Comedy of errors

A man checked into a hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send a mail to his wife. He accidentally typed the wrong email address, and without realizing he sent the mail to a widow who has just returned from her husband's funeral. The widow decided to check her mail, expecting condolence messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message she fainted. The son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor and saw the computer screen which read:

'to my loving wife, i know you are surprised to hear from me, they have computers here and we are allowed to send mails to loved ones. I 've just been checked in. How are you and the kids? The place is really nice but am lonely here. I have made necessary arrangement for your arrival tomorrow. Expecting you darling. I can't wait to see you.'

President Jacob Zuma has today, on behalf of the Government and the people of South Africa, extended the country’s deepest condolences to the Government and people of the Russian Federation and in particular, to the family of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov, following his assassination on Monday evening, 19 December 2016, in Ankara.

President Zuma said: “The South African Government joins the international community in condemning this brutal attack against a diplomat, which is in violation of the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. We would like to convey our deepest condolences to H.E President Vladimir Putin, the Government of the Russian Federation, and in particular to the family of the Ambassador Karlov. We also wish those injured in the attack, a speedy and full recovery.”

“Terrorism in any form and from whichever quarter constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and any acts of terrorism are criminal, unjustifiable and cannot be condoned.” To this end, South Africa wishes to reiterate its commitment to international initiatives aimed at fighting the scourge of terrorism and violent extremism,” said the President.
