  1. Wow, when will the blood shedding stop. Young Men, I urge you all to put some senses into you’ll heads. Think before acting and more prayers will enable those who are affected to think differently. Taking away one’s life doesn’t make anyone a bad Man,there’s no place for bad Man in our society. There are other ways in solving our problems than the slaying of each other. Try not to live a regrettable life and encourage your friend’s to think before taking action, because the life you saved may well be yours than taking away someone else’s own. Life is precious so cherish it.

  2. On this Planet we live under two Laws; the Law of the Almighty and the Law of man.
    If you abide by the Law of God, then you shouldn’t have to worry about any other law.
    Psalm 50: 22. “Now consider this, you who forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and
    there be none to deliver:”
    That’s a very heavy warning; if you do your own thing, then this:- “you kill – you hang.”

  3. This is the result of modernization .We imitate more advanced and developed countries, so in the end we also inculcate the negative values and nuances of these countries.I recall when one murder was way too many now it is so rampant people are becoming de-sensitized.

  4. The homicide count is ridiculously high for such a small country. Law enforcement has to step up and the population has to come together with one goal in mind and that is to adopt a no tolerance attitude to all crimes. The people have the power but do they have the will?

  5. Out of these five,who held the knife? and who is accesory? We waiting for more details normaly these deaths occur at some social gathering,and there is awhole bunch of guys that saw it all.
