Posted by RCG-SL on December 8, 2014 at 5:35 AM

The father of the man who escaped traditional wrath after rescuing his younger sister from the hands of Sowes in Mafofoneh Village, Kambia District, is still grieving his loss amidst persistent demands by the elders of the community that his son must answer to the sacrilege he committed.

Muctarr Kabba was informed by some of his family members that his younger sister has been captured and confined in a location awaiting initiation into the Bondo society, a secret female society that carries female genital mutilation.

“I have not seen him since he escaped from their hands,” said a frustrated Pa Alie Kabba.

It was in 2011, according to sources, when Muctarr left Freetown to visit his family in Kambia when he was told that 17 girls will soon be initiated and among them was his younger sister.

Sources said at hearing the news he rushed into the sacred bush and took away his sister.

His father is frustrated the life of his son is in danger and though he has tried all he could to appease the elders; the societal members are still looking for him.
