Leave the Late Rebecca to Rest in Peace
When KSB published information about the late Rebecca Mwakisopile, the purpose was to inform friends, sympathizers and well-wishers about a Prayer meeting scheduled for Saturday July 30th 2011. Unfortunately, disturbing developments have been noted by KSB’s Editorial Board prompting this intervention.
Some commentators have taken advantage of the comments section to write very unacceptable comments which are fundamentally unsubstantiated and in total disregard to the tragic and difficult time Rebecca’s family is undergoing at this point in time.
After studying these comments, KSB has not only decided to pull them down but also to close the comments section of the post to end the agony the family may be undergoing as a result of anonymous postings of unsubstantiated claims that have no direct bearing on the Prayer meeting advertised.
The Rebecca post was not any type of post at KSB. It was an announcement and after a careful study of the content of the comments, the conclusion of KSB’s Editorial Board is that these comments are irrelevant and unacceptable from the point of view of the message in the article.
It must be appreciated that the late Rebecca is not anonymous in the announcement as opposed to the commentators who may me harboring ulterior motives. Under the circumstances, we empathize with the family and concur that the offending comments ought to go down. This will allow the family and friends alike to mourn in peace. This is the minimum we can do to help at the moment.
We wish to note that legally, there is no law being broken through the publication of the comments. As a matter of policy, we rarely pull down comments at KSB without a court injunction. However, on this post, and after a careful consideration of the weighty issues involved, it is the position of KSB that the post should be comment-free. We hope that concerned readers will agree with us on this one issue.
Rebecca is not here to defend herself against anything. Her passing was a tragic event that shocked all those who knew and loved her and what her soul deserves now is to be allowed to Rest In Peace.
