ACTUALLY he was a very hard working young man! A very good friend of mine. He worked harder than any man I have EVER met. He was not on welfare!!! He owned his own home and was very smart financially. So please we ask that you do not assume that because someone is from another country that they came here for a welfare check. Most of the people on it are born bread AMERICANS. Its said that I have to to say that, even with me being an American myself. But it is true.
RIP Samuel, we love and miss you dearly.

All i can say is that he was the kindest guy i ever met and he had a bright smile that could lift my spirit when i was sad. God must have wanted him in heaven with him to spare him the harsh cruel world we live in. We have lost a wonderful young man who had a vision and dreams even to fight for a country that was not his. He was planning to join the military. So before you post nasty comments on here please think twice.My prayers and condolenses go out to his family and friends.RIP samuel.

All I ask is WHY is it that in the headlines they feel they need to bother mentioning that this man is Kenyan?

It's sad that some of you don't even feel the need to say sorry for a fellow man how has died in such a tragic way. What bothers you is that he was a Kenyan. If he was your brother ,would you feel sorry for him? Shame on you.

Sad,so sad.I can just picture his sobbing family waiting at the Jomo Kenyatta international airport to collect his remains in a nice flag rapped coffin.So sad for his family and Kenya as well.Kenya needs the skills and expertise of such people.Can you imagine we're facing an acute shortage of health workers,engineers etc.And when Kenyan expatriates with such skills die,our problems are compounded.

Easy. If they would not have done that, then this piece on Topix wouldn't have gotten riled up!
