"First and foremost, let me send my condolences to the family. I remember the family would always make me feel welcome every time I visited them. That's the reason why I decided to come and console the family today. We pray that God will continue resting his soul in eternal peace. Thank you," Salasya stated in his condolence speech before his attention was drawn to a local politician who stood close by.
