Recently i was visiting town x in country A for a vacation since i have certain folks living there i had gone there for a nice pleasant vacation,a couple of days passed in the hot town x in a uneventful manner those usual evening when my uncle returned from work to our palatial house and would take us around for a drive our to some cozy place to eat or those occasional take-away,now these take-away were taking place because our awesome cook Mrs Abcd was out attending a wedding,she cooked for ours as well as eight families to make ends meet, She cooked for us in the morning as well as in the evenings.she had two daughters.
One evening my maternal grand-mother receives a phone call from Mrs bereaved our cook.
Mrs Bereaved:”Ma’am i wont be able to make it for work tomorrow morning.”
my grandmother:”Why you were supposed to return today from the wedding and report for work tomorrow morning” and then instinctively asks if she was alright.
Mrs bereaved our cook broke down.
my grandmother:”What happened! tell me”
Mrs bereaved:”They killed her!”
my grandmother:”who killed whom,tell me clearly”
Mrs bereaved:”my daughter,they killed her.her husband and her mother in law killed her”she sobbed uncontrollably.
Mrs bereaved:”They locked the room,held her hands and feet then cut her vein in the wrist and pressed her neck and before doing that they had mixed poison in her food”
Mrs bereaved:”she’s dead,an autopsy is being conducted on her”
Mrs bereaved:”her twins are refusing to state anything against their father”
my grandmother:”wow i don’t have anything to say”she sighed
Mrs bereaved:”i will report to work as soon as i cremate my daughter”
my grandmother:”oh please!take your time”
Mrs Bereaved cremated her daughter and reported to work she did not even spend time mourning at home and reported for work to her eight duties afraid that one of her 8 employers might just cut her salary which she cannot afford,she did not FILE A POLICE COMPLAINT EVEN AFTER BEING PRODDED FOR DOING SO FOR DAYS,SHE STATED THAT WHEN EVEN THE VICTIMS CHILDREN WERE VOUCHING FOR THE KILLERS I.e THE HUSBAND AND THE MOTHER-IN-LAW.HOW WOULD SHE ALONE FIGHT FOR HER DAUGHTER AND ALSO THAT SHE WAS APPREHENSIVE OF THE APATHY OF THE JUSTICE SYSTEM AND THE ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES.CURRENTLY SHE STILL IS BEING CONVINCED TO DO SOMETHING,HOPEFULLY SHE WILL TAKE THE FIRST STEP.WILL THE VICTIM AND MRS BEREAVED GET JUSTICE I DO NOT KNOW WILL THINGS CHANGE IN THE COUNTRY I DO NOT KNOW.
