Social media users react
"A king and more...this just increased my respect for him."
"Apart from sending them money and getting accommodation, pls itele, try and have a good relationship with your kids. It shows you don’t talk to them often that’s why you don’t know where they stay or anything personal about them. Get your first son a phone so you can speak to them directly time to time. May God give you speedy recovery."
