them as “weak” and therefore, incapable of defending the president.
I will attempt to respond to both claims but first on the issue of Sylvia Blyden’s support for the president. I see it as very condescending for him to contend that President Koroma enjoys undue favor and support from Dr. Blyden. What an insult to that poor woman’s integrity? On numerous occasions, we have witnessed Dr. Blyden’s stance against this presidency, on issues bordering on different wavelengths. You enjoyed it while it lasted. You rooted and cheered for her. Now that she sings “Hail to Ernest Koroma”, I challenged P.K. Muana and his crew to view her support as coming out from a true conviction of the heart.
Putting a time frame as to how many days she ought to or ought not to support someone she strongly believes in, exposes and ridiculed P.K Muana for who he truly is. Contrary to his skewed mentality of the freedom of the mind and opinion, not everyone supports someone for their own personal gains like P.K. Muana does. Dr. Blyden is one of those who will not give a damn about your opinion!
Secondly, as I read Muana’s utterance regarding other journalists whose support and defense for Ernest Koroma predates his presidency, I can’t help but see a man who craves for love and affection, because in his own eyes he is superior to everybody else. This state of mind leads to one serious behavior defect in him: jealousy. He envies the conviction, intelligence, reason, moral values of those that he criticizes. He knows that some of us will never drum beat for a murderer.
He regards our passion to embrace development with a jealous eye. If someone with superior features to his own is present, he gets paranoid. To this fine group of progressive journalists, I say ignore P.K. Muana and see him for what he is – narcissistic.
In my humble opinion, Muana’s arrogance shows sickness of mind and incorrect behavior. I am afraid to say that people like him, who live in a state of perpetual pride and utter ruse, dwell in a pitch dark world that is full of hate, anger and jealousy.
In the SLPP world, people like Muana and his boss, Julius Maada Bio, “borbor belle” brigadier who are sadly suffering from narcissistic disorder become neurotic on control, status, stature, and dominance. They overestimate their personal worth, contending that, as extraordinary people they deserve special treats and birthrights. They act in a grandiose, puffed-up way, expect special favors, scorn conventional rules, and feel entitled; they’re unempathetic, inconsiderate to others, exploitative, and unconstrained by objective reality.
To spew such a spiteful comment, he knew what he was asking for, and that which he wanted, he will get. He has just stirred up a hornet’s nest. We will not waste any more time on him after this publication because as far as we are concern, he is insignificant.
We will go after his boss, the murderer of babies and women, in a manner that has never been seen in the media.
The battle line has been drawn; swords are out and let the fight begin.
