  1. Thank you. Let him learn that life is precious. Let others learn too. Parents invested a lot in those young people for them to lose just like that. Throw the bugger in jail and throw away the key.

  2. Did the Coxswain invite those idiots to the fishing rig? The current Covid 19 regulations restrict such stupid outings, but some Cimpwena Cimpwena churches choose to ignore those regulations. Why is it that the SDA has more accidents whether from fires in the camp to road carnage, what safety measures do they take as a church which is under obligation from God to have respect for life?
