Prisoner of the Week: Chicagoan, Alie Kabba, denied bail in Sierra Leone

Ali Kabba, former executive director of the Chicago-based United Africa Organization, is currently imprisoned in Sierra Leone. Kabba is seeking to run for President in the country. Arrested on charges of bigamy in early December, Kabba has been an outspoken critic of the current government. His campaign declares the charges false. Yesterday, after a court appearance, he was denied bail. We’ll talk about the charges against Kabba with Kobe William, Chicagoland regional campaign manager for Alie Kabba.
