Reggae singer Luciano left the island on Saturday to do shows in the countries of South Africa and Malawi, despite rising fears in Jamaica that the Ebola virus which is ravishing the western areas of the African continent could reach local shores.
Those fears have been heightened since an article emerged last week that Malawi’s porous borders could put the country at risk. On August 28th, the Nyasa Times reported that two refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo, ran away from health officials who had isolated them to be scanned to confirm if they had the deadly Ebola virus before they could enter the country.
Entertainment manager and tour organiser Copeland Forbes told bounce876.com that Luciano left the island on Saturday.
“I spoke to his manager Sonia over the weekend and she told me had left on Saturday. I was surprised because I thought that he was not going to go again because he was supposed to leave at the end of September. When I spoke to her, I asked if he still wanted to chance it, and she said yes, and I said, well, if that is the case, I wish him all the best then,” Forbes said.
It is understood that Luciano will perform in Malawi and South Africa during his trip.
