I have been made aware of an excerpt of a recorded conversation making rounds on social media in which some of my words have been presented out of context.
I want to categorically state that the inferred tribalism in the edited audio does not represent my values, actions nor my track record. I would like to apologise to anyone who has been offended by these hurtful and inaccurate inferences.
Over the past 3 years I have worked with all Freetonians irrespective of gender, tribe or religion within and outside of Freetown City Council.
I place a premium on diversity and inclusion and I want to assure you all that I have and I will continue to work in all of our interests.
Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr OBE
