Judas to be beaten in Freetown today

Today is Good Friday.

As a tradition, Judas , who betrayed our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ , is beaten all over the city today.

Residents put together an effigy of Judas and the children come and beat it , symbolizing mankind’s ire against Judas for betraying the Master.

Here is one effigy of Judas to be beaten at noon today.  Photos courtesy : CLAUDIUS BECKLEY AND ALI WEHBE.
