Speaking to this medium, Mr. Kamara encouraged youths not to engage in any violent activities that would have the potential to undermine the peace and tranquility which the country is enjoying ahead of March 2018 national elections.
He denounced violence in no uncertain terms, saying that many of the cases they receive at the Connaught Hospital Mortuary have to do with violence or clique activities resulting in stabbing and death.
Mr. Kamara recalled the recent incident at Murray Town in Freetown, when a spouse stabbed her lover boy to death, noting that most of the violent activities among the youths are drug-abused as most of them are hooked to harmful drugs like Tramadol and marijuana.
He therefore encouraged young people to engage in productive activities that will benefit themselves and the country instead of engaging in violent activities that will land them in trouble as they are future leaders.
He pointed out that violence cannot take young people anywhere but to come into conflict with the law which he said has no excuse for defaulter.
In another development, the Coroner Technician has warned travelers to always carry their Identification cards with them.
Mr. Kamara therefore appealed to citizens and non-citizens to always travel with their identification documents so that they can easily be identified by their relatives and close friends.
The CEO on behalf of colleague volunteers appealed to the Government, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and humanitarian organizations to empower the Connaught Hospital Mortuary Department.
The dedicated CEO expressed belief that the dead should be given its last respect through dignified burial. “It is the duty of every mankind to offer service to the dead because it is the final journey of every mankind,” he averred.
Mr. Kamara reiterated that the failure of the public to identify their loved ones in time has resulted to the decomposition of several corpses on several occasions thereby posing serious health hazards to both mortuary attendants and visitors.
