The country has been robbed of one of its most talented and patriotic musical ambassadors in Lucky Dube. I was devastated by the senseless killing of a star who brought so much joy to so many and who was the biggest exporter of South African music.
The circumstances surrounding his murder again illustrate that violent crime is out of control. It also signifies yet again how much criminals disregard human life in this country. Women are abused, children molested, shooting sprees in public places, heists and alcohol and drug abuse abound. How long are we going to live like this and what message are we sending to the world?
Condolences to his family. May the Lord Almighty strengthen you in these trying times.
