School girl shot during unrest released from hospital

Mariatu Nas Kandrie, a student of Junior Secondary School III of the Municipal Secondary School at Kissy, who was shot on Wednesday, November 13 during a recent fracas between pupils and the Police, was yesterday reportedly discharged by Medical Doctors of the Emergency Hospital.

According to Mariatu, ever since she was shot nobody from the Government of Sierra Leone or the Executive Management Board (EMB) of the Sierra Leone Police (SLP) called or paid her a visit in the hospital.

She added that she will never forget what happened to her as she was not part of the Guard Street riot between the pupils of the Ansarul Muslim Secondary School and the traders.  She said she was shot right in her home at the Ferry Junction Peace Market.

“The pain that I am going through is enormous and it has made me to stop going to school since last Wednesday,” she lamented.

She said if she had died it would have been a great loss to her parents.

Her mother, Madam Fatmata Kabia, in tears told Sierra Express Media that she had to spend about Le600,000 at the Yangadie Memorial Hospital, Jenneh-Wright Road, Up-gun Roundabout, to remove the bullet from her daughter’s thigh.

She also explained that she had to spend more money for her daughter to be properly examined and treated at the Emergency Hospital at Goderich.
