FATHER CHASES HER DAUGHTER FOR PRATICING SAME SEX ACTIVITIESBy:- Alhaji Mohamed Wusha-Conteh 3rd November 2015
Assiatu Musa Bongay a Sierra Leonean who belongs to the Mende ethnic group but her beliefs and practices may not be putting her in a comfortable life in the society that is yet to fully accept some sex practices at this present.
Ms Bongay may see it difficult wherever she is in the country for practicing something that is against the will of her family members, especially her father who is a dedicated Muslim and more over the mende ethnic group are the most religious people in Sierra Leone both Muslim and Christian.
Ever since, Ms. Bongay decided to follow something his society is not ready to accept she has face lots, of different kinds and types of discrimination. The mende ethnic group where Assiatu belongs is a highly Religious ethnic group in Sierra Leone, They believes to marry for their daughter rather than them engaging in any adulterous practices.
According to Mr Mohamed Bongay in 2014 they told her to get marry to a chief Mr Gibawo Nyakoi since her elder sister has pass away (died) but Assiatu could not encourage that since she prefers sex with someone other than men. Mr Bongay stressed that they will not allowed such practices because it is against their belief as a Muslim and they will do their best to wipe same sex practices out of her.
On the 31st October 2015 Assiatu family members and other group of gang and police went where they suspect Assiatu was having meeting with some lesbian friends at black Hall Road and threatened that they will forcefully removed her there and strangle her to death because they think she is the black sheep of the family, but unfortunately they could not found her and openly disowned Assiatu because of her sexuality.
