Last night, Rhum Bakara, a renowned rum company based in Croix-des-Bouquets, fell victim to a shocking and violent attack when a group of armed bandits stormed their premises. Tragically, two employees lost their lives, and four others sustained injuries during the terrifying incident.
The assailants executed a well-coordinated assault, deliberately setting three trucks ablaze and making off with eight more, leaving a trail of destruction behind. Moreover, they brazenly stole numerous crates of highly valuable rum from the company’s stocks.

Adding to the gravity of the situation, the company officials are now faced with the grim reality that tankers filled with inflammable substances pose a serious threat of explosion at any given moment.
In a desperate plea for immediate assistance, Rhum Bakara has issued an urgent SOS to both local and national authorities, urging them to act swiftly in order to avert a potential catastrophe that not only endangers the lives of their dedicated staff but also puts the lives of nearby residents at risk.
