I have had an inquiry from a teacher in a local school regarding the
practice of cannibalism in Liberia. Can anyone confirm or debunk the
practice. I know that according to Schwab ( is was
fairly extensive prior to colonial authority. I am also aware that
certain resurgent "practices" occured in Zaire in the 60's and reportedly
for MauMau in Kenya during that rebellion. Might his also be happening
in Liberia given their current state of unrest?
