Killers drag country into state of hopelessness
THE news of the death of Bongani Masuku, a backing vocalist for Johnny Clegg, has stabbed our hearts.
A few years ago our reggae giant, Lucky Dube, was murdered. Now we have just lost another musician, who also died a violent death at the hands of heartless killers. In 1992, Dudu Zulu, another member of Clegg’s band, also died a violent death in KwaZulu -Natal.
What is most disgusting is that Masuku had to lose his life for a mere cellphone and his car.
It seems we are turning into a violent nation where innocent people die for their hard-earned possessions. Criminals use guns to rob people and kill them in cold blood for no reason.
Killers should be punished because they are dragging the country into a state of hopelessness. Those responsible for Masuku ’ s death should be hunted down and face the full might of the law.
