I can confirm that he just died. Connie is busy with the funeral arrangements.
Efforts by the publication to solicit comments from Connie, Shona’s wife, drew a blank as her phone, understandably, just rang unanswered.
Earlier this week, Sunday World reported that Shona was on a ventilator in ICU and his condition had recently worsened.
A group of specialists reportedly performed a heart operation on Shona. He was admitted more than a week ago in a restricted area accessible only to doctors and only a few select nurses.
Another source close to the situation was reported as saying Shona was fine before he started complaining about chest pains and not being able to breathe properly.
According to the source, they took it lightly because Shona is a fit and healthy guy who leads a healthy lifestyle.
Little did they know that the situation would turn bad.
