Death Mars Bassa’s Trophy Celebration

first_imgA 16-year-old, Darlingboy Philips, dubbed ‘Dad’ was crushed to death when he accidentally fell from a low-belt truck this past Saturday, amid rejoicing over Grand Bassa County’s triumph in the National County Meet after 24 years of title-drought.The truck, with the inscription ‘Grand Bassa County Development Fund,’ rolled over the lad and crushed his chest and smashed his skull near the entrance of the Doris Williams Sports Stadium.He had slipped while he and friends were hanging on the vehicle’s tail-end after the program when the car was leaving the Doris Williams Sports Stadium.That celebration in Buchanan City, Grand Bassa County, marked the official celebration of the county’s two trophies won in the 2013/2014 National County Meet.The teenager’s accidental death was linked to connection of ‘neejee’ activities.In Liberia ‘neejee,’ is usually interpreted as witchery and is always generally associated with the people of Grand Bassa County.The Traffic Coordinator of the Grand Bassa Police Detachment, Inspector Stephen B. Kpoeh, told the Daily Observer Sunday morning that Darlingboy died instantly after he was run over by the truck on Saturday. He had been pronounced dead after he was rushed to the Liberian Government Hospital in Buchanan.Inspector Kpoen said the truck driver, Samuel Barlingar, 48, has been investigated and is being detained by Police to avoid ‘unnecessary’ mob violence.He disclosed that from the preliminary investigations, Driver Barlingar is not guilty, in accordance with Section 10.107 of the Police’s Traffic Law of Liberia; the late Darlingboy was hitching a ride without the driver’s knowledge.Section 10.107 of the Police Traffic Law, under the subtitle Soliciting Rides, reads: “No person shall stand on any roadway for the purpose of soliciting a ride and from the driver of any vehicle.”The Chief of Traffic of Grand Bassa Police Detachment, Inspector Allen Suah, told the Daily Observer, that after a conference with Grand Bassa’s Superintendent Etweda Cooper, they instructed the family to bury the body yesterday (Sunday), because the county is not responsible for the boy’s death and burial. They promised to send a representative to meet with the family afterwards.The late Darlingboy was laid to rest the day after his death (Sunday) due to his severe injuries.The deceased was a 3rd grade student of Lower Hardlandsville Public School and was helping to support his family through the sale of used clothes.Darlingboy was the oldest of four sons from his parents, who are both alive.  He was living with his uncle, Alphonso Philips, in Jeko’s Town, Buchanan. His parents are Timothy and Sundaymae Philips, and they are living in the interior with the deceased’s brothers.Mr. Robert Guah, a relative of the late Darlingboy expressed disappointment and frustration over the absence of county authorities and members of the Grand Bassa Legislative Caucus, up to the time of burial.Meanwhile, friends from Jeko’s Town have expressed their condolences to the bereaved family; they urged the family to investigate the death of Darlingboy, which they described as mysterious.“How come out of ten people hanging from the truck, he alone fell and was killed instantly? There must be something behind it,” a man only identified as Nyensuah stated.According to Nyensuah, about three weeks ago, one Ben Roberts met a similarly mysterious death. “We think that it is not normal; there must be witch or neeje activities behind them; we know it is all happening because elections are around the corner,” Nyensuah lamented.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Under the sweltering mid-afternoon Kisumu heat, the game didn’t have much pace with both sides taking time to pass the ball around the simmering turf, pace hugely slowed down by the scorching 2pm heat.Mathare were building up from the back, young keeper Job Ochieng being hugely involved.However, it was Gor who broke the deadlock after eight minutes when Tuyisenge scored his 14th goal of the season after beating the offside trap to face Ochieng one on one and calmly place the ball beyond him.It was a positive start for Gor who were coming into the tie on the backdrop of three losses on the trot and with the feel good factor of the trophy day awaiting them, it was a brilliant way to get the party started.Gor Mahia striker Ephraim Guikan goes past the Mathare keeper Job Ochieng during their Kenyan Premier League clash at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on September 30, 2018.

In the 20th minute, Clifford Alwanga tried his luck with a shot from distance but it flew straight to keeper Peter Odhiambo.Four minutes on the turn, Gor had another brilliant opportunity to double their lead when Ephraim Guikan was sent through by Tuyisenge, the Ivorian doing everything right but placing the ball inside the net.Guikan did well to beat keeper Ochieng one on one but his eventual shot at goal was heroically cleared off the line by a sliding Samuel Olwande.The Slum Boys having dodged a bullet increased their forays upfront and on the half hour mark, keeper Odhiambo was forced to work extra hard flying to his right to block a volley from Alwanga after a corner had been flicked his way on the right.Gor Mahia defender Karim Nizigiyimana turns away from Mathare United’s John ‘Mavado’ Mwangu during a Kenyan premier League match at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on Sunday September 30, 2018.
