Claim

Meet the 2028 Chief Election Commissioner of the National Electoral Commission, Francis Ben Kaifala Na U da Conduct the Election 2028.

Rating Justification

The claim that Francis Ben Kaifala, the current ACC commissioner, will be the Chief Electoral Commissioner in the 2028 Sierra Leone general elections posted on one of Sierra Leone’s top blogging pages, “Born 2 Blog,” on Facebook is false.

To arrive at this conclusion, SLAJ-iVerify undertook the following steps:

Contacted the Electoral Commission of Sierra Leone (ECSL): SLAJ-iVerify reached out to Raymond George, Director of Media and Communications at ECSL. Raymond George confirmed that no new Chief Electoral Commissioner has been appointed for the 2028 Elections and dbunked the information.

Reviewing Official ECSL Sources:
SLAJ-iVerify visited the official ECSL website, https://ec.gov.sl/.

The current Chief Electoral Commissioner and Chairman, Mohamed Kenewui Konneh, is still in office, with no announcements of a new appointment.

Based on these steps, SLAJ-iVerify has concluded that the claim regarding Francis Ben Kaifala’s appointment as the Chief Electoral Commissioner for the 2028 General Elections is false.

By false, we mean: The claim is inaccurate, according to the best evidence publicly available at this time.
