Well wonder what other posters think of 4 days mourning, and another public holiday on the 25th June? My main remembrances of this President are his apparent lack of knowledge about any of the events which led up to the disastrous explosion at Mari near the main power station, which in turn led to the deaths of 13 people. Soldiers and emergency service members.
Plus the way his Government handled the countries finances which contributed to the financial collapse in 2013.
May he rest in peace.

Was there 4 days of public mourning for the unfortunates who were 'murdered' by him due to his stupid & inadequate governance!?

I most certainly do not hope he rests in peace! He got away with a crime.

I know what it means. WHL was saying he hoped the map rested in peace. He wasn't telling you to do anything.
