"Why didn't he come back as soon as he got well? Was he expecting the woman to wait for him after 5yrs?
"He should go and remarry and leave her alone biko."
"Why didn't he come back as soon as he got well?"??? He went missing!!!! Its not his fault. And I don't think his wife is wrong for her remarriage but I wish she could just take him back, cos obviously for five years, she'd have been the most of what he was thinking about."
"But the thing is where was he for that 5 years? Why returning after 5years? The rescue took that long? He lost his memory? He was in coma for 5years? He was declared dead because he was missing for long? Or na movie?"
