“I came out of my house to meet them. They weren’t in uniform; so, I asked them who they were and what they had come to do.

“This guy then explained why they had come. I didn’t know (that) our transformer was faulty until he told me. They had come to fix it.

“I laughed. It was raining and they wanted to work on the transformer? I laughed and told him jokingly that under this weather condition, one of his crew would die today. I didn’t mean what I said.
