Bong Traditional Leaders Resolve Zulu Clan Conflict
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

ZULU CLAN, Bong County, September 23 (LINA) –Traditional leaders of Bong County have finally resolved a recent dispute involving some traditional leaders of Zulu Clan in Fuamah District and a local businessman.

Earlier this month, a businessman at a gold mine in the clan, Prince Flomo, alleged that he was harassed by some traditional leaders of the district who used the Traditional Bush Master to intimidate him.

Flomo also alleged that during the incident, over L$600,000 worth of goods, including rice, were forcibly taken away from his shop.

Following the report, a team of traditional leaders headed by Bong County Inspector William Kollie, visited Fuamah District to conduct an investigation into the matter.

Kolie told the Liberia News Agency, following their visit to the clan Tuesday, that the investigation established that the accused traditional leaders committed the crime based on the explanations from all sides involved in the conflict as well as other citizens.

Kollie also said that based on these findings, the team mandated Elder Jimmilon Kerkulah, the man who brought the Traditional Bush Master to town, to immediately restitute the goods or pay the monetary value, something which, he said, Kerkulah has agreed to do.

Reports of consistent harassment of peaceful citizens by some traditional leaders in towns and villages in the county through the use of the Traditional Bush Master, have been on the rise over the past years, especially at gold mining camps.

Currently, the Ministries of Internal Affairs and Justice are investigating two murder incidents involving the use of the Traditional Bush Master by some traditional leaders in Salala District.
