Christopher Abdul Kamara, the suspended secretary general of Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA), has been sacked with immediate effect.
Kamara and the FA boss Isha Johansen, a CAF Executive Committee member were both ordered by Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) to step aside following their charges of abuse of office and public funds.
Both denied any wrongdoings and the case is ongoing.
According to the SLFA, Kamara, who was instructed by the Executive Committee following his suspension to do an official handing over note to the acting General Secretary Abdul Rahman Swarray and also release the official email password, has defied orders.
The SLFA said in a statement: “The present Executive Committee of the SLFA has relieved the General Secretary of SLFA Christopher Abdul Kamara of his duties with immediate effect for an act of Gross Insubordination and Misconduct.”
“He was instructed by the Executive Committee to do an official handing over note to the acting General Secretary Abdul Rahman Swarray and also release the official email password.
“After several verbal instructions, the Acting President, Brima Mazola Kamara gave an official ultimatum to Christopher Kamara to release the password within 72 hours but did not comply.
“Therefore, the Executive Committee is left with no option but to act in accordance with its powers within the SLFA Statutes *(Article 34(f))* and the SLFA Condition of Service for staff, The FA’s statement concluded.
However, Football’s world governing body, Fifa a few weeks ago overturned a decision by SLFA to set aside Isha Johansen and Chris Kamara from their respective roles, ruling it ‘invalid’
“We deem that the dismissals are invalid and the SLFA President and General Secretary remain in their function,” Fifa Secretary General Fatma Samoura stated in a letter.
