Local tabloids have revealed that Witchcraft Courts now exist in the city of Freetown.

Many people have reportedly undergone the ordeal.

Education Ministry Exposes FBC

Reports have it that the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Mr. Sheku Tamu has reportedly pointed out that his ministry will take the appropriate action to ensure that authorities at Fourah Bay College (FBC) comply with the Ministry’s directives, regarding fees at the College. Reports say the Ministry has written many letters to all tertiary institutions for the latter not to increase fees this years but FBC authorities have ordered the students to pay additional fees. Reports say all other colleges in the country have reduced their increment to the normal fees.

Rokel Village Head Debunks Council Threat

Reports have alleged that the Head Woman of the Rokel Village, Mrs. Yamide Langley, has strongly condemned the action of the Western Area Rural District Council (WARDC) as the Council demanded that all headmen in that area should surrender their symbols of authority. According to reports, the Council had, in since June 2008, declared those positions vacant. Mrs. Langley say the action is very unprecedented, whilst vowing that she will only surrender her symbol after another election.

Civilians to Aid MACP

According to reports, the military will soon be relieved from the MACP operations, whilst the civilians in various communities will help the police to protect their environments. Reports say all community watch members are going to be screened by both the police and some community members to select strong and crime free men.
