“ When they arrived at our compound (our compound is the nearest to the transformer ) , they offloaded their tools .
“ 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 .
