  1. @ Cambrian Explosion
    Thats being very cynical.Its explained that he was asked to leave after his condition deteriorated and no further information is provided.What if he spent all his savings in the hope of recovering? To the one stabbed,to bad.May Their Souls Rest In Peace.

  2. Very sad situations. Sincere condolences to the families.

    Possibly the spouse was not Zambian? Stabbings are are common in the Western Cape.

    For the one forced to leave the house in the Joburg CBD, this is a tough area raided by policy routinely. Imagine being found with a dead body in your room when such happens? More than your immigrant status to bribe the police with. I am just glad at least he was even identified as such. Yes, it is tough being away from home but neither is being at home if you are an honest person not stealing from the unsuspecting.
