    Very difficult to absorb the news of Lucky Dube's uncalled for demise. Nothing seems to be working out for Africans in nursing the worthy culture their counterparts suffered to create!
    Rest in peace Dube.

    Rastaman never die! No evil deed goes unpunished and surely the wrath of Jah shall descend upon those who committed this cowardly, murderous and senseless act.

    I was personally shocked with the sad news about the death of Lucky Dube.
    We were all used to his song, first for the struggle against the apartheid and nowadays he was singing about the social problems which are the same in our societies.
    Lucky rest in peace, we will store in our computers and minds your music so that you voice will not vanish from us.

    The killing of lucky dube brings to life the fear of crime in south Africa during the world cup. AS zambians we helped south africa to fight racism but now the greatest enermy southafricans have is themselves - crime. Many Zambians and other nationals havebeen murdered in south africa . Those ruthless criminals should have just gotten his car than to take his life. the quetion is what have they archieved as individuals after the killing?.
    Lucky 's music was educative and was panafrican.

    Poverty and crime goes hand in hand, until now the world ignored the fact that South Africa has the highest violent crime rate in the world. If it takes lucky Dube to die for the politicians in South Africa to wake up. Let it be. Like the rastaman say, "To free yourself blood have to shed." Long live Lucky Dube, your life is in the music and music is life.

    I learnt with great shock from my wife a few minutes ago that Lucky Dube was shot dead in yet another violent car-jacking incident in Jo'Burg. Lucky Dube has been a great icon of the struggle against injustices through Raggae music. He will be greatly missed by many people in Africa. I urge the authorities in S.Africa to speedly stamp out armed violence as a tribute to this fallen hero.
