Welcome to the POWERHOUSE family blog!

Sunday, August 26, 2012


A huge dark cloud of somberness   - perhaps invoking to some degree memories of the tragic Morne Sion disaster - hung over the proud and peaceful community of Mongouge on Sunday morning. Residents were awakened by the sad news of the death of a young man who some believed happened under mysterious circumstances while others claimed that the circumstances were not too mysterious after all.

The police identified the body as that CM - a construction worker of Mongouge who was found hanging (Inches from the ground) from a mango tree at a location approximately 300 yards to the north of his home, in a bushy area past a  shallow gorge to the west of the Mongouge Adult Daycare Centre.

As the news spread, a huge crowd converged on the scene to witness the gory spectacle which sent shockwaves through the community.

Sources told the Powerhouse that the young man had been talking all week about his “impending death”. A close relative told the blog that he complained that he would die this week but she thought he was only joking and encouraged him to come to work with her; but he declined saying that he didn't want to work; instead he said, he wanted to drink because his imminent death.

Another close friend reported that only last night he claimed that he had lost his will to live (for reasons of a personal nature that we are not authorized to publish). Nonetheless, he said he tried his best to persuade CM to give up on those negative thoughts and to start his life all over again. The close friend said he thought he had succeeded in convincing him; but he told me that “the young man failed (him) just as he failed himself”.

Perhaps, the greatest pain will be felt by CM's mother who has lost 4 of her 7 sons under extreme tragic circumstances; and it is alleged that 3 out of the 4 died under circumstances similar to CM's death.

Many residents are perplexed by CM's sudden death. He had a wonderful character. One of his teachers pointed out that he was a very quite and well-behaved boy at school. A close relative indicated that he was a stable young man and there were no signs that he would sacrifice his life the way he did.

We wish to convey our deepest condolences to the Modeste family in this difficult period of bereavement.

May he rest in peace.
