Bereaved Mother Laments Death of Her 14-Year-Old Son




By Buba Gagigo


A bereaved mother, Jola Sawaneh of Kunkujang has lamented the death of her 14-Year-Old son, Lamin Jassey, fondly called ‘Bakebba’.


Lamin reportedly died from the injury he sustained, after his playmate [name withheld] ‘jokingly’ stabbed him with a pair of scissors on his stomach.


The sad incident occurred last night [Sunday] in Kunkujang. According to the weeping mother, the playmate claimed to have been joking with Lamin, when he stabbed him, which subsequently led to his death.


“He [playmate] stabbed my son with a pair of scissors on his stomach. We rushed him to the hospital, and he was given some medicine, but the next day morning [Monday] he died,” the bereaved mother explained.


When asked what she would do about the death, she said in tears: “For this incident, I am the loser, I am the loser.”


Jola is deeply saddened by Lamin’s death who lost his father when he was just one-year-old.


The late Lamin was a seventh year grade student at Saint Charles L’wanga Upper Basic School in Faji Kunda, but he lived with his mother in Kunkujang; while his playmate is a pupil of another school in the West Coast Region.
