  1. Honestly, I don’t get it. Tuku never walked around with security in his life. Now some people think he needs security in death. The family had no security issues until………..

  2. Funeral is funeral there is no need to block people not to enter unless if they is some certain issues which we don’t know .But political is not involved with tuku,s funeral

  3. He must thank God for being blocked entering otherwise an evil plan set against him was forthseen planted by false love pretenders. Sometime to loose a chance to pick a bus lift full of passengers it’s painful .You only realise God when earpassed that the bus got in an accident and nobody survived .So Mr President put everything , disturbances and luck’s in the hands of the creater
