A white man had ridden an iron horse (bicycle) into the village. The elders of the village killed the man and tied the bicycle to a scared tree. Later, three whate men arrived and left quickly after seeing the bike tied to the tree. Just a few weeks later, those same men returned to the village on market day, surrounded the market, and killed all of the people present there. It was a massacre.
