    O Lord! Evil! Hmmm… getting live-in helps is such a big risk. May the mama’s soul rest in peace and I pray justice is served.

    These Cotonou people are very wicked and evil people. The never bond with their employers or have any loyalties, they are just interested in money and will kill or betray you in a heartbeat. I speak from experience be very careful when you hire them. Make sure you get a their references from their embassy, have a copy of their passport and several passport pictures.
