“We are in a state of shock and a very somber mood because our colleague is one of our flawless writers, he is a gem and he’s been at the presidency for the past eight years. This is a guy we are talking about and we cannot understand why he has to go that way. We are deeply saddened by the news that our colleague was involved in an accident. The thought of losing a colleague is so heavy on our heart.”
