Times have been very tough recently. Ilorin is no longer the peaceful city it was a year ago. There have been several killings inour area. One was a young girl on her way home from the night vigil at her church. We were also stopped by the police and warned not to walk down the road in the dark as a sixty year old woman had been attaked by men with machetes, raped and killed. We cannot go out at all now after dark so are virtually trapped in our house once we return from work. Also some thieves have taken parts form the local transformer so we have had long periods with no NEPPA at all. As a result we also have very little water! There are also a lot of traffic jams as filling stations are not releasing fuel in an effort to increase the price of fuel!
The photo shows Lea washing up by candle light! We are both very tired now. Sleep is a problem as we have a new neighbour with a very noisy generator so the choice is shut the window and sleep in the heat or listen to the generator!
