This week Clement celebrated his 30th birthday on Wednesday just a few days after he buried one of his close friends Akhumzi Jezile.
And just a year ago he buried his other close friend, the late Dumi Masilela who was killed during a hijacking attempt in August.
On his birthday, Clement shared a touching message dedicated to himself as a form of encouragement for all the trials and tribulations he’s been through in his 30-years of life.
In the message, Clement shared how he was born under unfavorable conditions, which included coming from a poor background and also losing both his parents at a young age.
What is also heartbreaking is that this is probably the first time Clement opens up about attempting suicide twice.
Parts of his message to himself read:
“Your parents left you as a teenager with nothing but look at you. You stood the worst of times and lost so many loved ones but look at you now. You were rejected so many times and told you are not talented but look at you. You attempted suicide twice but God knew it was not yet time, now look!”
Indeed, look at him now.
