No rest for Boka


The saying wafa wanaka does not seem to be applying to Roger Boka, the disgraced former champion of black empowerment. Instead of respecting him and letting his soul rest in peace, everyone seems to be dancing on his grave.

Though he had been reduced from a boastful business tycoon to a fugitive, Boka continues to be controversial even in his grave.

Now reports say he was owed more than $2 billion, less than half what he owed, but what is interesting is that when the list of those who owed him money was released, it appeared it was only the small fry that was named.

The debtors list is reported to have been tampered with extensively with several names and amounts being removed. Doesn’t this raise questions about how much Boka was owed? And in whose interest was it to destroy the records? Could it have been Boka himself or those who owed him money?

He cannot answer for himself now but those who owe him money whose names were removed off the list must be thanking God he died before spilling the beans.
