Statutory Rape & Cultural Incest within Sierra Leoneís Nomadic Griots

A unique feature of a tiny few of Sierra Leoneís otherwise respectable nomadic griots is lack of respect for women especially their mothers.

 

They will commit egregious rape of under-aged female relatives like their nieces; impregnating poor girls. They see it as culturally okay.

 

However, according to common law, sexual relations with an under-aged niece, no matter her consent, is statutory rape & criminal incest.

 

Such STATUTORY RAPISTS involved in the practice of cultural incest are actually in contravention of the laws of the land. There are many of such griots (Jelibas) in Sierra Leone today.

 

They are seen in many spheres of life posing with facades. The truth is they are sick, common RAPISTS no matter the cultural acceptance of such incestuous preying on their nieces. They belong to gutters.
