The voice of “The Doctor”, Remmy Ongala is quiet at age 63. This is more than a loss to music, it is a loss to all Africans who care about the issues of our continent. For instance, he was an early, important and effective influence on issues like HIV/Aids at a time when most of Africa was still in denial. Think of his early nineties song “Mambo Kwa Soksi” about condom use.
Hamba kahle, Doctor!
