Africa mourns one of its beloved sons Lucky Dube

South African reggae music icon and singer against Apartheid, Lucky Dube who was gunned down in downtown Johannesburg on 18th October 2007, a month ago is still being missed by millions of his fans across Africa and the world. Mr Dube who was the first black artist to have a record played by a white radio station in South Africa during the Apartheid Era, is known all across Africa and the World for his music and love of peace.

He was killed in a botched car jacking, by a gang of four men who where later caught by the South African police. Although Lucky attempted to escape the scene, he had been fatally wounded from the hijacker's attempt to steal his motor vehicle, and he died almost instantly.

Senseless and random, the death of Lucky Dube leaves a great void in the music industry, as 25 years of music suddenly ends in tragedy.

Mr Lucky Philip Dube "Lucky Dube" born 3rd August 1964 in Ermelo, Mpumalanga province, South Africa.

Having watched him perform as a young man in South Africa, I must say he reminded me of another reggae superstar who died tragically in a similar way (Peter Tosh) who died aged 43, just like Lucky Dube and almost the same day as well, despite all of this not so inviting news south Africa especially Cape Town still remains one of the most visited places by tourists, sun seekers and young backpackers from across the globe, who just can not get enough of this magnificent southern African country which boasts among its major attractions the famous table mountain, drakensburgh mountains, the kruger national park where one can see Africa's big five.

Cape Town is known for its sophisticated nightlife, great wine and romantic restaurants not to mention some of the best fish dishes in the world.

So those of you who might have been alarmed by the tragic death of one of Africa's most loved sons, I say to you don't be, my heart goes out to his family and he will always be remembered as one of the greatest "Sons Of Africa"

Crime in South Africa is getting under control now, thanks to the president Mbeki, who has formed a special force to tackle car jacking and violent crime, which was spiralling out of control.

South Africa is a wonderful place to travel to especially within the next two years, the first ever world cup to be staged on African soil will be in south Africa in 2010 and Cape Town will be host to most of the games.

Those travelling on a budget will be happy to know that almost all hostels, youth hostels
, budget hotels, cheap hostels, guesthouses, bed & breakfast hostel, discount hotels and lodgings are open 247 and are of very high standard compared to many places around the world and not to mention how affordable and cheap things are in South Africa.
