According to one Malongbo Poro Society insider who spoke to Provincial Times on condition of anonymity said the only successor accepted to the gods according to tradition is Sallieu koroma and no other person can act in that capacity when he is still alive. The vacuum created by his absence has accumulated hundreds of “GBORAKAS” (Non-initiates) because our insider source said initiation cannot be done without been superintended by a “SOKOBANA” (Chief Priest)

This medium’s anonymous source noted that the tradition dictates that when a successor refuses to ascends the society priesthood he risk been beheaded and his head presented to the gods to appease a replacement outside his lineage.

Sallieu who is said to be outside the country in protest of traditional beliefs that are inhuman, degrading and outdated will risk the prescribed consequences if he ever visit his country or decides to return.

Sallieu, who according to his maternal uncle Pa. Santigie Kamara witnessed the barbarism of being a member of dreaded society at teen after his late father superintended his initiation in preparation for succession grew up to hate it and developed a resistance attitude to succeed his “SOKOBANA” priest father.

A source close to the Koroma family told this press that Sallieu’s immediate family had been subjected to all manner of intimidation, harassment and touting to disclose his whereabouts’.
