We had the problem with the fuel – the food supplies the water supplies, and then the leaking problem with the cargo. It's like a small cargo. And so the man, who's the captain of the ship, he refused to leave. And so my father said you know you have to. With the Chief of the Province, he came along too. And a lot of other soldiers.
As the man tried to get onshore, that time we were on the ship already, to get the supplies, as they were entering the ship we heard on shore a lot of um, ah noises from the comrades, ‘cause we heard they were shooting up in the skies, told us to stop leaving, otherwise they would shoot at us.
So we had to take a chance, because we have made it this far. And we took up and luckily they left us alone during the daytime. It was three, I would say, three, four o’clock in the afternoon. So during the night was another fear was coming up. A lot of helicopters, it must be like four or five, were searching for us, so we have to put the lights out.
And everybody, like women or kids have to hide underneath of the boat. And during the time each of the men took turns to – water out – because of the leaking problem.
