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)
