This guy named Settie Kaunda has been of violent nature since our colej days at Skyway……I remember in 2010 he was arrested and found guilty of GBH and was given a lenient sentence coz of being a student. I think it is a lesson to all the young lads who do martial arts or Taekondo like him not to abuse the skills and tactics imparted for self defence. I wonder…………


Dats very bad. jst treat them fairly to the deceased one
