  1. Francis Chigunta, gone too soon. He was a great thinker. My heart goes out to his young wife who has the huge task of bringing 6 young children

  2. great thinker? hmmm, tell us some of his thoughts kaili? I think he is just one of those academic regurgitators who are built to perpetuate white supremacy. If you think am lying, check his thesis and dissertation papers. You will understand what i mean.

  4. It is good the late professor’s wife is still youthful. I am a widower myself and will not hesitate to propose marriage to her.
