Volunteer youths in Sierra Leone's capital Freetown last week launched "Operation Wash Lunatics" - an attempt to prettify the city's wandering, grubby male nutter population.

According to the local Awareness Times, the initiative kicked off on Saturday on Sani Abacha Street, with a three-phase operation. First up, one group was "tasked with the responsibility to search for all lunatics at various points and bring them to the youths’ makeshift headquarters at Abacha Street".

A second team then shaved the "unkempt hair of the lunatics" while a third "embarked upon bathing the lunatics".

Volunteer Emmanuel Kallo explained they had decided to act "out of sympathetic feelings", adding that the group had themselves paid for the necessary lunatic-washing kit, including soap and shaving sticks.

Street trader Madam Isatu Mustapha declared herself "visibly impressed" with the operation and pledged to follow in the volunteers' footsteps by "taking care of the city’s roaming female lunatics". ®
