R.I.P Lucky Dube: Boks to play tribute.

The news of the murder of one of our national treasures, Lucky Dube has cast a long shadow over tomorrows Rugby festivities.

Much loved Dube was shot in front of his son and daughter, in a carjacking attempt last night. Three suspects are on the run in what is one of the highest profile South African murders in recent history.

Lucky Dube was South Africa’s leading reggae recording artist producing 20 albums in his career and winning over 20 local and international awards.

During his career he performed across the world and shared the stage with music stars such as Sinead O’Connor, Peter Gabriel and Sting among others. He had only recently returned from a month-long tour of the US.

The price of human life in South Africa is at an all time low, perhaps this will be the turning point for the leadership of this country to pay attention to crime.

The Springboks are said to be dedicating tomorrows final to the memory of Lucky.
