Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
It is with deep regret and a profound sense of loss that reggae lovers have learnt of the killing of revered South African and international reggae star Lucky Dube.
The question asked by Mzwakhe Mbuli that, what kind of country did not protect its icons, touched me. In this country, there is no respect for life. We don't care about the status of the country. Leaders should stand up and act before things that are already out of hand get worse.
Throughout the most difficult time during the struggle for democracy, strength, compassion and determination were an inspiration to freedom fighters. But now there is an abuse of democracy.
Crime needs to be dealt with immediately. Political organisations raise the issue day and night, but our leaders are doing nothing about the situation. One may ask, who will be shot next? No one knows. It could even be our president, because this country has lost trust and respect.
Last week, we lost actor Patrick "Kid" Mokoena and now, Lucky Dube. South Africa has lost true heroes, men who dedicated their lives to develop the country.
I extend my heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the families of Lucky Dube and "Kid" Mokoena.
