Reprisal … Gay’s life at stake

Jamal Fasuluku narrowly escaped death at the hands of traditional ‘Poro’ Society members and his whereabouts is still shrouded in mystery.  A friend of Jamal lamented his buddy’s demise to our Eastern province correspondent, stating that Jamal who was nineteen years at the time, was forced to be initiated into the traditional cult in place of his deceased father Sahr Fasuluku who they say was the ‘Yamba,’ that is the head of the secret society. 

As tradition demands, when the Yamba passes away, his position is bequeathed to his son.  Jamal was not in for it because of his religious beliefs. I

n his hidings in Kono, eastern province of Sierra Leone, he became hooked by a European visitor to Sierra Leone called John Courtwright.  John Courtwright was a gay and because of his predicament Jamal had the only alternative of becoming a gay too.  News of Jamal’s conversion to gay practice spread in the township like wildfire in the harmattan wind. He was forced to flee together with John Courtwright to an unknown destination.

The Sierra Leonean culture is very much averse to gayism.  Traditional elders and irate youths stormed Jamal’s residence in a desperate search for him.  He could not be found so they ransacked his premises, damaged his furniture, and broke the windows in their desperation.

Threats to kill Jamal loom but he is nowhere to be found.
