Bad Culture Exiles Mohamed Sajor…
Culture, as observed in this part of the world (West Africa) has been visiting homes of the ordinary, inflicting occulted harm to up and coming generations.
Notably, traditional leaders are in the habit of forcing the youths into becoming deep rooted members of bad cultural practices that are harmful and sometimes killable.
The case of Mohamed Sajor Sesay (in photo), whose father Pa. Mohamed Sesay, one time chief of Bama Konta, identified hundreds of bad doctrines imposed on the youths of tomorrow.
Investigations carried out reveal how Mohamed Sajor was made to escape from his home town in Kenema because of persistent threats from village heads and traditional leaders that want him to take over the chieftaincy of his late father.
Findings indicate that the elders want Mohamed Sajor initiated into the traditional Poro Society before crowned as successor to the throne of his late father Pa. Mohamed Sesay.
An attempt by Mohamed Sajor to deny the elders of their demands resulted into his arrest in 2009.
As luck could have it, he escaped from the hands of the elders and moved to a destination unknown, but finally made his way out sometime in March of 2009, after receiving persistent threats from village elders.
It could be recalled that Mohamed’s father died in 1993 at a time he (Mohamed) was a little boy.
In 2009, he was compelled to take the oath of office as heir to the throne of his late father as Chief of the village.
He was also ordered to go through initiation in the Poro Society which he refused.
His refusal, it is revealed, however resulted into him being troubled by harmful traditional elders.
Sources say that village elders have vouched to harm Mohamed wherever they see him.
That he is a betrayal and has gone against their tradition; a thing they say nobody goes against and walk free.
It is reported that Mohamed has fled to a neighbouring country for his life.
Though his whereabouts is unknown, unconfirmed information says that he has sought refuge in a country far from his home Sierra Leone.
