“I know all of you my dear friends are concerned and have many questions about the death of our friend Hinga. According to the mother, Hinga was doing fine n he did his best to remain the man we all helped him to be. on Thursday the 14th, Hinga left home n went to visit his friends in kayole, upon reaching there he called his mom n complained of a stomach-ache though not serious, he spent the night there and said he will be ok. “
