One thing that is very clear about Dr. Blyden is that she speaks things as they are.
In recent time, her truth-telling crusade has made people within the government uncomfortable.
The kidnapping, detention, and trumped-up charges against Dr. Blyden is a big shock to many right-mind-thinking Sierra Leoneans — both home and abroad.
It’s on record that the sitting Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs threatened Dr. Blyden with an arrest; and also the current National Women’s Leader of the ruling party, SLPP, doubled down on the threat.
Not too long after these threats, Dr. Blyden was unfortunately kidnapped by truck loads of Police officers.
