‘New’ Witchcraft Activity Surfaces in Nimba

Another alarming witchcraft activity, referred to as “Red Cloths,” has surfaced in Nimba County, creating fear among the residents.

According to a Daily Observer probe, the witches practice their magical skills and abilities through the use of pieces of “Red Cloths” against whoever they would target, mainly the women.
The District Commissioner of Zoe Gbar Administration, Reagan Workah, informed reporters that the continued witchcraft activities in his district are becoming alarming and fearful, because those involve are very wicked.

He said the new group under the “Red Cloths” are dealing with a magical cow tail which, he said when they point to anyone, anything they tell the cow tail to be done to that person will be done.

He said he managed to arrest over 30 of those suspected of the practice and sent them to Dahnplay Town in the Buuyao Administrative District, where they were to take an oath, promising not to carry on such practice anymore.

“What those suspects told us as they were confessing is so desperate, and even endangered our lives,” he said.

“They confessed to using the cow tails to bewitch anyone, and if they don’t want to kill you immediately, they will cause a prolonged illness for you,” Commissioner Workah added.

The alarming issue of the witchcraft activities in Nimba has led the residents to call on the government to prosecute those allegedly involved. However, government has been wary of prosecuting alleged witchcraft activities, arguing that they are not scientific, and therefore cannot be adjudicated in the court.

Commissioner Workah said that most of the witchcraft, including their ring leader, secretly left for Monrovia and have reportedly been licensed as herbalists to practice in any part of the country.

Nearly all the community radio stations in Nimba have aired recording of confessions obtained from those  in the witchcraft activities.

One witchcraft suspect who confessed to the killing of a teacher, because the teacher pressed them for his goat they killed, said he “pointed the cow tail to the teacher and shouted, commanding small, small caterpillars to invisibly walk on his body, which troubled the teacher until he died.”

Workah said most of those involved are young men, some of them teenagers, but arrested were taken for oath, and their cow tails seized from them.

In 2005, the “Zoebayoo” created fear in Nimba, but it was put under control, leaving many of the members remaining at-large.

Also, in 2007, another group known as “Kpeasiah” emerged, but it was also put under control.

Recently, another group, known as “nine months”, surfaced with a charm that some men have used against anyone who sleeps with their girlfriend or wife, that the secret lover should die within nine months.

It can be recalled that the head of the Traditional Council of Chiefs, Elder Peter Barloun, called on the members of the 54th Legislature to enact law that will empower the chiefs to prosecute those suspected in witchcraft activities.

    WITCHCRAFT?!!!! WHAT?!!!!!!
    Witchcraft. does. not. EXIST!

    There should be a law in Africa against this stupidity on both sides. The people who think they are magicians and wizards/witches and shamans killing people with magical cow tail curses and invisible caterpillars and the idiots who take them serious and then arrest these delusional people. This is pathetic and sad it what it is. It’s Salem all over again. Just like the people in Mozambique dumb enough to believe bald men have gold in their heads or people thinking Albinos have magical powers or that carrying dead female genital body parts in your wallet will give you power of your colleagues. This is out of hand. Liberia needs to be back under the control of my people like in 1848. No, all of Africa needs to be under our control. This is sickening. Africa is the world’s laughing stock and I am tired of it. It makes us all look primitive. These people are so flawed and so hopeless. I have lost my faith in this nation and I clearly see that the overthrow of William Tolbert Jr. was a fatal mistake that led to the country falling into a kindergarten classroom student council practice of running a nation. Liberia can only work with an highly educated status quo, educating the people and establishing nation identity and culture. This and only this can prevent such degenerate superstitions and unnecessary panic. For this to work, Liberia and ALL of Africa must have a unified government where the state controls the culture of the nation, curtails superstitions and shapes the aspects of daily life. This can only occur under totalitarian governance.

  2. Such a travesty for a country with so much potential. The few mutants need to strategize and harness resources so the madness can shrink. Evil running amok!

    The devil is a liar 🤥!

  3. Misty,
    I’d like to say that you’re the bestest. But sadly, “bestest” is not a word. On the other hand, I am reluctant to say you’re the best. Why? Because I will be exposed to criticism! So let me put it this way…..
    For saying so little above in such a sensible way, you’re one of the best!

    The comnenter before you, whether Mr. or Mrs. Coloured Pride World Wide (CPWW), claims to be a non-believer of wizards/witches or higher-up magicians. But strangely, CPWW conceals his/her name. Something is wrong and that’s why CPWW cannot be taken seriously. With such a powerful condemnation of black magic, why conceal one’s name?
    In conclusion I will say this…….with as much suffering in Liberia, the magical powers that the shaman possess, (they’ve got all sorts of names ascribed to them) they could remove mountains. Instead, they kill, maim and cause bodily harm to their fellow countrymen and women.

    In Psalm 35:6, the Psalmist rightfully states: “May their path be dark and slippery with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.” I hope they’ll be pursued. Hope they’ll forego their evil practice and turn to the Lord. Satanic forces run amonk. But they will fail because God is in control. Amen

    • My name is Zachary Tiberius Varen. I am a Hybrid like my ancestors before me who ruled this nation with an iron fist.

      “In conclusion I will say this…….with as much suffering in Liberia, the magical powers that the shaman possess, (they’ve got all sorts of names ascribed to them) they could remove mountains. Instead, they kill, maim and cause bodily harm to their fellow countrymen and women.”
      This line made me lose all respect for your point and I immediately stopped reading this ignorance. Like my forefather, Jospeh Jenkins Roberts, I now see we must again subjugate these savages. They are too primitive and ignorant to live in their country. They do not deserve Liberia and in a just world, they would be expelled from their homes and kicked out of our country.

      “In Psalm 35:6, the Psalmist rightfully states: “May their path be dark and slippery with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.” I hope they’ll be pursued. Hope they’ll forego their evil practice and turn to the Lord. Satanic forces run amonk. But they will fail because God is in control. Amen”
      There are no witches, there is no devil and there are no gods. God is a European myth that has long been disproven. If your God is real and your god loves you, why do you struggle in utter poverty and starvation, cannibalism and chaos, ignoramce and myth?

      The Republican Party of Liberia, The True Whig Party Of Liberia and my brethren of the Hybrid/Coloured mixed-race Americo-Liberian ethnic group are long since gone but their legacy lives on through us who never left the lands we were forced into centuries ago and we never forget. So, it’s alright. It’s okay, don’t worry. You people can not survive without minority rule or colonization. The solution is obvious. You people must never be given control of your nations again. You are profligates and slaves. Frist to Whites and now to the coming Chinese. You people are backwards leeches and parasites of a failed age from 100,000 years ago.

      I’m sure the annals of our history will remember you primitives and the diaspora Negroids, as well as the first Hybrids who started this glorious cause of racial secession like the Whites remember the Neanderthal and the Asians remember the Denisovan. Something to think about, remembered only in museums and biology classes. A snapshot of a bygone age of primordial hedonistic ape-like hunter-gatherer lesser existence before finally ascending as a 21st century diverging enlightened haplogroup and becoming a 23rd-24th century superior and refined master race. The descendants of my people will point and laugh at a mock scultpure of you primitives and they will ask: “Did the progenitor to the haplogroup that created us actually used to look like that in Africa? Was Africa a hot place? Did they actually believe in witches? Did they actually live in mud huts? Why is our nation so advance and so cold?” What a golden age it will be. My race shall rise and if you subhumans even still exist, you will be nothing but curios. Exotic wildlife, nothing more. Something to throw bananas and peanuts at in a zoo if we colonize you savages dumb enough to let it happen because you are dumb enough to believe a cow tail can move mountains. I wish for that day one of my kind will enlighten you savages and bless you with enslavement and colonization. I would support any man from my kind who would do it.

  4. It is okay to disagree with your friends, associates, acquaintances or your political enemies sometimes during the event of a heated argument. But it makes no sense to insult or resort to the use of polemics when you express an opinion. Mr Varen, although I may disagree with you from time to time, I have the greatest respect for you as an individual. I have not insulted you, neither will I do so irrespective of whether you’re right or wrong. More importantly, it’d be uncivil on my part. With all due respect Sir, please abstain from the use of broadsides if and when you deal with me. Peace!
