All the famous football stars from the Ivory Coast are worried sick about their families living there since the civil war erupted.
It all started with ex-President Laurent Gbago not accepting his defeat and the result of the election. He would not side step to let his rival Alassane Quattara take the presidency.
Quattara did not hesitate and brought his Republican forces from the north and the battle began between the dictator's army supported by the Liberian mercenaries.
The United Nation reported 3,000 people were killed and unbelievable atrocities were committed by both sites. One Million people fled the fighting.
Star football players like Solomon Kalou,, Kolo Toure, brother Yaya, Emmanueal Eboue and Didier Zokora appreciated their success and stardom which is unusual for most of today's football stars. They all tried to build up the Ivory Coast and established football academies to give the youngsters a chance to follow their footsteps. They were all very dedicated to their country.
However, unfortunately it was not to be and now they are worried about their families' safety.
When Solomon Kalou scored the winning goal in the 89 minute; he did not celebrate because he knew the peril his family were in. All their families are targets for the soldiers, mostly drunk.
Kalou's father was trapped by fierce fighting in Youpougon area. He managed a petrifying taxi ride to his son's house in the upper class area of Deux Plateaux.
Drogba's family were not in a better position. A rumour was spread that Drogba supported financially Gbagbo which was not true. Drogba and Gbagbo come from the same tribe which didn't help. At the beginning of April rockets were fired and landed in Guiberoua which is two miles away from Drogba's family home. Drunken Republican soldiers kicked down the door of his father's house. His father was in London but they threaten the family with shooting and stole everything in the house. They were lucky to be still alive.
Ten miles away they hacked 14 people to death.
Eventual the soldiers were overrun when they tried to get Abidjan under their control. French troops stormed Gbagbo's stronghold and captured him on April 11. He is now under arrest in a hotel. Ivory Coast is the world's biggest cocoa exporter.
Here and there are still outbreaks of violence and UN 10,000 peacekeepers trying to keep the tribes apart to avoid ethnic killing.
