  1. This is sad development. Their families and friends are in my thoughts and prayers. Quick recovery to those in hospital.

  2. Very sad news indeed for the bereaved families. May they rest in peace, and I hope they find the cause of the food poisoning – deliberate poisoning or was it food gone bad? Investigate please.
