AS BLACKER RETURNS TO MENTAL HOME, WE EXPECT OTHERS TO FOLLOW FROM THE PEOPLE’S DESK
By SALONE DADDY
Blacker a mad guy who was notorious of barbing other mad people in Freetown was allegedly accused of attacking people in vehicles with knife and other harmful objects especially women.
According to sources, Blacker was reportedly arrested and drag to Kissy mental home last week.
According o sources, he was an inmate of the said mental home but for reasons which can only be explained by authorities working at that hospital, Blacker managed to escape and was seen in different location in the city creating trouble for people.
My reason for writing this piece is to remind authorities concern that the rate at which mad people are roaming the streets of Freetown is alarming.
Honestly, this is a security concern which we expect government to seriously look into.
These sick people are not foreigners, they are Sierra Leoneans. No sane person wants to roam the streets foolishly. Most of these people were abandoned by their families, relatives and friends for reasons better known to them. This is pathetic and disgraceful.
The last time, a mad man killed a kid in a stream at Kissy. Recently in Kono, a kid was found in a mad man house dead and body mutilated.
Against that backdrop, we are making a clarion call to government, philanthropic organization, religious bodies, philanthropists to consciously put heads together and see how best they could help these people.
Honestly, most of them don’t deserve their situation. But it is their destiny and the machination of certain wicked people. They are every where in the city.
We advised government to fix the mental home viz recruit more staff, improve on their facilities and condition of service, provide security and train more Doctors.
I think one simple way for government to help and protect these people is to relocate and and give special attention to them. They are vulnerable. They need help. Any one of us could find our self in such terrific situation.
We sit on our luxurious vehicles and sluggishly watch these people languished on the street failing to help them. They can harm you, damage your luxurious vehicle (BOFF CASE).
Are we waiting for such trouble?
THINK FAST AND ACT FAST
