    I’ve never been devastated by someone’s death like this. Oh, Bennett! What is life? What is death? Why do we live and what is the purpose of our presence on this big ball called earth? Should we believe that there is One who programs our coming in and going away? Simple but tough questions. I think it is better to believe because if you decide not to and meet Him on that irreversible eternal migration… no apology will be listened to. If you believe and he is not there, you lose nothing. Guys, when someone famous dies it hits me hard philosophically for about two or so days.RIP my man RB.

    This is sad news. To go through what Roy did and then lose his life like this. Senseless. I hope one day that Chinamasa ends up in Chikurubi.
