She escaped, but I was taken to the village. They gathered everyone and the machete shots started: hands, legs, genitals, ears, fingers, heads.... Everyone was screaming, the rebels were shooting, I was crying. It took them five strokes to cut my leg, and then I fainted. " A team of doctors Medecins Sans Frontieres saved his life.

At the age of 22 years old, he died of liver failure shortly after this testimony.
