ANOTHER UNITED STATE AMBASSADOR ATTACKED VERBALLY IN SIERRA LEONE BY A PARTY LEADER.


US AMBASSADOR MICHEAL OWEN
       The Presidential candidate for the United Democratic movement(UDM) Mohamed Bangura,in a press conference verbally attacked the United States Ambassador Micheal S. Owen as "reckless and undiplomatic".This furor from the UDM stems after the United States Ambassador in an interview on 98.1 radio suggested a run-off is possible in the November elections in Sierra Leone.
       The UDM  leader in his press conference asked Ambassador Owen to apologise to the Sierra Leone people for making a statement which the UDM consider as inciting with a potential to create "serious violence"if  the National Electoral Commission (NEC) announce one of the political parties an outright winner of the elections after the first polls,he described the Ambassador as "reckless,undiplomatic and unprofessional" according to media in Sierra Leone.
        Mohamed Bangura of UDM said the Ambassador "unlawfully interfered into Sierra Leone's ongoing electoral process on that interview he did and predicted a possible run-off.UDM has vowed to write a formal complaint to the United States in protest of Ambassador Owen,and they are also calling the Koroma APC government to reprimand the ambassador for crossing his diplomatic limit and inciting possible violence in the post elections period in the words of Mr.Bangura and UDM.The party also promised if the Ambassador failed to apologise they will hold public and massive protest marches calling the United States to withdraw Ambassador Owens from Sierra Leone.
