Sierra Leone traditional healer union president beaten to a coma
Reports at our disposal indicate that rebellious members of the Sierra Leone Indigenous Traditional Healers Union (SLITHU) attacked and beat up the union’s president to comma over the weekend.
In a letter of complaint dated 10th January 2013 addressed to the Minister of Internal Affairs and various Government stakeholders, signed by the National Chairman of the said union Mr. M.A. Kamara, the president of SLITHU Dr. Sulaiman Kabba suffered a gruesome encounter from aggrieved members of the union and was beaten to comma in his residence in the east of Freetown.
According to the letter of complaint, the president of the union is reportedly in a precarious condition and he is presently hospitalized in an unidentified Medicare.
M A Kamara further disclosed that his president Alhaji Dr. Sulaiman Kabba was attacked with sticks and other lethal objects and he suffered a series of wounds all over his body.
Although the letter did not mentioned the cause of the attack on the president of the union, it was stated that other loyal members of the union could have staged a revenge in like manner but these plans were later foiled for fear that a revenge will be “very bloody.”
The National Chairman furthered that the attack on the union’s president is an utter violation and abuse of his Human Rights and while the union members await the outcome of police investigations and that of the complaint to the Internal Affairs Ministry, members of SLITHU are thinking of staging a nationwide demonstration in expression of their resentment.
However rumors are that Dr. Kabba has been clinging onto power against the will of other members of the union, but we shall bring to you the outcome of the complaint and investigation in due course…
