Tamba Ngaujah, father of a recent graduate Emmanuel Ngaujah, was the first amputee of the war; “both of his hands were cut off by rebel soldiers from the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) in 1991. Today he lives in a four-room zinc shack on the side of a steep hill outside Freetown, with his wife, six children, and two other relatives. He is the sole provider for his household – no small feat for a man who has no hands. The RUF trials are still ongoing and judgments are expected in 2008. But even then, Mr. Ngaujah will still be searching for justice. “Those who have caused these problems, to jail them or do whatever to them, why can’t [the government] think about the people who suffered from the war and come to their aid?” he said last week.” source
