    Whatever you do in life . . .
    . . . you shall live only all the days of your life – however long, however short – no more, no less.
    And Zex has lived his.
    …………………………………………………………………….
    When Socrates was found guilty and about to be executed, he said . . .
    ” . . . the hour of departure has come, and we go our separate ways; I to die, and you, to live.
    Which of these two is better; only God knows.” (ibid).

    . . . What’s known however, is that . . .
    To the non-believer, death is the end of everything;
    . . . but to the believer, death is but another life began;
    We have every reason to believe that Zex was a believer;
    . . . seen from the establishment of his church – Synagogue for Hope.
    And we thus can safely conclude that his death is just the begining of another life.
    ……………………………………………………………………..
    But what kind of life? With certainty, we can not tell.
    What we know however, is that God is only concerned with the present us.
    . . . thus we shall inherit paradise, not for the righteous life we lived 10 yrs ago; but the day we die.
    . . . corollary, we shall be thrown into hell not for ills we did 10 years ago; but those with us on the day we die.
    We have already established that Zex’s establishment of a church is a clear display of; or want of righteousness.

    1. Socrates was a great thinker. Never feared to die even in the face of death. Stood for what he believed in.

    I am very sorry to hear the death of a professional comedian Izeck.
    He was a great man when it comes to stand on the podium to act.
    May his sorrow rest in peace.

    John Nyanga popularly known as “Izeki” made us all laugh even at a time when it was impossible to laugh. His talent was the best in his time. He will be greatly missed, but not forgotten. Despite the fact that I am now living in the U.S. I still watch Izeki and Jakobo on you tube. May the God of comfort continue to watch over Izeki’s family. May Izeki’s soul rest in peace.
