“I started the farm in 1998. In 2007, while waiting for the plantain to mature, somebody went there and stole 60 bunches. I complained and was told nobody will guard my farm for me. Since then, I have been monitoring the farm.
Luck ran against him this 2017 when he stole 35 bunches. I traced him to where he wanted to sell them. He said the plantain was not mine. He stole seven bunches from my farm. I asked him to go and show me where he got others. .
On our way, he stopped. The wood he used to hold his bike, I took it and hit him on the head and he died. His family was looking for him. They came to me and I told them I left him to go but I later took them to where the body is. I want government to forgive me.”
