The remains of 39-year-old Bendu Konneh, killed on Saturday, November 8, were buried in her hometown of Manifah in Grand Cape Mount County.The mother of five’s traditional seven-day feast was held by family and friends on Sunday, November 23, at the family’s residence in St. Paul Bridge, Twe Farm, outside Monrovia. Eyewitnesses told the Daily Observer that Bendu Konneh died when a jeep, driven by a Fulani, veered off the road after coming from the compound of Martha’s Elbow, a popular motel.“First the driver struck a motorbike rider,” said Mr. Jenika Sirleaf, uncle of the deceased, “before desperately turning the jeep towards the direction where many people were standing.”He said the victim, who had alighted from a taxi few seconds before the accident had by then crossed the road towards her destination.“Like many people here at that evening, around 7.p.m. the jeep narrowly missed me, and when I turned around immediately I recovered I saw the jeep going towards the victim’s way.”He explained that when his niece apparently saw the screaming jeep coming her way, with the distressed driver unable to control it, she made an attempt to “run away from the advancing jeep to safety.”“But the jeep struck Bendu Konneh,” Uncle Sirleaf said, “and there was blood all over the place.”During the confusion the driver, yet to be identified, sought safety at a nearby police depot, afraid that he could have been mobbed to death by the crowd that later rushed on the scene to assist the victim.Ms. Watta Konneh, a sister of the deceased, told the Daily Observer yesterday that the family heard from the unidentified driver from a Fulani elder, identified only as Jabbie, who presented the amount of L$5, 000 to the family which was rejected. “He later brought L$15,000 and despite some opposition from other family members, the money was accepted to help with the burial,” Ms. Konneh said.She said the family and the driver’s representative would be holding a meeting, after yesterday’s seven-day feast.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Head coach Bruce Arians watches his team practice during Arizona Cardinals OTAs Tuesday, May 17. (Photo by Adam Green/Arizona Sports) TEMPE, Ariz. — To rehash the night would be unnecessary and in a way, cruel.Suffice to say, the NFC Championship Game in Carolina last January did not go nearly as well as the Arizona Cardinals hoped or thought it would.Home team 49, visitors 15.Enough said.“Coaches probably dwell on it a lot longer than players do,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday as his team wrapped up its first OTA practice of the season while answering a question about QB Carson Palmer’s ability to bounce back. “Our last game where we were on tape was ******, we played poorly — the worst we played all year. You look for reasons; played a really good team and didn’t play very well.” No, they didn’t.Including the playoffs, the Cardinals lost four games all season. Only twice — Week 17 vs. Seattle and in Carolina — did they appear to be outclassed.Many point a finger at Palmer, who was intercepted four times and lost two fumbles, as the reason for the latter loss. Questions about his ability to win “the big game” have persisted, and he admitted that they will until he comes away with a win in a game of that magnitude.But if nothing else, the final game of the 2015 season gave Palmer and the rest of the team a glimpse of what it was like to play that deep into the postseason, even though he said there were not really any surprises last January.And what happened in Carolina, at least for Palmer, is staying in Carolina.“I think the last game of everybody’s season in the playoffs lingers for a year, two years, three years, an entire lifetime — it just depends,” Palmer said. “But I’m not letting anything linger with myself, personally. I think it depends on each person; with me I’m just focused on today.”Palmer’s teammates have differing feelings on what transpired in the NFC Championship Game, though the common theme is disappointment in how things went down. But with the 2016 league year upon them, the page has been turned and optimism has come back. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo That may be the case, though the only thing that matters is what happens on the field when the games start to count. In preparation for the Sept. 11 opener the Cardinals will work toward their ultimate goal with the kind of confidence that comes with being a team that won 13 regular season games and the NFC West before reaching the NFC Championship Game.Must they prove they’re a better team? Yes. Do they have any extra motivation to do so?“No,” Arians said. “I think getting so close gives you all the motivation you need. If you look at it as, ‘Oh, we failed’ to be motivated — no, we achieved a hell of a lot. All we have to do is get a little bit better.“You look at it that way and you can take all the good things you did last year and build on them.” – / 23 Comments Share Top Stories “In a sense you kind of forget it but at the same time it definitely inspires you to do better,” cornerback Patrick Peterson said. “Because a lot of us — like coach said — it was kind of weird that all of the five-star players had one of their worst games.“It’s definitely inspiring because that’s a bad taste I want to get out of my mouth, out of this team’s mouth, out of this organization because I feel that we definitely didn’t — I don’t want to say put our best foot forward — it just wasn’t our best effort in going out there and winning.”Added left tackle Jared Veldheer when speaking with Bickley and Marotta on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM: “You use that failure as a walkway to future success. You don’t just kind of close it out, don’t look at it. You don’t let it consume you; you use it for what it is and you use it for growth.”The Week 1 opener against the New England Patriots will represent the first real opportunity to work their way back to the stage they fell flat on last season, and with a little less than four months until that night, there is a strong belief that an offseason of changes has made the Cardinals an even better team than they were when last on an NFL field.
