There should be a source for the claim that Vai is an "egyptian langauge". It is classified as a Mende langauge, not even in the Afo-Asiatic family, let alone Egyptian. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.96.172.191 (talk) 03:37, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

USe of "witchcraft"[edit]

In the "Religion and spiritual belief" section, in the sentence "Most of the Vai are very superstitious and some practice witchcraft", the term "witchcraft is ambitious and does not indicate what it actually represents. The term witchcraft should be removed and replaced with at least a brief description of the belief system, and it would be preferable to have a properly scientific representation. brill (talk) 19:31, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Agree. I've started alterations and will expand + source it. Mabande (talk) 22:20, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
