Soccer Anyone!!

12 Sep

Soccer is the national pastime for Malians and what better way to campaign than to sponsor a soccer tournament. Yeah’s party PACP was the official sponsor of the kickoff to the soccer tournament in Garantiguibougou. Yeah was represented by the PACP Secretary General Fomba. While this might be a strange setting to talk about politics, it is an opportune setting to target a certain voting group.

The event was attended by 1000s of people and there was an opportunity for Fomba to spread the message of the party and what Yeah hopes to accomplish when in office. The event was attended mainly by the youth. This is Yeah’s main focus as far as the voting constituents go. And who better to benefit if Yeah is elected. Change needs to happen on the forefronts of education, employment, health care and the economy.

Let’s just say this was a hit and something I wish all Yeah’s supporters abroad and at home could have made it to this wonderful event.

    I met Yeah last night at a meeting at Jon White’s house. What a great man! I am very impressed with his willingness to serve the people of Mali and to do the right thing for the right reason and to teach others to do the same. Yea for Yeah!
