  2. Too bad for me as his fan, May his soul rest in peace. In turn lets now think on ourselves as Jesus in at our doors Knocking , he wants to enter and save us from Evil and sinful Death. Its up to me and you now. condolences to all family members.

  3. Excessive speeding caused the accident. I’ve been in cars in Zambia; drivers have no concept of danger.

    On a different topic, is it necessary to report the residential address of the driver? GDPR breach if over here in Europe. The CIO would be all over this.
