      Pot calling kettle black, So is your country Nigeria that’s why many of you are enjoying the peace you can’t buy in Naija, in my country which is close to yours. Do nothing illegal and you’ll have no problem with us.

      Peace is so important.

    This is such sad news. He just got married in May. Life is something else, one minute you’re here and the next you could be gone. May his soul be at peace and may God comfort his wife, family and friends through this tragic time.

    SA would’ve been a sh*thole but the whites have done s good job of developing that place. This is terrible. I mean, they even kill their entertainers.

      Very ignorant statement, just say you love white people and also start reading a book. People who give credit to white people for development in any African country are just backwards to me. South Africa’s history alone should tell you white people only served themselves, so I don’t know what “developments” did they share with you and didn’t with the rest of us.
