Post Election Violence

I was very happy living with my family until December 2007 when it strock. The nation was dispouring the result of general elections and since we were not native in that land, we were beaten my father was killed and our house set ablaze. The forcherers took away our cows, chicken and household goods without thinking about us my mother suffered a stroke as about of the shock and she is now on a wheelchair.We are now living in an IDP camp, our house is made of polythine papers, and when it rains the water enters our house and we cannot sleep.My life has never remained the same again.
