The transcripts of the trial of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia.
Okay, thank you too.
I heard Liberian people speaking like that.
I do not know its meaning, but that is what we heard from them. "My meh, let's go. My meh", is that not Liberian?
This "meh, meh" thing that we continued hearing. When people speak Liberian that is how we identified them when they said "My meh".
When they met you they just said, "My meh, let's go". That is what they were saying. Some of them were speaking Mende.
They were - as they passed through, they were shouting. They said they had come from Freetown. They were heading for Fiama.
They were speaking Krio, Mende and Liberian.
I said there were many. They had women among them.
There were many. His boys, there were many.
I don't know.
It was not the Kamajor that captured me. I said it was the rebels who captured me.
There were many. I do not know their number.
That was the first time.
They captured me --
I can't make a distinction between them. They were chasing us and they had guns. I wouldn't know which was which.
What I know is when somebody was in combat and was carrying a gun I knew that that person was a rebel.
The next morning, following morning, yes.
It was at that time.
It was very good.
People were there.
At the time the NDMC was there.
I was a petty trader and my husband a miner.
I am Kono, my mother is Kono and my father Temne.
I speak Kono and some Krio.
