I come from the Ivory Coast. My country is used to experiencing dramatic situations during the rainy season – several floods which lead to destruction of property, loss of life, etc.
But one of the situations that remained with me is that of the death of an entire family — the husband, wife and their son — who were killed in their makeshift house by lightning last year.
After that, the villagers were so upset and sad. They wanted to burn one house in the village because they believed in superstitious practice such as witchcraft, and they thought that the couple who lived there were responsible for this terrible death.
I was very sad to hear this story and I think it will remain in my memory!
