    People should be very careful with the kind of people they hired for work in their homes either as mai guard,cooks etc.Most especially people that you don’t know very well.You don’t just go to the street and pick anyone you don’t know much about or simply ask anybody you see to help you find a staff to work in your house.The world has gone bad imagine what this guy has done to this woman.So sad.Rip madam.
