      Yes beverly it was a conspiracy that the boat would be taken out and be capsized so the man could die. Seriously the things people say!!!!

    My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace ntanga (means people of the same age in Nguni). Even though I never met you in life maybe I've lunched or dined on one of your catches because fish is the only meat my doctor allows me to eat.
