Man, 55, Dies from Poro Master’s ‘Flogging’

first_imgAnother Christian conscripted in Gipo TownA man believed to be 55 years of age has died from flogging on alleged order of a Poro master in Fleeding Town in Nimba County.According to a family member, Shagasha Nyan was arrested by the Poro “devil” for reportedly beating on his wife, and taken into the Poro bush, where he was reportedly beaten severely and released, but died upon arrival at the Ganta United Methodist Hospital.His sister, Ameka Baby Bleh, while in tears told a local radio station on Thursday, August 23, that her brother and his wife were making palaver by insulting one another when the school principal assigned in the town, identified as Alvin Poquee, took his complaint to the Poro master.The Poro master, according to the report, immediately ordered men to drag Nyan into the bush where he was reportedly flogged severely to the extent that his one of his teeth was broken. Nyan sustained injuries in parts of his body, resulting to profuse bleeding after which he was set free.Upon his release, Nyan was taken to the Comprehensive Health Center in Saclepea, where doctors there subsequently transferred him to Ganta, but died immediately upon arrival at the Ganta United Methodist Hospital.His body has been deposited at a local funeral home, while officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) are carrying out arrest of those allegedly linked to the beating, including the school principal, who alerted the devil.When contacted, the Saclepea Police Detail commander confirmed the incident. According to him, they have detained four persons for questioning, and are still ascertaining whether the man in question actually died from the alleged flogging.Saclepea Statutory District Superintendent Sahn also confirmed the incident. He has called on citizens and the alleged perpetrators to surrender themselves to authorities for questioning.Mr. Sahn also confirmed the detention of Pastor Peter Nyan into the Poro society for initiation.Christian group in Saclepea has not yet made any comment in relation to the latest incident regarding the detention of one of its members for initiation.The issue of Poro society is creating uneasiness in and across the central belt of Nimba County, creating animosity among non members and ordinary travelers.It can be recalled that in Doe Zuaplay Town, some years ago, a man was allegedly beaten to death by the “devil,” after which several persons were arrested and taken to Tappita in Lower Nimba County for trial, but the public is yet to know the outcome of the case.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe toppled wind turbine at Ardara can be seen on the left of the pictureDD EXCLUSIVE: An investigation is underway after a 80 ft wind turbine came crashing to the ground in strong winds near Ardara.The windmill is one of nine located at Maas on the backroad near Ardara.It is believed the wind turbine came down overnight when winds were gusting in the area to 80km/hr. However the fact the turbine crashed in conditions it should otherwise have easily coped with has puzzled experts.Nobody was hurt during the incident.The wind turbines were built by a Danish company Vertas but are believed to be operated by a local business consortium.A gate at the entrance to the windfarm has been locked while engineers and investigators examine the cause of the accident. Locals in the area have been traveling to see the toppled turbine.The nine unit windfarm is the only one in the immediate area but there are plans for more windfarms nearby.One eye-witness said the windmill has completely toppled over but that the winds in the area have since died down.“There were strong winds in the area overnight so I presume that’s when it came down.“I’m sure the company will have to examine the other turbines in the area to see if they are secure,” he said.

Meet South Africa’s first gay biker club

first_imgSporting an emblem of a boy spreading his wings, South Africa’s first gay biker club, Unapologetic, is exercising its freedom to be who they are. The group’s founder, James William Brown, credits the Constitution for this.Anyone is allowed to join Unapologetic Bikers Club, as long as they don’t discriminate against gay people. (Image: Unapologetic Bikers Club)Ray MaotaThe Unapologetic Bikers Club is here to dispel the myth that biking is the bastion of gung-ho heterosexual masculinity.Based in north-west Johannesburg, this gay biker group offers a place of belonging to fellow gay bikers.James William Brown, its founder, said: “Well, I started the group to prove people wrong. To show that we’re still ‘normal’ people, even though we’re gay.“The main point is to reach out to the community and help people who struggle and to show we care. Ultimately, I want to help prove wrong all the stereotypes that people have about being gay.”How the Constitution helpedTo Brown’s knowledge, Unapologetic is the only gay biker club around.He said the Constitution has helped the group a lot. “I believe the Constitution gives us the wings to be who we are without fear of discrimination.“If it were not written down in our Constitution, many would still live in fear of reprisals for having a different sexual orientation [compared to] others.”According to Brown, the group is vital because bikers who are gay, don’t feel as if they are alone.“It should give them a feeling that they’re part of something and they’re making a difference. It’s also a way to meet new people and help others come out; showing them that they don’t need to conform to what society says they are.If you want more info or would like to join Unapologetic, check out their Facebook page or contact James on Unapologeticbikers@hotmail.comWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
